Verizon Wireless has confirmed, through posts on Verizon's @VZWSupport Twitter account, that its LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is facing signal strength problems and has promised to fix them with a software update.

One of the tweets said: We do not have an ETA for the fix on this yet, but I do know we are engaged in this issue and it's heavily being looked at.

According to users' complaints, the phones displayed, on average, a maximum of two bars of signal strength which, very occasionally, went up to three. In addition, there were also complaints over the relatively slow LTE data speed.

Another tweet said: A fix for this issue is under review & will be included in the first post launch maintenance release SW for this device.

Verizon made the Samsung Galaxy Nexus available for sale last Thursday, pricing at it $300. The Galaxy Nexus, which is the first phone to run Android's 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, has been getting excellent reviews. Its features include a 4.65-inch HD display screen with edge-to-edge 720p resolution and a dual-core 1.2GHz processor with 1GB of RAM. In addition it has a 5 megapixel camera that can shoot video at 1080p.
