More in the Verizon Galaxy Nexus forums

Android Central

The wait is over, and you can now order the Verizon Galaxy Nexus online!  Many will say it's a month late, many will say there never was a date, but none of that matters now, and you'll all have soon forgotten.  Things change when you get the shiny Nexus feeling in your hands, the birds sing more, the sun shines brighter, dogs and cats lie together in harmony, you get the idea.  Like all good things in life though, this one isn't free.  It will set you back $299 with a new contract, but that's the same as any high-end LTE phone available on Big Red.

G Nexus

What are you waiting for?  Go grab one!

And with a 32gb memory card.
Also interesting was that they were trying to give me accessories for the rezound.

strikethree says:

The Galaxy Nexus does not include a memory card nor does it have a memory card slot.

It only uses 32 GB internal storage.

mykpfsu says:

I remember that now. Yet strangely Verizon lists a 32gb microsd as an included accessory.


To heck with that. I'm walking into a store to buy one on my way to work tomorrow.

Actually 32gb built in

BartmanJax says: has it for $219.95!

"Things change when you get the shiny Nexus feeling in your hands, the birds sing more, the sun shines brighter, dogs and cats lie together in harmony, you get the idea" beautiful bastard...this brought a tear to my eye

TruGenius says:

32gb internal storage is interesting, will find out if its true tomorrow. Maybe finally a pleasant surprise from verizon or another marketing mistake

strikethree says:

Verizon version is 32 GB internal while the international version is 16 GB.

hmmm says:

Probably the reasoning they will use for the $299 price.

tayw1135 says:

You can get the samsung nexus for only $150 after coupon code $75VZN and $25 off for using this link to order: Thanks!

jbecerril says:

Mine only went down to 174.99 but im still way happy with that

Are these guys a trustworthy retailer? I've heard horror stories of people using sites like these, just curious if they've finally become non-shady...

Toxa says:

Got mine as well for $249 with an upgrade! Finally!!! Will be here Friday before 10am!

nctrnl says:

It's telling me I have to change my unlimited data plan because the phone requires a different plannnnn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Salacon says:

I'm not certain if you're messing around, so I'll just say that if you read it, you're still getting an unlimited plan; the plan just has to be altered to accommodate 4G capabilities.

mykpfsu says:

Ding, ding, ding. I had no changes upgrading from my Thunderbolt.

Comineeyeaha says:

How did you manage to upgrade from your Thunderbolt already? I tried to get them to move my upgrade date up, but they said 1 year early is way too soon. If I can get them to approve it, I can go to Best Buy and sell them back my Thunderbolt (I got the Buy Back program for free) and then I'll come out even.

mykpfsu says:

Transferred an upgrade from another line on my account. Also I only had a 1 year contract on my Tbolt.

Read it closely. You don't need to change it. Go ahead and keep it on unlimited.

boxerboy says:

$199 on Amazon for new contracts, $249 for adding a line. Didn't check for upgrades

skyboxer says:

Yeah I got as far as them asking me to give up unlimited data too. Unlimited 4g data was not a choice. I'll upgrade by other means.

cowboys2000 says:

Amazon says backordered... delivery 12/29/2011

King Speedy says:

I was asked to "change" my data plan, but was able to reconfirm it as unlimited. The change is only an accounting thing since it changes from 3G to 4G. In my final shopping cart the data plan is still listed as:

"Data: Unlimited Email & Web for Smartphones (personal email)"

Yadao says:

All the refreshing was worth it, I was among the VERY first to order it online!

Have my "appointment" at 9am at my local VZW tomorrow. Looking grim for my rent-a-razr. Its been a great few weeks with the Razr, I just gotta have one nexus. Wonder how my rep is gonna react? Oh well, I spend huge amounts of money at VZW.

hmmm says:

You actually make appointments and have a rep at a cell phone store? Wow.

CaddyDave says:

Just sold my warranty replacement thunderbolt for 285. Vzw rep told me 250 with upgrade and ups discount. Can we say free phone #winning

Just ordered mine over the phone at 10:30 pm Weds night in Los Angeles. Nearly got the 3G to 4G discount but then the CSR came back and said it was only for Midwest orders. At least I did get a $50 NE2 and grandfathered unlimited data. The sales rep said her system crashed once and then was running real slow as she tried to place my order. Gee I wonder why? ;> But after a second try the order did go through! Woot!

Anybody know if the corporate store will give me the $50 discount I have for device upgrade I have on Verizon's site? I'd rather have it in hand tomorrow, but if they won't give me the $50 discount at the corporate store, i will order online. Anybody know?

AsianBob says:

I have a NE2 discount of only $30. However, when I start the process of an online upgrade, the price is listed at $249.99. I have no idea what's going on here?

Do you guys think this is a glitch that's online only? If I go into a store tomorrow, will that price pop up in their system or will they price it at $269.99?

Upping the shipping to overnight is the same price as buying in person with tax, as long as it comes up $249.99.

thamenacing1 says:

I had a choice...go to my pregnant wife's first ultrasound, or go to the Verizon store first thing in the morning.

Needless to say, I chose the Galax.....nah, just kidding. I ordered it online, there is nothing in the world that would make me miss my wife's first ultrasound! :)

I've waited this long (for the Baby and the Galaxy Nexus). I can wait another day!

tronthedon says:

Congrats! (and I'm glad you were joking haha)

phuthanvinh says:

Congratulation buddy!!! god bless your first baby and family.

Maestro1#AC says:

Congrats all you Bastards on big red, playin the waiting game over here on black and yellow.

Dostovel says:

You know what it is, Black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow uh huh

patfactorx says:

You're doing it wrong if you are buying it straight from Verizon. This phone is easily under $200 on most sites.

nitestorm says:

The only problem with ordering from Let's Talk is if you only want 1000 text messages for $10 instead of the unlimited, then the price of the phone is higher at $299.99 minus $75 discount code.

joshua.worth says:

In my dreams

15israellai says:

Exactly the same date as in Hong Kong~

jwsnj3rd says:

If your not in a 4g area. Do you think you'd still get the galaxy nexas or would that kill the experience?

atlas9171 says:

I would imagine it would be very similar, parts of it will just be slower.

hmmm says:

I would say people spend a huge portion of their time on wifi. I know I do at work or at home which is where I use my phone the most. You will have just as good of an experience.

Blah says:

Ordered over the phone. Very bad customer service, but it's ordered.

jharo says:

...and VZW website not allowing orders...

Scottatron says:

Enjoy the phone people, had my GSM version for about a week and it is awesome.


Just got the dreaded low space warning again today on the Dinc. VZN site still has available so overnighting for $12.99. Supposed to have by 3pm tomorrow. $269 per before upgrade on contract. Thanks to old Alltel data contract, 4G was rolled in at same price as old contract. Still only $69 for unlimited data. 3G & 4G.

I really am going to miss this "low space" warning message... NOT!

yardie87 says:

HAs anyone noticed that the verizon Nexus learn more page is full of pics of the GSM and not the actual...thicker Verizon LTE version....hmmmmmmmm..TRICKERY :)

vickery1956 says:

Galaxy Nexus looks nice, but I am sticking with my awesome HTC Rezound!! Loving this phone!

Cubfan says:

Great, the phone is out. So do we have to have an ad that pops up when you go to your site now that is impossible to get rid of on my Android phone browser?

Cubfan says:

Thanks for getting rid of the ad.

Big Kahuna says:

All the reading and even confirmed with Best Buy employees that this phone HAS an SD Card slot in it. Hopefully someone here that actually has one now can verify.

mully says:

Went to my local Costco to pick one up.....they didn't get any. CRAP!

dragon19104 says:

For those of you whose NE2 eligibility comes due in the near future, do not hesitate to contact Verizon Customer Support to request an upgrade today. My NE2 anniversary was Jan 2, though the CSR was more than happy to change the date and issue the upgrade in order to book the sale this year. VZW is highly incented to boost revenue as their fiscal year ends at the end of the month. My SGN will arrive tomorrow via overnight shipment. The CSR further exceeded my expectations by crediting my account the cost of overnight shipment. Good luck!
