TmoNews reports the HTC HD7 and HTC Radar 4G are both getting an update tomorrow which will bring fixes to visual voice mail (the only US carrier which actually support it) and also bring performance improvements.  The update is likely the 7740 update which is slowly tricking out all around the world.

Of more interest is that the update will also bring WIFI tethering to the HTC HD7 and allow connection to hidden WIFI access points.  There has been a rumour recently that AT&T is planning not to bring these new features to the Samsung Focus and other first generation devices.

The full (somewhat obscured) list of improvements read as follows:

HD7 features and improvements:

  • Resolves errors with visual voicemail
  • Adds Wi-Fi sharing to the device
  • Allows connecting to hidden Wi-Fi networks
  • Radar 4G features and improvements:

Radar 4G features and improvements:

  • Resolves errors with visual voicemail
  • Can now download and customize ringtones
