If you’ve been having any trouble using the global calling features boasted by your DROID 2 Global, things are about to get a lot easier. According to a document (originally created on December 7th) procured by DroidLife, the update for the D2G being sent out now contains several global calling bug fixes along with a couple other various improvements:
+ Device now prepends 011 to Country Code to send SMS messages.
+ Device no longer indicates “No Service” after powering up.
+ Device no longer resets when changing from Global Mode to GSM/UMTS communication.
+ Device now refreshes the user interface display when switching from GSM/UMTS to Global Mode.
+ Eliminated the blank screen when dialing the call forwarding string *71.
+ Improved audio during voice calls.
+ Reduced user interface lock-ups.
If you haven’t already received the 15.6MB update, you can head to Settings > About phone > System updates, and you should be able to pull it from there. Should you land the update, be sure to let us know how it goes. One last thing worth mentioning, the update will kill your root. But apparently, rerooting is not a problem.
