    So is the concensus that everyone is still going to root immediately? I'm considering waiting it out until more devs get their hands on the device. Thoughts?

    I said it was an upgrade for 3G to 4G customers, but she said it was the midwest only. I'll try again with what you said. Thanks!

    This works for me every single time: Call *611, say cancel my account, you will get a CSR specialized in preventing account cancellation. Tell CSR your situation and why you are considering cancelling your account. If it can be done, it will be given to you.

    Well, I'll have to tell that to Jodi at Verizon. I just pre-ordered one from her. It ships tomorrow, but won't arrive until Monday unless I pay one-day shipping...

    Got mine sitting at the store right now.

    Don't worry little buddy, Daddy will see you in the morning.

    Just a wake up and done. I am glad I joined the conversation with you guys. Really enjoying this group. It will make the transition from the DX group far less painless. (some are coming over, I know)
    Catch Y'all in another thread tomorrow.
    (probably the Root section)
    Good night

    I always knew my daughter was good luck. Changed my avatar this morning from the TB pic to hers. YOU GO GIRL...now fetch daddy his NEXUS. ;)

    What a stinking relief! Now to see if I can finagle a half-day tomorrow.

    WOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!

    I'll be picking mine up right before I drive to the airport!! Gonna play with it the whole flight :D

    I honestly didn't expect them to make an announcement until tomorrow. Verizon, it might be because I'm just a sucker, but all is forgiven :):)

    Think I'm going to do online order @ 1am with overnight shipping. I have to work all day tomorrow and I'm kinda weird about people opening and handling my stuff, especially my brand new nexus :)

    I think I'll unlock and root immediately, but I won't be loading any ROMS for a while. ICS looks great.

    I just want to be able to take off the search bar at the top and add a search button in among the software buttons on the bottom.

    Also, there is a hack someone released that makes the folders on your homescreen square instead of round. I think I'll do that tomorrow, too.

    Isn't this exciting!??!!

    The biggest problem with this is that when I talked to a rep, he said it was an Iconic Device which means you have to pay now for it. There is no putting it on your wireless account. That could be a problem for some people.

    Also when asking him about the $100 rebate, it is only by phone, and it is a $100 card that is mailed to you in like 4-6 weeks. I am thinking I am just going to go into the store tomorrow morning and get it and not worry with the online or telesales crap. Besides if you order it online or on telesales you will probably get it Monday because there is so much holiday shipping traffic right now.... I want it in my hands ASAP!!!!

    Cheers to all who have waited, endured, and perservered!!!!!!

    Here is the full PR on Droid Life. Online at 1am. In stores tomorrow morning. Stores open as scheduled. I see no reason to go online (not for me anyhow).
    Official: Galaxy Nexus on Verizon Launches Tomorrow for $299 – Droid Life
    Read the PR, its got everything you need to know.

    Probably Tenchu'd by now, oh well.

    This thread is probably speeding right along right now, but I'm just dropping in real quickly before I have an orchestra concert to go to:

    IT'S FINALLY OFFICIAL!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE MY OWN EYES!

    Will post my big post tomorrow morning (before I go to school, because I won't be able to post while I'm at school once the thread closes; assuming it's closing once we pick our Nexi up!)

    It's too bad Dawnierae is out in the middle of the ocean somewhere.

    I sent her a PM with the news, though.
