Just to let you know and to pass on to others, Verizon has the Device Payment Plan. You can keep unlimited and pay off the phone over 12 months.

Does this work for ANY phone? Darling Bride wants a Moto X all of a sudden. Monthly paydown while keeping unlimited would be PERFECT

Thanks! I may look into that although I'm about to lose my 15% discount from my old job so I need to see if keeping unlimited is worth the cost or if something else will be cheaper

Price of phone or tablet has to be at least $349 and devices cannot total more than $1000.

Just talked to a CSR online and she said it cannot be done online. Only certain stores would offer it :/

EDIT: Hey Teener, welcome to the Forums!

You might want to ask that question in the Thunderbolt's "All Things Root" section where more experienced eyes can see the issue. If you like, we can move your post for you so you don't have to repeat it.

Correct. Not online. But I was told any corporate store will do it.

Don't let them tell you that you will loose unlimited. Mine tried to tell me no so I called Verizon had them tell the store Rep to do it.

Hoo boy... another threat of losing it. I may just pay retail and be done with it. I don't need to throw a fit for the privilege of giving them money.

Pretty much confirms what has been out for a while.

Only thing unknown is price, and will Google botch another product launch. And will Google and Verizon ever play nice again.

But while waiting for another Verizon Nexus, the G2 looks to be similar but slightly better hardware than the Nexus 5. But doesn't have the stock software. Life is all compromises.

Good morning everyone - "happy" Monday. Back to work.

Had a nice weekend - went to Brooklyn Brewery with my future brother in law this weekend, drank a lot of beers and then just relaxed and did some wedding stuff on Sunday. Started registering at Bed Bath & Beyond - boy is that scanner fun and addicting.

Is every single KitKat bar code a winner? Or did lightning just strike twice for me?

Since a person can only win one prize, I made a login with the Darling Bride's information. Then I entered the SECOND code (First was a $5 win for me) and IT WON TOO! Another 5 bucks!

Not bad, $10 for 2 KitKat bars. Now I have 8 more bars (and codes) that I can't do a thing with. With my luck there are 3 Nexus 7s among them and we can't win anymore

Wedding stuff is... well, an adventure, Stigy

Each First Prize winner will receive one (1) $5.00 promotional credit for Google Play™. ARV: $5.00 each. Twenty Thousand (20,000) Second Prizes. Each Second Prize winner will receive one (1) coupon good for a KIT KATŪ Minis Product Sample. ARV: $3.79 each."

Verizon just hit my card for the full retail price of the Note 3! I've never been so happy to spend that much money in my life! Come on, baby, jump into my waiting hands!

I should have scrilled up on that a bit. I think that storm line runs from Virginia Beach to roughly Bangor, ME, so that's Bread and BB too. Stay safe everyone.

Has it hit yet?

Trying to figure out which weather service is most reliable, and Pup, you look like the perfect test candidate. Weather Bug shows a big one headed your way. But Weather Channel/Weather.com shows you completely in the clear. So does Weather Bomb. One of 'em is wrong, right?

Think I've gone stupid... did a 5k race two weekends ago, a 10 mile race this last Saturday night and it looks like I'll be doing a half marathon in November.

What am I thinking!?!

In Pittsburgh all day today. That was the coldest baseball game I have ever been to! Luckily there was no rain. The battery on G2 did a great job, heavily used!

Here's some pics..

It's pretty unreal, isn't it.

Decided to do an endurance test over the weekend. Unplugged Sat morning. Left WiFi on, Bluetooth, GPS, Widgets, Google Now updating cards, and normal use. Phone, texts, games and some maps. Granted I didn't leave the screen on for hours, etc. Just wanted to see how long it would go under my normal use.

Here's the result. Its Monday night and ready to plug in. Over 60 hours with some left. Could well be more if I actually tried to save some battery. Screen on time was almost 4 hours. That's 3 full days of use.

3 more hours on 5% battery? That's pretty good.

Seems the storm has passed and left us with lovely cool weather to wake up to.

They base that estimate remaining on your prior 3 hours of use. You can see on the chart I used it a bit more in the final hour. I bet that 5% would have lasted overnight, so might have been able to stretch it out to 70 hours, but then I'd wake up to a dead phone. However, with USB3 charging, only takes little over an hour to full charge.

Point is, under normal (for me) use, this thing will last. I usually had no issue going 14+ hours on the GNex, but she was dead by that time. And I had Google Now shut off because that seemed to kill things faster. And if I actually tasked it using maps, games or movies, it would kill it much faster.

Its just reassuring that for a normal day, you can hit the G2 pretty hard knowing that you'll have some battery left at the end of the day. I'm curious to see if the Snapdragon 800 equipped Note 3 lasts just as long.

Morning folks! Looks like some pretty good battery life on the G2 there. I'm still getting plenty on my Moto X. The thing that kills mine is the game I play. I routinely hit 4 hours of screen on time without plugging in. Standby is excellent on it as well. I noticed it beeped at me for 14% warning while driving and I didn't use it the rest of the way except for a couple of quick glances... got home 3 hours later with 10% left. Got some pics this weekend I'll try to share. Got my camera fix update last week.

Oh, I decided to see if I could spot the international space station last night using an ISS Tracker app. Counted down to the exact time and showed me the exact direction to be looking. Even gave me an elevation guide which was like a little bubble level on the phone that gave me a line of sight. Worked like a charm, never realized the ISS was so visible.

Good morning all - happy Tuesday.

Glad to see everyone is loving their new phones and that the Note 3 is starting to be sent to its anxious buyers.

Devices have really come along way since our precious GNex, huh?

Think I'm gonna hold out until the Note 3 hits the stores and compare them side by side. Not holding my breath nor needing to upgrade at this time, so no worries.

Jmar I never thought I'd see the day.
Although, I briefly thought of asking if any of my friends in the area had one of those to use during my Avon Walk. Only because I figured the battery would last longer. Then I realized, after helping one of the customers at work, that I'd rather not have a phone than use one for any length of time. I'm just going to do my best to make my 3 batteries last.

It really is a boring UI experience. The camera is fantastic, however. The apps are mishmash right now cos most developers have not updated their apps to iOS 7, so the majority of apps look like iOS 6...ugly.

I can't wait for the Nexus 5. It will be my daily driver with the iPhone 5 as a backup and way to have full compatibility with the wife's new 64GB iPhone 5!

Missing my Nexus 4 very much!

Pizza dough is one of those that I rarely even measure ingredients.
Really the only couple pointers I have is: use AP flour, good flour like King Arthur and after the dough is fully proofed, refrigerate it for at least 6 hours or overnight. It helps develop flavor and makes it easier to stretch.

Does anyone think The Chief is glued to his front porch waiting for the UPS truck to show up?
