Phone dialer disappears from lock screen after update

EVO 3D after update

It's a phrase we've heard all too often: "Looking at it, something just ain't right." What you see here is the lockscreen on the Sprint HTC EVO 3D after we applied that pre-launch update that fixed a bug in the calendar. As Ozzie1p points out in the Android Central Forums, it looks like it unfixed something in the phone dialer, as the shortcut no longer appears there, nor does it show in the list of apps from which we can chose to put on the lock screen. Whoopsie.

Changing scenes didn't seem to fix it, but a hard reset does, for that what's worth. (So if you get the update first thing and lose the phone dialer, just do a hard reset before setting up your phone.) If anybody else has any better fixes, sing out in the forum thread linked below.

Regardless, it looks like we'll be needing an update for that update, please and thank you.
