DROID Ultra, MAXX, Mini Soak Test Rolling Out, Brings VoLTE

Users of the DROID Ultra, Maxx, and Mini report an incoming soak test from Motorola, one which brings Advanced Calling 1.0, also known as VoLTE for Verizon’s network.

Usually, once the soak test rolls out and is successful, the firmware is sent to all owners of the aforementioned devices across the network. If VoLTE is a feature you have been looking to take advantage of on Verizon, then be on the lookout soon.  (more…)

Verizon Moto X Soak Test Invites Go Out, Should be Android 4.4.4 or 4.4.3

A new soak test of a software update for the Moto X on Verizon is about to begin, with invites going out to members of the Motorola Feedback Network moments ago.

Soak Test Coming for Verizon’s Moto X, Should be Android 4.4.2

Invites to a soak test for Verizon’s version of the Moto X went out moments ago, asking that participants check out an “early preview of a new software release.” With Verizon’s variant one of the last remaining without Android 4.4.2, I think it’s safe to assume what is in store. The update is considered pretty minor, but does bring the phone up to the most current version of Android.

We have already seen the update arrive on the T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular models. Before you get too negative about the timing of this one, keep in mind that Verizon’s was first to get 4.4, which was the bigger update of the two.  (more…)
