Yes. It doesn't have mass USB storage mode, but it works easily on a Windows based computer for drag and drop. Other OS's will require a little more support to get it working right.

And yet they've all supposedly received "training" on it. Maybe that's all the mgr's feel the csrs need to know...

I understand exactly what you were attempting to relay. But it still means nothing.

AD's have a different computer system and have different rules. They can allocate handsets that don't even exist based on estimates. Them having it in thier system means they are getting ready, not that it has any basis in actual inventory allotment.

Think of this as similar to the Best Buy ad. Just because the ad was created in anticipation of a release, doesn't mean Best Buy had the authorization to run that ad. See the similarity?

I don't know, nothing would surprise me with Verizon at this point. The Droid Charge just started going on sale one day. Yes, the Charge was officially announced and given a release time. But that was delayed for some time and they had the devices in store. Then one friday they silently went on sale..

If only the original launch event had occurred... The one in the US and not in HK. Then Verizon would have had to show up and declare a date for availability.

OT:
Does anyone know where they will announce the winners of the phandroid holidroid contests?

Why do you think that.

Couldn't they have shown up and declared availability "this year", excactly the same as the later announcement?

I still find it suspect that final specifications for the LTE model weren't given at the HK event for the GSM unit. My only conclusion is that it wasn't fully designed and manufactured yet. In my mind, this delay was partially attributed to that.

Will it be 12.00 am eastern or 3.00 am because of the west coast? hmm.

Speaking of VZW stores. Does anyone have a corporate store that has 2 "Door Monitors" that jump on you the second you walk in and ask you what you need?

It's freaking annoying!

And the guy that is always there(at my store) is this tall skinny guy in his late 50's w/ a beard and glasses. He looks like the guy that is always sitting at the table next to you in a bar or restaurant that thinks he is so intellectual and witty, that everyone needs to hear and admire his stories.

I usually just walk by him and he starts chasing me down as I ignore him.

Yeah, VERY annoying I agree. But I simply say "No thanks, just browsing". Then after I've looked around, I just ask a nearby (unoccupied) sales guy "hey, any idea when the nexus is coming?". Though I usually don't stay long enough to get hounded.

He'd probably rather not "chase" you. Just doing his job.

Yeah, mine has the same thing. The sign-up screen and then 2 people there to insta-harass you once you walk in.

I went in to try out the Rezound and the RAZR and, even though I told them I don't need help, they hounded me and continued to try to tell me all about the phones. I probably could have told them more about them than what they could have told me...

And the guy that is always there(at my store) is this tall skinny guy in his late 50's w/ a beard and glasses. He looks like the guy that is always sitting at the table next to you in a bar or restaurant that thinks he is so intellectual and witty, that everyone needs to hear and admire his stories.

I usually just walk by him and he starts chasing me down as I ignore him.
While it may be annoying, they are people who are trying to do thier jobs. Just trying to make some money for thier family, etc. Try to be a little more compassionate and understand that.

A simple "No Thanks" is all it usually takes. After that, if the pestering continues, then take the gloves off. But who knows, I've met some of the most interesting people just by learning to slow down in life and appreciate the small things. This one greeter at Wal-Mart happened to be a Korean War vet who *did* have the most interesting stories.

Just sayin treat everyone with a little respect.

Ahhh this question again! Well..back when I first joined I posted a chat I had with a CSR online. Unknown to me, Steven had posted a rule earlier in the thread about not doing that. When he told me not to, I disagreed with him and I was put on probation.

If it does happen, what advantage does not putting out a simple press release give them. I can't believe things are so flexible that they don't make the decision till the day of.
I think it's just a business decision that VZ sees in its best interests. VZ's business decisions just happen to collide with our general impatience.

Drexel Dragon did PM me with the location. It isn't too far, but too far for tonight. Store is only open to 9:00, and it's almost 8 and I have to give the kids a bath. Hopefully his mom will snap a pic.

However, I will be in the area tomorrow, and if no new info is available, I'll be sure to stop by.

That will NOT be discussed in a thread. Feel free to PM anyone and ask them off line, but not appropriate for open discussion.

It has nothing to do with how good/bad/big/minor the infraction was. We all make mistakes. I've been given infractions on other sites before as well, learned my lesson, and moved on.

Of course he "hunts" everyone down lol. If he was only chasing you then I could sympathize. The nerd part really has nothing to do with it, although it is a cute little anecdote. It probably is obvious people don't want to be hounded. It's obvious to you, obvious to him. The only problem is, it's not obvious to verizon. Anyways, wasn't trying to cast a shadow on anyone, just offering a different perspective. Sorry if there was any confusion

Hmmmmmm. Could you clarify what exactly we're not supposed to do? We post all sorts of conversations w/manufacturer and carrier insiders all the time (including Steven's source!), so I don't understand what the issue is.

No joke. I live within a 5 mile radius from 12 Verizon corp stores. I guess I'm lucky, especially when I hear about those who's local store is an hour away.

However, the store that Drexel Dragon mentioned is more like 40 minutes. And I'm alone with the kids right now, so no can do. 5 min wouldn't be a problem to throw the kiddies in the car and take a look. But being out another hour and half plus store time isn't going to happen tonight.

Sorry
