    What do I plan to do right away with my Nexus? One thing I'm very excited about doesn't actually involve the phone per se. Getting some blank NFC tags from a supplier and cooking up some personal NFC tags for my daily use. I know some of us discussed this a while back, but THAT is one of the first things I plan on doing. In fact, price shopping for them right now.

    Ok, first thing WITH the device? Sheesh, I'll probably spend a good 10-15 mins cleaning off my ......drool.

    Just got a call from my Verizon girl!!! (Actually it was an hour and a half ago, but the boards were crashing on me)


    No way for me to get there until 5pm tomorrow, so she is just gonna ring it up and hold it for me!!!

    I've been riding this thread since page 300 or so (for those of us with 50 posts per page:rolleyes:)

    Thanks to everyone for getting me through these past few months!

    And you can log into your account on the website and it says your upgrade is available 12/14? Did you have to have the CSR get a supervisor to do it?

    im going to attempt to order tonight by calling... i think it may be easier to get a csr to apply that $100 credit that was noted to my acct on the phone than it will be in the store

    I've got mine ordered and might have it tomorrow, if not it will be here Friday morning. I live in such a small area in NY state that none of the stores around here are going to have it until Friday, possibly Monday and the local Radio Shacks don't honor early upgrades. I actually got it from the phone number that was posted earlier, I called the minute it was posted.

    Well, as a trial run I tried to upgrade my original droid to a razr right now, but it's forcing me to choose a new data plan, I have the unlimited data plan from years ago and I have been careful not to change it. Everything I read says I should be able to keep my data plan when upgrading to another smartphone, so what gives? Don't see a way to get past the plan select screen and order an upgrade without selecting a data plan.

    Yes on both accounts. It says I'm Upgrade Eligible right now, and I was put on hold so her supervisor could do it.

    If I go to radioshack to get this phone, can they charge the $299+tax to my monthly bill? Im pretty sure Verizon corporate will; but my radioshack opens an hour before Verizon.....

    You can usually upgrade a month before with a $20 fee

    Will people wait for the OTA update (if not already on the phone) before unlocking the bootloader/root? If not, will we have to find the update on XDA or some other site? I plan on unlocking/rooting ASAP!
