    Default We are very lucky!

    I find this amusing and I know I probably shouldn't but I was looking around some other forums And I came across this :http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...e-verizon.html I can't believe people are freaking out over this, that's what made me think how lucky we are. Ice Cream Sandwich....Really?

    If you knew what people went through with the Thunderbolt right from the very beginning, you wouldn't be questioning their excitement or relief.

    I was going to reply to that thread about how great the Nexus 4 is and how Jellybean 4.2 rocks... lol. Verizon is notorious for slow updates and control. Example: Galaxy Nexus on Verizon. Updates are pushed by Verizon NOT Google. The Galaxy Nexus by Verizon is STILL running 4.1. While Galaxy Nexus's running on other carriers have been updated to 4.2.

    Not true. The updates are still pushed by google, Verizon has to approve them.

    Ok...thanx for the correction about who pushes the updates. Gotta love Verizon control... kills two benefits of the Nexus... freedom from carrier control and timely updates.

    From a Thunderbolt owner, that is a miracle. I was surprised we got GB. . .

    I don't think she's so much questioning their excitement as expressing surprise they have to be in that situation in the first place!

    I had a Thunderbolt and ditched it pretty quickly for a Rezound when that came out.

    He said he can't believe they're freaking out over it, and he finds it amusing, so take it how you will, I guess. I think it's pretty immature. And it's nothing about luck. We all made choices, and anyone can root when in a situation such as theirs.

    Maybe the thread should be called "They are very unlucky!"...I mean it's 2013 and they were still on GB?!
    And even now, just ICS after all that wait? Geez
    I haven't held a GB device since late 2011...I can't even remember those days

    Then you'll be shocked to know that major OEMS like Samsung are still shipping NEW handsets with 2.3.

    Yep. Granted, many are prepaid, but OEMS are still making them.

    I am coming from the thunderbolt and still like it. If I had a choice, I would continue to use it. But, my desire to move to an unlocked device, try a lower cost carrier, and avoid feeling like I have to "upgrade" every two years to get my money's worth out of those subsidized plans sent me down this path.

    Yes, so far the nexus looks good and I am sure I will like it. To those who are having trouble comprehending android 2.3, consider this: you just purchased a phone that has no LTE capability. Tell me again who is so behind the times?

    I feel as though, in some ways, I am taking a step backwards going to a nexus from my thunderbolt. I guess that is the price one pays to save some money.

    The N4 has LTE. Just on T-Mobile Canada and Mexico.

    Going from a Thunderbolt to a N4 is a step backwards?! Thanks for the laugh, my friend. That's a good one!

    No it doesn't. It is missing almost all of the hardware that is necessary. All it has is the radio.

    You've said a few times that it doesn't, but have you tried, personally?

    It works for me in Canada on Telus & Koodo (essentially the same network) with no problems getting the same speeds as an iPhone 5 & Xperia Ion using the same carriers.

    I'm assuming that comment was based solely on the lack of LTE support for the N4; it obviously blows the TB out of the water in every other way...but let's face it, if you've been used to Verizon 4G, it can be hard to go back to 3G speeds.

    Dude all its missing is the code which u can input to turn lte on. Bottom line N4 users in mexico and Canada are using the same model everybody else got but with lte. Google it if u don't believe me. Its videos out too and soon T-Mobile users will also.
