    VZW Galaxy Nexus Experiencing Signal Issues; Verizon Acknowledges & Working on Fix


    It seems that some users are experiencing some signal issues with their brand new ICS device, the Galaxy Nexus. In a tweet, Verizon shared that the issue is being investigated and that a software fix is being developed to deal with the problem. The issue seems to be related to sporadic signal strength LTE performance drops and calls dropped due to low signal strength. Sound off in the forums if you are one of the unlucky users with these issues.

    Hopefully this will address the issues. I've had no problems with signal outdoors, but the second I walk inside, my phone is pretty much useless. Was going to be returning the phone today or tomorrow unless Samsung or Verizon acknowledged the issues. Hope they get this one corrected because apart from the bad signal issues, the phone has been wonderful.

    My 4G tends to hang up here and there, drop to 3G, or drop out altogether but I had the same problem with my OG. I almost want to say it's my apartment which is strange since I'm in Dallas. 4G is much faster at work in Coppell and never drops. Still, it'd be nice to see some timely "official" support. It's something we aren't very used to in the community.

    No issues for me, i'm on 4g all day, i even stopped using my home wifi because its so fast. I use around 1.5gb a month so i can't say that i'm on it constantly but its there when i need it. On the other hand i did have 4g drops with the RAZR i had for a month... So the Galaxy is a step up for me.

    yeah 3g has been dropping in and out like crazy for me as well. Have considerably less signal at my house than I did with my D1.

    I've already been told by VZW to return mine for a new one. Apparently Samsung wants these devices with bad reception back so they can examine them.

    I returned my first one the second day I had it (due to random reboots) but it was dropping data pretty bad. GNex #2 isn't doing any better ... this one will be going back tonight too. Not due to data (I think that's a software issue - I hope!) but because while showing off my new toy at work, it froze up (of course) and I had to do a battery pull. When I took the back cover off I was hit with that burning electric smell Everything still works, but even hours later I can smell it. Call *611 and they said an exchange shouldn't be an issue. Even offered to waive $35 restocking fee if I decided to go to another device ... don't see that happening - yet lol

    Just hoping this is not going to be like the Bionic, which still seems to have problems
