    There is a way around that restocking fee. Tell them there is something wrong with the phone and you want to exchange it for a Nexus. They wont charge the restocking fee when there is a problem with the phone.

    On a lighter note, it does seem as if we are a march to set the all-time Android Forums record. I tend to do that. :p

    Right Behind You
    I'm not sure how many of you have been through a phone launch like this or a major OS update before. The reason I bring it up has to do with the overall mentality and mood of this type of thread and this type of forum.

    Many of us have been through this before and while I'd like to say it gets easier or that we become more patient, it doesn't and we don't. We all tend to get a little frustrated from time to time. We get the feeling that someone (Google/Carrier/Manufacturer) is being the bad guy. We get mad at each and every one of them and we make comments about quitting or canceling. Some will move on to other phones or even other OSs because of these things and others will wait. People will get mad at sources of information for being wrong or even for being right about things we don't want to hear. People will hear about problems with hardware and software. All of this is pretty standard believe it or not. It has happened in many of the greatly anticipated phones as well as many anticipated OS updates.

    The important thing to remember in all of this is that the person posting above or below you is not who you are mad at really. You may get frustrated with what they are saying, but they are in the same boat you are and they have the same feelings that you do. Even the "evil 3" aren't out to get anyone or somehow screw anyone over. They are in this to make and sell products to get money and nothing more.

    So, as I have said numerous times in this thread, and others like it, I remind you to relax and keep your head. Don't turn a friend into an enemy or make the mistake of misunderstandings someone's words simply because they are in black and white and not full of the same expression found in the spoken word. Don't be mad at someone for changing their mind or deciding they can't wait any longer. Appreciate the little things that occur and find humor in the bad things. Love the fact that you have hundreds to thousands of Android brothers and sisters that understand and can appreciate your pain. :D

    at the very low level of hardware, the contacts have to connect for so many cpu cycles before a button press is registered. At least that's how it was in my EE classes in College. This is needed be cause contacts aren't perfectly flat at the microscopic level, and without using a "Clock cycles to register" mechanism, there would be a ton of phantom "button Presses" when pressing a button.

    It's possible that modifying some of these settings in the firmware could solve it, but either way. I'm not too thrilled about it.

    Hope that makes sense. It does to me...but I wrote it :)

    Yeah, radio interference is a huge thing for the FCC, anytime you read an FCC warning, that is the main point, it must not give off any radio signals which can cause a problem, and it must take all radio signals without causing a problem. If you are able to bring another phone near it and cause a problem... well, thats a big problem.

    You may want to read this post.

    Well, it seems to stand to reason that the US delay is caused by Verizon wanting to fix the issues that have arisen. However, the volume problem from the UK shouldn't affect LTE users anyway (assuming it's not a hardware issue). Further, things like the auto-brightness have already had fixes issued from the XDA forum, check back for links in this thread.

    Not true unless that was changed recently. I was charged a restocking fee when my radio died the first week of ownership on the Palm Pre. I took it back and told them what was wrong and that I had spent hours on the phone with tech support and now questioned the quality of Palm products and no longer wanted anything made by them and wanted to swap for a Droid. Was charged restocking fee anyway.

    If you have to buy at full retail I would not do it at best buy. They always charge at least 100 dollars more for their phones at full retail price. I would rather pay the 35 dollars restocking fee

    Grats! I'd be very interested in your thoughts on it, specifically how much storage, and if you're having any volume isses.
