Yes I did. Wanted to see if it would let me. LMAO I got the error wouldn't let me checkout Roll

I put the case and bumper in my cart..bumper was 15.99 (pounds) Nexus 16GB was 235.99(pounds) so it was like 252 pounds? It said all prices include VAT (tax, not that I would pay it anyway if it actually shipped to the US).

Almost $400 not including shipping..so...it's about right..
Interesting, I got different prices at the UK play store. I used a London based proxy to access it, and it had the Nexus 8GB listed at 239.99 British Pounds, which equates to about $380 USD. I tried to see how far I could get in the checkout process, and it said my US address was not a valid address. Google seemed to have updated the British site a minute ago, and now it just says "Coming Soon," just like at the US Play Store.

Total phone noob here. I have a Nexus 7 and love it. I am on Boost mobile and pay $40 for unlimited everything with shrinkage, will this phone work on Boost? I was going to pick up a Boost Samsung Galaxy S2 on Black Friday for $299. I use around 250 talk/500text/3-5gb data a month. What's the best scenario for me?

Any help is appreciated and repped. Sorry for my ignorance.

Oh it might have been 239.99. I know the bumper was 15.99 so that might be where I got my 5 from (tired..sorry).

This won't work with Boost. Completely incompatible.

Then you might have been looking at the 8GB model? That's the one it had at 239.99

Tempted to buy a few just to resell or gift to family for Christmas, if I can get them in time. I resold an unopened iPhone 5, verizon model, factory unlocked for $890 on eBay last week, to a US buyer no less. Never ceases to amaze me when people are willing to significantly over retail. I'd buy a N4 4 myself if I didn't just get a GS3. Kind of jealous about the 4.2 Jelly Bean it ships with

Thank you for that info. I will start looking at other prepaid carriers. Any suggestions for the usage patterns I listed?

T-mo's prepaid $30 100 minutes unlimited text/5gb data plan would b good, if you're in their extremely limited 4g data coverage zone, and can save minutes with a free voip app like talkatone. Otherwise, ATT's ST $45 unlimited talk/text/data that's not really unlimited even though they say it is plan might be your best bet. I live in a rural area, but got decent HSPA+ coverage with 7-9Mbps download speeds with ST on my unlocked T-Mo GS3. Used 5GB of data in the 1 month I had it, up to 500MB/day, and they didn't threaten, throttle or terminate me. Data coverage seemed spotty compared to Verizon, but way better than T-Mo. Depends where u live

The $30 plan from TMo is not unlimited talk. It's 100 min voice, unlim text and data. If it was unlimited talk or even anything more than 500 min I would be all over it.
