Green Box of Jubilation

It appears the Nexus 4's Yellow Box of Death (remember, we didn't make that up) seen by many who ordered in the Nov. 27 wave overnight has morphed into the Green Box of Jubilation, and devices are on their way. (We might have made that up.) Folks in the forums are seeing it as well, and all is right in the world.

For now ...

Our long national nightmare is over ...


The blunderbolt will never see ICS. Verizon has no intentions of taking care of their customers who have unlimited data. The idea is to get you so pissed off and frustrated with all the random reboots, lock ups, unusable 4g that you use that upgrade and waive unlimited data. Giving us ICS would only drag out Verizon's war the consumer, they don't want that or long term customers apparently.

AND to top it off we're not compatible with GTA Vice City... yea I'll be leaving VZW shortly and looking to purchase a phone off plan and go month to month elsewhere. Seems to be the only way to f**k these greedy carriers (well that and using the shit out of your unlimited data)!

Could not agree more! I did the same thing. Moving from TB to a Nexus 4 and going month-to-month. I will never give VZ my $$ after they lured me to buy a crappy phone w/ the promise of lifetime unlimited data and then failed to support the phone AND reneged on their promise of lifetime unlimited. F Them!

I dropped my unlimited data with Verizon and moved to T-mobile's $30 a month no contract unlimited text/data plan with a Nexus4. Best decision I've made this year.

To all those that had the Nexus 4 YBoD:
I read over at xda that someone called and spoke to a Google CSR and were told we will all automatically get a shipping refund. As in everyone that had the YBoD.

Strange. I was lucky enough to have my 11/13 order shipped in the second wave (arrived 11/28--U.S.). I liked it so much that I ordered another 16GB for my wife yesterday (it said 4-5 weeks). Then, I received an email this morning that it has shipped! I guess they received a large batch in to cover all of the orders up to this point...or I just got lucky somehow.

When I woke up today I had an email saying my Nexus 4 has shipped. Funny thing is, Google Now on my Nexus 7 hasn't picked up the email and isn't showing the tracking info. Works every time with Amazon.

sigh thought this might be saying that the nexus will be available in more countries specifically SA :/ sigh better luck next time

living in the uk, orderd my nexus 4 tuesday.. got it today. the 4- 5 weeks wait is a bigger myth then loch ness

Glad to see this, Phil! (I'm happy for you and the others.) I'm sure that it feels like it took forever! This is good news!

Along with the entire rest of Congress.

Congress has a 16% approval rating, yet the VAST majority of incumbents won re-election in 2012? What the F*%& US voters? Are you all on crack?

Ordered on November 28, Delivered to my door December 06 - Today. Can't wait to go home and try it. Hope it doesn't stutter and lag like my Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy S3. Pray for me fellas. I just do not want to get disappointed with my new toy.

I thought Android Army was going to come attack me, coz I said my Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Nexus stuttered a bit here and there. Guess I can duck out of my cover and walk freely again.

Is it true that they say that Android runs on emulators ? I am not an expert on this subject, so if anyone knows, please feel free to explain what does it mean to run on an Emulator.


Ordered mine on 11/27 and just got shipped today. Arrival 12/7. A few days before the 2 to 3 weeks time frame.

I ordered mine on Nov 27th, but it still shows "Pending" on Google Wallet! When I ordered, it said "Estimated Ship 2-3 weeks", but I haven't heard/gotten anything from Google up till today!!!
