Motorola Droid Bionic

Just a quick heads up that the .905 update for the Motorola Droid Bionic is now pushing out in earnest, according to the fine Bionic-owning fellers in our forums. Here's what you can expect in this update:

  • Recalibrated volume of the call connect and disconnect tones to be more comfortable for Bluetooth users.
  • Improved Visual Voice Mail to ensure delivery of a notification to the Status bar.
  • Reduced data stalls to improve 4G LTE data connectivity.

You should be able to pull it down through the system menu if you haven't already.

The Droid Bionic is still scheduled to receive its Ice Cream Sandwich update in the third quarter of 2012.

I thought this update pushed last week.

Nope, not for everyone, looks like it was for soak testers. Got it last night @ 10pm SoCal

How did this update effect the LTE connection. The Bionic might have been slow at first for the much needed updates but as of late there has been a few. I have seen on the forums that many of the Bionic Owners are very happy with their phones as of late. I'm using the HTC Rezound, same size as the Bionic. Like that size phone, I think that is just the right size.

We have two Bionics in our house and we love them. They've been fast and rock solid. We've had no connectivity problems on 902 and I don't expect to have any on 905.

Upgraded, went to town (going through areas with no coverage at all), phone showed 4G and phone active with plenty of signal. Tried to make a call, while reporting trying to connect the (status bar) phone signal went to zero, no connection. Stopped call, (status bar) phone signal went back to 4 bars. Tried call, went to zero bars.

This is starting to look like the infamously bad Samsung Moment. I wonder if I have some app causing problems.. but then again, the OS should be in charge of the radio, shouldn't it? I shut down my signal reporting app some time ago. Looks like 905 did not help and may have made at least some things worse. Only way to fix was to reboot. Will keep trying understand why the phone thinks it is on the network when it actually isn't, but doubt I will figure it out.
