    I'm seeing lots of people saying that they're "making appointments" with their VZW stores. Is this really necessary? I can't think of a store, even here in downtown Boston, that would be so busy (especially at 8 AM, which is when I'll be going) that an appointment would be needed.

  3. I live in Michigan, called 3 stores in the Ann Arbor area, and none would honor the promotion. One woman told me that VZW doesn't use promo codes and the CH4GE wasn't something that Verizon would put on a promotion... ugh!

    I don't get why everyone hates it so much when the Title is changed. Who cares this forum is all speculation that is the current accepted date. If you don't believe it that's fine and you are entitled to your opinion. But if Steven58 wants to change it let him it doesn't hurt.

    So we have to call 611 to get this applied to our account?? I can't use that code at checkout and get anything while attempting an online order as it stands so you must have to request your account be made available to the promo?

    I called *611 and talked to Regina. She could not find the promotion listed in her computer. She said if it wasn't listed under my account then I was not eligible. I asked her if there were any other promotions that I could use. I was placed on hold (2 min). She returned and said "yes, sir you can use that promotion. She said that it is in addition to my $50 loyalty discount, but expires Dec. 31. Galaxy Nexus now $149.99(if it drops this year)

    Ok, gotta share (so i got the phandroid app...im officially addicted to you people...)

    Anyways, did the final bit of xmas shopping for the gf. Right outside victorias secret is a vzw corporate kiosk. So i talked to the nice man there about the phone. He HAS them, but the official word for release has not trickled down. Long story short, he gave me the demo unit without my asking.

    First impression: wow. It feels simply amazing in the hand, and feels as solid of construction as my OG Droid. I think the screen is phenominal. The keyboard is amazingly responsive.

    Gripe? Underwhelmed by the camera. Then again, the blur i noticed was likely due to me shaking in excitement.

    I will probably buy from this guy, simply because he was no-nonsense. And its close to work, can grab it before punching in!

    So theres my story...

    Usually when Steven or another MOD update the title they also update the OP so take a look at that and it will usually have info and or links there for you to check out.

    Good Luck! But Don't be surprised if it does not apply to the GN because the phone was not in the system when the promo was created.. Let us know, with pics?

    No, it will. I told the CSR I was going to upgrade from the Dinc2 to the Gnex, and she said it would work.

    Applies to all 4G phones.

    You're right and it's all speculation and he can change it to whatever he wants. But you lose credibility and respect every time. He could change it to a thread about cats for all I care, I just come here for Galaxy Nexus Information and Speculation. But that means if you want to be the best and be the front runner (which at the moment we have been and regardless of my opinion's AF will probably maintain) then you should Vet your info a bit more and should post what you know not let emotions run wild and start posting what you hope/want.

    It's all rumors. But taking a rumor saying "yup, looks like more rumors/info leaning towards the 15th" and translating that into "THURSDAY IS THE DAY" is a far stretch, especially regarding our knowledge of history on this phone and Verizon Wireless.

    I just want the information that comes through AF to be credible and realistic. If that's not the case, then take the forums where you want. I'll just go find a better website or thread that knows how to take their emotions out of it and post the facts so that I can get as much unbiased information about when I can actually expect this phone.

    I know this. and I check it. I guess I just need to remember everything is rumors. It just really excites me to see a definitive "THIS DAY IS THE DAY" and then realize it's the same ol' same ol'. O VZW, what have you done to me?

    I went to Radio Shack Sunday. I asked about the GNEx. The first lady knew nothing. Then a manager came up and told me to come with him. In the back of the store was a room with a cage that was locked. Sure enough there was only one Gnex in a white box. The manager was very nice and let me play around with it. He even called his District Manager to see if he could sell it to me. I still don't have my phone so you know what they answer was.

    The csr I talked with specifically said it would apply to any 4g smartphone including the Gnex.

    Does Verizon offer any type of option to add the upgrade/phone amount to your monthly bill in order to split up the $300?

    The promotional code is 'CH4GE'.

    The rep I talked to said that his district manager is making them setup appointments for the Nexus. Not sure why either, regardless, I have one at 9 am.....I'm actually really interested to see how many people are actually there.
