    same here, got an opthalmologist appointment at 8am, hospital orientation at 930 for a hospital Ill never physically go to at 930. Hopefully be done with all that by 1200 or so and be able to scrounge up a nexus somewhere if they actually go on sale.

    I need some suggestions for a decent case. Don't want to break the bank and have to spend 24.99 at the Verizon store for one. Any suggestions?

    Without question! If I'm going on vacation, or anywhere out of the norm, my Nikon D5100 is along for the ride. Europe? Without a doubt, I would not be relying on the camera on a phone. Convergence only takes you so far, if you want to produce something of quality, often you HAVE to go with a dedicated device.

    So is that $100 promo thingy only for upgrades? Gonna be buying at full retail, so I'm guessing this thing wouldn't apply. Anyone?

    Same except on Thursday. However it was "communicated by regional manager verbally" was the story I got. That came from someone who I would consider a great friend. So I feel certain that he is telling me the truth. Obviously that can all change in the blink of an eye however. Also very possible the person telling him that has no actual idea as well.

    Called three corp. stores: One still saying the date was pushed back and a new one hasn't been announced, other two didn't answer...

    Great news. I hope my local Verizon don't run out of stock by noon on Thursday, because that's when I'm going in. Seeing the "very low stock" from the equipment guide last week, plus hearing that Radioshacks are only getting 1 phone apiece is worrying me on that front.

    Anyway, I'm afraid I'll jinx it, but THREE MORE DAYS!!!!

    I really doubt Verizon is going to update the equipment guide with a release date until wed. evening. I don't think there will be an announcement at all, and if they decide to it won't happen until wed. evening.

    Calling Verizon CSR asking questions is not going to provide any new info...they are being kept out of the loop on this release because of what happened during the last release date.

    That's my opinion.....:cool:

    I stopped at a Corporate Verizon and they said they weren't sure when it was coming out. The reason I stopped in Verizon was to ask about making a purchase over the phone whenever it does release since I used my last vacation day on the 9th and now have to work this Thursday. I was told no problem as long as you have a bill to on you account. I assume that means a credit card, not sure, but he checked my account and said I was good. So if any of you have to work that day (hopefully the 15th) this may be an option to make sure you get yours.

    I have an avatar all ready for if/when we get an actual press release. I love doing the avatars but someone found me one for when this is all over and I can't wait to load her in and keep her there for a while. :D

    I've called CSR twice now.. just got off the phone with one 2 mins ago. Asking about the 3g/4g 100$ upgrade.

    The first CSR said she couldn't find anything.

    So I called again and was put on hold this time since they were going to look.

    The 2nd CSR said she found a promotion that applied to "mobile broadband device" not "phones. So afterwards i told her the promo code.

    She said that possibly when you go and order the phone online enter the code and maybe it will work.

    I don't live in the mid-west.. Charlotte, NC here.. but am upgrading for a 3g device.. am I out of the running? Or were people outside of the midwest lucky to get it on their accounts?

    So, I called my nearest Verizon corporate store today and talked with a CSR there who said that they had the phone in stock and the launch had been delayed. He said that the phone would be available Thursday.

    I know, I know yet another CSR story, but I talked with the CSR before The Source's announcement, so I thought I would chime in here.

    This is my first post on this thread although I've been a forums member for a while.

    No Joke. and as excited as we have been before. I said this back then a few times. Please don't put "THURSDAYS THE DAY" in the title if it's not verizon official.

    No offense to the source or anyone. But we have no more confirmation today than we have for any other day. Please just stop messing with people and hyping this up. There have been at least 4 dates that you have said confirmed before. I don't have time to sift thru hundreds of pages of posts and I kind of live by the title/updates. So it's a giant bummer to see a title like that only to see that the same person that confirmed 2 other dates is now confirming a 3rd.

    Was anyone able to get the $100 off using the code if they were told they are outside of the regional discount?
