Droid Bionic bug fixes due early in November
A Droid-Life reader contacted Verizon about some issues with his Droid Bionic smartphone and was rewarded for his efforts with a huge bug list and a timeline for fixing them. A fix for the 4G/3G connection issues is scheduled for November, and the high-pitch noise when using a headset, MMS bugs, Lapdock problems and others should be addressed at the same time. Verizon also cautions that users can't use non-Verizon or non-Motorola chargers and USB cables with the handset, and connecting eight devices at the same time won't work, unlike early promises.
The site put together a top 10 list of all the issues Verizon has admitted. This isn't the entire response, however. The maintenance release software fix is due for release early in November. Some other issues, like the slow launch of Google Talk video calls, Nitrodesk Touchdown compatibility, and the mobile hotspot's sole WPA2 security protocol support are not going to be fixed as Verizon doesn't see them as an issue.
While more than a month is a long time to wait, Droid Bionic owners can at least be reassured that a fix for many of their issues is coming.
