Yeah, I know how you feel. I've called maybe 5 or so stores within a 5 mile radius of my house, all to be told that they do not know if it will be released this Friday, but if it does, that they will have them in stock, although they assured me that only a minimal amount will be available. But I'd definitely like to see an actual confirmation, a press release or something.

Is this an independent? Or the corporate on route 9? I can't decide where I'm going because I have a small independent near my house in Jamesburg. The store owner didn't know anything about the phone (or just wasn't giving anything away) so I didn't press her about it. I will get it when I get it I guess.

Here is a quote from the manual that was posted earlier. For all you people who have never had a Vanilla Android device, this may come as good news to you:

Share your phone's data connection as a portable Wi-Fi hotspot


1
Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > More > Tethering & portable hotspot.

2


Check Portable Wi-Fi hotspot.

After a moment, the phone starts broadcasting its Wi-Fi network name (SSID), so you can connect to it
with up to 8 computers or other devices.


To stop sharing your data connection, uncheck
Portable Wi-Fi hotspot.



Rename or secure your portable hotspot
You can change the name of your phone's Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and secure its Wi-Fi network
when it's acting as a portable hotspot.
1
Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > More > Tethering & portable hotspot.

2
Make sure Portable Wi-Fi hotspot is checked.

3
Touch Configure Wi-Fi hotspot.
The Configure Wi-Fi hotspot dialog opens.

4
Set your name and security options as follows:
Change the Network SSID (name) that other computers see when scanning for Wi-Fi networks.
Choose a security option. Choosing
WPA2 PSK adds a password field to the Configure Wi-Fi
hotspot dialog. If you enter a password, you will need to re-enter that password when you connect to
the hotspot with a computer or other device. To remove security from your Wi-Fi network, choose

Open
.

5 Touch Save.

Called my corporate store guy and he said he was at lunch, but would call me back after he checks on which day he can sell me one. He didn't sound certain that they had them in stock yet, but said he's pretty sure they will be here in time for launch. Hopefully he will sell me one tomorrow evening

Well ladies and gents, it's OFFICIAL for me in Dallas. I just held the BEAUTIFUL and slim Nexus in my hand. It's truly a sexy work of art. My guy said he'd text when it was available to sell, said he had plenty of stock on phones and accessories, and was just waiting.

No sooner did I leave, he text me and said he got the OFFICIAL Verizon notice that 12/09 was the sale date for the Nexus.

I took a picture of it in my hand, just so I could know that Snuffalupugus (sp?) was real till 9am Friday morning.

Happy? Absolutely not. I get 1-2 bars here and 2Mb down on a good day. I was just holding on to AT&T for the "Unlimited Data"

When you say "Verizon will treat you no better" what do you mean by that? Their Customer service HAS to be somewhat better

But yeah, I'd have "3G" here until they expanded LTE to my area, but from what I've seen, Verizon 3G is nearly as fast as AT&T HSPA+ in my area.

IIRC they don't disable it, but when you try to use it you are directed to purchase the hotspot plan before it will start sharing.

Woah, does this mean it bypasses Verizon's pre-requisite plan? Or will they start charging you automatically if you choose to use it without a plan

I stopped at an verizon wireless wireless zone retailer on my way home and two different reps told me two different things. One said they'll announce it Thursday and it'll be available Friday morning. The other jumped in during our conversation and said they have no information and nothing from verizon and don't know when it'll be released and blah blah blah, he was very defensive and couldn't answer any questions I had on it so I left, I'll call the Verizon corp store to see if they have anything but it sounds like we should not hold our breath for an official announcement tomorrow.

The most disheartening part about this ending to the nexus release is calling to nearly every Verizon store in my metropolis area (San Francisco area) and hearing no news at all no matter what tactic I try. It's hard to see everyone claiming they have their names on lists, possibly getting it early, or even getting "phone numbers" and sneak peeks at phones... when I can't even get on a "yea we'll add you to a list" while hearing them laugh in the background as if I should know they're lying to me. Guess some of us just have to keep waiting, no matter how much of a larger populated city we live in vs all these podunk towns being named :P

In the part of the manual that explains voice actions, I just found a great one! Siri doesn't even send you a recording of yourself, when you do a "Note to self." (Or does it? I don't know for sure.)

“Note to self” -- Message text -- “Note to self: remember the milk”

No sooner did I leave, he text me and said he got the OFFICIAL Verizon notice that 12/09 was the sale date for the Nexus.

I took a picture of it in my hand, just so I could know that Snuffalupugus (sp?) was real till 9am Friday morning.
Where in Dallas? Also it'd be interesting to know how much stock they got

No, it'll probably bring you to a vzw page saying you need the tethering plan.

Thanks. I hope I'm not bugging you...one more question. Did you happen to chat with them about how much stock they are getting? I guess my biggest fear here is that since I have to work a double on Friday, they may sell out before I can get there

Here's what I know.

I am a T-Mobile subscriber. T-Moblie has tethering plans for sale.

I have a Vanilla Android device (Nexus One). I enable and use this feature all the time, without T-Mobile contacting me about purchasing tethering, and without any charges showing up on my bill. (My phone is not and has never been rooted.)
