    Good morning all! Woke up in the best mood, feeling 100% able to knock out both of my final exams today, going to hopefully grab this phone tomorrow, going to graduate from UK on Friday, and then I have a whole 2 weeks off before I start working.

    VERY excited about this!

    This is our week!

    Yeah, same thing for the Incredible and Incredible 2... Looks like around 10am if the decision has been made.

    Good morning Sexy Nexians! This should be the next to last morning we wake up together in here. I am excited for the phone but get kinda sad thinking about not seeing everyone when I wake up. Don't forget to come to the watering hole once in a while.

    Okay, what's the latest scoop? I try to read as many posts as I can when I log in, I really do. You know how long it takes to get through 12 hours of posts? :)

    Is it Thursday, or the Nex-day, or the Nex-day, or the Nex-day, or the Nex-day?

    This phone is not rootable by exploit, it is rootable by design. There is no reason to worry about updates blocking root.

    Morning BB. Hopefully we are only a few hours away from making everything official. Last time I was at or above this excitement level was when my wife woke me up at 5:30am on January 16th of this year. To tell me she was in Labor. It has a lot of the same feelings, chances are something good is gonna happen today, but will be very stressful and worrisome until it finally happens. (Of course this doesn't even compare, even if it was our 3rd, but there hasn't been anything more exciting since then, so...)

    That's a good thing you're doing. BTW, while most pheresis setups draw blood from one arm and inject back into the other, you might be able to choose a machine that (more slowly) does both through the same needle... thereby preserving your Nexus arm for later. :cool:

    You worry too much! :D

    It'll all be okay. I predict Friday at the VERY latest, but everything points to Thursday. As the one and only George Michael said (and later, Fred Durst) "Ya gotta have faith"! #rockon

    There are 2 radio shacks and a corp store downtown (have talked to all of them). The corp store opens at 8 am. They are supposed to call me when they "know" and I haven't received a call yet. You should be able to snag one there though I would imagine.

    Alright, Stratosphere and Breakout were also around 10am announcments, obviously this phone hasn't followed any of the regular channels, so take all the times of the other phones with a grain of salt (have we exhausted the world's supply yet?) but this place might be very happy come 2-3 hours from now.

    What are the chances that Costco are the only guys selling this tomorrow, either officially or by accident? Did some researching and its only a 5% surcharge for non members to shop there. which would be about $305. Definitley worth it obviously.

    Haha, I just saw the leaked internal document for the 15th... Lists the LTE expansion here in Savannah... I wonder if that leaked from my store?

    Might want to check your math on that. It'll be around $313ish.

    no way of knowing but my guess is it comes with a bundle like this included and a bundle with a car dock, desk dock, or something like that which need a mail in rebate like the RAZR did

    (check my posts, I posted what the RAZR came with yesterday)

    Good morning everyone -- can't believe that this phone will (SHOULD) be out tomorrow.

    Found out that I have meetings from 10:30 - 1PM and 3-4PM today so I won't be as active as I normally am. But hopefully when I come back from all my meetings I can read the good news about the phone being officially announced by Verizon for a 15th release. Then I can go to the store that opens at 8AM tomorrow and get it.

    My TPU case is sitting next to me taunting me.
