A software update for the HTC Rezound is coming soon, according to Verizon's support page for the device. Hoping it's the update Rezound owners have been waiting for - you know, the one to ICS? Sorry to burst your bubble, but there's nothing to it but minor bugfixes and changes. But hey, you can't complain about them fixing things in the interim, can you? The update bumps things up to version number 2.01.605.11 and baseband

    Device Features
    +  Updated signal strength meter to 5 bar Received
    Signal Strength Indication (RSSI).
    +  Screen Timeout issues while connected to Wi-Fi have been resolved.
    +  Resolved issue with Mobile Hotspot data stalling while multiple users are
    +  Improved audio quality during voice call.
    +  Reduced forced closures related to the People application.
    +  Improved device stability reduces continuous resets.
    Email, Messaging and Data
    + Resolved issue with Task Manager stopping Mail background service

There's no word on when the update will roll out, but with the support page already updated to "Coming Soon!" it shouldn't be long.

    Where is my Ice Cream Sandwich HTC?

    I've had my rezound since the day it was available and i havn't had ANY of the issues listed. I hope the update doesn't bring any problems to my phone like some 'updates' do to other phones.

    Same here, the only issue I've had is the "Service Started" message but it's just background crap.

    My Rezound is working like a well-oiled machine. I'm wary of so-called "improvements." I've had the unsolicited "beta tester" experience before.

    My son and I have received ours today. He's installed his... His words were "it's just more bloatware". Who knows. I'm waiting to install it until there's more feedback.

    Mine had the contentious cycle issues. I had to factory reset 4 times within 2 months. Hopefully this issue has been resolved.

    The rezound software update improved the voice quality of phone calls dramatically, updated/added apps, and shows 5-bar signal strength. Why are folks griping about the ICS update? From what I've witnessed of the initial ICS, it's a buggy clusterf*ck. My rezound functions perfectly with Gingerbread/Sense 3.5. Why wreck a great device with a buggy OS?
