    I'm thinking about getting the Nexus 5 mainly for the price and fastest android updates. I know the phone works without activation with a carrier (t-mobile, sprint, etc.) But without a carrier, will I still get the android updates straight from Google?

    You get it straight from Google no matter where you buy it. The nexus 5 at the Google play store or t-mobile /sprint you will get them as they are released

    The only phone that was the exception was the galaxy nexus on Verizon

    The GNex on sprint as well, though those eventually could be found on Google as well.

    I forgot that was not my sprint but that as well

    The updates come fine from Google over WiFi without a carrier.
