    just wondering for those who received their devices from the Play Store, if you are using AT&T?

    * if so, how are your speeds? are you on HSPA? or HSPA+?

    * does Google Wallet launch with no problems?

    * if you bought it unlocked from T-Mobile, i've read a few threads that you have to manually create an APN setting for AT&T's HSPA+, is that the case?

    Speeds are great. The same as I was getting on my GS3. HQ Youtube videos load pretty much instantly. I could do a speed test for you if you want? I don't know how to tell the difference between HSPA and HSPA+... Google Wallet launch and set up was quick and easy. Everything worked perfectly, (have yet to actually try it, but added both my cards.)

    sounds awesome. some speed tests would be nice info. i'll have to do some on my Galaxy S3 as well. i'm normally on LTE, so i'll have to remember to speed test when i'm on H+. if it's 10+, that's more than enough speeds.

    glad to hear Wallet is working without a problem too.

    Weird thing just happened when I tried to do some speed tests with the speedtest.net app. Found the closest server to be in Wisconsin (I'm in Michigan, and have had closer servers using that app before.) And also, when doing the test it kept getting 4 kbps for download and then 1.5ish MBPS for the upload. Very strange, obviously not the real speeds I'm getting.

    The GS3 is an LTE device on at&t? Your saying it feels the same speed wise?

    Im using this device on AT&T via Straight Talk and all I can say is WOW!!!! Speeds seem great and ive loving this service "so far" (after 5 min of use). LMAO.

    I used T-mobile's service for 10 days via a Galaxy Note 2 and it was HORRIABLE. EDGE sucked.....REALLY bad.

    Sorry, I live in a place with no LTE so my GS3 was just on HSPA.

    How are T-Mobile speeds with HSPA/HSPA+ (is there even a differance between those 2? lol) In NYC to be exact. I'm hoping they are fast/stable enough and ill buy the Nexus 4 from Google play store on an unlimited data plan with T-Mobile.

    i'm in the Phoenix AZ area. just speed tested an HSPA+ over in the east valley and i got 5-7 MBps down and 1-2 MBps up on my Galaxy S3. it's pretty safe to assume, i'd get similar with the Nexus 4?

    (but since i hardly come out to this side of town, i won't have to see those slow speeds as often.)

    PS, now i'm currently using the CM10 stable ROM, in my APNs, it came pre-configged with 'ATT', 'ATT LTE', and 'StraightTalk ATT'. which one should i pick to test HSPA+ even in areas with LTE coverage?

    I had the same download speeds on the speedtest as well on hspa+ on AT&T but my real world usage was definitely as fast as I could possibly need. I stream a lot of Google Music and it works flawlessly and starts playing instantly.

    I'm both surprised & very pleased to say that my N4 is as fast as my SGS III (both on AT&T). I haven't been this satisfied with a smartphone in some time. And I've bought over twenty on various platforms, over the last five years, as well as always having two activated for concurrent usage. Yes I'm addicted to mobile communications & computing. This particular model meets my preferences & needs ideally. The first one ever to achieve this distinction. :)
