I dont put too much faith in what he says neither. Not because he is a windsock like Pee3 but Verizon dont know their *** from a whole in the ground. So its hard for anyone outside of Verizon to know what is going on. Ill put my faith in what info Steven and LT give us.

BTW:Thnx for getting some news Steven!!

So this is a Verizon/LTE issue? If the GSM version releases in the next few days, it will really look bad for Verizon and/or the LTE hardware. I'm close to just getting a Rezound, it will probably get cm9/ICS before we get the SGN at this point anyway.

So I've been lurking for a few weeks. I don't have any important news, but was wondering if anyone can answer a question. I am traveling on business and would really like to upgrade NOW. I really want the GNEX, but was thinking of trying out the Razr. If I purchase a phone while out of town can I return it to my local store when the gnex comes out? Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks

I'd like to think that too... or he might just be being the great guy he is and be excited to have ANY news for us. Here's to hoping...

It may be entirely possible, at this point, to have a RAZR or Rezound in your hand running ICS (custom) before you can have a Gnex in your hand. Total crap... freakin' VZ!!!!

He's probably excited because he now has confirmation from the source and a vzw rep that it will be released by mid-December. I mean, it's not a firm date, but at least it's a corroborated end point in sight.

Maybe the web only on 11/21 will work out like the link indicated earlier??? Maybe instore later?? Who the hell knows!!!??? I think it would be silly to miss out on black friday in store from a VZW perspective.

Welcome to the insane asylum!

I don't know if you can return like that - I don't see why you wouldn't be able to but I would make sure first.

I'm really close to pulling the trigger for the Rezound also... but you realize were are doing EXACTLY what VZW wants us to do. Damned if you do and damned if you don't!!!

wouldn't doubt Cyanogen coming out with working ROM's for most of the phones we currently have before we can get "the first phone with android 4.0" (nexus) in our hands.

You know, there's still a chance it could come at the end of November. There's still "a couple of weeks" left in the month. Hopefully we'll get it on the week of November 28th. The "certainly by mid-December" it could be anywhere from next week till 12/15. If Friday the 18th or Monday the 21st passes without any announcement, well then....I will also join the chorus of people singing "I hate you, Verizon".

Silly is an understatement. VZW doesn't just lose those customers for one purchase. They lose them for 24+ months or continues large monthly service payments.

Probably...luckily (*knock on wood*), my Dinc is trucking along with cm7 without any issues. So I'll probably end up waiting, but the thought of waiting yet another month is irritating me.

Why do we trust Steven's source. Wasn't it 2 days ago that they "confirmed" the 17th? I feel like they are just as in the know as any of us. Maybe they are basing their knowledge off of P3. Its the same information....

I trust no one, but it's not looking good for a Thursday release. Verizon should at least prepare us by Tuesday for a Thursday release for such a big phone...maybe....i dont know...im going to cry

Wow. I think everyone needs to take a step back, count to 10, take a smoke break or whatever you do to cool off.


With the way most of you are talking, I actually feel bad for Verizon. They are in a no win situation with everyone. If the Nexus has a radio or software issue and they release it everyone would be angry that they didn't fix the problems before release (happens every time there is a problem). If there is a supply problem then everyone would be angry that "that other guy" got one and they didn't which would make them blame Verizon for a lack of inventory. If they hold off the release to solve a problem then they are blamed for trying to sell other phones. They can't win.

Verizon isn't interested in selling phones. They are interested in selling service for those phones. They want contracts, two year contracts with data plans. The phone, as long as it works, doesn't matter. I have heard this from just about every Verizon corporate person I have ever had dealings with. As my friend told me before, this isn't something they were forced into. They want the phone and for whatever reason there are delays (not really because no official date was given).

Please try to stay calm and be respectful of your fellow members when posting. Nobody is the enemy here.

Verizon is now sitting on a golden throne in our minds for not waiting until December, when the entire time they planned to release the 17th. Boom
this is the superman theory. hype builds up, delays are announced, and here they come to sweep in the goodness and save the day. really interesting to be a part of companies that use this strategy. sucks when we're at the mercy of it. it may work in other markets/industries... but i sure hope they know not to toy with the minds of consumers.

Verizon could avoid a lot of returned Razr's and Rezound's just by giving a tentative date. I don't feel a bit sorry for the loss they take on the returns.

Granted, I'm not in the same situation as you (with a dying phone), but here is why I will not give in and pick up either the Rezound or Razr:

What if Verizon, in its infinite wisdom, delays the phone even further...beyond the 1/9/12 deadline for returning? Then what? I'm stuck with a phone I don't want for 2 years. As irritated as I am with this whole cluster-you-know-what, I'm still gonna tough it out. If I were in your shoes, I'd be calling my sister to send me one of her hand-me-downs so I would have it on hand to last me until whenever this phone finally comes out.

When i think of upgrading my phone the first thing that comes to mind is that I am going to be annoyed with a lack of info on any phones coming soon, and the next thing is the "waiting" Its just a ton of waiting with no details at all. I think verizon I think waiting and annoyance then 2nd i think they have the best network. it used to be the other way around.....people can only take that rain of thought for so long before they say screw it i would rather go somewhere else.

They won't care. They will take those returned phones, shiny them up nice and pretty and send them to customers with warranty issues. Truly defective phones will end up going back to the mfg for credit or refurbing.

i wholeheartedly agree that VZW is completely botching this release. phone was announced in Oct, and it's ready to go now. while there may be "corporate reasons" for not releasing, i fail to see any reason for completely bungling the flow of info.

but, let's not confuse this situation with that of the Bionic. the Bionic fiasco was all on Moto. It announced the Etna at CES, but then had to scrap that device because of problems with the device. It then just took the Targa (another phone already in production and already slated for Q3 release), gave it the Bionic name, and then released in Sept. here, we have a different scenario - the phone is ready to go, but it is VZW holding up the release.

I don't think so. I'm pretty sure that when I did something like this they mail you the other phone and once you receive the new phone you have 5 days to get the other phone back to them.

The only problem I see with that action is, that you will have to dig through 20 pages of post to keep up.

Thanks
So long as you pick it up from a corporate store and not one of the "authorized reseller" stores, you should be fine returning it to any corporate store in the country. Naturally, you can phone Verizon to confirm this.

VZW always does this. I think the "official" Bionic announcement was the day before it went on sale. Like lots of people have said, if they announced it last week, it might cut into their RAZR or Rezound sales. Announcing it the day before means no one was "waiting" for it. At least to their thinking.

As irritated as I am with this whole cluster-you-know-what, I'm still gonna tough it out. If I were in your shoes, I'd be calling my sister to send me one of her hand-me-downs so I would have it on hand to last me until whenever this phone finally comes out.
If they delay it beyond 1/9/2012, just return the phone and go back to whatever you're using now.

I'm more concerned about damaging the phone while I have it. My wife accidentally dunked her Bionic in a little bit of water, and now the camera lens is fogged up and the ear speaker is a little jacked up. Anyone ever had any good luck getting warranty work/replacement if the moisture sensor is tripped?

This is exactly what happened with the Dinc and the TB. Same posts, same vitriol, same everything. I bet it's even the same people. Don't we ever learn?

They can win. How about they come out and tell everyone honestly what going on. Even if it's something along the lines of:

"We are currently experiencing issues with the Galaxy Nexus during testing. We aim to get this resolved within the next X days, we will update you on the X of November."

There we go, wasn't so hard was it. People understand there can be issues with phone releases, just man up, tell everyone what the issue is, and you'll have a much happier customer base.

Agreed.
Knowing this, I'm not gonna hit the panic button unless Monday passes with still no news. Then I'll panic.

No one here seems to be interpreting the "Corporate reasons" as meaning "corporate reasons for not being transparent about launch plans and timeline for this phone" and that Steven is saying the source confirmed it's launching Thursday in a silent and sudden unadvertised fashion. The corporate reasons are related to why this is being handled so oddly rather than a normal hard launch with lots of advertising like the first two.

I understand the angst and displeasure with the lack of a release date. However, I would personally prefer that they take the time to get the phone right instead of releasing it half-assed and forcing me to deal with additional bugs, waiting for fixes to be rolled out, etc. I have had my Dinc since it came out, an extra couple of weeks is not going to break me. My birthday is 12/16, if I can get a GNex in my grubby hands by then, I should be able to avoid having a stroke without too much effort.

I'm not buying this mid December release nonsense. I did buy into the "i'm going to hold tight and believe in the source saying 17th"..

I think there's still a good chance we can see it the 28th. I'm hoping for 21st. (Nov)

Well, google/samsung did say in the launch conference the phone would be out in the US in November, they just didn't say on which carrier. Doesn't look like any other carrier will have it this month. So, really, while technically it should be google/samsung with egg on its face if it doesn't come out, Verizon's strategy of not committing to the same time frame is not going to save them from the wrath of customers.

I imagine that they don't want to undermine confidence in the product and have people thinking that it's the Bionic all over again.

I don't recall ever seeing a positive confirmation from The Source of the 17th. I recall seeing only "this is what I have heard, and I haven't heard anything to contradict that". The source has no control over corporate changes that take place in release schedules. I don't think it's fair to distrust Steven's source over something they have no control over, when they are willingly sharing the info they do have with us when they get it - potentially to their own detriment. Cut 'em some slack.

I hate everyone today.

How can you have the WORLDS FIRST ANDROID 4.0 PHONE AND JUST SIT ON IT?!

How can a site that's called "the Verge" be so behind the verge and NOT HAVE A LIVE STREAM OF THEIR PREMIERE SHOW?!

I'm going to wait for Steven to clarify if the Source meant the 17th or mid-December but...if it is mid-December, I am going to the store to buy a Razr today. I am still on a stupid dumb phone and I can't stand using it anymore.

But, when someone asks what day your party is...and it's still the same day you told them two days ago, you don't give them a reason that it's the same, even if you haven't invited anyone else yet.
