Update for EVO 4G coming June 28th?
The EVO 4G may be the nation's first 4G enabled handset, but that doesn't mean it is too perfect to need an upgrade now and then. In early June, a maintenance upgrade was sent out and speculation is that the device will get another one on June 28th. As we reported, some users are having problems with the phone's Wi-Fi reception which is one of the issues that this rumored upgrade is supposed to address. Other things that could be updated include Exchange ActiveSync policy improvements and improvements to battery life. The latter would be accomplished by making improvements to a syncing problem the phone has with Facebook. The EVO 4G's frames per second problem, which caps the rate at 30fps, is not expected to be fixed as part of this release.

Being a technician for Sprint, we have not experienced any of the above issues. There is not official announcement for a firmware update as of now.

There does need to be firmware updates which will come along in time. There is a problem with some EVO's as my first one had which is poor sensitivity on the radios. meaning the wifi, the bluetooth, and the phone reception all take more signal strength than it should. for example i would be less than 10 ft from my wifi router and the phone would show poor signal strength, any farther away the EVO wouldn't even show the router at all. the bluetooth earpiece would only work within 8 ft. as desertmike above should know HTC sent out a tech bulletin about this, which is why they gave me another EVO. It is the best phone in the world but it does have room to grow. i hope this firmware update is real.
