Has anyone ever noticed that their nexus 4 connects to wifi very quickly in like one and a half seconds right after pressing the toggle button? Why is it that fast compared to other phones??

must have found a very stupid buyer

for less than 380 you can have one delivered the next business day with full warranty if bought online
not really. alot of people can't order online because they do not have credit cards. some of them laundered their money too.

$349 + $13.99 shipping + $0 tax = $362.99 = $360 + $2.99
I know it doesn't really apply to you because of tax but I was trying to point out how close your price is to list.

how did you qualify for $0 tax? tax exemption is for resale. this phone is not for resale. unless you cheated on your tax.

Has anyone noticed a "Rebill" charge on their credit card recently from Google for the purchase prices of the nexus 4 even after returning and disputing with their credit card company? I had the charges reversed after I disputed with Chase, and the status of my Play order says refunded, but on April 18 I see a "Rebill" charge for the phones that were refunded. Just seeing if anyone else has seen this....

I got the Nexus 4 from Platinum Tel. The box was open. Anybody got a open box? Have you tried talking to PTEL to find out why it is open box?

This may be a slight hit for ppl who want to sell this. New Open box is always less in value compared to New factory sealed box.

Cash back has been confirmed in my be frugal account
cash back is Confirmed (Locked) or Pending (just informed from PTEL to Frugal)?

Confirmed - You can transfer the money from Frugal to your Bank account/Paypal.
Just informed - You have to wait ~90 days to get it confirmed.

me too, what the fark

if I look at the back of the box it even has 2 black stickers on it on both sides that has both been broken at one time

the phone HAS BEEN TURNED ON, why? I have no idea

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feat...Xf4#t=225s

you're supposed to get the settings etc. when you turn it on the first time, but PTEL didn't even bother doing a factory reset after playing with the phone? Is it refurbished?

My AC adapter is new/sealed, usb cable might have been used, sim card removal tool has definitely been used, there is a hole in the clear plastic bag around it

the only reason they should be doing this is to install bloatware on the phone, but I can't find any

I'm seriously considering returning the phone, I don't want one they have had their dirty fingers on when I pay full retail price for it, it is unlocked from factory, so why are they messing with it? are they selling us refurbished/returned phones?

One more very important thing, how does the $40 airtime I paid for work? I only received a sim in my shipment

I contacted PTEL regarding the open phone. But they were trying to convince me by saying, every nexus was programmed with their APN settings and they do some sanity check. But they never answered my other two questions.
1. Why can't the phone get APN via network once it is powered on? (I checked my PTEL SIM with nexus 4 from Play store it worked fine but the APN was little different than what they provided)
2. Is PTEL capable of doing sanity check better than LG and Google?


Regarding the recharge card, you need to scratch the area of the paper where SIM card stuck to find out the PIN for recharging your account.

You can convert PTEL CDMA to PTEL GSM first (by contacting customer care) then use this $40 for your current plan or recharge this and activate the new SIM for any plan you want. It need not to be $40 monthly plan.

You just got $40 recharge coupon which can be used for any plan.

Oh ok, so basically that scratchy area = $40 of airtime?

I can sell the sim + airtime on eBay, right?

Could you please turn your phone on and see if the APN settings really are there, in my phone I can't find them, rendering them turning the phone on completely useless

here's a guide i found online if u need it

I'm personally planning on keeping the phone since I will get it pretty cheap, but still, why the f*** do they have to open it up and mess with it??!?!

I'm going to use t-mobile sim btw. so I don't even need their APN settings

Yes PTEL has updated the APN settings in my phone. Do you want to know the APN settings?

I'm just wondering where I would find those settings? Are they listed somewhere? my APN window has nothing in it.

I'm most likely going to do a factory reset though, I just use prepaid on t-mobile.

and selling the p-tel sim + airtime online shouldn't be a problem, correct?
