In response to user complaints regarding certain aspects of the LG Voyager's functionality, LG and Verizon have issued a firmware update that promises to fix many of the problems. Among the improvements are: prolonged battery life, better support for Bluetooth functions, improved HTML and mobile web browsing and fixes to glitches such as the auto lock, and the V CAST Music store. The update is not available over the air. Customers need to go to a Verizon store in order to have the devices reflashed. Verizon recommends calling ahead to see if your local store has the update before going there.

(I'm sorry, I guess this is more of a rant than a thread) but if it is possible to prolong a battery that to me is B.S. in that Verizon only waits for enough complaints to make a battery last as long as it SHOULD.
it changes the power consumption of some programs and applications.

THe perfect example is the motorola Q. It had probably the worst battery life of any phone I've ever had. After a software update (not the first) it literally quadrupled my batter...
Well. How do you know how long a battery should last for? Especially for a powerhouse phone like that? You have a Ph.D. in electrical engineering? Battery Physics (i dunno what you would call it)? that was my rant.

So I guess when the engineer...
Actually, the device and application software plays a huge role in how long the battery lasts on any device. You may or may not know that depending on available signal strength devices will turn up power to the radio to maintain a stable network conne...
It's like updating the BIOS in a computer, because that's bascially what a cell phone is. I've been a long time Verizon member, and I can tell you i'm very surprised that Verizon even has the Voyager

Maybe the low supply isn't so bad

As an indirect retailer, I was pretty bummed that we couldn't get our hands on them before Christmas. But maybe by the time we can get them, the bugs will be worked out.
Doubt it...
