Nexus S ICS 4.0.4 OTA update

Has anyone on Fido got the OTA update? Has it started rolling out yet? Seems like Bell, Telus, Rogers and Wind are getting theirs. What's the hold up Fido? Aren't you the same network as Rogers?

Re: Nexus S ICS 4.0.4 OTA update

I downloaded this update and now my phone is pretty much useless for anything except dialing out!  When it installed and rebooted itself, all I'm left with on the screen is the phone's dial pad. None of the menu touch buttons at the bottom of the screen work,  so I can't exit the dialpad. Also, I can't 'pull down' the icons from the top, like before, to change to another screen. Any suggested fixes, asap, would be greatly appreciated....thanks!

Got it to work by going to https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instagram.android in the Google Chrome Beta browser and signing in and clicking install. If I open in Google Play Store it says, "Your device is not compatible with this version."

I also downloaded the installation file from Google.

 

The install went well and i am now a satisfied ICS user.. I have a Fido Nexus S... By the way the OS is WAY faster than Gingerbread... I love it

Re: Nexus S ICS 4.0.4 OTA update

Update sucks! -battery that is. I was getting 18 hours on a battery on a normal work day. Now I get 6 hours. I've disabled Google+, deleted my corporate email account (to see if that helps but I can't live without it). I'm wasting a lot of time trying to figure this out. Also, my phone's ear speaker does not work at all now.

 

Don't upgrade if you are satisfied with you're phone as it is.

Hey gw2,

 

Sorry we missed your post.

 

Were you able to get this fixed? It sounds like your phone was stuck in Emergency mode. 

 

Let us know!
