Awesome. Bookmarked for immediate use once I finally get my Nexus.
called one of my local stores and the guy was well aware of the gnex. he joked around a bit told me he didnt know anything but he was first in line haha. he took my name and number down and will let me know when he hears anything. I could tell he was hiding something, especially when he said he would be fired if he told me anything else (joking around still). But it sounded like end of this week would be a stretch, probably next week.
also, hi everyone from the incredible forums that remembers me.
Called my local store here near Scranton, PA and got an immediate and rather angry "No we do not" after asking nicely if they had any info regarding the release.
Looks like Verizon's website just got another sale, and that Verizon store just lost one. I can wait an extra day for shipping. Plus, I can be the first to touch my phone as well.
Hooray for terrible customer service!
(And yes, I realize that it's not their fault if they don't have any information, but the lady was acting as if me calling for information was a crime. The least she could have done was acted to look it up instead of basically cutting me off to get me off the line.)
was anyone expecting the packaging to look more like this?:
I wouldn't waste my time. We will not being seeing anything from Verizon this week. Mark my words.
Guys forget calling, we are all getting to many different answers. I called2 corporate stores. One said no info on release date. The other said before christmas, that they haven't even gotten training on it yet but they have gotten the accessories but not for sale lol, amazing. Also called a verizonwireless authorized dealer which almost looks like a corporate store. She said Thursday afternoon. I call back and say where did you get this info because other stores say no clue. She says no, that is the release date, you can google it HAHAHAHAH awesome.
I never forget a Dbag
If I remember correct, did you use to have a Penguins avatar?
Nothing yet. No one answering
I think people are excited about the release (duh!) and are calling their local stores to see who will have it in stock, as well as calling to collaborate info, since there has clearly been a ton of misinformation.
Just got off the phone with a rep and they told me that 12/9 is the date for new contracts while 12/8 is the date for upgrades. I guess Verizon is doing something special for current customers to ensure those of us who currently are customers are basically guaranteed we will get it the day it becomes available.
You can call my store: (815) 756-2355
The guy who dropped the pics of the packaging is saying "end of week" is best case scenario but that "end of next week" is more likely.
Aah ha ha ha!!
Just got of the phone with Gallatin, TN store. He says that the 9th is the day. I asked him where that information came from and he said "our internal system, not some blog or something".
I see alot of you guys calling corporate stores. I got my "confirmation" from a retail store. Are those different?
Got Michael on the phone. Told him I had friends in Georgia (it was a stab in the dark as to picking a state) that were able to make appointments for pick up on Friday. He said he is waiting for it too and hasn't seen anything but he knows it will be relatively soon. Said to call again tomorrow if I want to check again. Hung up.
*sniffle sniffle, whispering I just want my Nexus*
ahh yessir, i remember you too and all your help over there
Now that is pretty interesting. I'd been kind of wondering why the rumors seem to be about 50% for the 8th and 50% for the 9th. That would explain it: *both* dates might be correct.
Im hoping for a pre-order, only because I can't get to a store on Friday. So I am hoping for web orders soon, for delivery on Thursday or Friday.

. I kid.
I think this week is starting to look very promising. I hope it actually happens. I haven't called any of my local Verizon stores yet but plan to pop into one probably this evening and will ask as Best Buy as well because I need to go there anyway. *Fingers Still Crossed*
I believe most are going off of gut intuition and not an actual VZW document/screen. For example; I stopped in to my store today on my way home to confirm my loyalty discount...
...dang it! I wasn't going to make one of those "stopped at my local store" posts. Redundant info. Moving on.
guess ill meet you there! im in greenbrier and go to gallatin a lot, so ill probably pick it up there
Not necessarily, but maybe. "Retail" just means any store that's selling the phone. Some phones are owned and operated directly by Verizon Wireless (those are the corporate stores); others are owned by other companies, like Best Buy or various local businesses. These are sometimes called "authorized retailers." But the term "retail' by itself is ambiguous; could be either.
Something to lighten the mood (language warning)

Called 8 stores in North Jersey. Typical "We don't have any information yet". :/
