    Where? I can't find it on the site. Do you know the price off-hand or have a link?

    Whelp. I'm currently on a jury. We resume deliberations tomorrow morning at 9am. There's a Verizon corporate store a few blocks away which opens at 11. They claim to have "about 20" Nexuses in stock. I'm ready to run in tomorrow with my $30 loyalty discount + $50 LivingSocial deal and walk out with my new favorite thing. Please wish me luck with there being anything left to buy by the time I get out of the courthouse!

    P.S. The email VZ employees got this afternoon effected a night-and-day change in their demeanor. They were bubbly talking to me about the Nexus, and rolled their eyes and commiserated when I asked about the past week's "gag order." The manager even handed me her live Nexus to play with (spoiler: it's gorgeous with a minor caveat or two :)). The horrible tension is gone. Feels good, man.

    What are the disadvantages of getting the LetsTalk deal vs getting it from a corporate store? I've been debating springing for that deal, but I'm sure stuff like customer service and warranty are nonexistent? Anyone have some solid info on this?

    I gotta say, I am kinda shocked at how much VZW is burying this phone. I didn't think they'd put much behind it since it's not a DROID but this is kind of amazing. A late-in-the-day press release the day before a launch? Wow.

    Hopefully they do it like other launches and have it go live on the site earlier than 1 AM. That way I can get SOME sleep. :)

    If I buy from LetsTalk, do I have to keep the phone on the line that upgraded? Many of these third party people require that you not change phones (IIRC), and I am using another line's upgrade. So...can I still use LetsTalk?

    OT Insurance Claim

    I bought my sons Droid 2 from Wirefly.com and bought insurance for his phone through them honored by mobiledeviceprotection.com. He dropped it a couple of days ago cracking the screen. I filed a claim today. Good new/bad news. Good news is ZERO deductible unlike Verizon Wireless $100 deductible BUT they don't send you a replacement and you send in your phone. They REPAIR your phone and send it back to you. Meaning that you will be without a phone the whole time it gets repaired. :( Well, good thing I have an operational Dinc that he can use while his Droid 2 is repaired.

    You'll get an email when they want to sell you a Xyboard.

    Just want to say a quick thank you to all of you for making this one hell of a ride. From the wonderful mods to the silly trolls and everyone in between it has been an absolute honor and a pleasure to have been a part of this historic thread. A special thanks to Steven who started it all. We finally made it and the end is here, or better yet, the beginning. Good luck to all tomorrow and I am more than certain I will be seeing you soon. :)

    What are you guys talking about that a third-party retailer locks you in for the length of the contract?

    This is getting really hard to keep up with with everyone posting to one thread.

    Anyway, the corporate store has that "I have it right now" to it. Also, a loyalty discount for the next 2 years will be given to you. And if you have that $100 discount, then that will be applied. I'm looking @ $150 charge to my account (+tax) for going to a verizon store.

    Hey all!

    Just wanted to write and say I am officially off the roller coaster!!! I picked up my Nexus tonight at a reseller. Just goes to show you that if you make friends with those people they will hook you up and I couldn't have been happier to give them the business then the snide VZW employees by me.

    The phone is awesome. Love the size and weight, even with the extended battery on. The only gripe I have so far is the TPU case isn't allowing for me to hit the volume rocker down. I am still trying to figure it out so we will see.

    So fear not people, tomorrow is the day. Good luck to you all!!!

    :):):):)

    Wow, this is great to know, thanks! I might end up being in this same situation, hope the manager at my store is a little more lenient! Definitely planning on buying the extended battery, saving $25 will be great!

    You generally don't get early upgrades like you do with Verizon. Have to go the distance.

    Agree that letstalk.com are totally legit. Spoke to them, and they were very helpful, but......
    - they have a limited range of account management options
    - they can't pull an update forward, where VZW CSRs have the option to apply the update if its within 30 days of its due date
    - they can't transfer a ripe upgrade from another line to the line you want to use it on, where VZW will.

    They have great pricing on the GNex IF you have a ripe upgrade and don't need anything other than a plain vanilla purchase.

    Hope this helps someone save a few bones.

    yup, i just called them three separate times. Because it's a smartphone the line you use to upgrade would have to have the data package and you cannot change the phone to another line for 6 months. So letstalk, as far i know, if not an option for us poor folks :(

    I am not due for an upgrade until next December. I have called several times and they will not move it since I have only been back for 8 months.

    Any ideas besides full price? :(
