Just wondering if anyone has heard any more on this?
Same problem as everyone else. Got another phone from google rma . Ran both phones simultaneously and both had same problems tried every combination of of 2g 3G 4g without success. Unable to regularly make receive call or send text messages plus keep getting annoying emergency calls only screen. Tried factory resets, updating software, everything recommended on line bar rooting as is still within warranty.
At one point I had 2x nexus 5 and my old galaxy s3 running all on Vodafone uk. Results were nexus time without signal 30-40% galaxy s3 time no signal 4-10%. Have screen grabs as evidence and took readings for a week trying to solve issue without success. Time to send nexus back and get a phone which works without resetting or airplane mode switch. Losing business as result of missing calls & tired of carrying two phones around with me - Vodafone contract and payg (nexus diverting to s3 when no signal) The most annoying thing is having two bars of signal showing and still being unable to make calls. See my youtube videos search nexus 5 connection issues/problems.
REALLY REALLY WANTED THIS PHONE TO WORK as upgraded router for ac wifi, phone cases & screen protectors thankfully was able to send back wireless charger. Hope google will admit problem or produce a fix or I fear my credit card company will be fighting for my money back for a product which is not fit for purpose.
Ultimately I think this phone is fine if you live in a city, if you are on the fringe of cell reception it simply refuses to reconnect without user intervention, however what has to be remembered is I never had this problem before with HTC desire or galaxy s3.
