I'm done.

I'm giving up on the Galaxy Nexus, calling it quits. I have tried everything,  new radios, older radios, nothing besides new hardware is going to fix this phone.

I would love more than anything though to see this community get together and file a class-action lawsuit against Verizon, for false advertising. I bought a 4G phone with every intention of using it just as is, but I was forced out of pure desperation to void my warranty and take matters into my own hands after exhausting all possible options just in an attempt to use the product that we (the consumers) expected to receive from day one.

If anyone has a solution to the constantly shoddy data signal, please PLEASE tell us your secret. I really don't want to downgrade to my BlackBerry 9650 but unless this is 100% fixed in a week, then I will see absolutely no choice.

The new firmware that is being pushed as I type this. Oh thats right, you voided the warranty. Well the firmware may brick the phone now. Dont blame VZW for that if it occurs.

Considering that many of us are not having issues I doubt a class action lawsuit would be considered.

Since the OTA update is supposed to fix a lot of problems, you could always go back to stock and wait for the upddate. If hardware truly is the problem you're having get Verizon to swap it for a different device.

I got the new firmware this morning and it still doesn't fix the mic muting mid-call issue. I don't know what to do now. I'm so disappointed that Verizon, Samsung and Google can't figure this issue out. I love the Nexus as far as using the data part of it but it is unusable as a phone.

When I say that "...to void my warranty" I was making my point for potential legal actions. Unlocking on this device doesn't void anything, the only way to brick a nexus would be to put it in a wall surrounded my mortar. I know exactly what I'm doing when I choose to modify my devices, thanks.

I'm really sorry to hear that, all I can say is to look for a toolkit and create an account on >Post edited to comply with VZW ToS<, the community there is a lot more knowledgeable and if it is a big issue, (as it appears to be) then I'm sure there is already a fix for it, >Edited to comply with VZW ToS<

I love how moderators are quick to edit posts to comply with the rules, but no one from VZW addresses the real issues.

I took the same route as the OP and am debating keeping things as-is or going back to stock and doing the OTA update. I will probably choose the former so that I don't have to wait another 5 months for VZW to apply the fixes that this update was supposed to fix.

Anyone try Master Reset after getting the OTA? I know it'll be the first thing most troubleshooting will say to do in order to clear out any apps or settings that may possibly actually be the cause of some issues.

Just a thought since it seems like some people are having more issues than others. It's wither got to be an app or hardware at this point. I experience some minor bugs while using my GNex but I'm not about to start a law suit over it.
