    Looks like we'll need to jump ship to Sprint if we want to get the Google Experience.....

    I'm happy with my Nexus still

    If Sprint significantly improves their network... next time around I may just do that!

    Screw Verizon, Samsung, Google or whoever is the fault a 'flag ship' phone not getting proper service. Loaded up AOKP... no more OTA for me those guys are asleep at the switch.

    I think I'd put the blame on Verizon for this one. It's not part of their Droid lineup so their attention to it was going to be minimal, something I did see coming. Verizon got what they wanted, pretty good sales for the Nexus because it was exclusive, I wasn't expecting much support for it tbh. Which is why I am thankful that so many developers put their time and effort into it, at least we got a community to rely on. Disappointed that Verizon has pretty much neglected the Nexus, but that's how the cookie crumbles...

    Yea I have to agree... screw Verizon! lol Only reason I am on Verizon is their network and I could get a phone that could easily be unlocked and like you said custom development. Verizon doesn't care. I like Verizon for their network and usually dislike most everything else about them. lol

    I've never had a bad experience with them, so I got nothing against them. What I don't understand is how they can gloat about having an exclusive, know about the problems, and then neglect the customers/problems. They don't even give an estimated release date for an update, but all they say is "a future update will address the issues". They handled the whole Nexus deal poorly, from release date til now. If you have a chance to push such a product you should take advantage of it, not what Verizon is doing.

    Verizon either didn't want the Nexus to be successful because they couldn't put bloat on it or they didn't realize what they had. Either way, they've screwed up and this proves it.

    Well to be fair, I've heard we were always going to be getting 4.0.5 and not 4.0.4. So it's possible that it's just taken this long to finish 4.0.5, somehow I doubt it though.

    The problem is the same problem we've had since the beginning of Android, the big F word.
