    Leak & Nexus = not official until Verizon has the phone up on their website.

    I cant even imagine the chaos in here if Verizon puts it on their site randomly tonight or even maybe early evening

    P.S. you need to learn how to make use of the quote button woman.

    Well if she buys it tomorrow that means there is no way the phone is getting pushed back, right?

    Situational language doesn't somehow change vernacular. Plenty of people read just the front page, thread tag and move on-it's a bit unfair. On that note, it's been absurd to read it and find that "confirmed" has officially changed meaning based on this thread.

    I know there's been many "I called" stories, I just got a kick out of this one.

    Called a reseller, asked do you know when the galaxy nexus will be released? He laughs, "I do not... even if i di... you see they wont let me... *laugh* sorry I don't know" He then claimed he was hearing rumors of thursday. I was entertained by him dodging around the whole situaiton. The reseller I called right before this guy said "in front of us we're seeing the 15th. stock will be limited in the first run. can i get your number to call you tomorrow with any updates?" I gave him a number, wait and see now. Both stores claimed to have no stock

    I live in RI and was in an southern Massachusetts corp. store yesterday, they said for sure Thursday (rep was told by the district manager) and today BB said yes for Friday.

    I'm feeling better about this weeks release than last week. Last week I was getting the usual "we no nothing" answers.

    Well I am sorry that after this phone has been pushed back several times you would believe anything that isn't an official Verizon PR, let alone believing a thread on a message board.

    Indeed, but nothing is absolute. If there is another delay she would know by the time she leaves work tomorrow and therefore would not purchase the phone. At this moment she is bringing one home tomorrow.

    I'm sorry, like most rumors and VZW sales guy's promises, they are utterly meaningless.

    I mean I have to vent here a bit. The misleading thread title (and make no mistake about it, it IS misleading) said Thursday is the day. Around that time, I lost count of how many guys said their VZW store 'confirmed' the Thursday release date.

    Now I come here a day later, the thread title is the same, but most are reporting their VZW store is now saying 'nope, no Thursday release'. So am I to believe that these guys get emails every day saying 'release, no release, release, no release'. Please, nonsense!!!

    Guys, I call major big time BS to all of this crap. Not only do I now believe these rumors are ALL wrong, the misleading thread title needs to be changed for the 100th time, nobody has the slightest clue what they're talking about and we're all fools for believing ANY of this. In fact, for the first time Im willing to accept the fact this phone may never see the light of day here. Best case scenario IMO is what I mentioned here awhile back when my non-corporate VZW store told me his buddy that works for Google said January.

    What a joke. I've got to be the biggest jackass for waiting for this.

    OK, I feel better now...not really. :rolleyes:

    Well be sure to let us know if she does, especially if there isn't much word from Verizon tomorrow :)

    Used to be a picture there of a Galaxy Nexus but it was the GSM version. Now they don't have a picture and if you look at the more comments underneath it, the store makes a comment saying they had to remove it.

    Where are those posts? I'm not seeing any "nope. not Thursday" responses, mostly just "we have no information to share". Those are not one in the same. I think most corporate employees fear for their jobs. I sure as hell wouldn't be volunteering information if it meant my job. ;)
