The Galaxy Nexus has finally landed on Verizon, giving customers their first look at Android 4.0.
With the Verizon Wireless LTE rollout ongoing, users who aren't in a LTE market, or those who want to conserve battery life, can turn off the LTE capability of the Galaxy Nexus. The process only takes a few seconds, as long as you know where to look, and can be easily reversed should you change your mind down the road.
- Open Settings on your Galaxy Nexus. Under the Wireless & Networks section, find and tap on "More..."
- Tap on Mobile Networks at the bottom of the screen.
- Select Network Mode.
- By selecting CDMA only, your Galaxy Nexus will look for and use only a 3G connection. The LTE radio will essentially be turned off at this point. Once you have made your selection, press the back button at the bottom of your screen.
Once Verizon Wireless gets around to turning up the LTE coverage in your market, or if you decide saving some battery life isn't superimportant, you can follow these steps to turn LTE back on.
