My original Droid actually worked with the Andriod 2.0 release, but 2.1 broke it and it hasn't worked since. I believe the Android codebase DID fix this, however Verizon has not made it a priority to include the fix in their releases. I now have a Droid 4 running 2.3.6 and it is still broken. Many of my coworkers have this same issue, but ONLY THE ONES ON VERIZON! Other carriers have apparently figured out how to port this fix into their releases, regardless of which Android phone.
Come on Verizon, fix this so we can stop wasting your 4G bandwidth!!!
