Shouldn't that last entry say "two NFC enabled devices" instead of "NRC"?

Folks, try the checkin tool on your dialer. Launch the dialer, and then enter *#*#2432546#*#* and then look for updates from the system menu.

Thank you Sprint finally..  Does this mean they will start pushing the update out little by little, some of us may have it before Easter?

It's about freaking time. It only took 111 days to get this thing ready for us from the December 16, 2011 rollout to other Nexus devices. But hey who's keeping count? At least we're getting it.

Zoom on the camera? Nice.

"Check in" never works for me. It did work when I was with TerribleMobile.

This is hysterical. I decided to quit waiting and loaded 4.04 to my phone last night. Do I need to do anything now like reset it to GB and then update via OTA? Or am I good. I haven't noticed any issues except my phone battery lasts longer and the radio is much better. You seemed like the right person to ask and any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.

Can you post the link to download the .apk file for those of us who want to update it ourselves?

If you believe the update comes in the form of an .apk file, you may want to reconsidered updating your phone yourself.
