If not being able to make a PHONE CALL from a PHONE is considered whining, then so be it. I have called Verizon... again, and again, and again. I've also called Samsung and that's about an hour of my life that I'm not getting back. I've gone through three replacements and all of them had faulty screens so I sent them all back. And rooting and/or installing custom ROM isn't going to do me any good, unless someone specifically developed a ROM that addressed the audio reboot issues. I bought the Galaxy Nexus because that's the phone I wanted. I didn't buy it to trade it in for a lower-end phone a few months later. That's like buying a Mustang because you wanted a Mustang but you had to trade it in for a Focus because the wheels on the Mustang keep falling off, and Ford is holding onto upgraded lug nuts even though it knows its has customers that have wheels that fall off their Mustangs (not picking on Ford; that's just the first thing that came to mind). I want them to hurry up and release the patch because I am going with another phone if the patch doesn't fix my problem. What choice do I have? I don't pay Verizon what I do every month to surf the web or watch movies; I can do that for free on my wifi tablet. I paid good money for this device, and it doesn't matter whether it was $30 or $300. It should work and I expect them to fix it. Period, end of story.
