Defective Verizon Galaxy Nexus Devices to Receive OTA Update to Address Signal Issues

A few weeks ago, we reported that a number of replacement Galaxy Nexus devices were having major signal issues. If you were to get stuck with one of these, you likely couldn’t hold a 4G connection for more than a few minutes before it would drop. To call it a “frustrating” situation is a gross understatement. Some of our readers went through a half a dozen replacement devices before finally receiving one that did not have this issue. Many are under the impression that version I515.10 of the device is to blame.

Best Buy is under the impression that a software update will rollout to these devices over the next couple of days to address the problem. It doesn’t sound like this is Jelly Bean (Android 4.1), but more of a bug fixer instead, since Samsung has apparently figured out the problem. 

If you happen to swing by a Best Buy this weekend to buy a Galaxy Nexus, you may want to inquire about this update. We are hearing that many of the affected devices have an “Updated” sticker on the box.

Cheers J!

    So what do I do if I bought my Nexus when they came out and it has signal issues?

    124 posts and still no one mentions that they received this update, amazing!! Another Best Buy exclusive that meant 100% crap as usual!

    Is the IMM76Q only being placed on brand new, non-refurbished phones?

    • It’s being placed on brand new and factory refurbished phones.

    The text goes over the border of the text box. Is that a typical thing that happens in these types of pictures? Or only when they are ‘shopped?

    I like the irony here. The defective devices can’t keep a signal, so …. kinda like emailing support saying help me, I can’t receive emails ….
