    Welcome!

    I just got the GN last week. Wish I knew it was coming stateside. That $399 price is awesome. And the takju build will be supported direct from Google with no reflashing needed.

    But even at the $500 I paid, the GN on t-mo is great. Getting 6 - 8 mbs with HSPA+.

    Thanks that's great. Btw I got my shipment notification from Google today in the morning at 1:40 am. So hopefully I will have it with me before the end of this week. Just waiting on the sim card from tmobile.
    Then it is goodbye contracts...

    Not a typo.. I am on monthly 4g. Just get your own phone order your sim card and select your phone.
    Seeing these rates your realize how much our carriers make from us when we are on contract ..

    The catches are:

    1) no roaming
    2) ty/nonexistant customer service
    3) prepaid (service shuts off if you don't pay by midnight of the 30th day)
    4) no free nights/weekends/mobile-to-mobile minutes. Get what you get.
    5) no conditional call forwarding
    6) have to disable T-Mo voicemail to use Google Voice voicemail natively (see #5)
    7) must bring your own device (aka full price $$$)

    That being said, I use T-Mobile prepaid ($30 5gb plan) and its pretty solid. But my biggest warning is this: know what you're getting into before signing up. The $30 plan is literally unbeatable if you don't need many minutes. The $60 and $70 plans can definitely be beaten by Straight Talk ($45) and Simple Mobile ($60 but more data). But if you just like going with the bigger company the $60 and $70 tiers are pretty solid. Knowing where the data throttle point is and knowing you can't be kicked off is good. Not all prepaid carriers offer the same benefit.

    Obvious pro's (to any prepaid carrier):
    1) PRICE
    2) no contract
    3) bring your own device
    4) unblocked tethering
    5) switch carriers/plans any time
    6) price, again. prices are amazing.

    It seems like you purchased the SIM card directly from t-mobile.com which is exactly what Im doing atm. Also waiting or it to arrive.

    Did you have any trouble activating the SIM card and picking the Walmart plan? If so, how did you go about fixing it?
