Just think, when you sign up for your new ATT plan just drop $200 on a new iphone and sell that as well as your Verizon iphone and you can cover an extremely large amount of the costs involved in doing it that way. Im jealous. I only have a TBOlt to sell (might get $100),

Checked the clearwater verizon store on gulf to bay and all I could get was coming soon. Guy took my number and said he would call if he hears anything. He didn't admit to any stock but said that they had been getting accessories so it should be very soon.

i went to the clearwater BB and they actually had a notice up saying the nexus was not not released/not available and was coming soon. Presumably to keep people from conning their clerks into sellling them one.

I'm worried about major disappointment, again.
In reno costco and Verizon Authorized resellers are saying thursday. Bestbuy and Verizon Corp wont say anything. I have checked at a few different for each. Resellers here are supposed to get stock today.

Also I have not gotten the $100 despite having an 847 number I guess its because I'm not in Chicago atm. I have gotten 2 different $50 coupons 1 from a reseller and one from Verizon. One is for any smart phone and one is for any phone.

The way this launch has been handled with the 9th being pretty firm and most having stock, I can't see how the last minute no sell not working 100% could be blamed on an employee or 3rd party retailer.

1. They didn't think it was coming out Thursday or Friday (15-16). There is nothing in the system that show it and one of the CSR's said "We always get more than 2-3 days notice before a phone is released. Also, I haven't had any training on the device yet, and we always get training on a device before it is released."

2. When asked about the $100 Promo. I was told it was only for the Chicago area because they want more people on 4G, and that there is no 4G in my area (It stops about 20 miles up the road).
oops... I forgot....and NO 4G!

So, lets see: NO current working phone, NO new phone, and NO discounts. If it weren't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all.

Alright, just got done texting the CSR I know...

Me: Any word on Thursday being official?
Him: They pushed it back again
Me: To when?
Him: They didnt set a date
Me: Anything more you can tell me? Why it's delayed? And when you heard this?
Him: I just found out when I asked my inventory lady. And they didn't give any reason.
Me: Alright thanks. This sucks.

Anyone else hear anything like this recently?? With nobody reporting similar things, I'm not sure what to think of this..

Yeah, will all due respect to Scott, that Bloomington store guy posted a pic of the GSM version.

Not saying it's BS, but not concrete, either.

Highly doubt it. It felt better in my hand than my rezound. Same width but much thinner and just a bit taller.

That makes total sense, that they want to get us, who are in heavily populated areas, like the Midwest and the Northeast, off 3g and onto 4g. That clarifies the reason. Thank you.

Ugh, I donít know if the CSR was flat out lying, or just ignorant. But Cheetara has confirmed to me that training has been done a while ago, and that many tech support reps have had hands-on training on it.

Default Reserved one :d

Okay, so for what it's worth, here is my story:

After reading through this thread, I decided to forget calling corporate stores and go straight to third-party retailers. Although they may be less reliable, they usually know their stuff. I called two local ones, no information. Then one of them called back (it's called Go Wireless and it's a verizon authorized retailer) and said "hey, i just gave you some incorrect information. my manager just informed me that we will be selling the galaxy nexus this thursday." anyways, the conversation continued, and he said if I went to the store and bought a $50 gift card, one of the THREE they get shipped in will be reserved specifically for me. with my name on it, guaranteed. So i took him up on the offer, payed $50, and now I have one reserved for me for Thursday morning! I'm gonna go when they open at 10 AM. He promised to call me if anything changes, so I will let you guys know...

Hmmmmm, I think these 2 different builds are the hold up. One from Samsung and one from Google. Nexus means pure android and the buyers of a Nexus expect that. Google found out Samsung had a build that would not except a Google update, well I don't see them accepting that. The LTE version built later has this same Samsung build and now have to fix it before release and that is the hold up. I don't see a retailer holding up sales this time of year and many have pointed out this make no sense for VZW to do that. Maybe it is not them at all. This seems much more plausible. Can the current owners verify what build they have, Samsung or Google and then again verify after OTA (probably 4.0.2 or later) if that is a Google build. If we found out that I think we may have an answer for these last minute delays during the best retail shopping season.

What is news to them? Thursday as the release or it being pushed? I thought the love tunnel reported Thursday was a go?

I feel ya bro. I called the South Bend stores as well today If a email really came from Verizon today, It must have just went to the store managers because the reps aren't in the loop, unless they have a cool manager that tells them but I couldn't find one either.

Hmm, I see the screen that you're bringing up, but unfortunately it doesn't mention the 3G to 4G credit that the VZW rep said she'd add yesterday to my account. Hope it works on Thursday.

I just called two corporate stores in Houston. They said they haven't heard anything new and probably won't know the date until the day it goes on sale. Damn!

  4. There are no promos in effect that will apply to the Nexus if and when it comes out other than any loyalty discounts you already have on your account.......... PERIOD.
I have made an donkey of my self before and am not shy about doing it again but I am still calling BS on the so called $100.00 and the fact it will apply to the Nexus.
Put your pics of the mailers where you mouths are...... show me the UN-photoshopped pics. Screen shots of your account summary screens indicating the credits?

I want to believe.
I want you to get $100.00 off on the Nexus.
My findings indicate otherwise.

Meh, whatever.

I don't see why anybody has to prove anything to you. If they get it, they get it. If they don't, they don't.

I like all the reports of CSRs saying "We always know when a release is coming two or more days ahead of time and we don't know anything yet!" and some others saying "We probably won't know till the day of".

It's like Verizon is just one long crazy train.

I was also told the exact same thing today...right along with "we are not sure when Samsung will ship these phones you might want to visit their website".

Texted the Best Buy customer service rep that I know. She's the one that tried to sell me the Gnex on Friday and who sent me the screenshot of the internal memo that I posted.

I asked her if the Gnex was in her computer today. She said no but they had a team meeting this morning going over product. They were told that they were given the go ahead for sales to begin Thursday.

Simple, Login to MyVerizon. If you have the discount it will be there.

On the 1st page I have a "Click Here with an Arrow".
Under that is the second screen showing the discount.

No Discount on your MyVerizon, no Discount. Note on your account = a note on your account.



Weird... I don't seem to have a $50 credit, yet some phones like the RAZR are priced at $249 rather than $299. iPhones don't seem to have this pricing though. Does anyone understand how this pricing works? I really don't understand the NE2 or any other discounts or how to know when I have them. As far as I know, I just have an upgrade available on the primary line of my account.

By the way, this story seems to specify that it's only the GSM Nexii that have the differing builds. Will this be the same for our LTE version? Do we not have the information yet?

FWIW!

So.. Central MA Area.. local BJ's.. just stopped in after work. Saw the manager at the kiosk he goes "Got any questions sir?" "Yeah, am I gonna see you Thursday for a Nexus launch?" "Haven't hear anything yada yada".

After awhile of bs talk he was getting off shift/leaving. I went to go buy some stuff.. on my way out he pops up right next to me and says "Just got word from my operations girl, the 15th is a go!"

I nearly died, this guy runs 5 corporate stores in the area.. seems like a good guy. He "admitted" (take for what it's worth) that he knew they were debating to kick it back another week (NEXT Thursday).

But he JUST got the word. He said "well I guess I'll see you Thursday.." He sure will.

totally with you on this... especially when they get offended over a guy looking at their cleavage. you put on the shirt, you looked in the mirror, you liked what you saw, and you left the house wearing it. obviously you wanted SOMEONE to look, or you would have chosen something else.

Maybe the tech support guys have. But he was on the sales side and just stated that from the sales standpoint you need to know about a phone before you can talk it up, and that he has not had any sales training on it yet.

I understand his point:

VW: Thanks for calling VW - How can I help you?
Customer: I'd like to purchase a phone.
VW: Sure, I can help you with that. What phone are you interested in?
Customer: The Galaxy Nexus. What can you tell me about it?
VW: You can make calls, text, and play games That's all I know about it. I suggest you visit the Android Forums for more information.

Chiming in from Northern VA. Texted with my sales guy at the local corporate store. He says they have about 30 devices in stock, but they are locked up in the back. Says that he's been reading about a Thursday release on the web, but hasn't heard anything about it at this particular store. Man I hope Thursday is the day...

Not saying it's BS, but not concrete, either.

There isn't a big difference between the 2 phones I don't see this being an issue.

So I'm reading up in preparation to switch to the android ecosystem with my nexus, whenever it launches. FNG question pops up!

There are multiple app stores apparently. Are they mutually exclusive? Do I have to choose Amazon's vs. Google's or something like that? Or can you have any apps, regardless of their provenance, loaded simultaneously?

As a side note, the size of the DroidX and the Gnex are similar, however the screen protector for the Gnex is way bigger. I think I will love getting a device that fully takes advantage of the size of the device.
Did you get the Oleophobic screen protector for the GNex from Steinheil?

Here's my thoughts on Thursday and why we're probably ok.

It seems like all the "confirmed for the 15th" are coming from NON-Corporate stores. I think there have been a couple from corporate stores, but it seems like the majority are resellers of some kind (be it 3rd part, RS, BB, etc).

It sounds like an email was sent out to these resellers indicating the 15th date. Whether it is firm or just tentative is anyone's guess until we see a screen shot of it. But it sure looks like Verizon is intending to release on the 15th.

So, why are the corporate stores playing dumb? It seems very credible that they received a gag order. How much district managers or store managers are pushing their CSRs to keep their mouth shut would account for some stores denying stock or any release information, while others are hinting at Thursday and still others are flat out indicating the 15th.

So I think the 15th is the new INTERNAL target, and VZW has informed their resellers, but it is still subject to change (as was the 9th). So I don't think we'll know for sure until the morning of the 15th when reports either come in indicating people on the east coast were successful or that they could not yet buy it.

I fully expect to NOT hear anything reliable until the VZW corporate stores open on the 15th. I'm cautiously optimistic for the 15th, but I'm still not going to hold my breath.
