    Or should I say thanks to Verizon for that update.. I spent almost an entire precious Saturday on the phone with Verizon.. finding a store that carries a battery for my old Galaxy S3.

    Installed the update on Droid Turbo, then phone kept rebooting every few minutes. Eventually turned it off totally and went to sleep.. Woke up this morning, turned it on and it worked fine for about 15 minutes and started that again when i tried to load an app.. Got Verizon on phone, tried to fix it, wouldnt let.. tried to reset deleting all files and erasing cache.. got to pick your language screen and it would lock and then reboot and it did that over and over for two hours until battery died.

    Replacement will be here Monday.

    😞 I'm sorry to hear that the update bricked your device.

    I hope you get a replacement that already has the update installed and it runs properly.

    Suspect it's to keep the FCC at bay, from the lack of updates. Sorta kissing-up.

    They may not swap you for an S3, but they have to replace or reflash the the Droid. They broke it, they own it, in the US.

    That is really strange. The update worked just fine for me.

    Yeah, I'd say it wasn't the update that caused the problem. Most likely the phone's flash storage was failing and the update is the first thing that hit it.

    I'd get the warranty replacement, but one possible solution would have been to try flashing the firmware using Verizon's Software Update Assistant, or Software Repair Assistant (probably repair assistant). The only issue I've read with the SuA is that it will not work with USB 3 ports on Windows computers, but I've also seen reports of it fixing issues like yours.

    As I'm generally unimpressed with Verizon's call in support, I wouldn't be at all surprised if they never mentioned this solution to you.

    UPDATE: 23.21.49.quark_verizon.verizon.en.US vzw, call performance, security patch-screenshot_2016-05-15-12-51-41.jpgSo after getting the update I decided to Run Stagefright detector . And this is the result I got .
    The Turbo is still vulnerable .

    That's pretty disappointing, since the 2013 Droids *just got* a security patch that fixes stagefright.

    This must be solely for the call issue. Maybe there are other security patches. Fwiw, I've read of no Droids that were hit by stagefright, the sys partition is write protected anyway, and I'm sure if stagefright created a root-able exploit some people might actually be pretty pleased with that.

    Studies show that "bricked" phones are way more secure, I would say the update did it's job. What seems to be the problem?...

    On the bright side my Phone battery life has gotten a little better . Wifi took a small hit not bad though . Chrome seems a little faster . Phone seems a little louder on calls , actually had to turn the volume down .

    And why would a security update affect these phone functions?

    It wasn't just a security update - the change log also says it fixes call issues, so that explains why that's better. Updates always re-optimize apps, so that may explain (probably temporary) battery and performance improvements.

    I did the update last night before falling to 😴, I have been having call issues for a little over a month but, haven't had the time to call and complain or look for a resolution. I hope this fixes it.

    What does Advanced calling do?

    What does Advanced calling do?
    Well, the tl;dr version is that it allows simultaneous voice and data over LTE.

    Calls on Verizon have always been carried on a CDMA radio that doesn't have sufficient bandwidth to carry voice and data traffic at the same time (CDMA/EVDO is Verizon's 3G data protocol.) In past phones from 2011 - 2014, Verizon had multiple antennas, so the radio could switch between CDMA for call and LTE for data, but starting in 2014, almost every phone now only has a single antenna, so it can do CDMA for calls or LTE for data but not both at the same time. Until they added Advanced Calling, which allows VoLTE (Voice over LTE). AC supports better quality voice calls (Verizon calls it "HD calling") as well as video calls and up to 8 party conference calling. They are slowly adding WiFi calling to Advanced Calling. but not to any of the Droid phones yet.
