T-Mobile Drops Nexus 4 Price to $49 for a Limited Time

nexus 4 deal

This morning, T-Mobile appears to have dropped the price of the Nexus 4 once again to one of its lowest points. While it’s not the full “free” that it was a couple of weeks ago, for $49 and a new contract, you can still walk away with one of the most talked about devices of the last 6 months. You can read our review here.

The deal is a “web-only discount,” so that usually mean you won’t see this price in stores. We also aren’t sure how “limited” the deal is from a time frame standpoint.

To add to the savings, T-Mobile is waiving activation on all SIM cards and tossing in a free car charger with purchase.

And we likely don’t need to point this out again, but you can pay $349 for the same phone through Google Play and not have to worry about contracts.

    Best smartphone I’ve ever owned!

      I hope they still keep the same design with the new one if it comes out at I/O, but I doubt it. Just read an article that LG is in negotiations right now for the Nexus 5, but I hope it goes to a different vendor. I’d prefer all the top Android Manufacturers to produce one nexus phone a year to their line up, it would give more options, and less stress for one company to produce so many devices.

  • Ugh, damn Verizon ETF…..

    • How much is VZW’s ETF?

      • Glen E Ston

        $350. $10 off for each month its been active.

      Just sell your contract and make money off of it instead of paying money to leave. I’ve been saying this for months (since I did it myself).

        Then you lose your phone number though. I’ve had the same phone number for over a decade. It’s worth $350 (or whatever is left on my contract for ETF after a year) for me to keep the same number.

    Remember again that T-Mobile’s ETF is still only $200.

      Also, this is $50 after MIR.

  • I guess unless you are insistent on signing a contract its still a tenuous “deal” at best. The base price of the contract v pre-paid plan is $10 and probably another $8 in “taxes” and fees everyone slaps on post-paid means you will pay 100% the price of the unlocked nexus from the play store and not have the option of switching to AT&T or a much cheaper MNVO in the near future.

  • Just like the rest of them, this is for new customers only. Those looking to use an upgrade will still have to pay 200 bucks.

    • Mark Shryock

      Actually I just upgraded in store for $99. I will never have $350 all at once so it was the only way I could get it.

      • Seriously? You’d never have $350 in cash available but are signing up for a smartphone plan, the most expensive type of plan?

        • Glen E Ston

          some people barely make it by month to month. http://youtu.be/QPKKQnijnsM

            And if a person is that destitute, WHY do they NEED a smartphone?

          • That’s my thought. I worked with the California HSA and it frustrated me to no end people coming in for food stamps but banging away on their new iPhone and this was back when the minimum plan was $110 a month.
