    Hi, I've just had to RMA my Nexus 4 after an OTA update caused it to be stuck in an unfixable boot loop. I have received a replacement phone, and am about to send my broken one back, however, the new phone they sent me didn't come with any accessories, e.g. charger and USB cable, it just came in a small, plain white box. My problem is that in the email I received says that I need to send all packaging and original accessories. However, that would leave me without a charger and OEM USB cable for it. So I am looking for some advice on what I should do about this, should I just send the handset back in the small white box the replacement came in?

    The E-Mail I received:

    Step 1: Order Your Replacement Device [Time-Sensitive]

    Please click through the link below within 24 hours of receiving this email to order your replacement device:

    You will need to order the replacement from your computer (it wont work from a mobile phone or tablet).

    You can email google and get confirmation before sending it back. I would imagine they won't need you to send those things back if they didn't send you new ones with the replacement.
