While there are some devices out there that get a software update, and that’s the end of the story, the HTC ThunderBolt isn’t one of those devices. While it did get a Gingerbread update a few weeks back, the update actually dismantled plenty of software elements on the device, like Voicemail notifications. That’s a pretty big deal. But Verizon and HTC have finally begun to take the steps necessary to fix the situation.
The new changelog has been posted on the ThunderBolt’s official page over at Verizon’s side of the Internet, which means the update will be landing very soon. Some of the enhancements you should expect are: Bluetooth security patch all included; improved security features that reduce device vulnerability; and basic voicemail notification will now notify when a new voicemail has been received.
For those of you out there with a ThunderBolt that updated to Gingerbread through the first wave, it should be pretty exciting to know that you will soon have the most basic of notifications returned to your phone. There’s no exact word on when the update will begin rolling out, but it should be quite soon.
