Well I should have done that a long time ago.

Earlier this year, after losing my old phone in an airport in Chicago, I ended up with a new Motorola RAZR V3c phone to go with my Verizon network. It looks cool, spiffy, and is very thin and light.

What it turned out to be, though, was very very slow. Pressing “Contacts” or “Menu” buttons involved waiting a solid three seconds before the corresponding submenus would arrive, and often I’d try to call someone only to have it sit at the “Connecting…” dialog forever, never making the damn call.

So, today, I finally took it in for a software update, hoping it would help. Wow, what a difference. Menus snap right up now and it works much better.

I should have done that a long time ago. Waiting in line at the Verizon centers isn’t the most pleasant thing to do, though. I can’t imagine how I have a wireless phone but I can’t get an update over the phone lines…grumble.

You can update it yourself next time with information found at themotoguide.com

If I need a cable, then I can’t do it, but thanks, I will check.

Looks like that’s not for the V3C, only the V3 for carriers like cingular and T-mobile.
