I am using an Android device on 2degrees right now and noticed it is getting native IPv6.

I also noticed the IP address tend to change between v6 and v4 quite frequently - I know because my account is set to logout on IP address change.

Perhaps not such good inter-cell handover for ipv6?

edit: that's cool though, +1 2D.. lead the way!

Woah, that's cool if true! My HTC DZ doesn't have baseband support for IPv6 over 3G (That I know of).
What phone is this? (Hopefully the Nexus 4 does have support for v6 over 3G/GSM)

I am using the LG One Net with Snapper.

Interesting it switches between only one IPv4 and one IPv6 as if something wrong in the stack not the connection. Some pages show our green logo while others don't.

Nope, cancel that. I am now inclined to believe it's Opera Mobile proxy. Turn off  Opera Turbo and it's always IPv4. Using stock browser I always get an IPv4 address.

Opera Mobile with Opera Turbo on seems to give me an IPv4 address when doing POST and an IPv6 address when doing GET.



Sorry folks, I think it's a false alarm.

Yep, I only see IPv6 on my Galaxy Nexus if I'm using my wifi (Snap native IPv6). Turn off wifi and I'm back to v4 only.

Even on wifi, http://www.apnic.net shows my v4 address, but http://ipv6.internode.on.net shows v6

% Information related to '2001:4c28::/32'

inet6num: 2001:4c28::/32
netname: NO-OPERA-20101014

Seems like it's Opera to me.

Most likely Happy Eyeballs in effect there.

Hmmm. Read my reply again folks, I had already established it's Opera.
