    Is there any way to get it cheaper than $299 if buying it in store at opening?

    Thanks for accepting a non-tech savvy person into the Club. I've had a great time.

    It was actually never in stock so maybe they just haven't updated their inventory count yet.

    You could try getting the $100 promotional discount for Midwest customers upgrading from a 3g phone to a 4g phone.

    Option 2 is investing in a ski mask

    Same for me! Got a OG Droid on launch day and then a Droid X its launch day. So I've had a Droid branded phone for the past two years.

    Why is it that everything you say sounds so naughty:p
    Seriously, though. I'm just as excited (I'm also a Galaxy Nexus virgin) :D
    Actually, I had to edit down parts of people's posts so that I could be within posting requirements....:eek:

    If you like darker stuff, Bebop is like the second half of Trigun. There are a few light hearted eps, but mostly the story is somewhat heavier, and in some ways more mature than Trigun. Berserk (sorry misspelled before) is truly nuts. It is very hellishly violent and set in a sort of midieval fantasy world where there are demons. Its not hentai, but it is quite desturbing at parts. However it is phenominally well put together, with highly complex morally grey characters. I have really seen nothing else like it.
    I refuse to believe that! There is no world outside this thread. LOLOLOLOL! (At least that is kind of how my GF has been thinking of my actions over the last monthish) :rolleyes: I hope you continue to have good playing opportunties, and good luck in your studies!
    I still remember hearing about the G1 for the first time back when I was living in CA, I was driving home one day listening to All Things Considered on NPR and thinking, wow, Google made a phone. That's kind of crazy. They are ambitious. I wonder if they will ever make a phone as functional and sleek as an iphone (first gen of course, lol) I have come along way since then, and so has Google, ha ha!:D
    For Reals!! No more DROOOOIIIDDD!!!
    Sweet!! I love 360 views!

    So the $249.99 price I see online at Verizon won't be honored if I waddle into the store?

    Welp, off to bed. This probably going to be my last post because I have a looooong road trip back home tomorrow. If all goes well I shall have an e-mail hit my inbox tomorrow notifying me that my Nexus order is approved, and it shall be mine Friday! I've been burnt before though... To those of you lucky enough to get yours tomorrow, enjoy!

    Goodbye dear thread!

    Does anyone know how to apply an upgrade to a different line when ordering online? I can't seem to figure out how to do it yet based on someone else's email confirmation, it seems to be possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    I was pretty bummed to find out Swype isn't available on the nexus since that's the ONLY keyboard I use...anybody know of a solid alternative? I've heard good things about slideIT, has anybody tried it?

    As far as I know... No. It's strictly a discount for ordering online.

    I'm able to pull the site up, but it's still showing as "Sorry, this product is no longer available" which it's been showing all night... hope it goes live soon... unless someone else has a more current working link?

    That is what I was told in by a store rep as well. In addition, since I was doing and early upgrade, I would pay an additional $35 to do this. This fee is waived online.

    So in my case buying it at the store will cost $335 and online will cost $249.

    Ahhh geez. I'll give it a shot. Gonna be a sad panda if I have to order online.

    I was planning on taunting everyone at the fruit store with it on my way back to my car.


    Forget it, just going to order online and be done with it.

    I keep rotating through load balancers (changing the number in www9.letstalk.com, for instance) to see if I get a more fresh page...
