Nexus 5 at Google Play ****NOW LIVE**** Starting at $349
Google has been trolling us for days now on there Google + page releasing all types of cryptic clues pertaining to Android 4.4 and the new Nexus 5. Well, You can now see the Nexus 5 link in the Google Play devices store. Price will start at $349 for the "base" model (which seems like it will be 16GB).
BestBuy and Other Stores
Coming soon to Sprint(Nov 9), TMobile(Nov 20), and Best Buy for the ripoff price of $449.00 16GB Nexus 5
BestBuy might price-match Google's Play Store depending on the manager.
Sprint version sold at BestBuy does NOT come with a sim card tool. I used a typical round toothpick to eject the sim card and it worked. There is a Sprint sim card already installed in the Sprint version but thankfully there is NO Sprint logo on the back of the Nexus 5!
If your package is returned due to refusal of delivery, your order will be cancelled and refunded within 14 business days of the package arriving back at our processing center.
If you receive the package in spite of the delivery refusal note on your door, don't worry. You can still refuse delivery of unopened packages within 5 days of delivery.

IMPORTANT: Don't open the package. UPS will not allow refusal of delivery for opened packages.
For you that many be different, which is why that $30 T-Mo plan is so damn interesting. If I were just getting into prepaid, I’d most definitely give that T-Mobile plan a shot for a month to see how coverage was in my most often visited areas. If it doesn’t keep you satisfied, start looking at Straight Talk.

Tested In-Depth: Google Nexus 5 Review - related to the battery tune tips on 29:00 for the WiFi service tweak http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GVbepUGRiE - my Nexus coming from 6:30 am to 5:30pm drain from 100% to around 55%; after the tweaks, it is at 80% at 6:00pm. I had the Nexus since November 5th. This is on T-mobile Prepaid.
There are 40+ prepaid resellers. They all use one of the big 4 as the underlying network, so the service quality is comparable. Try www.Allprepaidplans.com [allprepaidplans.com]for carrier list, plans and phones. I prefer this site because it groups providers by network.
