Sidekick 3 getting an OTA

Sounds like the Sidekick 3 is getting a Over The Air (OTA) update to upgrade the radio firmware. Doesn’t look like anything significant or major improvements, but all you Sidekick 3 owners may see it popping up on your device soon. I assume it’s rolling out to the pioneer group first, which is basically a small (random) subset of the Sidekick 3 users. As long as that rolls out without significant problems it will start being sent out to everyone.

    Is it possible that this is a fix to a bug that was in the original radio’s firmware? I used to have a 3, but after about a half a year, I would lose connection every couple hours or so, and after a few weeks of it, I got a message saying that there was a hardware error, and it never connected again. Is it possible that something happened to cause the firmware to degrade over time until the phone lost contol of the radio?

    I took this update this morning (May 8 2008) and my Sidekick 3 has already missed a call and refused to place a call twice… I have to say I am not terribly impressed. I’m not sure where else to go to read reports… I might call T-Mobile this weekend and ask what’s up. It could just be coincidence, so I’m going to be keeping an eye on it.
