Sprint BlackBerry Curve 8350i Update on the Way

OK Sprint BlackBerry Curve 8350i owners... listen up! Just got a message from Sprint that you'll want to be aware of. Here's the scoop:

A voice echo issue with the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8350i has been reported on a limited subset of devices. The root cause of the voice echo issue has been identified and is being addressed in a software release MR2 that should be available in March.

Devices purchased before Feb. 8 will need to upgrade to software load MR2 when it becomes available to address the echo issue. Devices sold after Feb. 8 should not experience the echo issue.

We recommend customers update from launch software to the MR1 (4.6.1.128 (225)) software load now, then update to the MR2 software when available. Meanwhile if a customer is experiencing the voice echo issue we suggest using the wired headset that comes in the box or using the speakerphone until the new software is available.

Software updates can be found at www.sprint.com/downloads.

Big thanks to Sprint for keeping all of the Curve 8350i owners here informed! For more info on this device, be sure to visit our BlackBerry Curve 8350i forums.
