I have been out of the loop for a while and haven't been keeping up with One X news. At this point is it a given that an OTA fix is coming for the multitasking issue? If so, when can we expect it for AT&T?

Re: When is the OTA update for multitasking issue coming for AT&T

Mutlitasking is working fine. HTC has confirmed it. If you dont like how it handles it you may wanna return the phone and get something that fits your needs a little bit better. I for one have no issues with the multitasking currently. Just a heads up in case you just got the phone.

Also if you researched the forums you would have found this information. It's had its own subject for a long while now.

I returned mine after HTC's response about the issue.
Unacceptable (IMO) for any experienced android user....this is one of the top features. It would stop music, tunein radio, whatever....and re-start in the middle of playing.
I could have lived with the other nagging bugs that will be addressed with updates. Price you pay for wanting the latest gadgets.
I'm sure the gs3 i pre ordered will release with issues also...they all do. However, from all the video reviews I have seen it has normal multitasking.

Will this update "change" the way the One X handles multitasking?

I dont think so. I personally have not used the update though. Maybe someone who has can chime in for ya. Last I heard the phone is working the way HTC wants it too.

Correct me if I'm wrong but once the custom rooms start flowing wouldn't that be an option to fix too?

I think you mean ROMs and yes I think it will. I have heard that some ROMs already to help with it if your not a fan of the stock ROM.

.

I'm calling BS on that.
At no time did the multitasking issue cause music or tune in or Pandora to restart. I can switch tasks all day long, and yes, web pages reload, but audio plays uninterrupted.

Its not necessary to exaggerate the problem in order to make your point that multitasking is broken.

Re: When is the OTA update for multitasking issue coming for AT&T

Htc has said that multitasking is working as designed. Based on that response I think they are just seeing if the community backs down. With the flood of emails and calls they had enough of an uproar to even make a public statement, meaning that its becoming enough of a problem. My gut tells me that there will be a "fix" to this issue by HTC because enough people have raised concern on the other hand it may be some time before it is released because if it is a kernel issue they are going to want to tweak it then see how well it handles sense 4 before releasing. So don't hold your breathe its going to be awhile, but I feel it will come.

I hope so too. There are just too many good things about this phone that I hope this one issues does not spoil. Right now the One X is sold out on Amazon. I am hoping by the time it comes back in stock (I've heard it could be a month), HTC has pushed out some sort of an update. Then I think this phone will be as close to perfect as possible.

Re: When is the OTA update for multitasking issue coming for AT&T

Folks that are saying the multitasking is fine - I don't agree. If I start writing a post on this msg board in Chrome, and switch over to check a text or something, and come back - the page reloads and all my text is gone. That just doesn't seem like it should be working "as designed."
