    Default Galaxy Nexus on T-Mobile?

    This link is for GSM unlocked, as it says correct?

    Preorder the Galaxy Nexus, aka Nexus Prime for $690 from Negri Electronics |


    ...and Tmo's 4g bands are 1700 and 2100 so this would work on their HSPA+ correct?


    Anyones guess as to how much earlier if at all it would come out before Tmobile's.

    Thanks So Much

    Is that a trustworthy site?

    Samsung website shows registering for updates on all the major carriers.

    So I think sooner or later every carrier will see the Nexus in some form. Question now is who is first and when?

    Samsung.com – Sign up to get the latest on Galaxy Nexus.

    I believe it will be released in 2011 by all major carriers. I think the exclusivity that Verizon is getting is the LTE network. I think ATT will be 4G only and TMO will be there HSPA+ network. So basically Verizon is getting the upper hand on the release because they have the fastest speed (HSPA+ is still extremely fast) but we'll all see this phone release before Christmas. Google won't miss out on that spending frenzy.

    I still suspect that Verizon will get a 2012 U.S. exclusivity, with the GNex launching on all other major networks in the U.S. in Q1 2012. Partially because that would be the only way to get a major Verizon marketing push, and partially because Samsung will still need to ramp up production, and they clearly intend to launch in lots of other international markets at the same time. So I'd look for announcements on the other networks right after Xmas.

    I agree with all the other carriers getting it Q1 of 2012. But I also think when it comes out on the other carriers there will be some minor differences. Maybe faster processor or more storage. Something a little different kind of like what they did with the SII this year.

    Eric -
    Thanks for the heads-up on Negri Electronics. They are legit as I just got off the phone (888 358-6358) with them and yes, they said $689.50 was the retail priceing on the phone, with no taxes and free ground shipping. I did some interweb digging and If you apply coupon code 20offsbhk you'll get $20 off the price and get it down to $669.50. But that's the first priceing I've seen for the unlocked version and I would be patient and wait as you may be able to find it cheaper somewhere else.

    That seems likely. It not only allows for some differentiation, but also allows them to manage parts costs by looking at what is available when they are making decisions for each carrier.

    Well, if you search eBay and other websites you'll see that there is already a sim unlocked version for sale so I don't see why it would be released any different. There Nexus S dropped for T-Mo in Nov of last year and there was a lot of feedback that it wasn't available to anyone else. It took months before AT&T got their version and the only change was when Sprint got the Nexus S and they added the 4G antenna.

    Thats why I think they'll drop everything they can before Christmas and Verizon will get the LTE version and AT&T, T-Mo & Sprint will get 4G & HSPA+ versions. It only seems logical. Google isn't going to make 4 or 5 different versions. They'll make the same device with different antenna's and thats it.

    Heres the important question...

    Do I return my Samsung Galaxy S II and wait for the Nexus? I got the Sensation and the day after I got it I heard Tmob was getting the Galaxy S II.. Now that I got the Galaxy S II, the Nexus is coming... my god its a never ending cycle.. Will the Nexus be that much better then the Galaxy S II? Hardware wise the Galaxy S II looks better but who knows

    You really should make up your own mind about this phone, but in my opinion, this isn't worth waiting for if you are already enjoying your SGS2. It seems like it basically is an SGS2 with "pure Google"

    Except that the Nexus has an HD screen. That to me makes a big difference.

    Skip to bottom for the real info:

    So I went to the Local T-mobile store because I wanted to do something that I have been helping AT&T customers with for months. I wanted to purchase a line for my grandmother. So i was going to get a 20 dollar prepaid Nokia. I was going to add it to my Post-paid account. With AT&T if you purchase your own equipment with post paid service they don't put you on a contract and you can upgrade at anytime to a new phone. Well at T-Mobile they start the contract if you activate service. Even if you use your own equipment. So my plan to activate the phone for my Grandmother then upgrade it to the galaxy nexus was shot. So then I told the guy I was waiting for the Galaxy Nexus. The employee searched for it on the T-mobile Intranet. A few seconds later he told me I should just get the Galaxy S II. He tried to push me to buy then, he told me that its a weaker Camera, and on T-Mobile I would be paying the more. As he said it the pricing will be similar to the Samsung Galaxy S II. I told him a nexus is a little bit better then a Touchwiz phone. He really started to get pushy so i left. My grandmother still does not have a phone.

    What i got from him is that phone is in T-mobiles system they have the specs just no pricing or release date info. They have some clues to whats going on. Taken with a grain of Salt


    P.S. I literally going to troll a T-mobile store today and try to get a picture of it.

    For me, I passed on the SG2, to wait for the Galaxy Nexus (looks/performance) from T-Mobile off contract, and if priced like the SG2 off contract hopefully would be ~ $529.00. The best price I got so far for an unlocked version GN was a pre-order price of $654.50.

    Default Re: Galaxy Nexus on T-Mobile?

    I think the going price for the 32GB GNex will be about $699.00 off contract. Since unusually phones fall to the $500-$599 price range I think we'll see a nice jump on the 32GB and around the norm for the 16GB. And again, I do believe that it will come unlocked on sim version. Thats just my thoughts.

    Where did you see that price. That is fantasticaly cheap. Cheapest I saw was 699 from Negri and there was a free shipping or another coupon somewhere

    But more importantly, anyone have a guess as to when it will come out?

    Default Re: Galaxy Nexus on T-Mobile?

    do you really think it is really "that much" better looking if at all. Pretty similar, minus the software and bigger screen. Which I do like

    But I do agree with Nerdy Werds. The Galaxy does have a few things on it, not the resolution or ICS, thats about it. But both cameras are as good or better don't u think

    I guess my point being...I am very impulsive. You would agree with most, not worth time or money to switch to Verizon to get first right?

    And if I sold my phone and have been using a 11 year old phone and it is killing me, and I have no problem unlocking and selling on ebay to get a phone in 6 months, then it isnt the biggest of losses to those of u that prefer the GN given those circumstances, is it?

    Thanks to all weighing in. I, I suppose like a lot of us, can get neurotic about it When When When LOL

    Actually it's $689.50 from Negri, but with $35 off coupon code: sb35offjkh it brings it down to $654.50, but I think they got rid of the free shipping if you combine with coupon. I didn't order it though because I still believe you'll be able to get it cheaper, as the TMO/SG2 was $529 off contract, so I'm hopeing for similar priceing. Besides, in looking at the fine print in Negri's store policies it says they reserve the right to increase price when the stock arrives.
    I've been sitting on the sidelines myself as well after extending my grandfathered TMO account in September and cashing out on the Blackberry Bold 9900 that I upgraded to for $50 and flipped for $550 - I'm hopeing for a wash, or close to it, on the GN.

    I wouldn't at all be surprised to see it launched for $529 or $549 unlocked in the USA. Looking at Euro prices you need to factor in things like VAT etc.. Don't look into the exchange rate or import costs too much. Prices are usually about the same in the US as they are in the UK and Europe.

    That's because they're making money off people who want to pay to pre-order. Then they have to pay to send it to you overseas.
