I'm going on close to 11 months with my Gnex now as I originally purchased it towards the end of December 2011. My first nexus rebooted every 10 minutes (literally) and I got it replaced in January. This one I haven't had the drops in mic issues or massive data outages, but getting a signal is tricky. Over the weekend while my wife drove, I spent some time playing with her iPhone 4S. Why? Because mine didn't get a signal. Her iPhone had full bars of 3G, while mine barely had one. Yeah I know you should look at DBMs, but that is a pain to do on the iPhone. These limits in signal don't necessary happen just anytime, but in certain areas it's just like driving through a hole, yet her phone is unfazed. The newest radios don't make much of a difference, other than visually giving me more bars. That's about it. I've spent some time on the phone with Verizon about this and we've all heard it. They basically refuse to admit there is any problem with this phone, but they have offered me refurbs to be fair. Having spent a fair amount of time on these forums, refurbs don't necessarily solve the problem and some might have worse problems. Does the GNex still have reception issues that just won't be fixed? Should I risk it and get a refurb and just tolerate what I have? My warranty is close to expiring and I'm debating whether or not I want to go through the trouble. Stock and locked by the way.
