    Thought I goofed up the nexus with a ROM update. I was on wifi most of the night and when I switched it off 3g would never come back. Had to reboot it this morning before it would come back.

    Everyone saying they "weren't prepare" or they should have tested better, etc. What makes you think this has anything to do with the GN launch or an overworked network? 4g has been out for nearly a year now, and I've been on it in Tucson/Phoenix for 3 months. I can't believe it went down nationwide because they started selling the Nexus last week. Or that it is "overworked". It went out at like 7am east coast around the country. Seriously doubt the network was over loaded.

    Not trying to defend Verizon or anything, but some just jump on them at the drop of a hat (or network). Their network is still the best by far. Somebody probably ran into a transformer in Ohio. The big question is how quickly it comes back up. My 3g came on a while ago, so I now at least have data, and we'll see how long it takes for 4g to come back.

    Just funny reading everyone slamming Verizon for "not testing".....when they've been "testing" for about a year now.

    slightly off topic. Does anyone else s GN lock up at the battery charge screen after a power down while it is plugged in?

    I'm thinking Verizon should have gotten the laptops with the shock proof hard drives. Biggest mistake they made.

    I'm from Ohio, occasionally I run into transformers and I find this offensive.

    Ever since Lebron James left there is nothing left to be proud of in Ohio so people have lost all will to live and just drive right into those transformers.
