Checked again when I got to work and it left Memphis at 1am and got here at 4am. Sigh of relief!
All FedEx shipments go through Memphis first. At least they used to back in the day.

That's the same dock I want, for work. I tend to listen to music all day, so having a dock is helpful. Down the line I may get one for the house too.

Definitely want a car dock as well, eventually.

Well I got SwiftKey X to finally work. I realized I had to update it and I always kept refusing it. I updated it, and now it's perfect!

I just wish that I could use the stock voice-to-text tool with SwiftKey. Guess I can't have my cake and eat it too.

Hope someone can help me....
I am eligible to upgrade at a discounted price (according to vzw website), however...this ligibility doesn't show up on best buy's site, or Amazon's, or LetsTalk.
I've tried to get the 3g-4g $100 credit....but I think enough of 'us' tried that they've clamped down (all are asking for the fax of the promotion from my 'friend'.)
I'm going to (HAVE TO! )get the Nexus ASAP....I'm just wanting to knock the price down as low as I can without waiting another month for prices to drop.
My poor DINC is completely undependable as of late....the alarm never works anymore (THAT was an awesome Cannonball Run to the bus stop at 6am this morning! ugh!)
I'd appreciate any guidance!

Anyone else having issues connecting property to your hosted exchange on Mailstreet. Only getting 2-3 days worth of emails, but not the last weeks. Not sure if it's Active Sync. First time for that for me.

I'm "on call" at nights. Phone has to ring, emails, and SMS don't want a ring. Any recommendations on a program to turn off sound for SMS and emails, but leave it on for phone calls in case the hotline calls?

Thanks in advance.

Right, no pins, but it doesnt look like the one on the Samsung site uses the pins either. It just has holes cut out of the top to access the charging port and headphone jack. When will docks using the pins be coming out? Might have to get one for home.

I can't wait to be running Google music through my speakers, using nav and charging all at the same time - conveniently on my dashboard.

I like "timeriffic" - You can set it up to turn on/off individual ringers/vibrations at whatever time you want.

There are two I can suggest:
Tasker: it is not for the light of heart. You can get pretty deep with automating your phone. My favorite is having my phone alert me if it is in a certain time in a certain area at the time of day that I need to be picking up my daughter. It rings at 3:00 if I'm at work, and 3:50 if I'm at home, and won't ring if I'm within .5 miles from her school.
Locale: I find it to be way easier to set up, but less options.

I use them both. I use locale so that at night, only certain numbers can ring through (kids, mom, husband).

Video I saw before had the pins in the Samsung one, and jacks on the side of the mount for charge/headphones. Maybe that's only the GSM version?

EDIT: This looks like it might have the video, can't see while I'm at work, but the picture definitely shows the jacks on the mount itself.

Will do, whenever I get home. The box is there, I'm not. I'd love to use the pins...but is that coming out? May have to return this dock...

I guess you're right, I don't see any of the ports on that one on samsung's site.

I really want the ones with pins and audio too. I'm not sure positive they are making one for the i515

The other biggest thing is obviously ICS. Not only are you getting ICS here before you're gonna get an official port (probably several months away), but the GNex is also going to get the NEXT operating system relatively quickly or at least previous Nexus phones have received quick updates.

Once I got everything set up and changed the colors depending on the notification it made the notification light infinitely more useful.

For those interested in the guts of our new device. Apparently some significant differences from the GSM version!

For those interested in the guts of our new device. Apparently some significant differences from the GSM version!
So...um...what are the differences? I don't know enough about component parts to figure it out.

For the longest time I could not understand why people kept saying "FTW!" in the rumors thread about things that they seemed to be happy about... I was always confused by the seemingly out of context expression and often baffled why someone didn't get called out for using such a strong vulgar expression even if it was just an acronym. Then I googled it and found out that acronym does not mean what I think it means (anymore)...doh *facepalm*

You're not alone, I thought the same thing - especially after watching ECW in it's heyday and seeing Taz as the FTW champion.

I had the same problem. I just simply asked in the Epic Thread, and it was answered. I just wish BB had never told me what ATM stood for.

Now I can't drive by a bank without grimacing.

Got mine yesterday at 9:30, the store wasn't supposed to open until 10. I got there and they were already open, or kind of, there was a guy at the door that asked what I needed, I siad the Nexus, he said come on in. I was number three in the store to get the Nexus.. awesome.. BTW, there was about ten people waiting to get the Nexus when I left.

One thing that sucks is I don't get 4G in my office... ugh..

So far one of my problems so far is transfering pictures and movies to the Nexus. But I saw a thread about it so I'll check it out.

But one thing I was looking for that maybe one of you know is on my D3 there was a way to turn of syncing in between certain times of the day. I would like to kill syncing at night. Do you guys know of an app that will do that?

What case did you get? I'm considering the Otterbox case sold on VZW but the Barely There case looks good too.

People are saying keep awake might be Light Flow issues.

Gonna disable it tomorrow to see what kind of battery life I get and then compare.

This is the one I ordered -- not even using a case though.

Hahaha! I didn't need to know that one.

What should have happened instead of clicking the show button during the time that conversation was going on ----> /me sticks fingers in ears and closes eyes while shouting LALALALALA! FTW!

That's awesome! I still say you should see the movie though - So much funnier when you get the full conversation.

Thanks in advance.
There are a bunch of free profile apps that let you customize notifications for specific locales. I use "Profiles" by Egg n Stone developer. Worked great on my DX. Not sure if it will work on ICS.

Did anybody NOT root? I haven't - I don't see the point for me, since it's already vanilla android with just 2 VZW apps that are already out of sight, out of mind. I only rooted my Eris to see what it was like and because I was bored with it.

I just feel like I'm alone in the non-rooting camp. Anyone else here? We've got plenty of beer!

This article says that there are 4 different docks. Is it possible that they just haven't gotten them in yet? Or do they just have the one for Verizon?

I didn't root or anything. This is my first smart phone so I don't see a need right now. Plus I don't really understand what it actually does and everything so I'm just enjoying the phone as is.
