4.05 update

i'm guessing the 4.05 update was a bunch of crap!!! December 21st Verizon said that they where aware of the problems and a update was coming to fix them. I was told by Verizon support that an update would be coming before the end of March. I have gone through 3 Nexus phones and still can't get signal in my house. I have been a loyal customer since Verizon was Airtouch, and I had pager service with them. But I'm done. I'm tired of the run around with this phone.

I second this post.  Verizon needs to get their head out of their ass and atleast post a comment whats going on.  It was the same problems when they were getting ready to release their "flagship" phone.  No updates at all.  No support.  No help...  Don't come out and tell us you are working on a fix and let it be 4 months later with still no fix.  I love the phone but am tired of the random restarts, only have 1-2 bars of service, waiting 5 minutes for it to switch between 3g/4g, and only being able to use 1 live wallper.  I bought the Nexus because of the promised speedy updated from android. I didn't know speedy meant once per year...

4.0.5 isn’t out yet a lot of people are waiting for it already. It’s anyone’s guess when this update will be released, but rumor has it that it’s aimed for some time in April 2012. Verizon has yet to confirm if these rumors are true.

It has already been leaked that Sprint is shipping their Nexus with the 4.0.4 version of ICS. Sprint operates on CDMA technology also. So if Verizon isn't the hold up, then what is?

Their 4G LTE network is doesn't exist in most of the US, and so they focused on the CDMA radio which has been out a lot longer.  A lot of people are having problems with that more than the CDMA radio.  To simply look at the numbers for the update without knowing what the update includes you would come to the question you just asked.

Google is withholding the update due to bugs that arose when the leaked 4.0.4.  So those Sprint version will have those bugs which you will about to find out what they are and some of them you'd be glad you didn't have to deal with them.

The problem with that argument of withholding the update is that no update is going to be absolutely perfect, so putting off releasing any updates until a perfect one is made ends up yielding no results at all and even more frustration because customers feel that they are being ignored.

At this point, none of the known problems are being addressed, and some people are finding their phone useless, and I'm pretty sure they'll take some of the new problems than the ones they are facing now.

Besides, the ones who have flashed ROM leaks of this have been glowing about this update more than tearing it down.

With that argument there is always a point where you have to WITHHOLD an update because of bugs that are not bearable.  People are complaining about battery life and there is a bug in 4.0.4 that keeps the device from SLEEPING when it should to save battery life.  Those who have flashed the rom have been glowing about the update are feeling the placebo effect.  There's more to it, and before you say I don't know what I am talking...  I have flashed it more than once and since it is a leak you don't get those reports as if it is real deal.  You will see what I am talking about soon enough as Sprint just launched their device.  Smiley Happy

There is always a point where you have to WITHHOLD an update because of bugs that are unbearable, but the battery life bug, if there is one, is the lesser of a few evils. Random cut offs and bad radios to name a couple should trump that. A placebo effect? Those who have flashed it aren't going to be quiet about any bad effects. Especially, since they've had it flashed for months now. And how can the battery be any worse than those on 4.0.2? People have been complaining about battery life since the day the Nexus has been released. That's not localized to version 4.0.4.

Withholding an update for 5 months when the lifespan of your device is less than 2 years is ridiculous. Fixing some flaws is a better avenue to take than fixing none at all.

Dude...  4.0.4 wasn't 5 months old.  4.0.3 isn't 5 months old either...  We are on 4.0.2 which the GSM model didn't get until 2-3 months later...
