It’s my 3rd week (or 4th? It doesn’t matter!) with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone.
Since few days it started to show pretty weird problem: suddenly it starts reporting that Airplane mode is on and I can’t make any call. If I press and hold power, the menu there says the airplane mode is on. If I click to switch it off, it grays out and nothing happens. At the same time, in Settings the Airplane checkbox is not checked. Pretty weird and very annoying problem, solvable only with reboot of the phone. The worst thing is that you can’t know when the problem will popup, so you may end up without coverage for hours, until you see that your phone is off again (already happened to me!). The issue is also discussed in Radio randomly goes off and [Q]Airplane mode keeps turning itself on and won’t turn off threads at XDA Developers forum.
Today I got sick and stopped uninstalling applications, but started the research. Pretty quick I came to the fact that the issue is also discussed in Radio randomly goes off and [Q]Airplane mode keeps turning itself on and won’t turn off threads at XDA Developers forum. Which led me to the thread at Google, which looks like acceptance of this as an official bug. The priority of the bug is “Medium”, which simply means that… well it means that it won’t be fixed anytime soon. I doubt Google guys are out of bug with high and critical severity, so they can fix that Medium one .
I’m pissed ! Let’s see what will happen, but I’m not very optimistic!
