Seriously...stop posting things that aren't coming directly from Verizon. Can't we just wait for them to make the announcement or just wake up one day to a nice early christmas surprise with it on the website ready for order?

They release every new phone on Thursday. How do you know that it is even ready?

I know but I can't tell you how or why. It is in regards to the LTE network. We always release major phones on Thursday's but there is no actual reason behind it.

IT IS IN STORES RIGHT NOW!!!!!! how much more ready do you want it dude! i personally saw it,held it in my hand and had one set aside for the release today then got told it is now release "TBD" by the Verizon employee when she opened up here email this morning. it can't be hardware because they are not going to fix then in boxes at verizon stores and if it is a firmware/software issue let us have the phone and get the update ota and be done.

"my" store, as in the one I shop at. In Bossier City, LA. I DID Buy an extended battery, so I was able to touch the future back of my new phone!

Really how many pictures do you need to see before you are convinced it's in the stores. Do you think they just appear on the day they are to be released. Atliest read other articles on this site about this phone and you would know. You can search with a search feature on this site.

I would believe this. When the Samsung Droid Charge was supposed to be released there were plenty in the stock room but there was some kind of hold on them till Samsung and Verizon gave the go ahead. Then it became delayed due to some bug so the phones sat in the stock room for a couple of more weeks.

I was annoyed but I am quite happy with my Thunderbolt. Now using the Rezound battery in it there's no regrets.

While I have no doubt that they do have it in the stores, it was not uncommon for stores I worked at to receive "drop shipments" the morning of the launch date. However, that usually occurred for the non-Thursday launch dates. Thursday is the day of choice because stores receive their weekly shipment on Wednesday (at least when I worked there).

you people need to stop being mad at VZW. THEY have never said a word about a release date. GOOGLE said the phone would be released in November.. and last i checked.. it was. Big G never said it would be november ON VZW. The only reason people are getting so mad is because the phone sites are circulating rumor after rumor after rumor. Which IS their job. It brings hits to the site. But it also aggravates people.

Point is, be mad at the right peeps. VZW never said a word to anyone.

I dont know about u guys, but the constant rumor cycle has worn me out. im ready to hear about the next big thing.. lol

I'm ready to hear about the next big thing, but I feel as if this phone will last me just as long as my OG Droid (2 years and counting until the GNex is out) and I'll be satisfied the entire time.

im not a VZW customer. but i do not like VZW exactly because "THEY have never said a word about a release date". i hate on VZW because their customers deserve an exact release date. just my $0.02.

Maybe they haven't released an official date because they don't know when the device will be ready. If they had promised it last month, people would be more livid than they already are. Why announce something that could be subject to change? That's shooting yourself in the foot. I know people are angry, but if VZW announced an official date and didn't come thru, stuff would really hit the fan. I do customer service at Verizon. I have not had ONE customer asked about this phone. I know plenty of us geeks can't wait, but the run of the mill smartphone user doesn't know or doesn't care about this phone. It'll be out when it's ready, until then people will learn some patience.

this phone very well could be the most influential device of this holiday season. all subsequent androids will be built from its floorplan. VZW needs to have a peg on exactly when its hitting shelves. and they need to share that date with the consumer. give me a date to put on the calendar and i'll wait patiently.

VZW knows when it will launch. VZW is a very cautious and controlled company. I used to work customer service as well as sales with them. They WILL NOT launch it if they know it will have a bug at launch. Some things you cant forsee, but if they catch it before hand, they will let the phone wait for an update.. aka ICS 4.0.1. They tried that whole "patch it after launch knowing it has a bug BS" with the Storm, and that bit them on the ass bigtime. They are not going to do that again very easily.


Hold your horses. The phone is going to be a hot seller if its launched yesterday, today, or tomorrow.

Yeah I am jumping ship, I am going to get this phone for Verizon. This past weekend I was in the deserts of San Diego & my friends Motorola Droid Razr had full service with LTE.

I didn't even have 3G. I was very sad & that was the last straw. I love Sprint for their unlimited data, but I rarely ever went past 3GB of data in any particular month. Verizon wireless has double the data for the same price of $30.00, so I will be more than good with 4GB. Plus at home I will always use Wi-Fi so I don't tap into my 4GB's of data.

My plan will go up by $25.00 per month, that's not too bad. For the $25.00 I will get the best coverage in the U.S., 4G LTE, service inside buildings & service in the deserts of San Diego, CA. I am good with all that.

So long Sprint, I will miss your unlimited data. I just really need the coverage especially when I get my Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime. Will root my Samsung Galaxy Nexus & get free Wi-Fi tether so when I am out and about with the Transformer prime I will enjoy up to 4GB's of 4G LTE.

Sounds like a win win for me!

And thats exactly why VZW's loyalty is so high. When it just needs to work, ur going to be willing to pay for it.

You know you got me thinking. I might do that, for $20.00 more I can get 10GB's. That is more than double.

I am tempted, I have until the 15th to make up my mind. The only thing that is certain is that the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4.65" Super AMOLED HD screen Samsung Galaxy Nexus will most definitely be mine. I can’t wait!

vzw doesn't owe anything to customers when it comes to release dates. They owe them a good phone with the best software possible. The owe customers reception.

Verizon really does have a great network. I always get better service than my AT+T friends.
