    But apparently they didn't account for VZW testing and VZW found a bug or is pushing crapware like cityID to be on the phone.

    Yeah, at this point I'm not holding my breath. I'm starting to wonder if we'll even see it by Christmas at this point.

    From Phil:

    It gets better. Apparently the sticking point is one of those two piece of VZW software they're adding.

    Go figure, right?

    That's what I figured. :-/

    Definitely voting for a political swerve on his part. Still think it'll be here within a week. Maybe not Monday, but within a week.

    Well, I'm off to get the kids from school.


    On the bright side:

    Even if it is pushed back, at least the phone should be bug free when we get it.

    TRUST ME, it is worth the wait.

    Plus we have more time to make this thread just that much larger. :p

    Don't get down and be nice to each other. I'll be back on later.

    Not only does it say SAMSUNG NEXUS
    it also has its model number SCHI515. i have never seen it with a capital "I"
    shouldn't it be SCH i515? Im not sure if lower case letters mean anything.
    just my thoughts.
    trying to be optimistic and prove this wrong. haha

    If Verizon had gotten an LTE version of the Galaxy S II I have a feeling a lot of us wouldn't be here and would be very happy with our phones right now.

    The day started off so well, so positive. Now it's back to mania. Oh well, it was fun this morning. I will remain positive about Monday because, well, it just makes this weekend better. As opposed to sitting around stewing about how it could be another couple weeks. Stupid VZW.

    If the only issue is My VZW app and Backup Assistant - then I really don't care that much about whether they're on the phone or not, I'd rather have it sooner than later if those two apps are the only points of contention. They're hardly bloatware in the recent sense of the word.

    No way are they delaying this over software issues.

    They would have to open every box, fire up every Nexus, and update each one of... how many? Hundreds of thousands? Millions?

    Any hiccup can be fixed upon activation with an OTA.


    RELEASE THE PHONE, VERIZON!

    I'm not happy about this at all. Samsung and Google indicated it was ready and there were no software/hardware issues. Verizon decides to put their crapware on the phone and can't make it work right (or is pushing for more crapware). If they weren't putting this crap on the phone, we'd all have them by now!

    I swear at this point, I wouldn't be surprised if VZW forced google to somehow lock the phone down or lock the bootloader/etc. :mad::mad::mad:

    Right, or if they said today, Dec. 8th....I'd be happy. Holding your customers hostage with a release date is an infuratiang tactic.

    I'm not buying the 12/8 date at all. The sources are iffy at best and the screenshots we have seen are sketchy.

    The first screenshot looked to be an in-store advertising schedule that also listed the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, both of which have already launched so the dates on that schedule mean nothing in regards to device launch dates IMO.

    The second screenshot is...well, just look at it. Could have been typed up in 5 minutes by some troll looking to get rise.

    Also, I don't buy a word P3Droid says...he just needed something to get attention on him again. Panda aka Black Man X, who I tend to trust more than others, has maintained that Google and Samsung have done their part with the Nexus as far as delivering the devices in accordance to the agreement with VZW. The release at this point is 100% up to VZW (according to Panda), so I don't believe P3Droid's line about not being supply in the US.

    This is just my interpretation on the info we have from good sources so take it as you will!

    Well I was a little disappointed when people started saying this Monday for the release because I just bought a RAZR, but figured oh well, I can return it no big deal. But now, if the December rumors are true (which I don't believe), then I am glad that I made the jump to the RAZR when I did.
