    That looks awesome, thanks for taking them! It looks to me like there are holes cut out for the volume rocker, which there aren't on the Diztronic. I know from personal experience that when TPU cases cover those things, they depress rather easily (I've accidentally blasted the volume on my Galaxy Tab 10 because of this reason) I will probably pick one up.

    Thanks again!

    What if...

    Verizon announces tonight that they are delaying the phone release due to a last minute unforeseen problem?

    I'm not going to order online, but I want to know who else besides me is going to stay up tonight so we can congratulate the first person to post their order verification?

    plan of action....

    1. call vzw telesales tonight to order and attempt to get them to honor both my $50 loyalty discount and the $100 promo that was noted to my account.

    if option 1 fails...

    2. order from letstalk for $175

    3. get either one friday. happy me, happy wife to no longer hear me complain about vzw. profit

    I made my first post back on page 580, but was following long before. I've enjoyed following the thread everyday. I couldn't begin to count the number of posts that have made me laugh out loud. Things may have gotten a little out of hand, at times, but in the end cooler heads prevailed.

    Some will stick around in other threads. Some will pop in and out with questions. Others...we won't see until the next epic phone.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed everyone's participation in this thread. I, for one, hope to be around the Galaxy Nexus threads.

    So let's all go out and get our Nexi tomorrow. Spend a little time getting to know it. After that...spend some time with friends and family and celebrate the season.

    Cheers, everyone :)

    Depends if you're upgrading or buying outright. If upgrading the price is the same. If paying retail, the prices ive seen are about $150 more than verizon.

    There is no need to be sad about closing this thread! I'll still see you all right here on this forum, discussing about purchase experience, apps, ROMs, and all other crazy stuff! :D

    Funny, earlier my rep texted me..."TOMORROW!!!!!" and I was all excited to come on here and let everyone know...but the mobile app wasn't working. So I checked my Pulse feeds and low and behold, I wan't going to be telling anyone anything they didn't already know. Finally. Finally I can get some real work done and stop reading this thread with anticipation.

    The bad news for me is because I'm on a corporate account I won't get the phone until Friday...but I want everyone to enjoy it! Really sit back and enjoy it.

    Also, it appears the delays were actually a bug...as everyone will be getting a new software build after activation (hopefully helping the battery!!!)

    Finally (and sorry this is probably going to be long), but since I'll be hard at work tomorrow at 11AM EST when this thread closes and the rest of you are playing with your awesomeness called NEXUS, I would like to go ahead and say my final piece on this epic thread now.

    (I normally don't single people out because when you leave someone out it's hurtful...but this thread had some key people in my eyes that need singled out)

    Hans, you seem like a really good guy and you definitely are one of the main reasons that I came back day after day. It was touch and go there for a little, but you showed true character and rejoined your online family when we needed you. Thank you.

    BB, you and your fun loving personality (and really cool avatars) are another reason I've been back every day (multiple times a day). Thank you.

    Chief, I always looked forward to your wisdom and maturity that you brought to the thread. Thank you.

    Scott, I know everyone makes fun of your age...but I love the passion you show. Keep that in life and you'll go far!!! Thank you.

    Steven, never have I ever seen a guy who's been as caring (and lenient) as you have. When we were down, you brought us back up...when we were up you were right there to
    enjoy it with us. Truly a class act! Thank you, thank you, thank you. (I only wish I could have contributed to the purchase of your phone...you truly deserve it).

    Early & OTD - You are both GREAT! I love both the professionalism and knowledge mixed with the "being one of the gang"...awesome. Thank you both.

    All Mods - All the mods I couldn't/didn't mention, you had your work cut out for you...but you did it. You are the GLUE of this thread and forum...a place I will always be back to (although I expect I'll never have another experience quite like this one). Thank you!!!

    Everyone I didn't mention - I know there's a lot of other people RazorSharp (with daily updates about the 10 cent apps), some of the supporting cast like the Source, Princess Leia, Hanetta...really EVERYONE that came out of lurking and joined in the fun...you made this thread what it was. PRICELESS (and something I will ALWAYS remember). Thank you all.

    I don't mean to sound all mopey or depressive (especially when we're about to have the phone of a lifetime in our hands on America's Best Network), but things like this thread are really a rare find. I really can sit back and appreciate what I was a part of...something bigger than me...bigger than a phone. Something truly epic...a microcosm of society coming together in harmony to appreciate each other and something cool!

    Now it's time for me to re-join my family and re-focus my priorities...but it was a great ride. Never forget and thanks again to everyone that made it possible!

    - Mr. Link
