I think if you just snoop around the vzw website for a bit looking at phones a chat window will pop up.

I don't know if I missed someone else posting this or not, but Verizon mentioned on Twitter that it still plans on announcing the Nexus this year.

With responses from them like above....I'd say it's not worth the struggle.

So many varying opinions on this. I love the idea of a headphone jack on the bottom love it!

Here is what I did exactly.

Signed on>clicked on "upgrade my device">added the Razr to my cart>picked the data package I wanted>clicked continute> then once I got to the option to add warranty, at the top of my screen there was a red button that said "chat live" or something like that and voila!

I have put the LTE switch app to LTE only (w/voice) and it sits there for about ... 15 seconds then goes into 1X.

But I guess my question was answered, if phone is in LTE/CDMA it will automatically connect to 4g when available, unlinke sprint "4g" wimax (which is like searching for wifi)

So the signal in my area isn't strong enough. Hmmph. I do have WiFi at home, but I'm just a nerd and wanted to speed test that LTE goodness. Thanks for the help

You can't. You have to wait for them to contact you. IME, they will bug you as soon as you log in if you're trying to browse, but if you log in and sit there and try to get someone to start a chat, they totally ignore you. Sigh.

As much as I would like to be upset and bash Verizon, I can only hold them to their press release statement of the Gnex being released later this year. They have until 12/31 to live up to that. It would be a PR nightmare (as if they're not already in one) to go back on the only public statement they have made on the release of the device. I know everyone is upset by the latest rumor, but aside from the PR, that's all it is...plain rumors. I want the Gnex to be released as much as anyone, but I will give them a chance to live up to their PR before making any other decisions.

Now to pitch in on the rumor front, I have to say that as much as some people are turned off by P3Droid, he and his inner circle seem to have pretty good sources. They have been saying for a couple weeks that we are looking into mid-late December for a release. I think they may be onto something. I posted some tweets yesteday by PydePypper who like P3, has a pre-release Gnex. Here are a few more:

In reference to a release date:
Quote:
My best guess is preOrders wk of 12/5, with store and shipping wk of 12/12. IE wk right before Xmas and no sooner
In reference to bugs and updates:
Quote:
nothing major just little stuff that is NOT acceptable for release or to someone like google/Samsung/VZW for a flagship device
Quote:
last thing any of the 3 involved need is a bad release. They will never hear the end of it that is for sure.
Quote:
believe me you'd rather wait and have it ready for prime time and not release under current SW. And no specific date i've gotten
Quote:
Don't get me wrong it gets better and better with each update, but say 2 wks ago it was nowhere near ready for prime time.
Again, take all rumors with a huge grain of salt, but it does appear that the guys with pre-release devices had some issues which seem to be getting better with updates. I think signs point to Verizon living up to their "later this year" statement.

Cincy, it's always sad to see people leave but at least they have a great phone NOW. Besides, new folks and lurkers are joining us all the time so it's not like it'll be a ghost town in here by Launch Day... whenever that is

I have an LTE tab, and good LTE coverage where I live. It'll automatically connect to LTE, then drop down as it loses the connection. We travel a lot and I use it in the car, there's one spot on the Mass Pike where there isn't even 3G coverage so it drops down to 1X. Very annoying. But otherwise seamless network switching.

I know the forum gets pretty mad when everyone starts harassing CSRs so you might as well stop before the big warnings come.

Anyways you're just wasting your time. They don't know anything and if they do - They ain't gon tell you!!!

Yeah, the iFixit article has now been updated to include the other 512 MB of RAM in the Multichip Memory Package. Nice sleuthing.

I do know that there is almost as much confusion here as there is on the internet, because only a small circle of people actually know 100% what's going on. Tidbits here and there are dropped along the way and I pass those on to you. But the Nexus could be announced for pre-order tomorrow morning and I can't say it would surprise me.

Speaking of games coming out before this phone is released.

If GT6 comes out before this phone then we are all screwed. Those that waited around for GT5 know what I am talking about. lol

Not true (sorry, quoting your reply as I'm on the phandroid app). The press release actually says "available".

Just to let all of you know, now when you start a chat now with a CSR at Verizon, there is the following disclaimer and announcement at the top of all chat logs:

Please note, here at Verizon Wireless, we know absolutely nothing about the Google Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime 4G LTE, this lack of information includes but is not limited to: release date, release price, final name, final color, size of internal memory. Please do not bother asking our customer service representatives any questions about this alleged phone. Thank you for choosing Verizon Wireless.

If I am wrong based on my conversation yesterday I will be placed in great company with so many other sources that we can have one hell of a kegger.
And just to add more to my original post. On lunch break walking past my VZN corporate store stopped by. CSR super friendly and he laughed at me when I asked about the GNex 'I am waiting for that too and the Samsung rep just left about 30 mins ago' 'Any wait is so worth it and do not buy another phone even our apple guy is getting this phone'. He went on to add that he uses google to find out the latest on releases but they honestly are told nothing. Now, if that is not proof enough that any CSR information is not reliable or is coming from the same place we are echo'ing it from then there is no hope for you.

By 12/15 for $199 is my opinion using Occam's Razor philosophy.

Debunk, refute, and debate but my opinion will not be swayed.

Yesterday I asked the same thing, and then followed up for clarification. Actually went back and forth with @VZWSupport a couple times (they're really good about answering tweets, definitely direct your questions there. Don't harass them, they seem well enough intentioned) and it ended with one of them saying the phone will be out this year. Not that the plan can't change, but they are shooting for 2011.

To me it seems the Source is only saying the announcement could come tomorrow or any other day but at this point he would not be surprised with any day?

Just doesn't seem like something for tomorrow is imminent.

For all of you ranting and raving about sending emails to Verizon I would like to do a bit of community service to these forums about how to do this the proper way.

How To Launch An Executive Email Carpet Bomb - The Consumerist

I followed this advice and with great success with Comcast.

I hope this helps weed out some of the rediculous things that people have debated sending

Hey guys, seriously, for those who are at work where Twitter is blocked, can anyone posting Twitter links from now on post the text of the tweet as well? It's driving me nuts, haha. I thought we had agreed upon that already but I guess people forgot.

Yet here we are 2 months later and don't even have any word of a release date. THAT is my complaint. You don't announce a phone that isn't ready for immediate release, period.
Google/Samsung announced this phone in HONK KONG on Oct 19. Yes, it's not available yet in the US but it has already been released in the UK. So it's certainly not a Google/Samsung issue. But I think we get this sense of entitlement in the US that the latest and greatest must be released here first. That is no longer the case. Samsung Galaxy S2, for example, came here months after it was released in Asia, Europe and South America. Don't get me wrong, I live in California and am waiting for the Galaxy Nexus as well. The G Nex is a world phone. Should Google/Samsung not announce the phone unless it is ready for immediate release in the US market? Hardly the case any more.

For those OG Droiders and DXers out there, Fabolous has a GN already. Been tweeting quite a storm about it. Hopefully he can get on to some development soon for it (and here's hoping ROMs/themes are interchangeable between GSM and LTE!).

I wrote Mr. Bianchi. I was polite, somewhat verbose, did not threaten, did not mention this forum, did not cite Nazis or communism, used no foul language and spoke with respect. I plead my case and asked him to please release the GNex in early December. No point in posting it here since others have covered the content. It will probably do no good but I had to try.

You never know until you try.

Did much the same. Didn't want to post the message here, but was very kind (albeit a *little* impatient sounding )

Thank you Source, since we know your watching! Yeah, the clarification that this is more of a contingency plan definitely makes me feel better. Of course Verizon will have contingency plans. If you combine that with a statement that on the bright side, it will help Q1 numbers, voila, you get basically what Hanette told Han.
