Just called Verizon Wireless *611 and asked to have my last NE2 moved from 12/28 to 12/9 in anticipation of the Galaxy Nexus launch on the 9th. The CSR asked if I'd pre-ordered it yet. I nearly fell out of my chair. I stammered and said, no but I'd like to right now if that's possible. She said hold for one moment while I confirm I can do this pre-order. I am on hold sitll.

People are sure getting in a huff over the title of an internet thread. This isn't open heart surgery, it's a phone release. Relax...it really doesn't matter all that much in the long run. Let people get excited if they want. It's a phone, a gadget. This is all supposed to be fun!

Yeah, we will get a press release. Actually when you think about it, if Verizon does launch where you have to ask for the phone, it is a pretty huge favor to us in the tech community. They are basically saying, we are saving the phone for those in the know first. So the scenario of Joe blow coming in and taking the last phone and a Nexaholic going home empty handed is less likely.

I am extremely upset over Verizon and the other carriers blocking Google Wallet. There has to be some sort of legal precedent here. You cannot block a competing product to push your own product down consumers' throats.

Which is exactly why Verizon doesn't want Google Wallet on this phone. If people start using this before ISIS comes out, it's unlikely they'll switch.

Google is really smart about somethings and really stupid about others.

they need to look at history and how products become standards.

Betamax vs VCS
apple vs PC (the first time in the 80's)
dvd-hd vs blueray
etc...

the faster you can get a product/service widely distributed the better chance of it being adopted...

I, for one, do know better. And yet, I am also optimistic for a release this week. Curious thing, the human mind, with its reasons and desires.

I'd hope they announce something this morning if Thursday is really the day. I'd rather let my job know i'll be out than faking sick to get my phone, hehe

Agreed, I can totally see VZW blocking it. I was referring to why Google would give Sprint a exclusive. (if the ZDnet report accurate). But again like the the poster mentioned it may be that Google is spinning everyone else saying no into a Sprint "exclusive" . who knows

Verizon says "No Google Wallet for you!" - Verizon to block Google Wallet from Galaxy Nexus usersAndroidGuys

They call it what it looks like. Anticompetitive. GW is already working at some places. I'm not aware of ISIS being actually available anywhere.

that's what I was told about moving the "date".

Basically the can't move the date what they do is a "manager" override and order you the phone anyway so you need to call or go to a store :/ (I have a note on my account also)

I asked her if there is a pre-order scheduled since she asked me if I wanted to pre-order. She said with this phone no one knows for sure. They are told one thing one day and something different another. I asked again about my date changing from 12/28 to 12/9, she said she'd note my account that she said it could be moved, but I would need to call on Friday to complete everything.

Had my hopes up. I am in the same boat. Got four incredibles on launch day. I was recently told by CRS that my day could be moved up a month but I had to order through telesales. They would put a note in my file saying it could be moved up, but would only move it up by calling back to #611 to order.

That is a true bummer. I wasn't even calling to harass anyone this time. I had NO intention of asking anything other than about moving my date. When she asked ME do I want to pre-order I thought I'd pass out. I of course said YES PLEASE!

I think this points to the fact that with this phone even the employees are in total confusion.

Come to think of it. What she did was incredibly mean. It's like asking a person starving if they'd like a cheeseburger then saying, nah just kidding.

[EXCLUSIVE] Galaxy Nexus To Drop Stateside December 9th

but then again at one point we were SURE this phone was coming out the first week in November lol
Anyone wonder how this is an 'exclusive' as stated in the link when other sources have already reported it.

I'm still taking the approach "When I see it I'll believe it".

If Verizon does it you know the other carriers will follow or already did it. Verizon is not going to give the competition something to use as a leg up on them

They were the first (and only that I can remember) to get physical proof instead of a "CSR told me so".

Haha, yeah, I am sure there is on little tidbit that allows them to use the exclusive in their title.

Edit: oops I had seen another exclusive title from another site, but this was rootzwiki, where the docs on the OP came from.

I assume you're new to this thread, there are no such things as 'no ifs, ands, or buts'. Wait and see but don't believe it's 100% at this point.

Nothing is definite until Verizon says so but it's looking like it.

The only time I think you can so "no ifs, ands, or buts" is when you are holding it in your hand.

All indications point to a Friday release. All indications are the letter at this point.

While the Google Wallet thing sucks, I think it's crazy that anyone expected any different.

1. The only device you can use Google Wallet on right now officially is the Nexus S 4G on Sprint.
2. The GSM Nexus S has this functionality disabled
3. The GSM Galaxy Nexus has this functionality disabled

Everyone is crying foul over this not being a Nexus device anymore when MOST Nexus devices, including the ones seen as "purely pure Google", don't have access to it anyway.

It's not a HUGE deal considering GW will eventually be cracked over to the GNex anyway.

I pre-ordered my Dinc at 12:00 a.m. EST not CST. That would have been 11:00 pm CST.

No. There are still some ifs, ands or buts. However it looks more promising than the last 5 or 6 times we've gone down this road.

Because they do website updates on central, USUALLY. But pre orders would start in the first time zone to hit midnight.
Are you really trying to make sense of verizon??

No ANDs or BUTs, I think you can always assume an IF when it comes to any phone release
