Beginning April 16, AT&T customers with an LG Escape will be able to download the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) update for their smartphones.
Jelly Bean makes your smartphone easier to use through several enhancements, including changes to the notification display that groups updates from the same application together, and allows you to expand or collapse notifications. Customers will also be able to view the full text of an SMS message and the full photo of a MMS in the notification window.
AT&T DriveMode® is now available through the Jelly Bean update. The DriveMode app is designed to limit texting while driving by automatically replying to incoming texts, emails, and wireless callers once your car reaches 25 mph. It lets friends and family know that you are driving and unable to respond without having to take your eyes off the road.
Customers can update the software from their phones with a Wi-Fi connection. To do so, pull down the notification panel, select Settings>General>About phone>Software Update>Update Now and follow the prompts.
