FWIW I also heard the manager at my store say the 15th, but not sure where they got that info. Maybe VZW is just calling all the store managers instead of making an official email.
Maybe they figure by calling instead of sending an email there will not be any thing to leak other than word of mouth compared to something concrete that will clearly make it all over the interwebs.

I don't really believe that is the reason. I think stores are just saying that so those of us who are calling will shut up and stop asking questions.

Just got back from a retail center that had costco, radio shack, verizon, and best buy all in the same location. Went into all the stores and all said it'll be available next week without a specific date, but only costco had the dummy device for me to hold and feel.

Just because your buddy was told that, doesn't make it true. Seriously, if someone were to think about this logically, there is no way that a software bug preventing the Nexus from making calls has slipped to this point. Who really expects us to believe that with all of this "rigorous testing" Verizon has been putting this phone through, that nobody tried to make a call with it till Wednesday night. That's ludicrous to even consider as a possibility IMO.

That's not to say there isn't a software bug, but it sure as hell isn't that the phone won't make calls. Someone mentioned a bridge for sale somewhere a few pages back, for anyone that believes that tall one.

It doesn't make sense they would push back the release for that though, unless they could not get stock to all their corporate stores. If that is the case than that makes sense but if it was due to 3rd party retailers not getting stock that would give verizon a chance to sell more since the others won't have stock.

I would agree with this if I didn't have first hand experience with a "I Plead 5th" response on a stock question after claim he might be able to sell today if VZW suddenly decided to announce. That was an honest answer. It's very possible there is a lot more stock sitting around than it might seem from informal reports of "we don't have stock" claims when there is an unethical derective to deny existence of stock.

Agree, if that was the bug it would have been found way back and not gotten to stores and then they realize it cannot make calls. pretty sure the testers would be testing that since after all it is a phone. It is funny to see all the so called reasons people say or someone they know are told is cause of the delay.

well i can refute that with a certaintly. a good friend of mine is the manager of a "premium retailer" where vzw phones are sold. earlier this week when stories of the 9th started coming out, i text him and he told me that it was possible but that he hadnt received his stock of them yet. today i text him on the outside chance the he may be willing to sell me one and act like he didnt know of the delay, and he told me they still hadnt received any stock yet, but that he had gotten an email last night notifying him that the shipment was on the way and would be there monday.

OK so my wife caught me playing with it today Stepped out with the wife to Radio Shack for some things and I asked if they had the new Verizon phone, the nexus I think? I pretended I wasn't obsessed with the phone and knew every spec already. He says yes we do would you like to see one, I said sure and he went to the back and brought one out. I could not take pics of it but have at it. So a few observations, first it is a lot lighter in color then I expected and it wasn't much bigger then my wifes rezound but wider. It felt great in my hand but I'm a bigger guy my wife complained it was to wide for her but she like how it was lighter then her rezound. Everything else has been said, its fast, screen is beautiful but like Mr Solo I was a little underwhelmed, with that being said I am still buying it as its the best android device I have ever used.

So, you never read this, ok?

These are the many of same people who had no idea that it was NOT called the Nexus Prime a few weeks ago and who have also said that it would come out next year in beta, etc etc etc.

But now that they say they have inside info on bugs?

No, I don't think so. I think this instead:

One memo becomes the lie re-told so often.

I will say that in my town, 35k, between the premium retailer and the bestbuy there are only Nine GNexs total...4 at ther retailer and 5 at the BB...now i know it's a small town but only 9...seems a bit low...i've always thought a supply issue could definitely be the reason for the delay and VZW underestimated the demand for this device and i think they're finally realizing it

I am not really thinking they would hold it for 100% stock at all VZW retailers and I am quite sure there is BROAD availability of stock right now, even if not all premium and other 3rd parties have. Many phones lots of retailers don't get it for awhile after release.

This is by no means a negative, but the GSM version seems to have more of a curve to it. I thought the LTE version would be the same

I'm not sure how credible your source is but if that is true then maybe that could be the case. But if I were a manager of any store that sold Verizon stuff and knew my job was on the line. I don't care if it was my best friend I wouldn't sell them a phone and saying you don't have it in stock is a good was to side step that situation. I'm just saying.

But it could very well be true. I really have no way of knowing.

I just got off the phone with my local Radio Shack. I asked if they had SGN for sale, she told me to hold. Twenty seconds later she comes back and says "yes we do". Not even going to waste my time driving over there. I am sure the system won't even let them sale it. Maybe I'll stop by on the way to the gym.

went to a few stores around me, central california, costco, corporate, authirized agent, etc. they all had the phone in stock, they all couldn't sell it or let me play with it. the costco guy seemed to know more than the rest and said that it's cause of the volume problem just like the European one. I didn't argue with him that we don't have those european bands so it wouldn't be that.

Even so that is a HORRIBLE reason for a hard stop sale. This isn't a reason to stop a soft launch were it can be sold by those that do have some stock and just not make it public it is going out the door or do any ads.

Did we ever find out what the "special hours" were for tomorrow? My store opens an hour earlier. NOT trying to speculate. Just wishful thinking, and curious what VZW DOES deem worthy of opening an hour early for.

obviously with the internet its always one mans word against anothers.... but i have known this friend for almost 20 years and totally believe him. he sold me a dinc 2 days before launch and sold my wife a tb(that she wound up returning because it sucked) a day ahead of launch. its not a business relationship between him and i, we go have a beer from time to time, play fantasy football in the same league and the like. as has been pointed out by a few others, vzw likely wouldnt delay a nationwide launch because a few stores here and there havent gotten their devices yet, but like i said, sometimes we over analyze everything and the simplest answer is often the correct one.

Seriously though the curve is very subtle and you don't notice it at first. If you start to think about how perfectly the phone is fitting into your hand though you start to remember the curve is there. It is just about perfect, IMHO.

P3 said a while back(when he first started saying 12/9 which turned out to be correct) that they would be in port on 11/29-11/30, so with that being 10 days ago, i could see them not having gotten all of their stock out to all of their direct and indirect retailers by now
Im going to have to agree with you. A few of the stores I called said they had one or two. Others said they would let me know when they got them. Although that doesnt account for the reports of phones being sent back unfortunately

That is a good question. Final table of the main event? Aces would be worse because that is a life long goal. The sting would be sweetened by the fact that you would still win over $5M though. The bracelet marks your place in poker history though. Still the wait for the Nexus has been longer than the whole world series so............... I still think getting knocked out in second would suck more than this.

With the total smackdown on leaks and information Verizon has been implementing over the past week or two, it seems highly unlikely that we'll get any email or document screenshots for the remainder of the launch.
