Verizon to address Droid issues in December
The recently launched Motorola Droid at Verizon is already due for an over-the-air update to fix a large number of issues, according to a lengthy document leaked from Verizon. The five pages that are said to have been sent to Verizon Tech Support representatives and reveal an update is due for December 11th. It will address a large number of issues, including adding nesting folders in Exchange Active Sync e-mail, adding a notification icon when sending an e-mail and fixing a lock-up when editing large invite lists.
Users currently also cannot accept a calendar appointment received over e-mail, which will also be addressed. When Google Mail is Active Synced, only picture attachments are recognized.
A delayed notification of a new Visual Voice Mail will also be addressed by the update, as will an incorrect date and/or time when sending videos over Bluetooth. In some markets, users also are not able to initiate three-way calling; the Add Call soft key also has no effect during some three-way calls. The counter for the number of characters in a message will also be fixed.
The inability to transfer contacts over Bluetooth will also be addressed, as will the delay before an incoming call or message after activation. Power cycling the Droid now eliminates the problem, but the update will totally resolve the issue.
Finally, an intermittent problem with the camera's ability to automatically focus will also be resolved.
Some of these issues will purportedly be resolved in a second update, on January 22nd, as there are two dates listed for the Droid's fixes. [via Phandroid]
