    Wait - so is it true that the ideal first thing to do would be to at least unlock the phone, because it'll wipe everything on internal SD? I unlocked and rooted my NS4G, but that was so long ago that I don't even remember. From what I recall, best is to unlock at a minimum when you first get the phone b/c there won't be anything on the SD, and that you can decide then or later to root because rooting won't wipe the internal SD. Is this right?

    I have no idea what your talking about.


    Probably look at some porn. More serious of an answer.. I will play around with the camera and apps then put my sim into it.

    That is correct. Unlocking wipes everything for security and then you can root later if you choose to and that will not wipe anything

    Unlock bootloader, pull and unpack boot partition, adjust a few things, make Internet crap themselves with amazingly high and unrealistic benchmark scores.
    Then put it all back so it runs better

    Open the box
    Take all stickers of the N4
    Power on N4
    Inspect device
    Login Account

    If the N4 is in perfection out the box and software is running smoothing then...

    Clean the device
    Place Screen Protectors on front and back
    Connect my Nexus 4 to Nexus 7 through bluetooth so I can recieve my text messages on my N7.
    Admire my Nexus 4 for bit then place on charger and go back to my N7
    I will relish in the fact I have an N4 while on my N7 excited use my phone when I leave my house.
    I use case for my N4 at work and use a leather pouch everywhere else.

    Sounds pretty good, but not sure we are gonna find front and back screen protectors, back decals, or cases right away. Wouldn't we have seen some already?

    Who said I was getting Nexus 4 any time soon?
    I am going to wait to get my Nexus 4 after being first to pre-order a Nexus 7. I also holding out for possibility of getting a white version. I believe the cases will take a month or so for Nexus 4 but screen protectors may be sooner.

    Open the box, turn it on and not put any details first. Test out wifi, camera, etc. When satisfied, will unlock bootloader then go through the start up process.

    Well, if you ever want to flash a custom ROM on your phone, then the first step is to "unlock" the bootloader so that you can thereafter "root" your phone. What I was confirming is that by "unlocking" your phone, you end up having to wipe your entire internal SD; meaning, it's best to do it initially before you fill up that entire internal SD with data, pictures, music, and other files that you would have to backup somewhere because they'd be lost by "unlocking" the bootloader. If you do it from the get-go, before you install all of those files, you won't have to worry about backing up and reinstalling all of those files later. Eventually if you root your phone, the rooting process won't wipe your internal SD, so you don't have to sweat losing anything or having to back that stuff up and then reinstalling again.

    The ROMs ive flashed with my Vibrant, the ROMs themselves did all that. I didnt have to unlock any bootloaders myself. In fact the ROMs rooted the phone as well from flashing it. It was all so simple and within the ROMs i used. I take it not all are like that but i havent done it in some months now. Or maybe it was the clockwork recovery in ROM manager that did that prior too. I forget but i did not unlock any bootloaders manually myself.

    I have not flashed a ROM or rooted my GS3 as of yet.

    Inspect for defects in case I have to get an RMA for a replacement. Had to do this once with my Galaxy Nexus and once with my Nexus 7. Thankfully Google is very good about exchanges - they let you keep the device while they two-day ship you a replacement.

    I'm just going to re-use my answer to the question here in May 2010 about what the first thing I was going to do my new HTC EVO 4G?

    Find the nearest iPhone user, shove it in their face and scream, "WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW?!?!?!?"
