    Just to be clear I had absolutely no issues activating the Nexus.

    I even made 3 calls on it. If you notice my screenshot I have the voice mail indicator on the screen from the store that left me a message.

    The odd part is the "couldn't make a phone call" bug as the supposed explanation for the delay. SamMax received calls the phone that SamMax temporarily had, and that's how Verizon was able to leave a message to bring it back.

    I'm worried about you.

    I work up the road.

    Going to guess a lot of that has to do with you having a phone that's working fairly well as opposed to the OG Droid that was dying on you. You aren't feeling the need for a phone as keenly as you were. Combine that with other shiny objects competing for your attention (Tprime), and you're not as 'needy' of the Gnex as you were say a month ago.

    I am from SW Minnesota originally (wearing my Vikings polo today, definitely NOT a fair weather fan) so I know what you mean about that stuff. Living in GA is nice, summer tires year round.

    I have a feeling more will be revealed. You never know, but that's my feeling.

    Its getting tight for me now as I am traveling on the 17th.

    I called the once confident Costco rep who yesterday was feathering the tether nest at the Kiosk as we spoke and he responded today .......

    "I'm sorry Mr. gapi, but this doggoned Verizon Yo-Yo phone has made a donkey of me for the last time. All I will say from this point is if we have it or not. I'm worn out on the thing. I have phones sitting here because customers keep looking for that one."

    Because its thin. It doesn't feel like a big hollow peice of plastic like the charge did.

    It's far weighter than I expected it to be. Feels perfect IMO, much like the OG Incredible did.

    For anyone who has followed this thread or others in the past regarding phone releases are the weekends usually slow with leaks or info?

    Thanks!!

    I'm still new to this game.

    I've yelled this meme in forums on cellphones for YEARS. So annoying to me this isn't even an option. And when a company such as T-Mo does offer unsubsidized pricing for plans if I am not mistaken they give you a pretty crap discount compared to the sorts of incentive money it seems retailers get for selling devices.

    I think to make this happen, we consumers need to DEMAND that it does. Tell them we don't want a contract and subsidized pricing, but rather better monthly cost and pay whatever the device costs from whomever we want. As long as most customers are happy with the subsidy regime we are stuck I am afraid as no other carriers seem to want to set things up different.

    How about:
    Body: We're so sorry for treating you like insignificant pawns in our corporate games and have decided to subsidize the full cost of your phones because it's the least we can do to make up for our awful treatment of you. You deserve better.

    Yeah right after I put that, "Secret Santa" via OTD gave us a nice little bit of info. I can definitely live with that delivery, just saying, can get more real time info the other way.

    News usually slow. Off topic chatter abounds.

    Villa Rosa. Brothers is in Oakland now. We have Puzos and Tastee too but not nearly as good IMO
