    This is a first with this phone...

    You Tube will just not stop buffering as I'm watching a video. Since the day I got it its been silky smooth. Now its basically un watchable as is...

    Anybody else having issues?

    What kind of network is this happening to you on 4G, 3G, WIFI, all?

    Mostly 4G! I'm in a completely solid 4G area...Even with 3 4G bars this is happening.

    hmm odd. Hopefully just a youtube issue. Have you gone in apps and cleared all cache for the youtube app?

    btw are you rooted?

    I have this happen as well and it is extremely frustrating. Mostly on the 3G network but I thought I'd ask, have you gone into settings of youtube and made sure its not check marked to load in high def? If it is trying to load every video in high def, this could be adding to the issue.

    Is it ok on wifi? If so, it is the network.

    In part it is the network, but it isn't universal to all phones. The nexus buffers when my rezound does not.

    Just ran a half dozen videos over 3G in my area on the way home tonight. Took a couple seconds to buffer at the start of each, and never hiccuped throughout any of them. Dunno.

    I'm having hiccups on just about all the videos I play on you tube.

    My TB, Charge, Bionic and Razr never had this problem on 4G...

    Going in to do an Exchange today!

    Do us a favor and let us know if you see a difference on your new device...particularly if you get another nexus. I experienced continual buffering on my Nexus, while not on my Rezound, but that was in 3G areas, not 4G.
