    basically, if i disconnect from the wifi, the mobile network signal will go gray until i restart the phone. after that it works again, so im basically restarting my phone every time i leave my house...

    I am having the exact same issue. Once I connect to wifi and try switching back my 3g stays grey and never connects until I reboot my phone. Nothing else works, I've tried airplane mode, network type and even left it on over night and nothing.

    Also my first post :)

    Welcome to the forum guys. I've had my GNex since launch day and haven't had that problem yet. Are your phones stock?

    I have the same problem. Apparently there is some sort of signal switching problem known and they are in the works of sending out an update for it.

    Network connection

    I'm on my second Galaxy Nexus, the download speeds are much better with the second one, but I'm having the same problem when I turn off wi-fi. I have to restart the phone. Today, I turned off the wifi and checked the signal, it was reading -120 and it was searching for a signal. I rebooted and the signal showed at -95 and I had a 4G connection. I love the phone, but what a pain in the ass. I have to do this anytime I turn off wifi.

    you gotta give it some time to connect to the 4g or 3g networks. 4.0.3 slightly helps out with this problem.

    i'm having a similar problem, however for me its not connecting to 3G now at all. I could get on 4G network and when its on 3G i can text/call but no data. luckily at work I have 4G and at home I can connect to wifi but this is really annoying. I've tried restarting the phone, turned the phone off and pulled the battery for 30 seconds, still no luck getting my 3G data back. Anyone else experience this?

    yes, go to your store and exchange it, you got 14 days worry free, use it, im on phone 4, 2 with connectivity problems, one with rebooting, call tech support and have them notate your account, they are otherwise......useless. All you can do is let them know there IS a problem and your not the only one with the problem, for a top tier phone there is some sort of expectation of reliability, otherwise just take it back until you get one your satisfied with, ive got high hopes for my current phone, dont take no for an answer, be persistent and good luck

    I hate to be "that guy" who tells you to root your phone, but....flashing the leaked 4.0.3 radios makes a HUGE difference in this problem. I have instantaneous handoff between mobile data and wifi.
