    I have rooted and unlocked Galaxy Nexus, but I run stock ICS. I know that Verizon already officially released 4.0.4 several weeks ago, but I have not get the notification yet.

    Is it because I have rooted and unlocked phone?

    I think the operative word there is "handful."

    Unless things have changed, rooting alone doesn't prevent OTA updates. Deleting preinstalled apps used to cause the updates to fail.

    Lots of people with root would accept the OTA updates then complain they no longer had root access.

    I have already flashed the radios from that OTA, and the first day I was getting 4G where I previously wasn't. But now I am back to the same old story. So not sure what to think about the radio portion of the update, it could be an improvement, but YMMV will probably be a better statement.

    Just got off the phone with VZW tech. I was reporting random *22899 dialing. She put me on hold to contact Samsung for a solution. She came back and said Samsung told her this is one of several known issues that will be corrected with a software update "this month." She couldn't be more specific than that with timing. It sounded like Samsung knew more about the update timing than VZW though. Only a couple weeks left of this month... I'll believe it when I see it.

    The fact that Samsung knows more about the update than a VZW phone rep is hardly surprising.

    at this point any date that a Samsung or VZW rep gives you for an update should be taken with a huge grain of salt.

    When it comes to VZW, it seems that copious amounts of salt are mandatory.

    I've heard "this month" more times that I can count.

    I'm convinced that they are pointing to a calendar on their cubical wall that is opened to July or possibly August as they are saying it.

    Looking for an OTA update a few months after JB rolls out!

    Isn't the advantage of having a Nexus that the updates come directly from Google? Why is Samsung or Verizon even involved? BTW, I am already rooted and on 4.04 but my wife is still waiting.

    that is if you own a GSM nexus. The other advantage is the fact that it is not locked down.
