To answer your question: Bug fixes, security patches, and software feature enhancements.


I'm happy Verizon is allowing us to update our phones. When I had a Verizon Windows phone, they rarely allowed patches to be pushed out. It was maddening to see other brands with newer OS versions.

My V20 stopped charging batteries since the Oreo update. Well, the phone is confused about what the battery level is. This is with trying multiple Fast Charge plugs, USB-C cables, and batteries. As well, it might be the charging jack on my phone. To replace it requires me to replace the $150 motherboard if it is shot.

I'm thinking that (for me) now is the prime time to upgrade my V20 to a V30 or a G7. Right now, VZW will give me $100 for this POS and then I can get wireless charging with a newer phone.

Note that the LG V40 was announced and will be released by LG to the public at the end of this month. Perhaps it will be available from VZW in Nov/Dec. It retails at $900 and has five (5) cameras - ridiculous. To the point, when VZW starts offering it, they may stop offering the $100 trade-in on the LG V20. Just guessing here.

Best wishes and good luck.

I hate it too! Now I can't unload pic on the FB app, sometimes you can't reply to a text. I keep getting the box where a lot of apps are not working. Then it closes the app.

Forced update and now many of my apps (facebook, whatsapp, message+) cannot upload photos from gallery. App links to gallery with no photos and then restarts app. The canned answers dont resolve.

PURPLEROSE_NC,

That's too much to work around. Let's take this one step at a time. Updates are all about compatibility. Please be sure that all apps are updated on your phone, then test the sames functions. What happens? Just in case: Check for Updates - My Verizon app | Verizon Wireless
