Sprint Galaxy Nexus and Samsung Galaxy S3 Receive OTA Updates – EVO 4G LTE To Follow


Sprint has been busy updating the software on their 4G LTE lineup, starting with the Galaxy Nexus and Samsung Galaxy S3. Both these devices received similar updates addressing the usual bug fixes, with the common fix involving flipping the switch on the default 4G LTE setting from off, to on. I’ve been chatting with my Sprint buddy, and a similar update will soon be rolling out to the HTC EVO 4G LTE as well. Here’s the changelog as posted in the official Sprint Community forums:

If you’re not currently in one of Sprint’s few LTE markets and are looking to save on some battery life, now you know to use the appropriate method to turn the LTE switch back to off. Expect a changelog for the EVO LTE coming sometime in the next few days as well.

  1. I never seen any update for my S3 yet!

    1. Did you try going into Settings > About Phone > Check for Update? You can also Google how to force an update, if the OTA is indeed live, but people have said that they do not recommend it because it can be bad for your phone, apparently (I forget why, but you can search it).

      1. Yes I did, but no luck.
