Nexus 4 free on contract for one weekend only


This weekend only, until Sunday, February 24th, the Google LG Nexus 4 is free on contract with T-Mobile after a $50 mail-in rebate card. The Nexus 4 is still one of the best Android phones available right now, and is without a doubt the best route to take if you want to experience Android exactly as Google wants. The free on contract Nexus comes with 16GB of on-board memory, as well as the usual quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 8 megapixel camera and 4.7-inch 1280 x 769 display.

While it seems a portion of the American market is finally beginning the transition from the post-paid two year contract phone model over to no-commitment prepaid offerings (just look at this T-Mobile growth), there are still millions of contract subscribers out there. If you happen to be one of those people who have been eyeing the Nexus 4, and you’re looking to sign on with T-Mobile, then you couldn’t have picked a better time.

    This is the first reasonable deal that T-Mobile has had with the Nexus 4. If buying the Nexus 4 out-of-pocket is scary but you really want one and you’re a 2-year deal kind of guy (or gal), then jump on this! I’ve had a Nexus 4 since the beginning and I still love it! I’m not gonna be swayed by the HTC One – it’s just not enough for me. (and I’m a Droid X -> Thunderbolt -> Galaxy Nexus -> Galaxy S III -> Nexus 4 guy – I jump from phone to phone fairly often)

      I would buy it, but if the X Phone is a game changer like its rumored, i dont want to be stuck in the previous game era.

      @ jaxidian: What do you find the HTC One is lacking in?

  • Richard Yarrell

    Tmobile sales for the Nexus 4 has been NONSTOP since day one. I’m pretty sure tmobile sold more Lg Nexus 4′s than Verizon did with it’s crap filled Galaxy Nexus. I can imagine with the Htc One arriving soon and the Galaxy S4 and expected Motorola X phone to arrive soon t-mo wants to get those sales in of the Nexus 4. It’s definitely going to be a BIG spring/summer on t-mobile that’s for sure……

      You really are one of God’s special little creatures, aren’t you? You are the most pathetic mother fucker I’ve ever seen on the Internet, and I’ve been using computers since the mid-1970s, not just in the past few years like yourself. You LITERALLY beg for attention. Is your real life seriously that pathetic? You go on and on about people being lonely and in the dark, broke, unemployed, etc. I’ve noticed that all of the”insults” you throw at people are exact reflections of yourself. Lonely? One only needs look at your Disqus account to see that you really have no actual life. You spend so much time trolling the android blogosphere, you obviously don’t have any real friends. Hell, you often beg for squiddy20 (not “@squiddy20″, this isn’t twitter, fucktard) to comment because you obviously have no friends and you need some kind of interaction. You go on about people being broke and homeless, and that is exactly where you were just a few years ago. You go on and on about being some kind of high-roller, yet you’re bragging about spending a few hundred dollars every few months. So what? ctfu, you’re almost 50 years old, and you brag about spending 600 or 700 dollars every few months? LMFAO, my 13-year-old son spends more money on kick scooters than you do on your little phones, and you think something that costs 700 bucks makes you a “high roller?” Doesn’t the shelter have mental health care? They really did you a disservice by ignoring your glaring, and very obvious mental issues. It is blatantly obvious that you’re trying to bait squiddy into commenting because you’re going off (as usual) about Sprint, Verizon, and the Galaxy Nexus (which, at different times in the past, you yourself screamed in caps and misspelled words (uh-huh, smartphones have spell-check, you retarded monkey, you think we don’t know this?) regarding your “pimp-slapping” fill-in-imaginary-device-and-carrier-of-the-week-here. You know nothing about technology, signals, telecom protocols, frequencies, chipset architecture, optics, or, well, anything. You’re far too stupid to learn any of it, and simply parrot or copy-paste what you’ve seen elsewhere.
      One of these days, you’re going to get yourself, and probably innocent people killed because of your internet antics. We live in a world where people go on killing sprees for no particular reason. You’re stupid enough (not man enough, ballsy enough, or brave enough – don’t be mistaken) to proudly display your real name and picture, then proceed to insult anyone and everyone. That’s beyond mindless. ANYONE with two spare minutes can find out where you live, where you work, where your family lives and works. Seriously, do you think your _phone_ is going to make you bullet-proof? What if some unbalanced person comes into your little soup kitchen and kills 20 people to get you? This is the real world Richard, with very real consequences. Spewing out bullshit bravado like “I’d like to see someone try.”, or “They wouldn’t stand a chance.” is mindless drivel. People who do things like that don’t care if they get shot, Richard. You’re probably too stupid to comprehend any of this, and will start talking about pissing and shitting in dark basements, but if it’s possible for you to actually think about anything, I would try to actually think before you speak (or type).

      Dick, you got a GNex on Verizon so I guess that makes you CRAP FILLED too, you dope.

  • Adryan maldonado

    soooooo check this idea out. Get new contract with tmobile and get free nexus. Immediately break contract and 200 ETF. Sell on ebay for 100$ profit!!! Rinse and repeat as needed

    • donger

      Great idea.

    • Tangent

      And this is why they want to make unlocking phones illegal…

  • Oscar P, disabled murderer and blade gunner

    this phone is obsolete

    *pew pew*

  • Nathan D.

    I have an upgrade, and my contract ends on may, can I still take advantage of this? Or no?

    • darkjuan

      “This weekend ONLY” May would be beyond this weekend wouldn’t it…

      • Nathan D.

    What do u mean the phone is obsolete. Its new and a great phone. What planet are u on. Only phone better is optimus g and that is only different by having lte and bigger memory storage. Wtf!!!!

  • E-man

    My buddy recently purchased this phone directly from the google store.

    The headline is DEFINITELY misleading! Check out T-Mobiles website and read the fine print. True, you get the phone for no money down, but it is not free. You are then paying for the phone at $18/mth for 24 months. This makes the phone $432.00 over the two year period, not FREE! This is $83 more that the $349 that I can get the same phone for from Google Play.

    Not the great deal that they want you to believe.
