Yep. Got first one Friday night. Second sat morning, and the last one yesterday afternoon vzw and winphonesupport wanted me to pull the SIM and reseat. Did that last night so lets see how long it takes to do it again. The latest yesterday happened while it had been sitting there on my desk for bout an hour. So its not like it got jarred or something.

Heres a tip that stopped my Sim errors 4 days before the portico updates and i was getting sim errors on an hourly basis.
Remove the sim tray.
Give the sim card a wipe with a microfibre cloth.
Blow into the Sim tray slot.
Re-insert the sim and turn the phone back on again.

The original poster is asking if people are still having problems after the software update, or if the firmware update is needed to fix this.
The second poster replied saying he is still having problems, but his phone has not yet been updated.... so of course he is still having them.
I was simply informing him that his phone has not yet been updated since he in on Verizon.
If you want to talk about arrogance, why don't you mention how this 21 year old kept trying to inform you that a software update would fix your problem. And how you kept arguing with him saying that it was not a software error and that it was fault hardware for which HTC was to blame.
Don't forget to mention that your faulty phone was fixed via the software/firmware update and you are no longer having problems. Why can't you just admit that you were wrong and that this 21 year old was right?

Its the way your response came across. Its arrogant. A couple of extra words here or there and your response comes across slightly less like your telling the guy hes blatantly wrong. For all you know he could have had the update, its a staggered rollout so all devices will get them at different times.
My response is a simple fix thats been proven to work, someone else in the forum suggested it, I tried it and it works, others have tried it and it works. It has nothing at all to do with software.

Anyways, your response to the thread didn't even answer the poster's question. You neglected to state that your phone was having SIM problems and that the update fixed those problems. You were too worried about what I said....
He wants to know if the software updates fixed the problems so that he knows if they should have fixed his problems too.
Also, it's not a staggered rollout in the way you're understanding it. What's staggered about it is the carriers. If one person with a Verizon HTX 8X gets the update, then anyone with a Verizon HTC 8X who checks for updates will receive it too. Just trying to help you understand that a little better. Hopefully you don't think I'm being arrogant with that too....
