Motorola Cliq Update Released, Update Now


Dearest Motorola Cliq users, Motorola has not forgotten about you.  With that in mind, Motorola is rolling out the 1.4.8 update to all Motorola Cliq users.  The end of March saw a trial run of this update presumably to get some feedback before releasing it en masse. Well, apparently enough time has passed and the bugs have hopefully been worked out as Motorola has released instructions for updating.  It is definitely not an Android update, but it’s a laundry list of bug fixes sure to hold you over until you get some 2.0+ love.

Instructions for installing software

  1. For a successful installation, we recommend installing these updates while the battery in your phone is fully charged.  Make sure you have an active SIM card installed in your phone.
  2. This software update will be accomplished in two steps.
  3. First Step: Select the Settings icon in the main menu.
  4. Select About phone and then select System Updates.
  5. Select Download; after the software is downloaded, select Install.
  6. After the software is installed, your phone will re-start automatically.
  7. Second Step: After your phone restarts, you will receive a prompt to download the second update. If you are not automatically prompted for the second software update, you should manually check for updates. From the main menu, select the Settings icon, select About phone, select System Updates.
  8. Select Download; after software is downloaded, select Install.
  9. After the software is installed, your phone will re-start automatically.
  10. Your phone is now updated with 1.4.8 software.

    Companies are adding Swype at an extra cost per phone (Remember that Swype only was added with the 3.5mm jack update). If you want Swype on a Cliq, get your hands on the XT, which benefits from the tech a lot more!

      update on the MyTouch, that is. Apologies for the lack of detail.

    updated my phone successfully…works 10X’S NAY, 100X’S BETTER…a lot snappier and more responsive. calls are clearer, the end call button actually works! Nicely done MOTO! its about time…my phone had difficulty after the install of the second part. it got hung up at the “stick together” pink tmo screen. i just had to take the battery out (i was really nervous and thought to myself “here we go again”) and then put the batter back in and turned the phone back on. it works flawlessly. im actually proud and happy to own my phone again.

    Thank you Motorola, for real…lets get/keep our act together and roll out 2.1 faster than the end of June.

    My phone isn’t on, paying bill later, and picked up the update through Wi-Fi. I have the update going now but it’s not doing anything. Will it update, and if it will, how long will it take?

    just go to
    update from motorola.
    as long as you follow the steps correctly (VERY EASY)
    You will update your phone to android 2.2 (blur version)
