Official 2016 SMS hotfixes are available for the HTC Touch Diamond, Touch Pro

If you're the kind of person who just has to wait for official fixes to come out, well, fine. We understand. And official fixes are starting to trickle out for the 2016 SMS bug that we helped bring to light.

HTC has hotfixes for the Sprint Touch Diamond (opens in new tab) and Touch Pro (opens in new tab) that in all liklihood do the exact same thing our workaround does. But if you need the HTC stamp of approval, well, here you go.

Edit: The links to the CAB files are being squirrley, so just use the ones above.

Edit 2: Odd. Now the HTC pages are borked. Hang in there, guys.

  • I would assume that is fix is NOT for the TP 2 as well (or would it work?)
  • I would assume no. maybe the xda or ppcgeeks community will release one for them
  • Will this work for US Cellular Touch Pro 2?
  • unfortunately these are Sprint only for the time being.
    Maybe HTC will work with USC to get them released soon.
  • Unfortunately the Link for the Touch Pro is invalid on the HTC website itself
  • The fix is out for the Sprint Touch Pro 2 now. Thank me for the tip! lol
  • USC has the hotfix now
  • USC has the hotfix now,
