Here’s the full breakdown of what’s new, straight from Verizon:

This update fixes these issues:

  • Customers couldn’t retrieve their Visual Voicemail messages and were getting an error 9999 in some areas.
  • Voicemail icon notification was not displaying when a new voicemail message was received.
  • Device stopped playing voicemail messages over Bluetooth® after the screen timed out.
  • Device occasionally went to blue screen during an inbound call.
  • Email font was too small.
  • Text was garbled on the call screen/dialer and the text was corrupted on the Recent Calls and contact list screens.

This update improves:

  • You can now choose Cellular or Wi-Fi as your preferred way of calling while roaming internationally.
  • Latest Android™ security patches.

As always, before downloading and installing the software update, you’ll want to connect via Wi-Fi or ensure you’ve got a strong connection to the Verizon network, and also make sure your device is plugged in or fully charged so there isn’t any issues during the update.
