    I know, a post communicating a failure to communicate fails to communicate.

    Edit: I almost misspelled "communicate".

    FWIW POST!

    Just left a non-corp retail by me. The guy in there was very helpful. He knew all about us and our antics, and confirmed that from his corporate office, the date was the 15th. He added the caveat that it is subject to change, and did not have any stock yet but showed me some of the accessories that he had. Very nice man, and more helpful than anyone I've spoken with so far.

    While I will not buy the phone from him, I will buy all of my accessories from him. The $100 promo is for corporate locations only!

    Again, FWIW.

    Keep in mind that VZW has not once confirmed a single solitary date on the GNex, not once. All the disappointment comes from believing a multitude of UNconfirmed dates from sources that get information from who knows where.

    Thats really bad battery life, I'll most likely switch out to 3g when out and about, or find some auto switcher that will switch from 4g to 3g when i am wifi.

    I think that if Verizon execs say the Gnex is coming out on Day X, and the sources we have communicate that to us, and then Verizon changes its mind, it's not the sources' fault.

    If all we want is definite, 100% confirmed proof, then we have absolutely no alternative other than to await the official announcement from Verizon.
    If that's the case, there is no need for this thread whatsoever.

    But most of us enjoy the speculation (to a point) and appreciate the efforts that our sources give to get us info.

    Thanks! I was told the same thing by a non-corporate store rep.. but he has been more open with everything and let know everything he knew..

    On the otherhand... the corporate store mgr, who I have come to know over the years has been VERY hesitiant to tell me ANYTHING other than he would make sure i got one. SO coming from him... it held more weight ya know?

    I think that was a little unnecessary. A lot of people have the opinion that the only real confirmation will be an official announcement from verizon. I get excited about all the rumors just like everyone else, but we've now had several "confirmed" dates from CSRs and others that haven't panned out. Reminds me of Inigo Montoya, "I dont think that word means what you think it means."

    Can we combine the $100.00 promo code AND the $50.00 upgrade credit?
    Im on the fence (mainly cash flow) but that would get me in the store for sure.

    'For A Limited Time' but the word is until 12/31. If you are waiting for the Nexus and are worried the promo will end before it comes out call up a CSR let them know and they will note your account to help honor it in case that scenerio pans out.

    That battery life is very scary. I thought I read the extende battery has only about 20% or so more capacity? Hopefully your results won't be the norm.

    I completely overlooked that myself. We'll have a good idea on the battery soon enough I suppose.

    Like I said last page, the rep I called said that the $100 would stack on top of my $30 NE2 discount. So if she was to be believed, yes. :)

    Agreed. This Makes no sense at all. why at the 11th hour would they still be denying release while resellers and stores are getting all warm and fuzzy with potential customers trying to SELL THIER PRODUCT!!?? I just don't get it. WHy in the world is this situation soooooo fragile?

    This is it. Thurs or bust for me. I'll buy something used and wait 6 more months for something else. Get a big fat Note or sumthin'. Eff vzw.

    Might go the pre-order route if I can get it next day since I may not be able to get to the store till the afternoon and if they sell out and I have to wait days (eek...week) to get one ill jump.

    Curious if anyone knows of any discounts for someone that is not w/ VZW yet. My whole family is on a family plan w/ them and I am the only hold out still w/ AT&T and they have offered me a fantastic deal on the Skyrocket but I still want the Nexus and the only thing better then a $299 Nexus is a $149 Nexus. :)

    i am one of the ones who got the $100 promo noted on their account. but, as i've said before, i'm not sure that it will stick. if it does, i'll be pleasantly surprised. but, i tend to think you guys are right, and the VZW store people will probably tell me i'm SOL. i won't go down without a fight, though (but only after i have the GNex in my hands). :)
