I bought one last time, after a lot of attempts. Later received an email that it was back-ordered.Yesterday night email came that my phone would be shipped this week and they will reimburse me shipping charges ($13 for 2 day shipping)as a courtesy. Looks like they got new stock. Good luck to everybody!

fwongsjsu said: So I am currently a Tmobile customer. If I get this phone will it work with tmoble? Can I just remove my sim chip from my current phone and then insert it into the N4 and it'll work just like that or wil I have to bring it into a Tmobile store to get it activated? I currently am using a MyTouch 4 g. Thank you.
yes, it will work with T-Mobile. It uses mini-SIMs, so if your current phone uses them, you just need to transfer. If your current phone uses a regular SIM (or you use an iPhone 5 with a micro-sim) then you need to get a new SIM. I had no problems getting a new SIM with my current number in the local T-Mobile store, and they did not charge me anything for it - and I'm on prepaid.

mkha said: Anyone who received this phone from previous purchase, please let me now how long do they take to ship/deliver you? Can I get this before Dec 6th without any express shipping?
Mine arrived within 96 hours after ordering. Others were put on the "back-ordered" list and are still waiting.
No SD card slot, and can NOT change battery, which performs worse than expectation. With $300, you should not expect to buy a top end smart phone.

HappyScrappyHeroPup said: This is a good deal because T-Mobile offers the same phone for $150 more off-contract.
$349 for an up-to-date off-contract smartphone like this is a great deal. Few up-to-date smartphones reach prices that low, and of those that do, most of them are Windows phones.
I don't get why T-Mobile is selling this phone at such a huge markup...they make their money from selling phone service and contracts, not the phones themselves. It seems silly to sell this for $200 with 2-year contract required, especially for a crippled/locked version. Why not for (say) $50, or at least something more in line with the ($300+ off retail) subsidy paid for other phones?
Is this a case of them paying an inflated price for these phones to get a guaranteed supply? Or do they just pay a much lower 'wholesale' price for the other phones they sell than I'm thinking?

I don't necessarily recommend this seller over any other, but it did arrive pretty quick (1st class mail from Cali) and it did the job.
I practiced on some old sim cards before doing the real one, I recommend the same if you can. I found I had to really push the card way in or it was almost into the metal/circuit board.
PS I definitely DO NOT recommend the sim adapter that is supposed to let you use the newly-cut micro back into a mini slot, really trashed the pins in my phone when I tried to remove. luckily they were just badly bent and none broke.

berkeleyman said: which pre-paid carrier would be best to activate this phone on? Looking for decent monthly rate for ~100-200min + data If you have good Tmobile coverage it's $30/mo for 100 minutes and 5G data, unltd texting.
Otherwise if you have better ATT coverage or consistently need more talk minutes, I'd recommend Straight Talk $45/mo unlimited talk, text, minutes (really a 2G cap on data though). You can ask for ATT or TMobile ST card.

Can you just order the sim card from T-Mobile site directly?
