Sprint's Samsung GALAXY Nexus
Some members of the Sprint community forum have been complaining about connectivity problems with the carrier's version of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus. You might chuckle and ask yourself how could these people not know that Sprint doesn't have its LTE pipeline up and running for its subscribers yet. Of course there would be no connectivity. But the problem has nothing to do with 4G. It seems that the handset is having a connectivity problem hooking up to Sprint's 3G network. Users are able to make and take calls, send and receive text, but are unable to complete a 3G data connection
Some have been able to swap out units and have received a new phone, but others have been turned away by the carrier
and were told that a software update is coming that will eliminate the 3G connectivity problems with the phone. A moderator on the forum says that Sprint has been working hard to get the software update rolling out early next week.
"Sprint/Samsung are aware of this problem and will be releasing a software update to resolve the issue. Can't commit to a date yet, but they are trying really hard to get it released early next week. Sorry for your troubles"-Moderator on Sprint Community
