I have a galaxy nexus for Verizon and here is my issue. When I receive an incoming call, I slide to unlock to answer the call, the phone will freeze and loop the ringtone for a couple seconds and then boom, Phone reboots and I have a big google logo on the screen. Also when I make a call, after hitting dial it does the same thing for outgoing calls. It doesnt happen everytime but I would say it happens 20% of the time...also I purchased on December 15th so I think I am out of luck on a store exchange....I did a hard reset already and am still having the same problem. It has been getting progressively worse...
Almost has to be a software problem, likely associated with some app you've downloaded. If it were my phone, I'd do a hard reset again, NOT download a single app and use the phone for a day or two. If all is well, SLOWLY start adding your apps back and see what the last few apps were if it happens again.
Unfortubately, I'm adding my name to the list. I received my GNex on the 11th of Feb. The first call I received after activating my phone caused it to feeeze and reboot after sliding to answed. This happens, like ether said, maybe 20% of the time. If anyone stumbles into a solution please share.
I got this issue last night with incoming and outgoing calls, the phone would just reboot as soon as the call connected. I pulled the battery and took the SIM card out and waited a minute. Seemed to fix the problem. I am not sure what the issue was.
I did a factory reset last night. It did't cure my problem, but it made it better. It still crashes when sending and receiving calls, but less frequently. Verizon is sending me a new phone. I'll report back when my new phone arrives.
Again, I'm going to agree with Ether. I got my second GNex on the 22nd and haven't had an issue so far. I'm quite happy with my Gnex now. I couldn't go back to the Droid X and the lag after using this phone.
This happened to me as well a few times. On another forum someone said its a known issue but vzw and Samsung deny there being any issue. I would call vzw and let them know what's happening. May need to report it a few times before they ship you a new phone.
