    All the sprint hating is crazy y'all must think it takes a snap of a finger for lte smfh. I'll never EVER be with Verizon or att again data caps is the reason why u can't ever take advantage of 4g I'll take sprint unlimited any day even if its a couple mb slower than vzw

The only hope is AT&T. By the time my contract ends next August I expect that AT&T will have a decent LTE footprint although I don't expect them to catch up to Verizon for another couple of years. Assuming that AT&T has a decent network I'll by my next Nexus phone directly from Google and skip the contract. I don't want any carrier in the way of updates.

    It is a bummer that it's taking a while to get the JB update from VZW, but on the VZW Nexus, rooted with the JB roms that are out there, I'm not missing anything. The best of both worlds. As long as a Nexus device is available on VZW, I will stay, root and not look back. The JB roms that are out there are better or will be improved faster than anything VZW or even Google will provide.

    I dont know why I have Verizon. I switched from Sprint to goto Verizon specifically for this phone.

    I just saw on youtube that people are getting EXCELLENT speeds on t mobile 4g. I live in NYC so suspect my speeds would be just as good.

    I dont know why Im tolerating this non sense with Verizon when I can get a tmobile with a prepaid setup and get updates the day they come out, high 4g speeds and a decent prepaid plan. Might I also mention NO CONTRACT.

    What am I missing? As long as I can get some service when Im snowboarding then Im considering the switch. There MUST be something Im not considering.

    Sprint sucks by the way.

    No. Only the unlocked, GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus, which you buy direct from Google's Play Store. Only a Nexus is available direct from Google. Nexus phones are also available from the carriers, but...

    Anything you buy from a carrier store or order from a carrier website (in particular Verizon or Sprint), will have some carrier influence: either bloatware or skins, or in the case of a Nexus device, delays in getting updates to the latest version of Android, despite the fact that the unlocked GSM version gets it right away.

    If you buy a Nexus device from a carrier, be prepared to root and apply a ROM if you don't want to wait (possibly months) for an update.

    To me, it does sound a bit annoying at first that the Verizon Nexus takes longer to get updated, but then I think, "Who am I kidding? My phone is rooted and I'll have a ROM on it way faster than any official releases." And then I'm like, "Whatever."

    Note: This is NOT meant to be an argument for rooting. I am merely stating my own position in the matter.

    I'm as annoyed as just about all the people who have posted here at Verizon. I was hoping the Nexus phone would provide updates quickly-hasnt really turned out that way. I've generally been a purist and have not modified the phone because I am nervous I'm going to brick or break it. TO be honest, the true power in this phone is twofold:
    1-Verizon's network is arguably the best out there.
    2-While their updates are so frustrating slow, you have the ability to tinker with it and flash what you want on it.

    I've not taken advantage of option two-I'm serious thinking about finding out how to do this-I think I saw a guide from Dmmark somewhere and thats probably the best route. I feel like a dunce but I dont understand all the rooting and such and dont feel like setting my phone back to factory default either (also lazy).

    now that Sprint has officially confirmed the OTA Jelly Bean update...

    is Verizon even working on getting OTA Jelly Bean released?

    it sure feels like those six VZW employees are on vacation right now.

    I have sprint but I've been reading your comments and you all have to realize they need to test products. I know it can be annoying waiting but I'm glad Verizon always gets updated first because I get to sit back and root until all the kinks are complained about. O by the way sprint gave away FREE 2100mah batteries for galaxy nexus owners. :] dueces.

    Don't Panic. Start there then read the unlocking guides. Or read them in tandem. I'll be there to help .

    agreed... Sprint 3G coverage is bad(but not as bad as the worst one, T-Mobile)
    Sprint 4G is about as easy to find as Romney's tax returns between 1997 and 2005.
    (particulary 2003-2004)

    but if a sucky Sprint can manage to squeeze OTA jelly bean
    out so "qucikly" what does that say about Verizon?

    I think the real answer here is you should of went with TMobile or AT & T and got the GSM version and you would be first in line

    Sprint/Verizon will always hold up an update with their proprietary files and extensive internal testing.

    Everything else being equal I would switch to another carrier based on how fast they give me the latest os. But you know what? Everything else is not equal. I do not base my choice of network on the speed of os updates. I base it on coverage where I live and travel.

    Yup. You should see the signal comparison between my Verizon GN and my fiance's Sprint GN in the same exact location. That's why I stick with Big Red, at least until the next Nexus is released.

    They found them and are holding them hostage for 1 million bucks......The tax returns I am referrign too. The 3g/4g Sprint is still no where to be found. We need the guy who found the tax returns to find Sprint.
