    Sprint has offered to swap out my ET4G that has been crippled by the ICS update with a brand new Galaxy Nexus 4G lte device at no charge, and no contract extension!

    SWEET DEAL...

    I'll be rocking jellybean by the end of the week!

    Hate to sound like a sad sport, but unfortunately there are no plans to update galaxy nexus to the jelly bean os. That's what got me thinking about switching to at&t. Android seems to get more support on gsm networks.

    This is why I didn't question Mobil Toys when they said a new phone for me was on a 1 week backorder. I asked if I was going to be getting a refurb or a new phone, and he says, well there's really not a lot of them out there yet, so it will be new. Hence the 1 week backorder. I think (hope) they are going to give me a Galaxy SIII. I'd be happy with that.

    LOL....these people at Sprint are really something. I had one Rep in a corporate store tell me she has never heard of any issues with the ICS update on the S2 and I had another rep\tech on the phone tell me the same. That I am the 1st one to report any issues regarding G4 and battery life issues after ICS update.

    Go figure...

    the last time i spoke to them was about 5 months ago about issues with the phone and sprint service. the ICS update just made everything worse.

    the key is to take notes, keep track of everyone you talk to, and try to deal with the same person everytime.

    this was not just a unjustified complaint as it goes back 5 or so months.

    Can you request to speak with a prior CSR? Or do you just give the history to the current rep?

    The current rep has to look back at all the notes on file and get up to speed. Just went through this last night when I called for a 3rd time.

    Well, I got my Galaxy Nexus today with no problem from the Sprint store, and I couldn't be happier.

    I want you to understand that in my case of getting my phone replaced with a different device may not apply to you. My issue(s) with the ET4G go back about 4 months ago when I purchased the device and the ICS update crippled it even more (my last day with my ET4G the screen was turning on all by itself).

    So if you feel the need to vent to Sprint, feel free to do what I did, but keep in mind your results might not be the same as mine and to be nice! The person you will be talking to is very very very nice! I can't express to you how nice she is...she is not like the dumb@ss support techs, so [HL]PLEASE BE NICE TO HER!!![/HL]

    Her name is Anjonette M. and she can be reached simply by emailing dan@sprint.com

    Before you contact her, write down on a piece of paper exactly what problems you are experiencing so you can make sure she will have everything she needs to address your problems.

    Thats is it.
    Good luck and peace out.....im headed over to the Galaxy Nexus forum
