Han – You were the first person in this thread that caught my eye and made me realize it was a fun and friendly place to hang out. So glad to have ‘met’ you! And lots of love to Hanette/Cheetara for all the leaks and amusement sent our way. And really cool that Mrs. Han made an appearance last night!

BB – Your avatars alone made this thread worth following, but you gave us so much more! Thanks for letting everyone into your life in such a fun way.

OTD – Sexy, sassy, vampiress awesomeness! Being undead is very becoming on you.

Scott – Do you know how depressing it was to realize 96 was probably the year you were born?! I was in my last year of med school then. Ugh! But your earnest eagerness was lovely.

Phases, Chief, EarlyMon, CaptRon, Woodraskam, Stigy, Antimony, GarbageDuck, HuskerKate, IndElle, and so many more I can’t think of right now - Always offered great guidance and lots of laughs. Even when I had 20+ pages to catch up on, I’d always stop and read your posts.

And Steven – what can I say, except To Sir, With Love…

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Watering Hole! You guys made this journey so much better.
I couldn't have said it better myself...thank you to everyone who has made this a really fun/bearable ride!

people, why is everyone calling their local stores? its obvious they cant/wont tell you anything, and if they do, people are still finding a way to doubt/discredit it anyway, so why bother? just follow here and twitter and you will know when its good to go

I was wondering the same thing. Also is there any difference in buying one at a Premium retailer than a Corp. store. If someone does purchase 1 from a Premium retailer and happens to get a lemon, do you have to specifically deal with the retailer?

Answers are greatly appreciated.

I for one will be going to the Premium retailer that just called and told me to show up tomorrow at 9 for my new phone!

I'm in NoVA as well and have heard similar stories, I'm gonna try to call a few more stores tonight, I'll let you know if I find out anything useful. Also please let me know if you find out anything as well

Question

So I am in a dilemma. My original droid is broke. I have no phone, so I'm praying on the Nexus tomorrow.

If I would happen to pick up the white razr, can't I return it within 14 days if "I don't like it"? aka to get a Nexus? Has anyone done this? Also would I be charged extra at all for doing this? Thanks

Got a phone call from my rep at the Garden State Plaza that it will be available tomorrow! Take it with a grain of salt. It will hopefully be in my hands at 8 a.m. tomorrow

Just called a corp VZW store in MoCo Maryland (outside DC)

Me: I'm interested in getting a GNex.
Rep: We don't have any info on a release date for that
Me: Do you have any in stock, so I can get one if it is released?
Rep: I don't know if we have any in stock.

WTF already.

I just de-activated my rent-a-RAZR and am going to return it in a few. Local Costco has my name on their list for tomorrow morning. If it doesn't happen, I have re-activated my old Droid X for now to hold me over until it does.

Just called the Springfield, MO corporate stores. One said he had no info and rumors are rumors. The other store said she had heard tomorrow was the day but they hadn't heard anything official and there wasn't anything in the equipment guide yet. Oh well. She took my name and number and said she would call as soon as she knew something more. I'll you guys know if she calls.

I know, I know, lots of places are getting LTE tomorrow, not just us. I just thought that was funny. She actually was very nice, and admitted they had a demo phone, but said they weren't allowed to break it out til release day. (wouldn't comment if it was Thursday or not, just said she hoped it was sooner than later)

ETA: Has anyone from New England gotten any confirmation that their store of choice will be selling tomorrow?
See if you can some of that 4G pushed towards the seacoast!

I hope your right However its fairly convincing when the regional manager tells you that no store in your region has the phone and no store in your region is scheduled to get the phone tomorrow.

You would think if they had a gag order you wouldn't tell a very specific lie like that. Especially from someone I've dealt with for years.

Edit: That information was also volunteered, not asked for. I didn't even mention stock.

Will I be able to order this phone online tomorrow? Unfortunately, I had planned to originally go to the store first thing in the morning since I learned this phone was going to be released back in November but since then, my father had a heart attack and other things have also surfaced that will prevent me from getting to the store tomorrow. I would really like to ensure I get this device, I don't care if I have to wait for it to be shipped. I just don't want to wait for it to come back in stock if it sells out extremely fast.

Posted this before but no one answered. Would appreciate if anyone could help me out here.

Don't do it! I like to keep my expectations low as well, and your posts have kept me grounded. I'm already more excited about tomorrow than I should be!

So is the general consensus that this is in fact coming out tomorrow? Or does the no official announcement = delayed again?

Haha, its infectious isn't it... Go play with the simulator, will raise your excitement level another notch
A bit, but I've gotten all excited before (last month) and was only left with a bad taste in my mouth. Never again. I'm sticking with tomorrow is not happening. For every "confirmation" peeps have gotten from friends, relatives, and insiders that work at VZW or retailers, there are as many "confirmations" that there is no way it's coming out tomorrow. I just don't see it happening.

Indianapolis checking in. Just stopped by my local BB and the guy was playing dumb at first. Pressed him a little about it and said let me check. He came back and said "Oh I just got an email about the GNEX and if you come back tomorrow we can sell it to you". Baller.

the general consensus is their are too many stories floating around to have a good general consensus, so basically no one knows anything

Can someone put a PSA out or put something like this in big bold print to let everyone know that Verizon employees are doing their job if they tell you it isn't available? A lot of people here seem surprised that there are stores telling them it's not out and they don't have stock. From what we saw this morning that's what they're supposed to do... It will be out tomorrow, stay optimistic and plan on it like most of us are.

Aren't you all so glad we didn't cave with the RAZR or HTC Device or anything else? I know I was REALLY freaking close a few times, so thanks for talking me off the ledge!!

Wow. Like I said, we probably don't want to know when this device COULD have been launched technically.

The general consensus is that it'll be out tomorrow. The fact we aren't seeing emails or anything saying it's delayed again from the majority of sources is very encouraging since it's already 3 PM Nexus-eve.

So, the big question is...

if the $100 discount can't be applied in store but you know can be applied on a phone order, are you going to nix the B&M store and buy it via phone?

I'd love to believe it's tomorrow but there hasn't been a single peep from Verizon. There is no way they're just dropping this phone without so much as an announcement.

Sorry, but I think lots of folks are going to be disappointed tomorrow. And we'll be flooded with "Gee, the rep that told me they would sell me the phone told me no go today. "
