brain fart, is the internal memory still fat32? or is it stupid yaff2?
I'd toss it out and get a new one....
Just thought I'd let you know that I find your avatar amusing
"Pedobear Spotted in Galaxy Nexus Commercial"
FWIW (almost nothing) the one person I talked to yesterday that seemed to have any idea what was going on (at a VZW corporate store) said that it would be available "later this week", and "online and in stores on the same day"
I edited my original post but I see you were to quick and caught my error.
Today I called a store... they wouldn't even play ball when I brought up the Nexus. No, "it's coming soon" or "call back on ______"... but then I called *611, and got a pretty cool guy on the phone. I was panicking due to a rumor that the phone being on the iconic list would prevent me from upgrading to it, and I started out by saying "I know you can't talk about the Nexus, won't even acknowledge that it exists... but I just need to know about" blah blah blah. It seemed to throw him off his "scripted response" and he started talking to me like I was his friend. He told me that he's just as much in the dark as we are and that he hasn't had an hour go by without 12 people calling in asking about the Nexus. He said that all they were told was that the 9th is no longer the date, and not to sell the phone until the 15th no matter what.
It was nice to not feel like I was being lied to for the first time by a VZW employee. I know a lot of people are skeptical as to believe the 15th is real or not, but after today I'm starting to believe it. That doesn't mean that won't postpone again, but at least as of now, it's nice to have a date. Hell, it was nice to have the 9th last week. Take it with a grain of salt, but we're getting close!!!
Lol. It does it on all 3 batteries!
But if the Unicorn is coming then I'll not concern myself
OG Inc is incredibly finicky when on a charger not exactly specified at the right mA. Are you using the "green" charger from Verizon? It causes all kinds of touchscreen issues.
you're doing it wrong!
Gah, I wasn't so lucky. Apparently to be eligible for the promotion you had to be eligible for an upgrade between October and December of '11. I've had my upgrade ready since October of 2010. Oh well, I'll still try with the DL flyer.
Awesome. Can't wait for Thursday.
Hmm my store is apparently still employing the "we know nothing" approach. Just called and the guy gave me the normal "we don't know when it will be out and don't have any in stock" answers. Annoying.
Question. If a Verizon CSR has applied a $50 discount to the notes on your account, can the discount be used at a Verizon "Premium Retailer" store or only at Verizon Corporate Stores?
There were rumors that they couldn't get them stable consistently at 1.5 ghz, which is why its clocked at 1.2 to begin with.
I can't find any solid proof one way or the other. Seems to be articles taking both sides. Either it being under clocked for power savings, or under clocked for stability reasons.
You mean a tropical depression...lol
Note: meant to be a joke... and how do I hide text for a post from within the app?
Sure. There absolutely won't be anything better just on the horizon by the time next fall rolls around. Oh wait?
Yup. I am. I use it as a supplement cause I have the external charger too and the one I had charging wasn't quite done. That'll teach me to forget the extended battery at home
I see that now. It must have been location based though because I live on the border of Monmouth and Ocean, but I work in Mercer and didn't get it. Odd.
Jackson Hole is on my bucket list for sure. One day I'll be able to afford it...
The 15th you say huh?
So unless we hear differently (like last week), anyone else planning on staying up Wednesday night into the wee hours hoping online orders begin?
Quoting myself to note an addendum: The very nice CSR I spoke to just now was specifically from the promotions department. She said that VZW typically runs training for any new promotions about a day before they're due to take effect. She suggested I call back the day before whenever the rumors speculate that the Nexus is supposed to release (she conceded that the system still does not have a definite date listed, but that Internet rumors are often accurate) and see if any new promotions involving the Nexus have been introduced.
Just an FYI for everyone.
