DROID Charge EE4 Update on the Way – Fixes 4G LTE Connectivity, Other Bugs (Updated)

An update for the DROID Charge looks like it has been approved by Verizon and is just awaiting their pressing of the “Go” button.  The new 9.9MB EE4 build will introduce a slew of bug fixes, but whenever we see something mentioning better 4G LTE connectivity, it needs to be highlighted.  And I guess we always like it when call quality and GPS tracking have improved as well.  Overall the update should be considered pretty minor, since it’s not Gingerbread.  

Update:  Looks like the update could be rolling out now…

The changelog:

Call Features
+ Improved battery life when placing a voice call.
+ Easily return calls within the call log entry by pressing the phone icon.
+ Outgoing calls from the Visual Voice Mail application will be placed properly.
+ Pressing and holding the ‘1’ key will automatically route the user to the Voice Mail service (*86).
+ Audio has been adjusted to avoid ‘No Audio’ or ‘Screeching Sounds’.

Web Browsing and Data Access
+ Accurately detect and connect to the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE or 3G network.
+ Enhanced browser performance.

Email and Messaging
+ A new Email folder structure has been implemented. When a subfolder exists under a current Email folder, an arrow will appear to the right of the folder icon. When a user touches the arrow, the folder system will expand to show all subfolders available for selection.
+ When an Exchange password has been modified, the device will direct the user to the password screen to adjust the saved password accordingly.
+ Improvements in the Email and Calendar sync.

Additional Device Features
+ Restoration of Mobile Hotspot capability.
+ When in USB Mass Storage mode (UMS), the device will be recognized immediately when plugged into a PC.
+ Device recognizes ringtones purchased from the Verizon Wireless website.
+ Improvements in GPS performance.
