Ok, so let me get this straight. We are ~24 hours from one of the largest Android launches in US history (A Nexus on Verizon with ICS, a major OS overhaul) and yet we've received no official word from Verizon, no advertising, nothing on their website, no PRs, conflicting stories from resellers and CSRs, etc. etc. Color me skeptical. I hope I'm wrong, but I suspect there are going to be MANY disappointed folks in here tomorrow.

It is rubbery.. but it has firmness, or almost a little backbone to it.

Yeah, I have had really good customer service from them... I have a TPU case for my Bionic w/ extended battery and, as far as I'm concerned, the case is perfect!

Will stuff like the dock and the tpu case still work with the extended battery? I know it barely adds any bulk to it.. but just a little can make a big difference.

Stupid Hartford only has a Wireless Zone - Verizon Reseller downtown. Chances are they will have it in, but I won't be able to use my new every two discount which would suck. Stupid boring Hartford!

Checking in on the Nexy-Eve from the west coast....gonna keep watch on the PR and the site....really need this phone soon, as my OG knows its being replaced, and totally dying.
Is there anyone else in the Santa Barbara, CA area? Just want to make sure I will be the first in line....
(another VZW store story...) 1 of the local corp stores has called 3 times in the last 2 days to let me know a phone is waiting for me on Thurs....

I believe this was mentioned before, but the press release for the Bionic was September 7 and released on the 8th. I couldn't tell from the PR what time it was released though.

Good Morning all! I have been getting ready to retire my DroidX for the nexus and was considering how to transfer everything stored on the sd card to the Nexus. I am thinking about using Dropbox or maybe WiFi Explorer. Any one else have any thoughts?

I don't know about the dock, but I'll be able to tell you about the extended battery just as soon as I get my Nexus!! In any case, I've already spoken with the owner of TPU Cases, and he will be producing an extended battery case if the current case doesn't work with the extended battery. My take on it is - how can you go wrong for the price? (mine cost me $9.90 with free shipping - they may have gone up in price though)

Having had a 16GB SD card go bad on me in the phone, I have religiously maintained a backup of my 32GB SD card on my laptop. That way I HOPE it won't be a problem to simply select the files I want and move them to Nexus.

That's the plan, anyway

I have a plan, tell me what you all think,.
I have a upgrade date of 12/29 and if I pay full retail for the phone tomorrow then if I want to I. Can return it on the 29th and get my upgrade discount.
Can you all do the math for me and see if I'm right?

Moral of the story - I need this Galaxy Nexus NOW! Must destroy OG Droid immediately!
How ironic! Mine did the same thing this morning.

See if this worked...

I changed my profile pic from the TB in hopes that it will change my/our luck. Time for a new avatar and time for a new phone.

EDIT: HMM, old avatar is still there. Hope that's not a sign!!!

EDIT AGAIN: Does it take a while for the new pic to properly register? Thanks.

Why not just connect both devices to your computer and drag the files from one to the other?

It sounds like you changed Profile Picture. What you want to change is Avatar.

Ninja'd of course. Should have known the Avatar Queen would beat me!

Or call and have them note it on the account. If you pay ontime they will do it. Agreed, you are that close.
