    Does anyone know, when VZW will be selling the Nexus 6 in their stores?

    I was by a TMO store, and I went in to see the Nexus 6, and I fell in love with it! I currently have the Droid MAXX, on the edge program. I would like to continue on that with the Nexus 6. Thanks in advance!

    You can get it now from Motorola with financing (you mentioned you were on edge) and just pop your Sim in.

    This is true, I was just on their web site and saw that option. Unfortunately, the model I want is out of stock, of course!

    I saw on android police that you would not be able to use the Motorola store version the nexus 6 on Verizon? Is that true?

    As long as you already have service with Verizon you should have little trouble activating a Nexus from Motorola or T Mobile. It's when you are a new customer that things get tricky. As long as you have an active nano sim you can just pop it right in.

    I would need to cut my sim, cuz I only have my Sim from the galaxy s3. What about what I heard about Verizon only having a certain amount of imei numbers or something, like the nexus 7lte? And not activating certain numbers above or below Verizon's set list? I assume that is not true, etc? And even t mobile nexus 6 works here? Wow.

    Any of you ever cut your Sim? Safe enough?

    I had a VZW Gnex with a micro sim and used a sim cutter to cut down to a nano sim. I popped it into my N6 and works flawlessly. I bought mine from Moto but have unlimited data with VZW so I'm keeping that as long as I can.

    I also have a nano sim that I was able to get VZW to send me but in order to activate it the IMEI number needs to be in their system. But once they start selling the N6 they should have the IMEIs of the Moto & Google phones as well.

    I am currently checking the Motorola store and play store constantly for a white nexus 6. Does anybody know what time the play store updates their stock on Wednesdays?

    And do I have to worry about that volte not coming to a nexus 6 on Verizon ? Can't I just root it and add whatever custom software that Verizon added, etc?

    I've pretty much have always been on VZW so I've never had simultaneous voice & data like GSM phones.

    However, regarding VoLTE, I'm sure an N6 bought from Verizon will receive the update but it's still unclear if a Moto/GPS N6 on Verizon will get it.

    Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of. And who knows how long it will take to come out on Verizon, if ever?

    I have a galaxy s 3, and I believe i have simultaneous voice and data now. It's handy, to say the least.

    Decisions, decisions...

    Are you currently on Verizon? If so, how do you have simultaneous voice & data? For CDMA carriers (Verizon and Sprint) you can only have it when you're connected to WiFi.

    I am on Verizon... I don't have simultaneous voice and data? Let me check...

    Yeah. I just called 611 on my Verizon galaxy s3 and logged onto clash of clans.

    I think the Verizon s3 has a CDMA chip and lte

    Verizon, has sent out an updates to several phones, (MAXX and Turbo) that I know of so far, maybe a few others. The update enabled VoLTE, that allows you to have simultaneous voice and data over LTE. Also known as, "Advanced Calling 1."

    And the only way that we could get both voice and data on Verizon would be with such a similar update, correct?

    Yes, I believe so, unfortunately. It's something that they have to "turn on" on their end, then send an update to the phone.

    Hm. Confusing what to do at this point if you're a Verizon customer.

    Just talked to a customer service Rep, he could only say that to check back around the 1st for a nexus 6 phone, and also that any 4g capable phone would be able to reap the benefits of volte. Regardless of where it was bought. Take a grain of salt.

    If it helps, coming from a Droid Turbo owner who just went through this, the VoLTE update has 2 main parts with different requirements:

    The simultaneous voice/data feature only requires you to: be a monthly-paying VZW customer, be within VZW's 4g range, and have "Advanced Calling" (what they call VoLTE) enabled. To enable it, you have to: download/install the update, enable the feature "HD Voice" in your account, reboot, and turn it 'on' under settings.

    The Advanced Calling phone features (HD and video calling, and 6-way conference calls) require the above, PLUS the other phone has to be compatible (meaning hardware capable + update/feature installed/enabled as stated above), which as of this moment are: Droid Maxx/Mini, Droid Turbo, G2, G3, Galaxy S5, iPhone 6/6+. Obviously, this list should be growing soon and will include the Nexus 6 among others. And, note that not all features may work with every compatible phone; for example, video calling doesn't work on the iphones (probably bc Apple shut that down due to Facetime) - if anyone cares (I don't).

    As an aside, for the Droid Turbo VoLTE update, Motorola threw in several improvements and fixes, which was nice. But it's a VZW-exclusive phone, so I don't know if the Nexus 6 would receive some as well.

    Fyi, here's VZW's VoLTE page for more info, plus links to an actually helpful FAQ and a list of compatible phones:

    So according to that page even the Moto X doesn't have VoLTE. I guess I'm not sweating this as much knowing that.

    ^^ Yeah, definitely don't sweat it, you guys will be up sooner rather than later. Besides, I think I would've rather had Lollipop first over VoLTE. They probably just got this update to us poor saps with the Droid Turbo because they felt sorry that we've been left behind on all significant updates up until now, whilst slowly wasting away as Verizon slaves, grasping for any sip of water... or something like that.
