Verizon has officially announced the 5-month-old HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE is now receiving a new software update. Is it important enough that you should care? For many users, yes it is. The 154MB update file is listed as build 2.17.605.2 and includes several new features and improvements that could make it worthwhile for many Verizon users.
Probably the most exciting change arriving in this update is the addition of global roaming. More than 220 countries will be compatible with this feature. While global roaming might not matter to everyone, this is a major feature that could be quite useful for those that regularly travel abroad.
The other major change is the addition of the Isis Mobile Wallet payment system. This finally means we will have a Verizon-approved mobile payment system for the Incredible 4G LTE that will work with any Isis Ready merchant. Other changes in the Droid Incredible 4G LTE update include improved LTE and Wi-Fi connection performance, a minor change to Visual Voice Mail, better support for Tango and enhanced customer support thanks to Verizon’s Remote Diagnostics tool.
At the moment, the update has yet to hit the airwaves, though odds are it could arrive any time between now and the next few days.
