Verizon has begun to issue a new firmware update for the LG VX10000 Voyager. The update bumps firmware version from V03 to V05 on the device.
The Voyager was released within the past month as Verizon’s answer to Apple’s iPhone. The device has generally received acclaim for being one of Verizon’s most advanced devices, but still falling short of iPhone in terms of browser, email, and overall performance.
The new update makes several changes and numerous improvements, including to the web browser, Bluetooth, and battery life. Read more for a complete list. To update your phone, take it to the nearest Verizon Wireless store, but do call first to confirm availability of the update at your store.

Will there be future updated for the verizon voyager. If so when will the next one be if you no?
It’s not clear if there will be another Voyager update. That depends on a lot of factors and right now LG and Verizon aren’t commenting on it. That’s not to say there won’t be an update… we just don’t know right now.
For what its worth, this update does NOT allow the use of ESPN application on the external touch screen. Just like before, it says “Flip Open To Use”.
Will a brand new phone coming from verizon already have this update loaded, or will I need to go to the verizon store to take care of this when I get the phone?
http://www.voyager-lg.com is website you want to check out if you own a LG Voyager
Go direct to the source. Verizon.
I would find the product IDs etc from Verizon direct, then find one online. There was a shortage of LG Voyager Cell phones at retail stores. !From what I hear!!!
is there anywhere i can download the software necessary to transfer ringtomes from my computer to my voyager?
Yes you can get the software just use BitPim. Remeber to setup BitPim for vx10000
Is there an update where the phone locks after a certain amout of time. I have a nosy spouse who likes to go through my text messages.
my phone batter is dieing quick. i charge it over night till battery is compleatly charged. when i take my phone off the charger an hour later my phone is dieing. is my phone broken? do i need another one?
Hatevoyager, none of my business, but since you brought it up, why should you worry if your spouce sees your texts? If my man doesn’t let me see his phone, he’s hiding something. lol just a thought
what is the battery life of this phone? and is the touch sceren fluent or does it
Battery life depends on how much you use the phone for aps vs talking–only lasts 1 day if i txt a lot, but will last through the day. the touch screen is great I think. Never has frozen on me.
V12 IS DA LATEST FIRMWARE I GOT
