Has anyone outside the Midwest gotten this to work? I'm in pa and already got them to let me upgrade early, not sure I want to push it by trying for the $100 off if I'm not eligible...
Does anybody know for sure if the $100 promo code applies to those in the Northeast? I just spent 45 mins talking to a customer service rep and she said that the offer is only valid to those in the Midwest. I gave her CH4NGE and CH4NGE2, she was very helpful and double checked on both of them, but said neither one would be valid for me due to my location. Anyone get anywhere on this?

My work group went out to breakfast this morning and the restaurant was next to a Radio Shack. I figured it wouldn't hurt to stop in and ask.
I asked if he knew anything about the Galaxy Nexus. His immediate, almost too quick response was, "I know I can't sell you one." We talked a bit and he said he had them (notice the plural) in the back but had no idea when he could sell them. He also said he gets calls daily about the phone.
That surprised me because this is a somewhat remote RS and there is a BJ's in the same plaza with a corporate store less than a mile away. I never seriously considered going to Radio Shack. If the lesser of three stores has "them" and is getting a lot of calls, then I imagine the demand for these is more than just geeks. It really will be the Nexus breakout phone.
Finally, my visit degraded into a spec war between the sales guy and myself, each throwing out a different spec.
"1.2ghz clock speed"
In the end I out geeked him, blew the smoke from my guns and strutted out of the store, knowing I had defeated a man who was probably just waiting to complete college in order to get a better job. I made an enemy for life.
Still, I have no regrets.
Now now children. Settle down.
The only things I'll be putting on the phone right away are my wallpapers and the back up files from a couple apps.
So yesterday I walked in at a Verizon store that's a bit farther from my work and not the one where the rep got fired. They didn't have a demo that I could see, but the rep was very friendly and seemed to know what he was talking about and gave me his card with his cell on it.
I texted him last night:
(Yes, I was baiting him a bit.)
He got back to me a few minutes ago:
Eh, who knows.
I wonder why...
lol yea I gathered that, I'm talking about the dates in the picture
What do you mean by "got" it? I called to see if I was eligible but they said it would all have to go through at checkout. Did you get a coupon mailed or anything like that so as to ensure you get the deal on that fateful day?
Thanks for any info guys/gals!
edit: is that CH4GE a code?
yes, but in the top right, it has the run dates for the price as 12/15-12/20/11
edit: ninja'd but also adding a photo with the dates circled for visual assistance!
12/15/11 to 12/20/11... sounds about right to me.
I measured mine and I think it's 4.65 as claimed, see my explanation at the bottom of that thread.
I've been in constant communication via SMS as well with a few sales people from 1 reseller and 2 corp stores. They're all feeding me the same top secret info for the 15th. I believe them
i got it to work from TN, not considered by vzw to be midwest according to their tumblr page.
but like has been said a million times and for whatever reason people are overlooking it, having it noted on your account that you qualify and actually getting the discount in the store are 2 different things. it may very well be the case that when you go to checkout, the store will not or may not be able to give it to you. have to wait and see.
edit: i also mentioned earlier and didnt get noticed as well, the rep i spoke with on the phone specifically told me that the promo is not applied at checkout, but rather sent to you in 4-6 weeks n the form of a verizon $100 debit card
Koo=Cool? so maybe your name is on one.
12-20 is that when the flyer renews, or is that the launch dates any time between 12-15 to 12-20
Why do people expect every single memo, drawing, etc to come out of a corporate environment to look like its been drawn by a world renowned artist? Things like these aren't for public consumption, they are for internal use. Planograms especially come in all kinds of styles. Fake or not, this is definitely acceptable.
If I was him I would be like why the heck is this guy texting me..
