Tru SIM, No coverage, wireless technical support

Well, here’s some unfortunate news for those of you using the Galaxy Nexus with your Tru SIM service. Apparently, the GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus is experiencing some mysterious signal issues after updating to Android 4.0.4.

This news comes from Google’s support forums, XDA Developers, and Engadget:

According to an increasingly vocal swath of members at xda-developers (and confirmed by a listing on Google’s own Support page), there are mysterious signal issues now troubling the device. For many users, there’s an inexplicable loss of signal — a complete inability to make or receive calls and text messages — after applying the v4.0.4 update…

According to the Google support forums, the issue has been sidestepped by keeping the device from going into sleep mode. This, of course, means you better be bringing a USB charger, car charger, or home charger with you everywhere you go. Aren’t you glad we posted this useful USB charging article now?
