Miss out on the Nexus 4? Call your local T-Mobile store


Did you try to purchase the Nexus 4 this morning and come up empty? The Google Play Store was riddled with errors and the highly-anticipated phone sold out quickly, but you might still be able to pick one up tomorrow at your local T-Mobile store. New customers will likely be forced into a 2-year contract, but select T-Mobile retail locations will have the device on sale while supplies last.

T-Mobile is selling the 16 GB version of the device, which was selling for only $349 in the Google Play Store. If you get the Nexus 4 with a T-Mobile Classic plan, it will cost $199, after a $50 mail-in-rebate. Customers who go with the cheaper Value plans will get the device for $199, and then owe 20 monthly payments of $15 (total $499).

  • Value plan: $199.99 down payment, and 20 payments of $15
  • Classic plan: $249 payment, then you get a a $50 mail-in-rebate
  • No plan: $499.99 is the full retail price

Not all T-Mobile locations are carrying the device, so make sure to call ahead. Different stores have different policies, so you might be able to get on a waiting list for when the stores open in the morning. If you have any luck finding the Nexus 4 at a local store, please let us know in the comments below.
