I would contact t-mobile about what is required to get a device on their network.

Tell them you want a nexus s and ask them if it's possible

That seems pretty expensive for the nexus s.

I just sold mine (sprint) for $100 last weekend on Craigslist.

the sprint model is cmda and can only be flashed to boost or used on sprint.
the gsm unlocked nexus s is worth more because you can use it anywhere.
