Verizon may have been last out of the gate with the HTC One, but at least it's getting some update love. The One is getting its first OTA update on Big Red with a few notable improvements. You can start mashing the update button, if you like.

The new firmware, with version number 1.10.605.10, should make lock-ups less common while using the device. It's always a nice thing when your device doesn't freeze, right? There is also a new internet accessibility mode for the visually impaired. Verizon's chosen NFC payment platform ISIS Mobile Wallet is getting an update in this software as well, but Verizon isn't saying what that changes. Unless the update can make retailers accept it, it probably won't matter to you.

The update should arrive on all devices in the coming days. The manual update option may or may not work, but I'm betting on the latter.

    Guess this means it'll be a while before Big Red HTC Ones see Android 4.3.

      Put it this way. Every US version (minus US Cellular) has gotten the Camera Software update for the Moto X. Verizon Support Docs haven't even been released for this update yet.

      Can't wait to buy out my contract...

        My brother in law hasn't renewed his contract with big red cause he's mad at the slow down of lte in our area. He was getting around 20mbps + on regular now he barely hits 8mbps. Only reason he's staying is unlimited data and at his house he gets faster lte speeds cause there's no one around for blocks so he has a tower all to himself.

      The US HTC President says info is coming about the update for all carriers this week and that they should be here "slightly after" the end of September, so I don' think that's necessarily true.

        Yes and Verizon Wireless always follows what the manufacturer's promise - yeah right, gotcha!

    I hate VZW's render of the HTC One, it makes the back look SO round and gaudy.

    Really? Isis update? How about add google wallet capability. I just used it this morning to buy me some redbull. And I use it all the time. I hope google starts pushing wallet more.

    Hmmm, never had a freeze up yet, so not sure what its fixing, obviously certain people must be having an issue somewhere, but mines been just fine, fantastic phone so far :)

    • Russell Guy

      I'm definitely noticing some connection issues after the update and decreased battery life. Markedly decreased. From 100% to 20% in under 6 hours of moderate use on wifi.
