Oh Canada! Samsung GALAXY Nexus users up north get their Jelly Bean update

Oh Canada! Samsung GALAXY Nexus users up north get their Jelly Bean update
The Samsung GALAXY Nexus and Android 4.1 might give those in  the states the best reason to cross over the border since, well, the sixties. But instead of evading something, those heading north want to take part in something-the Jelly Bean update for the Samsung GALAXY Nexus. Canadians with the device who are customers of TELUS, WIND, Fido and Rogers (there's an odd sounding foursome) have been finding the update on their handset. If you are a customer of one of those operators, your phone should have Jelly Beans coming out of every port. If not, go to Menu >> Settings >> About phone >> System software updates >> and it should be there. If you can't find it, make sure your phone doesn't say Verizon on it.

Samsung GALAXY Nexus owners in Canada are full of beans

Samsung GALAXY Nexus owners in Canada are full of beans

Ok, we joke but for those Big Red customers who thought that things just had to be different with a Nexus model, we can only feel for you. Take a phone like the Samsung Galaxy S III and despite having Samsung's TouchWiz running on top of Android, that device seems set to receive Android 4.1 before Verizon's stock Android Samsung GALAXY Nexus. Just yesterday, a leaked version of Android 4.1.1 was making the rounds for Verizon customers of the Samsung Galaxy S III, hinting that the real thing can't be too far away.

Even fellow CDMA carrier Sprint has updated its version of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus. But let's not spoil what should be a happy day for those Canadian owners of the phone. Verizon customers will surely see Android 4.1 on their Samsung GALAXY Nexus someday in the future.

Yea the wait is ridiculous, i think everyone owning the verizon model should complain and remind them that customers are what keeps them in business

This $h*t is unbelievable!! I love how Verizon blames the delay of the OTA on Google and Samsung (I've heard it blamed on both by tech support reps), when clearly Samsung and Google want the Nexus to have Jelly Bean because it has been sent to virtually every other carrier. I can't help but think VZW impedes updates to try and get customers to buy new phones with the new software version! I love my GNex with ICS, but Jelly Bean was promised to GNex users 2 months ago and still, nothin for VZW!! GET YOUR SHI* TOGETHER VERIZON!!

you will be fine if you root your phone. It is hard to break your phone. The things i did to my GNEX..... It should be dead. LOL This phone is bad a$$ and it was ment to last. Plus you can take it back to where VZW will never know that you rooted the phone. Just do it!!
