    For a release or an announcement, or either?

    I am fairly confident that the phone will not be released tomorrow. It makes NO sense that an exclusive phone would not get an announcement, plus some people here reported stores claiming they have no stock and have had no training.

    However, I still have hope for an announcement. I really have no evidence or reason to believe that there will be announcement tomorrow, I am just hoping.

    Sorry guys, a brain fart.

    If it offends you then report it. I have received PM's on occasion from mods asking me to cool it on a certain topic, and I've always complied. I see the zero tolerance for name calling other members here; that's unacceptable.

    But if that's the standard, then enforce it for everything. I don't recall anyone raising a ruckus when a certain member was calling me a whiny, immature brat when I suggested we join the "grass roots" movement the day Verizon announced it, even though the Love Tunnel basically confirmed that it worked.

    Exactly. I don't get the furor over calling a spade a spade.

    Isn't this a type of name calling in itself?

    Norv is a great OC and a terrible HC. He took the skins who were 7-1 and #1 in the NFL back in '96 and managed to lose enough games the second half of the season to miss the playoffs completely. He is terrible. I follow the Chargers as my second team and the canning of Schottenheimer / hiring of Turner was the beginning of the end for the Chargers. Your GM seems like he prefers yes men to capable coaches.

    I still think that the theory of an actual online release starting tomorrow is likely, as some stores haven't received training/promo materials for it yet, but that it will be in stores on Monday, at which point all the stores will be up-to-date. That's what I'm hoping for at least... and I have to go to Minneapolis with my family on Thursday morning so if they announce it tomorrow hopefully it can arrive before then so I can test it out! Oh god I'm getting so excited just thinking about it.

    Our general idea is that people who make themselves public phenomena set themselves up as fair game for positive or negative public opinion and all expressions thereof are fair game, so long as the language doesn't violate our rules.

    This is in contrast to private individuals who join here agreeing to our terms and conditions.

    Mod staff has yet to find any double standard on this.

    If anyone believes mod staff is wrong in this approach, please PM your views on the matter to Phases.

    Cheers, many thanks! :)

    The problem is that plan makes so much sense Verizon won't do it. Would be perfect, Verizon locks in early adopters like ourselves with contract extensions while keeping their bloat phones at the forefront in their stores. Is a clear win-win, but they won't do it.

    Edit: sorry Monkey, quoted wrong post

    Its a phooooone! I know we love it, but sheesh guys! Aaaaand its a football game! I didn't come in here to extract pity or get revved up about how incredibly fully my beloved Huskers were embarrassed on Saturday.

    I watched this thread initially because it was an excellent source of amalgamated information from the web on the release of this device. I joined because you guys seemed genuinely respectable, honest, humble and delightful to engage with.

    Now after being here for a short while, I see how some folks in here work. Praise what you want to hear and denounce, demean, belittle and outright reject what you don't want to believe. There's something to be said of optimism. But there's also something to be said of naivety, and denial. I'm not mentioning you Han, or pointing fingers at any one person in particular. Its just a theme in here.

    I want everyone to look at the title of this thread. Remember what it said less that a week ago? How has any waffling P3 has made about a release date any different than THAT info Steven has been so graciously given by his sources? The only difference is P3 had already been judged and labeled for his candor. Steven has had the benefit of being a humble and respected member of us, his peers. That is the only difference I have seen.

    I seriously hope they do, though. You might think that after all they've "done" to us (which, might I add, is nothing), this will be yet another disappointment, but I have strong reason to believe that it will be for real this time. Let's pray it is :O

    The other difference is that, and people here can feel free to correct me if I am wrong, but the sources in this thread, the ones that Steven has been talking to and the ones that are giving us the info, were all properly "vetted" by Steven and the other admins, to the extent of not being fired from their jobs of course. He has assured us as much.

    P3 just kinda spouts off info and shoots from the hip. Who knows where he is hearing this from, if he is even hearing anything at all.

    Sorry, but...big difference.

    Nope. If the Nexus is/has:

    A) A locked and encrypted bootloader(the latter being the important point)

    B) Only 16GB and $299

    or

    C) pushed into December

    I won't be getting it.

    Fixed :) You guys seriously need to get your whens and ifs straight :p
    But seriously, if it doesn't happen tomorrow I'll hope for the next day, and the next, etc.
    I don't get upset when it doesn't come when I want it to, I just keep looking forward until it does.

    PS - we find no value in vulgarity.

    There's really no further need of it.

    Please drop the words douche, dbag and the like.

    Also, there is no need to continue to attempt to bypass our word filters with stars or the like.

    I apologize that I hit submit earlier, before clarifying these points.

    Moving forward, I will be quite specific in addressing vulgarity against this warning.

    Thank you.

    Alright, I was just wondering because you are so pumped and so adamant about it releasing at some point this week, that it seems like if (when) it doesn't, you are going to be gravely disappointed...
