Verizon Galaxy Nexus Update to Fix Signal Issues on Defective Devices

Owners of replacement Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus devices who are experiencing signal issues might soon get some relief as Verizon is slated to push out an Over-the-Air update that promises to fix the issues that many owners of replacement devices are having with their Nexus smartphone.

According to Droid-Life, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus should get an OTA update soon in an effort to shore up some of the signal issues that owners have been experiencing on replacement Verizon Galaxy Nexus smartphones.

Some owners are currently unable to hold a 4G LTE connection for more than a couple of minutes before the connection is lost. And those who have been waiting for the fix have been wondering when one might roll out.

The Verizon Galaxy Nexus’ signal issues will be fixed with a software update.

Well, it appears that Best Buy thinks one will be rolling out soon, this according to a leaked memo. It states that September 14th was the day that it would start to arrive for these replacement devices.

The report claims that some devices already received the update as boxes with an “Updated” sticker appeared so those who are looking to trade-in a Verizon Galaxy Nexus at Best Buy might want to make sure that’s the case before taking a new phone home.


We assume this is a small update.

As for the larger update, namely the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update, we haven’t seen anything concrete in terms of its release date though Verizon is telling customers that the update should be expected soon.
