Verizon’s Motorola Droid Bionic isn’t the only smartphone that received a software update today. Apparently the Droid Incredible 2 has joined it. This is a minor update no matter how you look at it, but it’s still recommended that you apply it immediately, for it does bring a few fixes and enhancements here and there.
First of all, local video playback is supported when in airplane mode. The clock and alarm functionality was improved, “Disable While Roaming” now actually works when roaming in Canada, signal strength will be presented better, and push email can now be synced during off-peak hours. A few other things have made their way into the new software, most notably some security patches.
For that reason alone you should update. To check if the update has reached your device, go to Settings > System updates. You may just get lucky. The update is 29.35 MB in size. After applying this update, your phone should be running software version 5.10.605.9. Detailed update instructions are available in this PDF provided by Verizon.
And if you’re in the hunt for a new phone, the Droid Incredible 2 is available on Amazon (currently $0.01).
