If I post my address could someone knock on my door and wake me if the phone goes pre-order tonight? J/K

Ok folks, been lurking for a while. Just got home after going to a premium retailer and then the corporate store. Premium retailer said they were just able to order this evening and sell on Thursday, but everyone here already knew this.

Ok, so I have a big question here though.

My dad, sister, and brother and I are all on the same plan. My sister's phone broke in March and she used my upgrade, so I get to use her upgrade, which is available now.

I was wondering: her phone is 3G, mine is not. Can I get the promotion applied to her number and then use it on my Nexus? I would be going from no data package (no internet) to 4G, but since it is her upgrade, could that be applied?

My dad's upgrade is also available, and my brother's phone is dead. Both of them already have 3G. Can we get the promotion applied to my dad's line and have my brother use his upgrade and use the $100 promotion?

Some of you are going too far lying to to CSR's and trying to cheat your way to extra promos or getting things you shouldn't. If the conversation goes south and morally disintegrates into this type of thing, we will delete such posts and seriously infract such posters. Android Forums, in NO WAY advocates "sticking it to the man" or taking advantage of corporations in any way. If you are eligible for the discount, go for it. If not, pay the extra $100. DON'T CHEAT! If you are going to cheat in any way, then don't talk about it or promote it here.

If I may get personal? When we cheat others, we are really cheating ourselves out of talking moral high ground and out of growth in character. I don't believe $100 is a good price to sell my character for. Neither should you.

Bottom line: Don't do it. If you do, don't talk about it here.


Now, having said that, I want to share MY personal testimony of HOW I GOT THE 100 DOLLAR DISCOUNT! Yup! I did!

To make a long story short, I want to summarize by saying that it turned out that I was talking to a CSR who dabbled in developing. He has a DX2 and described the super cool boot animation he was developing for his phone. He and I hit it off and I invited him here to talk a look around. If you see this and are visiting, I WARMLY WELCOME YOU and want to tell you how much of a joy it was to share that long conversation we had about the phones we love so much!

Firstly, I want to tell you all that I was dead honest with him. I told him who I was. I told him that I started this mega thread (that's when he said he knew AF and would check it out!)

At first he couldn't find the discount by code. Then I told him about the 3g to 4g promotion title. He put me on hold then found it. He told me it is ONLY FOR THE NORTHEAST AND THE MIDWEST which is something we suspected. We suspected it was regional. I'm in the Northeast, so it was a go.

I told him that I did NOT have the mailer but I was hoping for it. I told him that I found out about it here. So, what he did was to put a note in my account for the CSR in the store, about the 100 dollar discount. The only thing is that the phone has to "come out by the 31st" he said. Fine, it's coming out this Thursday, right? RIGHT?

So yeah, he and I became fast friends. We shared stories and had each other laughing. People like this man are why I am a Verizon fanboy. I don't really care what's going on with Nexus politics, but I'll tell you this. Everytime... every.time that I've had an issue or a need with VZW service or needed help, Verizon has ALWAYS come through to help me.

Moral of the story: Take the high ground. I didn't cheat. I was open and honest about this promotion. I got it. I even told him about you wonderful people who chipped in toward the purchase of a Nexus for me. (I'm still choked up by that... I have no words... thank you. thank you.) I got the discount and I have your gift. I'll be getting a Nexus with some nice accessories. Can anyone say "Dock?"

So will this discount everyone is clamoring over valid on on-line orders? I live in a smaller city and we have no corporate stores nearby. I'm not counting on being able to walk into one of our authorized retailers and picking one up on day one.

Does anyone know of the $100 3G to 4G discount will work when buying a 4G phone online?

I live the in Midwest and I am planning to call shortly but I'm hoping it works for online sales as well.

Thanks man.

You guys have done an unbelievable job with this thread. I couldnt even imagine. lol

Hopefully it is coming to close soon. Not that I want it to but we all deserve to play with our new Nexus after the past couple months.

I actually had to back away from this thread as we had 15 pages of people lying. Like.. what has this world come to? Some of us don't get it.. so stop lying and just deal with it.

The way it was described to me was that you were eligible if the upgrade line was 3G and you were going to use it on a 4G device.

Ok this is how I am looking at this...a woman's point of view...


For the last 2+ months I have been cruising this forum looking for any scrap of news that this phone is going to release soon INSTEAD of what I'm usually doing...


Which is cruising the Internet looking for new pairs of shoes to adopt into a loving home.

VERIZON PLEASE! Do you really want to leave another innocent pair of shoes homeless for the holidays??????

Oh the humanity!!!!

Sounds like a plan. I'll also take your SSN, driver's license, etc. just to be sure you know when this thing drops.

Well I got a price from the csr I chatted with so does that mean pre-order tonight?

Firstly, I want to tell you all that I was dead honest with him. I told him who I was. I told him that I started this mega thread (that's when he said he knew AF and would check it out!)

At first he couldn't find the discount by code. Then I told him about the 3g to 4g promotion title. He put me on hold then found it. He told me it is ONLY FOR THE NORTHEAST AND THE MIDWEST which is something we suspected. We suspected it was regional. I'm in the Northeast, so it was a go.

I told him that I did NOT have the mailer but I was hoping for it. I told him that I found out about it here. So, what he did was to put a note in my account for the CSR in the store, about the 100 dollar discount. The only thing is that the phone has to "come out by the 31st" he said. Fine, it's coming out this Thursday, right? RIGHT?

So yeah, he and I became fast friends. We shared stories and had each other laughing. People like this man are why I am a Verizon fanboy. I don't really care what's going on with Nexus politics, but I'll tell you this. Everytime... every.time that I've had an issue or a need with VZW service or needed help, Verizon has ALWAYS come through to help me.

Moral of the story: Take the high ground. I didn't cheat. I was open and honest about this promotion. I got it. I even told him about you wonderful people who chipped in toward the purchase of a Nexus for me. (I'm still choked up by that... I have no words... thank you. thank you.) I got the discount and I have your gift. I'll be getting a Nexus with some nice accessories. Can anyone say "Dock?"

Aren't you getting your nexus for free? Maybe you will actually make $100; you deserve much more than that for putting up with all of us!

So, I take it New Jersey is considered the Northeast then? This is fantastic news. Hopefully my section of Jersey qualifies, I wasn't going to bother the CSRs with this, but now I've got to give it a shot.

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!
Same can be said for all the movie and football talk

I just called customer service and she told me that I could upgrade early but it would have to be done over the phone. Has anyone else ran into this issue? I am fairly sure that many people have just got the early upgrade noted on their account so they can walk into a corporate store and buy the phone. The CSR told me I could try and walk into a corporate store and see if a manager would let me upgrade early. I would like to think that upgrading a couple weeks early wouldn't really be a problem but I don't know the normal policy of the stores.

Android Forums, in NO WAY advocates "sticking it to the man" or taking advantage of corporations in any way. If you are eligible for the discount, go for it. If not, pay the extra $100. DON'T CHEAT! If you are going to cheat in any way, then don't talk about it or promote it here.

If I may get personal? When we cheat others, we are really cheating ourselves out of talking moral high ground and out of growth in character. I don't believe $100 is a good price to sell my character for. Neither should you.

Bottom line: Don't do it. If you do, don't talk about it here.


Now, having said that, I want to share MY personal testimony of HOW I GOT THE 100 DOLLAR DISCOUNT! Yup! I did!

To make a long story short, I want to summarize by saying that it turned out that I was talking to a CSR who dabbled in developing. He has a DX2 and described the super cool boot animation he was developing for his phone. He and I hit it off and I invited him here to talk a look around. If you see this and are visiting, I WARMLY WELCOME YOU and want to tell you how much of a joy it was to share that long conversation we had about the phones we love so much!

Firstly, I want to tell you all that I was dead honest with him. I told him who I was. I told him that I started this mega thread (that's when he said he knew AF and would check it out!)

At first he couldn't find the discount by code. Then I told him about the 3g to 4g promotion title. He put me on hold then found it. He told me it is ONLY FOR THE NORTHEAST AND THE MIDWEST which is something we suspected. We suspected it was regional. I'm in the Northeast, so it was a go.

I told him that I did NOT have the mailer but I was hoping for it. I told him that I found out about it here.

I live in the SF/Bay Area, and my phone convo was legit as can be. He searched for it, didn't say the promo was only for the midwest and quickly added a note to my account saying I was eligible. I in no way deceived him, and was very courteous to him. I say thats a legit way of having a note be put on my account.

The VZW Website just changed...No more RAZR or BOGO...Account analysis has taken their place...but who knows...they aren't advertising a Phone on the homepage, first time in awhile IIRC? Maybe they are preparing for midnight preorders!

If the verizon website already changed, would there be any reason for it to change again? Unless it changes around 3:00 AM EST.

So I've been following this thread for quite some time...looooooong time lurker, first time posting. Was admittedly too lazy to post, but after seeing the $100 discount tip, and successfully getting it to work (I guess we'll just wait and see if it actually does work), I figured I should post my thanks to you guys and gals on here. So thanks to all that posted it. For those that didn't get the $100, I started with a chat online (asked the rep to note my account) and followed it up with a call. Of course, the phone rep said she didn't see any notes from the chat rep, but luckily I took a screenshot of the chat box (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) I can't post an image of the chat, since it has my personal info in it. Here's a quick cut n paste though:

Toya : Hello. Thank you for visiting our chat service. May I help you with your order today?
You: yes, I saw someone that received flyer in the mail for $100 off a 4G smartphone
You: can you tell me if i'm eligible?
Toya : I will be glad to assist you with the upgrade
Toya : Yes you do have 1 line ready for an upgrade.
You: yes it should be for the droid incredible
You: so if i upgrade to a 4g phone, it will be $100 off?
Toya : Did the promo flyer come with a code?
You: yes i think it was CH4GE
Toya : Okay you would have to contact customer care so that they can enter in the promo code would you like the number?
You: yes please...so that is a valid code?
Toya : Yes it is.
You: ok thank you
Toya : Your very welcome.
You: is there any way you can make a note on my account? It's just that i've been told different things by different representatives before, especially at a verizon store
You: I just want to make sure that the discount will be applied when i buy a phone
Toya : Sure.

Here's a new and crazy story for you. I call up to try and get the $100 promo and strike out. CSR was really nice about it and tried her best to see if any of what she found applied to me. Next I try to see if she can at least move my NE2 up from the 27th. Nada. Can't even get that moved up a lousy 2 weeks.

So they while I'm talking to her I mention that I get no service while I'm at work. We go through all the usual stuff with her looking up trouble reports and tower locations for my work location and she find nothing. At this point she transfers me to tech support and she goes through a couple questions with me about resetting the phone and if I have trouble anywhere else. I tell her that it just at work and that everyone else there with Verizon has no signal either. This is where it gets interesting.

She offers to send me a refurb replacement or do an early upgrade with her on the spot. I tell her I'm waiting for the the Galaxy Nexus and I don't want to upgrade until it is released. This is where she proceeds to tell me that Sprint is getting it first and she doesn't know when Verizon is getting it. Those were her exact words. At this point I'm like what? Then she proceeds to try again to push me to do an upgrade. I politely told her that I'm hearing that Verizon is getting it first and very soon and that I'm not interested in upgrading to anything but the Nexus and this is where the call ended.

Realizing how little Verizon lets its employees know but this is a 2nd tier tech support person telling me Sprint is getting it first. How crazy is that?

Does anyone have any idea if the extended battery/cover will fit the Diztronic case??

I ordered it from Amazon like two weeks ago and love the look and feel of it but I want to pick up the extended battery. Anyone know??

Yeah, I have my upgrade in February, I plan on just going in and being nice and polite and telling them how BADLY i want this phone. They did it for me when I got the Palm Pre Plus, I remember that.

Ok guys, it's been fun. But unfortunately, it's time for me to cuddle up with my pillows so there's some fuel in the tank for a workout early. Special thanks to scottg96 for being an awesome dude.

VERIZON PLEASE! Do you really want to leave another innocent pair of shoes homeless for the holidays??????

Oh the humanity!!!!
This is right on so many levels!

We even have a Lounge thread to emphasize the importance of the concept -

Post your shoes! :D

Here's a snap of mine from that very thread -






A dad of a friend of mine was talking about all of the things he was still pursuing 20 years after retirement. I loved this guy! When I asked him what possessed to grab a new Harley as his age, he had this to say -

You only walk through life once - so wear the Big Shoes!

I offer this in his memory to all of you who are about to be high-steppin with your new Nexus!

And look at where the "(With Galaxy Nexus)" begins; right in between 12/12 and 12/19! That means that it is coming this Thursday!

So they while I'm talking to her I mention that I get no service while I'm at work. We go through all the usual stuff with her looking up trouble reports and tower locations for my work location and she find nothing. At this point she transfers me to tech support and she goes through a couple questions with me about resetting the phone and if I have trouble anywhere else. I tell her that it just at work and that everyone else there with Verizon has no signal either. This is where it gets interesting.

She offers to send me a refurb replacement or do an early upgrade with her on the spot. I tell her I'm waiting for the the Galaxy Nexus and I don't want to upgrade until it is released. This is where she proceeds to tell me that Sprint is getting it first and she doesn't know when Verizon is getting it. Those were her exact words. At this point I'm like what? Then she proceeds to try again to push me to do an upgrade. I politely told her that I'm hearing that Verizon is getting it first and very soon and that I'm not interested in upgrading to anything but the Nexus and this is where the call ended.

Realizing how little Verizon lets its employees know but this is a 2nd tier tech support person telling me Sprint is getting it first. How crazy is that?
Unbelievable, such disconnect within this company

Looks exactly the same as it did an hour ago to me. XyBoard, Online Holiday Deals, Accessory Deals, Certified Pre-Owned, and Razr are in the scrolling ads on the main page.

Am I missing something?

Hey guys. I just got back from a LONG day at work at oh...what is this? Thursday you say?

HAAAAAAALELUIAH!

Anyways, I stopped at a Radioshack on the way home and got my first in-hands look at the SGN! The guy said they were not allowed to sell it until release day. Since I'm up for NE2, I didn't think I should ask them to reserve it for me. But man, I wish I could have.

First off, I LOVE the look, with the exception of one thing. The battery door. In every picture I've seen, the battery door had a smooth kind of matte finish to it. The one I had had a carbon fiber-y texture to it. Not a huge deal, just something I wasn't expecting.

The guy said he couldn't turn it on, no big deal. But the other thing I noticed was how incredibly light it was. I asked the guy to make sure it wasn't a dumby version, because it must have weighed half as much as my BBStorm! Even my girl was like "Wow that's light." She was thoroughly impressed even though she's made fun of me for weeks for fawning over the SGN. I think I may have converted her .

I am so epically ready for this phone. And ya know what? I don't even care if it turns out Thursday doesn't happen (we've all heard seen that song and dance before right?). I am prepared to wait until whenever it is this thing comes out. It WILL be my next phone. Hopefully Thursday morning!

I have seen the light, and it has made me a believer again! All Hail Nexus!

VZ uses a lot of SHTML (server side html) which since it just rendered from your request will show the current time, static webpages will show the date of their last edit. Again to see it you will have to turn on redirect warning

That's the last time the page was refreshed by your browser........do it again and it will show you the last time you refreshed......


I opened the web page source and there's no date to be found in the source.
