I had a dream this morning about getting the Gnex.

I was in my old 8th grade class croom, or something like that, and we were being sold some things??

I got a gnex and later found out another guy got it too. I had bought a case with it, contemplating keeping the case or not. It was actually a pretty nice leather case that didn't add bulk and had a belt clip on that worked well.

I remember the shape, it was kinda like a PSP... weird.

So I rented a Razr for a few days and took it back this past week in anticipation for the Galaxy Nexus.

I've been on the phone with Verizon the past 3 days trying to get my upgrade eligibility back. Apparently since they no longer offer yearly upgrades once you use it, they can't just put it back into the system, and a manager approval upgrade will not work on 4g phones.

So I finally got a rep to make notations on my account to allow me to upgrade to the Nexus. How reliable are these notes, and can I call the local store and have them verify they are on there? I returned the phone early before the 14 days so I wouldn't have any problems upgrading to the nexus and having to fight with them about the holiday return. I can't even imagine what people are going to go through trying to get them to return a phone past the 14 days.

this is exactly why i am keeping my razr until GNex release day and then exchanging it. a return requires you to wait for your upgrade eligibility to be put back on your account, an exchange does not.

I think the connection works with the 3-pin assembly. See 0:40 on the video to confirm that a "Micro USB to HDMI MHL" cable will plug into the back of the dock. Then you'll just need a "splitter" like this one (but for the Nexus) to allow for a charger and connection to TV. Of course worst case scenario, you could do the same thing without the dock.

they take up a very marginal amount of memory when disabled, but do not use any system resources. fully uninstalling them requires rooting. titanium backup makes it easy after that.

I had the exact same thing happen to me with the Bionic I bought upon its launch. They are correct they cannot re-add your upgrade back into the computer system, however, the note on your account is golden. Your good, but what I would do is double check and talk to CS and make sure your account is noted. You might have to do some "splainin" in the store, if that's where you go to get your new phone, but it shouldn't be an issue. Be prepared though and have your scenario laid out before you go.

This article shows that you can disable it.

Removing it is pretty simple to; once you root!

It takes up space in storage yeah, but doesn't run in the background using up your ever so precious RAM :P

Sure you can eliminate it rooted.

Hmm...I never thought about it like that. Hopefully the pin connection doesn't interfere with this..

I went to the Northlake Verizon. Not the one in the Mall, but the store in the Target complex by the mall.

I love the Northlake area. I moved here a year ago from Boston without ever visiting Charlotte and wanted to stay north for work. My commute roundtrip has decreased from 2.5 hours to a half hour.

U can by rooting but the Verizon apps are less than a MB so when you have 32 GB of storage space its not as important as say the Droid 1 that only had like 256 MB of app storeage

Ha! That's the store closest to me too. When I stopped by last Saturday, they told me that the Black Friday rush was so large they had to take down the door and surrounding windows to deal with the crowd.

Guess I was gullible enough to believe it.

I went to that location last week. I live in the university area so I usually go to the Concord Mills location or the one on Tryon just past Harris Blvd. The sales rep at that Northlake location is the one who told me it wouldn't be out until after the holidays.

They didn't give us the real scoop either. Our rep told us the Kool-Aid man jumped through it.

I second battery cover. I'd love more of a description of the building and how it feels in hand in general. I don't many of the reviews have discussed it much and personally I find that important in a phone. I know it's in NYC where I imagine the reception is good, but maybe test out the GPS! See how quickly it locks in.

I would guess it's the same as the SGSII which is flimsy, but very flexible. Unlike the Dinc for example which had a flimsy non-flexible back and cracked on me. The rezound has the same back, and I'm afraid to take out the battery because I feel like I'll crack the back cover.

I'm going against everyone and saying wear the heels. Those are cute! However, make sure your clutch/wristlet/bag isn't as flashy as the shoes. Let the shoes be the focal point of the outfit.

In fact,a nice red or black clutch would go so well with this outfit. It's small so it won't take away from the shoes, and it will accent everything together.

Yes... I'll admit it. I'm a 26 year old male with some fashion sense. Ladies can either love it or hate it! lol
Not against everyone, I picked those as well. That was assuming it was a date of course. If not, you may give him the wrong impression.

Seriously, I think you'll love ANY Android phone you get. You've got some serious patience and/or self-discipline there. Almost as much as anyone on the original BlackBerry Storm...

I agree. How does it FEEL? Does it feel big and bulky? Or just a little bigger than the rest? Does it feel solid, well made or cheap? Am I going to need a "Phone bag" or will my pocket do?

The MicroUSB is still accessible on the side so you can just plug an MHL into that with the phone in the dock. There's no way three pins can carry enough data for HDMI video.

Dude, it probably takes up maybe 2mb of space out of your 16/32gigs...

waittaminute ... is this another chick-phone? j/k

I just returned from Costco... and while I didn't really have the time or the will to stop and chat, I did overhear one rep say to the other ... "yeah I just read the documents they sent us about the grandfathering."

I was very tempted to ask, but I didn't think I'd get a response, so I didn't.

It is a good sign. I don't think it guarantees it will be out next week, but I highly doubt it's going to be more than a few more weeks wait.

It's kind of funny that it's on display at a Samsung store...yet Verizon is still silent about it.

There's no doubt in my mind we should hear something Monday from Verizon.

Yeah, that was my first thought as well when I saw only three pins in the original leaks.

USB requires 4 contacts minimum, and MHL uses the same connector. Four pins are 5V power and return, and ser+ and ser-.

Not sure what the three pogo pins on the GNex do, other than just power. Could be similar to those magnetic plugs that aren't polarized, so they can connect either way. Ground on outside two pins and voltage center, for example. Either way, it would nice if they would have added the capability to output signals through a dock.

So, not only do we get Verizon bloat but also Tmobile bloat.
It also has Netflix, Robot Adventure, Quadrant and Speedtest.

Pretty sure they're not coming either. People have obviously been adding apps to the phone.
