    I ordered a replacement nexus because people keep telling me the voice quality on my nexus sucked. After getting a replacement device it is worse than the original defected device.

    My replacement will not keep a connection on 4G, voice or data. When trying to surf the web I lose network every 2 or 3 minutes. When making a call it will drop with the same time frame.

    My original device never once had any kind of data issues. I'm having a 2nd replacement sent overnight with Saturday delivery.

    How common is this? I'm now worried I'll have a hard time getting a nexus without data issues. I now wish I would have just dealt with the voice quality issues as it wasn't 100% of the time.

    Just wondering if anyone has gotten a replacement that was worse than the original, and how common it is for the phone not to work on 4G, thanks.

    That doesn't sound very promising, unfortunately I've already returned my original unit. I got it to work without interruption by disabling 4G and selecting CDMA only. This will get me by until I get a second replacement tomorrow. I just hope after tomorrow I have no further issues.

    I was told if I don't get a working unit after 3 replacements I could choose between a rezound or razr. My wife has a rezound and after talking to coworkers about the razr I don't want either, I just want a nexus that works. :mad:
