Sprint issues quick software upgrade for LG Optimus G


The LG Optimus G on Sprint will is getting a software upgrade, folks! Well, it won’t be the most exciting patch you’ll have ever applied but we can’t be mad at continuous support. The upgrade does change a couple of things, such as an upgraded visual voicemail experience and improvements to the phone’s battery life.

Bug fixes are aplenty, too. The list of fixes include the intermittent freezing issues, intermittent device resets during YouTube playback, removal of invalid info in Replay All email responses, the Mobile ID icon being changed to the Sprint ID icon, and a fix for the device’s power up issues after suffering an unsuccessful WiFi connection.

The upgrade will be going out in a staggered process, of course, but that’s par for the course by now. You won’t have to wait longer than a week and a half if your device doesn’t pull it down right away, though. If the notification hasn’t made its way to your device yet then you can try your hand at forcing it. Just head to the Settings > About Phone menu on your device to check for a software upgrade and you’ll be on your way.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
