    Hi guys

    I have had several issues develope since I downloaded the new update for my EVO (2.3.5). I am not sure if all the issues is due to the update or not. My phone was working fine before the update.

    First issue I have noticed is that when I try to make a phone call the call does not go through even though the phone acts like it is going through. (example green phone symbol in upper hand corner and red end call button.. No sound on phone or speaker phone). I have to re2nstart phone to fix this. IT has happened 5 or 6 times in 3 days.

    Second issue Battery life has been really bad. This morning I had a full charge and by 10am the full battery had depleted itself... Did not use phone at all.

    Third issue Unable to connect with network with data at times. Twitter, Facebook, Market, web pages will give a error about not being able update at this time or unable to connect. Tried updating the PRL to no avail.. Only way to fix at this point is to restart phone and everything works fine. Also I have noticed that some of my IM's will come in bunches upto 30 or so min after they were sent. I might get 5 - 10 messages at times at once.

    These are just a couple is anyone else going through this?

    I received the update a few days ago and i have not had any issues with it. Battery life is normal, calls working fine, sounds are all a go. I have heard of not all updates working the same on every phone, so idk. Good luck though.

    No issues. I'm absolutely not trying to gloat, but I honestly restarted my phone because I thought my battery indicator wasn't working since it hardly moved all day after the latest update. I don't know what changed, but I am getting much better battery life after the update. After an hour-long phone call, I finally saw a predictable drop, but the idle time seems to be much more efficient. Prior to the update, I was seeing decreased capacity. Now, it's fantastic....time will tell. Stock, minimal apps, and fully updated.

    Anyone seeing Wi-Fi signal connecting and disconnecting issues after update? Any ideas of a fix?

    No issues here except the battery drains quick and can't root.

    I would probably recommend that you do a factory reset. I always do this after an upgrade and have never had any issues... yeah, you will have to redo all your apps and such but I bet you wont have any more issues...

    Battery life when my phone is on standby has improved greatly.

    the only negative effect i've noticed since the upgrade, is that my phone defaults to speaker on calls. i am digging around for a fix. other than that, i am not encountering any problems.

    Same here. Not good as I travel and I am constantly kicked out of any secure site.

    Anyone know of a fix?

    Same issues here with Wi-fi. Bounces out of Wi-fi and over to 3G, sometimes loses connection completely, then switches back to Wi-fi. I'm standing next to my router the whole time. It's not a huge deal but can be pretty annoying at times.

    You CAN root it. You just have to use HTCDev.com to do it now.

    Update on the wifi dropping and returning issue: Over at the Sprint Forum, an user took their phone to Best Buy. Per the Best Buy employees, the only current work around is to go into the advanced wifi settings, select "Use Static IP", but do not enter any other information. Per that user, this fix does work.

    I will try it myself tonight. I called Sprint and took my phone to the Sprint store. Both blamed HTC and said that we would have to wait for another update (which probably will never happen given the EOL status).

    Has anyone with the WiFi issue tried flashing back to the old radio?

    Didn't work for me. Keeps bouncing back between WiFi and 3G. Was worth a shot though.

    I can't get mine to install. The phone restarts and trys to install update for a couple of seconds but then it stops at a screen with the little robot and an "!" in a triangle and locks up. Any suggestions? At first I thought it was cause mine was rooted so I set it back to S-On unrooted and tried again and got the same thing.

    If you have a custom recovery, the update won't be able to install. Though there's no need to unroot to take the OTA as there are rooted stock ROMs based on it already. A quick Google search for "EVO 4G 4.67.651.3 rooted" should yield the results you seek.

    I tried the static ip and it did not work. I did a factory reset and it did not work. (save yourself and don't listen to sprint and reset your phone) Tried the static ip after that and it didn't work.

    Whatever this update broke, it cannot be fixed. Not sure what to do next.

    have had the same problem for a few months - my wifi does this when the mobile network is checked (no longer automatically switches), so I have to manually turn on wifi and turn off mobile network as needed and vice versa. Kind of a pain, but beats a reset and only a couple more months until new phone time

    I went to Sprint to voice my opinion on the update. Just so happened that the person I talked to was the 'technical service' guy(I'll use that term loosely). He proceeds to tell me that he has updated many phones over the last week and I am the only one having any trouble.

    As he is thumbing through my phone, he says he can't do anything because my phone is rooted because hes never seen one that looks like mine(GoLauncher EX) and that mine has a kernel that hes never seen. There went my faith in the 'tech guy' as my phone has never been rooted. He told me they can run a diagnostic test that takes 30+ minutes and it will tell if it was rooted. I figured there was no use in trying to argue but I welcomed to do whatever he needed to do...

    After a few minutes of BS(hearing about how he was AT&T's tech guy since the iPhone launced and he knew all bout them, all about jailbreaking...), his answer was that the update contained items related to improve Sense, some security improvements blah blah blah. I left for work. Since then(2 days ago) I've switched back to using HTC Sense and battery life has vastly improved, but the WiFi deal is still going on. However, it does not seem to be as often as before. I'm going to continue to use Sense for a bit and see how that goes. If it don't improve, I'll pay an ETF and go back to my previous cell provider.
