Droid Charge ED2 update

The Samsung Droid Charge has officially been on sale for less than 24 hours now, and a system update has already been released. Update ED2 is just a minor little thing, a 5.2-megabyte update that brings a couple of fixes to Samsung's Media Hub app. And the fixes are:

  • A software change was made to the Media Hub application to prevent downloading content over the 3G network. This application will only work in the 4G network or when using Wi-Fi to ensure quality and speed.
  • A pop up message was added to the Media Hub application to inform customers of the size of the download when in a 4G coverage area before downloading.

We're never really happy to see a software update that takes away functionality, but there you have it. So if you're dead set on using Media Hub over 3G, might wanna hold off on this one, folks.

Droid Charge gets ED2 system update, affects Media Hub only

"A pop up message was added to the Media Hub application to inform customers of the size of the download when in a 4G coverage area before downloading."

Geez I wonder why a customer would care how big the file is they are downloading? Seems as though a tier plan is coming.

Don't forget, some users don't use the unlimited data plan.
It's just a way of letting someone know how much data will be used. Hopefully this cuts down on the amount of phone calls to customer service claiming "Why am I being charged extra? I didn't know I was using this much data."

Thankfully the unlimited data plans are still available at VZW. And you should be safe if you have bought on contract. I don't think bionic customers will be so lucky.
