    Hi chegarcia, I too received that message, though I think it said by Aug 11.

    I think its the ZVE baseband update. My phone tried to get that several weeks ago but with custom rom and recovery it failed to install. I just updated using lg updater.

    You are correct its the zve . When i spoke to them they told me that the corporate store can do this update . But its 3ways . One ota over the air . From the corporate store and you can do this from your home with the lg tool . Metro is telling lies and stories about this update . They want u to bring it in and waste your time and get into your business. But the corporate store near me said its not out yet they haven't sent him the cd . Me being noisy asking him what cd and if we need the cd . His answer was no . :eek::D the cd is a newer lg update tool. So if u have this update tool erase it. Delete it:eek::what: yes get rid of it and download the new lg tool from the LG WEBSITE . make sure you click on the first METRO PCS. and download all drivers :eek::eek: even if you prompted that u have get the new drivers . . But this update is the zve .

    Also metro say this update is to correct the lte 4g . But ask yourself this question .. Have you had 4g anytime u had service with metro i think we been cheated and this 4g lte was in the status bar and we was getting 3g . That is what i think and believe .ijs :eek::D:mad::banghead:

    I too received this voice mail this morning and I'm worried that its just a refresh to software I already have. Last time I updated it totally killed my ROM and reset it to factory/bloatware.

    So I went and rooted it again and luckily found a fresh ZVE compatible ROM. (I HATE bloatware).

    So far the ZVE seems to give me a smidge better reception but it could just be me.

    So should I update and risk locking out my ROM or is this a ZVE 1.1?

    I just went through the hassle to upgrade to ZVE last week. Has anyone bothered to accept the update and see what it actually does? I got the voicemail this morning and now I'm getting texts...annoying.

    Nevermind...I see there is a new sticky with Metro's PSA.
