Hey Stratosphere owners – think Verizon forgot about you? That doesn't seem to be the case, as the company has just updated its i405 support docs with details of a new OTA update that should begin rolling out shortly. It's mostly a bug fixer, which looks to fine-tune the experience after the most recent OTA.


Post-update, you should find that voice calls sound better, emails should send more reliably when using Outlook, and some of the Verizon-specific apps (like My Verizon and VZtones) have been updated. This OTA also removes some of the bloat – IM, Blockbuster, Verizon Video, and Verizon Vcast should all be a thing of the past.

The update will likely begin rolling out to devices in the coming days.

    I just got the update.... Doesn't seem to have done much, the phone is still slow.

    I just got it, doesn't seem to have changed anything. I still have the wonderful bug when plugging it into the USB cable while connected to a PC that was introduced with the last "fix". Also, Blockbuster and Verizon Video are still on there and can't be removed.
