    Can I use my Amazon.com Gift Card on AmazonWireless?
    Amazon.com Gift Cards may not be used on AmazonWireless at this time. However, we are constantly looking at ways to improve our service, and perhaps this will be an option in the future.

    Sorry, I had the same idea too!

    My local corp. store said they are anticipating a release on the 8th but don't have any more information at this time. She said they expect to know more tomorrow. Going to call then

    Otherwise, online order it is for me. Anyone else hoping they start online orders tomorrow night (so they can ship and deliver on Friday). I guess one can hope. :(

    Another dreaded CSR story:

    I went to my local corporate store after work and talked to a CSR. Asked when they would have the Nexus. He went to the back room, came out laughing and said this Friday, then went back to the room to double check and said yep, this Friday the 9th! I asked about pre-orders and he said there wasn't anywhere in their system to preorder yet...I then asked about quantity, and he said i shouldnt worry about running out bc they arent expecting lines or tents set up outside..he said it isnt like an iphone release where everyone and their dog knows that an iphone is coming out that day. So maybe this whole soft launch is a good thing, bc it allows for us to get our Precious before anyone else even knows about it!!Also, he assured me I could come in Friday morning and pick it up from him! So that is that! haha my GF is going to be pissed when i go visit her this weekend! :)

    Called my two closest stores. First had me on hold for 10 minutes. Sounded like she never heard of the thing. Finally came back and said no release date.

    Second store at least knew the phone, but said no release date. She did confirm they've had accessories for a while though.

    Frustrating to say the least.

    Here is a pic taken with my OG Droid at my local Verizon Corporate store with the best forum and my user name shown logged in. This phone is awesome, especially since I will be coming from an OG Droid. I was concerned about the size but after holding it for a while it's going to be a non issue. They told me it won't be for sale until friday though... Almost there what a long journey...

    Face Unlock is so 2011. Meet "Psychic Unlock". It unlocks when you want it to, and doesn't when you don't.
