Ahh, I did this once too. Open the photo in Paint. Then click "resize." In the pop-up window, click "pixels" and then set to the maximum allowed dimension. Save it and then try to upload that one.

EDIT: "Shot and a beam" that sounds naughty (like something BBs would say)

Ya know, if I didn't have my company party tomorrow I would drive the 2 hours to come down there.
And a shot and a beam is fairly tame. Now a shot and a bump on the other hand.....

So I've been scratching my head and trying to figure out why I came out better at the cash register than I expected when I picked up my Nexus this morning. I'm not complaining, though.

I called yesterday and talked to a CSR to confirm my upgrade eligibility, and to see if there was any chance of moving my $30 loyalty discount up. The CSR looked at my account and told me I was indeed eligible for early upgrade, with a $20 upgrade fee, but the loyalty discount could not be moved up. So I was expecting to pay about $320 plus tax.

But at the store this morning, my total was $286. I didn't ask questions at the time, but after I got home I looked at the receipt. It includes the $20 upgrade fee, but it shows the price of the Nexus as $249. Huh?

I do have a corporate discount, but I'm pretty sure it only applies to my service and not to phone purchases. And the receipt says nothing about a discount. Apparently I just got the phone at $50 off, for reasons unknown.

Well, like I said, I'm not complaining.

All these hands on/first impression videos popping up are making me excited. Really jealous of those who live near corporate stores. Hurry up FedEx!

See #479 a few posts back.

Now we know what 'soft launch' really means, which is "We haven't really prepared or planned anything, but we have a few container loads of this product so lets let 'em sell it and see what happens."

FWIW, I was waiting an extra long time while my GNex was activated, then re-activated, then re-activated with a new SIM.......
There were calls every few minutes asking about iPhone4S and iPhone5. CSR said they get at least that rate of these calls every day. Marketing drives demand, I guess. What a concept
i guess my corporate store was the exception to the rule then. the entire wall behind where the demo gnex was had a big sign up advertising it(probably in the area of 8ftx10ft), and they had a promo sign on the front of the store n one of the windows. they also had 60 for release today

My store didn't even have a dummy phone. I bought it without a second of test drive.

And yet my store had about 25 people waiting for the doors to open. All for a phone that has had no advertising to speak of, and essentially no advance notice. The employees told me it was a bigger turnout than they had for the iPhone launch.

Once they start marketing this thing, they may end up with a real hit on their hands. Whether they want it or not.

So....Miss BabyBlues...

Did you find anything interesting on that website I gave you? I can blow my whole paycheck there

Also can anyone direct me to the instructions for removing the Google search bar? I remember it being discussed in the Pre-release thread somewhere but I dont know if anyone actually figured it out!

Sorry to repost this...but my battery just wore out and I think it's because it is running 4G and I haven't a clue how to turn it off. I put WIFI on...thought that automatically turns off 4G...

also thanks to BB I downloaded FriendCaster for Facebook...but wondering if that's also using a lot of battery.

HELP PLEASE?!

You did great, except the new Paint version that I have doesn't resize in pixels... just %'s. I set it to 35% and it fits the forum! THANK YOU!

BTW here's my screenshot:

Screenshot Nexus 2011-12-15Small.jpg

Yayyy it fits now!

Wifi should take over. The battery life will be terrible for the first day or so. Let it die and recharge fully two to three times. It takes a few days for a new phone and battery to get it together. If you are wondering, you can always look at battery stats in the settings menu. I think mine showed data on the whole time. Could be an issue that will require an update. My Nexinator is sleeping right now so I can't verify that.

If you're on FB, make sure you "like" them. Also create an account, because they send out discount codes all the time.

NEVER NEVER PAY FULL PRICE!!!!

I just got 5 pair from that site for $119. With shipping.

Enjoy that.

I have had a pretty stinky day. I woke up in a great mood! One of my classes would have their Christmas program, then out to lunch with my staff for our Christmas party, and while I was busy doing all that, my hubby would be driving to the nearest VZ store to buy me a Nexus! Well, it didn't turn out so well! I had called and gotten the Midwest discount applied, called to verify, called the store to make sure it was on the acct. Thought everything was ready to go...not so much. He got there and the discount was not on my acct. Called headquarters, yep, it's there, but I don't really qualify, so I can't have it. Back and forth until a corporate big wig finally said, fine, you can have the discount, but not at the store. We will send you a phone. You will receive it TUESDAY! I am not a happy camper. I know that a few days is not a lot to wait in order to save $100, but still! Just cranky...could be the lack of sleep from too much forum reading!
Enjoy your babies...I hope Fed Ex moves fast and I get it early!

phewww..I feel better now....It went down to 18% so it's charging now. Thanks!

PM me with the issue. I went through it today. It was my first time using ADB since my Eris. Pucker factor was about "11" but it worked out and I am a better person for it.

Battery is dead on the Nexus right now so I got nothing going on but Criminal Minds reruns.

Dead battery= flurry of Woodstorm posts.

i think im going to wait to unlock the bootloader until some good roms come... mainly i will be looking for battery increase(lower cpu speed while idle, etc), tether, ability to use the screen space where the search bar was before i removed it, and a 4g toggle

Hey everyone! I had a fantastic Nexmas. Woke up early and got my Nexus, spent the day on here with you all and achieving brief fame via my photo on Phandroid and other blogs, then went out with the girlfriend for a fancy dinner and seeing the Radio City Christmas Spectacular! Those Rockettes really know how to move.

I'm bushed, haha. Good night all!

EDIT: Oh, also, finally got an email from Verizon about the Nexus at around 6 PM. Looked at it on my Nexus, laughed so hard I got a few tears in my eyes, then deleted it.

search bar hack and a Kernel would do me fine. Also thinking this thing may need the radio reworked. Signal strength seems to be subpar.

No. No apps, no hacks, and no root. It "just worked". Right outta the box.

This is probably a stupid question, but how can you upload an image to Google+ without making a post? I have instant upload enabled and that works awesome with the camera, but I'd like to get screenshots sent to that private folder as well and I can't figure out how.
