    I wish Verizon would make this official already! If I call one more corporate store and they tell me that the release has been delayed again would definitely not be tomorrow, I am going to scream. I hope to be laughing in their faces tomorrow when I walk out with my new phone.

    I'm already planning a joke for my fellow Nexicans waiting in line tomorrow for VZW to open and sell us our damn phones:

    "Can you believe they released it in WHITE? The RAZR keeps getting better and better."

    If you hear this lame joke tomorrow at a Denver VZW store, it was [​IMG]

    Just stopped at an authorized reseller. They didn't have the stock yet but he is waiving my $30.00 upgrade fee and he said they would have them by tomorrow. After I left he called and said they just showed in his system and they were getting two tomorrow and he was putting my name on one. The Corp store can suck it because they have been unhelpful. Anyway yay!!!!!! So happy!:D

    I figured that might be a problem with ICS. I've started playing around with Groove IP and a few other apps just for that reason.

    Not sure if it is the case on the Nexus, but in my ICS ROM (under Phone > Settings) there is an option for Internet Call Settings. In those settings there are options for a SIP account. You may want to look into that.

    Han, last night around 11:30 central time the verizon site was updating and I'm not sure who pointed it out, but they were fixing the open/close times and Thursday was just completely missing. Haha. We were all like "oh, so theyre just removing Thursdays now?" but it was pretty crazy because you would refresh, and there would be one or two pages again with people freaking out about it. And then someone was on testman and refreshed, and at the bottom of the screen there was a galaxy nexus ad, he took a picture and posted it so its on here somewhere, but then refreshed again and it was gone. Pretty funny night

    I went in to the Southfield store and not only did they have one that I played around with for like 10 minutes (SO COOL CAN'T WAIT!!) when I asked anything about Thursday the salesman that I was talking to verbally said he doesn't know anything about it, but gave me a wink at the end...Take it for what it's worth.

    Just received word from a local NYC corp store (won't mention which one) that I will have a phone tomorrow to pick up and it will be activated and ready to go at open. Release is in fact tomorrow!

    I keep finding ways to keep myself busy for 20-30 minutes at a time and then I check back hoping for a press release. Otherwise I'm going to have a panic attack. lol

    Is it even remotely possible that they delayed launch because of issues with the VZW bloatware that nobody with half a brain would ever touch?? That's a nauseating thought.

    I'll have mine tomorrow, one way or another. ;)

    I can only assume that Verizon doesn't really care how well the GN sells and may actually prefer that it not sell well at the expense of the Razr and thus the lack of promo/information from Verizon. I wonder if their sales staff will still be pushing Razrs on unsuspecting customers after the GN launches. Anyone know if the Razr commercials are Verizon or Motorola sponsored?

    Yeah, Store in Holland told me no info and none in stock, but he did take my name and number so that's a start. All the other stores in the area just say "No info, but we do have a sweat new phone, have you heard of the Razr"? Click:mad:

    Potentially GREAT news for me! Tomorrow confirmed twice.

    Just called like 6 stores, RS, retailers and corporate...

    Radio Shack:
    Me: I'd like to check on the availability of the Galaxy Nexus.
    RS: We don't have any right now but it launches tomorrow right?
    Me: Uh, Yeah that's what I've heard.
    RS: We can call you when it's available.

    They call back 10 mins later... "Hey you're in luck, we just got one in shipment. Ill put your name on it and hold it for you tomorrow. See you in the morning"

    Me: I'd like to check on the availability of the Galaxy Nexus.
    Corp: It launches tomorrow. I just got mine for my work phone and I've been playing with it all day. (They continued to go on how they loved the phone)
    Me: Great can I set up an appointment tomorrow?
    Corp: Well I can't really set one up for you since it hasn't officially released. I'm not even sure If I'm allowed to tell you that or not *snicker* but we have plenty in stock. Come in tomorrow and you shouldn't have a problem.

    BOOYAH!! Two places (one holding it for me) that I know I can get the phone tomorrow! :)

    So we just had our Christmas lunch party at work and at the end they handed out gifts. I got an 8gb Ipod Nano.... Really now I have to try and sell an Ipod Nano to someone.

    If the Galaxy Nexus doesn't release tomorrow I am going to punch some random person... I just hope said person isn't bigger then I am or a crazy Jujitsu fighter that is going to pound my face
