    A lot of people are asking about keeping their unlimited data plans, especially if they tried to upgrade, and were told that they’d have to sign up for a new data plan, losing the unlimited.

    The problem is that the clerks in the store, have often barely been trained how to ring up a phone, much less how to override the system when it tries to automatically sign everything up as if it’s a new account.

    Don’t worry though.  All you have to do is call customer service after you leave.  They can see your account details, including what they were before the change, and can easily put things back the way they were.

    • Yes. You always have the option to keep whatever you had before. Unlimited Data plans can be grandfathered in and the tiered plan will be dropped.

    Gnex in hand!
    5 People waiting outside the local VZW store. None of us were baristas.

    • Store does not open until 9am here in WI. Leaving in about 10 minutes, my two are already on hold!

  • guest

    Still not available at bestbuy because they’re a-holes

    • none

      I went to bestbuy yesterday trying to see if they could sell one early the clerk mentioned they have to actually ship the nexus back and (this particular???) best buy MAY not even carry it.

  • Can some people give reports on the lines out on the east coast?

    • At my one local store in affluent, suburban Philadelphia, there was no line.  They had enough sales reps to handle the 3 guys waiting for the doors to open at 8:00.  While I was buying my phone, 2 more guys showed up, nobody had to wait.  A woman walked in around 8:20 but she just had a question about her own phone.  Plenty of GNex’s in stock.

      • Nice thanks.  There was 13 dudes waiting out here in the cold in Colorado.  There were like 5 poor saps that came in after opening who had just normal phone questions.  I felt bad for them.

    COMMERCIAL….Niiiiiiiice…..just saw an actual Verizon COMMERCIAL on tv for the Galaxy Nexus! Sure, it wasn’t a super hyped up ad, but it was a TV ad nonetheless….a Christmas theme, pushing it as a perfect gift and highlighting “video chat with up to 9 of your friends.”

  • And please CHECK that you are the Account Owner or Account Manager on your wireless plan.  If you are not the Account Owner or an Account Manager you will not be able to do the upgrade.  The guy behind me in line had to step out of line while his mom made him an Account Manager, took like 20 minutes of him waiting for his mom to do it.

  • GOT IT!  Walked into my local Verizon Wireless store at 8:00 AM, was the second in line of 5 dudes all getting the Nexus, walked out 25 minutes later with my new phone.  Manager said he had plenty in stock.

  • ruhawaiian

    Ordered my phone this morning around 1 this morning :)!!  I prefer that I activate the device rather than a Verizon salesperson at the store messing around with it before I can.

    Does anyone know why some people got to keep their unlimited data and some people (like me) had to switch?  Should I just call customer service after I get the phone and ask them to switch me back?

    • JT

      Yes.  I’ve had my local Verizon Store screw up my account before, or tell me that I had to do something that I didn’t think was right.  Just call customer service, and they’ll set it straight.

  • Stewie

    I have the $300, but want my long overdue upgrade, keeping my unlimited plan, will that occur and could it be $50 off for the upgrade?

  • CoFoltman84

    gotta say. i’ve been on the fence about switching from my Razr(it’s a good phone, dispite blur and all of you Moto haters). But when i got the VZW email this morning saying it was released, I packed up my Razr box and am heading to the VZW store after work to see the Nexus in my hand…we’ll see what happens from there…

  • just ordered mine! woohoo

  • Damn.. I can either get this phone tonight.. or.. I can wait just a lil bit more for the Galaxy Nexus S.. 😀

    Btw.. I wonder how F*ckFace feels about how a lot of Razr owners are returning it for this device 😀

  • forgiventhief

    Newegg has them for 219.99 new contract and 249.99 on upgrade

  • forgiventhief

    Anybody know if the corporate store will give me the $50 discount I have for device upgrade I have on Verizon’s site? I’d rather have it in hand tomorrow, but if they won’t give me the $50 discount at the corporate store, i will order online. Anybody know?

    Odd. The Verizon page for the Nexus says 32 GB microSD preinstalled. They probably just saw that it has 32 GB storage and assumed that it was on an SD.

    • …How are you going to have yours on friday?? Geez, I want that shipping option instead!.. I ordered mine like 40mins ago, and I know it wont ship till tomorrow, making me maybe hopefully get it on Saturday, if not then Monday. 

      • Anonymous

        VZW.com defaults to free overnight shipping. So it would ship tomorrow and arrive Friday.

      • Gianna R Lomax

        Because I chose the expedited shipping for an extra $13.

  • Awoodx

    I got it ordered mine just before ten pm on the Verizon Website unlimited data remained I  had the phone added to my bill no problem. Pretty easy going I am happy to report .Assuming friday is delivery day with free overnight shipping … cannot wait .I hope everyone enjoys there new Toy.:)).

    • Man, I got free 2-day shipping. Overnight for $12.99. Went with free. Dammit.

  • David Salsburg

    Ordered online. Success.  Rep assured me that any phones over $149.99 they will automatically ship overnight.  So he had me select the $12.99 overnight option (FREEOVRNT promo is not valid anymore), and they will credit me.  Also – i had to pick a new plan as well, which is annoying since i have a corporate unlimited data plan.  
    Rep also assured me that once i get the phone activated, i just have to call back into Customer Service and they will put my old plan back.  He even suggested i take the email of the chat transcript and keep it for proof (which i did). Note to everyone – online order waives the 35 activation fee (if an upgrade).. every time i have upgraded at brick and mortar VZW they always have dinged me that activation fee.  So i save $35 bucks, and wait one extra day for a fedex delivery on friday!

    • Anonymous

      I’m probably going to go with LetsTalk and save $125 and get it on Friday with their free overnight. I would really like it tomorrow though…

  • ORDERED!  Yea baby!

  • Illwillnukka

    I just finished putting through my online order. The price came to $269. 99 plus tax and then another $13 for overnight shipping…

    Ordered…..unlimited data intact…..life it good 🙂

  • 11 hours 40 minutes till stores open on the West Coast, I’ll be there waiting to throw my money at them.

    Edit: just got an email from Verizon announcing the phone, hmmm a little slow. lol

        I was on an old blackberry plan.  Choices were 250 for $5 or 1000 for $10.  I went with B)

  • Just ordered mine online. (I would have gone to a store to help out a representative, but none of the retailers around me have phones yet.) Cost me $250 with a $50 credit, and I got to keep my unlimited plan. All good here! 

    • Same here with the stores. I’m getting up early to drive an hour north to an actual Verizon Store who has them. Worth it I think.

  • already has over 60 FB likes. sweeeeeet

  • Graham Wilson

    it says its 289? weird! i though it was gonna be 299!

  • Miked333

    VZ Wireless wouldn’t let me keep my unlimited plan.  I couldn’t complete the order until I chose a new plan (4GB for $30).  

    • Yeah, me either.  I think I’ll just call back once I receive the phone and activate it.  Either way, I never used 4GB before.

    Don’t listen to the dumbass reps. This phone is coming out tomorrow. I literally go up to 3 reps at my local store today and the first 2 played dumb and said they were getting razrs, finally went to the 3rd and she let me mess around with the gnex and said its in for tomorrow. And btw, the phone is ridiculous. The screen is f’ing amazing, its snappy as hell and ics looks great. The hype has been met for sure. Enjoy your gnex people. Its been worth the wait.

  • i just exhaled for what feels like the first time in months.  finally. 😀

      Call em up and ask, I just did and they gave it to me. I didn’t get the mailer; just mentioned to 3g to 4g aspect and that I was thinking of going to a 4g. The CSR even attempted to order a nexus for me 2 diff ways. He said the second way would of given me an early order but wouldn’t get the discount. He is going to call me back 2morrow so I can get the discount and the nexus.  Btw, he was the one to bring up the nexus; although he did try to sell me the other 4g phones first.

    People keep saying this release is botched, but I guaruntee this  will be by far the best delling Nexus device to date.

    What’s the process for returning a phone from the rent-a-droid razr program (a.k.a extended holiday refund policy)

      $35 restocking fee as far as I am aware.

        Do I have to wait for them to mail it in? I can’t wait ANY longer!

        • QtDL

          Mail it in to where? Just go to the corp store and swap it out, unless you got the Razr from Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc. Their policies might be different.

        • You do not. I just returned my Razr today. You get to keep your new every 2 deal as well. 

  • QtDL

    I find it a little odd that the online chat support VZW reps are still saying “we don’t have any info on that device”, “we don’t have a release date yet”. That was about 60 seconds ago that I spoke w/ one – unless they are trained to lie right up until the release.

    • the press release wasn’t suppose to come out till tomorrow

      • QtDL

        Got it. Those poor drones are trained to lie then. 🙂

      • Tim242

        Verizon emailed the release to every blog. Oh, and they tweeted it.

    • SHAOLIN

      I received the same treatment. I literally asked if they had a Nexus on display and he was very defensive. Then again, he works at Best Buy for a reason. I wouldn’t worry about it. 

      • QtDL

        The store reps are only slightly more knowledgeable than the online reps. I already got confirmation from the local Android nerd on staff and the manager at my corp store that it will be out tomorrow. I was just curious as to what the online reps would say considering it goes on sale in 2.5 hours here on the east coast.

  • Anonymous

    Not to sound like a negative nancy or whatever, but why isnt this posted somewhere on Verizon’s website? It’s not in the press release section. The one about expanded 4G cities is on there, but no mention of the Nexus. You’re telling me they just an email to a few tech websites? Seriously?

    • QtDL

      It’s all over VZW’s Twatter feed – must be the only way they plan on advertising that phone. I also got a personal email from the manager at my local corp store earlier this evening saying that the launch was indeed confirmed for tomorrow.

      • Anonymous

        You’re right. That must be the only way. They certainly thumbed their nose up at people who signed up for email alerts.

        • VerizonHater

          I didn’t get anything at all from VZW.  Been checking my phone all night since I found out because one of the stores told me I sould get a text message when its released.  I’ve gotten nothing.

          • QtDL

            Check your text messages at 9 am tomorrow. Lol.

    • VerizonHater

      Google it.

        That’s my point – I only find links to other tech sites. Nothing from Verizon direct. Don’t they usually have press releases on the site? I’m hoping they are just waiting to add it tomorrow.

        http://news.verizonwireless.com/ 

  • I returned my RAZR today and the guy at the store brought out his Rezound and made me play with it. He really wanted me to buy it right then and there. He recommended it over every other phone out there.

    Not sure why the sales rep was so set on the Rezound, but it was slightly annoying

    • QtDL

      Probably makes more commission selling a Razr or Rezound than a Nexus, but I could be wrong. Maybe he just really loves his Rezound.

      • Are they on commission there? If so, you sound like a very smart man.

        I always assumed that they weren’t, but it does make sense that they would be.

    I think Verizon needs to apologize to Samsung and Google for how they botched this release.

    • Anonymous

      You call it botched, VZW see’s it another way. The only official date they ever had was the 9th, which got delayed most likely due to the 4G outage and the arrival of 4.0.2. that just started rolling out today. I was just as upset as the rest of us but there is no need for an apology from them.

      • VerizonHater

        Yeah, but everyone that I know is saying that there is no marketing for this phone… just rumors that everyone has been hearing.  I’m glad its getting released tomorrow.  I’ll be there first thing in the morning to get it, but I still think VZW f*ed this one up.

        • Anonymous

          Yea, I feel you man. I think they did butcher it but we will never know all the real reasons behind it. The reason there was no marketing is because to VZW this is their stepchild phone. They don’t want this in any way to steal from the Droid branded sales. If they had it their way they would have all of us in a Droid branded phone. You can’t blame them from a business standpoint I guess. It comes down to $$$ and they make more off a Droid branded phone. Also, I don’t think they really realized how many of us have been waiting for this phone even before it was officially announced by Samsung. Maybe this opened their eyes for any future Nexus phone on VZW, I can only hope though. Let’s just rejoice that it is here and come this time tomorrow we will all be so immersed in our new phones we wont even be thinking about how long we waited…

      Dude…the average customer service rep at VZW is so far out of the loop its not even funny. The phone is coming tomorrow whether you believe it or not. Just get down to your local VZW as soon as you can tomorrow or you may be disappointed they are all sold out because you “though it was BS”.

      dude ..go to facebook and twitter and look at verizon posts / tweets…or samsungmobileUSA…its coming out tomorrow…be excited!!!!!   that rep wasn’t as on top of it as you are 🙂

    Just a reminder for the Southern California residents. They open at 10 am, not 9. At least the one’s in Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego. 

    • djjsin

      i am confirming this.  the store manager i talked at my local los angeles store said they currently have no plan to open early like on other launches.

      He said compared to all the other phone launches this galaxy nexus launch has been really screwed up and left them scrambling.  Usually they know by monday if a phone is releasing that week, all materials are sent, they are sent the line barriers.  But with this phone, all they have is the phone.  nothing else that they would have for a “launch”

  • amotamatapia

    Does anyone know whether if I have 3 phones (OG Droids), that 2 of them can be upgraded to the Nexus while the third one waits for the Droid4? Thanks

    • Darthseph23

      I can’t see why not.  You may not be able to purchase 2 GalNex’s at the same time though tomorrow, since it is a launch day.

      Upgrades are per line, not per account so their shouldn’t be a reason they can deny you an upgrade.  They can deny more than one GalNex to a person if they want due to supply and demand and wanting to spread the phone around and open new accounts at launch however.

      Note I never mentioned that was a smart sales idea.  It makes some sense though.

    • I can confirm that upgrades are transferable between lines, if thats what you’re asking?

  • I can finally put my OG droid into retirement.

  • swung by my local Verizon Store and they said they dont have any in stock but will have them in the morning. They are such Liars in the store. I would rather buy online but dont want to wait for delivery. They also charge +$20 for early upgrade at the store. Whats up with that?

  • Cant wait to hold it in my hands, decide that I dont like it and buy the Bionic anyway…

  • Awesome! can’t wait! just tossed my iphone 4 in the garbage. Who is buying this full retail price?

  • Customers can find them at all verizon stores. Bullsh!t. I just called 4 verizon wireless corporate stores and not one has it in stock. They still have time to receive shipments today, but doesn’t look like it.

    • djjsin

      the two stores close to me in los angeles are saying the same thing.  They still dont even know if its releasing tomorrow.

      • I was just at one of the Verizon stores here in Daly City and i heard one of the workers there talk to someone on the phone about the galaxy nexus saying they can’t hold one for them and they needed to come in tomorrow to get one.

        • ssjnimma

          I called the only two stores we have in my town and they will not hold the phone, and also said they currently had non in stock, but showed shipments arriving tomorrow and would call me to let me know when they got it in. 

          Also called RadioShack and they also had none in stock and also could not hold any…. 

          Did not try Walmart all though that could be another try….

    • QtDL

      Try asking for the manager at your local corp store. I only dealt with the manager at my local store and she had no problem holding the phone and accessories for me. It’s been sitting on hold for me for a week now….finally glad I can pick it up tomorrow!

  • Anonymous

    i’m surprised. i didn’t expect this to be released before christmas. i would have figured verizon would delay this phone till after christmas so people would instead buy a razr or rezound; they want people to buy a phone with bloatware instead. verizon logic.

    Quick update. Just called an ind. retail. outside our mall and she said they are definitely selling them tomorrow. Only have 4 in stock and already pre-sold 3, so I got the last one, unofficially of course. She took down all my info and has everyhting waiting. Of the 4 main VZW stores I called not one admitted to having the nexus in stock WTF. Did say though for me to call her at 10 in the morning just to make sure everything is still good to go before I drive up there???. I have an original droid and this has been going on since the introduction known as the  debacle of the Bionic.  She said she could give me an extra $8 for trading in my droid. That made her really laugh. Its going to be a long night.

    • MikeB

      Also to add I left my name and number with 3 local corporate stores 2-3 hours ago of course when they had no idea when the Nexus would be released and would not tell me if they had any in stock.Never have heard back from them. Ridiculous.

      Thanks, so do we, LOL.  😉   With all the phones being so buggy upon release, we must keep expectations realistic.  (Especially with VZW messing with it and updating it).. LOL

      I also want to thank you for not ?wanting? one, but not hating on the MANY of us that do, just for the unlocked bootloader on VZW.  Have a RAZR here, is nice, but too much blur crap on it (used to stock… like my DROID).

      • Anonymous

        Yeah Ive messed with stock Android and I dont like it. The ROM I have on my Bionic has a fork in the road for keeping Blur or De-Bluring it completely. I kept Blur. 

        Even on my unlocked Atrix running CM7 and is pretty much a ICS clone is frustrating to use. I just prefer the Bionic’s version of Blur. 

    • Darthseph23

      Agreed mate.  TBH, I will be keeping my Razr.  I am not keen on the phone’s design and really haven’t liked Samsung phones in the past. Kudos to those of you that will find enjoyment with the phone.  Stock ICS really was the only major selling point for me regarding the GalNex.  While that was nice, once I got to see and play around with the Razr I was set.

      I don’t use stock launchers though, so I really don’t notice BLUR at all in the phone.  Go Launcher runs perfectly fine, and BLUR isn’t really in any of the major settings or calling features.  I pretty much run the GO line of products for interfacing and the BLUR lies in the background as the interface for the hardware.  If all I see of BLUR is the dialer and the settings, I’m fine with that.

      Kudos guys, enjoy you GalNexes.  – From A former OG user

  • AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Wyveryx

    I’m excited to finally hear they are going to release it, was half expecting a DEC 31 11:59:59 release…

    For $300 though, well I think I’m gonna wait just a little while. I shelled out that for my Bionic because they couldn’t confirm the Gnex, and of course within a week of getting my Bionic the damned thing dropped by $100. So, I’ll wait. If that means till my tax return, then well, maybe by then it will be down in price. Just tired of shelling out big bucks for the latest and greatest only to have them pummel the price a week or two later.

    • Adam Metzner

      You know that Verizon extended the return window. You might be in it. $25 restocking fee

      • Wyveryx

        problem is that I highly doubt it, I’ve had my Bionic since release. It’d be nice to be able to return it, but alas, I doubt that return window covers 3 months lol

      You’ve asked for it. Here it is: Nexus 12/15/11. Available in all channels. Online ordering scheduled for 1:00AM Eastern.3 minutes ago Favorite Retweet Reply

    • They said it goes on sale at 1:00 A.M 12/15.

  • BIG CONCERN

    ·         Customers that purchase a Galaxy Nexus by Samsung will need to subscribe to a Verizon Wireless Nationwide Talk plan beginning at $39.99 monthly access and a smartphone data package starting at $30 monthly access for 2 GB of data.
    I thought if you already have a unlimited data plan they were not going to make us convert our plans to the tiered data plans?

    • every person from vzw i have spoken with said that if you are grandfathered in nothing will change on your plan unless you the user changes it.. I also asked since the nexus is going to be 4g LTE will that count as a change..and have been told no..so if you’re grandfathered in like me  you should be fine man..just make sure you read everything a few times before confirming anything you’re not sure of.

    the verizon store has a busy signal hahaha

  • I wish I had the will power to boycott this phone after VZW took their time and made the US the last place to get it. I mean really this is the most advanced phone right now and we are the last to get it. You would think companies would be dying to sell us this phone. This is what you get when 2 companies dominate the wireless industry for 300million people, no competition. That said I’ll be at the store tomorrow and will forget about their corporate greed.   #alltalk

      I would rather wait a few extra weeks and pick up a phone that has all of the kinks worked out than have it arrive earlier and full of bugs.

    funny, i just called my local verizon store and they have no information about it releasing tomorrow.  he said they do have them in there warehouse, but ever since verizon delayed the release date he hasnt heard anything.  And said if it was going to be launching tomorrow would be putting up advertisements, changing staff for the launch etc.

    I’ve talked with this same mananger multiple times due to a return issue with my account, and he’s has always been very upfront and truthful with me…

    Is there any official statement from anyone sayin its released tomorrow?  if so link please?

      • Tell me why I just called a Verizon retailer (for the 2nd time today) and both times they have flat out denied it was coming out tomorrow, even saying that it is definitely NOT coming out tomorrow. He said (2 min ago) the store would have been set up for it already if that was the case…

        • Neutronbomb

          I was literally on the phone with my local corporate store when this was posted and was told the same thing “It would be set up already and we would have heard something if it was releasing tomorrow.”  Luckily I saw it early enough to tell them they might want to check their info. lol

          • Johnfranckiv

            Man, That’s because it’s a corporate store.. I work for a premium retailer, and our training is so much better.  We actually have a full week of training, ( not to mention daily training briefs.)  We were taught some sales, but mostly product knowledge.  We have known it was the 15th since late saturday night.  Vzw gets very strict about not discussing the phones, but there are ways to discuss it with customers without actually saying things on vzw’s no-no list.  We’ve had them in stock since the 6th, and I can’t wait until tomorrow.  I have about 6 customers that i talked out of razrs because of just discussing this phone.

          I’ve come to a conclusion that most Verizon Reps are a little slow off the Yelow Bus. Numerous times I’ve had to direct a VZW employee to Droid Life for all of their training needs!!!!!!

          • I just called for the 3rd time today lol, and spoke with the same guy. He said he just got the emails and confirmed that it IS coming out tomorrow. Took my name and will hold one for me. 9am couldn’t come sooner!

          • Anonymous

            Yeah, same here. I stopped by Verizon after work and the guy said he had just received the word. But they wouldn’t let me reserve one. I guess they aren’t expecting a line since it was never advertised and was only just now made official (total disrespect for Google IMO).

        • Because they haven’t been told about it – the PR came out just moments ago.  Retailers are always, always the last ones to trust, because they’re always the last to know.

          • Because hardly anybody knows about it. VZW is doing this soft release so they can skew the numbers toward “Droid” branded phones numbers. This way they can say more people want skinned & locked down phones apposed to unlocked vanilla phones. People who don’t read tech blogs don’t even know of this phones existence & will probably be steered towards the Razr or Droid 4(when it launches) anyway. Either way I have one set aside for me first thing tomorrow morning.

          • Ken Klucina

            hehehehe…i kinda sent verizon a strongly worded letter…then i saw this post.

            I would like to know a solid release date for the Galaxy Nexus. I have been waiting for this phone since November. There has been delay after delay and it seems like Verizon doesn’t want the public to know about the phone. Many people are becoming annoyed about this phone not being released. Many people are leaving Verizon because of all the trouble they put their customers through. Please do not try to recommend any other phones to me because the Droid Razr and the HTC Rezound will not be getting Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) for a while. Please answer my request and do not say “We do not have any information about this phone”, because we all know you do. There are Galaxy Nexus’s in both Best Buy and Verizon. Thank You.

            No joke, I ran mine from 100% to 0% in 3 hours. 

            All I did was have tunein radio pro running at my desk.

            After the phone died, it was so dead that it took an hour back on the charger before it would come back to life.

            Lovely phone in some ways, but it has so many flaws, in my eyes.

            That is why it is the best device of 2011 🙂 Nexus just have ics going for it period.

          • Rolo72

            Something ELSE it has going for it is an unlocked bootloader, something that your “best device of 2011” doesn’t have. Have fun with your crippled device.

            And the better screen, lack of giant bezel and removable battery. Oh and vanilla android, an unlocked bootloader and instant Google updates.

            Actually, you made one of the biggest points the Nexus has going for it yourself – it has ICS. Enjoy not sniffing it til at least 6 months from now.

            Why are you so stupid? That’s not a rhetorical question. I really wanna know how you can wake up so stupid. Did you take a class, or is it something you were born with?

            go back to Arkansas stupid turd. If you are hurt because i said the truth about your nexus that is not my problem. You are a hick.

      I predict there will be a limited supply because Verizon doesn’t think it will sell well. There’s a huge demand and will saleout in a few hours and there is going to be a lot of angry fan bois that will have to wait til.January.
