    My T-Mobile contract is finally about to expire, so I went to purchase a Nexus One on Google's site. But when I tried to select the option to engrave the phone, it wouldn't let me, presenting with the message that "that engraving violates our editorial policy."

    What does Google have against my daughter's name? :p

    At first I thought the name I used was somehow "special", but I got the message no matter what I typed in. It wouldn't let me proceed without correcting the problem, but nothing I typed in would comply with their "editorial policy", and I couldn't find the text to said policy anywhere on their site.

    Anyone else have this problem? I plan on keeping this phone for a long time, and I'd really like to have it engraved.

    When does the error occur? I just tried it and had no problem, passed me over to the Google Cart log-in (which, of course, I didn't do).

    Maybe it's compliance with Texas law. ;)

    It occurs when I hit the Continue button. The non-compliance message appears above the field where I entered the text I want engraved.

    Texas Law? "You'll never convict a baby of murder. Well, maybe in Texas." - Police Chief Clancy Wiggum.

    Thanks for trying. I'll delete my cookies and see if that helps.

    Edit:
    Deleting the NEXUS cookie did the trick. I should have thought of that first.

    Good thing, too, because I was in the process of submitting court documents to change my daughter's name.
