    Just a quick semi-unrelated question. I'm currently with Tel us, and plan to stay with the, at least for the time being. My current phone is using a regular tell us hspa+ sim card, and I understand the nexus 4 uses a micro sim or nano sim?? So I obviously need to get a new sim card. My question is, I've read a lot about ppl activating the LTE chip inside the phone and using it with LTE. I'm guessingyou need a LTE sim to do this? Has anyone who has already received their phone done this, and if so is it worth it? Pros/Cons?

    I think I read that Brad did this with his, perhaps he can answer my question.

    Cheers,

    I don't have my Nexus 4 yet, but yes you need a micro LTE sim card for the LTE to work. I've seen some videos where people reached over 20 mb/s. Looks like it's worth it.

    Depends on which phone you have. I currently have an iPhone 4 and it uses the same sized micro-sim BUT you need a v3 sim to utilize LTE (I talked to someone at the Telus store as well as confirming with a Telus CSR).

    I love that we are like crack heads waiting for our dealer to show up... where are you, how far is that from me, can you get here earlier?? Lol

    As has been stated before, I hope this phone is amazing because I'm way too obsessed if it isn't.

    WTF?!?!? According to Packagemapping, mine is still idiling in Winterpeg when I think it should be in the same truck as yours.
    Perhaps it is slow in updating. Mine says it left Winnipeg at 10:30 last night. I must be in Calgary by now. Calgarians are slow but not that slow. ;-)

    Yes they will (I bought one over the lunch hour in anticipation of getting the N4 soon). Just told them a story of buying an unlocked LTE capable phone and need a new sim card that can get onto LTE. Cost was $10 plus tax. I also confirmed that I can switch back and forth between the N4 and iPhone 4 with the new v3 sim and they said no problem.

    Did you have a "Location scan" around 10:19 PM in Winnipeg as well before departure?

    When was your delivery scheduled for?
    It was scheduled for delivery by end of day tomorrow (Jan 4th). Because no signature was required, the driver left it between the storm door and main door of my house. The status in UPS went from "Destination Scan" to:

    Winnipeg, MB, Canada 01/03/2013 12:54 Package was driver released

    Man..this phone is absolutely stunning. Feels far better in build quality than my Galaxy SII LTE. Now all I need is the LTE SIM. May have to wait until tomorrow for it.

    Shipped on 12/28. They seems to have sent out all of the 3-4 and some of the 6-7. Most of the 1-2 week orders shipped right at the end of the 2 weeks.

    My tracking has updated! Departure Scan from Windsor at 2pm. That should mean it's at the depot any time now and then out for delivery tomorrow. Usually UPS delivers to my neighbourhood at night, and I'm hoping that's the case tomorrow so it won't sit on the porch all day....in the freezing cold/snow.

    So basically the difference between batches is approximately 1-2 weeks?
