    I was just wondering what the newest rumor was since this one didn't pan out. The rumor mill has its fun points. (always something to talk or argue about).

    Hmmm...good point. :) Nope, no new rumors, that I've found...just a rehash of the original.

    Well seeing that we only got 4.0.4 stock update from a 'leaked' OTA that never materialized I am not at all hopeful we will see a 4.0.5 stock update any time soon. Seems that the Gnex is stuck currently on 4.0.2 stock official OTA while other devices are getting official OTA to at least 4.0.4. So much for being a Google flagship phone first in line for updates... oh well time will tell but Google and Verizon are handling things poorly (probably mostly Verizon) when it comes to the Gnex... heck even Samsung is handling things quite poorly with their lack of docking stations. Strange that these companies are handling the Gnex so poorly.

    I am pleased with the 4.0.4 stock update that came via 'leaked' OTA... my Gnex generally runs very well.

    Unfortunately, in the case of Verizon anyway, I think it's b/c the Nexus doesn't have a marketing campaign that includes an iPhone or a commercial where a robot destroys the world, or the phone slices through metal, or something along those lines...

    According to BMX, his version of 4.0.5 runs fine. He's says Verizon has what they need from Google, but Big Red is delaying because of unicorns....

    Now that I think about it. I don't remember seeing any commercial featuring the Galaxy Nexus, past or present. Strange.

    Only GNex ads I have seen are online. Hopefully 4.0.5 will materialize soon :)

    There has been one Nexus commercial and it showed off Google+, that's it. They really should've made use of NFC feature as no other phone on Verizon has it (to my knowledge anyway). Big Red failed at pushing this phone.

    'Someone' should just leak 4.0.5 for the Gnex... Verizon is a useless partner for Gnex... and Samsung should get off their rear end and sell the stinking docks with or without official update...

    Showed people beat boxing, was terrible lol.

    But yeah there was so many things they could have highlighted about the Nexus/ICS in a commercial, seems odd they wouldn't want to use even a 10th of the money they spent advertising the Razr. But I guess they like their bloatware devices a bit more.

    I missed that one. That's what I get for not paying attention to commercials. I guess I should Google it to see what I missed. :-D

    At any rate, I like my GNex and I like Verizon. It's better than my old Fascinate (which I thought was an awesome phone), and my two previous Black Berries (A Curve then a Storm 2) don't even rank in the same league. My wife has my old Fascinate and she thinks it's a great phone.

    Where I'm at in South Eastern Arizona, most of the complaints about phone service come from my Sprint and AT&T friends. My Verizon and T-Mobile friends are all pretty much happy campers when it comes to our 3G and voice service. We (Verizon at any rate) don't have 4G LTE yet, but I expect it here in the next four to six months. That's based on past experience of how Verizon rolled out there 3G in this area; not from any official Verizon announcement.

    I'm not all that concerned. It will come out when it comes out and not one second sooner. I still think the GNex is a great phone. I've owned one other Android (Fascinate), two different Black Berries (Curve and Storm 2) and a Palm Treo and the GNex kicks the snot out of all of them. I won't ever own an iPhone, mainly because I am not a Kool-aid drinker. :biggrin:
