OTA Launch - Green means GO !

Blog Post created by theproductguy Employee on Jan 28, 2013

Busy week here at Republic headquarters, and some very cool things being released for you, our Republic customers.


The highly anticipated software update for the Single- and Dual-Band DEFT XT is finally here! Starting this evening at 6:00 p.m. ET, you’ll be able to download and install the software update (please go here for instructions).


We talked about all the components of this in my last post, and thanks to the efforts of several Republic groups, we’ve tested the process and software. The feedback we’ve received tells us there’s a significant improvement in call quality, calling, and texting performance on Wi-Fi and cell with this update.


The server update for the Voicemail PIN code removal will be done later this week, and is the first of a number of updates for Voicemail that we’re working on in the next few weeks.


We're also excited to release our very first Google Play app tomorrow called Wi-Fi+. This app contains some useful widgets that'll help you understand your Wi-Fi connection better and give you Wi-Fi usage numbers. This app will be available for download starting tomorrow, January 29. I’ll be posting another blog tomorrow to go over the details.


Please let us know how the update is going for you or if you experience any issues here as we’re constantly working on the service and striving to bring you the best service possible.


Thank you!


Talk to you tomorrow.
