Google Set to Fix Nexus One 3G Issues Nexus One 3G Fix Expected Next Week, But 3G Network Coverage & Performance Also Cited As A Potential Factor
the month concerning a fair number of Nexus One owners reporting issues
with the Nexus One s 3G reception and now its been confirmed that
Google, HTC and T-Mobile are working on a fix with engineers apparently
having narrowed in on one particular (unnamed) issue that could affect
3G Nexus One reception in �specific cases .
Our engineers have uncovered specific cases for which a software fix
should improve connectivity to 3G for some users, � says a post on the
Nexus One support forums. �We are testing this fix now, initial results
are positive, and if everything progresses as planned, we will provide
an over-the-air software update to your phone in the next week or so .
As stated above, no specific detail as to what this fix is, or what it
specifically addresses (hence giving an insight as to quite what s up)
has been provided and, interestingly, it would seem that though a fix is
confirmed as pending part of the problem could be users �being on the
edge or outside of 3G coverage � which a �product fix cannot address. �
Of course there are many on the support forums that would argue
otherwise (having tested 3G reception with alternative handsets when
experiencing difficulties with the Nexus One s 3G reception) so it ll be
interesting to see just how this fix goes down when it s (expected to be
offered) sometime next week – though a specific date has not yet
Of course, we ll be keeping out eyes on the support forums and will
report back on user feedback once the aforementioned update is available.
