Over the weekend there were various reports that Verizon’s new Motorola Milestone Droid Unlocked Incredible already received its first OTA update. At first no one really knew what the update accomplished and very few people even received the update. While many were hoping that this new update was going to fix all of the random reboots and radio bugs that early customers were experiencing it looks like this will not be the case. Rather this OTA update will merely fix a bug in Microsoft Exchange support. Also, you will only see the update if you have a corporate handset.
Here is the full statement released by Verizon explaining the issue that needed to be fixed with this update:
It was discovered that customers using Exchange for corporate email may find when an email is opened that has no recipients in the CC field, unintended recipients email addresses can sometimes be added into the CC field from previously received emails when the user selects the reply all function. The update that is being pushed to customers is to correct that issue. THIS ONLY IMPACTS EXCHANGE Users (corporate users).
While this initial OTA update was not the one many Droid Incredible customers were hoping it was it is an important update nonetheless. Sending a business email to a bevy of unintended recipients could be a potential catastrophe for some businesses. This issue would pretty much render the email function of the Unlocked Motorola Milestone Droid Incredible useless and I am sure that this feature draws a lot of customers for this particular mobile device. It is a good sign that Verizon is quickly taking steps to correct this issue. Hopefully they will do the same with the various issues other customers are having with their Incredibles.
