Motorola Cliq update

OK, you hungry Motorola Cliq users who are dying for another update: One's coming your way tonight, at least for 1,000 lucky users. But before you call a baby sitter and abandon the family, know this: It doesn't appear to be a full-on Android version update, though it will bring:

  • Improved battery life
  • Improved software performance and stability
  • Improved home screen
  • Improved widget response
  • Decrease in ‘Force Close’ error messages
  • New Manage SIM card application
  • Added support of .WMA and .WAV media files
  • Removes the imeem mobile application

To get in on it tonight (for everybody else, this maintenance release is coming later this week), you'll need to manually check for an update starting at 6 p.m. PDT (9 p.m. EDT), and follow this thread in T-Mobile's forums. Good luck! [via TMoNews]

Good news. It's nice to see the carrier (pay close attention VZW and Sprint, I've all but written off AT&T in the Android dept) throw out patches to fix their issues rather than sit idle and wait for Google to do it.

One more tower T-Mobile. Extend your network another 3 miles and you have a new customer.

they keep saying it fixes but i haven't noticed much fixin

This honestly sounds a lot like the last update we got back in February or March or whenever it was. The verbage is near identical. But in any case, any new developments and continued support and product focus are good words of encouragement any day.

I downloaded it last night and was testing it all night. My cliq is running smoother then ever and it doesn't force close while texting any more. I would like to add that the update came in two parts idk if tmo will do this for the real update


This is not an update. It's more like a bug fix. When the Android version changes, you can call it an update.

I'm glad they're fixing bugs though I rarely get force closes anyways.
