    Samsung is certainly staying on top of updates for the Droid Charge. Today Verizon has announced a new software update (EE4) that should be heading your way to fix a few bugs and provide some additional features.

    Call Features:
    + Improved battery life when placing a voice call.
    + Easily return calls within the call log entry by pressing the phone icon.
    + Outgoing calls from the Visual Voice Mail application will be placed properly.
    + Pressing and holding the ‘1’ key will automatically route the user to the Voice Mail service (*86).
    + Audio has been adjusted to avoid ‘No Audio’ or ‘Screeching Sounds’.

    Web browsing and Data access
    + Accurately detect and connect to the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE or 3G network.
    + Enhanced browser performance.

    Email and Messaging
    + A new Email folder structure has been implemented. When a subfolder exists under a current Email folder, an arrow will appear to the right of the folder icon. When a user touches the arrow, the folder system will expand to show all subfolders available for selection.
    + When an Exchange password has been modified, the device will direct the user
    to the password screen to adjust the saved password accordingly.
    + Improvements in the Email and Calendar sync.

    Additional Device Features
    + Restoration of Mobile Hotspot capability.
    + When in USB Mass Storage mode (UMS), the device will be recognized
    immediately when plugged into a PC.
    + Device recognizes ringtones purchased from the Verizon Wireless website.
    + Improvements in GPS performance
