Major carrier AT&T announced last week plans to roll out the hotly anticipated Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for LG Nitro HD beginning July 31.
In addition, the operator confirmed that important software updates would be delivered for HTC One X and HTC Inspire 4G
, though AT&T did not unveil any details on exact release dates.
The carrier also stated that more Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich updates would be available in the future, but AT&T did not specify what devices would receive the upgrade.
Today, HTC and AT&T has announced that the Inspire 4G smartphone is eligible for a software update.
Even though this is not Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, AT&T customers who own the device will be happy to know that it brings a few new features and updates, as well as some bug fixes and improvements.
The most important change is the addition of HTC Sense 3.0 UI, along with a Task Manager application and the AT&T Address Book.
The update also includes some call optimization improvements, which will result in fewer dropped calls. The security functionality of the smartphone has been enhanced as well.
Last but not least, a Contact Display bug has been fixed in the SMS/MMS Thread, and the Background Data Use has been improved.
The update is currently pushed OTA (over the air), so once it’s ready, HTC Inspire 4G users will receive a notification on their device, which will provide instructions to receive and install it.
However, those who did not receive the notification can manually check for the update by going to Settings / AT&T Software Update
/ Check for updates.
Makes sure the phone’s battery is at least 50% charged and that you connect the HTC Inspire 4G to a stable Wi-Fi network, which is required in order to download the software.
