    It is really odd that stores and reps have such varying stories. I could see the misinformation being an issue with a device that was rushed out, but I would think with the Nexus, after all this time, Verizon would've made some sort of cohesive place for this release. Still, I think the different stories we are getting - ranging from it is definitely coming out Thursday to knowing absolutely nothing - is due to a combination of some employees being more tight-lipped than others and some employees repeating hearsay and rumors with certainty.

    This really does make me wonder why, if the phone is set to release in two days, Verizon doesn't just come out and say it to maintain the credibility of their employees. I can't see any business reason for them to allow so much misinformation to be spread about a device that is dropping in less than 48 hours. If the device is still facing problems, then I don't blame Verizon for keeping it quiet; but if it is really set for release on Thursday, at this stage I don't see the use in allowing their employees to continue to give different stories to customers.

    I'm with you in that this makes me think the 15th may be still a target and not a certainty, but I'm retaining optimism that Verizon and/or their employees are bungling this release and that the 15th is a go.

    If it does come out the 15th, I won't be going to any of the stores that lied to me about it. Granted, I'm getting it from my buddy so he can get the commission - but I wouldn't be going to any of the stores that intentionally gave me bad information.

    Yes, I realize this would disqualify any store with a 25 mile radius for a lot of you. :p

    Wow, so they are going to announce it a week after it is available? Nice.

    From what I have heard, Verizon corporate stores have good stock, so I don't think it'll be an issue. That being said, I'm making sure to get to my Verizon store at opening :)

    Any word from Cheetara about vzw nixing the 15th release? Or is she still hearing the 15th?

    Galaxy Nexus to go on sale this week? | Android Atlas - CNET Reviews

    Even Cnet is jumping on the 15th. The writer says the Nexus has lost its appeal for him because he "wouldn't be surprised to see multiple devices announced in the next two months, already running Android 4.0 and offering more powerful hardware."

    Sure it will be announced in the next two months and released on Verizon in 6 - 8 months.

    That's why I find this odd. One store told me last week that it would possibly be out the 9th but that wasn't sure yet. This week, same store, the rep was extremely short with me and acted like I was a bother to even ask such a question. It's a phone I really want and I have the money to buy it and he would make money off of me...why would that be a bother to anyone? The Radio Shack is the only place that has been honest with me and helpful so that's where I'll be buying it.

    I ported when I came from T-mo years ago. Painless process and a lot faster than 3-24hrs.

    I THINK (operative word, here) that they would wait to port your number until after you've received the phone.

    Very off topic but i live in New Jersey and i figured i would have to get SOMETHING accomplished today, so i've been meaning to go to the police station to file for a firearms ID card and to get a Pistol Permit. Now the wait begins for that to be approved.

    Anyone into guns in here? Any ideas for a good first handgun? I've been shooting with my girlfriends dad and i got hooked so since then i've shot a plethera of handguns multiple .22s .45s and 9s, haven't shot any other hand guns but have also had my eye out on posibly getting an assault rifle, really liking the AR15 or M4 style rifles with pistol grips, have shot a few as well and they are damn nice. Any ideas?

    You're the store manager? What did the email from Verizon say, exactly? Is there any chance we could see a picture of it?

    Oh, no! I hate hearing that! Hope he beats it second go around. Cancer research has come a long way and they can cure so much more than they could even a year ago. Did he not go through chemo after the first surgery?

    I think it is more individual store managers that are the cause of this variation. Some are sticklers for the rules, some want their employees to have the best shot at commission as possible, so let them be free with the info.

    Are you allowed to post the email or at least quote it?

    Does the planogram below have any truth behind it?

    Any physical proof (pic of email?) you can give us? Sorry but you have to understand the skeptic in most of us at this point.

    Edit: unsurprisingly ninja'd about 10 times lol
