    Yup. 8gb = $299 16gb = $349 and HSPA+ 42. I also was concerned when I saw +21 on the Google play store but also noticed they changed it to +42

    Anyone in Las Vegas have HSPA+ 42 speed test screenshots?

    I'm planning on leaving Sprint, getting the Nexus 4 and getting this $30/month web special plan. My question is, once I get the SIM card activation kit and go online to activate it, is there a way to transfer my current phone number over? Or do I have to go in to a T-Mobile store or do anything else to keep my number? My wife and I are both going to be making this move and we need to keep our phone numbers.

    I would also like to know how good reception is in Las Vegas. Specifically in Mountains Edge, if anyone knows. I don't know anyone who has T-Mobile to be able to ask them. We've had a few people with AT&T at our house and they had pretty much no reception. We have Sprint and we're constantly roaming. Luckily we don't have roaming charges.

    Once you've activated, just call T-Mobile customer support and they will help you get your phone number transferred. I believe you have 30 days after activation to get your number transferred but, obviously, the quicker you get the number transferred the better.

    Will the Nexus 4 use the regular or the micro sim card?

    I've heard some people get as high as 22-25mb down, average of at least 12. Not sure way out in Mountain's Edge tho.

    You likely will not be disappointed with T-Mobile's HSPA+ 4G speed - provided, of course, you have a good signal, same as with any provider. Could go as high as 15-20Mbps.

    I'm on Sprint and plan on getting the Nexus 4 when it comes out. But, instead of porting my current number to a particular carrier, I will port it to Google Voice. This way I can easily change carrier if I don't like the service, coverage, speed, etc.

    So you spent $9.08 when you could've ordered microSIM activation kit last week for $0.99. ;)
    I'm just teasing.

    For anyone without a SIM cutter, you can try visiting your nearest TMo store and they may cut it for you. MicroSIM activation kit wasn't available last month when I needed it so I ended up purchasing "regular" activation kit and having it cut at the TMo store for free.
