    Who bought the phone for $529.00?

    Who got the phone with a 2 year contract for $179.00?

    Why?

    I heard that if I get the one for $529.00, you don't get insurance?

    What do you think are the pros and cons of each way?


    By the way, I am awaiting the version coming out for Verizon although I won't be able to get it until July...:rolleyes:

    Thank you guys!!! :)

    Did you forget to factor in the cost of your mytouch when you bought it. ie. when you first got your mytouch you paid, maybe 200. Then if you sold it for 300 then you only made $100 to go towards your nexus, etc?

    How does that work? Having insurance with the $529.00 one?
     
  8. @goten you are right..lol. but i got the mytouch for 99 bucks.

    @mariposa just call tmo and ask for the insurance, its 4.79 a month

    I sold my G1 and MyTouch as well as a few accessories and odds and ends and paid $140 USD for my phone out of pocket. :)

    But, also note that I bought mine brand new (sealed box) off CL for $530, so I did not pay Tax or anything.

    edit: Oops, fat fingered the keyboard, corrected now... :p

    I paid $529. I sold some gadgets I had laying around to justify it.

    529 for the phone
    45 for the dock (which I LOVE the blue tooth music option on it)
    4$ on ebay for a car charger
    10$ on ebay for a spare battery

    Got the 59$ a month plan from T-Mobile (called - even more plus plan) no contract, prepaid plan. Includes 500 phone minutes, unlimited text and unlimited data per month.


    Worth every bit

    I paid $529 for the unlocked one straight up from Google Web Store. 1 year warranty for US people, and 2 year for UK.

    I will be traveling back and forth from US and Europe, so I'll be just be swapping sims, and avoiding contracts.

    I paid the $529. I bought it almost immediately after it was announced and got free overnight shipping (not sure if it was suppose to be like that or if it was a glitch I took advantage of before it was fixed).

    I bought the dock for $45 and paid $5 for ground shipping but still got it the next day. Will also be buying the car charger/dock whenever the damn thing comes out!

    I was going to sell my G1 to help justify costs, but I ended up just giving it to my brother. I already had a 60$ a month plan, and so over the long run, it was cheaper for me to buy the phone outright and stay on my $60 plan rather than buy it subsidized and be locked in to a plan that was $20 more for 2 years!

    I've never owned an iPhone, but I had an iPod Touch (still have technically). My PERSONAL opinion is that Android is far superior. It may be a bit less "smooth", but I attribute a lot of that to the extra things it does, like multitasking, that Apple precludes from their devices. The best part of this phone though is that the build quality is amazing, and the phone has that sleek sexy feel, but the quality and composition of materials used means I don't have to put it in some bulky ugly case to keep it from getting scratched up. I really like the teflon coating, and I think it feels good in your hands and still looks nice from afar. Every Apple product I've ever owned, while looking sexy out of the box, either ended up looking like crap from all the scratches it would accumulate (because of that super high glossy plastic), or I'd have to put it in some rubber or plastic case that would defeat the purpose of the sleek form factor. This phone is truly the device I've been waiting for. I thought it was going to be the Blackberry Storm, but I ended up not liking the form factor at all. This device gives me a beautiful phone, with great specs (especially the 1 GHz processor!) AND it just happens to run what I believe to be the best phone OS on the market. I really couldn't ask for much more.

    new contract pricing with tmo, then i canceled my other line and merged my remaining line with my nexus one line to make it a family plan. worked out great as i didn't have to end up with the 529 charge on my card and i have been with tmo for years, and have no intention of leaving anytime soon, since they're the cheapest in the country...

    i didnt want to spend the 530, so i added a second line. i was going to possibly cancel it, still would have been cheaper, but instead i made my boyfriend take on the extra line and cancel his flexpay account lol.
