Some people here in Australia have already received their Galaxy Nexus after ordering from the UK. However soon after release a bug was discovered that affected the volume on the phone when operating on the 900MHz 2G frequenncy.
After discovering the bug Samsung and Google promised a fix for the issue and in the meantime Samsung halted shipment of the Galaxy Nexus. Now the SamFirmware Twitter account has tweeted about the release of a volume fix for the GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus :
@SamFirmware : Samsung I9250 firmware I9250XXKK5 volume bug fix.
So if you`ve already received your Galaxy Nexus you should receive an OTA update some time soon. Suppliers like Handtec have been advising that the stock from Samsung will be shipping pre-flashed with the fix and stock should resume shipping out this week and everyone else who ordered either from one of the UK suppliers or the Australian supplier Mobicity should start receiving their phone soon.
