Bell’s Motorola Atrix 4G has received a minor software update that is said to improve the device’s performance, among other things. The update is now rolling out to Bell customers who own Atrix smartphones. After you’ve updated, your phone should run software version 37.23.
Data upload speeds have been improved, improvements have also been made to both data and voice connections so they get interrupted less, the screen is now prevented from freezing, if you use Skype you’ll find that the persons you’re talking to will now hear you better, Yahoo email can now be sent over a Wi-Fi connection (!), the International Roaming message now only appears when you move to a new network, the Happening social networking widget has been improved too, as has been calling in general, SMTP servers that do not require authentication are now supported, and Exchange performance is better.
As with all over-the-air updates, your phone will notify you that there’s an update available, and you will not need to connect it to a computer in order to perform the update. If your phone hasn’t yet notified you, and you want to manually check for the update, go to Settings > About phone > System updates and select Download.
After the software is downloaded, select Install. Your phone will now reboot and install the software. Ensure that the battery is at least half full before attempting this.
