DROID Incredible 4G to Receive First Update – Includes Global Roaming, Support for Isis, and More

Verizon has approved the first update for the DROID Incredible 4G LTE as build 2.17.605.2. The update will introduce a couple of major items – global roaming across 220 countries and support for Isis Mobile Wallet. It will also include Verizon’s Remote Diagnostics tool, improved LTE and WiFi connectivity, and support for Tango. The big players, again, are the global goodness and Isis readiness. 

With Isis set to kick off in its first test markets any day, we had actually heard that this device was going to take the lead. We’ll have more details on this later. Also, HTC and the Incredible line have been known as global roaming devices, so we’ll happily welcome in its new global capabilities.

Once these support docs go live, we tend to see the update in a matter of days. Let us know if you see it!

The update is 154MB in size.

    Interesting – the Inc 4G has had better 4G connectivity for me than any other device to date, especially better than the M, and slightly better than the Maxx. Hope they don’t screw it up… lol

    Isis support?! o.0

    I’ve been following Isis, as much as one can “follow” a race for paint to dry. I’m sort of surprised Verizon’s already to the point of supporting it given the relatively vague timeline Isis has for deployment.

    It’s a bit interesting to me that Verizon has to “add” support to devices for Isis, but maybe something related to NFC in the Incredible 4G was set dormant by Verizon. It’s going to chap my ass if Verizon has to decide to make the Galaxy Nexus or Note II “compatible” for Isis- but I’m fully sure they’ll be heavy-handed.

    Ideally, if my phone has NFC on Verizon’s network, I should be able to download and install Isis.

      The worst part is not getting any updates at all (not since the Facebook fail).

    Has HTC forgotten about the Inc2 (and TBolt) and their ICS upgrade?
