Didn't notice that, just checked and you're right. Well it wasn't an accurate listing to begin with.

Edit: http://bestbuy.shoplocal.com/bestbuy/Default.aspx?action=browsepagesingle&storeid=24129 20&rapid=1345823&pagenumber=20

Well look at that, seems they redacted the entire Verizon comparison chart. lol

Verizon Wireless is a "For-Profit" organization. If they are selling a product, any product, they will promote it.... one way or another. They gave up the proven best selling phone...Galaxy S II...in order to sell the Galaxy Nexus, there is no way Verizon Wireless is not going to push this phone.

If Verizon Wireless is going to start taking pre-orders, they will advertise it at least one week in advance, like they always do. So the speculation on pre-order tomorrow is really just speculation.

About a couple weeks ago, some UK users reported random volume problem on the Galaxy Nexus. Google has not yet release any official fix, even they have acknowledged the problem. The only fix available came from the developer community, but they are not officially from Google. I am not sure if Verizon might want to wait for the official fix and test it out first. After all, Verizon Wireless is known to take their sweet time on testing.

Clearly you were not here for the Dinc thread. The Dinc did NOT get announced a week in advance of pre-orders.

The fix is out. 4.0.2 supposedly contains the fix.

The volume bug doesn't affect the LTE version.

BT often is someone to follow, but don't forget he also said it would have a 1.5 exynos among other incorrect specs and pretty much trashed the bgr report which turned out to be spot on accurate...just sayin, with fingers crossed.

I just realized something... in some of the unboxing videos, when people first power on the devices it says "Android is upgrading..." before they can do anything. I'm assuming this is a sort of pre-loaded patch that they downloaded to the phones but didn't install. Or perhaps it was a small fix that was downloaded super-quickly OTA before they could even begin using the device... I'm not sure exactly what this means but it could mean that Verizon could push the device without necessarily worrying about every single pre-packaged phone having 4.0.2.

When it would come out, if they got anything in, etc. and he told me that "[he] was actually just given the ability to pre-order three GNexi tonight. I know you're all thinking that this is the guy who got the notice for 50 GNexi but I asked him about that and he said it was screen protectors and cases, not the actual phones... BUT I asked if I could see the computer screen for proof to share with you guys, and while his manager was standing over his shoulder and wouldn't let me take a picture, I DID see that he was able to order [a whopping] three (3) SCH-i515's. No mention of when they would be available, but considering he was just able to order them, we could be seeing pre-orders online at midnight tonight or tomorrow.

BTW this guy gave me the DInc one day before it was released in stores, so I believe him... also he said he would set up a shipping notification for his phone, email, and text so he could call me literally the moment the phones come into the store. You would think if he was the average sales rep he would just try to sell me a RAZR or the like, but he was serious about this and was as excited as I am.

Take it FWIW, I know a lot of you will probably disregard it, but this is a serious news tip, from a verifiable source; I saw the pre-order form with my own two eyes.

I'm sure that your sister will really appreciate your efforts in getting her new phone so quickly.

Is it from Google or from MoDaCo? Regardless, VzW will likely do their own testing and it might take some time.

Yes. And if that story was true, it is an isolated incident. The mother never came back with a photo. Surprise.

I stand somewhat corrected. April 15th Verizon confirmed the Droid Incredible and announced that it would be available for pre-order on April 19 and would arrive in our hands on April 29th. (Source)

Someone else can dig for the link. Sorry, not interested in looking at the moment. There are both an official update to ICS (P3 confirmed over a week ago) and one from a 3party mod.

Steven has been pretty adamant that the OP is for the Nexus only and I've backed his decision for previous requests like this.

By popular demand and after discussing with Phases, I'll add it now.

Please note that Steven may modify it for placement or emphasis or whatnot - it's his post, but we'll work together to clear this confusion.

Hope that helps!

PS - there are already thread clarifications there by Phases, so please expect that it might move from my initial placement in keeping with those notes.

FWIW, I really don't like this whole business of needing a brand new SIM card every time you activate 4G devices on VZW. My family doesn't upgrade very often, but it shouldn't be a disaster when we do.
No problem. I don't get the 4G SIM swapping, either. When I couldn't get my Amazon ordered phone to activate and they sent me to the store, they re-activated an existing (perfectly operational) line in the new phone with a new SIM, instead of the activating the new line that I was trying to port in... they were confused because Amazon's order didn't actually add a line to my account and both lines in question were Bionics, or something... so, they really felt bad. They sent me home with the SIM they'd re-activated, on mistake, and told me that I should just be able to put it in the phone that shouldn't have been touched... but they also handed me an extra SIM, "just in case." I think I might still have a spare SIM around here, somewhere.

HOWEVER! When I replaced my girlfriend's Thunderbolt with a refurb, we just popped the SIM from the dying phone to the refurb... which had a sinking power button ... so then the SIM moved to a third phone, and it worked fine in all three, activated with no issues.

Funny thing just happened:
I'm in my room upstairs and my dad's watching TV downstairs. I hear a faint "DROIIID" and rush downstairs. I catch the 2nd half of a Droid RAZR commercial, and my dad says "you are way too obsessed". He also proceeded to tell me he saw an ad "with people waiting in line for a phone" and I said "Samsung Galaxy S II?" and he was like "yes... you are pathetic"
Only you guys would understand :P

Verizon always does things the same way, except when they don't.
Non Thursday launches? Rezound
silent launch? Droid 3

the Droid 3 was available online for sale on the same day that the official press release came out. there was no announcement prior to the day the phone went on sale.

10 days from pre-order to launch...
12/8 minus 10 days is 11/29.
We could very well see surprise announcement + pre-orders tomorrow.

YES. almost as much as referring to one of the three phones as "beasts", or "pure experience". the threads limited vocabulary is more stressful than VZW lol

It was too late for me to make it to that store. However, I won't be far from it tomorrow, and will stop by and see what's up.

Thanks to RichSz in another thread, there is an article today on Engadget stating that a fix was released by MoDaCo while Google promised the fix is coming. And the fix is not conclusive yet...
Galaxy Nexus volume bug fix gets early release, official testing continues -- Engadget

And I sure hope that this volume problem does not affect the LTE version as mcadam has pointed out.

Non Thursday launches? Rezound

the Droid 3 was available online for sale on the same day that the official press release came out. there was no announcement prior to the day the phone went on sale.
That's cause they knew the Droid 4 was on the way...probably didn't particularly care to sell many Droid 3's if there's a new LTE one coming, and honestly, the Droid 3 should have been an LTE phone anyways.

Also, for those of you that discount the idea that the Nexus could have had a name change at this stage of the game due to all of the boxing and packaging already being made and the first round of phones already being shipped. Don't forget that they did it to the Incredible.

This was the ORIGINAL box early adopters like me got:



And THIS is the box that the next round got:



FULL name change and packaging change AFTER launch.

I agree, PJs hires some top notch talent.
And I do love me some good wings.

Not quite as commercial as PJs, but they also own a fabulous craft brew resturant called the Pour House in Haddonfield. Thier on tap list is quite good. Khybers in Philly still has one of the best tap lists though.

Hope that helps!

PS - there are already thread clarifications there by Phases, so please expect that it might move from my initial placement in keeping with those notes.
I've been thinking about this "original post thing" and I think I have a better solution. Bear (roar) in mind this is all based on an assumption about how the subscribe to thread emails work.

Instead of having a special first post we have a locked sticky thread that is a single post. In that post we tell members to subscribe to the thread (with email notification if they want up to the second notices) and it will be updated when pertinent information comes through the jungle.... errr pre-release "lounge" thread. This could allow the first post of the lounge thread to state reminders for behavior and a mission statement for the thread. It would also allow people who have to work and only one the juiciest of rumors to distract them to be notified. They would get that info without the posts on how South Jersey is way better then North (swamp/yucky beaches) Jersey.

Im tired of hearing all this mess about the nexus, its just a phone that you will tire of quickly. There are real life issues and we spend time obsessing over a damn phone. Easy for him to say, he has one.

Same ownership as PJs, more irish pub feel then sports bar/blouse show. Was only there once to watch a buddy's set, but I enjoyed it Technically both PJs and Poor House are in Westmont as Haddonfield is a dry town, but we all prefer to think of it as Haddonfield.

NFC GOOGLE WALLET NOT NATIVE?

Hey guys,
One of the key features of the galaxy nexus (besides ics) is the nfc capability. i was under the assumption that a google device with nfc would have native support for google wallet. I was shocked to find in an article on engadget that it isnt native for the hspa+ version and u have to root your device and other fancy stuff just to get it to work.

Does anyone know if google was planning on releasing an compatible version of google wallet in the future or will it be native on the us lte version. This is a huger bummer if you have to root the device just to get an app that should come stock. anyway thanks for your response in advance,

Cameron

The Pour House has an excellent selection of beer - not a Miller Lite to be found. A new place also opened up in Turnersville, House of Brews, that is pretty good as well. I believe there used to be a Fuddruckers there, and it's about a mile from a VZW store. Pretty convenient. Definitely gonna have to take a look at Khybers.

He's right on all counts. I wish I wasn't such a nerd so I wouldn't have spent so much time on something I use 5 minutes a day outside of streaming music in my car.
