    Got the Warp last Thanksgiving. Problems are documented here, so I'm gonna switch soon. I've always been on Boost, so was leaning toward Galaxy S2.
    However, I spent time looking at the Nexus on T mobile. Initial cost is about the same. They have prepaid for $30 month, and $15 for hot spot. I can manage that plan's 100 minutes of voice with Skype and my work phone.
    For me, one of the big benefits of the warp is the screen size, and so I want to go up in real estate (and would go to note 2 if I could do it prepaid!).
    Asking for opinions from forum on t mobile, on Nexus v Galaxy S2, and what other android prepaid you like.

    Only crappy thing about the nexus is it doesn't have a sd slot so you have to rely on internal memory. How is the t mobile coverage in your area? Mine sucks. If I were you I would just pony up the cash and get the S2. I'm torn between the sequent (less $ and Alittle less on the spec dept ) and the S2 (crazy sick phone with everything I want but costs almost a months rent) It all boils down to needs and wants .If the nexus works better for you with t mobile go for it. Most places have a return policy so you could always switch back to boost. Well good luck in your endeavors and feel free to post more questions Maybe someone could help you more. Cheers.

    I like the Galaxy Nexus, but like someone else said, no SD card slot. The features are pretty solid and it will run much faster on T-mobile's "4G" (LOL) vs what you currently see from Boost, even compared to the Boost's WiMax GS2. Other notables on the Galaxy Nexus is that it is unlocked and will work with T-Mobile or AT&T services if bought from Google. Just add the appropriate SIM.

    Also, if you go thru the Walmart website you can get the GS2/T-mobile for $299 on their $30/mo plan. So I would recommend this over the Galaxy Nexus if you are switching to T-Mobile. You can also wait to see what Google does about the next release of the Galaxy Nexus line. Rumors have indicated multiple handsets in the pipeline....

    I did not know about the Nexus lack of sd card. But, if it has 16gb internal, that should work. Xman, why would you recommend the s2 over the nexus?

    Only 2 reasons:
    1) Price ($299 vs. $349) Note: not the Boost GS2 (T-Mobile's)
    2) SD Card slot

    I do like the Nexus.. but given the above, that's the way I'd go.
