Late last week, we started hearing some new rumblings about Verizon’s plans for bringing global roaming to some of its Android lineup. We already knew that both the Motorola Droid 4 and LG’s Spectrum would make the cut, and Verizon would activate their roaming abilities at some point in the future. The new leak that brought the issue back to the forefront last week concerned HTC’s Rezound, with an in-store display advertising the pending arrival of global roaming as one of the handset’s features. There were also rumors accompanying that find that Motorola’s Droid RAZR (Maxx) would join this group, but with no similar evidence to support the claim. With all this uncertainty hanging in the air, the time was ripe for Verizon to address the situation, and now the carrier has done just that, releasing a short statement.

Verizon confirms that the Droid 4, RAZR, RAZR Maxx, and Rezound will all be getting software updates to enable global roaming sometime this summer. That means the feature may not be arriving as soon as we hoped, especially if we’re waiting up through September, but at the least it’s good to see the carrier address those rumors about the additional models.

We’re curious what happened to plans for global roaming on the Spectrum. Did Verizon forget about it, or did it quietly arrive and everyone missed it? We had also seen a leak suggesting that the then-HTC-Fireball would be getting it, too; Verizon hasn’t yet addressed the update’s potential availability for the Droid Incredible 4G LTE.
