I recently tried to sell my Nexus 4 which I kept for about a year and was perfectly happy with but bought the Nexus 5 when it came out. People at the exchange shop I took it to said it failed their test and that they couldn't get it to connect to a network no matter how many sims they tried!!! Absolutely baffled I took it somewhere else and even there they tried a sim and claimed it was locked to my network which is not possible as I bought it from google play and therefore it should have been unlocked. Could this myth about 'sim free' phones getting locked to the first sim you stick in be true?

Its false. The stores are idiots. They obviously didn't connect it probably sometimes this required a reboot (turn on/off) or going in the settings and choosing the carrier.

Greetings,
With Nexus 4 since last spring, no problem until Update to Kit Kat.
-The list of ringtone available is still visible, but the tones are gone, only a system sound (bing), no ringtones. I have located the ringtones in the old folder and placed them in the new /media/audio/ringtones. Works.
But now all the ringtones labels are doubled in the list of available ringtones (settings).
HOW do I delete the empty ringtones from the list (if possible) ?

Thanks !

I did a reset on my phone after the kit Kat update. It fixes all the problems.

Actually I'm having a dilemma on whether to switch to ART runtime or not. Would love to hear from you guys.
