    There is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to return this phone. You paid for it and they screwed up. It's not like you funded terrorism here. Keep the phone and be happy you have it early. All the people telling you to return it are probably just jealous they don't have it yet. Don't listen to them and just keep it!!! Or hell send it to me and I'll give you a brand new never used Rezound lol.

    IMO ask for a $350 BB gift card to cover the cost of the phone for all of your time and trouble. they can afford it.

    Keep it. You are not obligated to return it. You walked in during working hours and purchased it. It's yours.

    Test the waters, see what they're willing to give you for the phone. I wouldn't accept anything under $1000. If they refuse to negotiate a buy back price, then tell them you're going to enjoy your unreleased phone and have fun dealing with Verizon.

    Another couple of considerations:

    • If Verizon wants to kill the phone, I am sure their contract will allow them to disable it on their network. The software has not been approved will be enough. (Please, no whining about they don't do it to rooted phones.)
    • If Verizon wants to they could also blacklist you, so you can't get a contract with them - forcing you to another provider. If you need their service, like some of us, that is a problem.
    • Don't be surprised if this thread makes it to news media outlets.

    So ask for a refund + a giftcard for the cost of the phone?

But I wouldn't hesitate to walk into the store with my phone; what are they going to do, physically restrain you and take it? I don't think that would go over too well...
    It is a moral obligation, not a legal one. I have no problem with the manner in which he obtained the phone. The vendor is asking that he return it because they made a mistake. I would definitely negotiate with them for stuff. That would be prudent.

    Absolutely. The worst they can do is say "no" and make a counteroffer.

    I personally would return it but only if I am able to get something out of it from Best Buy for the hassle they are putting you through to return the phone to them.

    Return it if you're having some of the issues that others are having.

    If your GNexus is working perfectly, then don't. This phone may have a ton of issues upon its actual launch, even with the 4.1 OTA, and if you have one that's functioning just fine, it's not worth the risk of losing that stability.

    Moral obligation by YOUR morals. Maybe not by OP's (and definitely not by mine).

    I would want $1000 gift card. That's MSRP of phone + price i paid for upgrade.

    I'm going to call him back and negotiate in two hours when I'm off work. Truth is, I don't have the Razr anymore since I sold it to pay for the Gnex, so I don't have another phone. There really isn't another phone that I want in it's place so I would negotiate for a refund + a free Razr (Or giftcard of equal value)

    If you don't return it, you will simply be banned from every BB in the country.

    All your personal info they have will be sent to all the BB security departments. If you were to escape detection in a BB in the future, you will have to pay cash, because anything with your name on it will set off warning lights and buzzers.

    In all seriousness, I don't really envy your position now. If it was me, I would reluctantly return it. and wait for the official release.

    At least you can come away from all this will one hell of a good story.

    I would be happy with just a refund and enough to cover the cost of phone on contract. people saying you should ask for $1000+ are crazy. If they will give you a giftcard to cover the cost or give you the phone for free why do you need more than that? Maybe some accessories or something. Then again this is the entitled generation...

    Sure, morality is subjective in many instances. The problem is that it could and most likely will affect the store and its employees negatively. If you have an opportunity to right a wrong, you should do so. That is what I was referring to.

    Negotiate in person. Make sure you have your receipt on you.

    yes. plus the tax. make a big deal out of time lost from work, lost personal time, having to install/uninstall apps/widgets/screens, transportation, etc. it was their mistake. and their mistake cost you money in time and aggravation and hassle. they should compensate you for their mistake. how much? the cost of the phone. you spent X hours on getting/setting up/returning this phone. they can afford it. and they will STILL make money on your cellular contract.

    i wouldnt return it unless the person that sold it to you told you in person they were going to lose their job if you didnt return it...or unless they are going to hook you up with whatever you feel is fair..i personally wouldnt take less than $100 in stuff from them. Make sure whatever you do, you get it in writing and have if possible take your old phone and get it on video. just to make sure.

    Give it back and void the transaction. Make sure they agree to GIVE you one for FREE, NO CONTRACT, because of THEIR mistake. That is a much easier thing for them to eat than the alternatives.
