i think that's precisely why VZW keeps store managers in the dark...

Everyone has a right to their opinion and a right to express it here, within the site rules for language, as often and as loudly as they like.

No one has the right to attack each other instead of the issue - which in this case, is generally, when is it coming, who do you trust, and can a mod please apply electroshock therapy at maximum voltage to people who spoof others' accounts.

No need to get cross-threaded today with the same folks you'll want to share the love and excitement with, before you know it, when everyone is holding their Nexii and wondering what nice gift is best to secret Santa me your favorite pal.

Yes?

Had to call Verizon today for something with my wife's line so I figured I would ask the CSR if he had any information on the Nexus. He was really nice and said "if you are following closely, you probably know more than I do." He said they are kept in the dark for the reason that they have 900 people in his call center alone and if one person slips up a day and says something, it snowballs pretty quick.

He also said that they sign a confidentiality contract, which I find interesting, especially if other CSRs are so open with their information. He said he has been there a while and when the *ugh* iPhone was released, he actually learned that they were starting to sell it the next day while watching 60 Minutes the night before.

That's not necessarily the case, many corporate owned accounts still have unlimited data.

We just activated 2 more lines on our corporate owned account with unlimited 4g data.

Our employee liable accounts no longer have unlimited if activated after 7/7. But we still get to keep our 25% discount.

Just wanted to share my 2 cents. The rest that I have been talking to has told me that the phone is coming in on friday. I just called the store and got a hold of another rap and they told me the same thing. I asked them if it was official and he said he thinks it is pretty is the show and it is not from internet rumors. My guess is that they are getting their sources from somewhere from either a district manager or excetera. He said he's almost sure it's either going to be this friday or sometime this weekend. Is the english is messed up sorry and I'm driving

GOOD DAY!! I just got my GNex case in the mail, and it looks like i will have something to put in it by the end of the week. Here's hoping for a press release tonight/tomorrow. Now that the cat is out of the bag with those official packaging pics posted, they can't use their "we have no information on that device" line any more. Come on VZ, we all know it's real, we all know it's in stores, just tell us if we can buy it Thursday or Friday!!

Certainly a possibility. Did we get confirmation that it was VZW who was responsible for Sammy pulling the demo unit off the showroom floor? I was basically skimming at work today, perhaps I missed that part.

I'm curious. If the chats posted by Steven today both say next week, meaning anytime after 12/12, where are you folks getting friday from. Friday is still in this week, the same week as today.

Just spoke with my rep again. He told me that everything was in the store. I'm assuming he was talking about acccessories but I'm also wondering if he was talking about the phone also. He was saying that everything he's been told is pointing towards a friday released. It was originally thursday but being pushed back to friday. He said nothing's been sent from gmail. But to sound like management has an idea of when it is going to be released. You guys to try calling to chattanooga tennessee store on gunbarrel road it is the corporate storea.

But to sound like management has an idea of when it is going to be released. You guys to try calling to chattanooga tennessee store on gunbarrel road it is the corporate storea.
I just called, they said they don't have it in the store yet.

Good evening fellow members,

So I can see that now some of you happen to have doubts of the information I give you guys. Well like I stated from the very beginning, I am not here to prove my credibility or state my sources or pass anything I tell you off as official Verizon statements. I'm only here to help you guys out and state what I am aware of at the moment.

Unfortunatly, it seems someone from another forum was trying to pass themselves off as an official and take credibility for an indirect source, as a result we had to place a request for closure to preven further confusion. It appears to me that most of you guys are no longer in trust of my information and choose to question the posts I am providing you. Unfortunatly, I cannot accept this criticism any longer and have to require myself to prove all my statements.

And to those of you who have thanked me for my help, I would like to take this moment to express my gratitude. I am aware that you guys are a very dedicated community of Android users and we appreciate all the support you provide for us and your fellow peers. Thank you for being a very active part of the products and devices we provide for you. I expect this to be my signing off statement and I wish all of you the best. Hang in there everyone, the phone is coming this week and regardless of who you are (doubter or believer) I am sure everyone on this thread will be enjoying our device very soon. Take care and best of luck.

Respectfully,

So the XDA guy who dropped the pics in the first place contradicts this statement from open1your1eyes.

Then the XDA thread gets shut down because of someone's (Verizon's?) "request".

What is going on here?

Nothing we didn't already assume, but when the WSJ says something it shouldn't be taken with any grains of salt lol.
In other news, water is wet.

(Making fun of the "news," not you. Did anyone think it would be anything different?)

I just thought I would let you know that I have built a YouTube friendship with the guy that has posted the Verizon Nexus vids on YouTube. We have been messaging each other all week, he used to live in Indiana and has friends that live near me, anyhow I have been politely harassing him since we met, and he told me today that his rep is saying the 9th is the release date. He doesn't work for Verizon I know that much, so i assume he works for Samsung or Google.

Looks like I will be waiting 6+ months for it to go on sale. I cannot afford to dish out $300 right now with the holiday coming up

Oh wow. I didn't know all that. So, you've worked in customer service, for a couple months at a time, for 4 years maximum?

Hmmm ... well, I've worked customer service full time for nearly 20 years. There is one particular question that I get asked multiple times every day. I can tell you, without equivocation, that my demeanor can sometimes reach to discouraging at best.

All I'm saying is that if people would stop harassing the CSRs that they wouldn't have to worry about one being nasty to to them when all they are doing is basically wasting their time ( and believe me, that's exactly how the CSRs see it ).

You're a part of this forum so you will know, probably within hours, when the Gnex is for sale. I'm sure you'll get one in the first batch - which, face it, is what everyone harassing these CSRs really wants.

My whole point is that everyone needs to chill out ( I've said it before on MULTIPLE occasions ). The Gnex will be here when it is here. Not a second before and calling vzwcs or poking around in stores will not change that. It's been stated that the Gnex will drop before the end of the year. Please, I implore you and all the others ... take that to mean anytime before 1/1/12. When it drops this week or next, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

As an econ major, for the love of God and all things holy, I recommend that you do take the WSJ with a grain of salt.
