I am ready to order on 29th and when it arrives will switch nano sim from my Verizon Moto x, can't wait for Nexus 6...

Cool. Nice to have it officially dated. But you may want to change the minor typo in your title from 19th to 29th*. :)

It may have all bands but the jury is still out on wether Verizon can block an N6 not purchased thru them.

Us Verizon folk who want the device ASAP are really pretty boned, aren't we? Spending $650+ is a big gamble if the phone ends up not working on Verizon (well, I guess we could still return it and get refunded, but still), but if the past is any indication, preorders will probably go super quick and the device will be backordered on the Play Store within minutes.

The way I see it, and I've been spouting this in other threads, and perhaps it's just my own nonsense, but the way I see it, if Verizon weren't going to "play ball", so to speak, wouldn't Google have just continued skipping over them for Nexus phones? Google never pushed for Verizon to get the last two Nexus phones, so if Verizon were going to be problematic about it, why didn't Google just continue passing them over? I dunno. I want to be optimistic that I can order one from the Play Store on the 29th and be fine. To me, I just feel like Google had no reason to get this phone on Verizon if Verizon were just going to continue being a pain about it.

I doubt it, the fact that Google has inluded Verizon name/logo on the Nexus page and only 1 model on the Play store with all Network bands (including Verizon CDMA bands) makes me believe that the Play store model would work on Verizon without an issue.

I think Verizon is in agreement with Google/Motorola to allow Nexus 6 on their network. Probably they don't
want to miss the Nexus 6 on their network and loose many of their customers who are die hard Android
fans and for whom Nexus 6 is very appealing/enticing smart phone and would switch carriers.

Your last sentence says everything: "Google had no reason to get this phone on Verizon if Verizon were just going to continue being a pain about it"

It probably will be usable if you preorder thru google, but i don't see verizon anouncing until after the Droid Turbo release.

Which is the 28th, the day before the N6 is live

No way they would say anything the day after. They need to give their pride and joy Droid line time to sell.

I could see them letting people get it through Google but never making an official anouncement for clise to a month. They never really advertised the GNex. I walked into few stores that had nothing showing off the GNex.

I will be trying to keep my unlimited data while buying a subsidized phone from Verizon. Spending $50-$200 is a lot better than $650, and this phone is plenty good enough to last 2 years.

Quick, kind of off topic question.. Why would one buy the N6 from the play store for the full $650 when you can get a subsidized version from Verizon and its the EXACT same phone? Just doesn't make sense to me is all.

Yea I'm probably going to the Sprint store and get a subsidized N6...$650-700 is too steep for my checkbook this season.

One is carrier unlocked to start and the other is not. So no it is not "the exact same phone".

UDP, man UDP!
Or not be locked into a contract. If it's the same phone, you could take it to any carrier you like at any time.

I thought the phone had all the bands though? Since it does, couldn't you buy it on verizon, and essentially just leave the carrier but be forced to pay the remaining price of the phone?

Actually Verizon has all their phones unlocked. And Nexus is going to be boot loader unlocked anyway. Technically there is zero difference between Play Store and Verizon version, the only difference might be Verizon controlling activations via IMEI checks.

Yup you could...or you could serve out your contract and wait for it to expire.

With the new regs regarding unlocking phones I believe that is how it works

People who are buying it at retail are most likely using the phone on an off-contract plan, which are usually cheaper than their on-contract counterparts.
