  • ZTE Engage Maintenance Release Update AVAIL-2/20

    Just had this sent over from my rep. Looks like there is a update for the Engage available on Feb 20th! This is not Jelly Bean, just a software update resolving some issues. Hope this helps anybody with the ZTE Engage!


    We are pleased to announce the availability of a Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) Maintenance Release (MR) software update that will be deployed February 20, 2013 to address several improvements to the ZTE V8000 Engage handset.

    Existing customers with an Engage will be notified via the annunciator bar at the top of the device screen. These customers will simply swipe down from the top of the device screen to open the annunciator and follow the prompts.

    For all new Engage customers, store reps will need to process the update during the activation. Please see below for full details on how to conduct the updates.

    Please Note: NO SMS campaign is planned to further announce the update.

      I've received the update prompt. Pressing OK started downloading an update file of about 33 MB or so. When it got to the end of downloading it failed with "Network error! Download failed.". I get the same message on both wifi and data connections. Apparently there is a problem on the server side. I'll wait until I receive an update prompt again before trying this again. What a useless waste of time this appears to be!
