I'm in Rocky Mount and it's really intermittent for me. I went a couple of weeks recently without any problems - even making a few lengthy phone calls - and then it happened in rapid succession over the last few days. It's strange. I thought it had something to do with the tower I was connected to because I live about two miles from work, and even less than that as the crow flies. That means I make 98% of my phone calls while connected to the same tower. But I was in Raleigh a month ago which is a strong 4G market and I had it happen then, so that shoots that theory in the foot.

If the 10-day rollout thing is true, I'll stop spamming the "Check now" button. The update will get here when it gets here. I will, however, call Verizon tech support and gently remind them they WILL be putting me into a different device should this update not fix the one-way audio issue for me.

2 Points:
1) LTE has nothing to do with voice.
2) Virginia may have been built out with the same equipment as your local area, which is why you have issues in both areas. We don't know where Verizon installed what. It is likely a patchwork of different vendors across the country. It is unlikely that they would mix two vendors in one city, there would be a clean cutoff between providers.

In short, you have given us a little information, but not nearly enough to decide the issue one way or another.

There's usually a generic download for Nexus devices in additon to one targeted at people with the main OS version, like ICL-53F. These capture people on leaked ROM's and people who activate new phones that still have 4.0.1 on them.

What will your phone do when it's updating?

Last night I woke up to my phone stuck on the screen that is shows when you first turn the phone on. I left it for a few minutes, then took the battery out and powered the phone back on. I still have 4.0.2. Hopefully it was not updating when I removed the battery.

Did you get the notification on your phone telling you that you had a system update available?

Yeah, that was the case on the Nexus One but, to date, I have yet to see any generic updates (i.e., an update that will update any build number to the current one) -- all of them have been specific, i.e., IMM76K-from-ICL53F, so I would expect a specific IMM76K-from-IMM30B update file.

No message, just the colorful spinning squares that happens when you boot up the phone. Left it for several minutes before removing the battery (buttons did nothing).

That means your phone probably randomly rebooted itself in the middle of the night. You have nothing to worry about regarding the update. The update doesn't install automatically. You will get the notification on your phone, then you have to tell it to install.

Good point; forgot that 4G/LTE is data only and has nothing to do with voice calls. Thanks.

I was under the impression that LTE was voice and data. But after reading this post I did a little research only to find out that is has not rolled out that way yet (looks to be 2013). No wonder LTE phones use so much battery, they run two radios simultaneously. I can't believe I didn't figure this out sooner!
