    Oh I know. I just don't believe any rumors now. Any discussion of a date I just try to brush off. I do think just because of my own logic that it will be released this week. However, I thought the same in early November. I didn't put much faith it it being released late November or the 9th. I really hoped it would, but didn't believe it. With the phone being IN the stores, I know, I personally held the very one Radio Shack is going to sell me...they only got one in...I just don't see a reason they would allow a whole bunch of phones to sit in the stock room taking up space and not sell them the week before Christmas.

    I don't buy this not releasing till January either because releasing right before Christmas is close enough to the new year that people will flock to the stores once the buzz gets out beyond our little niche and they'll see good sales through January on this phone anyway.

    Hehe, so true. I'm quite positive now that we are all sick. "Doctor, it hurts when I do this." :p

    We saw how utterly stupid they were when they missed Black Friday.

    Dammit. This really is how it started last week. People were doubting the 9th and were ridiculed. Cheetara told me to take my meds and that she would be free of me after last week. Then the shoe dropped.

    Well, there's one shoe left. And those who doubt the 15th are doubtless being seen as being unreasonable.




    All this has happened before and will happen again.

    So say we all.

    And imagine the the marketing opportunity it'll create for people to have their Nexus in hand during Christmas/New Year time and showing it off to all their relatives/friends. Word of mouth is still powerful in terms of advertising.

    I've been trying to get the $100 3G to 4G bonus by calling CSR's, 3 so far have turned me down. I'm going to keep trying, but also wanted to try to live chat, but can't find where to start one on the web site. Does anybody know where to go to do this?

    I think this is perhaps the most frustrating of all... We hear the rumors of the date, and the amount of confirmations start to reach fever pitch, and then our most reliable sources confirm the date, and the next day, kerplunk. Twice now its happened like this.

    This should be posted to the first post in the thread if you ask me. The direct number to Verizon Telesales is 866-745-4679. Their hours are 8am to 11pm ET.

    I call them every day at 8am, and if I'm bored I'll also call once in the evening. This is how I got the accessories from them, calling a couple times a day asking about the phone and then the accessories.

    So now the 15th isn't even looking good? Honestly, if it doesn't release this week, I'm wondering if we'll see it in 2011 at all. Why start selling it the week before Christmas? That's an automatic sales week, people HAVE to buy something if they were planning on going the new phone route for gifts. And can you really see them releasing anything in that lost week between Christmas and New Years when nobody does anything? I think it's this week or bust for 2011.

    Someone I know who interviewed with vzw corporate for a job was told the 22nd back on the 5th. I was afraid to mention it here more than once way back when because everyone has someone who told them something. If it comes before the 22nd I'll be pleasantly surprised, but not really worrying or holding out much hope. We'll all get it eventually.

    We're blowing up over 1 Rumor. Take a step back from the ledge until we hear a little more confirmation on the matter.

    Not to mention the "inside sources" have been correct as far as we can tell. We do this at work all the time, plan for this date, oh crap not ready let's push to this date and re-evaluate as we get closer.

    As hundreds have said, there is no way of knowing when we will get the phone. There can be thousands of leaks indicating when the next planned release date is, but if they can't finish whatever they are working on in time then they have to push back to a new date.

    All of these rumored dates (at least in terms of 9th and 15th) are almost assuredly planned dates and the only people who know if they will stick to this date are the people that are testing whatever issue they are having and the top execs.

    Best Buy, Radio Shack, and the majority of local VZW reps rarely even know the planned release date let alone how the testing is coming.


    To those saying "my radio shack rep said still come in on the 15th," these are the sources that were the most wrong. Just like last time, your reps that say still come in this day will either call to cancel or cancel when you arrive. These reps simply have not received the cancellation of the planned release dates (that they may or may not have received in the first place).


    There are very common themes here that people (including myself) are desperately trying to ignore.


    TL;DR: Rumors are of planned release dates only; they give no indication of whether product will be ready for this date. Local reps are more in the dark than AF is so appointments are no indicator.

    Ooops, forgetting OT header... Thanks for reminding me.

    Off-Topic - Potty Training

    Did this for three weeks. no progress. Just lots and lots of puddles and other things. Actually letting her run naked has been the most successful, she won't go unless she has something to catch it. She will go all day with no accidents, using the potty, but the moment you put underwear on her to go somewhere, you have a mess. She knows what to do, she knows when she has to go, she just doesn't care.

    Ugh. Not me. On the 19th I'll be at Best Buy at opening to check to see if the TP is there. If it is, I'm nabbing it and saying bon voyage to Verizon's overripe melon.

    They can't do it on live chat, it's gotta be on the phone.

    Ugh, this stuff makes me not want to read anymore... It was bad, reading the "News" on Google every day, until I found this forum. Then, to get hope over and over again here is wearing thin on me.

    I just want to buy the GD PHONE! Is that so friggin' HARD!?

    that's the thing, it ALWAYS starts with that 1 rumor. I truly believe for the real release date we won't hear any contradiction.

    Not that we need to get knee deep in $100 discount conversation again
    (lord knows we had tons of that last night)
    BUT by the time I had a chance to call with the new codes last night it was after 11 so they had gone home for the night. I called this a.m. with both codes and neither worked for me. The promotion (as now told by 3 different CSR's on 3 different occasions) is for medium to small business accounts in the Midwest. The CSR took 20 minutes digging for a way to make them work for me and searching for any other promotions that will work for me. There is nothing currently available. I am going to be happy with my last NE2 $50 and my $50 from executive relations and get my Galaxy Nexus for $199. :cool:
