Sprint pushes out AAN982 update for BlackBerry KEYone

Sprint is the process of pushing out an update to the BlackBerry KEYone. The nation's fourth largest wireless firm is currently the only U.S. carrier to offer a locked version of the phone. Verizon subscribers can purchase the CDMA unlocked model while T-Mobile and AT&T customers have to buy the unlocked GSM variant. The update, which carries build AAN982, also includes the August Android security patch. The update could also include a fix for the Sprint Mobile ID app which was enabling bloatware that the phone's user had disabled, and re-installing bloatware that was deleted. Sprint said it was working with BlackBerry on a fix, which might be included with this update.

Once you get the notification that the update has arrived on your KEYone, there are some things you should do before installing it. First, make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi signal. And check the battery on the phone, which should be fully charged.
