Galaxy Nexus Volume/2G Bug Fix Rolling Out “In The Coming Week”


While we sit and wait patiently for the US release of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus our friends across the pond have been enjoying it for almost a week now. As it goes for most beta testers – er, I mean early adopters — a nasty bug was found by way of the device muting itself and then becoming unresponsive — all this after dipping into 2G.

It was weird and Google both acknowledged it and said they were on top of it. Today, we have a more specific, yet still vague time frame on when to expect this update. According to The Verge Google said today, “We’re currently rolling out a fix for the volume issue which will reach everyone in the coming week.”

All we can say now is keep F5’ing that system update in your Settings. Could come any day now. Meanwhile, us “yanks” will continue giving you guys glaring stares.

  1. Released in the UK, to be released soon in America and in Australia no carriers have even confirmed they will carry it. yay!

  2. Ordered today from Handtec.  Canceled my Expansys order.  Expansys is the worst company I have ever attempted to work with.  I say attempted because they were unresponsive. If anyone else has ordered from Expansys, cancel it.  Handtec is cheeper and has faster shipping.  Set to ship tomorrow.  :)

    1. How much was it at Handtec, if you don’t mind me asking of course… 

  3. I will post this image on every Galaxy Nexus news story until it is released on Verizon! :P This just happened today! Rawr!

    1. Ouch!

    2. Guess what happened to me a couple days ago? rofl. also verizon wont let me transfer my number over to my old EnV2 either, because its a basic phone and id lose my unlimited data package…..so the galaxy nexus couldnt come any sooner. 

      1. They allowed me to switch to an old phone and put in notes on my account that removing my unlimited data package was unlimited. When I got my new phone they put me on the 2GB/mo at first while I waited for them to activate my unlimited again(I guess the lower ranked people on the phones don’t have that power). Once they put me back on unlimited, it back dated and  it was like I never had the 2GB and everything was back to normal. Yes that sounds like a pain in the ass, but it worked out.

        1. Interesting. The people at Verizon I talked to seemed either uninformed, or just irritated, in general. I just don’t want to risk giving Verizon a reason to pull my Unlimited plan from me, as 2GB is nothing. I’ll just deal w/ it until whenever the Nexus comes out, I’d do the exchange program: but I don’t want to have to buy a case and stuff for a Razr or whatever. Plus not having a phone gives me less obligations :P

      2. Sucks! Mine still works but I get plastic shards in my fingers! I hope the GNex comes out on the 8th.

        1. Yeah, I really hope so too, but I’m not holding my breath. And mine is kinda functional, the screen got destroyed (run over by a car, i’m surprised its in one piece actually- good ol’ htc build quality lolz). I can still tap around blindly to answer calls and listen to random music hahaha.

          1. In the first place, how did your phone got in the way to be run over by your car?

          2. Good question, being clumsy, I guess. I was getting out of a friend’s car and I had it in my lap. Dropped on the street, and I didnt hear it. As my friend pulled away….*crackkkk* turned around and bam. This is why I’m getting a car dock for my new phone, and a stronger case (not that it would have saved it anyway, lolz). Hahahahha.

      3. Verizon let me switch to my LG dare after my eris broke…
        I can still keep my unlimited once I get my GN, at least that’s what customer service told me.

        1. really? i went to three different stores, and called three different times to customer service. I was told each time there was only a 2 week window (depends on who i asked, twice I got a “you’ll automatically lose it”), and that I would lose my unlimited if I kept a basic phone for longer than 2 weeks.  

  4. I just want verizon to bring this phone out before the end of the year.

  5. Come on Verizon what’s the hold up..

    1. Verizon wants you to get tired of waiting for the nexus and settle down for the razr so they can get as much money as possible into their greedy hands.

      1. So true, I was so close to giving up and getting the razr. If the GNex doesn’t come out by next week I’ll just get the gsm version and say screw you verizon.

  6. Great! I’ll just check my official US GSM version Galaxy Nexus…  hey! Wait a second! Where did I put that?!? That’s right! Verizon and their “exclusive” screwed that up. Everyone thank Google for letting Verizon screw that one up.

    1. Import..

      1. I think what he means is that there is no US GSM version because Verizon’s exclusivity prevents US GSM carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile from releasing the device.

    2. Hmm well us Verizon users were so privledged to have all of the prior Nexus phones supported on their CDMA network……Oh wait!…. No we weren’t!  We Verizon subscribers were excluded from the entire Nexus world until now, that is. Being on the outside of the store looking into the window, at all of the folks having fun inside, can be fun too……… No, it is not fun at all, right?

      1. You can blame Verizon for that one. That’s not the fault of the GSM carriers or Google.

  7. Maybe this is what VZW was waiting for? Hope

    1. they did have that 4.0.2 upgrade to the LTE version earlier this morning, maybe its connected. either way, I hope it doesnt mean more extensive testing considering it was just released today.

  8. Hey, did I just see Abugadro’s logo on the header? :D

  9. Last time The Verge reported that Google said something was when they said the Galaxy Nexus will be out “pretty much everywhere” on Nov 21

  10. is the sim card version even available anywhere in the world? or have they simply not made one yet? id be willing to import it just to get rid of this bastard child vibrant. think it would work on Tmo?

  11. I can’t wait to get this phone, or at least I would really like to.

  12. All of this for a phone that has nothing really great going for it other than ics. The sgs2 with the exynos chip is a true monster and when it gets ics or if they build one with exynos and delivered with ics then that’s what I’ll be buying. I forgot about the nexus screen, it is a beauty but not enough to make me rush out and get one. To those that do import one to the states best of luck to you,I sincerely hope you love it and have no issues at all.

    1. Galaxy Nexus has NFC chips which SGS2 doesn’t sport. You’ll get to enjoy Android Beam with Galaxy Nexus.

      1. Android beam will be cool, although I can’t say I know any people with a phone with an NFC chip (or anyone even planning to get one). I’m not speaking for everyone, but I know I won’t be using that feature for awhile until NFC becomes more common than just the Nexus devices. I am looking forward to paying for things, but the lack of Google Wallet support on the GSM version currently has me worried (although that’s what XDA is for, hahaha). I know Verizon invested a lot in Isis, but I heard that won’t be available until next year at the earliest.

        1. You have a point, but with NFC running on Galaxy Nexus, we could be expecting NFC powered device for the next year.
