There’s been a lot of buzz going around about possible signal strength issues with Verizon’s LTE Galaxy Nexus. While I have yet to personally experience these issues, there seems to be enough people who have — enough so, that Verizon even tweeted about it. Today, VZW Support tweeted in response to a users questions about signal strength saying:
The signal strength issue is currently being investigated. We don’t have an ETA, but a software update is being developed. ^MS
Even though the response states that the issue is “currently being investigated,” it would seem there is an issue if Verizon is developing a software update to fix it. That being said, this wouldn’t be the first Verizon LTE device to experience such issues.
The guys over at Android Police believe the issues are stemming from the millions of new 4G LTE UICC SIM cards attempting to connect to Verizon’s 3G network with an authenticating process not previously used on Verizon’s network. This theory makes sense and begs the question: “Has Verizon been rolling out their 4G LTE network/devices a little too quickly?”
Lucky for me, I haven’t experienced these problems yet, but if Verizon is acknowledging such issues, perhaps it’s only a matter of time before I do. Are any of our readers owners of Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus? Have you suffered from poor signal strength? I’d love to hear from you and get your take on things. Leave us a comment about what types of signal issues you’ve been experiencing and for how long and we’ll keep you updated on the issue.
