    My post is not to question the op, but vzw. How is it a retail store can do pre-orders but no other store or no body over the phone can. Thats is my question.....its like there is a disconnect in the system with vzw.

    You may be right, but how many other stores out there (corporate or retail) are letting people do pre-orders? Everybody I've seen posting has said that they've tried both corporate and non-corporate stores to no avail. This may not be breaking news, but it's still worth something.

    Well, it's official that at least one store in the UK will be selling the Galaxy Nexus on Thursday....as in TOMORROW (story on AC). I'm not talking pre-sale, either. People in the UK will have them in-hand tomorrow morning. WTF, Verizon!

    I called VZW, they told me no pre-order available and would contact me when it was available. How is this possible if VZW doesn't even have pre-order yet?

    Let me see if I can clear this situation up a little.

    I'm a manager of an A Wireless store. That's a legit recipt, and we definately are doing pre orders. We have no idea when its coming, but we will take your money and when we get one in store we will make damn sure that you get one. Every preorder we do gets ordered and gets priority over the rest of the inventory we are alloted.

    Internally, we have been told week of the 28th, but nothing concrete. Don't worry, we don't know anything that yall don't.

    Thank you, this makes perfect sense and fits with my experience at the store. If you don't mind me asking, do you know where the lead came from? You said you've been told internally, so does that just mean a higher up from the A Wireless company put the word out, or is this information that has been spilled by Verizon Wireless to you guys?
