    I got my Galaxy Nexus last night and in the few hours I have been able to use it I love it. Android 4.0 is amazing, the device is SUPER fast, and 4G LTE is blazing (when I am in 4G Areas).

    If you can get this phone....DO IT

    No blinking led with screen on. I would need a custom ROM!

    Waiting to see Droid 4...

    If your screen is on why would you need an LED to tell you something came in?

    Being new to the Android world I found this Apple Insider article about how Verizon is soaking the high end Android buyer to subsidize the iToys very interesting.
    This may be old news to the rest of you....

    Hopefully you didn't have to pay the inflated price Scott....

    I can see that, Apple makes you pay a crazy amount up front.

    PS...just unlocked the bootloader on the Nexus...next top...rooting

    Are you seriously asking me this? Lol! I have ranted about this for 2 years. Had ability in 2.0.1 Google thought it would save battery to remove it, so they removed it. Most custom ROM's put it back. All but MIUI.

    As to why: when phone is docked, it goes to dock/clock mode. NO STATUS BAR. If I have a message, I wouldn't know it, unless I had notification volume on, and I was in the room to hear it, I would have to stop and check for messages every 10 minutes, especially with 3 kids, one of whom is 400 miles away.

    Ever watch a video in full screen? No notification bar! GPS in car dock? Night table dock? I like to look at screen, see the time, and a flashing light if I have a message/missed call/voice message or email!

    With the way Nexus is currently set up (stock), if docked, or watching video/playing game/anything in full screen mode, I will not know if message is there unless you tap phone to wake screen from clock mode, physically exit dock mode, go to home screen & see if there is anything in notification bar.

    Phone is capable, OS is not, which is why I would need CM or another CM based ROM.

    Aren't you glad you asked??

    I hear you Sherri, but IMO not a big enough reason for me to pass up this phone.

    Lol, Stevetaz! Coming from a Blackberry, you may miss this feature.

    And Scott, just wait! When you have 3 teenagers who don't know what a "phone call" is, you will rely on the notification lights!

    While Bari is away, she can't always talk. Roommate may be studying or sleeping. I like to know she can always reach my but text. Phone is docked, clock mode is on. Blinking led will wake me if she needs me.
