  • Alarm Improvements Resolves issues with alarm functionality.
  • Music Player Functionality
  • Eliminates accidental starting of music.
  • Audio Quality Enhancements Eliminates instances of choppy audio experienced by some users.
  • PIN Lock Improvements Allows users more flexibility in setting the PIN Lock timer when using Exchange email.
  • Proximity Sensor Enhancement
  • Provides more accurate proximity sensing during phone calls.
  • Flight Mode Enhancement
  • Ensures phone service is restored after leaving airplane mode.
  • “My Location” Improvements
  • Resolves the issue of Google Maps failing to find “My Location” when “Use Wireless Network” is enabled without using GPS.

Update: This MR2.5 update was momentarily pulled and is apparently only for Greece users…

Motorola Europe – Ok, so here’s the deal: apologies for the earlier
update, some eager people jumped the gun. We confirm FOTA update
for Greece is available now for the latest Milestone software
enhancements and MSU will follow in the future. Poland, Netherlands
& other European countries will also roll out in the future and
we will update when these are ready. Update & install details available on
the Discussion tab.
