Id like to quickly point out that the CSR i talked to (the one who gave me the "doorways" system info) said that they dont even have the price given to them until the day the phone is released. Not saying I doubt what anyone else says, but at this point, i think any CSR that will confirm or deny a certain date should have their information taken with a few grains of salt

Thanks zedster! Wouldn't it be funny if that really was the case (I'm going to assume it's a generic product image)? Looks like it'll fit my OG Droid pretty well.

Such anxious times we're in.
My thoughts as well. Im pretty skeptical, or at least I was hesitant to accept all of the past rumored dates as fact. With this one there is a different feel though. Even as many of us were beginning to feel the validity of the 9th there were other sources in the background on other sites and even a few here who were throwing out dates like the 12th, 15th etc. Now, here we are a few days from the 15th, and I have not seen a rumored date discussed on any credible media outlet, suggesting it will drop later than the 15th. This coupled with another day or so of silence... and we could very well be looking at a release on Thursday.

Still hesitant, but hesitantly hopeful...

Just talked to 4 CSRs the first few had no idea or said I wasn't eligible. The last one Tyler was awesome I didn't even tell him the promo code now I have 100 reasons to get it from a corporate store. Plus my living social deal to get my desk dock.

That package is either for the Droid X or Nexus, Costco accessory packs normally come with a soft case, headphones, car charger. It looks like this pack comes with nicer headphones then the normal pack. For spending $10 less then if you went to a VZ corp store the accessory pack is not the main insensitive and just icing.

So the source says it's the 15th and others think pre-orders begin tonight and the $100 promotion works for some but not others. Did I miss anything else today?

I have tried 3 different CSR's on the phone. I live in the Midwest, and NO ONE can find it for me. They all say it's for Chicago and surrounding area.

OT

Back from Alice Cooper. Good show. Wasn't a huge Alice Cooper fan prior to the concert, still not really a huge fan but he did put on a good show. He's really a creepy kinda guy.

Not trying to be debbie downer but is there any chance Steven or another MOD can help clean up the Verizon $100 discount talk. Maybe add the information to the original post so it is readily viewable.

Sorry but its getting really bad with every poster telling their story over and it is hard enough to catch up on this thread without having to sift through all that coupon talk.

Thanks guys. Like I said, I dont mean to offend anyone but I think alot of us are here for information on the phone. Thanks!

Trick is, don't mention anything about the Nexus. Just say you're up for an upgrade and before you buy a phone you want to see if you can get that coupon for $100 off a new 4g phone when switching from 3g.

My guy seemed pretty suggestive of it being a Chicago area thing. He asked "By suburb of Chicago, what do you mean?" I told him "I'm within the 4G coverage." That seemed to be enough. I think the farthest South it goes is like Kankakee - I'm not sure about West and North.

It kind of IS phone related, seeing as how we all plan to use it on the same thing! We get off topic sometimes when there's no other new news coming. That's what the OP is for, it gets updated accordingly!

Im in Southern Cali and tried. They said it is for midwest only and there was no way he could add it. He said if I was in the midwest he could do it though.

So if your in the Midwest I would definitely call up and add as you are eligible. Might have to have to throw out the "doorway" wording though as the 2nd call I made he had not heard of any promotions like that until I mentioned that. Then he said midwest only.

Sorry but its getting really bad with every poster telling their story over and it is hard enough to catch up on this thread without having to sift through all that coupon talk.

Thanks guys. Like I said, I dont mean to offend anyone but I think alot of us are hear for information on the phone. Thanks!
Mods are discussing the situation and Steven is preparing his post on this.

No reason to not get righteous discounts when available to you, ok to work with your carrier to get what's coming to you, they have a lot of discretionary ability on this sort of thing - not ok to be dishonest about it and potentially lose people their jobs.

Looks like we really are in the home stretch.

My hat's off to all of you for staying on this remarkable roller coaster!

So, if I gave one of you Midwesterners (Illinois, preferably) my phone number, could you potentially call me and wake me if the phone goes on pre-order tonight??

Its just tough pulling information about the phone when it seems like 3/4 of each page the last couple days are about the $100 discount.

Like I said im sorry to even ask but it is getting a tad cluttered with that

OK - No big update but...

I sent my rep a text (he had one waiting for me on the 9th, but texted me that morning saying he couldn't sell it yet). He confirmed the date of the 9th on the 7th as well for me.

Text to him :
Quote:
Reps are making appointments for the 15th for Nexus. Can you hold me one until I get off work?
His reply :
Quote:
You got it!
He intimated that the date is correct with his response (without saying so of course).

I understand. If you've been following the thread at all, really...you'll notice trends. So long as we're not flaming one another, it's all allowable, so long as the mods are ok with it! Besides, today we got a couple big leads saying that this week is THE week. So it hasn't ALL been coupons!

and the guy checked it out. I don't think he even typed in the code but did a search on the for the 3g to 4g promo and my account came up as eligible! He put a note on my account. Here's to hoping it gets applied when i get the GNEX!

we had a long conversation before on why the costco rep said my NE2 discount couldn't be applied at the costco kiosk, and him trying to find out of my NE2 discount could be applied to radio shack or best buy (he didn't have an answer for those) but noted to me that his note sheet specifically said costco couldn't redeem the new every 2 discount.

anywho...long story short...IT WORKED FOR ME...it was noted on my account that I was eligible for the $100 discount. I'm SO hoping it goes through!!!!

I'm in the SF/Bay area (specifically inner east bay) doesn't hurt to call!

I hear you, honestly.

Please rest assured that we seem to be in the home stretch. People monitoring the web are likely to chime in here or via our IRC channel.

If a release trigger or release news or ordering news happens that's in any way significant, one of us (if Steven is not available) will update the OP and the title in as close to real time as our fingers will allow.

Looks like whoever reported that they got $100 off a future Nexus is famous!

Actually, I want to receive calls in the middle of the night where all I can hear is someone's labored breathing. I think that would be special. Who wants to share the experience with me?
