Motorola’s issued the call to arms for those with Photon 4G units on Sprint. They are gearing up to release a new update soon and need testers to help them determine whether or not things are good to go for the vast majority of those who have the device.

If you have the device and are signed up to receive test alerts be sure to check your inbox. [Motorola via Android Central]
