Verizon Is Messing Up a Nexus (Again)

Verizon Is Messing Up a Nexus (Again)

Verizon. Haven’t you learned your lesson? The Galaxy Nexus was completely messed up by you. You would think that when Google was gracious enough to let people use their new tablet on your network, you would have done everything in your power to make sure it worked. You didn’t. Verizon has been denying LTE Nexus 7 users access to new data lines on their network. When a Verizon representative was reached out to for comment, they had this to say:

“This is not yet a device that is Verizon 4G LTE certified. We’ll let folks know when its certified.”


“Yes, we do expect it to get certified. I don’t have a timeframe as I’m still looking into all this but we’ll let people know.”


That implies that Verizon is actively testing the Nexus 7 LTE and readying it for new Verizon customers to use. That would make the Nexus 7 LTE the first unlocked, non-Verizon device approved for use on the carrier’s network. The main problem is that Verizon has no requirement, or incentive, to make this happen. This reminds me of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. Seriously, you think they would have learned from that.
