Shortly after the Galaxy Nexus finally launched on Sprint, users started having difficulties connecting the device to Sprint's network. Sprint quickly said that a fix was forthcoming, and now it appears the company has made good on its word. The Galaxy Nexus will receive a software update over the next day or two to fix the difficulties connecting to Sprint's network; there's also some non-specific Google Wallet updates contained in the update. Of course, users will need to be connected to Wi-Fi so you can download this update when it gets pushed out; users can also check for the update manually in the phone's setting menu. While this was a pretty severe bug for Sprint to launch its flagship LTE phone with, we're glad to see the carrier quickly attempt to correct the issue — and we hope this update doesn't bring any other issues along with it.
