    Been on 4.04 since they leaked. I have better 3g to 4g handoff, slightly better signal and am faster.

    Haven't been in a 4G area since upgrading, but it does seem to get a TAD better signal in the office (3G).

    Ugh, I've had some poor handover problems the passed couple days. On Liquid 1.25 with the .4 radios. Not sure if it's a timing thing, or I need to switch ROMs.

    I forgot, but how do you check to see what radios you are running. Which ones are the 4.0.4 is what I'm asking, I know how to see in the phone status.

    I think that's the latest unless something has leaked and I missed it. That is the whole # on mine just couldn't type it all since I'm on the phone.

    15109 here also.
    VZ has also snuck 4g service here a couple of weeks ago. It just mysteriously showed up.

    That was probably from ME. I called Tier 2 tech support at Verizon about why my phone kept ghost calling out for programming. I was told that the Nexus is supposed to get all its programming by OTA, and should never be calling out. Too much of this, she said, could, in fact, fry the SIM card... and proceeded to recommend a full data reset (which I understand from others doesn't fix it).

    How accurate her statement was is, of course, up for debate; I was just passing along what I was told directly by Verizon.

    Got another 50' ethernet cable coming to the apartment today to wire my new Mac directly to the router since there is no wi-fi on the desktop and its cheaper than buying a wireless card and verifying it works with OSX86 project.

    HAHA sweet - I love that the SDK is available for developers. I cannot wait to see what people come up with for apps on this thing. Also this part has me so stoked.

    Awesome! Had my wife not bought me the watch I'm wearing, I'd get one of those. They are freaking awesome.

    Ryan, that's great! Did you make any other changes last night besides the prl update? Do you know what you were on before you updated to 52686? My signal is also better on this prl.

    Geez, if I WORE a watch I'd jump on this. Alas, I haven't worn a watch in years and I won't start just because it's a really COOL watch...

    CONGRATS on being a backer though: you're gonna love Pebble! :D

    I had no idea how much I looked at my watch until it was in the shop for a couple of days. I admit, I'm a slave to it.
