HTC Hero users on Sprint now have something to look forward to — an update is coming. Unfortunately, it is not Android OS 1.6 or 2.0, but it may be something that is just as welcomed — a maintenance release update.
According to the Sprint Community Forums;
“A maintenance release is being developed for the Hero to address key items such as SMS and DST issues. The target launch is in the next few weeks, but I do not have the exact date or a list of everything that will be included yet. I will post updates as they are made available to me.”
Now, while I hate to say that I have not seen any issues, because that is usually the quickest way to bring a problem. But personally, I have not seen anything dealing with SMS or daylight savings on my Hero. Of course, I have yet to send or receive an SMS message using the default app, because the first thing I installed was the Google Voice app and that is how I send my SMS messages. Still, anything dealing with maintenance will still be welcomed by me.
