    I got MMS and Theathering working using the old carrier file. I notice that the battery drain is quick, after 1 call about 10%. My wifes phone was not updated and her battery is fine. Is it possible that the carrier file is causing the drain?

    i had this same experience. My battery tanked after I installed the old carrier file. I'll hold off for an official solution.

    Did you revert back to the delivered file? If so has it gotten better?

    How can you revert back to the original file? Is it online somewhere?

    Do a complete restore and set up as a new phone

    i went ahead and did a full restore and started with a blank slate. I didn't even restore from a backup. Not sure if that was necessary but that worked.

    This include the online hack that adds a network profile for tethering? I actually removed mine and I still get the tethering option. Don't know about battery life though.
