Well, here's an unexpected surprise for all the Replenish owners out there -- Sprint's greenest handset is now getting the update to Android 2.3. The update should already be rolling out in OTA fashion, bringing a number of enhancements to the device:

  • Upgraded OS from Froyo to Gingerbread (Android 2.3)
  • Increased operating system speed and efficiency
  • One touch word selection and copy/past
  • Improved power management
  • Downloads Management
  • SMS messaging fix


As usual, the update is rolling out in stages, but it should hit all devices within ten days. To see if it's available on your device, hit Settings > About phone > Update system software.

    Good luck. Hope these owners have a better time than the LG Optimus S did in September 2011. The Gingerbread upgrade caused multiple charging problems that still have not been resolved. Had to downgrade back to Froyo to get the phone to charge properly.

    to fix the issues you should have just hard reset the device. ik people that had the same issue, they hard reset it and it was fixed. that or got a new one from the sprint store, or the stores they got it from

    Yeah, great.

    A 51 meg download that burned through the battery in less than two hours, for DAYS while trying to get the file, blocked a full charge, heated the 'phone to the point I could not comfortably hold it in my hand.

    Great job. Just like in December after the CIQ debacle, another Sprint update that resulted in overheated 'phones and dead batteries.

    And "Oh, you'll have to schedule an appointment with a Service Center. There's nothing we can do without having the 'phone in front of us."
