LG VX8500 owners looking for where the speakerphone is on the device, can finally look no farther. Verizon has issued firmware V04 for the Chocolate phone, which adds speakerphone functionality to the device.
Update: While available in many stores, the update is not yet available in all markets. Call your local Verizon Wireless store to confirm availability before taking the phone in for update.
Update 2: Users on HowardForums have posted the firmware and flash files for updating the phone yourself. We caution users to avoid this practice when possible, as it may not be supported under the phone’s warranty.
