Back at CES, Sprint announced that it would soon be selling the Galaxy Nexus officially in the United States, and will be the second carrier after Verizon to do so. After a few months of complete silence, Sprint finally released the handset on April 18th for $199 along with a $50 credit in Google Wallet. The Galaxy Nexus sold pretty well, and was sold out within hours of its pre-order going live.
However, not all is rosy among Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus owners. Reports sugest that the Sprint’s version of the Galaxy Nexus is also suffering from network reception issue. The phone, apparently, has a very hard time connecting to the carrier’s 3G network.
The good news is that a Sprint’s community moderator has already confirmed that Sprint and Samsung are aware of the problem, and are working hard on rolling out a software update sometime next week. Below is the official statement -:
Sprint/Samsung are aware of this problem and will be releasing a software update to resolve the issue. Can’t commit to a date yet, but they are trying really hard to get it released early next week. Sorry for your troubles.
So yeah, if you own a Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus and are not able to connect to the carrier’s 3G network, just be a little patient for the software update to be available.
