    Okay, so I got everything ready. I spoke with Google, and spoke with t-mobile.

    I called google, and if you live in the Missouri area, the s&h should be around $13-$14.
    If you need a micro sim, don't worry about buying a cutter that you're going to use probably once, just call the number 1-877-453-1304, go through the choices till you get to the rep, and ask about a new micro sim. There's a special going on for a micro sim for only $0.99 and free shipping. Comes out to $1.07. You can activate it with a monthly t-mobile 4G plan for only $30 + some change.

    The plan includes the following:
    100 minutes of talk (I'm not a big talker, so I don't care)
    Unlimited texting
    Unlimited data(5GB's of '4G' then throttled to 3G)

    Overall, this Phone, sim card, and $30 A month '4G' plan will cost around $350. If you have that...You're set.

    Also, The Google rep told me that I should open play.google.com around 11:55, then spam F5 around 11:59 and have all your information ready to copy/pasta.

    Just a few tips to help you get one of the first Nexus 4's.

    Sweet thanks for the info. I'm looking forward to taking advantage of that plan as well.

    Was that 11:59 am or PM on Nov 12 or 13? Do you know which timezone?

    Going to be very annoyed if Google opens up sales at 3AM and end up selling out to west coasters by the time I wake up.

    For those with an existing contract with T-Mobile, would I still need to pay an activation fee to active the new SIM card?
    (I'm not familiar with T-Mobile's normal policies)

    I'm really excited about this phone, Im putting my 9900 BB up for sale just to get it.
    So just to summarize.
    $349 for the 16gb.
    $15 roughly for shipping. (Im in California, so who knows what it will be for us)
    $1+$30 for new SIM/Activation.
    So basically 400 bucks all said and done, yes?

    So if I am switching from Verizon and keep my same old cell phone number and want to get it ported... will this method affect the way I do things?
    Thanks.

    Once you get the sim, you can call the number again and they can port the number for you.

    but remember, if you use Google Voice for just voicemail on another number besides your GV number, you can only go to a carrier that supports Conditional Call Forwarding, or else it won't work. T-Mobile prepaid does not support that.

    Um, do you see the BIG 'Web Exclusive' box on the right side saying $30 per month?!? LOL...

    I do see where you/someone can get confused on HOW you actually order/add it to your cart. You CANNOT until you activate your SIM card. I spoke to TMobile, as when I ordered my micro-SIM card activation kit this past Sunday (arrived today!), I couldn't find where on the website to actually select/add the $30 Web exclusive plan to my cart too, just to get a head start. The customer service rep said that when I received my Nexus 4 and pop in the micro-SIM, go back online to TMobile and click the 'Activate SIM' link and there you will choose the online $30 prepaid plan.

    Hope this helps everyone! I CAN'T WAIT!! Arrgggg, one more week

    Your attachment cannot be seen, says it's "invalid", so I cannot speak to what your seeing. The original link provided by the other poster clearly shows on the webpage in big letters the $30 plan. LOL, then the associate from TMO was lying to you, as you can CLEARLY see on TMobile's site, the $30 plan. Whatever...

    Does Tmobile offer any insurance for the Nexus 4? Or would Square Trade be a better option?

    I find that i get better coverage on the roads and highways on at&t. Tmobile switches to 2g so very often >.<
    But that $30 plan is enticing!

    I just notice that you must have a new Sim Card and activation kit (is already ordered).......I have a prepaid and I wanted to change over to this plan in 10 days.......But this is a NO GO. You must start clean and do everything from the beginning, that is why I don't see that option as I state before.

    Ok, so now that makes sense. I was wondering if you already had an account/plan with TMobile, because the $30 Web special is clearly on their website. But if your wanting to switch to the $30 Web special plan, then it's time to lose everything and start over unfortunately.

    Got my MicroSIM & activation kit yesterday so now just a waiting game till next Tuesday at 12:00:01 sec AM.... LOL... CAN"T FRIGGIN WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!
