One of the perks of owning a Nexus device is that not only does your device come with a stock Android experience, but updates are usually prioritized for you guys first. Well sometimes being first isn’t everything, and it looks like GSM versions of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus who have updated to Android 4.0.4 are experiencing a host of issues namely in the connectivity area.

There have been user reports that when the phone enters sleep/screen off mode, the device will lose its signal completely causing missed calls, delayed SMS, delayed push notifications and basically everything that requires a network signal in order to work. Google has since acknowledged the issue and is asking for users to submit bug reports to help with the developing of a solution. Until a solution has been found, it has been suggested that users with rooted devices clock their CPU’s minimum speed to 700MHz or simply revert back to Android 4.0.2.

It should be noted that this issue is currently affecting GSM Galaxy Nexus devices, so for those who own Verizon’s CDMA version of the Galaxy Nexus, you guys should be safe. So, any GSM Galaxy Nexus owners experiencing the problem described above, and have you found a workaround of your own?
