    They said that back in Jan. And it took 5 months for them to release 4.0.4 the software there talking about this time is 4.1.1 jelly bean which should drop in couple months. This is vzw issue Samsung phones suck on the radio side.

    Verizon has said that this is a known issue and they officially as of July 16th are working on a new software release to fix this issue and will not replace my device. This being a Network issue they will be doing this as quickly as possible...

    I am hoping that this will fix my issues... Just hope that it will come out soon...

    Went to Verizon today and they said that it is a software issue they are currently working on....couldn't give a time line. They said it appears to be a 4G issue directly. I switched it strictly 3g about two hours ago and have had no dropouts to speak of. I know that defeats the purpose of having a 4G phone, but I least i can make calls now.

    Hey guys, here's a good example of that's wrong with my phone. Notice, I have no 4g or 3g at the time I took the screen shot (It was also that way every time I got up last night). Also, I went from a full charge to fourteen percent in six hours, that's sad (With very little use). One more thing is the awake time, I bet all the time the phone was on, I had no signal. Almost all of my phones I've had have this problem to a greater or lesser existent. Any thoughts on a fix or should I just replace it? Thanks.

    Edit, as of the moment I have no signal

    Just a follow-up.. Verizon network teamed called to inform me that this issue is confirmed to be a software related problem on the affected devices and Verizon with the assistance of Samsung will be releasing a software update to address it.

    I really hope it's sooner rather then later. Did they give an eta? Days, weeks, months?

    The ETA will be next year I'm sure so get ready for nothing

    Just "soon". But at least the problem is acknowledged. A temporary workaround is in network mode, choose cdma rather than lte/cdma. At least the signal drops will stop.

    I may have gotten lucky .. the tech rep I spoke to had a Galaxy Nexus personally and has experienced the issue so he was very willing to help. If one rep isn't helpful maybe try calling back and see if you get someone else? Again good luck
    I got my replacement. while 4G is seemingly fragile driving around town -- its rock solid staying in one place. The new one is hardware version 12.01 -- old one was 11.12. I don't know if that makes a difference. I'm happy with this one.

    Well jelly has no binary codes in it
    For radio improvements, its mostly about UI layout enhancements so I don't understand why VZW would be dragging there feet. Unless there so understaffed in that department for testing software.

    I had worse issues with my Stratosphere. Some RAZR owners have had similar issues. The best explanation I've seen is the LTE chip sets are relatively new. 3G had the same growing pains when new. Hopefully next generation LTE chip sets won't have these problems. Verizon was one of the first big carriers to implement LTE.

    Get a new provider.. If your phone is always searching no matter the device, it's the service. No matter the device, if it is always searching for service it will die wayyyyy faster than it should.. wake up dude and look into a new service.

    May I ask where you acquired your 2100mAh battery,
    as I have the same problem regarding lack of longevity of battery life.
    Thanks!

    P. S. - Can the Gnex be charged with a Qi charger?

    Hey urquattro83, you can get the extended battery that I'm using in my phone at amazon, here's the link Amazon.com: Samsung Galaxy Nexus (i515) Extended Battery with Battery Cover: Cell Phones & Accessories Also, I'm not sure if the galaxy nexus works with a Qi charger. Does anyone else here know if it does?

    You will need a new cover for the battery. The one I linked to amazon comes with a new back cover.
