Those bb


cases are rugged. I got one with my Storm, used it for a year and gave it to my boss who is still using it with his LG Dare after he broke the original plastic holster it came with.

I use a pouch too. There are several options you can find searching on Google. You can't beat a naked phone.

Sorry folks, I didn't even ASK about a pre-order date (I was in the doctor's office with a sick kid... but hey: THAT'S a call I had to take!) because I want to pick it up personally.

Wish I could be more help on the pre-order side... but I'm not...

If anything changes, you guys will know about it!

I got a call on my cell phone tonight from said rep! And Launch Day is:

DECEMBER 8TH!



SO I am 99% convinced that - unless Verizon completely botches it - I have 6 days to go and I'll be holding my Beloved Nexus in my hands! WHOOT!





Steven! Where are you?!?!?!?!?!

EDIT: Sorry for yelling

Default Costco ready upon launch

I texted my Costco sales person a little while ago.

I told her about the December 8th date we are feeling more and more confident about and she called her general manager and told him about that. She called me back and said that all he would say was "middle of December" but tell your customer "we will definitely have it on launch day if you know what I mean."

The only bad news here is that they cannot sell it until noon on launch day, at the time, I didn't think to ask why.

So, I'll be at Costco mid-morning next Thursday.

Edit: She also said they will have the Rezound very soon, but no bundle with it.

I got a $5 fleabay case for my DX and it saved the phone from potential harm a few times before the tabs all broke off.

Will the phone fit in a case with a skin on it? If it will get both, then you don't have to be decisive.

Thank you on the congratulations. I actually moved away from Nashville, Tennessee to South Texas a year ago where I met my amazing wife. We have been married for three weeks tomorrow. My first marriage. I will be 30 on the 14th of this month. So, I was actually very picky and it paid off.

Congratulations everyone. Hopefully we will all be celebrating soon!


Yep, still have my Dinc too. Did you ever Black it out?

I got married later than most my friends and we are coming up on 20 yrs next year. I think you did it right! It's a lot of work - but it's worth it.

Peace.

Exactly. Bars are not good for phones. Has anyone with a TPU case put a skin under it? Think it would fit?

this thread is definitely more epic, but between panda poems, multiple bennns, and the whole BestBuy insider thread with jay, the thunderbolt release was pretty crazy. can't believe i've been through this twice now. looks like there are some inc/bionic owners in here that have gone through it all before as well.

I was under the impression that the GNex doesn't have enough power to power an external device. However, a device that has its own power source is hit or miss. There are some that work and some that don't.

A week ago, I didn't think there was any way for me to get the Nexus. An additional line for a Christmas present and realizing there is an available upgrade on the account and I am now impatiently waiting for the beast. Glad I haven't been here since the beginning. Would be on medication by now.

Yup, I did the Inc, the TB and now this. I have to say, people got awfully angry at Panda and even Jay during that mess. I've enjoyed this forum so much more.
