Galaxy Nexus: 4G LTE connection unreliable for many

By Alan Ng - Jan 2, 2012

If you are in possession of a new Galaxy Nexus smartphone on Verizon Wireless, there’s a fair chance that you may have been getting frustrated over the apparent issue involving 4G LTE connection issues which Verizon has already acknowledged as a problem for some users.

We first reported on the 4G LTE issues almost two weeks ago, after many users were complaining of slow or no 4G LTE signal in their area after picking their device up from Verizon. At the time, the problems were minor and were thought to be dependent on where a user was situated.

However, after reading some feedback over at Droid-Life, it has become aware that a lot of you are suffering from 4G LTE related problems on the Galaxy Nexus and at the moment, Verizon has still not issued the software fix that they promised to deliver two weeks ago.

In some cases we’ve even heard that users are not receiving 3G signal aside from a lack of 4G LTE connection, this happening in areas when other devices receive 3G signal with no problems. Users could have guessed that Verizon would have some initial teething problems with their 4G LTE service since it is still rolling out to many states for the first time, but perhaps Galaxy Nexus owners did not expect frequent problems such as this.

It’s worth pointing out that other users are not having any sort of issues with receiving a solid 4G LTE signal with their Galaxy Nexus, but judging by the feedback over at Droid-Life, the number of users that are not getting any signal is growing by the day. Hopefully we’ll get word from Verizon this week regarding a fix, but it isn’t a good start to 2012 if your Galaxy Nexus is having trouble getting a solid signal.

How is your signal in your area at the moment? Are you having frequent problems, or is it more of a sporadic issue for you?
