HTC Rezound update rolling out with global roaming support, data connectivity improvementsAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
We haven't heard much from the HTC Rezound ever since the DROID DNA strolled onto Verizon's shelves, but today the Rezound has been thrust back into the spotlight thanks to the arrival of a pretty beefy update. The new update is version the 4.05.605.14 710RD and, while it's not quite the same as a bump to Jelly Bean, the bundle of software does include some pretty nice improvements.
Probably the biggest inclusion here is global roaming support, which will enable the Rezound to access voice and data service in over 205 countries around the globe. There are some goodies inside for the non-globetrotters, too, such as improved device stability and data connectivity. Here's the changelog for the 207.1MB update:

If you're rocking a Rezound and haven't yet gotten an update notification, you can try to check for it manually be heading into Settings > Software update > Check new.
