    Just got my Nexus and the otterbox and for those that had the og. The Nexus with the otterbox defender case is slightly thinner then the og. I love it. Only thing I have a issue with is that damn speaker its just so quiet

    Just walked in the Verizon store about an hour ago. No wait. My store had about 40 phones, so I wasn't worried. Let the early morning peeps battle it out to get theirs first. I was told they sold over 30 in the first two hours. They had me activated in 10 minutes.

    I had a $30 upgrade available and a Living Social coupon. I WAS ALLOWED to piggy back them both. :biggrin: So I got $80 off the new phone. Since I was allowed both, I decided to bundle it up (even though I thought it was overpriced). I purchased the extra battery/charging kit ($40), the double cover case($30) and some protective shields ($15). Since I got three accessories, I was given even more of a discount. I thought the biggest ripoff was the case.

    So when I went to pay for it, the final bill was $323. I then was given a $17 credit on my nest bill for buying the 3 accessories. So, in essence, I got all the accessories for free.

    My apps seem to be transferring as I'm typing this. So that's cool that I do not have to re-download them all. I have not yet received the O.T.A yet.

    Well that is my story with the Nexus purchase. I was in and out in 30 min. And I got a good nights sleep. Hope the rest of you had good luck locking one in.

    I know that this may come off as me acting like a teenager, but This phone is PIMP!:rating10:

    Now the urge to resit to play with it and have a productive work day :p

    EDIT: Just received the O.T.A. about 90 min later.

    So, I olrdered me Gnex over the phone this AM and paid the standard $269 after NE2 upgrade discount. I called back after reading this and asked the rep about it. It took her a solid 10 minutes just to find the promotion, and then she informed me that the promotion is only available for qualifying phone numbers. I'm not sure what the qualifications are. I live in Michigan and currently have (2) 3g phones on separate accounts... neither qualified for the $100 promo discount. :-(

    I am sure they will know nothing about this when I go in and claim no knowledge. Where did you get this information from? There was/is a promo about upgrading to a smartphone from a non smartphone for $100 but thats all that I have seen.

    I showed up a bit early, got mine and was done in maybe 10 or 15 minutes (sometimes have to go through some extra hoops being on a business accounts that only my parents are authorized signers for). Exchange went smoothly, activated fine, and got the 4.0.1 to 4.0.2 update about 20 minutes after!

    Love it so far! dancedroid:biggrin:

    Got mine! Sign in took a couple of minutes, and the phone did 2 updates already since... I noticed that the notification bar says 3G, not 4G... since I grandfathered my unlimited data plan in from my OG Droid, do I have to upgrade to a 4G plan, or is it done automatically?

    It should be automatic, 4g may not be available in your area.

    My costco has them, but they're not in inventory yet so I have to wait :( Accessory bundle seems kinda lame... can't remember exactly but no dock, no backup battery charger...

    Probably my last time using a physical keyboard on my phone. Nexus, here I come!

    thanks....

    I'm guessing we can't do wifi tether yet? I think this is the only reason why I would root it.

    Anyone trying syncing to their work/corporate email. The security measures they are requiring is scaring me. Saying, "Factory Reset" and "Disable Camera Use". I am assuming the phone will not to that unless there is some hack into our corporate account, correct? Any info would be great.

    Not sure what "qualifying phone numbers" are either....sorry!

    The person in front of me at the VZW store was doing the same thing. He suggested I call *611, the customer service number and that's what I did. This is where I got my info in my previous post from, the rep on the line was reading me the qualifying criteria....FYI, nothing about a qualifying number. Also, I was talking to the phone rep as we were processing my Nexus sale in the store....nothing like having corporate on the line! :biggrin:

    Last FYI, I upgraded from an OG, so I had a smartphone, just went from a 3g device to a 4g device. Also, had no loyalty credits....just the subsidized price when I entered the store.

    Good Luck!
