Motorola Live Update Guide for Motorola Phone Tools - MPT 4.50 Upgrades to 4.51C

Upon the completion of my Motorola Phone Tools software, version 4.50 I wanted to make sure I had the most recent and updated version of the Mobile Phone Tools software. Motorola is nice enough to include and program call Motorola Live Update which checks the current version of your Motorola Phone Tools (aka MPT or Mobile Phone Tools) and then sees if there is a more up-to-date version.

In my particular case, the Motorola Live Update program identified that a newer version of the Motorola Phone Tools 4.50 was available, the lastest version showed as version 4.51c and was approximately 18MB in size.

This guide will take you through the update and installation process for Motorola Live Updatea and the MPT program. If you do not already have Motorola Phone Tools, there may be a sponsor on this page that has it available.

Here is the step-by-step guide:

1. The introduction to the installation process. Per the instructions, "The Motorola Phone Tools software you have may not be the latest available version. Motorola Live Update will now verify if your softwware version and download a more recent on if available." Make sure to click next to determine if there is a new version available.
