    I just set it up...pretty slick but it's not practical for me either. I am going on vacation next week and there are at least 8 isheep family members that I will be sure to turn it on for their viewing pleasure!

    Quick question do I need to sign into Google and set up and activate the device before unlock or can I power it on and have at it. Root may come a bit later after the few updates

    Unlock before. Or you'll sign in twice.

    I wish it were a little smaller. Very hard to use with one hand compared to my G2. Too bad the Rezound is not a Nexus device or I might switch.

    anyone else having lightflow say your battery is fully charged before the indicator says so? just noticed the notification for full battery(i have mine set to yellow) on and the indicator says the battery is only at 93%. could it be because of the extended battery or just a software issue?

    Just got it!

    It's soooo Beautiful! (tear)

    Too bad I have a 2 hour drive in front of me and can't play with it. :(

    Well... I think the lighted flash drive is just indicating that it's receiving power, and that the keyboard will probably work but you won't mount the flash drive with a stock kernel.

    Go ahead, prove me wrong. Won't be the first time I've eaten crow! :rolleyes:

    I am having an issue with Exchange hosted email using Active Sync, with Mailstreet hosting.

    I've got the right settings, but when you look in the inbox, only about 2 days mail, and then only about 30% of the normal mail volume.

    Strangely, I sent a test email and it delivered to my desktop computer, but if you go into the sent mail subfolder on the Nexus, it's not there.

    The contacts propagated into the phone from the hosted exchange, so that's working

    I'll keep you posted

    On my way home. I checked with the store, and they have the standard battery plus charger bundle.

    I'm going to exchange the extended battery. At least this way I won't have to plug on too much.

    Don't think you will regret it a bit. I've posted it a few times, but on 3G (I don't have 4G) it is on par if not better than my old Inc, Continuum, and Eris were everywhere reception wise. Battery life is very nearly the same as well, with the edge to the Nexus.

    I firmly believe the LTE issues everyone has are Network related and have nothing to do with the Nexus hardware or software, but hopefully I'm wrong and it will all be sorted with a few updates.

    I would agree with that except I can't even get 3g in my house when I always did before. I think the radios on the phone are just terrible. Everything else is pretty much perfect, except reception which has been terrible...and not just for me.

    Nowhere else to whine so I'll whine here... I'm still nexus free. Verizon has now twice refused to move up my 12/28 upgrade date to get this phone, even when I mentioned that I could walk over to Sprint, get added to my wife's account, get a Galaxy S2, buy out the rest of my verizon contract, and still save $1000 over the life of the contract. Bah.

    I'm worried now that by the time I can upgrade I'll be hearing about the" next great thing" and will be stuck waiting another 6 months for it to drop. At least y'all will give me all the info I need to decide of the SGN radios and battery are acceptable. Help me keep the faith!

    Don't give up, you just haven't reached the right csr yet. Keep trying

    This. Keep trying and you will get someone to do it. When I was buying mine in store, the guy behind me told the CSR he is buying it outright and didn't care (he had a bionic and had no upgrade). The CSR was like are you sure you want to do that? That is a lot of money...The CSR left for 2 minutes, came back and said "I can push your upgrade up for you, you now have the 2 year price". The guy had a Bionic...He JUST upgraded that just months before and they pushed it up for him. Pretty crazy.

    And as I was SUPER excited about the phone like everyone else, and I do love it, the reception is just awful. Yes, this is like the third post I've made about it in a very short period of time, but the wait won't be that bad. I am almost cell phone-less because the radios are so bad. Hopefully by the time you buy it everything will be worked out. I REALLY hope...

    Sad to hear that. So far, I've had zero problems. I'm in a pretty well covered area though.

    No Nexus yet for me. VZW screwed up their next day delivery, so I have to wait till Monday.

    Yes, there is an app for that, and it works on my OG:

    Well, I think it's the phone/software causing a non sync issue with Mailstreet.

    I was able to get a tech to use my settings, password with his personal Sammy S2 and he pulled all my email etc, and he's running 3.5.xx

    In other words, me suspects it's 4.0.2 or the phone but not my hosted exchange.

    I'll keep you advised, but FYI if you're a hosted person like me.
