    Geez...I don't know what to say other than THANKS for your patience with all my questions! I've learned so much from every one of you, and will still need your help once I get this beauty in my hands. So I'll be looking for all of you!!! This forum was the first thing I checked in the morning and the last thing I checked at night! It's going to be so strange not having it here any more...but we will meet again!!!

    After this post from sox08, the place caught on fire and minimum attention was given to sox08 who initially announced VZW finally officially releasing the Gnex. About 13 "Thanks" and then the firestorm. I think it should be clearly noted who broke the big news first. Thanks again sox08.

    No problem!!! I totally understand. I am single mom with two teenagers each with a separate data plan and both have a nicer news phones than I. IT'S MY TURN!!! I have thoroughly mastered delayed gratification to an art form. If you know what I mean.

    How legit is LetsTalk? And when you upgrade do they change anything with your plan?

    Any New Yorkers (NYC) going to see/know if the 24 hour best buy in Union Square is selling them at midnight?

    I can't help you with how long it'll take. It's different every time for me. I'd suggest getting there a couple hours (yes, hours..) early if you really want to ensure you're one of the first. I don't know exactly what to expect, so I'm going to do a driveby at around 6AM and see how it's looking. If anyone's there, I'm gonna stay... if not, I'll go home and wait impatiently some more. Maybe I'll even do a driveby at like 3AM as well, just incase other Pittsburghers are crazy fanatics and want to steal my phone!

    Once you're actually being waited on, though... I'd say it takes between 15-20 minutes. Some can be quicker than others, but if you're not going to activate it yourself, you have to wait for them.

  10. I haven't been an overly active poster in this forum, but I have lived in it since it opened. I am honored to be just a small part of this epic adventure. I really have enjoyed most of the wait and in a weird way I hate to see it end. My wife and daughter are excited that I will finally be a part of the family again. I want to thank you all for the fun and I hope that you all enjoy the power of the Nexus.

    Cross-posting from another thread:
    I'd really like to try these steps out, as I want to take every precaution to calibrate my battery for the longest possible life. However, correct me if I'm wrong, but won't the phone turn on and try to boot up when plugged in? At least, this was the case with my OG Droid. Forgive me if this is a stupid question.

    I called telesales to add a line instead of paying full retail, they seemed all hyped up about the Nexus as well. Man.. I cannot wait to get my new toy tomorrow. Now I just have to wait for the Transformer Prime to show its pretty little head.

    Unless you are absolutely off your 2-year. Best Buy cannot do early upgrades.

    This has certainly been an interesting adventure. I learned a bunch and wanted to thank you all.

    Some take away points:

    - I will not need to ride a roller coaster for years
    - I already exceeded my lifetime intake of sodium
    - Bigfoot is coordinated enough to operate a smartphone while riding his unicorn
    - Arrows apparently do a number on the knees

    BTW, thanks for all the posts about the discount codes. I was not able to get the $100 off but a very nice CSR was able to give me $9.99 off each of my 3 lines for 12 months.

    I am sure I will be doing this again in 2 years or sooner. I will see some of you then?

    Was told you can just go to the Verizon store. All they need is to see that you have a 4G capable phone and your charge to your account will be reduced -$50 for loyalty and -$100 for upgrading to a 4g phone. It should act a credit, not a rebate.

    Thank you all for keeping me company while we all waited to get our hands on this phone. We laughed together and cried together. We fought and hugged, cheered and booed. It was great, a real cyber-family. Enjoy your nexus Stephen58, you've been a fabulous mod. See you all in the watering hole!
    Now, The Big Bang Theory is on and I hate to miss that show! Those guys are truly crazy.

    Thanks to the Mods, the source, members - senior and newbies alike for all the contributions. Countless hours have been spent researching, scouring the internet, tweeting, texting looking for tidbits of info. We've been through good times and bad. But the laughter, the videos and pics kept us through it all. Got to know lots of great guys and gals here. What an awesome ride it's been!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone on the other side...rather the "regular" Nexus general forums.
