    Do you want the truth or should I lie?

    Bad radio. Mine was as solid a radio as I've ever seen. I think it was definitely one of the reasons that battery life was so good on mine.

    just saw the confirmation that google wallet is the issue, and i am shocked!

    i was led to believe that google/samsung were trying to put out a shoddy phone and that benevolent verizon was keeping my pure hands from being tainted by such a despicable device, thus the reason for all the delays

    i guess we haven't gotten *official* complaints from google/samsung though, so maybe it's not true

    The more I hear about this fiasco, the more Im inclined to wait. I don't see verizon not finding a way to shoehorn themselves into the process somehow. Anybody find it ironic that verizon was able to have their apps while there's drama over google wanting to include wallet? I may just wait until spring when it shows up on other carriers.

    Back when I first got my Inc I tried 3 different ones. Ghost, Stein, and VZ's brand. The Stein was by far the nicest as far as being invisible and having similar consistency to the glass on-screen. Picture is with the Crystal Clear installed

    So for some of you who may not know, I currently have no phone at all- Imagine how bad I am waiting for the GN! To those who are talking about the phone possibly being canceled- get your mind out of the gutter!!

    OT:
    Well, if you get really nostalgic for the battle can pop over my way.. a few years back the woods behind my house became protected land when a contractor stumbled across trenches while preparing to clear it for yet another neighborhood of townhomes.. turns out they were emplacements from the first battle of Bull Run. Since then, I get archaeologists from the local universities showing up every summer to practice their excavation techniques.

    Interesting it came to be the case. My boy at one of my local re-sellers texted me yesterday morning with confirmation that wallet was the reason for the delay. I'm sticking with him he's been great!

    Where have you eaten in Austin? Obviously not the right places. The food here is amazing.

    I'll chime in to food talk, doesn't really have anything to do with meats from Texas or burgers, but since I moved to SC from central NY, I miss good food. Actual pizza, not this Pizza Hut, Domino's and Pappa John's crap. NY pizza is the best thing in the world to me right now because I miss it so much. That and everywhere I go other than CNY, the wings suck even worse. Wings anywhere around the country other than the Buffalo/CNY area are just puny and awful. Plus how I grew up was a strict Italian food diet :) mmmmm. Thank God my sister down here knows how to make sauce and riggies or I would have died already...

    Anyone ever try Skinomi? I'm leaning towards that but feel like it'd be a pain the *** to put on.. but don't really feel like playing 30+ for a Zagg and Installation from best buy

    Haha I actually didn't mind taking a break from society for a few days. But now its been a little over my limit and I must say I need a damn phone now as I was expecting the 8th release. My girlfriend can't keep tabs on me and that's driving her nuts :p.

    Food OT: Z-Burger > Five Guys in terms of burgers but nothing beats Five Guys fries.

    BBQ? There is a place here in Baltimore owned and operated by a former Baltimore Colt called Andy Nelson's Barbecue. Amazing.

    I agree, the Steins are the BEST ones. I don't know if i tried them all but i have tried a ton of them. Stein is by far the nicest ones , IMHO
