Verizon is set to roll out a new firmware update for its first-ever and only Windows Phone, the HTC Trophy. The new firmware update 2305.13.20110.605 will bring radio 1.53.00.12.01_23.17w.05.13U, and, according to the documents posted on Verizon support website, the update will bring “improved data connectivity in certain scenarios when Connection Setup application is installed”. It’s just a minor update and no other improvements, as well as other bug fixes haven’t been included with this update.
HTC Trophy users will receive a notification on their handsets asking them to upgrade their handsets’ software. As it is a Windows Phone, you won’t be able to automatically upgrade your handset.
