Update Will Add Speakerphone To Chocolate
Sep 27, 2006, 2:08 PM by (staff)
Verizon will offer an update to enable speakerphone on the Chocolate. The upgrade will be part of a free software update that owners will be able to get by going into any Verizon store starting next week. Even though the Chocolate offers a number of advanced features, it did not launch with speakerphone capabilities, despite the fact that it is common on even the most basic handsets lately. Verizon does not yet offer over the air (OTA) updates, which allows users to patch oversights and bugs by downloading new software to the phone directly from the network. Sprint offers this capability on most their newer phones.

How come I already have a speaker phone option on my Chocolate?
You can only operate it during a call... by presssing the music button
has sprint offered a OTA yet?
Think about it from the carriers standpoint: why fix phones for free when you can rope them in for two more years, and get them to purchase a new phone. The only way they will use this is in situations like this, where vzw is obviously saying to themselves "Doh!"
i know all phones are released with some amount of 'acceptable' bugs, i just see this as a way for the carriers to release less finished phones. Rush the phone to get it on store shelves before the holiday shopping season, and hope they have a OTA that solves some known issue before too...
You can add it yourself now, why wait
