one hour and half and so far cant check out. I tried one 16gb then I tried 2 nexus 16GB. I even went down to the nexus 4.... 8 GB. No luck so far to check out. I am tired but will keep trying. All I want is just one nexus 4, 16GB.

No USB OTG support is a curse. I mean for those of us who will store items in pc. But it is easily forgiveable regarding the phone's generous price tag.

Agreed, but Google Drive remedies that now. You can upload any file to it and you have 5GB for free. If you must transfer to your PC you can do so from there.

Question.

I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Nexus now, which uses a regular sim card. Before I was using an iPhone 4S, which used a micro sim card. So I had to go to AT&T and get a new sim card. What kind of a sim card does the Nexus 4 use? I really don't wanna go back and switch my sim card again.

You can cut your regular sim down to size

I've been waiting a week for this. I hope I don't have any problems while purchasing, as I supposed there will be thousands of people trying to get one to before they run out of stock again.

I think after the first initial consumer attack, you're good now. Especially with similar spec phones like the HTC One X+ and Droid DNA out for AT&T and Verizon, and this phone being on T-Mobile as well. All bases are covered. I'm going for it too...

It's sad. I mean Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target pretty much got insanely busy over the weekend with cyber deals, and their servers did not crash one bit.

I quit. It doesn't ship for another 4-5 weeks anyway. By the time I would get it they would have a hassle free batch in place ready for shipment anyway.

"due to high demand, your order could not be processed. please try again later"
or
"Ooops there has been an error------

It's 3 oclock I've been hitting this thing every 30 seconds when do I give up?

I just called Google. They said it's available and that I just need to delete cookies & Cache. I've done that on both Chrome & Internet Explorer without luck. I'm thinking less and less of Google these past two weeks. Their phone reps (one regular and one supervisor) are either misinformed or liars.

This is absolutely the worst experience I'v had trying to buy something online.

Best part is, most people are just clogging up the lines so they can buy one and sell it at a higher price. Already seeing them on kijiji.

2 16gb model, and 1 8 gb model, and still need to buy 16 gb model, but i took my share that i consider urgent for chirstmas and stoped for now to reduce load on server.
If it happens that by 2mrw it is still not sold out i need another 16gb for myself lol

Thanks for the response... glad that it worked out for you :)

Was wondering if one model was selling better than the other, but that doesn't seem to be the case either

Yea i tried in different ways to check thst before i managedto buy it. However i was notified that the 16gb ships faster than the 8gb

Which model did you end up getting ?

Currently it looks like the 16GB model ships in 1-2 weeks, while the 8GB takes up to 5 weeks

Holy crap that was a stressful couple of hours. Finally after spamming the Proceed button, I got one. 16GB turned out to be $392.48 after taxes and shipping.

finally, i got my 16gb, i didnt want to wait another 6-7 weeks for the 8gb model, good luck to everyone.

59. suneeboy (Posts: 154; Member since: 02 Oct 2012)


I got my 8GB. Didn't need 16GB and was willing to wait a little longer. It says 6-7 weeks for shipment. Is that realistic? Do you think it will most likely be sooner? Before the holidays most likely?
