I thought i would share this experience to those unlucky people who want a Nexus 4 but somehow missed on both batches from Google.

Here is what you should do. Find a person (your close friends, relatives, etc.) who own a Nexus 4 that purchased DIRECTLY from Google. Ask them to give Google Support a call and make up an issue (e.g. yellow screen, battery problem, blah blah blah...). Google will agree to send you a replacement device (you are STILL PAYING for the replacement device IF you dont return the device you told them you are having issue with). AND THE GOOD NEWS is, you will only have to wait approximately 4-10 working days to get your hand on the Nexus 4 device.

Gud Luck :)

Or You can stop scamming people that actually ordered it and are still waiting for it and not be selfish.

Or you could not cheat the system and leave the replacement Nexus 4s for those who are having problems.

And I highly doubt you can order a replacement without turning in your original device, even if you do pay for it. What you're telling us about is not a replacement, that's them selling you a new one outside of the Play Store.

I ordered a replacement device and all they said was that "if we do not recieve your original device in 21 days, your account will be charged" or something along those lines. Eh, I don't know. Plus I don't think you will have a warranty on the device? Who knows.

Well im just sharing my experience who actually had an issue with my Nexus 4 (the thread with the Sim Tray)...

Haha your funny. You are sharing your experience with those with issues? That is exactly why you said "I thought i would share this experience to those unlucky people who want a Nexus 4 but somehow missed on both batches from Google.

If you are going to lie, edit your post first...

Well to clear out, i did not lie in my case but as it's a glitch in Google's system and people can order the phone if they missed the batches and dont know when it will become available again so i thought i would share it out

Yeah I think your intentions are good. Trust me, I wouldn't be surprised if ppl are trying what posted right now. Its just a "ethics" thing and ppl have a honor code around these parts. It is gaming the system a bit, but what can you do? I know this works because this is what Asurion did with me when my phone's screen broke. If I didn't send them back by defective N4 within 10 days I think, they would've charged my account the 350 PLUS the 130 I already paid for the deductible. If folks really want the N4 that bad and are willing to pay 400+ for it, I don't see why not. You could actually just head over to Tmobile and pay that price for it unlocked anyway. You just walk in and order it and they'll send it to you.
