Minor MyTouch 3G Update Cometh

feedme

While updates are always welcome, unfortunately this is not the update that MyTouch 3G owners have been patiently waiting for. Android 1.6 update DMD64 OTA goes out tonight and merely “improves MyTouch user’s call performance.” No additional features are available here so it’s fairly minor but hey, improving call quality never hurts right? For the record, those picking up the MyTouch 1.2 later today will already have this update preinstalled so no need to wait patiently for this one.

Receive the update notification, install now or install later. Device reboots and boom, improved call quality. Get it, got it, good.

    yay?

    I wonder how this will really boost my calls thou? Wait and see I guess

      Where the hell are our 2.1 release anyways T?

      • jrperiod

        That would be nice. My other question would be if they don’t want us to have 2.0 for what ever reason(Cuz they want us to junk our G1′s/Mytouch’s for the N1) At least give us a 1.7 or something along those lines.

      • J

        So, T-Mobile wants you to junk your old phone (which they lost money on when you go it unless you paid the full retail price) for a phone they make $0 on when you buy.

        Here is a little known secret. T-Mobile does not care which phone you use as long as you buy the voice, text, and data plans. They would prefer you go out and buy the phone yourself because they lose money everytime they sell a phone. They want you to buy accessories, but the phone itself is something they lose money on to entice you to come to T-Mobile. T-Mobile makes money off phone accessories and plans. Phone makers make the money on the phones.

    Hooray and booo at the same time.

    All I want is an official statement from TMO saying yay or nay on 2.0

    • Cha-Chi Rodriguez

      How many of you so called smart people with smart phones going to understand that TMOBILE DOES NOT CONTROL THE UPDATES FOR GOOGLE ANDROID (ANY) PHONES!!!!, T-mobile is a service provider-not a manufacturer of software updates?

      Please stop calling 611 for updates you stupid people. You are wasting your time. Have patience. Does anyone know the difference in 1.6 and 2.0 any ways. Lemme guess, you just want it???

  • Edwin

    Sigh… still no sense ui

    • FILA

      Sense UI is to overrated, Blur just looks to cluttered, Samsungs Cuby thing, well thats just gimmicky. Only thing Sense has goin for it, is the weather widget. Stock Android for me

      • AD

        Agreed

      • Cybersedan

        With you all the way, Stock Android 2.1 is all I need.

    Don’t think I ever got the previous OTA for the missed call improvement. Not that I can’t live without it but I’m wondering how they pick who gets what and when.
    What is supposed to be the current build for 1.6 (I mean before the DMD64)?

    Got the MyTouch 3G and 2.0 or 2.1 would be nice of course but I guess the only things I’d really like are pinch zoom and a faster browser

    Do this update work with rooted mytouch too or do i have to bring it back to cupcake

  • dvd03

    well it is a phone so better voice quality is nice..

  • revengineer

    Will this mess with root/spl?

  • tom

    when is the 2.0 update coming out for my touch

  • rriska

    I suspect we will never see 2.0 for myTouch 3G users, however, better calls will be nice, and aside from the animated home screens, the only thing I see in Sense UI that appeals to me is the great weather widget, and you can download a nearly identical widget from ‘beautiful home.’ It works great. I have compared it to my buddies new Hero, and I can’t tell much difference.

    • Ms. Matrix

      Which site is that?, I’m curious to see how it looks.

  • Paul S.

    I thought the whole point of “with Google” phones was that we would get the updates first…???…

  • http://www.simplethoughtproductions.com Josh Chesarek

    Well I have a MT3G and it got the update this morning and updated fine without issue. My wife’s MT3G however is a different story. After the update it is saying that there is no sim card in the phone. Have tried removing it and such but no luck. Headed to a T-Mobile store to see if they can fix the issue. There were no errors reported after the update. Software is working fine, just no network.

    • http://www.simplethoughtproductions.com Josh Chesarek

      OK, they claim that the update fried the sim card. I did not know or think that is possible but a new card and everything is working well. The other card was only 4 months old so it should not have died. Go figure. New card and service is back on.

    • Mista

      Can you post the link for the update if you can Android 1.6 update DMD64 OTA

      • http://www.simplethoughtproductions.com Josh Chesarek

        I didn’t use a link, our phones just offered the update this morning. Is there a way to find a link or useful info after the update?

      • cu2cool

        Just go to settings -> about phone -> system updates.

  • anthony

    the 2.0 update will be here in the spring…..but no update for thr G1

  • Ms. Matrix

    I don’t have an android phone yet, but I’m getting the cliq XT. I just don’t understand why if it’s a new phone, why have an older ver. of android. But I’ll guess I’ll see how it is when I get it. I love how the Sense UI looks, I like the clock and of course the weather widget is nice.
