Verizon owners of the Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II are finally beginning to get the much needed software update for their phones that fixes a number of common bugs and improves the performance of this mid-range smartphone.
The new software, version JZO54K.I415VRBMF1, is currently rolling out over-the-air in Verizon’s latest update and brings many bug fixes including the internet browser resetting problem, the text message deletion problem when a word is corrected and the monotone blue screen that can only go away when the device is reset.
The new update also brings a number of new features and improvements which include:
- Caller Name ID will now be supported as an application you can download from the Google Play Store.
- An improved lock screen security.
- Improved lock screen functionality in emergency calling mode.
- The number of remaining attempts on the SIM pin entry screen has now been fixed.
- Improved contact list custom ringtones feature
A number of reliability and stability improvements have also been effected in the Mobile hotspot connectivity tool, the Data Usage Meter and the Kindle application, when downloaded as a separate application from Google Play Store.
If you are on Verizon and have the Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II phone, you should have already seen the notification or already installed the update. If you haven’t received any notifications, you can wait a little longer or check your settings and check the update manually. You can do this by navigating to ‘Settings’ then tap on ‘About Device’, ‘Software Updates’ then choose ‘Check New’. You can read more about the update and the update process on Verizon’s website.
