You were told wrong.
I'm mostly worried about this line. Thanks for the link and info, I will inquire more tomorrow in a chat with a csr.

Edit: I'm gonna try again. They mentioned an email that said "Future Acitvations" and mentioned 45 days. ANY VZW EMPLOYEES HERE?

I wouldn't worry about it, there is nothing in the rest of the policy that states anything like what they told you.

Does vzw consider purchase = activate? I think that might be the difference on the extended return policy.

Well Google did release the Android source code in November, so they technically held up their end of the promise. Verizon just needs to figure it out.

Wow, finally caught up and able to make a post.

Too bad I don't have much to say. I'm in the same boat as all of you. Waiting is so painful.

Must be strong.

Agreed. I don't know if they equate "purchase" with "activation". Definitely worth looking into if you are on the rent a r phone program

Guys! Good news!

My sister texted and said she could tell me the date she has heard. She said that others in her office were seeing it online in several areas, so it’s not a secret.

She says:
Quote:
The date mentioned in a meeting today is w/o 21. I know you wanted it this Friday, but better than nothing.
I texted back:
Quote:
is w/o “web only” or “week of”?
She texted back:

Quote:
week of. guess we like mondays now. :-p

So as fun as it was to believe the RAZR conspiracy theory (don't release or it will kill RAZR sales), Verizon hasn't released the GNex because honestly it's not ready for thier network.

If that was the case with the RAZR, then they wouldn't have released the Rezound 3 days later.
Didn't we also hear from The Source that it was NOT a hardware or software problem but rather management/corporate reasons? If it was a software problem, it must have been really serious to warrant pushing out the phone and not just releasing an OTA. The one report was of exchange problems, so I guess if your theory is right, they felt it was serious enough to warrant delaying the release. We also have had Google and Samsung both say it was ready to go and was in Verizon's hands. I still like the explanation that someone gave (sorry, too lazy to go back and look to give the OP credit) that the SGN was set to release 11/3-ish, and was pushed and rather than trampling the RAZR release, they pushed it out a bit.

Wait, so I can bill the phone to my account, then pay it off month-by-month or something? If you have the cash to pay your VZW bill, why not just pay with your debit/credit card?

I think she thought I was really banking on tomorrow (11/17). But Iíll be happy with 21.

I just hope that sheís not assuming Monday, and that they actually said it. Because she says ďweek ofĒ and then ďMondayĒ.

I texted back asking if she specifically heard Monday, or just the week. She hasnít texted back yet. She has a tendency to disappear.

I just hope that her info is definite and not "subject to change".

For those questioning the return policy this is how it worked last year. During Christmas season 2010 I bought my father a fascinate. I was told if activated we would have 14 days to return it if he did not like it. He did not like it before I was even able to show him the phone. We returned it 20 days after purchase date and received all $ back no 35$ fee. I have no clue if this applies now

My guess is it's the same thing here, otherwise it's just too good of a deal. Verizon couldn't release a better phone from here till Jan 9th or they could get returns. That wouldn't make business sense.

I know what the policy says, and MAYBE you could fight your way through the return, but I have a bad feeling banking on a rental period from here till Jan. 9

You think they will launch on Thanksgiving. I doubt that. Monday sounds much better.

While week of 21 is good, I had hoped to have the phone before then and get the new-phone fun out of the way. The wife is due the 20th and having a brand new phone just as she goes into labor could be very, very bad.

Thursday is out because of TG. Probably points to Monday, hopefully.
