    Welp, just got confirmation that my phone will be tucked away, waiting for me to pick it up Friday (unfortunately I work both my jobs Thursday and won't be out until after stores close. Oh well, what's one more day.) If you'll excuse me, I have an ad to design by EOD. Hopefully something good happens between now and then.

    Woot. Confirmed I can get a $100 credit for the 3g-4g upgrade. I know they reference "trade-in" so I wonder if they take my OG Droid. Which is fine since I was going to sell it anyway.

    My earlier question got missed, figure I'll ask during daylight:

    Does anyone know how soon after Amazon Wireless gets the phones? I think they were launch partners for the Razr, which they sold for $111.11 on launch day (and $0.01 on Black Friday)... it's now $169 (compared to $299 on Verizon) so I'm wondering if they'll have the GN for $199?

    Kinda hoping that's the case...

    I would have jumped on a SGS2 on Verizon and not waited for the Gnex if I knew the boot loader wasn't encrypted.

    I think the lack of info and even the uncertain launch is due to whatever last minute issue held it up last week. By comparison, this phone was probably approved for launch the closest to the actual launch date of any phone Verizon has ever had. They will advertise it, just not right away, very similar to the Incredible.

    I should probably look at "un-rooting" my phone tonight before I have to possibly trade it in tomorrow... just in case. :)

    You say they are morons, but you realize the Nexus S was on Sprint who didn't get the OG Droid IIRC...

    Hey guys can I do an alternate upgrade at a store like radio Shack? My wife's line has the 50 $ loyalty credit. I want to use that on my line but I thought I read you can only do that at a corporate store.

    Another long time lurker of this thread posting for the first time. With the (hopefully) imminent release of this phone, I've kicked my search into high gear for any information. I'm yet another Day 1 OG Droid buyer here and it's hanging on for dear life waiting for a replacement. I haven't followed every reply, but I see most of the people whose stores have "confirmed" tomorrow are more out to the west or south, while little information is available for my area (New York State, outside of the city). Today I called nearly every place I know of nearby which carries Verizon phones, and here's the result. Note that I'm unaware if the two Verizon stores I called are corporate or resellers.

    Verizon Store 1
    I asked if they were taking names for the Nexus, was told no. I followed up questioning the number of phones that would be available when it DID launch, and was told that they didn't know as they haven't received any yet.

    Verizon Store 2
    I asked if they were taking names for the Nexus, was immediately told that they had no information regarding the phone. I also asked them about the amount of phones that would be available and was told again that they had no information. it sounded like they had been asked about it alot and were just using a generic response for any questions about the Nexus.

    Best Buy
    I called and the phone rang for 15 minutes before I gave up. I had called earlier in the week and it took over 20 minutes for someone to pick up, so I wasn't surprised

    Costco
    This is where I would like to purchase the phone most, but they also told me they weren't taking names and informed me that they couldn't tell me anything about their stock until the phone was released.

    Radio Shack
    Until today I hadn't considered Radio Shack for anything other than batteries, but with others talking of good experiences with them I decided to give it a try. The person who I spoke to knew of the phone and, after asking their manager, they confirmed that they were taking names for the Nexus! After she confirmed I was looking for the Verizon model(She told me some people were asking about the GSM version) she told me that they had ONE in the back and it now had my name and number on it, as well as a promise to call me as soon as they hear anything official. I never got her to say the 15th, but she did confirm that the 9th was a previous release date that was delayed. All in all I was so pleased that even if Costco has it tomorrow I'll still pick it up at Radio Shack(assuming it's released at both stores tomorrow) as they were the only place to tell me anything other than a company line and went out on a limb to reserve one for me without any face-to-face meeting or deposit made.

    Please be kind to others and remember to call the 2nd place to release the hold as soon as you get from the 1st place!

    For everyone asking about upgrading at retailers and not from vzw online or a corporate store, you will lose your loyalty/NE2 discount. They are only given at vzw

    Wow. This kinda bummed me out. I just called Costco and they are usually really nice. I asked about tomorrow and the guy was unusually pissy. Said "absolutely NOT" being released tomorrow :(

    Oh well, I'm hoping he is saying that just to get everyone off the phone quickly.
