HTC EVO 3D gets OTA update to 2.95.651.6, fixes Swype
To those of you with an HTC EVO 3D, make sure you hit that update button! An OTA update started rolling out last week, bumping the software version up to 2.95.651.6. It’s a small update, with only one item in the changelog: “Swype functionality improvements.”
We first reported on this issue last March, and it’s since taken Sprint and HTC almost two months to resolve it. Apparently, in the area where Swype usually suggests a word, it would say simply, “Please Try Again.” A hard reset did not fix the issue, and one person even claimed that a Sprint rep simply advised him to upgrade to a new phone!
While I’m happy that it’s now resolved, I’m shocked it took this long. Then again, the EVO 3D has never received much love from Sprint – its Ice Cream Sandwich update was delayed more times than I care to remember, and its lifespan before it got “end of life” status from Sprint was also much shorter than the original EVO 4G. Well, you know what they say – only the good die young![Sprint] Thanks, Craig!
