Sprint has announced that an OTA (over the air) update is now available for all current HTC Android phones on their network, specifically the HTC EVO 4G, the HTC EVO Shift 4G, the HTC View 4G, the HTC EVO 3D, the HTC EVO Design 4G, and the HTC Wildfire S. They say they worked closely with HTC after news of the data mishandling by HTC phones was brought to light, and now offer a solution for all affected phones. Like every OTA, they will be going out in waves -- if you don't get it today, you will shortly. To manually check for the update, go to Settings >System updates > HTC software update > Check Now, and if the update is available for you it will begin the download and installation process.
We still want to remind you to always watch what applications you install. When your smartphone is as powerful as the desktop PC's we used 5 years ago, they are susceptible to the same security issues. Be safe, not sorry.
