    Default TRICK: Here's how to get that Nexus 4 from the PlayStore...

    After I was finally able to get the N4's into my shopping cart, I couldn't get past the

    "Due to high demand, your order could not be processed. Please try again later." error..

    Found the solution on XDA:

    "You need to tab to the proceed button. In Chrome, the active control/button/link is highlighted with a yellow border. Just tab until you see the proceed button highlighted. Once you see that it is highlighted, the Enter key on your keyboard will function as a click of the mouse. Holding it down will function as a SPAM of clicks. LOL."

    I put a 3 hole punch on the enter key and in less than 5 minutes the Google Wallet window popped up ...

    Yeah !!

    but the "process" button turns grey after the first click and doesn't function anymore?

    I just posted how I did it and I use Firefox. I just clicked my quantity and then pressed the enter key and then the payment info box came up. Entered all my info and the purchase was confirmed.

    I thought the same thing.... doesn't matter... (I literally asked the same question over in the XDA thread: )

    got mine in less than 5 minutes after putting the 3-hole punch on the enter button even though it was gray...

    just do what the OP said, many have confirmed that it works. It's good. Even if it's grayed out, you can still TAB to it to highlight the button. I got one doing this.

    Hahahaha THAT ACTUALLY WORKS.

    I literally held down the "Enter" key for 15 seconds, now I'm in.

    Now what key do people hold down to prevent having to wait for two weeks for their phones to ship?

    I tried the same thing, but it took me much longer than it took most people posting here. Took me an hour or two. I didn't constantly hold the button down though, but it sounds like that might have gone faster.

    I opened the developer console in Chrome so I could keep track of how many total requests I sent to Google. Somewhere north of 30,000 I finally got through.

    I felt bad spamming the Google servers, but apparently that's the only way to get through at the moment.

    I tried three different times and after the third time of doing this method I can't believe this actually worked! I have an actual confirmation number and everything, now to wait for another email from Google, WOOO!! we should not have to resort to doing these kind of things though -___-
