Not sure how many but I've gone through two battery covers and fixed the third one myself (it got loose again).

This is why I can't stomach the Rezound or the Razr. I was on MIUI today and wanted to go back to OMGB and check some logcats only to find out that I couldn't boot into CMR. I ended up having to SBF (back to factory install) and re-root > Nandroid (a good 20 minutes). Never got around to working on those logcats/GPS issues.

Never again, Moto. Never again.

So, went into my local vzw store tonight to take a look at the rezound and the razr, as well as to see if I could get anything out of the reps about the gnex.

The reps knew nothing, said they heard about it through people asking but have heard nothing about it from verizon.

On to the other two phones. The Razr looks awesome but being an OG Droid owner who is now on his 5th handset in the two years I have had one I'm ready to take a break from Moto hardware. The Rezound looks cool too, awesome screen, I hope the gnex screen will be close. God I hate sense with a passion, if there was no gnex I would consider it, but it would be a hard sell. To be honest if the gnex didn't exist I would probably follow my wife and buy a slab of fruit, siri is a cool toy to have.

but for real though, there's some speculation to that..people've commented that the execs are watching over this thread, torturing us.

So I just called my local corporate Verizon store and while they didn't give me a date, they knew what the Nexus was and the guy on the line checked with the manager just to make sure no news on the date had come out. Sounds like its coming, but it.. is... taking.... forever

No matter the final post count, the Inc thread will always be king. Posting just to boost the total count makes it artificial, IMO.

I'm looking forward to a phone I can actually use - my OG Droid is just about done. What I like the most about ICS & GNex:
Android Beam
Screen (720P)
Ice Cream of course
Face Unloc - even if it is a gimmick
Updates....updates....updates...first

You guys crazy enough to "rent" a phone for a $35 fee don't help the statistics for higher return rates of Android phones. Perhaps if they dug deeper in analyzing, they'd realize you're even bigger fans of Android, just impatient for the next big thing.

My OG Droid has become more and more unbearable, conveniently during this month. A good portion may be in my head, but there's no way I'm going to cave and buy an HTC or Motorola at this point. Pure Google with quicker updates means a lot when your last official update was Froyo. I've flashed mine a billion times and has never been stable.

My wife will get an SGN as well. I'd feel guilty seeing her phone get left behind in updates, and you need a partner for Beam. The camera's important and I don't think we can tell if selling points like zero shutter lag applies to all brands/models since they don't yet have ICS for comparing. I do know though, that anything's an improvement over the OG Droid's horrible camera.

Like others, I'm dying to know, and a date would let me sleep at night (except for the night before it's available). It's a shame some couldn't resist upgrading to another phone, but that leaves another available for the rest of us. Just don't go "rent" the SGN leaving us without one.

In all fairness, the DInc thread had WAY more off topic conversations.

I remember lurking in that thread before I got my DInc. It was hardly on topic.

I could live with being #2.

We'd be getting a 16Gb, slower HSPA 3G+ phone.

I can wait a few extra days.

I believe we need to begin some kind of intervention program to prevent members from visiting anymore VZW stores. The temptation seems to be too much for the faint of heart. We are close, people,...we are close.....if you don't stand for something, you won't stand for anything!! Repent.....turn from your selfish ways....come back.....come back....

As much as the Razr has a beautiful rock-solid feel, the combo of ICS [with direct Google involvement], removable battery, and no MotoBlur wins by a mile for me.

Seems odd to be back in the pre-release haze, but it was well worth it for Dinc and I'm sure the same will be true for the Gnex.

I was on the Dinc pre-release thread too......and this thread has the same carnage that the Dinc thread had........

But.........I........can't.........look.........aw ay.......

Soooooo I am really getting tempted to pick up the RAZR tomorrow and have it until the Nexus is released. If its not being released until Mid DEC I really dont think I can wait that long w/o a new phone. I am working with a real POS right now and think it would be cool to have a sort of trial period with the RAZR.

How strict do you think verizon will be w/ the return? Do you think I should do this?

IDK about that.

There are about 50 "Good Morning" posts here every day. About 50 "Good Night" posts every night. There were a couple hundred "Congratulation" posts today - they could(should) have been PM's. Thousands of replies stating the same thing when somebody says, "What happened today?" I'm not saying it's bad, it just happens in threads this big. It turns into a chat instead of the usual forum. But to say the Dinc thread was more off topic would be a disservice. You can jump in here at any time and hit off topic posting too. You want your Pugs and to eat your Pumpple cake too?

15000 posts would be about ( with average post amount for the past 2 weeks) about 12 days...

However, I have a feeling once we get a solid, or even semi-solid, release date we will fly through 2-3000 posts that day.

So I think we will easily surpass that mark. Let's aim for 50k...

I did, I would gladly have waited if they told us a tentative release date. Just let the rep know when you pick up a Razr the truth. Btw I really like the Razr.

Patience is not my strength, but being stubborn is, so I have firmly resolved not to give in to the temptation of any other phone. I "settled" the first time I got married, and that didn't end well. You don't have to hit this girl over the head twice before I get it.

Not strict at all. You have a window to return the phone (either 14 or 30 days, depending on when you buy) and have to pay a $35 restocking fee.

However, my personal opinion on this is to only do this if you honestly want to give the RAZR/Rezound a fair chance. I think it's not right to use something you have no intenion of keeping. That's my personal opinion on the matter, and you should do what you feel is right.
