    Ok, I'm getting fed up suffering through my Blackberry's endless life. I've had this stupid thing for 3 years now and I want to step out of the dark ages. I really don't want to go the "renting" route out of fear that Verizon will donkey punch me in the face then point and laugh after they delay the GN, but I'm getting to the point of no restraint. Should I wait until 12/1 to rent? That way I figure I'd still be within the return period if they delayed it a few days. I figure I can hold off for another week.

    Hi. My names Dubie and I'm living in the past. I need help.

    Also a good point - with programs like Dropbox and Google Music becoming more prevalent, cloud-based storage is making USB file transfer largely obsolete anyway.

    Agreed. They are not going to release any details that might compel people to think twice about spending money on Black Friday. P3Droid must think that it is now coming even later than Dec. 11th. 15th?

    Yep, I have no issue with gallery access speed, super, super quick, that's with 3,000 pics at 750MB.

    My sympathies on your suffering. You can step out soon and join us in the light. If the phone is working then I'd say wait. I know it's painful but you will be rewarded greatly.

    You've gone 3 years and you shouldn't have to wait an additional 2 weeks for the GN. You should totally rent now. It's worth it. :cool:

    So here are the numbers for those of us who don't have an upgrade handy, if the $619 price is correct. With 7% tax (my tax), the phone at retail comes to $663.39. By adding a line, phone price is $320.92, plus $14.61 for 24 months for the extra line, Comes to $671.63. But if you can get a loyalty discount, that will reduce the cost of the subsidized phone to $249, and end up being cheaper overall @ $618.13

    By default, no.

    But I will look through the file tonight and see if I can find a way to get rid of it. I'll ping Paul and see if he can find a way to get rid of it as well.

    Not sure what the Search button actually does right now though since I don't have a device to test it with.

    I see droid-life answered my question about a drop test, nice to see how well the galaxy nexus holds up compared to the razr. :)

    If the authorized retailers can buy the phone for $619, wouldn't that make you think the retail price for the customer is going to be higher? That retailer has to make some money in there somewhere

    Well, in the RAZR's defense, the stairs that the Nexus was dropped down were carpeted. If the Nexus had been dropped on concrete like the RAZR was, it probably would have been just as busted up.
