    That's unfortunate. I don't know what the chances are of anybody recovering them from a Google or database cache, but maybe one of the admins (or our hacker comrades) can give it a try.

    I almost didn't return the Rezound today. Almost. Lump me in with that crowd. I'm gonna put this Nexus through its paces to confirm I made the right decision for sure, else I'll have to beg the Rezound to forgive me for straying and take me back. ;)

    I did it in word, so if the mods can't recover it I will see if they can fix it for me. I just wanted to see Han's.

    I didn't get mine today :( My NE2 isn't for another week and they won't move it up. And I tried again to get the 3G to 4G $100 off promo but to no avail. I'm gonna try the Let's Talk site and see if I can get it there for $175. The reason why I'm doing this is because I'd rather not spend $300 on it when I really don't have to.

    Well, I got a little bonus with my Nexus today. What you see with my Verizon bag is a free bar of chocolate because today is the official 1st day of 4G in the area (even its actually been going for a while now). I don't get 4G where I live in the boondocks, but when I go up to town I'll have it available.

    I second this ^^

    If you try a couple times, you should find someone who's willing to work a little for their commission.

    Yea I have, but I can't find anyone that will change the date. Verizon just won't budge! I bummed but it's not the end of the world - it was released (finally!) and I'll have it soon enough.

    My view on why the delayed the phone:

    They didn't want to release the nexus in November, because they would be releasing two phones right after, both of which have lower specs, and don't have ICS.

    Glad I didn't get the bionic a few months back! :D

    i touched on this in our beloved thread earlier...

    he was pretty convinced that they will never find out. but if they honestly felt that it was 4G related, and they had an opportunity to fix it before it was released, i'd wait too. to your point, the DM said that they usually like to space out releases to avoid bogging down the activation system. when i brought up the rezound and the RAZR releases, he was really shocked with the rezound saying that it "stole a LOT of sales".

    Lower specs? Guess you haven't noticed the reports by people who've traded their Rezounds in for Nexus and now wonder if they can go back. Awesome, glad you love the new phone! :D

    I finally got it in my hands at 4:30! I wanted to cry. This phone feels great in the hand! It is EVERYTHING I thought it would be!

    I'm in love :)


    Does your current Android phone lack?
    And you think the iPhone is wack?
    The Galaxy Nexus is where it's at!

    It took me an hour to get my Nexus and I paid $50 more than I wanted to because they couldn't find my last NE2. They billed it to my account and said to call customer service and have them adjust my bill $50. There is definitely a learning curve with this phone over my Incredible but I love it! Now to root it.

    your welcome man, i took me a few calls to get it done too, but a few calls is worth $100 IMO

    i havent found one yet, other than going through the setting/network deal, but the devs will have one soon i hope

    it's not an actual toggle like a widget or the wifi on/off switch.

    Settings > More (under wireless & network) > Mobile networks > Network Mode

    You can select CDMA/LTE or CDMA only. A lot of clicking for a simple switch.

    I don't get 4G at work. I'm hoping to do a couple tests and perhaps get some NFC stickers/tags to do that switch automatically. At least that's cooler than paying for an app :D

    EDIT: i tried to upload screen shot but AF is telling me that the defualt size 720x1280 is too large. i'm thinking they may want to change that with all of us crazy nexicans running wild.

    ok, a few notes so far(after reading the last 4 pages to catch up):

    1) for those wondering about getting or not getting the extended battery - i went with it and do not regret it($25 bucks with discounts). while i dont have hard info on how much longer you can go with it, i would say an extra 1hr to 1.5hr isnt unreasonable. im not the type who likes to carry extra batteries around in my pocket or worry about taking the back on/off several times a day to swap out the battery, so the extra battery/charger wasnt an option for me. a side effect of using the extra battery might end up being the battery cover for this phone might not hold up very well after a period of time of doing that, but that remains to be seen.

    2) the only vzw app i actually like, verizon wifi auto turn-on, apparently doesnt work with ics correctly yet. when i try to launch it, it says "app only available to vzw subscribers", so they have to get that worked out.

    3) LTE is blazing fast when in range. in downtown nashville today after i bought it, i got 18down and 11 up, pretty good IMO.

    4)kinda bummed that after disabling google search through settings, i still cant use that screen space for anything else, i would love to put my Beautiful widgets up there and hopefully the devs will handle that soon

    5)DEFINITELY need a solution for a real toggle for 4g, going through the menu is cumbersome, but once again, the devs will have that soon.

    6)the wait was well worth it. the kinks will be worked out(mostly by devs i assume) soon, then this truly will be the beast i assumed it would be :D

    Okay, guys, I'm going to attempt to unlock the bootloader and root tonight. I'm very scared. The freaking instructions are like a million steps long just to unlock.

    I thought this was super easy??
