Verizon Updates Firmware, Hardware on VX8300 & A990

Verizon this week added firmware updates to two of their phones, as well as a new hardware revision to one of them.

The Samsung A990 has been updated to firmware version ZH07. This update improves menu speed, fixes voice-to-text on text messages, adds Call Announce, and improves the arrangement of Camera menus.

In addition, Verizon has released hardware revision 06.08. This fixes the external display being too dark on some batches of earlier units. If your external display appears too dark, take the phone to a Verizon Wireless store and ask to have it warranty replaced with the new hardware revision.

The LG VX8300 has also been updated to firmware version V03. It is not known what has been changed at this time.
