After reading similar instructions on another site, I kept trying. I kept trying til I saw "add to cart." After it kept telling me that the phone didn't get placed in the cart, I decided to wait 5-10 seconds or so before hitting "add to cart." Voila, it was in the cart. Then, as noted on the other site, they said to keep pressing the "proceed" button even though it was grayed out. Eventually, it gave me an option to pay for it. Success. I have dual screens at work, so I used Firefox and IE 9. Success for IE9. I went through all of this for my wife; she's not a techy at all, but I wanted her to have something new and fast (she has the Sensation 4G). If the Nexus 4 came with a memory card and/or at least 32GB and a camera in the center, I would've gotten one for myself... oh well, guess I will be waiting for the GS4 or the next Nexus. I see that the device is totally sold out now. My ship date says the 15th, so prayerfully, I should have it by Monday, though I won't give it to her til I can get a case for it.
