I agree with you...............
From what i understand the quad core phones have a "5th" core that does everyday tasks and the only time the phone uses the quads is when they are needed.
This allows the phone to not use too much power. Open to correction.....

Welcome! We're glad to have you here.

I feel your pain - my Droid has completely stopped notifying me of received text messages, and also is refusing to put through about half of the ones that I send out.

I currently have a nokia phone from 2005 running verizon backup assistant.

When I get my galaxy nexus, it will immediately import my gmail contacts, correct?

Will I then need to use verizon backup assistant to import my current contacts?

Will they replace my gmail contacts? Will they all automatically be added (creating hordes of repeats)?

I wonder if that is a common thing to have in their listing. Be a pretty good burn by Costco on Verizon if they had to add the "as early as" specifically for this phone...

  • Replaced 'patched TweetDeck with 'TweakDeck'.
I want to root this phone prior to setup but . . . it doesn't look as easy as "unrevoked forever". When I rooted MY Dinc, I had to do it the hard way so I'm not averse to it but when I rooted my wife and friend's Dinc I found the Unrevoked method much easier. Anyone know of the easiest way?

Sure I know about THIS THREAD and also THIS THREAD .

EDIT*** Actually the Superboot method looks pretty easy.

By the way, quick plug for everyone - come join the Galaxy Nexus Watering Hole thread in The Lounge! All the names you know, with all the off-topic antics you can handle.

I expect it's where everyone will be after this thread closes when the GNex finally launches, but it's open now! So come hang out.

Long shot... but do you think Verizon is trying to rebrand it the Nexus Prime just like the "Droid" line?

I have seen a lot of people ordering the Diztronic/TPU case. Does this case allow you to use the docks with case on? Was just curious why it is so popular?

But I just got off the phone with him (yes, early I know but we are friends of many years). It seems the big focus now is to make 100% sure or as close as possible that all phones properly released are updated with their "new" update immediately.

That said, he had to push my appointment to Friday the 16th. He stated that was based on information he and other area managers received last evening about the OTA update not being ready for a Thursday morning release. In his words, they were told it was only a matter of hours difference and the "okay" could still come during the day Thursday.

The sales material for the in-store advertising and such wont be put up until Thursday after close and the first true sales day not actually begin until Friday. At any rate, take it with the normal grain of salt of course.

He summarized by saying that it was going to be a "soft" launch initially and that whatever the delay was from the 9th was being taken care of with the now almost frantic "must be updated" on activation. I am East coast and haven't read any of the 20th rumors so if true, that information wouldn't be available to him until he get's to his store.

I wouldn't mind that at all, I like "Nexus Prime" much better than "Galaxy Nexus," but it's far too late to change the phone's name now. Nexus Prime was likely Google's internal name for the phone before Galaxy Nexus became official, someone at Google probably goofed and left "Nexus Prime" in the text of one of the updates sent out.

I just realised something...didn't most of the relevant PR updates from Verizon go out to various other websites way before they appeared on Verizon's? Aren't we more likely to hear news on the Phandroid front page (or BGR or DL or whoever) before it pops up on the Verizon PR page?

Don't know but something seems a little "off" with this. An update referring to a supposed codename? At worst, it's a glitch but seemingly something that could be easily avoided.

I had the same problem... Called tech support, and they sent out a warranty replacement (since I pay insurance on the phone, I get extended warranty).

I know everyone is getting tired of the rebate talk, but..... I just tried to get it applied to my account and the CSR said it was Chicago only. I live in TN and see that some of you in TN and definitely outside Chicago have gotten it applied. How so? What is the magic word?

I'd hope so -- these developers are doing amazing things.

I thought this was a diaphragm container...

I believe that is true and it may be happen that way. However, I think the Xyboard PR was shown on Verizon's website first before any tech site or blog caught wind of it. Then again, those sites were probably not as quick to post anything because the Xyboard wasn't exactly a highly sought after device.

You can see here that the case gives good access to the micro-USB port:



TPU cases are made of a silicone-based material that won't stick and pull out the insides of your pockets. They're damage resistant, don't add much bulk to the phone, will accommodate the extended battery, and are less than 10 dollars to buy.

Agreed but still, left hand doesn't know what the right is doing. Who is in control Google, Samsung, Individual Carriers?

I love how the verbiage changes as we get closer:

12/8 (after delay rumors) - "Oh.. I have no doubt in my mind this will be released by December 15th. I have sources and the store manager told me.


12/12 - "Well.. I mean some of the promotions say "as soon as" so I guess it could be the 20th, too.

12/14 - "It's all Google Wallets fault! Or some other thing.. Yet ANOTHER delay! What's one more week?"

12/15: "Oh.. I mean my source DEFINITELY tells me the 20th!"


12/20: "Well Verizon did say end of the year... so they aren't lying... but my source says the 30th!"

Repeat cycle:

Oh trust me, I've had my few shares of those already. Random dialing and facebook posts. So annoying. I can't believe I still have this phone lol.

Hopefully in two days, I will have something better though

Yes, but that was on the DroidDoes page, which is owned by Lucasfilm. So that could have been more of Lucasfilm's doing than Verizon's.

Still, I'm fairly confident on the 15th. Not much time left in the year!

I hope all those that signed up on the Verizon page for information about the Nexus get the news before even the PR site. But I doubt it.

Mine happened after having it in my pocket while caught on a lake in a rain storm. Since it showed water damage I had to use insurance for the replacement, and by that time they were sending out Droid 2's instead of originals. At first I was excited to have the newer version, then I realized I wanted the old tank back.

I wouldn't go as far as drawn by an artist but I expect a major corporation to be able to use Word effectively. That's someone's job and they should have practice in creating planograms.

At this point there is so much BS floating around that every detail is carefully scrutinized for any inconsistency. How many times have we been fooled or has the attempt been made to fool us? I'm skeptical of everything that has to do with this launch.

Crappy bullets are an indication of an amateur creator. As mentioned before, if this is typical Radio Shack, so be it. For me, I'd never show anyone that doc if I created it professionally.

I mentioned the 3g to 4g promo in the doorways system at first she thought I was talking about double data, then she went to talk to a "floor manager" and came back saying it should apply automatically but since I don't believe that mess I asked if she could make a note on my account which she did, I'll double check that later. She said that the stores might not see the note so it might be better to order over the phone. Said it ended 12/31.

Meh. The Rezound still has Vigor naming here and there in the system files. I wouldn't read into it too much.

Lol. I know what you mean. My gf is literally getting pissed off at me as about every third sentence out of my mouth is talking about this phone. She's hung up on me once or twice because she got tired of it. I guess that's what you would call being obsessed with a phone. Sad thing is its not even out.
