    Oh I LOVE sticking my nose in when I hear those conversations. I make sure the customer KNOWS the real deal. Normally the sale person will walk off when they see they lost their customer to another customer :D

    Please excuse my newbish-ness, but I'm coming from a feature phone and not having to worry about data usage. My question is if I were to use say, Google Music to stream music from my account, does that take up data? Thanks.

    I would say yes most likely, unless you are on WiFi.

    Definitely. Using your Google phone to stream Google Music will use data.

    Yes that uses data as the song is bits of data you are pulling from Google's servers.

    I almost punched my screen. That made me so angry :mad:
    ...
    Anywayyyy...

    I'm gonna stop by the Verizon store tomorrow or Saturday (I mean it this time :D) and try my luck and maybe take a peek at the rezound :eek:
    The reps at my store are pretty nice, I've noticed, so it can't hurt to try.

    It's a verizon webpage test site.

    It's sole purpose is to have a bunch of people monitor it and then flip back to this page to tell everyone(several times each) that is had "gone down" for a minute.

    Because you need to know if it's up or down........

    I do that too!!! Not just phones. If the salesperson is being a bit baggy then I politely ask a question that will completely throw them off then start talking to the other customer. I was asked to leave a craft store once. (I know it's different than a phone but the manager didn't like being told he was wrong)

    Unless you are on wifi. Anything done while connected to wifi, shouldn't count against your data.

    Through some SD card scavenging I found that for some songs it downloads the entire song once for playback and then stores it as a temporary, lower quality audio file (or perhaps those are the files that I enabled for offline availability). But yes it does use data. Grandfathered into unlimited FTW! :)

    Hello everybody, I thought I'd come out of the lurk-closet to pass along a little information that I heard today. As with all these other posts, take this with 77 grains of salt. My daughter was making a Chipotle run, and since the Verizon store is right across the street, I asked her to wander in and see if anybody was talking. She was casually checking out Razrs and fruit phones, so naturally one of the associates walked up to her, all ready to sell her something. She mentions that she was really interested in a Nexus, and wondered if he knew when they were going on sale. He told her they were expecting them on Saturday, the 19th. She then asked if Verizon would have made some kind of announcement by now, and he stated probably not, with this phone. Not sure what that even means.

    Now, I really pondered whether or not my first post should be a "hey, I know something" kind of post, but I figured it was something to chew on, and you guys have been around long enough to know what this information is worth. Fortunately, it appears that we will soon know something concrete.

    Thanks to everybody that contributes to this madness, but I believe it will be worth it.

    Bring someone with you that you trust - before walking in hand that person your wallet and tell them to NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE, HAND IT BACK UNTIL YOU ARE IN THE CAR
    i kid. If you want to 'rent' it we won't hold it against you.

    So out of curiosity, has any useful information ever been leaked via the testman site? We went through this "ZOMG TESTMAN IZ DAON" business back when we waited for the Incredible, and never got anything out of it.

    Steven said information has been leaked off the Testman site before so that's why I've been checking periodically.
