Sprint's version of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus needs update to repair connectivity issue

0. phoneArena 27 Apr 2012, 17:08 posted on

Sure, you wouldn't expect the Sprint variant of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus to offer LTE connectivity because the carrier does not offer LTE service yet; the problem is that the model is having problems hooking up to Sprint's 3G network...

if Sprint has any 4G issues i will troll unlike anything you've ever seen after all the times Sprint fanboys come in and say "oh well Sprint won't have any of the network issues Verizon has because Sprint will put time and CARE into their network."

@KingKurogiii, I don't think anyone would ever talk bad about Verizon's network and praise Sprint's in the same sentence. Dan Hesse wouldn't even be that stupid.

Nope not even close. Samsung fans are the worst now. Every android article about a phone someone has to say something about the SGS3

It's funny how so many people say its a Sprint Network thing, when the phone is having issues connecting to the network. It's nothing new, because most of Samsung's high end Android devices have always had some kind of issue right after they launch. Usually its a gps issue like they've had the last few phones they launched on various carriers, not just sprint. It's really the main reason that I purchase HTC products to begin with. Even when Samsung comes out with a fix, it's probably gonna mess up something else, which always seems to happen. But I do have to say I do want that Samsung note, with that huge screen, to bad it's on At&t.

Now i'm wondering if Samsung will be able to provide a fix faster than Nokia did with the Lumia 900.

I have a love-hate relationship with the galaxy nexus. Ive been through 4 devices (on Verizon) because i cant maintain a solid connection. Not just 4G, 3G as well. The phone would randomly drop to zero bars. Its terribly frustrating because I LOVE the device. Its beautiful display, stock ICS, the design, etc. I finally gave up and went back to AT&T. Clearly the Gnex has some sort of radio problem.

I can almost guarantee it's an issue with ICS and Samsung. My Nexus had zero issues with bars dropping to zero on Gingerbread 2.3.7, however after the update to ICS the bars occasionally drop anywhere from full to zero without reason. 4.0.4 is on both the Nexus S and the Gnex, both have the same issues. It's never affected data speeds or call quality, but it freaks out some customers when they see it. Doesn't happen often enough to lose sleep over. My money is on ICS and Samsung, not sprint

I'm not sure what sprint fans you're talking about, but I'm one of them and I certainly don't believe we come off as anything close to Apple fans. I didn't think anyone was dumb enough to correlate the two

Sprint 4g is nonexistent. Data speeds suck. Coverage is iffy. Phone selection is ok. I think that covers it all

Go figure this phone is such a POS. Had five of them and the mic cut out during calls daily on every last one of them. The alarm clock is terrible as well among alot of other things. And wheres the update what a joke.. This phone belongs on Sprint there perfect for each other.
