Galaxy Nexus |OT|

Launcher getting kicked out of memory is somewhat annoying too.
Always seems to happen after a session in Chrome.

GSM Users rejoice. Found a new yay to force down the OTA onto your phone

1. go to setting / apps then hit the all button at the top

2. scroll down to google services framework and then press it to open

3. hit the clear data button

4. go to settings / about phone / system updates

5. hit the check now button

6. you should get the 4.0.4 update

7. hit install and enjoy
May have to redo steps 3-5 a number of times (for what its worth, worked on my second go)

Downloading 4.0.4 OTA now :)

This only really works if the update has been pushed to your device, but for some reason the phone hasn't told you there is an update.

I did this a few times and nothing happened. Hell, I think it actually killed push notifications on some of my apps, notably twitter.

Anyone else on GAF with a GSM model has received the update?

How does this work? Do they push them out to specific serials or something? Mine was one of the first batches from Handtec! I should be the first to get it.

(didn't work, tried 6-7 times)

I believe the OTAs are done in batches, but which phones are included in these batches is done at random. I'm sure the update is pushed out to Googlers first though.
 
Anybody have a current contract that they ordered their upgrade phone on Amazon? I'm on Verizon but I have unlimited data grandfathered, but I'm afraid if I upgrade my phone through Amazon I will lose my unlimited data. Anybody know for sure?

This phone is 99 bucks and I figured that was a pretty good deal.

I replied in the Android OT, but just in case....

I posted this in the Galaxy thread, but I don't know how fast it moves so I'll ask here:

I believe Amazon has the ability to check account status, upgrade eligibility, and such, BUT they can only offer current plans. I don't believe they can handle grandfathering. I ordered my Droid Charge from them last summer, but this was right before the "Unlimited" went away, and was still available. Here is the question on their help page....

Amazon Wireless said:
I’m already paying for a plan with my carrier. Why am I asked to choose another plan during the ordering process? Am I going to be charged more?

When you upgrade an individual line of service, you'll choose a new plan based on the carrier’s current plan offerings. The new plan will replace your existing plan; any differences in the plan price will be reflected on your monthly bill from the carrier.
I'd definitely write them and ask first, just to be sure. Amazon is always really awesome with responding to things like that, so I'm sure they'll be able to answer....

Got my nexus yesterday from dailysteals for $465. It was a yakjuxw build, so I had to flash it with googles stock 4.0.4 yakju build. Big improvement over my nexus one.

Are you sure the $99 isn't the new customer price? (Currently 79.99 for new customers, 229 for upgrades).
 
If I leave my phone idle on wifi for a while, it loses Internet connectivity, while still being on my network . I then have to turn wifi off and on to get Internet connection back. None of the other ~4 devices on my network experience this.

This is on the leaked 4.0.4 VZW build, rooted. Any insight?

You could set wifi to 'Always on' so it doesn't disconnect in idle/sleep mode.
(wifi settings, menu button, advanced)

This happens to me too on 4.0.2 and 4.0.1 before that.

http://m.engadget.com/default/artic...axy-nexus-signal-problem-issue-android-4-0-4/

According to an increasingly vocal swath of members at xda-developers (and confirmed by a listing on Google's own Support page), there are mysterious signal issues now troubling the device. For many users, there's an inexplicable loss of signal -- a complete inability to make or receive calls and text messages -- after applying the v4.0.4 update, though it's beginning to look like Sleep is the issue.
Looks like this OTA might get pulled. I have a feeling we won't see it hit the GSM model any time soon.

I say give it back to HTC. The Nexus One, and the new Ones (lol?) are all lookers and high spec'd.
 
So Verizon still hasn't pushed the 4.0.4 OTA update yet? Glad it's not just me, then.

Has the official update surfaced anywhere that I can flash manually like I did with the leaked 4.0.4?
 
Here's the situation: (reposting here to get a better idea of how nexus users enjoy the device for browsing)

Wife broke her back (all is well now though, been a week, she's at home) which means my computer usage has been all but taken away. In addition, I have the go-ahead to get a business line so I can work out of my home while watching over her for the most part. Have a G2X now, and my go-to couch browsing device has been my Transformer Prime. However, wife is basically the owner of the Prime now.

I got used to a speedy tablet, though I found it was a bit too large most of the time, especially when it comes to doing something like trying to post on GAF. I actually prefer typing on my G2X over it but G2X is too small for browsing. Though the business will cover the monthly cell bill, I will need to pay for the phone myself.

I am drooling over the Note super hard, as it seems to fulfill all of the functions I'm talking about here. However, I am really really apprehensive about going with AT&T between the rates and really crappy data plans. Additionally, Galaxy Nexus is 80 friggin bucks right now on Amazon. I'd imagine if I went with this route, I'd just have the Nexus hold me over until ASUS releases the rumored Nexus Pad at which point I'd go back to my two-touch-device system.

So, what say you GAF? Note and crap AT&T or not-as-awesome Galaxy Nexus and much better Verizon? Is there another awesome really big phone that I'm overlooking?

tl;dr: Got used to Transformer Prime, don't have it anymore. Want something smaller, but 4" G2X doesn't cut it. Go with Note, or go with Nexus and hold off for Nexus Tablet?

GNex + Verizon + Chrome (Android 4 only) = browsing bliss
 
I had my galaxy nexus for three weeks now, I switched on my phone today and a message came up "SIM network unlock PIN" I restarted and factory reset a couple of times but it doesn't seem to solve anything... Is there a way Around is?

I bought my phone online and I don't want to pay for an unlock code!! Help!
 
Some big news for those into the custom ROM scene, fully customize able nav bar in the latest AOKP:

http://m.engadget.com/default/artic...t-navigation-bar/&category=classic&postPage=1


...and I think this will be the last smartphone I get for a while. While I enjoy the experience, using the aosp built custom roms, the nexus platform has become an unmitigated disaster. That's not to speak of the shitastically supported ICS, the greatest Android OS no one knows about.

Seems like you can't fully win with any phone, can you?

*sigh

I'm kinda hoping WP takes off by the time I want a new phone.
