    Has anyone else had issues with their Galaxy Nexus dropping all connections? For example, my Galaxy Nexus will routinely drop both WiFi and the 3G/4G signal. Is anyone else having this problem?

    Dang! Will Verizon ship me another Galaxy Nexus, or something else? Any idea if the issue is hardware or software?

    Its hardware. Call there 1800# and they will ship one to you. And when they ask you to do a factory reset just tell them you already did it. A reset won't fix it and it will save you time

    I did a factory rest earlier this week and it didn't help at all. I'll give them a call. I hope that they'll send me another Nexus, or at worst a Rezound. I'm not a Motorola fan after having six Droid 2's.

    If it's within warranty, they'll send you a new one. Some people went through several before getting one that workedl

    I'm on hold with tech support now...hopefully it'll work. They wanted to just mail me a new SIM card out, but I made sure that he knew that it was an issue on WiFi also.

    I bought my nexus on 7/3/12. On 7/4/12 I went back to Verizon because of issues with no service. They replaced the sim card. This did not change anything. On 7/5/12, I did some playing around with the phone and found that if I kept the phone on CDMA mode only, I had no drops in both 3g and 4g markets. As soon as I went back to LTE/CDMA mode, I lost all service. Yesterday I went back to Verizon with this information and they switched it out for a new Nexus right there in the store. I have only had one drop since the exchange.

    I've been reading that its a hardware problem but I took mine in to the verizon store yesterday and they swapped the sim card out and it has better connection at home. Not sure about work yet but I will now by Monday.

    Would the SIM Card affect WiFi though?

    It would not -- at least, it's highly unlikely. Are you running stock, or a custom ROM/kernel?

    Come to think of it, I had issues Thursday keeping wifi connection. Sounds like you are in the same boat I was in, and have a defective phone. I would get a new one.

    Don't forget that the Verizon fixall is the good ol factory reset. Which isn't true. Obviously

    I don't see it being hardware since it is happening across all android phones on Verizon. My stock Rezound can't keep a 4g signal now for a few weeks. Before that I had no trouble. I say it is on verizons end.

    That I didn't know...thanks for the tip. Mine did get worse after that storm earlier this month. I'm not sure if it's just a coincidence or not.

    And I just got my refurbished Galaxy Nexus in the mail today. Would you believe that the problem is WORSE on the replacement device?

    Same here, I'm on number 3 and still having the issue, but in all fairness Nexus #2 did not have signal problems on 4G, just #1 and #3. #2 had a terrible screen,anytime I switched to an app with a light colored screen, I can still see the imprint of the icons on the home screen. Also, the colors seemed very dull.

    Phone is pretty amazing on 3G and Wi-Fi, too bad Wi-Fi is limited where I am and 3G is slow

    My wife has been having issues with her's as well. Verizon said there is a known issue for this and they are working with Samsung on a fix. Unfortunately they have no eta on the fix though. They said reset will not fix it and a new sim doesn't help either. I had another one sent out but it was just as bad. I sent the second one back and kept the original since it was brand new... Guess we hurry up and wait...
