WARNING: Phone Volume is really crappy.. (even at highest volume) a regular call to a home/cell sounds really low at your end, as well as other end also complains low volume. I tried different tools, volume+ didn't work fine for me(it made distorted), but Volume Rockers was better. all free apps i tried. But what the hell you buy 350+tax almost 400 phone and you have to have a bit compromise on the very basic feature of call quality. If its not an issue, you can be on top of it, I like for its sleek/screen etc.. except this one imp vol issue. Note: even with 4.1.2 there is no much diff i can recognize.


Runs latest Jelly Bean 4.1.2

Jellybean has been optimized for slicker performance (Project Butter), and includes Google Now, which is a competitor to Siri. Also note that this phone supports Google Wallet.

Siri vs Google...Fight

According to several forum posts, if you have a micro-sim card (used in iPhone 4/4S), you do not need a new sim or an adapter to use it in the Galaxy Nexus (which uses mini-sim card): just slide your micro-sim directly down the middle of the mini-sim slot in Nexus, and it should work.

This is a penta-band GSM phone for AT&T, T-Mobile, many prepaid providers, and the rest of the world. It is a world-phone in a very true sense because it's completely unlocked and supports all the major bands in use.

Galaxy Nexus Extended 2000mah battery. ebay [ebay.com] or cheaper here expansys [expansys-usa.com].
Please note that the NFC device used in Google Wallet and Google Beam need a compatible battery to function. A NFC-enabled battery costs more than the generics.

The screen is a pentile HD SuperAMOLED. It is very sharp, the contrast is great, the colors are vibrant, and it is very readable in the sun. Note that there are defects in the screen of some of the phones, so please look for any problems noted in this thread at XDA Developers. [xda-developers.com]

AT&T and T-Mobile both market their HSPA+ networks as "4G". So this phone will get you the non-LTE "4G" on AT&T. All of T-Mobile's "4G" currently is HSPA+.

Well after getting the 4.2.1 update and patch my volume level for the speaker phone is back down to what it was when bought. None of the google play store apps raise the volume anymore. I was using Equalizer and now it does not work. I used to have to turn the volume down when using a live stream app or it would distort at the upper levels and now I have to cup my hand around the speaker to hear it. Anyone else have this problem, and have you found a solution to it??
I know the volume apps are now not working with the operating system update but I can't complain too much about the level. ESPN Radio, TuneIn stations, Pandora, Scanner Radio etc. all sound fine to me. Just some of the Youtube videos are low...most of which were uploaded with crappy volume to begin with. I stream a lot via bluetooth to the car stereo too.

Yes same issue and sucks. Was nice using SpeakerBoost but now doesn't raise the volume anymore. Just like it was when bought.

Can anyone suggest the best way to get support for this phone? Frustrating looking. My text messaging is driving me nuts. About half the time won't send. Sits there forever and then get a message Message not Sent. Try again and usually works. I get a red triangle in the messages it can't send. It doesn't matter where I am at so don't think a network issue. I have cleaned up messages.

Rebooted it recently? Who's your carrier? Any issues with voice calls?

I have tried rebooting several times. AT&T is our carrier. My wife doesn't have text issues with her iphone. Sometimes I have issues getting a voice call started but not like the issues where text messages can't be sent. Maybe over the last 3 weeks, the texting problem has gotten worse. I have had the phone since like July.
