For all the time Motorola and Verizon took to polish their Droid Bionic, the phone did not launch without its faults. From its first days it has had its fair share of bugs and glitches, from a high-pitch squeal when using wired headphones to 4G/3G data connectivity issues. One customer experiencing problems with the Bionic contacted Verizon support about the issue. In return a full bug list was provided, detailing every known issue with the handset. While a majority of reported issues either don’t affect all users or have very minimal impact on the overall use of the Bionic, the number of bugs is still rather alarming. Also revealed is the fact that the phone does not support eight devices in hotspot mode as advertised.

Many of these known issues are planned to be addressed in an in-the-works update. While we don’t like to put too much stock in the word of lower level customer service reps, word accompanying the bug list is that we can expect a software refresh in November. Though the timing lines up with the release of Ice Cream Sandwich, we suspect the Bionic won’t receive its serving of the frozen dessert until a much later update. For a more detailed look at the bug list, head to the source link below.
