A forgotten name in Sprint’s lineup of 4G handsets is about to get an update to fix an pesky bug. The HTC EVO Shift 4G was launched in January of this year, which seems light years away when it comes to smartphones. A 3.6 inch WVGA screen and a 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7630 processor give away the difference that 7 months can make in the handset industry, although to be fair, this was never meant to be a high-end phone.
One thing that the HTC EVO Shift 4G has that its big brother doesn’t is the side sliding QWERTY keyboard, which helps promote the device as a 4G enabled handset for those who like to text. The problem, though, is that a bug is affecting the ability of MMS/SMS messages to be sent to the recipient. The good news is, next Monday users will be getting an update from Sprint that is like the proverbial can of Raid-it kills bugs dead. Although fairy tale endings don’t normally occur in real life, after the update to v2.76.651.5, HTC EVO Shift 4G users will live happily ever after.
