    Thumbs up Ordered 1, got 2?

    My friend ordered one 32GB Nexus 5 from the Play Store a couple weeks ago. His shipment came in last Wednesday. To his surprise, he actually had two packages from Google. Each containing a 32 Nexus 5. What should he do? Did he just get a free N5? He's only been charged once.

    Do the right thing! A good motto to live life by. Who knows, maybe Google will even reward him.

    Id probably sell it or give it to my Wife and sell her Windows phone since she has a Nexus 7.

    I'd phone Google or contact them telling them.

    Maybe they'll let you keep it for free? At worst they'll pay for the shipping back. At worst, once they track down you have an extra one they may just charge your CC twice.

    Contact Google and send it back. Like someone said maybe they will reward him with a Google Play gift card or something.

    Legally least in Australia you entitled to keep it if they don't contact you (from memory) but be a good bloke and contact them.

    yeah this is a situation where either way I wouldn't see anything wrong with the move. not a hugely costly mistake on their part. But if you are going to keep it. I would hold on to it for a while in case they realize their mistake. Otherwise yeah call them up, pay it forward.

    Plus 1 on reporting the double shipment to Google and returning it.

    I'm for the honest part, but you might want to examine both before returning one---just in case one has a problem. If you return a problem one, do let google know so they don't send it to someone else.

    That's a tough decision for you to make. I honestly don't know what i'd do if I were you in that situation. On one hand i'd like to think i'd be honest and not sell my integrity short for an extra phone. On the other hand, Google is so filthy rich that losing one Nexus 5 wouldn't be a huge hit for them. Especially considering THEY sent it to YOU and it's not like you walked out of a store with the intent to take something you didn't pay for.

    I however, do not think I could ever really enjoy my phone because i'd thik about that every time I used it. I think i'd send it back and consider it an investment for good karma.

    I don't believe it for a minute. It's a good "what if.." type of question but I seriously doubt there is any truth to it.

    I had this earlier in the year, ended up with 2 nexus 10s, was honest and got nothing. It actually felt like they would rather I'd said nothing as it caused them grief but once started it had to be completed.

    Be honest. You'll feel better. The fact that you even have to ask shows there is something nagging. If they don't appreciate your honest, then whatever. You do it for yourself, not for them...

    Your friend should just send it back.
    Besides the fact that IF looked into it will probably show 2 phones were sent to that address.

    I agree that he should call Google about this.

    Lots of good people. I would probably keep it for a few weeks, and if I was not charged I would just give it to a family member. If It had someone else's address on it, I would ship the phone to that person, but if they made a mistake and gave me two.....

    I agree that doing the right thing is good. I really do. ...but to Google that phone is ~ the equivalent of .0000000000000000000000000000001 cent to you and I. ...which is the only reason I'd not lose too much sleep. Further, now that you've told us, you've also told them.

    No company can legally charge you for a product you didn't order. In this case, it's their mistake, and the OP can be honest and return the product or be dishonest and knowingly keep something he shouldn't have gotten.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.
