    Troubling trend now, it's really amazing so many stores and customers keep being played for fools. Very close to not renewing my contract with Verizon now.

    The phone is not being released tomorrow. There has been no update to the equipment guide, their employees have not been notified, and there has not been a press release.

    I mean, how last minute do you think they are going to spring a major phone release on their employees and the paying public? Obviously tomorrow is not the day...

    Basically, I think they're running this check each day:

    if(sales_of(razr) < razr_target) {

    That's my only conclusion at this point. That, or they like pissing off their customers.

    If they screw this AGAIN, I'm done.

    Frakking done. I don't care if it comes out next week for $50. I'm done with Verizon.

    Frakking damn morons.

    Yeah, he posted that he had vinylfreak89's store in Maryland sending one to him via overnight shipping, he received a tracking number and everything. Unfortunately, I'm not sure if it's a corporate store or an authorized retailer.

    EDIT: Ninja'd, and I guess it is an authorized retailer.

    I can see a launch being called off 3 days ahead of time like last time for last minute software upgrades...but now we're 15 hours from when stores open tomorrow and they dont have a damn clue if its going to be released. Thats the absurd part.

    FWIW... just called two Radio Shacks in Manhattan... first played dumb, referred to the end of the year. Second confirmed they're in stock but not released to sell yet- however, did say to check tomorrow or Friday.

    /slight hope, longtime lurker

    I just don't get it. There are many people on here that are getting "confirmed" calls from their CSRs for tomorrow. But there are just as many people getting "confirmed" calls from their CSRs telling them it's been delayed or that tomorrow is definitely not happening. This is all nuts.

    You better call them back. You're going to be REALLY disappointed at 8am tomorrow. :rolleyes:

    Ok..here's my story.

    Verizon Corporate store: Dont know when releasing, dont know if in stock (could hear the hesitation in voice).

    Wireless Zone: Verizon released orders yesterday from warehouse in CT...2 units due in tomorrow (talked to manager and he has the serial numbers for the units already..he also took my order), 4 due in Friday. Authorized to sell tomorrow. Gave him my $100 deposit to hold a phone (one other person also firm order and 4 other people "maybes") and tomorrow around lunch I will be owner of a new Nexus (I'm going to stalk the Fedex guy at the store ;))

    Hi guys, new lurker reporting in. I want to thank everyone in this thread for being my support group in these troubled times ;) I hope we get what we've been waiting for soon.

    Here's what I have to report from various calls around my area (East Bay CA) :

    Corporate: Reps knew nothing every time I called, twice yesterday and twice today, different people answering the phone every time. No release date and didn't tell me if they had stock or not.

    Friend who works for VZW: Absolutely no idea.

    Reseller: They told me Thursday without hesitation both yesterday and today, but said they did not have stock yet. Keeping an eye on this one, I guess.

    Radio Shack: The guy who answered the phone put me on hold for a few minutes when I asked about tomorrow and then said he would call me back. Less than 10 minutes later, he called back and told me that tomorrow is definitely the day. He asked me why I wanted the phone. "Ice cream sandwich!" He laughed and verified that we were talking about the same phone. I asked him about 100 times if he was sure, and he said "that's why I had to return your call, had to go check with management because we have them in the back." Well, I know where I'm headed tomorrow morning.

    Although it's been fun riding this pre-release roller coaster, I hope the ride stops tomorrow! :D

    No dice at radio shack. They have them in stock but can't sell them yet...

    She did say tomorrow is still the date at least, last she heard.
