Rep: Hello. Thank you for visiting our chat service. May I help you with your order today?


Jack Bauer: Yes! I need a new phone, and am waiting on the release of the CDMA Nexus One for Verizon, or the HTC Incredible.


Jack Bauer: Would you happen to know the date?


Rep: I'd be happy to help you with that.


Rep: I do apologize but I have no way of accessing that information at this time. I do apologize for this.


Jack Bauer: For either phone?


Rep: We actually do not find out release dates any sooner than our customers so I do apologize for this.


Jack Bauer: You couldn't pull a Chloe O'Brian and hack the system?


Rep: I do apologize however I would not be able to do that and that is pretty funny.


Jack Bauer: Haha, do you watch 24?


Jack Bauer: Because I'm part of CTU, and I am going to leave the US and need a phone, and the Nexus One or the Incredible is what I need.
Rep: We are unable to hold personal conversations. I do apologize for this.


Rep: I do understand.


Jack Bauer: This is not personal, I need this phone.

Rep: I do understand however, I would be able to offer you one of our global devices.


Jack Bauer: Nexus One?!


Rep: I am unable to offer you this phone at this time, because we do not offer it in our lineup at this time. I do apologize.


Jack Bauer: I do apologize that you keep apologizing.


Rep: I could send you a link so that you could view our global ready phones if you would like.


Jack Bauer: Yes, there is something else you can help me with, are there any new Android Devices coming out?


Jack Bauer: Soon?


Jack Bauer: Sure, I shall see.


Jack Bauer: I'd love that link if you wouldn't mind sending it to me


Rep: Ok I will actually have to send you several links as we have several different global devices is that ok?


Jack Bauer: Sure


Rep: I actually have no way to know if we will be getting any new Android phones.


Jack Bauer: I seriously think you could find out one way or another...


Jack Bauer: Legally, Illegally....


Rep: I am unable to access this information I do apologize.


Jack Bauer: Apologize Denied.


Rep: I would be happy to assist you with any other questions you may have.

Jack Bauer: Other than my Android Obsession?

Rep: Please hold on while I check that information.

Jack Bauer: Had


Jack Bauer: Also had the Pearl 8230...bad choice


Rep: You are wanting a smartphone correct?


Jack Bauer: Screen went out, and the only way to get it to work again was to hit it hard, or flip it open and closed really fast...


Jack Bauer: Yes.


Rep: Oh no.


Jack Bauer: Then it snapped in half...


Rep: Please hold on while I check that information.


Rep: Sorry about that.


Rep: Please hold on while I check that information.


Jack Bauer: So I threw it at the NSA...

Rep: Do you not want a Blackberry period?


Jack Bauer: Eh, anything is fine really...


Jack Bauer: Not a flip phone...meaning anything but that pearl

Jack Bauer: Had the Original...


Rep: Please hold on while I check that information.


Rep: I do apologize that is the only smartphones we offer that are global ready unless you wanted a netbook.


Jack Bauer: OR a Nexus One?



Rep: Sorry no Nexus 1 available at this time.


Jack Bauer: ah HA! At this time..


Jack Bauer: Well, that's obvious...


Jack Bauer: Can you tell me if it will be in store?


Rep: I would not be able to tell you that at this time either. I do apologize.


Jack Bauer: That's Debatable...


Jack Bauer: But do you know?


Rep: I have no way of providing you with this information. I am sorry.


Jack Bauer: You didn't answer my question though. Do YOU personally know the answer?



Jack Bauer: Thanks for not saying "Apologize" ... Starting to get a bit old...


Rep: At this time I do not know when it will be released.



Jack Bauer: That's really debatable...

Dude I was laughing out loud reading that transcript. Thank you for the laugh that was absolutely hilarious. Well done.

By the way, how do you chat with a verizon rep like that? I can't figure it out.

Act like you're setting up a new plan, choose a phone, and sometime a box will show up between steps, or before checkout, and then it says, "Would you like to chat with a Verizon Wireless Rep?" and just say yes.. gives you a good laugh haha..specially if you get someone with a INCREDIBLE SENSE of humor...

(pun intended...HTC Incredible has the Sense UI for you slow people...)

I asked the same questions yesterday and got the same "i dunno" response. I also called the local verizon store and the guy there said its probably not going to be anytime soon as they've not even received training material on them yet. So i'm not holding my breath for this month. My guess is sometime mid next month. I have no proof but from what i've seen online i don't get any indication its going to be anytime soon. In fact i get the feeling it is still weeks away, maybe a month or longer.
