    So you just happened to receive your Nexus from the wonderful site you're advertising to ask if your Nexus is unbranded? Do you have the phone or not?

    What? :s I'm lost, or maybe you are? Just come in from work, switched on Nexus, tried 2 different sims and they worked. But I read on t'internet just 'cos its unlocked doesn't necessarily mean its unbranded so I am asking, Anyway of finding out if it is branded or not?

    ty? :S

    If there's no name on the back cover of the phone it's unbranded.

    Lol bit hard on him... Anyway..

    Non of the UK ones are 'branded'. They're all sim free stock. Particularly third party stores like buymobilephones/mobilshop (same company), phones4u, carphone warehouse (when they get it) all sell the sim free unbranded stock.

    I got mine from those guys too actually. They offer a lot more subsidy on an upgrade than going direct with the network - but thats generally true of all third party upgraders.

    Had a bit of a nightmare upgrading through t-Mobile from my desire. 5 or 6 calls later and got it done through t-mo reseller chitterchatter on a great deal.

    buymobilephones.net was one of the options i looked at, but it all broke down over t-mo and then not actually doing an upgrade, which would have meant wither losing my number or PAC'ing out to a PAYG, then back to t-mo, all with delays.

    at one point i was going to get a sensation XE through t-mo, ebay it, and buy a nexus off play.com or somewhere, nightmare.


    glad to hear they all come unlocked, wasn't sure if that'd be the case, get mine tomorrow!

    I went with mobileshop (same company as buymobilephones.net) precisely because they COULD do a t-mobile upgrade.

    - I kept my number
    - Was able to remain on my Flext 35 tariff (which is no longer available)
    - Keep my half price for life Friends and Relative discount
    - Get the GN for free

    Buymobilphones.net, mobileshop, and carphonewarehouse were the only three I found who were able to do it without a new connection, and also had or were planning to have the GN.
