We already posted this earlier in the day but this time with a bit more information thanks to a T-Mobile representative. The new upgrade does contain changes to the Settings menu and also resolves the following bugs:
* Random device resets during phone calls have been fixed.
* Improper 850mhz scanning which lead to messages like “no network” or “searching” for an extended period of time.
