Voyager gets new firmware
The LG Voyager offered by Verizon has finally received the previously rumored visual voicemail application as part of a new firmware upgrade, according to today's report. Owners of a Voyager can currently bring their phone in to a Verizon dealer for a free firmware upgrade. At the same time, Verizon will offer the Voyager in a new Titanium color, in addition to the originally available black.
The VX10KV09 firmware update brings with it the Visual Voice Mail support, which costs about $3 per month, City ID, which costs $2 monthly and shows what city and state a call is coming from, and a long list of fixes to bugs that resulted in the Voyager locking up or performing other unexpected and unwanted operations.
Verizon is offering the new Voyager for $99 after rebate and with a new, two-year activation.
