Best Buy has Google Nexus 4 in stock for online purchase (Wirefly now has $149.99 deal)
You might recall that last week we told you that the Google Nexus 4 was back in stock at T-Mobile for online orders. Now, we are happy to report that Best Buy also has the hard to find 16GB stock Android phone available for $199.99. This price requires you to sign a two year contract with T-Mobile. The deal is available online only.

We know that most of you are staring at your screen, weeping softly over being unable to purchase the unlocked version of the Google Nexus 4 from Google, because this is where the sweet spot of the pricing lies. While in stock, Google was offering the 16GB variant of the phone unlocked for just $349, an incredible price for such a well-spec'd model without getting handcuffed to a carrier for two-years.

So to recap, the 16GB Google Nexus 4 is $199.99 with a two-year contract from T-Mobile and can be bought online at that price from T-Mobile or Best Buy. For $499 from T-Mobile or $599 from Best Buy, the phone can be purchased unlocked. Lastly, while now sold out, Google will sell the phone unlocked for $349 once inventory is replenished. 

If you don't mind being married to T-Mobile for a couple of years, your best buy right now might be to enlist for the 24 months and save as much as $400 on the phone.

Sweet price but i don't like BEST BUY RESTOCKING fees. I'd stay away from them if u don't want a fee to return the phone.

Plus they don't know what the hell they're doing, anyway.

I don't believe Best Buy has restocking fees anymore. They got rid of them over 2 years ago.

Best Buy stopped doing restocking fees in 2010.

Had to write down (T-Mobile) in the title.. Unethical way for attracting readers.

Looks like every retailer other than google is restocking on the nexus 4.... Shows how much of a steal you get it for if it's straight from google.
