    I was told yesterday that my Costco would be selling the phone tomorrow despite the rumors of the delay. (even the manager knew about the rumors, so it wasn't just some rep uninformed on the situation)

    I called this morning and just hung up right now expecting some bad news of a delay. I was told that the release is still on for tomorrow morning. I'm so close I can taste it...and that has nothing to do with my dessert treat I am eating right now.

    This has to be the most botched release I can think of in a long time.

    Is that good enough to quell your panic attack over privacy law? Geesh, it could have been made up for all you know. No names were used nor were any kittens killed during this event.

    My original source from a VZW non-Corporate store that said January, is looking better and better to me. I really believe his source at Google was 100% right.

    Oh well, now to consider other options.

    Heh but they know you can just call in to activate it provided you have a sim. Here's hoping to RS's negligence though!

    If that is really the case, then kill the Nexus completely and start over from scratch with a new phone. If this phone is not out by next week, VZW will have killed their fan base who are waiting to buy this phone. Really, if it's not released by the end of next week, what is the point in releasing the phone to begin with? With so much turmoil over this release and now a botched release that was supposed to happen tomorrow has been cancelled to no one having the slightest clue as to when the phone will really release, what's the point? VZW is driving it's customers to the point where they really don't care anymore and will look for other means in a cell phone.

    To be honest, and this coming from a current iPhone 4S user on AT&T who is waiting to make the switch, who's been waiting for 1.5 months now, and after seeing how VZW has handled this launch with this supposed to being the latest phone, really has me doubting to make the switch now. Not knocking Apple vs. Droid, and etc, but since I've been with Apple and AT&T from day one with the iPhone, which by the way is far more popular right now at release time than any other phone, they've been flawless with the releases. If this is a sign to come with VZW and how they handle releases, heh I'll gladly keep my money and service with a company that can market and release a phone the way it should be and is intended by the consumer.

    I'll be going to VZW tomorrow night to make the switch from AT&T to VZW simply because I need the service in my office which AT&T does not do for me. I'll pick up the Razr which is a great phone and one I've used for two weeks a month or so ago when it was released until the Nexus is "possibly" released in maybe a week, two, three, or god only knows when it will be released.

    Point is, VZW has done an epic job of killing the Nexus. What was to be a hot phone coming out is not so hot anymore with the way the release has been handled. If I was Google, this would be the last time VZW launched any of my phones and I would look at another carrier to have exclusivity. One that can do things the right way and not make my product a complete embarrassment in this industry.

    Actually AT&T will probably get this before we do. Their exclusivity window given by Google can't last forever.

    Frakking idiots.

    You can switch to T-Mobile. You just won't be able to talk to anyone.

    I just called the local VW store and spoke to the rep there, and was told he has no idea as to when it will be released. However, if I wanted to come in and see the phone, check out the accessories, and get a feeling for what is available I could come in anytime.

    I was trying to see if the GNex with the extended battery would still fit in the dock, or the car mount. He didn't know but said I could come in and check it out.

    So HAN, with that in mind I doubt your rep was fired because he showed it to you when mine invited me in to play with it. (The phone that is.) :D

    My dinc is in the same 'sitch after DLing ADW. This little guy can't take my need to buy all these $.10 apps, especially since I'm still holding one with the data storage bug...

    How bad is VZW going to look tomorrow, because with absolute certainty, some third party retailer somewhere will definitely sell it tomorrow, be it mistake or not. And after sending out the phones to the retail channels, surely vzw doesn't have the authority to tell these retailers that they just have to let the phones sit on their shelves and collect dust until further notice do they??

    And also, in 10-12 months you will likely be apart of either Big Blue or Leap Wireless. And any phone you buy, while it will still work, don't expect any more updates or support. And you will also probably NOT be able to get out of your contract without an ETF.

    One way or another, T-Mobile won't be around next Christmas. They'll either sell most of their customers to Leap Wireless with a backdoor ATT agreement, or ATT will get the merger they want, or DT will pull the plug on their US operations.

    I'm willing to bet my Nexus on it.
