No sooner that I get new firmware, I’m now finding bugs in the new firmware for my TELUS CDMA HTC Touch Diamond. What are these bugs you may ask?
- The phone loses it’s password for the EVDO data network randomly (this has happened twice over a two week period). The solution funny enough is to just put ANYTHING in the password field. It seems there is something up with authentication… Though the screen for this doesn’t seem the same as the screen in the setup wizard for the connection.
- I’m not sure if this is actually a bug or a “feature” of ActiveSync, but when an alert goes off, the phone tries to synchronize with your ActiveSync partnership (in my cases, OTA to Google Sync). I found this out when I set ActiveSync to manual so that I’d avoid having my phone prompt me for a password every few minutes…. Yeah, still got prompted when an alert went off.
Good news is, once you get something in that password field, it works. For how long is another question… I may be calling 611 in a week….
