    Default Sprint Galaxy Nexus gets official OTA Jelly Bean tomorrow (Sep 6)

    Sprint Galaxy Nexus gets official OTA Jelly Bean tomorrow (Sep 6)...

    I guess this means Verizon Wireless has officially ditched current Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners and moving on?

    Is it just me or does this news make you mad at Verizon as well?

    (1) It's unconfirmed.

    (2) It does not mean that in the least.

    (3) We have the leaked OTA right here. Flash it if you'd like, but I'm sure it's right around the corner. Verizon has and always will be slow with updates, unfortunately.

    I already have JB on my VZ GN. No... I'm just mad that VZ doesn't seem to care that
    a third-rate cell carrier like Sprint is getting OTA JB to its customers first.

    Verizon is usually last when it comes to releasing updates, so it's no surprise that Sprint might be releasing before them.

    What Mr. Gadget said--it's not a matter of caring, it's a matter of how Verizon has always operated.

    agreed.... I guess I just feel like an ***** for sticking with VZW over the years. I was adding
    up all the VZW bills that I paid for the last 10+ years.(been with them since they were still
    BellAtlantic Mobile) I am embarrased to say I have paid them almost $15,000. (enough for
    a nice compact car)

    lol damn, but I don't think my family is too far behind, unfortunately.

    If the next Nexus isn't on Verizon (and it probably won't be), I'm outta here lol

    Same here. My Nexus was my last two year agreement. So, if vzw doesn't get the nexus I too will bail. I'm sure so. E other company wants my four lines.

    not sure If I would bail just for a phone... luckily Im one of those who, for the first time, find myself not keeping up with all the latest phones being released. Im actually satisfied for the first time with what I got.... planning on going the whole two years for the first time ever...after that we will see... maybe once LTE is the mainstream standard verizon will again get a nexi... one can dream...

    Ofcourse if they dont get another nexi and I get forced off unlimited, then I may go ahead and switch

    The *only* reason that I'm still with Verizon
    is the grandfathered unlimited data plan.
    I can't find any other reason to put up with
    VZW's BS. (pardon my Dutch)

    As long as Verizon lets me keep it, I'll probably stay with them. There are
    many things that I hate about Verizon, but the unlimited data is something
    I can't live without. My average data usage for the last couple of years
    has been at least 60GB+ per month.
    Without unlimited, I would probably be paying $300 or more per month.

    I just had that dispute with a Sprint fella when I went in there to get my fiancee a phone. I use 7-8 gigs a month. I use my data. Why would I want to downgrade to a worse network?!

    But alas...

    I was under the impression that the Nexus line will become a series or fleet of devices across all manufacturers and carriers. If that's the case, I'm sure VZW will always have a Nexus Class device in stock.

    It's only a rumor. No confirmation of that.

    It would be great if Google could get true Nexus devices deployed simultaneously across all carriers, but the carriers don't have much incentive for allowing it. They'd much rather push phones that they can load up with their own (bloatware) services...and lock down (so they can charge for) things like tethering.

    I'm well aware that Sprint usually gets updates before Verizon does.

    I think that is the whole point of the data "bucket". Carriers know that we can tether faster than they can stop us. When they do stop or punish by throttling we all get ticked off. The bucket idea says use as much as you want and any way you want but it ain't free. Face palm, who's idea was unlimited anyway...@ the Verizon board room meeting.

    No doubt. The carriers underestimated the demand for data and the progress of phone technology. They got caught with their shorts down providing "unlimited" data and had to regroup to figure out how to support all the demand.

    Plus, they want to cash-in any way they can. Unlimited data was fine when people had feature phones that barely used any data. Once phones got smarter and more demanding, the carriers' networks weren't equipped to handle it. They had to scramble to upgrade the infrastructure ($$$$$). Sprint (and now T-Mobile) can get away with it because they have fewer subscribers. Verizon and AT&T can't afford to let all of their subscribers go hog-wild with data. Their networks would be brought to their knees. Hence, shared data plans (with caps) and subtle increases in pricing.

    I'm back to sprint after my contract expires next year. I figure their 4g network will be up to snuff by then. Verizon has a great network but its getting annoying with the forever updates.

    Hmmph that's the problem with carriers and nexus devices, if you don't buy it from Google it will never be a true nexus device. That's why I skipped the gnex for the s3

    I seriously doubt if Sprint's LTE network will ever be competitive with Verizon's, they don't have the resources. I was on Sprint for years, the bandwidth of their 3G network was 1/3rd of Verizon's 3G network. All reports on what little LTE they have say it's by far the lowest performing LTE network. 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 buy my next Nexus phone directly from Google and skip the contract. I don't want any carrier in the way of updates.

    The Verizon Nexus is source, part of AOSP (Sprint is not, FWIW). Regardless, I consider that more worthy of the Nexus definition than not. The "true" Nexus debate is built on subjective misunderstandings IMO.
