Im not very optimistic either. However, its gotten less frequent with each leaked radio iteration. I experience it more when running custom roms.. not sure why. I have an upgrade available on my 2nd line. I just want to get to a point where this only happens rarely and this POS is going to my fiancee. She is not a techy so it will be a pretty big upgrade over her og Dinc. I'm currently researching my next phone now. *if I can't get to a point that I am confident enough in the GNex as phone to give it to her then we're out. Paying ETF and will be moving to a new carrier. Then will sell the GNex to cover the ETF. *Edit Updating the PRL hasn't caused me any issues. Was able to revert back by pulling sim and battery and rebooting... after additional reading PRL is prob best left alone.
