HTC One S for T-Mobile gets update to Android 4.04 and  HTC Sense 4.1
T-Mobile customers sporting the HTC One S might notice an incremental update received on Wednesday that takes the handset from Android 4.0.3 to Android 4.0.4. At the same time, HTC Sense is updated from 4.0 to 4.1. This appears to be the same update that the European variant of the phone recently received and if so, U.S. users should notice an improvement in the performance of the device and some new features like the new quick settings available on the notifications page.

Other changes include improved Wi-Fi connectivity, which has been a problem for HTC One S users since the phone was first released, and an improvement in the performance of Bluetooth on the phone. The entire update weighs in at 150MB which the HTC One S will swallow faster over Wi-Fi. So we would suggest that you use Wi-Fi while updating the phone. That is, unless you need the update to improve the Wi-Fi connection on your HTC One S. Other items on the changelog include improvements in showing links on email, helps prevent the device from crashing, prevents streaming music from streaming, and brings improvements to the UI.

T-Mobile says to receive the update, your HTC One S must have Android 4.0.3 and have software version Software version 1.53.531.76 710RD or 1.84.531.2 710RD. The battery on your phone should be at least 50% charged with at least 140MB of storage free. The phone cannot be rooted for the update to be received.
