    Updates are always welcome, but it doesn't look like the sort of update to make people on other carriers impatient.

    Just got the update on my Radar
    Since this is the official, has the keyboard improved for you? I notice they didn't put it in the changelog, so I wonder if it is something they couldn't fix? I used 8107 on my Radar before I sold it for my Lumia 710 and noticed no difference with the firmware on my phone....

    I just got the 8107 update as well, I don't see a huge improvement personally, but I also didn't have any of the keyboard or other problems some people did. Still, it is pretty comforting to see our device getting updated. :)

    Haven't gotten the push yet. :/ Wonder if I can "force" it by connecting to WP7 Connector. Hmmm...

    I'm on my 3rd try but it just doesn't want to install. It just hangs near the end of the install process, then the computer becomes unresponsive and that's all she wrote. I've tried reinstalling Zune, etc. etc. So it looks like I'll skip this update and see what comes later. I'm definitely not doing another hard reset. What a pain that is!

    Never got the push, but I connected my Radar to my Mac, fired up WP7 Connector, checked for updates, and BAM: There she was. Done and done. I is happy. Yay.

    There's three components to this update:
    • 7740
    • 7801
    • Firmware update

    It's a pretty solid update and Radar users should be thrilled. Took about 40 mins though to do it, so leave some time.

    Yay! I hooked up to my PC last night and updated. After updating to the 7740 update it said I had the latest software. I disconnected and reconnected my phone and it then loaded the rest so I now have 8107. I hope it fixes the proximity sensor issue like it promises. I hate having to press the power button to wake up the screen before I can end a long call. The keyboard issue is a bit annoying too. If these things are indeed fixed then the only thing left is to fix the network connectivity/wireless issues and I'll be an EXTREMELY happy Radar 4G owner and would recommend it without any caveats.

    Feels good to have a phone that actually gets updates. I lived with Android for over a year on two different phones, and never got any updates for either.

    That's the *huge* Achilles **** of Android. You just never know if you're going to get updates. The carriers and handset makers have no reason to do updates. They make no money from updating a phone...

    Urgggh! The proximity issue I'm having isn't fixed. :@ I still have to press the power button sometimes to wake up the screen before I can end a call. But I haven't seen the keyboard disappear yet.

    That's really, really strange. I use my phone a lot for calls and texts/IM, and while I'd seen the disappearing keyboard thing a few times, I've never fallen prey to the proximity sensor issue. My phone's always worked perfectly in that respect. Hmmm...

    Have you considered that it could be a phone-specific issue?

    That's strange nomoore that you have to manually wake up your screen during a phone call. Perhaps its more common than I think, but that is one thing that amazed me at first with my Radar.

    It took me a couple of calls to figure out it did it on purpose and perfectly, then I was just really happy as a WP owner. :) lol

    Yeah, me too. After the HTC update, my phone tries using 4G instead of WiFi, even when I have WiFi turned on and my phone's connected to a network. It's never done that before. WTF? :/

    Hm, wish I had read this before performing the HTC update that showed up AFTER the Windows 8107 update.
    Guess i'll report back if there are major issues. Hope not though, cause honestly, the phone was great before the updates - I was only experiencing the disappearing keyboard (sometimes).

    problem:

    after the 8107 update and then after the HTC update (which took forever btw), I now don't have the HTC apps area in the market and the market keeps telling me the attentive app needs to be updated but it errors out each time.

    i've tried to reset and restore my phone, but the same issue. Any fixes?

    Thanks!

    EDIT: I hard-reset and re-did everything manually (ugh) but it all works now. Not sure why the update seemed to have messed up my phone. No one else seems to have a problem.

    I did the update on my wife's Radar 4G and now she's complaining about problems with Internet Explorer on the phone. Websites sometimes don't load and the progress bar seems to stall out without about a half centimeter left. We have a great 4G signal here at home and it doesn't work even when Wi-Fi is enabled. I tried her phone and I am definitely seeing the problem, too. The problem seems to be intermittent but she said she never had the problem before the update. I'm really in the dog house on this one since she asked me not to do the update. She had problems previously when the Android 4.0 update to her Nexus S caused the battery life to be terrible. That's why I bought her this Radar 4G to replace the Nexus S after that fiasco. Everything was fine until the update and now she's pissed that I even installed it. I didn't think it would cause any problems since I've been running 8107 on my Dell Venue Pro for a while now. I'm thinking of using the Zune Software to restore to the backup from before the update, but if there is something I can do to resolve the problem while keeping the update I would prefer to try that first. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    That is unfortunate. You may have to start fresh like I did.
    Things have been much better since. I restoration didn't help me. But you should certainly try that first.
    Good luck!
