Punkt Releases their First MP02 Software update


If you are a Punkt MP02 user you will be happy to know that you can now download your first software update for the device.  This update should help get rid of some of the bugs that users have been reporting since the device launch.  One good thing about the update is that Punkt outlines the fixes with a great changelog. Makes me wish BlackBerry would take note.


Change Log

Software Release v01.02.0051


  • APN network settings: it is now possible to edit “authentication type”.
  • Text messaging: the New message contact in New Message Shortcut now correctly displays the message recipient’s name
  • Text messaging: it is now possible to use the ‘use content’ option to save the contact information of a text message sender to Contacts.
  • UI language: a significant amount of UI language corrections have been made in this software release – others are still being worked on.
  • Manual setting of date/time in German has been fixed.
  • The Note reminder notification that remained on even when the phone was in standby has been fixed.
  • Various bugs related to random speed and call dialling.

Partial fixes:

  • Battery life: there has been a moderate improvement in battery life issues. This is a priority issue for all future software updates.
  • Text messaging: there is a stability increase in the message feature crash occurring in random text input.
  • In Italian, the tethering on/off switch in the rapid-access Status menu (reached by pressing the Up arrow) has been fixed for connection via Wi-Fi, but not yet for USB and Bluetooth tethering. As a workaround the tethering on/off switch in the – Connectivity menu can be used for all tethering connection options (reached by pressing the Punkt button, and then Settings).
  • UI text change in Alarm settings for the majority of supported languages.
  • UI language corrections in most mis‑spelt country names.
  • Improvements in the Call History issue which was calling the last person listed instead of the selected contact.

Known issues not fixed in this update:

We are working towards fixing these with the next MP02 software update.

  • Silent mode not staying on

  • Notification screen not displaying received notifications

  • Tethering password auto-resetting

  • Vibration function not working

  • User-defined dictionary and predictive text issues

To get the update, you will need to have your MP02 connected to a Wi-Fi network and you will want to make sure your data is backed up before proceeding. If you need help backing up your information, you can click here for assistance from Punkt!
