    I just picked mine up at my local corporate store! It took a little while because I was the first one (got there at 9, no line) and they had to go open boxes in the back. I asked for the phone in the box so I could do the unboxing/activation at home, and they were happy to do it. I'm so excited!

    Apparently Verizon didn't let them know that it was dropping today, so there were no signs or promos out.

    I'm with you. One Thursday a month I'm on call and stuck in the hospital and this is the one. I'm trying to finagle a trip out but it's killing me!

    Nice. There's an Earl Scheib body shop across the street here, maybe I can get a cheap paint job while I am waiting!

    Nope, you're not the only one.

    I ordered mine at 1AM EST and I'm glad I did. The order status page says that it has already shipped, but does not give a tracking number yet.

    I won't be able to get out of work until late this afternoon and wanted to guarantee that I'd have the phone for the weekend.

    It also keeps me from having to deal with traffic and annoying people.

    Phew. I hope I got everything I needed off my old phone! Hard resets are scary, lol.

    I am off to the store, the Best Buys around here opened at 9 am, but I'm guessing I will be ok for stock? I hope so! Otherwise I'll have some driving to do. Wish me luck!

    I will be just getting my phone. The stores here in ABQ do not open until 10am, I called three stores to double check.

    Just in case I don't have a chance before the thread locks down. Thanks for all the input, laughs, stress and joint geekness. See you at the water hole. :D:eek:

    Best buy sucks. Wouldn't sell me one because my make doesn't show up on their system. I'm an account manager and my name shows up on vzw. Oh well. 22 min until corporate stores open up

    Thanks everyone for all the ups and downs!

    Just got home with my Nexus! The store let people in one at a time before they opened at 9 AM and I was about the 6th one in. Was done by the time they opened. Employees said that there were definitely more people there today for the Nexus than for the Razr when it launched!

    Stopped by my local VZW store last night after work to see if I could reserve a GNex since I have meetings all day today. Rep tried to tell me there was still no due date, and they had no idea when it would come out. I held up my phone with the VZW Facebook announcement. She said, "Oh...yeah...that. You can buy it tomorrow."

    What's up with the lying? A gag order is one thing. Tell me that corporate said you can't say anything. But flat out lying? Grrrr.
