If you have an HTC Evo Shift and you’re experiencing bugs with your device specifically, like sending out text or picture messages, you can relax. Sprint is releasing an OTA update that’s expected to begin rolling out on/around August 8th to fix the SMS/MMS issue. Evo Shift 4G owners should be prompted for the update however, if you feel like taking the more proactive approaching you can jump into your phone’s Settings > System Updates > HTC Software Updates > Check Now as soon as the clock strikes 12. After that, you can get back to sexting.
