Verizon galaxy nexus gets 4.2.2 before sprint

Verizon was behind in updates but jumped past sprint a few weeks ago. Waiting on you sprint. We were doing better than most carriers. Why drop the ball now

Tell me about it. How did Verizon just beat us to it as we were 2 updates ahead just 2 months ago. I think Sprint needs to get on the ball immediately unless they plan on just waiting for the Key Lime Pie and send that update out.

jturkey2000,

Thank you for your post. We are in process of getting a heads up about all android updates coming. This info is coming from the manufacturers. and Sprint is waiting to hear back as the company that makes the devices to have a better idea on when an update is ready.

Any more news on this issue? Phone is eating batteries hope 4.2.2 fixes that.

And this surprises you? Every other carrier is one step ahead of Sprint. Hell even Cricket offers LTE service in the Phoenix area and Sprint failed to ever even launch regular 4g after promising it 3 years ago. Cricket may or may not own their LTE towers but, they still offer the service and at a cheaper rate that this crap we all pay for.

Re: Verizon galaxy nexus gets 4.2.2 before sprint

Not really any improvement in battery life between 4.2.1 and 4.2.2

All other carriers are not one step ahead of Sprint. T-Mobile is just now turning on 4G LTE in select cities.

Re: Verizon galaxy nexus gets 4.2.2 before sprint

At this point with Google I/O just around the corner and the widely believed rumor that Android 4.3 (still Jellybean) will be revealed, Sprint is probably focusing on 4.3 instead of the minor bump from 4.2.1 to 4.2.2.  We can't know for certain until Google I/O but it looks like Key Lime Pie (the rumored Android 5.0) is still being developed and 4.3 will actually be what is unveiled.  Rumor has it that Google is slowing down the major Android revisions to give the manufacturers and developers room to breathe between releases which should be good for everyone.  Anyway, personally I can't see sticking with Sprint for a whole lot longer when T-Mo has no contract plans and is a GSM carrier so I can buy a device straight from Google and get my updates straight from them too.  All that aside though, it does seem unlikely Sprint is investing anything into 4.2.2 with 4.3 just around the corner.

Saw this on Drippler -

Update Galaxy Nexus with Official Jellybean 4.2.2 to get Official Jellybean 4.3 Firmware

when is SPH-L700 gonna get 4.2.2 ?

Re: Verizon galaxy nexus gets 4.2.2 before sprint

Saw the same article on drippler and on the Nexus forums. I'm looking forward to seeing the response you get from this. Send like carriers these days want customers but don't care to keep them happy. I guess when people catch on to the fact that it's better to just buy an unlocked phone and use pre-paid service, then  might listen.
