I just went to VZWs mobile site on my phone and then went to the accessories page. It automatically identified that I was on my Incredible, but allowed me to change devices. To my surprise one of the available options was the Gnex.

Rep: The what?
Me: I wanted to know if you know when you will be selling the galaxy nexus for verizon.
Rep: First of all, I can't understand you. Second of all, NOBODY knows when the phone will be available. There was only one sold and it was sold by accident somewhere in Kansas, so you can't get one now.
Me: I never asked you to sell me one today, I just asked if you know when you'll have it.
Rep: I don't know
Me: thanks, bye

I wasn't rude or demanding at any point, I'm just guessing either other people have been asking her all day or just being really demanding regarding a release date. I thought the whole thing was funny because I work with customers everyday and would never act like that no matter how many times I was asked the same question, but I guess some people are just gangsta.

Lol if anyone else calls there let me know how it goes.
Calling, for teh lulz

after reading from one member last night that a csr he spoke to on the phone told him TN was eligible for the $100 rebate on a 4g phone, i sent vzw an email trying to see if i could get the coupon added to my account in the notes or otherwise. i received an email back not only stating that i was not eligible for any coupons, but that my number all together was not eligible for an upgrade although on vzw's site it clearly says i have been eligible since september. at this point i called *611 just to make sure that i wasnt going to have any trouble getting an upgrade and i wasnt misunderstanding my eligibility from their site, and the very nice girl i was speaking with(angelica) told me that the email was not true and in fact 3 of my lines were eligible for an upgrade, with a 4th line having the early upgrade for a fee option(we have 5 lines). after i got that squared away, i then asked about getting the discount i had originally emailed about. after about 15 minutes of "let me look at this and let me ask someone else", she finally came back on the phone and said that i was indeed eligible for the extra $100 coupon, and that it was now noted on my account and i would have no trouble redeeming it when i purchase a new phone BIG SHOUT OUT TO EVERYONE SPREADING THE REBATE! i hope others can cash in on the deal, its at least worth a shot because my state(TN) is not considered a midwest state but they added the coupon anyway. good luck

I was also told in the email that they have the other colors listed as well if anyone is interested in them. I would imagine you would have to email them about ordering the other colors since they are not yet on the order page.

Colors/Styles:
Matte Back Black

High Gloss Black

I got the High Gloss Black off Amazon last week. Nice quality, I have owned a few of there cases for other phones.

THANK YOU HAN!

I called Verizon back with the CH4GE code you posted and got the $100 3G to 4G discount added to my account. He asked me where I got it and o told him a friend got it in a mailer they sent out.

Edit: And FWIW the guy told me it will be out on Friday.

Grrrr, I just can't get Verizon to give me this discount! Called several times today, and each time I've been told that my account has to be "targeted" for the mailer and the 3G-4G discount, and that they can't just be added. Frustrating.

I was panicking due to a rumor that the phone being on the iconic list would prevent me from upgrading to it, and I started out by saying "I know you can't talk about the Nexus, won't even acknowledge that it exists... but I just need to know about" blah blah blah. It seemed to throw him off his "scripted response" and he started talking to me like I was his friend. He told me that he's just as much in the dark as we are and that he hasn't had an hour go by without 12 people calling in asking about the Nexus. He said that all they were told was that the 9th is no longer the date, and not to sell the phone until the 15th no matter what.
It really surprises me how many people really want the Nexus and nothing else. A lot of people were talking about sending countless emails to higher ups at VZW and things as ridiculous as petitions to release the Nexus back in November. I always said there weren't enough people to make Verizon hurry up and get the phone out, but I'm surprised how many people are interested in the Nexus, even with barely any information officially released. If that rep is telling the truth then I have no doubt Verizon knows this will be a hot phone and will sell like crazy.

Hey all.

Been lurking for the past couple days as tensions rose.

I see I did not miss much, though the 15th seams to be picking up some steam. After all these ups and downs, sadly, I am still pessimistic about the whole situtation. I guess I will "Believe it when I see it" I will be more comfortable seeing an actual press release or something not word of mouth. Not to discredit any sources or anything, just after the 9th and all the other ups and downs, well, I am sure many can understand

On another note, the rezound and razr has crossed my mind once again and I have decided neither device is for me.

I realy hope the Galaxy Nexus is worth waiting for. Other wise this roller coaster ride will have been in vain, not only for me but a mess of other people out there.

A better camera then my DX would be welcome. I have HDR+ so that should help. Video, would be okay, but I don't use that much. I like to watch the weather post "live updates" when the weather gets crazy around here.

NFC / Google wallet / ISIS don't really matter to me. I just want a phone that I can tinker with and not grow tired off a few months after I get it.

@ Steven - personal opinion incoming. I think you should have fun with the title and say Cheetara and Love Tunnel have leaked the information. Imagine the looks on people's faces reading that!

I was informed by my rep who notated my account:

It is NOT a promotional code that can be applied to accounts, it is a POINT OF SALE promotion, as in it can only be applied at the time you are purchasing the phone.

Not sure if that's true or not but the girl who put the note on my account stated as such.

Damn. Doubting I can use that CH4GE code depending how picky VZW is going to be about it since it said it's for people who haven't upgraded within the last 6 months. Since my Bionic was a refund within the 14-day period, I'd prolly have to fully refund the Rezound, switch to my Droid 2, and hope it'd apply. Were it to work with my restored New Every Two it'd be worth it. Rezound came out to $249 for me as it is. Called my local BJs and the rep said that all they had were the dummy Nexus units out, which doesn't exactly show me the awesomeness of the screen quality. Oh, the humanity!

So guys and gals, will Costco have the Nexus on Thursday (assuming that date holds)? I would love to get it for $289 with the bundle, but I need to know:

a. will they have it Thursday or would I have to wait?
b. will they honor both my NE2 promo price ($299 at the store or whatever) AND my $50 discount (e.g. Razr/Rezound show as $249 on vzw.com)?

Is that additional $50 discount ONLY for online? Or would I get it in the VZW corporate store if I wind up going to the VZW store and not Costco. Thanks in advance!

Embarrassingly, yes. I like to have a unique name for the Bluetooth device ID, etc. My Nexus will be called Quorra after the Tron: Legacy character. Like the Nexus, Quorra was a software entity, and both wear a lot of blue...

I am a sad, strange little man.

In other news, a helpful Radio Shack rep brought out a dummy Nexus for me to try today. Any concerns about the size, thichkness and materials are erased from my mind. I was especially pleasantly surprised by the grippy material on the back. Very nice!

Strange - maybe (but it seems we all have a bit of strange to us here) , sad - doubtful.

3g to 4g $100 mail in rebate code "CH4GE" is valid (for those skeptical like myself), and expires December 31st. I had the CSR note it on my account, and it can be redeemed either through *611 telesales, or in a Verizon Corporate Store.

I called *611 and asked them about the "Midwest regional 3g to 4g $100 off rebate", they knew nothing. Gave him the code and he instantly found it, gave me the details, and was on my way.

Also, I had 2 CSRs CONFIRM that the device was planned and supposed to launch Friday the 9th, but due to the outage, it was pushed back. They wouldn't say when it was supposed to launch, but my local store said the 15th.

To summarize it all up: Call *611, press 0, say "upgrade", then ask about the "Midwest regional 3g to 4g upgrade promo for $100 off rebate." They will search, most likely not find anything, then give them the code "CH4GE". They will find it, and tell you it must be applied when you purchase the device, but you can have them note your account with the code.

Just like that, the Nexus becomes even better

no disrespect to the Source

but isn't this exactly how it went last week?

I'm sorry but i still need VZW to confirm it. Don't get me wrong i hope it is Thursday...but i'm just saying. Lets all calm down and remember that things could change.

So...another question for those more familiar with Verizon's practices than I am...

My husband has a $30 off thingy on his line (loyalty discount?)

Can I use it on the Nexus when I add a line? He's never gonna pay more than $0 for a phone anyway, and I assume he can't get that $30 as an account credit or something.

I just called and it went exactly the same way. They also said it was eligible on all my lines that are due for an upgrade. So now I am saving $200 on phones for me and my wife. I'm in Ohio.

I've tried twice to get the 3G to 4G $100 off. No dice so far.

First CSR said no way.

Second one tried to figure it out but didn't get the approval from her supervisor. She was told that the promotion is ONLY for Chicago.

I'll try again tonight. Denver is in the Midwest, right?

Tried calling with the CH4GE code. The lady was nice and checked for me said she could only find a promotion for the 3g to 4G in the Midwest not in my area (East Coast). It was worth a try.

EXACTLY why it should NOT have a date or day in the title unless it is from a VZW press release. It is all speculation, careless, reckless reporting of speculation.

What's funny is quite a few people have said that CSR's told them Friday. Just got off the phone with VZW, trying to get the $100 off promotion (to no avail mind you) , and I told the guy I was wanting the Nexus. I said I heard Thursday, he suggested Friday.

I realize that means nothing. Just passing it on.

I believe you have to use his upgrade to get that discount. They will let you use another lines upgrade on the same account for any phone.

preparing for a nasty, boring, non-release Thursday AGAIN!

hoping for an awesome, orgasmic, rocking release day on Thursday.

I just lost faith in all sources, not because the sources are wrong as they provide the intel that they have, its just that VZW keeps changing that intel.
