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!

Amazon
http://www.amazon.com/Google-Nexu...B00GCLZJ1G - (16GB - In Stock) - (Off-contract) $449.99 << looks like nobody told amazon about the "lower price" if enough ppl submit maybe things change

WON'T WORK WITH VERIZON, SO STOP ASKINGBig Grin
WILL WORK WITH AT&T, T-MOBILE, SPRINT. See bottom of wiki for more network and Sprint SIM card details

Qi Charger

White - http://www.ebay.com/itm/QI-Wirele...51b4809dff
Pricey at $69, but this TYLT Qi charger [tylt.com] is the best.
Makes the Nexus 5 usable while charging.
Even better for the Nexus 7 tablet... Watch a movie while charging.

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.

Prepaid Service:
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.

Yes, of course. All Nexus 5 are sold unlocked. You will find a Sprint sim card already inside when you get the phone. Just remove it and put in a sim card of your choice and you are good to go!
Great to know. LG G2 LS980 has to been unlocked to use GSM sim card.

SD has the WORST explanations for such things

For example, there was a free item which had nearly a thousand replies. Thread clearly told you it was free. Still in hot deals since it was on FP

Any other free items that was on hot deals that wasn't FP???? QUICKLY pushed to it's Freebie section!

So basically, if SD isn't making monies off of it, then to the closet it goes....no matter if it's much better than everything else at the moment (which also is why you GOTTA look at other things outside of hot deals, as I always tell my friends..)

Yeah, it's so stupid.
I would post about free digital items but since they weren't getting any referral money from it they pushed it immediately to the Digital Freebies section, but if someone posted a similar deal for a site they can get a referral from they hit front page.
