Nexus S still has reboot issue; nasty bug cuts off phone calls randomly
The handset is available exclusively from T-Mobile and is loaded with stock Android 2.3 out of the box. Google employees have tried to come up with an upgrade and are on their second attempt. A recent update to Android 2.3.2 did not include a solution to the problem. Of course, Google will not let this problem last forever, and eventually an upgrade will be sent. But for now, Nexus S users have to keep their fingers crossed when on an important call to try to keep away the evil spirits that are causing the phone to reboot in the middle of a call.

Why would anybody chance buying a product like this when it obviously has problems out of the box, especially on a network with limited coverage and no UMA calling on this phone. Don't you guys get tired of all the bullshit these manufacturers throw at us. Android is looking worse all the time. RIM and Apple are looking better all the time.

Agreed, except RIM isn't looking to good and that leaves Apple. Android is too fragmented leaving tons of problems over tons of handsets.

You recommend apple as a phone that doesn't have problems out of the box? Where have you been the last 5 years?

No one said Apple doesn't have problems, but they have less problems than android...

Nokia still makes the best mobile phones (you know - you use those to talk mainly)

it seems everyone - the manufacturers and the users rush after the "smart" of the smartphone very frequently forgetting the importance of "phone' in it! What with all the antenna gate, sms to wrong numbers and calls being dropped as a result of phone restarting!!
if i just wanted tons of fart apps or a sexy gadget with cool interface i may go in for an ipod touch or a tablet. But for my smartPHONE needs, Nokia still is the way to go. Symbian may not have the best user interface or the most apps, but still is extremely functional and efficient. nokia still rules as far as phones are considered.
