    I couldn't leave it alone so I called them. Man are those reps mentally drained, serious call volumes today. Anyway, the rep looked up my order, said it will be shipped out Wednesday AM, 2 day shipping so we should get our stuff before the week is over. Forgot to ask whether signature will be required and which carrier they ship with.

    My Galaxy Nexus shipped 2nd day air via UPS, and I don't believe it required a signature. IIRC no one was home when it was delivered, but I do have one of those signature things on file with them so that maybe be why I didn't need to sign anything.

    It was also shipped the day after I ordered it.

    Thanks for the update. That means it should get here by Friday. I have all of next week off. Hopefully it doesn't keep me from all the winterizing house projects I have planned.

    Thanks for the info. Delivery before the week is over is very likely.

    That last podcast made me a believer in the phone as well, now I simply can't figure out which one I'm more pumped about, the phone or my first tablet.

    How long until the thermal parameters file gets modded? It can be a feature, "Nexus doesn't run hot, it just warms your hand when it's cold for a more comfortable outdoor user experience"

    Now instead of saying "Coming Soon", it says "Sold Out", for both Nexus 4 models.

    Hmmm... Maybe I get nothing because I'm in Canada.

    P.S. https://plus.google.com/106515095432315677569/posts/fAA6PNbUxCK?authuser

    This guy claims...

    Didn't get yours? That's okay...neither did I...and neither did a lot of Google staff...yet (yes, they order phones just like the rest of us). You will, though...you will. If you don't get it today, the next scheduled release is in 3 days once they can get a better handle on orders and stock.

    and...

    They are well ahead of production, unlike with the Nexus 7 months ago.

    --

    Take that with a healthy dose of salt of course.

    I really hope it gets here on Friday so I can scoop it up before someone else gets home, for whom it is destined. Was afraid it would be out of stock if I ordered it for delivery in December.

    I gave up & picked up a Galaxy S3 instead. $275 off Craigslist. Mint condition, too.
    My Verizon contract is up next November, so I will wait to see what the next Nexus brings.
    Now I don't have to give up my unlimited data plan.

    Here's mine. And please no one give me grief about $20 for a bumper. Yes, I am sure that I could buy one on Amazon for $2 in a week or two, but I am a clumsy guy who is prone to accidently launching cell phones temporarily airborne. I will be travelling for Thanksgiving and I don't want to chance it.

    Missed out, but CM10 is finally on a stable build for my TMo GS3 so I'm not too disappointed.

    So... I had two in my cart at 8:3xam PST... closed the google wallet thing after I had edited my address information... then bam... had to do things over again. I gave up after 10 minutes of trying. I'll just wait. I have my Lumia 920 to tie me over until the next big thing.

    I tried pretty damn hard to snag one but every time I would add the phone in the cart, it would say the cart is empty.
    Oh well. I'll just wait.

    I almost bought the 16GB Nexus 10 just now, but I'm going to be patient and wait for the 32GB to be back in stock. A little easier to wait since the Nexus 4 is also sold out for now.

    Walmart is carrying the 32gb N10. I would buy from Walmart to avoid the shipping cost and easy return.

    Hmm, good idea. Guess I'm just waiting for the N4 then. I noticed the "Notify Me" thing is gone, is there anyway to get an update when it's back in stock?

    reporst are that they are fixing the notify my system, maybe it will appear after it's actually working.


    i called up support today, i was told i'll get a tracking number today or early tomorrow, and I should have it thursday or friday.

    also, no way to upgrade to 1-day shipping.

    currently, my google wallet page only shows that google received my order. is that what yours states as well? i'm trying to get an idea of when to expect a shipping confirmation and/or tracking information. i'm going out of town this weekend and would hate for it to arrive after i've already left town :(

    Rumor is they're planning on shipping them out today. That would be a Friday delivery for most people.
