$700 is the price with shipping, plus I am on a family plan with 2 other lines. I don't own the plan.
Yes but even then it is scarce. also a $200-$300 contract is more affordable and more possible in my budget then waiting on back order for a month after paying $700 to Google or Motorola.

If you Google Nexus 6 at the this very moment and go to the Nexus 6 page, then click on buy now Verizon Wireless is the only company that has yet to unveil that it will be selling the Nexus 6. THE LARGEST phone company in the United States with THE LARGEST amount of coverage has not yet received the Google Flagship. I am up for a renewal on my contract and I have been for roughly a month now. My phone is 2 years old, the battery dies within 4 hours of being off the charger, if I open facebook and music and txt messages the phone will crash and the battery will drain. This phone is a replacement phone to phone with a broken button. Is Verizon going to offer the Nexus 6 with contract (I cannot buy off of the store becasue they are out of stock and I cannot afford it without a contract) or should I try and make the switch to another phone company in hopes that they provide customer service and quality phones to purchase? Granted I am in college and on my folk's contract and if I were to switch to a new phone carrier I would be paying out of pocket. I know this sounds like a rant, but some part of me feels like if they see enough customers unhappy they might wake that one guy up that is supposed to press the button and start the line of Nexus 6 VZW phone models.

I think Google, Motorola, and Lenovo would be better off if they split the difference three ways to re-open the plant temporarily. Their customers would be happy, they would each get a reasonable level of profit. I imagine the logistics are much more complex than a community forum conversation, but if the point is profit, then customer satisfaction, working together would be a win win win for each company.

I agree that hindsight is 20/20 but then scenario doesn't seem likely that Google and Motorola would unveil the next Moto X, The Droid Turbo, and the Nexus 6 all within a short window and say "our largest plant got shut down? no problem, we can run three devices productions on something 1/4 the size of our previously overworked plant." If that is the scenario that went down, someone needs to look at re-adjusting management with their production sector. To make three new phones on the market and then make them scarce to hype their sale is one thing (baking the sales), but to the point of frustration will overall lower the amount of demand or consumers will simply buy another product and remove themselves from the market. I would agree this is more a logistical stumble rather than economic strategy.

But what is the purpose of the first three carriers? Why do they have the hold before VZW? Google and Verizon are almost inseparable considering the number of sales that come out of Verizon are Google owned phones, many of them being Motorola. It has to be more than inventory because it is THE Google flagship. Motorola Mobility is a company owned by Google (and under negotiation to be given to Lenovo). I find it VERY unlikely that the team that did numbers on the Nexus 6 sales projections were this far off on the number of what their production can actually produce. Maybe they are pulling a One Plus One exclusive campaign, although elitist, effective in profit/production turnover. And certainly inventory might be an issue because Google has not seen this much hype over one of their products in the past few generations of phones, But Google is a tech giant. I find it hard to think of a tech giant fail solely on production.
I see where you are coming from, but don't unveil the phone if you can't produce enough of them and promise carriers, and if was purely an inventory then Google wouldn't give it to some carriers ... Ver más...
I see where you are coming from, but don't unveil the phone if you can't produce enough of them and promise carriers, and if was purely an inventory then Google wouldn't give it to some carriers if they are expecting it to be a flagship that will sell out quickly.

The Nexus 6 has been revealed to be carried by VZW, but every single phone that is sold with a contract at a VZW store requires a sort of "check point" test before being considered a phone worthy of the character. That checkpoint test, looks at how the specs stack up in their service ecosystem. If you have ever seen a video of a benchmark test or review for any phone, it is like that, but only meeting the standards the company has set for devices it has allowed. The Nexus 6, being the first Lollipop OS device, is probably hurdling through multiple tests that VZW is putting it through so that customer satisfaction will be at the highest point it can be. With that being said, many users that bought unlocked versions of the phone are already pleased with the performance of the device, so it is a question as to why they are dragging their feet. Today is Black Friday for 2014, and that is a large amount of sales that they could have made, but failed to do so. Now we can only hope Cyber Monday will yield something for this device and VZW. We know from the Nexus 6 site that every queue that has opened when a new shipment of devices has been produced has sold out almost instantly, so I doubt that VZW is questioning the ability for the Nexus 6 to be a lucrative endeavor. NOW there could be a problem on Motorola and Google's end. They could have made a bid system between the US carriers and said "the first three to give this much will get the first month of devices" (kind of like an invite system with the One Plus One) and VZW just wasn't quick enough. The other possibility is that app developers for VZW bloatware are hitting hiccups with Android 5.0 because their apps, regardless of the OS, function as they are from Android 1.0. I have an iPhone 5 and it is like taking a trip down memory lane because their buttons and loading bars from pre-iOS7. I know this information because I read a LOT of articles on devices, and carriers and if I didn't have passions elsewhere, I would probably be a tech-journalist. I am at least a tech-head. I also say this because I am in the same boat as you are RespectableJoe, I too am waiting for VZW to offer a plan with this device because I am tired of my faulty iPhone 5 dying at 80% because a battery malfunction (and this phone is my replacement to a previously faulty iPhone 5). I wish the best of luck to you and for all of our sake VZW will put this phone on contract before the Holiday Season is over. I know I would like to unwrap a Nexus 6 at some point in 2014.
I might be wrong on this but if you put a non VZW phone onto a VZW contract there is a fee of $30-$40 dollars. This on top of the $649 which will round out to $665 or $670 with tax. If VZW had a ... Ver más...
I might be wrong on this but if you put a non VZW phone onto a VZW contract there is a fee of $30-$40 dollars. This on top of the $649 which will round out to $665 or $670 with tax. If VZW had a 2 year contract with the Nexus 6 it would be $200 instead of almost $700. My issue is that my current device is a faulty iPhone 5 and it is a replacement to what was an already faulty iPhone 5. I am on a budget and would gladly pay for a contract, because that is something I can afford. My Phone currently dies anywhere from 80%-1% of battery life. Maybe I am wrong about unlocked phone fees, but I am still looking at $500 I do not have.
I would love to drop that kind of money, but with the activation fee on top of the retail price, I don't have the budget to afford that price. Thank you for your help though.

Hello VZW Community, It is November, and my contract is up for renewal. I have a replacement iPhone 5 because my other iPh5 had a broken button and the factory battery malfunction. Well, the factory battery malfunction exists in the replacement as well and with the contract renewal open I thought why not get a new phone. So here are my wants: 0. OnePlus One (impossible because GSM devices don't work on VZW CDMA) 1. Nexus 6 (it is a Nexus, and the whitelist process will take longer than 3 months or until February for the Nexus to hit data plans in VZW) 2. Xperia Z3 (VZW offers the Z3v which really a Z2 variant as indicated by the kit kat Easter egg) 3. Galaxy S5 (will be obsolete by January 2015 with Samsung's new marketing tactic to try and unveil a new phone every other business quarter) this post is mainly for help, but it is also out of frustration. I hold no device brand loyalty and would just like to make the switch over to android, but the Nexus 6 is the preferred phone of my choosing and VZW is dragging their feet on what could be a very lucrative product for them. I'm like fry (Shut up and take my money!) I'm tired of my iPhone 5 dying at 80% and getting a 2nd replacement seems pointless because the week I do that they will unveil the Nexus 6 with a VZW contract. To both the VZW Community, and the Customer support I'm simply asking, what is my best course of action? I am on a contract based budget. thank you for reading this and I hope you have a happy thanksgiving,
