Google Wallet/Checkout

I went to the Google Wallet website to see which websites accepted the feature. Among them were and However, when I clicked on the Google Checkout button, it says that my current method of payment is invalid. Why is this when I have $50 worth of credit in my Google Wallet? Anyone having this issue or am I just doing something wrong? Am I not actually able to use this online?

Won't sync all my FaceBook contacts & pix like I easily did w/ my DroidX

Been reading how the Galaxy Nexus won't simply sync up with all my FB contacts like my any Moto Droid will easily do. One forum recommended I get the app HaxSync. (I think I have to also 1st install the official FB app). Any info/input/advice regarding if this is the only (or the best) way to get all my FB contacts (with their contact pix) on the Galaxy Nexus I'm about to get. Is there any reason to get the Droid Razor instead... Still wanting the G.Nexus at this point.

Rezound > Nexus

i mean...look at the specs. rezound has better front and back camera, better processor and will be in ice cream sandwich soon enough. also samsung's super bright screens have usually resulted in poor battery life. i've seen some crazy symbian phones from asia that can do far more than ay iphone or droid. i wouldn't mind seeing one of those on VZW LTE.

Nexus in Europe

I took my Nexus LTE to China and I received coverage there, text and data, however didn't try calling. I called Verizon and they said yes that the Nexus LTE is classified as a global device and that I can use it internationally. So has anyone tried this phone in Europe? I had it working in China.

Currently I have my personal Nexus and simple global flip phone from my company, and I am hoping that I can dump my flip phone and use this everywhere.

Call audio dropping issue?

At random times, it's like my phone mutes itself, but the mute button hasn't been activated. My wife said that her Galaxy Nexus has done it also. I'm just wondering if others have had this problem.

More details:

- I can hear caller on other end, but they can't hear me.
-Has happened as early as 2.5 minutes into a call, and as late as 7 minutes
- Have always had at least 2 bars of service at time of issue
- Mute button is off

call audio

the call audio is very choppy i keep getting a clicking noise when on a call .. the signal is weak ( my iphone had a good signal) overall the device is great if google/verizon fix the signal and call audio... i would be a very happy camper....

the OS shouldn't really matter

if i had verizon the only reason i would consider this phone would be the screen quality, and that its not filled up with vzw bloatware.

the os does not make the phone, alot of the high end androids will have ics soon

I wish I could edit my review. My signal went from acceptable to pathetic. Sunday I completely lost signal when 3 other people with my with Verizon had 3-4 bars and my 3G disconnected for about 30 minutes. Had to do a battery pull and it still wasn't too stable afterwords. Also, in the music app when I adjusted the equalizer the phone would lock up completely and I would have to do a battery pull (this happened 3 times). I really wanted to love this phone. But the signal issue alone was enough to return it. I exchanged it for the Rezound which has so far been good. I will wait atleast a full week to post a review on it.

P.S. Verizon has said they are aware of the signal issue and are adjusted the software to "match other Verizon phones". ...

Saw The Phone Today...VERY Disappointed

The screen is beautiful. Now to the rest.

Everyone talks about it. I was expecting features similar to my Samsung Fascinate. Previous Samsung smartphone cameras had leading features. This camera has much less configurability that any other Samsung camera including only 5 scenes, no focus choice, no exposure choice, no ISO choice, no "anti-shake", no image adjustments.

They make it easier to upload an image, but what difference does it make if the image has problems? My test exposures were ok; many online are awful.

Note, Samsung smartphones have had panoramic pictures for some time already.

Screen Real Estate
It is very cute to have the control button rotate with the screen. However, they are taking 150 or so of those ...

Just letting everyone know...

There is an Google Wallet .apk available now. You can download it right to the phone and install as 3rd party app. Very Happy

phone reviews

It is almost laughable when I read the reviews of the Galaxy Nexus and see reviews that give the phone low ratings for things that were listed in the specs for the phone before they got it (no memory card, 5mp camera etc.) Review a phone for how good or bad it is, not that you think it should be.
