Google Wallet bug is a thing of the past with the HTC EVO 4G LTE thanks to its new update
Well that certainly arrived faster than expected, especially when it was only yesterday that we were presented with the news about a future software update for the Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE. Not wasting any time at all, Sprint announced today the availability of a new software update that seemingly addresses the nagging issue with Google Wallet for the venerable smartphone.

Already, the handset received a few updates purported to fix the issue that prevented the HTC EVO 4G LTE from using the Google Wallet app properly. However, it seems that it’s all taken care of in this latest update – meaning, handset owners are now enabled for payments via Google Wallet. In addition, the new software (version 1.22.651.3) also brings forth the following items:

  • Google security updates
  • Wifi disconnect issue
  • Time zone issue
  • Google Wallet fix
  • Side loaded video pause issue
  • Random power cycling issue
  • Pioneer Bluetooth Car Kit connection issue
  • Gallery app crash
  • Calendar reminder (all day even time) issue

Currently, it’s being made available as an over-the-air update, which means that handset owners should be seeing a notification indicating that it’s ready for installation. Naturally, if you have yet to see it, then simply do the tried and true method of checking for it manually through the Android settings menu. Let’s hope that this is absolutely the last time we hear about issues relating to Google Wallet and the HTC EVO 4G LTE.

Correction on that headline. There wasn't any bug with with Google Wallet. The bug was with HTC and it's custom implementation of Android. Google Wallet worked fine on every other NFC equipped Android phone so obviously there was something about the E4GLTE that was at issue.
