    Thanks. I just wanted to let people know that there may still be some available. I say "may", because even though my bank account has been deducted for $387+ and my Google Wallet order reflects a Nexus 4, I have yet to receive a confirmation e-mail.

    This is good news to hear. US or UK? I've installed page monitor on chrome so I'm hoping it'll tell me if/when they're available (I'm UK based)

    That's exactly what I did, but I think the timing must have been perfect, because I only clicked on the 16G one time...

    Been hitting refresh for the past hour non-stop on both the 16 and 8 GB models pages. Finally snagged a 16 GB model at 3:34 PM.

    Nexus 4 (16 GB) $349.00
    2 day Shipping $ 13.99
    Tax $ 21.78

    Total Purchase: $384.77

    Went through Google Wallet without a hitch this time unlike this mornings attempts. Shows funds already processed in my online banking statement.

    I think maybe Google is realeasing these in small batches to keep their servers up for check out.

    I wanted an 8 GB but am happy with the 16 too.

    I got mine at 3:34pm as well. As for why, here is my recent post from Google+ (I am +Matthew Foran if anyone cares)...

    "Google Play is interestingly enough still occasionally letting people order the Nexus 4. My guess, is they sold out of their "stock". But with the servers getting hammered, many of the orders filling that stock are probably duplicates. Especially with multiple phone orders getting duplicated. (I.e., ordered 3 phones and got 5 orders because of server issues). So then as they introduce those phones back into the pool, and people have an F5 click race to order one."

    I also just purchased mine at 3:38pm EST

    I hit the refresh for about 20 minutes. I had numerous failed purchases then it went through finally =)

    Well I've got my fingers crossed. I even wrote a greasemonkey script that refreshes every 1 second if the "Notify Me" button is on the page, and alerts me if it isn't. It's been running for a while, tho.

    edit: I just modified it to automatically add to cart. Hopefully it works.

    And we wonder why the Google servers had trouble keeping up!

    Not sure I am willing to spend my day hitting refresh to fix Google's mistakes.
    Google promised one thing - that this phone would go on sale today. If you expected anything else, you made it up in your mind.

    Yep, as soon as LG notify Google that they've fed the hamster to spin the wheel and manufacture another Nexus 4, Google put it up for sale on the site, then close it off once someone snaps it up.
    nickacs and Weishaupt like this.

    A google rep told me to check on the hour, and guess what. I caught a wild 16 gig one at 1:06 est!!! I was clicking back between 8 and 16 over and over until the 16 gave me the add to cart button.

    I talked to my wife and we decided to get our 13 year-old triplets N4's. It took me about 12 minutes of concentrated effort to get all three, but I got three 8G phones. I'm officially done after 2 16G and 3 8G phones...

    Something's seriously going on... Everybody seems to be having such an easy time with the refresh trick, and I've been trying for at least a couple hours now.

    I think they are having server issues which are preventing orders to be placed. I placed my order for a 16GB model at 3:38PM EST after hitting refresh for about 20 minutes.

    Yep, everybody pinging the site all over the world thousands of times a second is bogging it down.
