Motorola_Logo_From_DROID_RAZR_MAXX_HD_TA

Remember the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX’s soak test that went out on Monday? We now have the details on what it brings. Unfortunately, not much. To be exact, it adds just two enhancements. The first is a data bug that was occuring while roaming in Canada on Telus GSM and UMTS networks. And the other was yet another data bug that occurred when connected to an extended network in places like Alaska. A warning would appear; however, that has now been fixed. The update is named 98.72.165.XT912.Verizon.en.US in case you were wondering. Nothing else to see here, folks.
