    Personally i chose yes. if it is not fixed by january 10th (leaving 5 days), i will return the galaxy nexus. I love the phone, i love the dev support, i love the screen, the speed, the rooting experience, everything.... but i do not want to be worrying about data every time i turn my phone on for the next two years.

    The vzw crap where they will just make the bars show better results without doing anything is unacceptable and makes me think that it is a hardware problem that they are not fixing.

    And dont say there are no data problems because there is. I live in a 4g area. my droid 1 always had 3g in my house. so why is it that my galaxy nexus not only has 4g les then half the time, but cant keep a good 3g connection. if i dont have 4g, im at 1-2 bars with 3g or no data at all, which is just ridiculous.

    I don't like the fact that the update that they will be rolling out is nothing more than a placebo. Not a true fix. The GN is leaving me hanging on a daily basis and I don't like it.

    To me this is a test to see how fast the gnex actually gets an update, the only reason I answer no is that the 15th will be too late for me to return it so I will be stuck with it and a 2 year contract. The only reason I stuck with vzw was because of the nexus and I finally found a rep that kept their word and actually assisted me rather than acting like a total douchebag.

    This is how the rest of Verizon's phones already show signal strength, the Nexus was the first one to show an accurate signal. Apple did the same thing with the 3GS.

    Sorry you have data/signal issues, but there are tons of us who don't. Remember, people who aren't having issues aren't going to come to the forums to complain when they don't have the problem, only the people who are having issues have a voice here.

    So I don't need a signal fix, as long as the phone stays the same as it is now I'll keep it.

    So far, my Nex has had zero issues, so I wont be returning it

    But, if I owned any phone that had issues with signal making it unreliable, as a phone, I assure you I'd return it.

    Here's my take.

    A lot of people coming from a 3g phone will be complaining. Both of the 4g phones I've owned have occasional data sputtering. Its 4g lte technology.... its fairly new still.

    Also there was a nationwide outrage yesterday.

    I won't return mine because its still new and I've been through fixes with the tbolt and still love that phone too. There is a lot ahead for this phone ...and I can't wait to see what comes of it when cm9 is stable.

    Regardless of when your trial period is up, if there were fundamental flaws with the device that didnt allow it to function as intended you could get it corrected/swapped as a warranty issue.

    That said, anyone who thinks that Google would allow a Nexus device to suffer critical flaws is crazy. It is the only Google device currently available. They will make it perform at a high level, period, in my opinion.

    I have no signal problems. I'm in the SF Bay Area and I get signal everywhere. Everywhere I've been so far at least.

    The phone is sitting on the table next to a OG Droid right now and the OG Droid has a better signal by 1dB . In the last week I was able to listen without interruptions to Pandora while traveling, except this morning when we had the nationwide outage. I'm failing to see where the signal problem is.
