    Allow them to activate it, just to save the hassle, but keep a close eye on how they treat your baby and speak up if they're too rough. If you can't do this, just tell them you're in a hurry and you don't have time for activation and do it yourself.

    Bring at least $350, I'd say.

    Thanks! But I'd rather pay as much as it takes (within reason) to have it ASAP rather than wait for a lousy $100. Don't get me wrong, for those on a budget this is absolutely great to have this option. I'm not rich by any means (I think I have $412 in my bank account, and that's before I buy the upgrade), but after going through this crazy "launch" debacle for the past month, $100 seems like a small price to pay for immediate satisfaction. Especially considering how easy it is to spend $100 nowadays. Heck, that's a tank a gas and a couple packs of smokes for me...

    But again, if you're patient and don't want to spend $300+, then this is a GREAT option to have!!!

    often times they dont willingly give them, but the right csr in the right mood can get it done for you. dont give up hope, just keep calling back 20x if thats what it takes. or call *611 and press 0, then say cancel service when prompted, they will get it done

    Great way to finish my vacation in Orlando by not obsessing over this thread and phone for the past week. Have mine ordered and will be waiting for me to get home on Monday.

    Thanks Han! I guess all these people that are speaking so highly of you are right! I know we didn't really get to know each other during our time here, but I've really enjoyed reading what you have to say. I look forward to communication in future threads!

    Does anyone know how long it takes for to run through the whole transaction of buying this phone? I have a meeting at work at about 10am and work about 15 mins away from the Best Buy I plan on purchasing the phone from. I plan on being there the second it opens and purchase it. Do you think it takes more than 30 mins, does it depend if I get a rookie working there? Thoughts plz?

    Is there any reason why I shouldn't buy this at Best Buy? They open earlier than VZW in my area, but I've only ever purchased phones directly from a corporate store before.

    Here is my closing post. I'll make it short and sweet, ok maybe not so short. ;)

    I was a fairly active member on the Eris forum a while back, but hadn't been back to androidforums in a while. Then I started lurking on this thread a few weeks ago. Finally I had to speak out as I felt people were just getting too worked up about these dates and they kept slipping over and over. I wanted to remind people that nothing was official until it was official. I was glad to bring a bit of balance to this thread. To those of you that listened to me and understood where I was coming from; thanks. To those of you that didn't want to believe what I was saying; that's a good thing. It's always a good thing to have optimism and hope. Anyway, I'm glad to finally be proven wrong. I knew it would happen eventually, I'm just glad it was today. To me the Nexus on Verizon truly is the holy grail of phones. I've been due for an upgrade since last January and I refused to buy anything but a Nexus. I'm glad I waited.

    There's really just one thing left to say:

    TOMORROW IS NEXMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    Thanks everyone here who helped make this wait worth it.

    We all stuck it out together <3.

    Happy Nexus day everyone.

    Thanks! Want to come to Pittsburgh and wait in line with me? I'm not looking forward to sitting there by myself, but hopefully my excitement for the phone will make the time go quickly. I'm VERY curious if they'll be a lot of people there or not.

    Corporate Store opens at 9:00AM, shooting for 8:00AM just to be on the safe side. When I called earlier the lady told me about 10 people had called earlier today asking. I am however doubting 10 people show up more than 1 hour early to get the phone at least hoping /cross fingers.

    If all else fails ill go to work and order it there.
