So I've never bought a phone outside a carrier store before and never activated one myself AND never been on a GSM network. My subsidized nexus one arrived today and I went to Nexus One Phone - Web meets phone. and went to activate, it began porting my number and informed me that it could take up to 24 hours. That's all. At no point was I asked to pick which plan I wanted to use or asked to do anything with T-Mobile, did I skip a step? My verizon Eris is still working beautifully at this point while I fervently re-download all my apps on my new Nexus One.
