Sprint has been taking advantage of the past few weeks to release new software updates for some of their handsets affected by Carrier IQ, removing the offending app, and it seems that the mobile carrier’s flagship Android device at the moment, the Epic Touch 4G, is also on the receiving end for an update that ensures Carrier IQ will no longer bug you. Just in case the Epic Touch 4G looks familiar to you, this is because it is a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II. This security update will also include updated modems in addition to a fix for an issue that involves multiple calendar alerts. Apart from that, the Commercial Mobile Alert System is also supported, letting Sprint push out critical public safety updates to customers just in case there is an emergency. For owners of the Epic 4G Touch that has yet to receive the update, patience is the keyword here, and Sprint claims that the update should hit Over The Air (OTA) status within 10 days.
