ENHANCEMENTS

This software update is for all DROID TURBO users. After installing the software update you will notice enhancements and changes that include:

Voice over LTE (VoLTE) Enables Verizon’s Advanced Calling 1.0 service on 4G LTE networks with XLTE.  This includes High Definition (HD) Voice to improve call quality, and video-calling between two Advanced Calling subscribers.  You can also upgrade from an active voice call to a video call when both parties have the service enabled.
Simultaneous Voice & Data Enables an active cellular data connection during a voice call so that you can talk and use your data connection (browse the web, etc.) at the same time.
Bluetooth Fixes an issue that could cause the volume setting on a Bluetooth speaker to increase when a phone call interrupts a streaming audio session.
VZ Navigator Fixes an issue that could cause the audio volume of navigation instructions to be low.
Visual Voice Mail Closes a potential security vulnerability.  Fixes an issue that prevented audio from playing to a Bluetooth car kit as well as one that could lead to a voicemail indicator when no messages remain on the server.
SoftCard Fixes issues with activation and a connection issue that could occur when Advanced Calling is enabled.
Network Experience Fixes an issue that could prevent proper switching from 3G to 4G LTE.  Fixes issues that could trigger a dropped call, prevent a call from going through, show that no service is available or show that a SIM card is not inserted.
Charging Fixes an issue where it could appear that the device was not charging while connected to a charger.
Stability Fixes issues that could cause various applications to crash.  Updated firmware fixes scenarios in which the display goes blank, the touch screen could be non-responsive, it appears that the phone is unresponsive or frozen, and an instance that could force a reboot.
