Verizon's LG G Pad 8.3 Gets A Small Update To Add LTE Roaming And Fix Power-On Issues

LG's G Pad 8.3 is, at least for the moment, the company's most high-end tablet available on Verizon's proprietary CDMA/LTE network. Today this carrier-specific model (VK810) gets a small software update to address one big user issue, one small carrier issue, and an outdated app. The latter is the Redbox streaming video app, formerly supported by Verizon, and now out of service. The latest update removes the RedBox app completely.

Verizon's Galaxy S4 Gets A Small OTA Update To Fix A Power Cycle Issue

If your Samsung Galaxy S4 on Verizon has been randomly rebooting, you might want to check for a system update. No, it's not getting Lollipop, but Verizon says that this update does fix "the intermittent power cycle issue." Translation: before this update the phone crashed. Now it will not crash. We hope. The only other change for software version KOT49H.I545VRUFNK1 (PDF link) is a VPN connectivity fix.

T-Mobile And Verizon (And Possibly Other Carriers) Are Using A New System App To Silently Install Bloatware Onto Phones

Update: We've heard from a source close to Digital Turbine that the software is not supposed to re-install bloat apps after they have been removed by the user. Once they're gone, they should stay gone, barring a factory reset of the phone (at which point they will reinstall, but again, only once). Digital Turbine was also not able to reproduce this behavior in its own testing on the T-Mobile Note 4, so it's not clear what went wrong for this particular user.
