If you want just the radio, go here: [DOWNLOAD] New CDMA/LTE Radios for the Galaxy Nexus. Download the file and flash it through clockwork.
Good to know I wasn't the only one with bad timing! I flashed the 4.0.3 radio and 5 mins later is when the network went down. 4 nandroids later and a lot of freaking out I called vz and got the auto "we know we suck, sorry" message.
