    Verizon is claiming the GNex is not having a reception issue just an issue with how strength is displayed.

    Don't let them leave us hanging! We need a real fix!!!

    No thanks, I'd rather work through tier 2 VZW support and have them open a ticket.

    Have you done that? :D

    I read an article that most twittering of problems with companies almost always go unanswered. Wasted time IMHO.

    LOL. I'll bet they finally decided, and then finally twittered it (is that even a word? Most people use "tweet" but that's not accurate IMHO).

    Go for it if you want to! But won't it be #verizonwireless instead? Hmmmmm :D

    Internet movements are pretty overrated. It didn't make "Snakes On A Plane" the biggest movie of all time, it will never get Ron Paul elected, and it won't fix your phone problems.

    Wasn't he #1 on most likely to fail in the latest R poll?

    Politics will go up and down. A fix for this phone will come out and then we can poll all we want.

    For now, it's working without issue here! :D:D

    It's a ton better than my old droid charge!

    Thanks for all the don't waste your time comments. Yeah I guess I'd rather call 611 and talk to some mindless drone who probably doesn't even know the GNex was released

    That's my point my Charge got better signal than my Nexus

    No it didn't. That day there was a recorded shareholders briefing, or something to that effect, where the Nexus availability was as inquired about and the speaker said they would carry it. After that mistake got leaked they had to save face.

    JFYI, these hash tags do work. Verizon threatened to sue Negri electronics over it's #verizonsucks coupon hash.

    I am thinking of everyone who bought this device. Not just myself. I want this phone to be the end all be all, at least for the next couple months lol

    My personal opinion is it's a hardware thing (crappy radio) and that will simply never get fixed. They'll sweep it under the rug and just hope the phones sell anyway. Look at the charge and bionic.

    I wouldn't say you were an idiot at all, its just the wrong way to go about it and honestly I doubt Verizon would even care.

    Well then that gives me hope. I thought people said the charge was garbage for 4G? Or was it only initially that it was? If they were able to fix it with radio/firmware updates, then perhaps they can fix it on the Nexus. For my individual case, they have until 1/14. At that point I will need to decide if I think they will fix it eventually or not. If I think they will, I'll probably just roll back to my dinc and pray for a speedy fix to the issues. If not, I'll get a Rezound.

    No, we went though a dozen charges in the office. Data drops (airplane mode to fix) and the popping when you hit the power button to wake it up. I have a thread on xda about it, and each replacement for several of us had the same issues.

    I got swapped to a different phone, and we finally got a new version as a replacement... no issues. Go figure :) Also the version, with my specific instructions, had no issues on older versions.

    But the SGN is leagues above the charge. Loading a heavy website takes a second on the SGN where as in the charge it used to take 30+ seconds.

    And why is this so hard to believe? I show 2 bars of service and get 15+ Mbps down at a minimum. Have had no dropped calls, and my 3G has been as good as ever.

    I don't particularly care how many bars are shown. I care about function. I get plenty of function.
  22. jkc120

    jkc120 Android Expert

    It's hard to believe because many people are reporting that their nexus drops from 4G to 3G when they enter buildings, while the rezound (or other 4G phones) would not.

    Which could very well be caused by the phone mis-reporting the signal as low and forcing it to look for a 3G signal...

    Verizon said the dBm are correct. They are updating the bars' interpretation of the dBm. So that's a load of you know what.

    I said it before, if the software bases when to drop from 4G to 3G based on how many bars are displayed and not the actual dBm/asu, then whoever wrote that code should be fired, pronto.

    Nobody knows what the engineers are actually working on.

    You all arguing about it before then is a waste of my time. How many of you have reported your experiences to VZW and worked with tier 2 tech support? If you haven't, you should.
