    It's a csr. No, I wouldn't believe them. We've said numerous times they don't know anymore than us. Until Verizon says it, its not official

    FWIW: Called VZW Corp store (NYC) and she confirmed tomorrow is the day. Told me to be there as soon as I can get there. "Were good to go for liftoff!"

    So I called my new Verizon rep friend, and he says he's not 100% sure, because they haven't received official word yet.

    I think that he's lying because he doesn't want to get into trouble.

    But then again, who the frak knows.

    Man if this comes out tomorrow I want to be standing at the Verizon in Downtown Denver at 8:30 waiting for it to open at 9 but I have so much work to do all day if I do buy it I am going to slack and not get the shit done haha

    ohh man the smarter side of me says wait till Friday but the kid in me says get it tomorrow. I returned my Rezound last night and am rocking an OG Incredible (I miss 4G so much)

    So while I'm not 100% sold on tomorrow, this is nice. Last week around this time (the day before supposed launch) we had a ton of bad news already that it was going to be delayed. This week its still either launch or cluelessness. Everyone preaching no release this week consider that for a moment.

    Just spoke with my wife and as of right now she is still bringing home a GN tonight and will activate it tomorrow morning when she gets to work. Her store has not received any word regarding this phone's release date being pushed back again.

    I can't help but notice that it seems most of the corporate stores are "unwilling" to divulge information, while the retail stores are gladly expressing any information they have...

    Bottom line...the corporate stores are on a tighter leash.

    If this goes on sale tomorrow, would online sales be available at midnight tonight???

    i've called several corporate stores in the Phx area, and i get the same response: "We haven't received any word of an official release date, so we can't tell you when it will be available."

    however, on my last call, i spoke to someone who was very nice, and who is in charge of merchandising in this particular store. she lamented how VZW has buggered this release, and how VZW has been clamping down on the info that they can give out. she then went on to say:

    given the PR statement from VZW to Android & Me, this tells me that VZW is keeping us and its corporate stores equally in the dark. it could be tomorrow, it could be Friday, it could be......who knows?! i still plan on being at the doors at 9:00 tomorrow. luckily, if i get turned away, i'm still only 10 mins from work...

    Excellent. I have a squaretrade for my tv, but never have made a claim. I noticed Steven used it for his notebook, sounded like it went well. It's nice to hear from others who have used them before.

    Tx!

    we are certainly in a better situation right now then last week....but until EVERYONE can call a store and get the same response....I will remain skeptical.

    I have figured out when the Galaxy Nexus will be available.

    Remember when people were claiming it was going to come out on 12/12 at 12:12, they were on the right track but Verizon is going after something different then day of the week and month of the year since they've done that before. The clue is that the only real press release they done since the announcement that has really mentioned the Galaxy Nexus has been the one talking about tomorrow, 12/15, being the LTE anniversary. So the the Galaxy Nexus should release on 12/15 at 12:15.
    .... or not, I may just be grasping at straws but the good news is that 4G is officially launching in my area on 12/15 so I have that to look forward to once I can replace my OG Droid.

    I decided last week my business for my Nexus is going to Radio Shack because the manager there has been honest with me from day 1 and even put my name on the one in stock and let me unbox it last week. All the VZW stores in the area have lied through their teeth claiming they don't know, don't have stock, yada yada...even one being just plain rude saying "I have no information for you".

    I decided to give my local VZW one last chance to come clean and earn the opportunity to get the sale for my wife's upgrade. They still claim they know nothing. They're done. If this phone comes out tomorrow, they will never get a dime of my money again.

    Not even going to repeat the information I just got without hide tags. Its no more reliable than any other information however.

    From friend via Regional Manager "Not looking good, starting to look like January, but its still possible"

    Bleh.
