Update the software

How do I update the software on my device?


Software updates will be sent to your phone automatically over-the-air as they become available. But you always have the option to update over a USB connection using Motorola Device Manager (MDM) too. You can use either method to check for updates.

To check for available updates wirelessly/over-the-air:

  1. Touch Image
  2. Touch Settings
  3. Touch About phone
  4. Touch System updates

If an update is available, follow the instructions on your phone to download and install it. Once updated, your phone will restart to complete the installation. Updates will not affect your contacts, applications, or data.


To check for available updates using Motorola Device Manager:

Have your computer and USB cable handy and then follow these instructions.
