    I am wondering about Sprint customers that might be having issues. With this phone launched over many networks it is hard to see if anyone is having duplicate issues on the Sprint version. So please only post if your having issues on the Sprint Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

    I've read in several places that Sprint users have a hard time getting 4G on their Galaxy Nexus..

    *stifles laughter* :D

    OP i haven't really seen a lot of Sprint issues arise, but i would definitely recommend doing some research like you're doing.


    fwiw you may want to change the title of this thread to something like

    Going on month 2 here and no real issues at all sans the 4G. It's like I'm in a time warp. I was told another 6-12 months for 4G in my area. I was told the same thing 2 years ago when I got my EVO and that never came...

    2 major complaints

    1 wifi range isn't very good

    2 50% of the time i cannot send or receive mms


    aside from that if i don't turn off 3g then my battery goes pretty quick, but with wifi i can go almost 2 days without a charge

    embedded apps that you disable STILL don't stay disabled after the update (ie google books/video!) :mad:

    I've found if you can stay on wifi and have decent service that the battery life is quite good. Also brightness is a big key. These screens hog the juice

    It seems to be decent while I'm attached to wifi but nothing significant. I'm in a bad signal area at home, and even when I'm in a good signal area (at work) doesnt seem that much better and my Nexus picks up less bars than my Evo 3D but the weird thing is my Nexus has gotten better data speeds (consistently) than my Evo 3D ever at home...strange stuff.

    LMAO

    when i had an evo 4g my 3g was alright, never really complained.

    got my evo 3d and 3g was almost useless, in the evo 3d section you can find me bitching about this and how i took my phone in a few times and they told me it was working fine. i'd get between 50-100kbps on speedtest

    got my GN first thing i did when i got home was a speed test, 300kbps. lol

    my 3g is useable again

    i hated that 3vo, one of the worst phones out
