    Default Switching from GS3 on AT&T

    This will be my first unlocked device from Google. I'm just sick of waiting for the Android updates from Google and want the pure Android experience. No LTE doesn't bother me at all. Will the Nexus 4 be able to use Google applications like Wallet even though my service is through AT&T under contract or will I still be blocked by the carrier? And do the Google updates get sent OTA? Anything else would be appreciated, first time unlocked device. If I still can't get a pure Google experience because of my contract I might wait til it ends and pick up the new Nexus phone in the future.

    Thanks

    Also, can I buy this phone from Tmobile instead of the Google Play store and still have it completely unlocked ?

    Yes, but not for the same price. 199$ with 2 year classic plan or 499$ value plan.

    Wallet will be pre-loaded, surely. AT&T can't control that.

    And do the Google updates get sent OTA?
    Yes, they're sent OTA and AT&T doesn't have anything to do with them.

    T-Mobile will be selling the device unlocked, yes, but it will cost $499.

    Buy it from Google Play.

    Thank you Very helpful Currently with my GS3 I am able to download Google Wallet but it won't run. I won't have this issue with the Nexus 4?

    My understanding is that Google Wallet is pre-loaded as it is on the takju Galaxy Nexus.
