Did I do this activation thing right?

    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.

    Well when you buy the phone subsidized.. it gives you this message:

    "After you receive your Nexus One, activation of the phone will transfer your mobile phone number to T-Mobile and terminate your current wireless service plan. If you are still under contract, you may be charged an early termination fee by your current wireless service provider. We can check your current phone number's eligibility now. Your number will not be transferred until after you have received and activated your Nexus One."

    So i am guessing you will be contacted by tmobile to determe your plans:thinking:
