T-Mobile Now Selling the Nexus 6 With 32GB or 64GB of Storage

After delaying for a week, T-Mobile is now selling the Nexus 6, Google’s brand new whale of a smartphone.

The device comes in Midnight Blue, just like every other carrier, but you do have options of either 32GB or 64GB of storage, which is unique to T-Mobile. Sprint and AT&T are both only selling the 32GB model. At least one of our readers purchased the 64GB model from T-Mobile this morning, chose overnight shipping, and is expecting it to arrive tomorrow.  (more…)

Reminder: Carriers Probably Can’t Activate Your New Nexus 6, Here are Your Options

So you received your brand new Nexus 6 today, straight from a factory in China, and you walk into a Verizon or AT&T or Sprint store to have it activated for use. As you and a sales rep get the process going, you get to the point where they need to scan the nano SIM for the phone and then your phone’s IMEI. You can almost taste the Lollipop. You will soon know how many licks it takes. You are this close. The sweat needed to give you extra grip on the 6-inch whale in front of you is starting to build in the palm of your hand. Your fresh pair of JNCOs is crisp from the dryer. The fresh Free Willy tattoo under your tribal band still has a bandage protecting its scab. You are a Nexus 6 owner. No, even better – you are an unlocked Nexus 6 owner on the verge of becoming one with a marine mammal. “I tell you what to do, carrier,” you say under your breath as you reach for your newly activated phone.

And then the sales rep gives you that look. You have seen this look before, typically when the 7-11 clerk scans your lottery ticket. You sir, do not have a winner. “Sorry, the phone won’t activate because the IMEI is not in our system. There is nothing I can do,” the sales rep says. (more…)

Galaxy Note Edge Arrives Today at Carriers, a Steal at $429 With a 2-Year Contract

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge appears to have successfully made its way to US carriers for purchase. Shocker, I know. Unlike its taco-shaped cousin, who enjoyed a brief stint in overseas markets before settling into its rightful life as a proof-of-concept, the Galaxy Note Edge apparently showed enough promise or received enough of a positive response to convince AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile that people might actually buy one. Actually, let me re-phrase that. The Galaxy Note Edge and its insanely high price tag, for reasons that have escaped our minds since the device was surprisingly unveiled on stage alongside the Galaxy Note 4, can be purchased by human beings at a couple of carriers who have lost their minds.

When and Where can I Buy the Nexus 6?

Ready to go out and buy a Nexus 6, the newest flagship phone from Google? Then you are probably wondering when and where you can do that at, I would imagine. November 12 has basically become the official launch date at this point, but that doesn’t mean that every single carrier or store will have the phone at that time. So, since tomorrow is the 12th, we thought a handy little list of stores, carriers, and availability at each would help you decide where you can focus your efforts.  (more…)

Looking to Buy the Nexus 6 on Wednesday From T-Mobile? Check This List First

The Nexus 6 arrives at T-Mobile stores on Wednesday, November 12. We know this because T-Mobile told us on the day that Google announced the phone, that we could expect it then. But, as we have inched closer to November 12, Google has been unable to keep the phone in stock or make many available through Google Play, leaving many to wonder how easy it would be to buy the phone from T-Mobile on launch day. Thanks to a massive spreadsheet that lists potential Nexus 6 in-store availability at T-Mobile that leaked over the weekend, you may be able to pin point the stores you should target or avoid.  (more…)
