    Um, no. Quite a few states away. Just looking now, they just must not have updated it. Now it shows it had been in transit and now it's at least in my state :)

    The different colors is a nice way to tell them apart outside of different cases. It's driving me nuts with so many people getting them or getting shipping updates while mine still says "Departure Scan" on 11/1.

    Transitioning for my SV to the 5. This is gonna take a while. Many contacts and emails and apps. Ahh. The joys of a Nexus 5. I really want all of you to get this device early.

    Jesus this thing is sexier than the pictures would suggest. It's updating right now.

    I haven't put my sim card in just yet. First I'm going to unlock it then play around with it a bit on wifi before loading the Sim.

    It is just a hell of a lot lighter than I thought it would be!!!

    Edit: I am glad I order a case, the camera part comes with a sticky over the lens that I will leave on until I have a case. Reminds me of the old Droid Incredible that had the camera sticking out that made you cringe every time you set it down on a hard table with the camera touching.

    What is the update everyone is talking about?

    Apparently as soon as you boot the device up, it will prompt for an update from 4.4 to 4.4.1.

    Supposedly LG & Google wanted to rush this device out ASAP when it was ready so it initially comes with "older" software and will update after booting up for the first time.

    Just in case you're still on the fence of getting a white or black one, this video my MKBHD (my fav tech reviewer) points out hardware differences between the two you probably didn't know besides the obvious color. No other reviewer has mentioned this. This could possibly change your opinion after you have ordered. I finally have both a white and black one and noticed the difference myself. It hasn't bothered me though. Google Nexus 5: Black vs White! - YouTube

    My version is still 4.4 after the update, with the same build as the Google factory images that were posted back on Oct 31st - krt16m

    Im not really a giant fan of the white speaker on the white version, but if its that big of an annoyance I'll find a way to change it. :p

    The glossy trim is no big deal to me.

    hey guys, haven't posted on here in a long time. My Nexus 5 gets here tomorrow.

    Quick question, do i have to sign for it? won't be home most of the day but the website doesn't say anything about signature being required. Don't know how google normally operates with regards to this. Thanks

    Mine was waiting by the front door, no signature required in the US

    I'm glad I'm in a building where someone's always there to sign for packages.

    I don't think I could stand the thought of it sitting out there waiting for me to get home :eek:

    I hear you on that! Luckily my UPS guy is pretty cool. Leaves my packages in the basement entrance. If no signature is required then i'll make the trip home as soon i see it was delivered.

    I'm right there with ya.

    Then I'm running to sprint to get my SIM and show it off to the local guys there

    Manny212 Active Member

    ahh then there's that dilemma. I still don't know whether i'm doing tmobile or sprint. I'm switching from verizon. I can actually get a 20% business discount with sprint and i have 3 lines that would be switched over if i went that route but a few of my friends with Sprint hate it. Still undecided but am leaning towards tmobile for now.

    Mine's supposed to arrive by EOD tomorrow! According to the tracking it looks to be correct.

    Debating on a case. I hate cases but I'm considering the spigen gold case. I'll probably just leave it naked though.

    The data network in most places is not great. However, I'm on wifiv90% of the time and they're voice services have always been reliable.

    Sprints also got great customer support and are very root friendly.

    However, If I paid the bill (currently still on my families plan), I'd go the T-Mobile route.

    A word of warning to anyone on MetroPCS: Even if you do all the pre-work getting a simcard and whatnot, you cannot activate it on Metro's network unless you actually go into an authorized store to have the IMEI number programmed into the network. In the mess, I think I screwed up my old phone which means I'm not sure I have a working phone number right now!

    Anyone know if I can remove the imei sticker from the back of the device?

    Its going to get trashed in my pocket.

    Anyone find the easter egg yet?

    spoiler hint?

    Still in "Departure Scan" mode and it's supposed to arrive tomorrow. This means that it has to be in my city before midnight to be put out on the truck for delivery. In the old days, there was more tracking information. Sometimes I wish that there was a GPS tracker on the trucks so that you could see your truck driving to your location, similar to what you see when you're tracking an airline flight. I'm pretty sure that it will show up regionally sometime today and be in our city by midnight or else it's going to be late (boo).

    I just pulled mine off (it comes off quite easily) and stuck it on the box. You can get it from Settings > About Phone anyway so it's not really needed
