    Im not the first to suggest it, but I figured I would start a thread for any and everyone who wants the GN to use their freedom of internet speech by tweeting @verizon to release the phone... may not do anything, but doesnt hurt to try and helps the days go by a little faster...lol

    So post on this thread if you plan to tweet verizon everyday until they release the Galaxy Nexus!

    p.s.... dont judge me lol

    I wouldn't mind as long as people keep it clean. We should all send tweets at the same time at the same hour to: @verizonwireless @vzwsupport @vzwnews

    What message should we send?

    I am in. Already started tonight. Verizon needs to get this phone out. Or I will definitely just buy it unlocked and use it on AT&T.

    Like the premise behind the idea but would recommend a mass tweet to provide the date of release. I'd be happy with that personally.

    I suggested #OccupyVerizon as joke a while back here, but doing it for real sounds good. Panda suggested that we #OccupyZVWstores since their warehouse will have the GNex in stock by the end of this week.

    We need uniformity on this or it will not work or be as impressive to them. I suggest that we tweet all of them "We Want GNex 11/10 - We Know You Have Them!". And just don't tweet it one time. Be relentless about it all day long tomorrow.

    Also, maybe do it on facebook and their website all day as well. I can call the Rep back who called me this morning to let her know that their customers know they have the item in stock and ready to sell, so if they don't give us the 11/10 release date by Friday, we will physically Occupy VZW stores this weekend. She may not have any authority, but I have have some tricks up my sleeve to get her to forward it up the ranks.


    Panda, can you ask your followers to do the same? And anyone who is also registered with AndroidForums ask them as well please. Let's be unified in this.


    NERD UP!

    Hmmm you guys make good points. I tweeted tonight as well. My tweet said
    @Verizon what is up with the delay of the Galaxy Nexus?? Give me my phone and take my money already.

    I like the idea of a mass tweet... maybe
    @Verizon I want the Galaxy Nexus. Release date? Price?

    What do you guys think?

    Cool so Operation occupy verizon commences now I guess lol

    Tweet something along the lines of
    @Verizon I want the Galaxy Nexus. Release date? Price? #OccupyVzW
    @Verizon We Want GNex 11/10 - We Know You Have Them #OccupyVzW

    Or we can use @verizonwireless. I looked it up ad both are the official twitter pages of Verizon. @Verizonwireless is for offers

    I vote once/day at noon:

    @VerizonWireless we want a release date for the #GalaxyNexus.

    Simple, to the point and everyone can remember the schedule. Do it on lunchbreak.

    some people that are in the AndIRC channel #gnexus have been doing the #occupyverizonwireless thing for a couple days now. I would just keep using that since it has already been started. Tweet it as much as possible and get as many people as possible to do it. We've basically just been tweeting @verizonwireless Galaxy Nexus release date please? #voccupyverizonwireless. If you're going to use that though please keep it clean.

    I completely agree. PLEASE KEEP ALL TWEETS CLEAN. Just makes us look better And sure we can use that as well. As long as a bunch of us do it they will hopefully notice and get the message

    Not direct enough. Too passive. They will have them in stock by next week for sure, so it's up to them when to sell them. If we tell them an actual date of 11/10, it will get the point across more effectively. We don't just want any release date, or they'll give us Dec 1st or something. We demand 11/10.

    I agree about keeping it clean. We need to keep it clean or else they won't listen, but that doesn't mean we have to be passive either.

    You guys are going to get the price raised.
    lmao I hope not. I just wan to let verizon know that the GN will sell and they need to release it ASAP. If they do raise the price... That would suck

    Hmmm good point. Yes we do have to be clean and aggressive just not too aggressive... I think placing a date within the tweet doesnt hurt. Doesnt come off as aggressive to me so I think itd be fine
