Google on the process of rolling out Samsung Galaxy Nexus volume bug fix

Good news. Google is currently rolling out the official Samsung Galaxy Nexus volume bug fix. The solution to the issue will roll out to owners of the smartphone by next week.

Speaking to CNET, the search giant said, “We’re currently rolling out a fix for the volume issue, which will reach everyone in the coming week.”

The volume bug lowers the volume of the handset, which renders voice calls useless. It also affects ringtones and music.

Not all owners are plagued with this problem. Only Vodafone and O2 subscribers are affected, since these network operators make use of the 2G 900MHz frequency. If you’re on Three, T-Mobile, or Orange, you have nothing to worry about.

Recently an unofficial fix surfaced. However, it required users to unlock the Nexus’ bootloader, which voids the warranty of the phone. Since Google will be rolling out the fix by next week, you might want to wait just a little bit longer rather than going through the complicated procedure offered by the unofficial fix, which voids the phone’s warranty. If you understand the risks and opt for the unofficial fix, go over to MoDaCo and follow their instructions.

Other handsets that made it to the headlines have their own bugs as well. The iPhone 4S and the Nokia Lumia 800 have battery issues. The Samsung Galaxy S2 on Vodafone is suffering from a GPS bug.

Can’t wait to get the official volume bug fix for your Samsung Galaxy Nexus, or are you afraid the update will cause more problems like the iOS 5.0.1 did for the iPhone 4S? give us your thoughts.
