Beta test OTA upgrade for the Motorola ATRIX 4G rumored to have been out for a week
The 4.1.83 software upgrade for the Motorola ATRIX 4G is rumored to have been out for a week. The software is said to have hit the ATRIX 4G as a beta OTA upgrade.

In the meantime, owners of the handset can expect the upgrade to increase the speed at which data travels on the network. The upgrade also prevents "interruptions" to data connections. While some ATRIX 4G users have complained about the screen freezing, the download should help prevent that from occurring. Motorola ATRIX 4G owners will now be able to sign into YouTube and MOTOBLUR with the same password and when email comes, the handset will now send a notification.

Once installed, the software upgrade will also bring improvements to Skype, Wi-Fi, the display and more. For a complete list of what the upgrade will bring to the phone, check out the changelist at the sourcelink. Motorola suggests having the phone on Wi-Fi while upgrading to save data charges, and recommends that your battery is at least at 50% charged.

If any Motorola ATRIX 4G owners received the upgrade, let us know by dropping a comment in the box below.

The update is there for the insprire as well. AT&T wanted them rolled out together. You should get an SMS from AT&T letting you know its ready for your phone. They are rolling them out in order by the IMEI on the phones. If you dont get the SMS, then just periodically check in your setttings under about phone then system updates. Just keep doing it through out the day and you should get connected and be able to download it. I am still waiting on mine as well for the Atrix. My friend is waiting for his Inspire too. So we are both constantly checking. Its a hassle, but its worth it I think anyways.
