Over the weekend Rob reported on a rather mysterious update he received on his Droid Incredible. The guys over at Engadget Mobile did some recon work and got word back from Verizon on the exact reason for the fix. It turns out the update only affects those using Exchange for a corporate e-mail account. The gist of the bug has something to do with the CC field and using “Reply All” when responding to e-mails.
Here is what Verizon had to say:
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).
Unfortunately, that is about it. Gone are hopes of this correcting any issues with phone reboots or radio reception. The update should be completing its roll-out by May 6th.
