Joining in again! Hopefully today brings us some good news. Debated on staying up 'til midnight to see what may come, but that didn't pan out. Anyway, good to be back. Come on, big news!

From what I understand, no preorders or any real official word. Some off the cuff quote from a Google guy, but no vz release date yet. Still looking like Monday though.

Guys, I've got a question, please bear with me on this.

I currently have the Bionic and I'm planning on picking up the Nexus on its release. Assuming I'm not happy with it (yeah yeah, I know), I'd plan to swap it for the Razr. Now here's where things get a bit complicated.

If I'm not happy with the Razr and decide to back to my Bionic (which a friend is waiting to buy assuming I keep one of these other phones), will VZW allow me to return the Razr? That would be a full retail purchase of the Nexus, followed by a swap (full retail again) to the Razr and finally, if all else fails, a return and reactivation of my Bionic.

What do you guys think? Will they allow this?

So I've been preparing if the phone drops in-store with little or no warning.

The Verizon Corporate store is 12.24 miles from my house. I have a VW GTI which I chipped up to 268bhp and 298foot pounds of torque so I'm in good shape for a speed run. I've made some trial runs and the average is 17.2966666 minutes considering lights and traffic patterns (which I can't seem to control but experiments continue). I have practiced plugging in the radar detector with one hand for added protection.

The car is full of gas at all times, my Nook charged, plenty of smokes, cold drinks, an empty bottle (you figure it out). I've been wearing several layers of clothing so I am prepared for any weather. I have a note pre-written so my wife doesn't freak out if I disappear suddenly ("Honey, the phone has been released and I am off to Verizon to get one! I'll either return with it in hand or choke their rivers with my dead!").

I could not be more prepared. It's just a waiting game now.

As long as you return within 14 days of the first phone purchased, you should be ok.

People were pointing out while discussing the buy a rezound while waiting for the SGN that the verizon policy only allows 1 exchange per purchase. So you'd likely have to return the phone in full, and begin the purchase anew.

Remember, Verizon has an extended return period for all purchases made after November 15th. You have until January 9th.

Ah! That's what I was driving at. I was a bit nervous returning the first phone, swapping out for a 2nd different phone and then returning that 2nd phone to reactivate my original Bionic.

Sounds like you're saying I can't do that and should simply return the first phone and start an entirely new transaction for the 2nd one (no swap).

Thanks!

Be careful with this. Multiple places have clarified this policy. This is only for purchases that aren't activated. Once activated, the usual 14-day policy is in place.

Okay, this has little to do with Nexus, but...THANK GOD. Though, I'm sure there will be disputes and work arounds.

I'm pretty sure once you swap the SGN for the RAZR you'll be done. It's my understanding that if you take back a new phone and get another new phone that your return is final. Make sure to check VZWs T and C's to be sure though.

But you'd be OK if you returned the first phone and then bought a 2nd as an entirely new transaction, correct?

Thanks guys!
I do think there is language about the # of exchanges you can make. An I think they say one... If you are doing it all on one transaction each time... Not sure how they define a return and new purchase vs. an exchange though.... I'd look it up on their policies... BB is better about # of returns and no restocking fee...

I've done that but it has always been weeks in between

Not to mention they will surely screw up your upgrade date... Doesn't take much to confuse them

I don't know if this is similar, but I have returned a phone before and they made it sort of sound as though it's a one time thing for contract term with the 14 day return period. Not sure how that is affected by multiple lines, as I only had one line at the time. Probably one return per line.

I'll be sad when this forum closes, however I'm sure my boss will be happy seeing my production go back up (when I'm not playing with the Nexus).

It so you can buy a phone as a gift. Once your gift recipient opens the gift, activates phone, they have 14 days to decide if that is the phone for tthem or not. It benefits us only in a gift giving situation...

At this point, I'm pretty sure any pre-order is out unless it's not released on the 21st. It doesn't make sense to preorder 1 business day ahead of release. These are usually given at least a week.

Correct, you don't get 14 days on each phone, only 14 days for your contract.

No word yet.

I'll check back in a bit. If the floodgates open, somebody better alert me or I'm going to be cranky

Maybe we need a buddy system. Everyone, quick, grab your GNex buddy.

Since I actually got somewhat decent sleep, could someone catch me up on the few pages I've missed out on? Is there any news regarding Friday pre-orders/announcement or any more confirmation for Monday?

Nothing yet from Verizon

Everything is pointing to a 21st Launch. A very QUIET 21st Launch.

But Verizon is deafeningly silent.
