ICS 4.0.4 for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus has arrived


Last week, Android Central reported that Verizon was rolling out an update for their Galaxy Nexus LTE phones to Android 4.0.4. The phone launched with Android 4.0.3 when it debuted on December 15, 2011. I have been checking daily for the update with no sign of the update. It finally arrived sometime overnight and was there to greet me first thing this morning. I promptly updated to see what was new. I have not noticed many changes yet, but I have not had much time to test it. Here is a list of some of the reported changes:

Email, Messaging & Data

  • Email messages will display properly when the text size is set to large.
  • When sending a multimedia message to an Outlook email address, the file extension will send, allowing the recipient to successfully open an image.
  • Successfully deleted emails on the device will be deleted from the desktop as well.
  • Successfully send text messages without experiencing network connectivity issues.


  • When viewing a Calendar reminder or appointment, you will now be able to view the full notes associated with the appointment.
  • A down arrow has been added in the Calendar application that will expand the calendar message body, allowing you to view the entire message.

Device Features

  • Successfully turn on Wi-Fi using the Power Control widget.
  • Updates have been made to prevent the display from freezing or becoming unresponsive.
  • Complete calls without experiencing choppy audio, clicking noises and one-way audio noises.
  • Successfully access Voicemail and other automated systems without error.

Other enhancements have been rumored as well, including better voice reception, but nothing has been made official by Google or Verizon. I'll play around with the phone over the next few days and report any interesting new features or performance improvements.
