    Default Questions about the "New Features" of the OTA update

    Got the update. My TB was working well before and is running great now. GPS lock is MUCH faster now which is great. Looking at the list of "new" features with this OTA update I have a few questions...

    1) What is this "Desktop Cradle App" that is mentioned and where do I find it?

    2) What was "enhanced" in Call History view?

    3) "People Search Function" is now "enabled"...was it disabled or something before this OTA? What changed?



    That's all! Thanks!

    I searched the Market and found nothing. The V-cast apps wouldn't work on my phone until i turned off 4G. Once in I still couldn't find anything under desktop cradle.

    There is now an option in Settings -> Wireless and Networks -> Mobile Networks -> Network Mode

    The Gingerbread update coming soon *should* see a widget to toggle 3G/4G.

    To me, it appears that if i hit my PHONE, then long press on a name, I get choies that pop up on the contact i long pressed on that say options such as "view contact, view history, edit number, send txt, add to favorites, etc"

    If I am remembering correctly, on the old firmware when you selected "view history" it just showed you a running tally of the day and times you called the contact, but now it shows the length of the call. I dont remember it doing this on the old version because this was one of the things I really hated about the call history.

    Or maybe I'm just crazy..but to me it does seem like the call history tells you more information with this new release

    Interesting. The call length was there before for sure. I've checked that on several occasions. It does say "detailed call history" when you long press one of the names in the call history now. Not sure what's different.

    Any one know what the new "desktop cradle app" is???

    Correct - that's where I see it. Two choices: LTE/CDMA (default) and CDMA only

    Its already on the phone, but not obvious. Tap on the time in the HTC Clock widget. It will take you to the Desktop Clock app.
