A number of GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus users are reporting that their smartphone starts misbehaving after the Android 4.0.4 update is installed onto the device. In particular, the smartphone loses cellular signal when it is left in stand-by mode for over a couple of minutes, meaning that it is unable to receive calls or text messages, let alone establish a 3G connection. Connectivity is restored only after the smartphone is brought out of stand-by, according to those who reported the issue.
What exactly causes the connectivity issue is still unknown, but the good news is that not all Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphones are affected. Several owners confirm having no troubles even after updating to Android 4.0.4, so the problem, apparently, affects only a specific batch of devices. Reportedly, Google has been made aware of the issue, and we are hoping that a fix is underway. In the meantime, those of you who are having such problems with your Samsung Galaxy Nexus are free to share your experience with us by dropping a comment below.
