    Along those same lines, what if the 12/8 leaks are for the 16 GB version and the 32 GB version is still on track for Monday?

    I don't think that is possible, someone else has already jumped on the "prime" trademark, so, I think that is gone.

    Now, everyone quit arguing about post count. Steven had to delete posts, which hurts our post count... geez

    Someone already answered you, but no, you don't pay extra for LTE.

    I did want to make another point though: call customer service now to get your double data! You don't have to renew your contract or upgrade your phone to do it, and we don't know when it's going to end.


    Please, oh please, don't start the theorizing over Droid branding for this device. As it is, we know a 32 GB model Galaxy Nexus exists as of the Hong Kong announcement, but according to http://www.google.com/nexus, the only offering is 16GB(US or UK). Obviously the website is wrong, and they're currently in the progress of pulling their head out of their butt. It is the weekend after all, it may not get fixed till Monday.

    I just realized; Verizon never said ANYTHING related to a release date, and all these rumors are showing late November/early December, but technically Verizon could wait until next year to release it if they wanted to LOL
    They won't, but they technically could.

    I just brought up the idea because SGSII-HD-LTE has passed though FCC back in October. It was said that the SGSII-HD-LTE was for a Korean release. But that does not mean it will not come here to.:)

    What if the GNex doesn't release within the 14 day period? Are you then stuck with "rental" phone? Since there still isn't a solid release date for the GNex, I wouldn't want to buy something else, knowing I want the GNex, and get stuck with the 'something else' if the release date is pushed back.

    You are correct... I never said any of that was anything other than speculation.

    It is also exactly what everyone else is doing when they say it is Verizon's fault. But you are sure I am the one that is wrong because it is not your opinion right?

    EDIT: by the way. Aren't you the one who told everyone that your mom's piano teachers friends dogs babysitter third cousin said the galaxy nexus would be released on the 18th? How is that speculation working out for you. Just sayin.

    Oh yeah, forgot about that. Did the rep confirm that it'll apply to phones that are activated, too? I know before there was some question about whether it applied to just unactivated phones.

    Ah, I see everyone's a bit more chill now. I guess I'll retake my seat

    /takes seat

    So the good news is that my dad used his upgrade, and he shipped me his old Touch Pro2, which is in excellent condition (unlike mine). The bad news is that he upgraded to an iPhone :(

    I didn't have the heart to tell him to wait for the Nexus.

    But yeah, this wait is going to be so much more bearable for me now that I have a functioning phone! Yay!

    [/coolstorybro]

    So I feel as if the Droid-Life Nexus roundup (at least the title) was more than a little unfair.
    "Only 16GB Version in the US, No Flash Support, Vodafone Still Testing, and No USB Mass Storage"?

    All of those are half-truths/straight-up-lies :mad:

    Anyway, yeah, I'm back ;)

    I've been literally racking my brains for the last day trying to figure out the truth about this internal storage thing. I have no idea what to do. The Source already said the phones will be 32 gb.

    Sigh. I'm on the verge of giving up on this.

    Thanks krohnjw, I didn't know that. I guess what I should've just said is that seeking out MTP apps & libraries and the ability to install and use them is probably way beyond the average non-developer Linux user, especially if they're using a Linux distribution/version for which a precompiled prepackaged version isn't already available. I don't know how cumbersome it is on Macs.

    But that all being said, I understand the legitimate technical reasons why they can't offer simultaneous external block-level access to the same filesystem that the OS is running on. Just give us a damn microSD card!

    She didn't even know about that promotion until I mentioned it to her, then, she copied the section out of the return policy and pasted it in the chat. So, no, she didn't confirm really.
