Why bother? The manager is likely the reason you went 0 for 20 on their reps. If the manager of a store doesn't want the employees to give out information, then it's probably not gonna happen.

Sounds like you have an internal battle to solve. As skeptical as you are about the release, does that outweigh your skepticism for even getting one in case of low stock?

What a dilemma for those having so much skepticism. Life is easier when one is more optimistic imo. Roll with the punches

News update, south Louisiana. Just went into a Verizon Retail(Non Corporate store). District manager happened to be in store and was the one who helped me. He says one store in their district(15 stores) does the ordering for phones and sends them out to the individual store. He would check to see if they were able to order them yet, and have the store manager give me a call in the next few days. After that, we talk for about 5-10 minutes and build up a good rapport.

20 minutes after I leave he calls me and says he checked with main office, the phones have been ordered and he will have them to sell on the 9th. "This Friday?" I ask. Yep Friday the 9th. He says it is a tough phone to get. They were only allowed to order 40 total. For all 15 stores. I.E. 2.66 per store. He is holding one for me and making sure I am the first one to get it. :-)

FWIW:

I called two corporate stores in the Memphis area yesterday afternoon. For both, I explained that I was a long time customer and was up for an upgrade. I had heard about the Galaxy Nexus and wanted to know when it was going to be available. I got 2 different answers. The 1st store I was quickly told, "No, I don't know when it will be available." The 2nd store, after about a 5 minute wait on hold, the lady came back and stated, "I'm showing that it will be available on the 8th."

8th or 9th, either would be good. I'm on vacation Friday, so I'll have plenty of time to play.

How many different smartphones does VZW currently offer? 50? 75?

If I had 50 different products with ticking obsolescence clocks and only 3 price points, I would NOT spend pre-release time advertising the next big thing....just saying.

People, we are not being trolled.

To be trolled THIS far into the game would mean that Phandroid, Android Central, RootzWiki, Engadget, Droid Life, and britishturbo will all soon become non-trustworthy Android sites/sources. That is NOT going to happen. Each site is saying they have their own inside sources, meaning at this point, one site isn't just copying the info from all the others.

IF, and that's a HUGE IF, the phone isn't out Friday, it means that Verizon has once again had second thoughts and delayed it for some reason. But I don't think that is going to happen this late in the game. Too many things have factored in to push the launch back yet again. Stores have stock or will have stock by end of day. Best Buy now has stock coming in. Promo materials are out. Training for indirect retailers is happening. Verizon mentioned the phone in a press release yesterday, it is the first time they've mentioned it since October. It's happening...

But IF for some reason it doesn't happen, please don't try and say ALL of these people, as well as the forum members who were able to get corporate store confirmation, were just trolling. It makes no sense.

Mine is $30 as well, but if you go to the upgrade section online, it discounts $50 from the Razr and Rezound making them $249. I imagine it will do the same for the GN.
And no, the $30 is not based on late payments like someone else mentioned. It is determined by the time of last renewal and the plan contract. In my case it is the primary line of a family plan.

NBC Bay Area has the story up on it's website saying it launches on Dec 9. Do prominent news companies usually report these rumors? I doubt it.

It is strange, my friend who works for a reseller who _never_ gets anything on the day it comes out (Essentially they aren't one of the super premium resellers) called me this morning and said he ordered them this morning they showed as "in stock" and "available" to order.

Sooooo, I know it's getting tiring, but I have nothing else to do on this rainy afternoon so I decided to call the 3 Verizon stores in DC politely inquiring about the Nexus.
1st - They know about it, said no idea on the launch, but to call back tomorrow.
2nd - Put me on hold for a WHILE. Said they don't know about launch.
3rd - Asked a fellow employee. Don't know about the launch. Said within the week or two. Did also say they had a "working model" in the store.

Anyway, I'm really hoping it's a Thurs launch since I'm off work in the morning. Friday would be a no go and would have to wait until Saturday. All three stores said they can't hold a phone but they should "have plenty in stock". Either way, I'm still pysched for the weekend!

Edit: And two other bits. I stopped in my local BB and casually asked the Mobil dpt. about the Nexus. She had no idea what the phone was. (no news there, it's not the best staffed store in the area)
Also, one of the store reps did believe there will be a pre-launch but, again, had no details.

$30 is for feature phones, $50 is for smart phones then $100 is for all those other requirements that somene else posted. Lets drop this subject POOF

PHONE QUESTION BELOW:

Given that there were posts mentioning USB connectivity issues (something about no SD card = partition= difficulty in getting some tech platforms to recognize the GNex via USB), will I be able to plug the Gnex into the USB port of my HD Roku? I have an HD Roku, nad a really old CRT television...

also, will my IOG Droid Motorola chargers work OK to charge the Gnex? They's mini USB, like the Gnex.

I just called my cooperate store (Sarasota, FL) and asked when it would be available.

He said:
"It looks like they just announced it will be available on friday"

I asked if they had any in stock and he said:

"No"

He suggested I get there friday morning and I should have no problem. Don't think I will bother with ordering online. I might call if it goes up for preorder and see when the expected arrival date is.

that means you have to buy from one of the following places:
1) Verizonwireless.com
2) Verizon corporate owned stores (not premium retailers)
3) 800-922-0204 or *611

Sometimes you can get a 3rd party to give you the same NE2 discount, but that's a YMMV.
Not true.

I own a Verizon Wireless Premium Retailer and we honor NE2's

Haha I've actually been to the one in Jersey City (its HUGE) But I have not been to the one in hoboken. The addresses confused me the first time I went and I thought I was going to hoboken, ended up at the Jersey city one. Freakin' amazing man! Hands down best place I've been- very few guidos even on Fri nights .
