Verizon support confirms an update for the Galaxy Nexus "soon"
posted by Michael H. / Feb 28, 2013, 7:30 PM
The last update that the Verizon Galaxy Nexus has seen is the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update, and has so far been passed over on 4.1.2, 4.2.1, and the newest version 4.2.2. The news comes from a response by the Verizon support team on Twitter, but the response is a bit strange. The reply read:
The first odd thing about the message is the idea that Samsung would be pushing the update. Since this is a Nexus device, the update should be coming directly from Google just as soon as Verizon finishes "testing" and approves the update. The other thing is that it just mentions "the update", so we have no idea what version is on the way. We'd like to hope that at the very least it would be Android 4.2.1, if not bringing the device all the way to the newest 4.2.2.
Unfortunately, we just have to wait to find out more on it.
Verizon sucks! They are the biggest rip-off company in america.

I already have. I sold my unlimited data plan, which was enough to pay for my Nexus 4. I am so happy I am done with verizon and this awful phone. I saw this article and laughed. They should change the name. This was never a Nexus device.

Honestly? Their NETWORK is the best. Customer service is good. The techs read from a script that ends with "okay we need to do a hard reset" so the help is limited. So maybe they are more polite than actually being good. Everything else is bad. Rates, bad. Phones generally bad (they find ways to screw up the phone or not make good phones available to their customers in favor of "exclusives."). Phone updates, bad. Their greed, offensive. Their need for total control, offensive. But since my wife LOVES Verizon, I tolerate it by doing things to my phone Verizon would rather I not do: root, use google wallet, etc. So why? The network trumps all. Or it used to. Like others, I am reaching the limit of my tolerance. T mobile is looking appealing. I want to keep unlimited data. Their recent news has made them far more appealing than keeping Verizon.

That is not at all why someone buys a Nexus phone though. I commend you for beating the system, but it was so frustrating knowing that after buying a Nexus device on launch day that I was always behind the curve.
