Gingerbread update for Verizon's LG Revolution is being pushed out as we speak
Sure it might have been the least favorable of the initial three 4G LTE smartphone offerings from Verizon Wireless, but in any event, the LG Revolution is finally packing its Froyo bags and moving right up to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Naturally, the wait was a lengthy one for handset owners, but it’s nonetheless ever so sweet for them.

Bringing up its software version to VS910ZV7, the update brings forth the entire usual suspect of features commonly associated with the sweet tasting snack. Beyond that, it packs along a few things that enhance both the email and messaging experience. And of course, it’s packing some other enhancements and bug fixes to fine tune the overall experience for users. Specifically, they include the following:

Email & Messaging
  • Email folders will now display in the correct order.
  • The maximum attachment size is now set correctly, even when the
  • Exchange service is configured with unlimited size attachments.
  • Messages can now be stored on the SIM card. View these messages through the Settings menu, “Manage SIM card messages.”
  • Correctly set Out of Office without having to set a start or end time.
  • The popup message asking to delete accounts when changing the SIM card now displays correctly.

Device Features
  • The cursor has been reshaped for easier text editing.
  • List menu force close issue has been resolved.
  • Issues have been fixed involving proper connectivity through the HDMI cable.
  • Data now works correctly when toggling in Airplane mode.

If you haven’t seen that long awaited notification on your device, you can simply initiate the manual process yourself under the Software Update section in the Android Settings menu.Once that's all taken care of, you can finally sing the joys of being in good company thanks to Gingerbread.

Thanks Albert!

This is sickening. Carriers/manufacturers delay important updates for almost a year now. Jesus, the phone has been around since early 2011 and Gingerbread since late last year. These phones should've SHIPPED with Gingerbread.

Even now its funny watching people buying GB phones with promises of ICS "in the future". Good luck with that. I've given up on the Android ghetto because of BS like this

I got mine a few days ago too. But while I don't notice many differences in use or look, i do notice that everytime i use the back key on the internet it just kicks me out. And it lags more, where before it worked fine :\
I guess I'll be needing a reset and then download the update...
But beyond that the only visible differences I noticed are mostly cosmetic, as in, things that didn't really need to made different but have been changed anyways

c. hack...then I guess that's why RIM, IOS and WP7 are still around. take your pick...why even read an article if it doesn't even pertain to your needs/wants...Clearly at the top GB update on Revolution...did not say ios with siri, RIM's Blackberry world- wide outage or WP7 and Nokia's futuristic phones.
