    I missed that one. That's what I get for not paying attention to commercials. I guess I should Google it to see what I missed. :-D

    At any rate, I like my GNex and I like Verizon. It's better than my old Fascinate (which I thought was an awesome phone), and my two previous Black Berries (A Curve then a Storm 2) don't even rank in the same league. My wife has my old Fascinate and she thinks it's a great phone.

    Where I'm at in South Eastern Arizona, most of the complaints about phone service come from my Sprint and AT&T friends. My Verizon and T-Mobile friends are all pretty much happy campers when it comes to our 3G and voice service. We (Verizon at any rate) don't have 4G LTE yet, but I expect it here in the next four to six months. That's based on past experience of how Verizon rolled out there 3G in this area; not from any official Verizon announcement.

    I'm not all that concerned. It will come out when it comes out and not one second sooner. I still think the GNex is a great phone. I've owned one other Android (Fascinate), two different Black Berries (Curve and Storm 2) and a Palm Treo and the GNex kicks the snot out of all of them. I won't ever own an iPhone, mainly because I am not a Kool-aid drinker. :biggrin:

    Touche... Yes, Kool-aid is a delicious and refreshing drink and I like drinking it (I'm a fruit punch flavor fan myself).

    I just won't drink Apple's Kool-aid. :p

    To the makers of Kool-aid, you can blame Jim Jones for all of the Kool-aid drinker comments.:biggrin:

    Where did you see that? Everything I have seen stems from that BMX tweet which didn't pan out. Just curious.

    Thanks

    Not sure what that means, so I guess it's all in the frosting.

    Not all rom makers are joe shmoe's working out of moms basement........its my dads basement darnit! :)

    Just wanted to add..i thought this same thing from dec 2010-april 2011 when i finally got tired of waiting for froyo on the droid.
    I was scared to death of rooting and at that time it was much more complicated than it is now adays.
    Trust me if you were to root and install a custom rom you would never look back.
    But voiding Warranty is a legitimate concern. and I have to agree with most posters here that verizon and google did a bate and switch and intentionally led people to believe this was a google nexus device (to include having source for it until most developers bought the phone than removed it)
    with expectation of Nexus type updates from google.
    Even with that its a darn good device and i heard a rumor it even makes phone calls.
