And still no sign of any Verizon advertising, it's a travesty if they release an android flagship phone with no fanfare, and I doubt google is going to want to launch 5.0 or whatever on their network the next time. It's far enough away from the razr launch now that they could focus their marketing efforts on the nexus.
Ive said it before Ill say it again. This is the last nexus we'll see on verizon.

I need some suggestions for a decent case. Don't want to break the bank and have to spend 24.99 at the Verizon store for one. Any suggestions?

So is that $100 promo thingy only for upgrades? Gonna be buying at full retail, so I'm guessing this thing wouldn't apply. Anyone?

Same except on Thursday. However it was "communicated by regional manager verbally" was the story I got. That came from someone who I would consider a great friend. So I feel certain that he is telling me the truth. Obviously that can all change in the blink of an eye however. Also very possible the person telling him that has no actual idea as well.

Great news. I hope my local Verizon don't run out of stock by noon on Thursday, because that's when I'm going in. Seeing the "very low stock" from the equipment guide last week, plus hearing that Radioshacks are only getting 1 phone apiece is worrying me on that front.

Anyway, I'm afraid I'll jinx it, but THREE MORE DAYS!!!!

I doubt this is legit (probably just a typo by a clueless employee), but if it is... Verizon is biting off more than it can chew. 'Nuff said.

I really doubt Verizon is going to update the equipment guide with a release date until wed. evening. I don't think there will be an announcement at all, and if they decide to it won't happen until wed. evening.

Calling Verizon CSR asking questions is not going to provide any new info...they are being kept out of the loop on this release because of what happened during the last release date.

That's my opinion.....

I stopped at a Corporate Verizon and they said they weren't sure when it was coming out. The reason I stopped in Verizon was to ask about making a purchase over the phone whenever it does release since I used my last vacation day on the 9th and now have to work this Thursday. I was told no problem as long as you have a bill to on you account. I assume that means a credit card, not sure, but he checked my account and said I was good. So if any of you have to work that day (hopefully the 15th) this may be an option to make sure you get yours.

I have an avatar all ready for if/when we get an actual press release. I love doing the avatars but someone found me one for when this is all over and I can't wait to load her in and keep her there for a while.

I've called CSR twice now.. just got off the phone with one 2 mins ago. Asking about the 3g/4g 100$ upgrade.

The first CSR said she couldn't find anything.

So I called again and was put on hold this time since they were going to look.

The 2nd CSR said she found a promotion that applied to "mobile broadband device" not "phones. So afterwards i told her the promo code.

She said that possibly when you go and order the phone online enter the code and maybe it will work.

I don't live in the mid-west.. Charlotte, NC here.. but am upgrading for a 3g device.. am I out of the running? Or were people outside of the midwest lucky to get it on their accounts?

Default Corporate store CSR tells me "Thursday"

So, I called my nearest Verizon corporate store today and talked with a CSR there who said that they had the phone in stock and the launch had been delayed. He said that the phone would be available Thursday.

I know, I know yet another CSR story, but I talked with the CSR before The Source's announcement, so I thought I would chime in here.

This is my first post on this thread although I've been a forums member for a while.

No offense to the source or anyone. But we have no more confirmation today than we have for any other day. Please just stop messing with people and hyping this up. There have been at least 4 dates that you have said confirmed before. I don't have time to sift thru hundreds of pages of posts and I kind of live by the title/updates. So it's a giant bummer to see a title like that only to see that the same person that confirmed 2 other dates is now confirming a 3rd.

I live in Michigan, called 3 stores in the Ann Arbor area, and none would honor the promotion. One woman told me that VZW doesn't use promo codes and the CH4GE wasn't something that Verizon would put on a promotion... ugh!

No offense to the source or anyone. But we have no more confirmation today than we have for any other day. Please just stop messing with people and hyping this up. There have been at least 4 dates that you have said confirmed before. I don't have time to sift thru hundreds of pages of posts and I kind of live by the title/updates. So it's a giant bummer to see a title like that only to see that the same person that confirmed 2 other dates is now confirming a 3rd.
I don't get why everyone hates it so much when the Title is changed. Who cares this forum is all speculation that is the current accepted date. If you don't believe it that's fine and you are entitled to your opinion. But if Steven58 wants to change it let him it doesn't hurt.

So we have to call 611 to get this applied to our account?? I can't use that code at checkout and get anything while attempting an online order as it stands so you must have to request your account be made available to the promo?

I called *611 and talked to Regina. She could not find the promotion listed in her computer. She said if it wasn't listed under my account then I was not eligible. I asked her if there were any other promotions that I could use. I was placed on hold (2 min). She returned and said "yes, sir you can use that promotion. She said that it is in addition to my $50 loyalty discount, but expires Dec. 31. Galaxy Nexus now $149.99(if it drops this year)

Ok, gotta share (so i got the phandroid app...im officially addicted to you people...)

Anyways, did the final bit of xmas shopping for the gf. Right outside victorias secret is a vzw corporate kiosk. So i talked to the nice man there about the phone. He HAS them, but the official word for release has not trickled down. Long story short, he gave me the demo unit without my asking.

First impression: wow. It feels simply amazing in the hand, and feels as solid of construction as my OG Droid. I think the screen is phenominal. The keyboard is amazingly responsive.

Gripe? Underwhelmed by the camera. Then again, the blur i noticed was likely due to me shaking in excitement.

I will probably buy from this guy, simply because he was no-nonsense. And its close to work, can grab it before punching in!

So theres my story...

Usually when Steven or another MOD update the title they also update the OP so take a look at that and it will usually have info and or links there for you to check out.

P.S. It apparently expires on 12/31.
Good Luck! But Don't be surprised if it does not apply to the GN because the phone was not in the system when the promo was created.. Let us know, with pics?

No, it will. I told the CSR I was going to upgrade from the Dinc2 to the Gnex, and she said it would work.

Applies to all 4G phones.

You're right and it's all speculation and he can change it to whatever he wants. But you lose credibility and respect every time. He could change it to a thread about cats for all I care, I just come here for Galaxy Nexus Information and Speculation. But that means if you want to be the best and be the front runner (which at the moment we have been and regardless of my opinion's AF will probably maintain) then you should Vet your info a bit more and should post what you know not let emotions run wild and start posting what you hope/want.

It's all rumors. But taking a rumor saying "yup, looks like more rumors/info leaning towards the 15th" and translating that into "THURSDAY IS THE DAY" is a far stretch, especially regarding our knowledge of history on this phone and Verizon Wireless.

I just want the information that comes through AF to be credible and realistic. If that's not the case, then take the forums where you want. I'll just go find a better website or thread that knows how to take their emotions out of it and post the facts so that I can get as much unbiased information about when I can actually expect this phone.

I know this. and I check it. I guess I just need to remember everything is rumors. It just really excites me to see a definitive "THIS DAY IS THE DAY" and then realize it's the same ol' same ol'. O VZW, what have you done to me?

Ha! Ninja'd the Love Tunnel!

I went to Radio Shack Sunday. I asked about the GNEx. The first lady knew nothing. Then a manager came up and told me to come with him. In the back of the store was a room with a cage that was locked. Sure enough there was only one Gnex in a white box. The manager was very nice and let me play around with it. He even called his District Manager to see if he could sell it to me. I still don't have my phone so you know what they answer was.

Does Verizon offer any type of option to add the upgrade/phone amount to your monthly bill in order to split up the $300?

The rep I talked to said that his district manager is making them setup appointments for the Nexus. Not sure why either, regardless, I have one at 9 am.....I'm actually really interested to see how many people are actually there.
