> In reply to Immi @ 2013-10-23 10:57 from KIJG - click to readThe Nexus S is not upgradeable to 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The closest you can get is 4.1.2, but I would strongly suggest that you not do that, for reasons listed in my personal review of this phone and things related to OS upgrades.

This was my first Android phone. At first, everything worked great. It was super quick (even for a single core processor), took nice pictures, and held all the apps and media that I wanted on there. BUT, if you decide to upgrade the OS to 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean), you're gonna have a bad time. This phone is slower than ANY (yes, ANY) phone I have ever used in my entire life since I did the OS upgrade. It freezes all the time doing even the most remedial tasks, and force closes apps all the time because of it's lack of capability of keeping up with itself. Also, the battery life is HORRID. Even in a strong Sprint service network (full-strength 3G or 4G), the battery lasts 3 hours on a full charge at BEST, with moderate use. If I use it heavily, it lasts less than 2 hours. I would NOT recommend this phone for anyone, unless you're just looking to make phone calls and send text messages, which it barely even does without freezing at some point. 0.5/5 stars.

Hey! I need youe help. I tried to share the network with my computer and when i activated wi-fi and enabled tethering and sharing my phone automatically powered off but it did not power on in a gud way coz it stopped by that colored cross sign which comes when a phone is powered on. It means that ma phone powers on but stop without finishing. Now i can not do any thing. I'm asking if there is a way to format it and restore. Thx

> In reply to MUSKAN @ 2013-09-19 18:09 from KIQS - click to readI have a similar problem. It appears to be a problem with this phone. In my case, the repairer told me its a software problem but not battery. He claimed he would have to flash it but was unfortunately not having the flashing software. Kindly let me know when you succeed in solving this problem

My phone is really slowing down. The touch screen for text and email is quite slower than it used to be. Also my photographs are slower to move along and it regularly slips out of mode when I am looking at them. This also happens when I look at my backed up photographs on Google +
