Its just amazing to me how varied the responses from vzw stores is, i called up about 5 locally in MD and although I got a couple to admit they had stock, none of them would say anything or claimed to know anything about the actual release. Most were nice people who I had a conversation with and seemed to be relatively upfront, one even blamed the delay on Samsung, said its the manufacturer holding it up (doesn't seem likely)

SO after all of that, I decided to call a vzw corporate store down in Florida where my parents are for the week, the guy has a waiting list going, says its unofficial for tomorrow, all of the communications theyve had have pointed to tomorrow, but he's been trying to get a definite answer from his higher-ups but they're being "wishy-washy" in his words.. And to completely make sure I realized I need to move to Florida, he told me they have a decent amount in stock and its too bad I'm not down there because he's got one running in the back that people are checking out

OK, this has now become like my twitter feed...refresh and go to the newest posts. No way i can keep up with the volume of posts here! Good thing that there is no interest in this phone, huh?

And because this thread might (WILL) be closing soon - let me add my thanks to not only the (ir)regular "cast of characters" here, but also to the AMAZING mods who work their collective butts off to keep this a professional (ok, I use that loosely) and respectable site to go for information and speculation.

Since I never properly introduced myself, for those who give a crap (or have a crap to give) - Central PA here - (#iloveyorkcity) redevelopment guy... Remember, we don't inherit our lands (and buildings) from our grandparents - we borrow them from our grandchildren! Anyone wanna buy 58 acres of an old Motorcycle manufacturing facility? And yes, I also own a flower shop - (as everyone says - I'm just gay enough). twitter @BlandaNace

Again, thanks to Steven for being such a good guy - still love the pic at the Samsung Store in NYC - that is pure human happiness in all its glory!

See you on the other side!!!

Also called 3 RadioShacks in the area, they all denied having any in stock.
What was the other Boston store you called?

the vzw address is listed on the front of all the phones so not sure if they are waiting to put up a site tonight/tomorrow or are just going to leave the redirect in place

Take that with all the NACL you want.
wasn't there news earlier today that an OTA update was being pushed?

I just had my local rep at a corporate store give me a call and set up an appointment for tomorrow when they open up at 9am. He is actually off today but got the word for the launch and gave me a call. Seems like a real stand-up guy. I am trying to keep my excitement to low roar right now just in case something does come up to in fact delay the launch for the umpteenth time. I will still keep the faith if it does get delayed and I will be getting this when it does launch. As it looks, so far, tomorrow is out victory day!! Here's hoping that it comes to fruition!!

Sorry if this is a duplicate... I just don't have time at this moment to see if it's already been posted but I came across this site and felt it appropriate to share here.

Has Verizon Released the Galaxy Nexus?

Anyone else notice the RAZR is nowhere to be found on the front page of vzw.com now. I'm not saying this has anything to do with the Nexus (I'm sure it doesn't), I'm just surprised Verizon would shun their baby like this. Of course, the Xyboard is there, so they replace one crappy device with another.

I just found out from a friend in the phone industry that they hired a new marketing consultant to handle the Nexus release.

Oh it's mentioned at least in the form a a promotion. "Buy a Droid RAZR and get $100 off the Xyboard!"

I wish it was tomorrow already. I'm starting to get butterflies in my stomach.

Do you guys think I'll be able to sleep tonight? My wife hates it when I look at the phone in bed. So I'll probably have to take a strong shot of NyQuil.

I feel a bit bad over missing out on release day for the TP.

We could have had something special, TP. Now we'll never know.

Wow, that's a $45.00 discount!
I would double check that you get 15% off of the phone. I know you get 15% off of your voice and data plan, but I'm not so sure about the phone itself.

When I login to MyVerizon it prompts me to purchase a Droid RAZR. I have to say yes, no, or remind me later.

A VZW rep just called my cell phone to tell me that they have NO OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE. This was an unsolicited call from a 480 area code,She did mention the name of the CSR that I spoke to a month ago and was just following up.She also asked if I was interested in any other phones. WTF?

I have seen that several times over the last few weeks. It disappears for a few hours and then it comes back.

Really hope this releases tomorrow. The headphone jack on my Droid X is broken and I'm out of warranty. The store in my area said they'll know by tomorrow...

Yeah, if it's anything like my 25% off employer discount, we only get it for voice, data, and accessories. Definitely not on phones though.

Anybody in the Pittsburgh area find a place that confirmed tomorrow? I stopped in a Best Buy (McKnight) and a nice rep showed me the accessories but said they have no phones to her knowledge and expect a release next week... and I called a corporate store (also McKnight) and a RadioShack and they said early next week too.

Does VZW intend on locking this and charging for it like the rest of their phones?

I can confirm that the actual phone checks subscription and displays a pop-up to call for a subscription if one isn't found.

Just talked to a CSR at the Minneapolis skyway corporate store. After asking him if they would be selling the Nexus tomorrow he responded "I am not able to give you any information regarding the release of that phone, HOWEVER, if I were you I would be here tomorrow morning when we open...if that tells you anything..."

Looks like I'll be downtown at 7am tomorrow morning rockin sweatpants and a smile.
