    More likely a faulty model since no one else has reported the issue. That's what warranties are for

    I see no sources to his claims over on that forum though? Anyone else know where I can see a source displaying these problems he's stating?

    A little bird told me the 20th or the 22nd...but I probably shouldn't be talking to little birds

    If Verizon would come out and say "the phone is delayed because of serious bugs in the software that make the device practically unusable, but we're working to release it as soon as possible", I for one would be a lot more patient. It's the total silence that's frustrating.

    Well since he has tue phone and is experiencing the problems. I would guess the source would be himself.

    They would NEVER do that. Reason being; Saying anything has bugs, serious or otherwise would completely dampen the consumer response to the product upon release. Think about it; if Ford came out and said that they were delaying the release of a car due to serious software bugs; people would totally pass on it when it came out. Sure a few would still purchase but those "few" would be people who had to knowledge of any issue to begin with. Such is the case with cell phones. Those who frequent the forums are sizable enough where Verizon would never publicly delay a phone's release due to serious bugs. Patience has less to do with it than a big Ole CYA for Verizon (Samsung/Google as well). Negative press just prior to a release is damning the phone's retail capabilities.

    As to the person claiming the phone has serious bugs....... I call bs...... I'd like some real proof that the person not only has the phone but it is activated as well.

    I think that one reason for the delay might be that they didn't want two OTAs overlapping too much - the Bionic soak test started last weekend and the rollout started yesterday, and my understanding from other threads/forums is that the Nexus is supposed to take an OTA as soon as it's activated. Perhaps Verizon wanted to clear some bandwidth by getting a decent number of the Bionic OTAs out of the way before launching the Nexus?

    My source says 4.0.2 didn't fix all the bugs and that guy needs to update his phone.

    Source

    And seeing as how 4.1 was supposedly ready to go by the 8th or 11th, I'm not certain it fixed everything either.
