    I am an at&t customer and I want to buy a Nexus S. What do I need to know about Negri before purchasing from there? I am new to this, but is there any potential drawbacks to using a nexus S on at&t service? Thanks in advance!

    Honestly man, I would wait a little bit longer and see if they make an official announcement from samsung or at&t. It might end up with more stuff like H+ or something. I have heard the updates don't make it to the version being sold on negri, but I am not for sure. Trust me though, I came so close to ordering one on wednesday but i figured i would wait it out a little longer since i saw the leaked page.

    There is nothing wrong with Negri Electronics, I got my White one from them last Friday and it works great. I also have a Square Trade warranty for it because it is not covered by Samsung USA because it is a Canadian phone, all of this stuff about the Nexus S and AT&T is just that garbage, there is no proof what so ever that this phone will ever make it to AT&T just because it has the 850/1900 bands in it. As for the updates that is the most unbelieveable load of Garbage I have ever heard, WHY would they not get updates?? It is a Google Phone is it not??? They have not released updates because they have not gotten to the 850/1900 band phones yet, all that has been updated is the AWS band phones from T-mobile!!!! Maybe do a little research before posting???

    Hey, I am not saying it doesn't get the updates, its just something i heard. I personally do not know, i said that so maybe someone could ellaborate on it. I'm not going to sit back and take stuff from someone though. Sorry that I don't know as much as you do.

    The 2.3.4 update hit today for the nexus s I9020A, it did take a little while longer, couple weeks maybe, but it works perfectly. I too bought my Nexus S from Negri and have nothing but praise for them. I don't think we are going to see a magical AT&T branded Nexus S with H+ because the only FCC filings for one compatible with AT&T's network is the one I have in my hand

    I've ordered two or three devices from Negri, so as a seller, they're a perfectly acceptable source to purchase phones from. The I9020A is different from the I9020T, so the update just took a little longer to arrive. My T-Mobile Nexus S if is my favorite device that I've had, and I have a pretty extensive list of previous phones. Do it. You won't regret the Nexus S.

    I was also looking into purchasing this phone from Negri. You guys who already got one how would you rate the hardware? Is it good quality with the white backing?

    If there isn't an official word from at&t very soon (if there is going to be an official word) i think i will opt for the version from Negri

    So i am actually still kind of confused haha was the white one that worked on at&t bands just an unlocked Rogers model?

    I would think all Nexus S's should be unlocked, especially if the model number is i9020A. All the "Rogers" model means is that it has the 850/1900/2100 HSPA radio...

    Okay I got ya. I believe if it is going to be announced with at&t it would be pretty soon because it would be pointless to wait to long especially since there will most likely be a new nexus device announced later this year.

    I just got my white Nexus S from Negri a few days ago and haven't had any problems with it all.

    Great device, and damn the white sure does look good, even next to my white i4.. Lastly, had no problem with getting the update a day or two ago. Everything works great.

    You guys have talked me into it. I am thinking about ordering the black unlocked version from negri, has anyone heard anything about the black one? Also, since i have the micro sim, will the sim adaptor from amazon work with the nexus s?

    Not sure about the black, and also not sure about the sim adaptor from Amazon.

    However, I do know the SIM adapter that Negri sells for $6 works well as that is what I bought along with my Nexus S..

    Just wait for official Nexus S for your region, odds are it will come and very soon. If you buy from another store you have to worry about warranty issues and updates or just random issues the majority of us here at the Android Central forums cannot help you with.

    That is what I am worried about. Also I am worried that if I buy the unlocked version now from Negri then there is an official announcement that the nexus s is coming to AT&T (just assuming it will happen) with hspa+ or something different from the current one, I will want to buy it.
