Rogers pulls HTC Dream due to necessary 911 software fix

It seems that Rogers has (temporarily) stopped the sales of the HTC Dream due to issues with 911 calling. Current Dream owners were said to have been contacted by way of a text message directly from Rogers, but just in case you are curious or missed that message, the text read;

“URGENT 911 Calls: Please disable GPS location on your HTC Dream device to ensure all 911 calls complete. HTC is urgently working on a software upgrade and we will provide details shortly so you can re-enable GPS.”

Luckily that is easy enough to take care off. In order to disable the GPS location, simply navigate to Settings -> Location and then uncheck “Enable GPS Satellite.”

According to Rogers, the only device that was/is affected is the Dream and they are working to release a fix “shortly.”
