    I spoke with AT&T. Having pre-ordered many phones over the last few years I know their system well. I only bring that up because after speaking with two different reps, they sound uncertain about this particular phone.

    Usually they can readily give me a window of time estimated for shipping. They could not do that today. So I called the Corporate Store Mgr I've been doing a high volume of business with and he was equally uncertain.

    I was also able to identify this as an issue with the supplier, not AT&T. Therefore I'm going forward with no expectations, just an open mind.

    They're essentially the same phones. The only difference are the bands for international and north america versions. Even the radio software are the same, down to the MD5 checksums. I assume it recognizes which version of the phone its on and runs whats needed.

    Well I was stuck with the Vzw Gnex and back in my day each version had its own rom, meaning Vzw had a Rom1a, Sprint had Rom1b, ATT had Rom1c. So yea hopefully everyone can just make a rom and its good for all Nexu6 to run...

    I've still got a Sprint Gnex laying around somewhere, so I know what you mean :eek: :rofl:


    Based on everything we've seen so far, those GNEX days are long behind us.

    We will get confirmation when the factory images are posted. If there is only 1, you know all devices are once again the same, and all ROMS will be compatible.

    On the Gnex, there was 3 distinct phone models (GSM GT-9250, Verizon i-515, and Sprint L700). With the Nexus 5, there is only one model for North America (D820).

    From today's Verizon chat -
    Sounds alright to me!

    And a bit later he repeated that I "Need to check back tomorrow" for information on the Nex6.

    The Embargo ends tomorrow, right? Sounds like Vz will announce something then...

    Thanks for sharing this! Just hoping they actually do announce something tomorrow. It would give all of us Verizon folk an ease of mind.

    I probably would have bet the Verizon Rep money though. You probably would have won. LOL

    This is turning out to be quite the comedy. Luckily I have a date of the 19th and hope that holds true.

    Motorola always seems to have supply issues. I wonder if all their resources may have gone to the Turbo first?

    I am also interested in reading reviews from some of the sites around the web. Although, really, I cant wait until someone in this forum gets their hands on the device and provides us with their real world thoughts...

    I am kind of glad to see this. I got up this morning and checked the VZW website - no sign of Nex6. :(

    If the embargo is not up till 10am PST, then there is still hope for a VZW announcement today.

    Maybe we can pressure VZW to making some sort of announcement today. After the embargo is lifted, everyone go to @VZWnews and @Verizon and ask them for some sort of a statement or news. Here is what I tweeted to them today:

    @Verizon Hoping for a BIG #NEXUS6 announcement today. Any hope in that?

    And I tweeted this to @VZWSupport

    @VZWSupport I bought a #NEXUS6 from Motorola because it supports #VZW's bands. Will it work out of the box when it gets here?
