If you own a Verizon Android phone and wish you could use it while traveling abroad an announcement just made by the carrier might be important. Verizon intends to roll out a software update for the following four phones that enable the ability to use the phone abroad:

  • HTC Rezound
  • DROID RAZR by Motorola
  • DROID RAZR MAXX by Motorola
  • DROID 4 by Motorola

No date for the updates have been given other than "this summer" so owners shouldn't have too long to wait. Note that once the phones have been updated, customers will need a Verizon global plan to use it overseas.
