Planned maintenance updates for the T-Mobile myTouch 4G and 4G Slide bring mostly fixes
HTC devices such as the Sensation and Vivid are finally getting in with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, thanks to some recently available software updates, but that doesn’t mean older HTC handsets are left out of the loop in terms of general updates.
Well, if you happen to own either the T-Mobile myTouch 4G or 4G Slide, devices that have been around for quite some time now, you’ll be pleased to find upcoming maintenance updates headed your way. Basically, they upgrade the software of these Gingerbread devices to version 2.32.531.1, and for the most part, it should comfort those who are still dreaming about the possibility of Ice Cream Sandwich.
For the T-Mobile myTouch 4G, the new software’s contents include a Google security update, new version of the Swype keyboard, and some software improvements. Meanwhile, the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slides gets treated to pretty much the same items, but owners can also expect improvements to Wi-Fi calling, the Genius Button, and the Netflix app experience. Currently, the maintenance update is rolling out to the myTouch 4G starting today, while the myTouch 4G Slide will see its update starting on March 19th.
Indeed, it’s nothing that’s going to dramatically stir up the experience on each device, but nonetheless, we’re certain that handset owners will still appreciate the continuing efforts to keep both devices up to snuff.

Wow, I never thought I'd see another update past Gingerbread. Can't wait to see how unbelievably long it takes this one to roll out.

Cool finally an update but I still would like to see Android 4.0 on this device cause I only got mine last year and I really like my phone enough to see it updated and I'm keeping my HTC MyTouch 4G Slide but if it don't get Android 4.0 I'm getting a Samsung or Motorola Android.

Alright this is some horrible communication. The last update, T-Mobile said, was to 1. Something, but instead, it was to 2.32.531.1. I know this for sure because I have it right now. They care so little of this phone that they cant even stay on track of their own updates. If I have 2.31.531 right now, I wonder what this dumb update will be.

they should just give up on the Mytouch 4G... the 4G slide is solid, but the non-slide counterpart is junk

The MyTouch 4G Slide I have has been giving me problems all around I've tryed a factory reset, tryed calling T-Mobile, tryed asking HTC for help but they're as much help as a one legged man in a ass kicking contest, So I think the HTC MyTouch 4G Slide is getting discontinued soon
