    Same here. Until Verizon says so, I am fully expecting it to NOT launch this week at all. Everyone is talking like the 15th IS THE DAY, like it's a fact. It is far from it.

    If nothing else, the fact that it has a new OS that will be on many of their phones, in all of ranges, next year, should warrant some marketing, regardless if the specs of this phone appeal more to geeks.

    If you're talking about the TV show, it's excellent.

    Very good. Preferably served chilled, with a nice pinot.

    Sorry. I couldn't help myself.

    Edit: Ninja'd, with an appropriate, helpful response.

    I hope for all the VZW CSRs' sakes that the phone does launch on time. Who knows how many angry/drunk/overhyper Skyrim fans are lurking on this thread. We'll start seeing news stories about store employee assaults mentioning "crazed customers" talking like Gollum about a late Nexus with reports of multiple injuries of employees from taking arrows and other sharp objects in the knee. Or, at the least, pelted in the knees with old Droid 1s.

    Verizon hasn't had any PR's at all this week so far. I'm hoping the silence is a good thing.

    Yeah, I never saw Parent Trap.

    Oh no, don't worry, they took those out. haha. To be honest, it doesn't even look like her. They did a lot of air brushing and computer work.

    I called VZW today, about the $100 promo. She found it when I said the "3g to 4g" promotion. She said I was elgible (I live in the Charlotte, NC area), and that either the loyalty department or the local corp store could give it, and it WOULD stack on top of the NE2 discount, as well. She said to just be sure the store gave it to me when I buy, or to have them call the loyalty department to get it done.

    You can find it online. I know that Perez idiot has it somewhere, that's where the girlfriend showed them to me.

    It doesn't even look like Lohan. And she has a tiny butt.

    I agree. How do you NOT promote a new OS? What better time then the first time it releases?

    Known issue with our software, glitches occasionally like that.

    Anyway - just trying to accommodate everyone.

    My new verizon store friend texted me and said that this Thursday is definitely on!

    I'm betting if you guys call the stores around you, there will be a more positive message now. They must've just gotten official word or something!

    So can you clarify? You don't think the phone will release this week? Just making sure.

    Okay why is it everyone else's CSR's have gotten emails about the 15th but mine havent? Just called one store "The Galaxy Nexus? There's no timetable for release." Really now? No timetable at all? I really have to hold back my anger at this point.
