    people, why is everyone calling their local stores? its obvious they cant/wont tell you anything, and if they do, people are still finding a way to doubt/discredit it anyway, so why bother? just follow here and twitter and you will know when its good to go

    I was wondering the same thing. Also is there any difference in buying one at a Premium retailer than a Corp. store. If someone does purchase 1 from a Premium retailer and happens to get a lemon, do you have to specifically deal with the retailer?:thinking:

    Answers are greatly appreciated.

    I for one will be going to the Premium retailer that just called and told me to show up tomorrow at 9 for my new phone!

    So I am in a dilemma. My original droid is broke. I have no phone, so I'm praying on the Nexus tomorrow.

    If I would happen to pick up the white razr, can't I return it within 14 days if "I don't like it"? aka to get a Nexus? Has anyone done this? Also would I be charged extra at all for doing this? Thanks

    Got a phone call from my rep at the Garden State Plaza that it will be available tomorrow! Take it with a grain of salt. It will hopefully be in my hands at 8 a.m. tomorrow

    Just called a corp VZW store in MoCo Maryland (outside DC)

    Me: I'm interested in getting a GNex.
    Rep: We don't have any info on a release date for that
    Me: Do you have any in stock, so I can get one if it is released?
    Rep: I don't know if we have any in stock.

    WTF already.

    I just de-activated my rent-a-RAZR and am going to return it in a few. Local Costco has my name on their list for tomorrow morning. If it doesn't happen, I have re-activated my old Droid X for now to hold me over until it does.

    Just called the Springfield, MO corporate stores. One said he had no info and rumors are rumors. The other store said she had heard tomorrow was the day but they hadn't heard anything official and there wasn't anything in the equipment guide yet. Oh well. She took my name and number and said she would call as soon as she knew something more. I'll you guys know if she calls.

    I hope your right :) However its fairly convincing when the regional manager tells you that no store in your region has the phone and no store in your region is scheduled to get the phone tomorrow.

    You would think if they had a gag order you wouldn't tell a very specific lie like that. Especially from someone I've dealt with for years.

    Edit: That information was also volunteered, not asked for. I didn't even mention stock.

    I just called my corporate store in NW Indiana, the guy I spoke to said, "We're expecting Thursday if it doesn't get pushed back."
