Motorola DROID Bionic update coming soon, soak test under way

Motorola is getting set to release yet another update to their popular Motorola DROID Bionic 4G LTE smartphone. After countless delays before launch the device has been riddled with little problems and bugs, but at least they've been updating frequently. New details on another "soak test" starting have been confirmed and we should be hearing more soon.

Many are assuming this will be Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the popular Motorola device - and it very well could be. Motorola has mentioned multiple times in the past they are aiming to update to ICS quickly in the beginning months of 2012 so we are hopeful.

We saw some leaked information on an upcoming update back in late January that has yet to land on devices. It's also possible Verizon and Motorola may have made a few small changes and are getting ready to push that update yet again, but again nothing has been confirmed regarding what the update actually is. The last few updates for the Bionic has really improved the device in the few areas that were needed. Hopefully we'll be hearing more and we will be sure to update once anything comes in.

    I had huge data connectivity issues.  I finally called verizon tech support and I reluctantly reset my phone to factory (“hard reset”) and the issue went away.  The tech support person told me if the hard reset didn’t resolve my issue then I would get a new phone (not sure if they implied a new BIONIC).

    I downloaded the.901 update of the Web and put it on my phone…not single problem since with data…it was a great update, unfortunate that they didn’t push it out…if you’re still having problems I would highly recommend.

    I am having wifi issues after the 902 update. Initial connection after boot works but it drops randomly and them wont connect again until a reboot.
