PhoneNews.com has discovered new issues in the V07 software update for the LG Voyager (VX10000).
The update was released 48 hours ago to stores, and makes several improvements. Most of the updates focused on fixing Bluetooth issues, but also added the ability to manage home screen icons, mimicking Apple’s iPhone.
The issues PhoneNews.com has discovered are in regards to Bluetooth. First, Bluetooth Dial-Up Networking no longer functions. Devices are not pushed the DUN profile as a supported Bluetooth service. This makes using Bluetooth for phone-as-modem impossible. We have confirmed this on both Windows Vista SP1 and Mac OS X 10.5.1.
The update also addes erroneous support for functioning as a Bluetooth keyboard. While the device now pushes a Bluetooth HID profile, for using Voyager’s keyboard as in input device on other machines… there is no way to activate the feature on Voyager itself. Selecting OK when highlighting a Bluetooth HID device, causes the phone to power cycle instantly. The buggy implementation appears to be a placeholder for future versions, something that should not have been put into the production release.
PhoneNews.com urges users to avoid the V07 update if they intend to use their phone as a modem with Bluetooth.
