    I just had to:

    Well, I hope to get my #GalaxyNexus this Friday! Then I can say Good bye to @Motorola #DroidX = Good. Encrypted bootloaders = Bad :D

    Maybe it's just my personal preference, but I hate buying Verizon accessories. They are overpriced and never worth it. eBay and other websites have bundles that you can buy for like $9.99 that have 12 different things in them (exaggerating a bit, more like 5 items) and they usually end up being better quality than the stuff that's $30/per. Plus, you get free shipping most of the time too. Screw getting it at VZW.

    Oh, and never used the gloves. Don't know if i really would ever, but for $15 you can't really go wrong.

    I thought i would order it tonight just to be to safe but I kind of want to check out the deals on accessories if they really are 50% off.

    If for some insane reason I can't get the nexus at any store tomorrow, I will definitely order it online before 430pm so as to get it the next day.

    Ok guys, tomorrow I have a block period of Band at 8 AM, a block period of Spanish (boring!) after that, and then a short free period...

    Who says I ask my parents to order my Nexus and bring it to school tomorrow?! :D

    Well, that's not happening unfortunately, but I will have it by 5 PM, I know that much.

    Anyways, I'm going to get some rest. THANK YOU EVERYONE! You have made this an amazing journey and I simply cannot believe we are FINALLY here!

    Good night everyone :) Enjoy your Nexi, I know I will! :D

    Hey guys sorry if this has already been posted but before I place my order. I live in NY and it's 1:22 EST. If I choose the $12.99 super duper deluxe awesome special bow on top shipping, when should I be expecting it? If today is thursday would it be friday?

    *edit* or rather, is it worth spending the extra few bucks for the upgraded shipping or is it not going to really make a difference since it's 1:30 in the morning on a thursday?

    How did you guys get that FedEx priority shipping? All I saw was "Free Overnight Shipping". Are they the same?

    Lol... I'm not taking any chances this time around. Too many things have gone sour with this release that I don't need to add "We just ran out, sorry" to the list!! Lol

    Why on Verizon does it say that the Nexus doesn't have a removable battery?

    So I just ordered my GN on Verizon's site and upon completing the transaction, I received this message:

    Your order is subject to final credit approval. We will contact you if we need additional information to complete your order. Pre-orders will ship when the item becomes available. We reserve the right to limit quantities. You cannot change your shipping address after you submit the order.

    The GN is available right now is it not? Meaning it WILL be shipped tomorrow?

    Also, I was pleasantly surprised to see free overnight shipping.

    Oh, then I'd still get an extended battery. I don't see them going much lower than 25 bucks even online ( but I usually don't buy replacement batteries so I could be wrong)

    I would have totally done this. With my luck it'd be back ordered by then.

    Have you checked that recently?

    If so that sucks because not only are we 3 hours behind but also the store opens later.... Annoying!

    Yea I kind of feel like I'm taking a slight risk by doing this (even if I'm not), so hopefully that won't happen to me

    I only wanted the extended battery I have a 50% accessory thing on my account so it would have only been $20-25 ... The gloves will be nice if they work , I'm out late a lot in Chicago and Denver and the winters can get kinda cold being outside at 2am I wear gloves occasionally but it's a pain when you have to remove them just to use your phone

    Not true. You are so swift, that there was only one time I was around when things were going south, and by the time I had a chance to look back, *Poof* things were cleaned up and back on track. That is MAJOR dedication, my friend! My hat is off to You:cool: BTW, I am a huge Cowboy Bebop. That, Trigun, and Berzerk, are probably my top three favorite anime series of all time!

    No, no, no, I was saying goodnight to Woods!:p
    Although I should go to bed soon...I'm just too excited about tomorrow...
    And for our HM. Where are we going btw? Bahmas, Hawaii, Mediterranian. You name it.;) Second thought, Zedster will try to follow us...We had better decide in secret:D

    My store normally opens at 10am (and was showing that as late as Monday), but it is showing 9am tomorrow. :D
