Hmmm so no prompt for update -- strange. I wonder if it was supposed to go TO 4.0.1 or to 4.0.2 as the initial OTA update.

Not really thinking about the phone much today -- today was omelet day at work and I have been working with a consultant pretty much on and off all day.

Obviously they should institute a secret release.

Go to the store say the passphrase "Polly has a pocket of tiddlywinks" to enable Galaxy Nexus sales.

Just think, people who specifically know can buy the phone. Others can wait for the commercial release. People who would go to these ends would obviously forgive any small hiccups before an official release.

My Costco said it was "a car charger" but they did not specify if this meant an actual car dock with integrated charger, or just a run of the mill car charger (I'm suspecting this). Either way, it's $10 off Verizon's price, along with some goodies, so unless my wife needs the car, I'll be heading to my local Costco to pick up my phone.

Honestly, I don't understand the posts here saying things like "convince me not to get a Razr/Rezound/iPhone" because the Nexus is head and shoulders above anything else out right now, full stop. This is the only phone that I can fathom owning for the next 18+ months while quad-core phones and 28nm processors are being perfected.

Stay the course, friends. The wait is almost over.

Fixed.

For right now, right at this moment, this is a Sprint-only application. Like I said, it is not on any other phone in the US, Nexus or otherwise. You can buy an unlocked, unbranded, Nexus S and you won't be able to use it without rooting and hacking it on there. You can buy the Nexus S direct from Best Buy, in the United States, unlocked, or subsidized on ATT, whichever you prefer, and you won't be getting Google Wallet.

What everyone is expecting is tantamount to someone expecting that you are going to be able to get VZW Navigator on a T-Mobile phone, because T-Mobile doesn't have the authority to block it so you should be able to use it. Wrong.

When Google Wallet came out, Google explicitly stated, this functionality is available on the Nexus S 4G from Sprint. And they left it at that. Nowhere did they say this will work for any other device. Google has also not announced that it will work on the Galaxy Nexus whatsoever.

BUT, he said they "recalled" it??? He said he had been in the buisness for 15 yrs and had never seen a phone get recalled "twice" and said that he was going to get it himself but since it has been "recalled" he wasn't going to. He also said "I wouldn't get that phone if I were you" He said it must have bugs and that its ridiculous that people are saying it was a 4g problem.

..... Soooooo now I don't know what to think. Has anyone heard the word "recalled" used yet? Does anyone have any solid info on the exact reason for the delay?

long thread.. sorry if this has been talked about already.
Haven't heard the word recall used at all. That's interesting but it sounds like he was a bit paranoid or hoping to sell you something else? No one has reported major bugs with it during any of the testing or any of our various sources or on the GSM. It just doesn't ring true to what I've been hearing.
Thankfully!

Not sure if this has been discussed and mods sorry if this is not allowed since it walks the grey line of legality but...

If a VZW employee or 3rd party was charging extra to give you the phone now would you guys pay it? And how much?

Next weekend is it for me. I am buying another phone with VZW (purely a money saving move for our family) if next Thursday passes by w/ no release. Sadly the only company this hurts is Google and maybe Samsung. My selfish wish if this comes to pass is that VZW pulls the Nexus and ships it all back because then I will just wait for the $99 Nexus off contract and get it then. Samsung can't sell these phones to any other carrier in the world but they will want to offload them. I am starting to kick myself though for not picking up the Rezound when Amazon had it for $.01 (I am a new customer)

Does any end user actually care about Google Wallet right now? Will significantly more actually care about it a year from now when the next Nexus is likely to drop??

Seems like a lot of people planning on going to the Hoboken store. Guess I should go before work and not at lunch then. They're an awesome store from what I've experienced and definitely will be getting my business unless someone sells it early.

I do. That was actually one of the reasons I was attracted to the next nexus phone when the S came out. I want it.

I care about it. I travel to NYC from NJ a few times a month and almost every place (even the ticketing machines) in Port Authority take Google Wallet. I definitely want it in my Nexus as it would require me not to take out my wallet, which would be awesome. I have my phone out of my pocket anyway most of the time so it would make it a lot easier to pay for my tickets and drinks from Duane Reade.

Just think, people who specifically know can buy the phone. Others can wait for the commercial release. People who would go to these ends would obviously forgive any small hiccups before an official release.

Didn't work. I just went to my local store and said just like you said:

"Polly put a tinkle in her stinkerwinks"

I repeated it multiple times with enthusiasm. Nothing. They just looked at me like they needed security or something. I know, right?

So I'll just tell me experience..

Went into a Verizon retail store last night around 6ish.. Asked the guy what he knew and he came clean saying "yes, they planned tomorrow, but it got pushed back to the 15th." He claimed he got an email stating that the day was the 15th and it was official internal but could obvious be changed at any given moment.

I then asked for a demo, and low and behold the other tech had it in his pocket like it was nothing.. haha... so I played with it, and it definitely lives up to the hype. Did a speed test and it was rocking 30 Mbit download on 4G!! Amazing.. Can't wait another week. They broke my Nexus cherry.

Another Nexian Nerd was there and asked if I wanted to bum rush the stock room. I don't think it's worth going to jail for... is it??

Maybe I should send VZW an email asking them for the release date since I am part owner... I own quite a few shares of VZ. BTW, I'm up 17.33% on their stock!!!

Am I the only one questioning the validity of the 15th due to the lack of leaked pics? I mean, generally when a new date is given for this phone there's a pic of the email/document that contained the leak. Have I just missed it? I haven't seen anything except people reporting from their reps.

Sorry, I want this phone but I'm not willing to jeopardize someone's livelihood just to get it early. Just something WAY unethical about it... especially during the holiday season, they have bills to pay and maybe mouths to feed.

Not worth it. I'll wait

I agree, I think somethings up??? I think that it is one of the company lines their being told to say. I'm just trying to think positive that their saying that, but really planning on releasing sooner then that!

Just called my local Radio Shack. This is the first person I have spoken to in this town that has acknowledged the existence of this device.

He just now received 2 GN and he put one on hold for me! He said he would call as soon as he heard from VZW or RS Corporate when he could sell it. I offered to pay him for the entire purchase and he laughed and said it wasn't necessary. They open 9a and I told him I would be there when they opened their doors on that day. He laughed again. That's as good as a pre-order to me.
