The Casio G’zOne Commando, Verizon’s rugged phone with a very bizarre name, seems to receiving another software upgrade. The changes include improved stability to decrease power cycles during PTT calls, the ability to automatically shut off the speakerphone following a PTT call, the removal of “Mobile IM,” an bug fixing update to the Desktop Cradle app, and more.
