Motorola is one of the manufacturers known for delaying updates and frustrating its customers with that, but one is for sure – it has always been trying to be as helpful as possible for those who want to know when their device will be upgraded. However, till soon the page of the company’s website that was responsible for this was quite perplexing and you could get lost in the great number of models and versions listed. It’s not this way anymore.
Recently Motoroa created a support page – Home for Upgrades – where the customers would be able to navigate easily to the information they need. The long list of devices is sorted and there are guides that help you reach your device. The whole page is in English and the first thing you have to do when you visit it is indicate which your carrier is – Verizon, US Cellular, T-Mobile, Sprint, Ntelos, C-Spire, AT&T or other carrier. Then you select your device from a grid with names and pictures and hold your breath as you will get some news bellow – good or bad, depending on your luck.
Those devices that won’t get more new updates and are with an old version of Android (for example DROID 3, which works under Gingerbread) may provide you with the option Trade-in. This means that you may return your old Motorola and get a $100 rebate which you can use to purchase a new smartphone or a tablet (probably with Jelly Bean on it). So don’t waste time but get on the website and try your luck – it’s worth the effort!
