I have a meeting from 9am-10am, but thankfully I found one store in my area (~5 min away from work) that opens at 11am! I am going to be there at 10:10am on the dot, right outside the door!

WOOOOO IT'S FINALLY TIME!!!

It's time for me to bid this thread goodbye. I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand it has become a part of my life, yet I feel it's a part that has run its course and needs to end.

My first post on this thread was in the second page, August 28th. Having been a member of this site since 7/10, I never expected it to run as long or as deep as it has.

Since 8/28, there have been three holidays, I've had a birthday and my house got flooded. When I think of how long ago the flooding and cleanup occurred, it puts this thread into temporal perspective.

This thread has shown all the best and worst which people do to one another. I've seen anger, hatred, trolling, spite, depression, sadness and outright lies. I've also seen compassion, caring, friendship, support, joy, understanding and closeness. As a student of human behavior, it's been interesting to watch.

I don't think it's right to single anyone out in any way so I say "thank you" to all who have contributed. Some of the best posts came from people who posted seldom, so if you think you didn't contribute that much, you may have contributed more than you realize.

I tried to give back through humor and reason though sometimes I failed on both counts. All I can say is I tried.

I'm leaving for the store in an hour, I'll see you in other threads.


Later!

This may be old, since I don't have time to go through the previous 20 pages I missed since last night lol, but has anyone noticed that the Nexus is 249.99 online? Will it be the same price when I go to the store at 9??

The reason I ask is because I thought it was going to be $299.99

So I'm guessing I'm the only person who's content to order online and have it shipped overnight?

Between my corporate discount and upgrade discount I got the Nexus and an extended battery for less than the $299 online price. WIN!!

Good Morning and Merry Nexmus to all! My store is getting there inventory in sometime today, (the only corporate store is 50 miles away). The good news is with low population in Coastal Carolina this time a year, I will probably be the only one there, lol. There are advantages of living in a sleepy place! Hopefully I will be able to pick mine up this afternoon! I have been mostly in the background lurking for months, I have had not had a lot to say but have really enjoyed the thread. Many thanks to all of the characters, you have made reading this thread feel like watching the Lost or 24 series, twists and turns at every corner and always leaving you wanting more! I am going to be unlocking the Nexus once I get her home and hope to see all of you in the various threads related to our device. Enjoy your day, you have all earned it and most importantly, have a blessed Christmas!

It's time! Heading out for breakfast and stopping by best buy. They're the only store that opens at 9. If for some reason they don't have any then I'm off to a vzw store. It's been fun!

Which store in Rochester are you going to? I'm curious to see what the demand will be like here. Reps at the Henrietta store said there's only been a couple calls in regards to the Nexus and that they have plenty of them in stock. I'm not taking my chances...

It shows as 289.99 for me - I had a 50 dollar discount a couple weeks ago... Why would I get 10 dollars off? That's a little messed up.

I'm so brainwashed by this thread into thinking that every verizon user in America is demanding this phone and the line will be out the door! Then it occurred to me that most people don't even know what this phone is, given the brilliant marketing by VZW...

Just placed my order via VZW.com, for overnight delivery.

It's been fun lurking here over the past 75k posts. What a ride, but I'm glad it's come to a complete stop.

Now I just hope it arrives on FedEx before I close tomorrow or else I guess I'll be staying late.

Sounds like we should target 45-60 minutes early is what I'm seeing? I don't care about being first, but would rather not be 10th when there are 3 associates working . . .

My store isn't opening until 10, but that's okay. I got into work early today so I can take off a bit early to grab my phone in the afternoon. Gotta pay for this thing somehow :-P

Merry Nexmas fellow Gnexers!

Looks like we won't hit 90k posts... in fact, we'll be hard pressed to hit 89k. And you know what?

ITS OKAY!

Most of us will be far too busy with our Nexi to post much anyway. My store opens at 9 AM CST, so I leave in about 90 minutes to play with Nexus, RAZR and ReZound side-by-side (and to make sure I am first in line for Nexus) and to listen to my son complain about how his Eris so desperately needs replacing... and how I so desperately need to buy HIM a Nexus too so we can beam together.

HA! I say again.... HA! Get off the video games, son, and get a JOB!

So let's go get our Nexi!

Merry Nexmas all!

I'll have mine after lunch sometime, arranging a store pickup on the corporate account! :0

As I'm heading out the door to Verizon I want to personally thank Han for his presence in this thread. I believe that without you this thread would only be a fraction of what it is. Your presence has been a breath of life, humor, and intelligence. I found it easier keeping my emotions in check by riding yours. Thanks again Ben

See you on the other side!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EDIT - Love you too Steven (OBVIOUSLY!)

As I may not be able to write anything before this thread closes, I thought I'd do so now.

It's been a wild ride, to say the least! The highs....the lows....and all the "in betweens!" It's been quite entertaining, albeit nervewracking at times, to see people's reactions to the slightest bit of news. If bad news: the anger, frustration, agony that comes out; on the other hand, if it's good news, then people sore to the highest of highs! All over a phone! (hey, I'm right there with you, on those swings, too!)

My hat is especially off to Steven, who has shown incredible patience and class when dealing with the little spats that happened along the way. GREAT JOB, sir!

Early, OTD, you both rock as well...I know it's been a tough job for you, but I applaud what you've done!

Also, to every person that's posted....you all had an impact in some fashion on this thread, some more than others. I DO think that we made a difference to VZW, on the release of this phone....GRATS!

With that, I'll probably be seeing you in the other forums, AFTER I have "Nessie." She awaits (whenever I can get there!)
