Over on Android Central I am seeing a lot of people getting shipping notices today... some even to be delivered today.

There is still hope, folks!

I noticed the Nexus 4 is available to order on T-Mobile.com...?

Is there a catch or something? I'm half-thinking about getting it on T-Mobile and then paying the ETF with AT&T (T-Mobile is cheaper + faster for the Nexus 4)... Crazy talk?

T-mobile one is on contract at $200. $350 unlocked straight from Google. If you want to do a contract sure, but most people like the price bc it is unlocked with no contract. up to you..

From several sources, the T-Mobile one is unlocked as well. It's the exact same phone.

My AT&T ETF would be $185, making the total cost $385+taxes, which is not much more than the $350 + shipping + taxes I would pay with Google...

Fully understandable.

Also... Google and Dish are going to partner to start a carrier. Dish owns LTE spectrum, if I'm not mistaken.

Maybe this is how they're planning to put the Nexus line on LTE!

Dish cannot even get television right.... scary to think about them offering phones.

Is there any way I can order the phone under a sort of preorder type thing? I'm never gonna be able to buy one when they go on Google Play again because I have classes :/

Basically what I mean is pay for it fully and just wait 4 weeks for to be sent.

Nope. We're ****ed, both you and me.

Just to let you know how badly have messed this up, I ordered a 16GB model and received an 8GB model instead. After much faffing, Google finally sorted out an RMA to swap. Hopefully this should be sorted shortly (my Play Store order history states that I should receive the new device on the 20th).

However, the phone is great. Battery life is definitely poorer than my iPhone 5 on Wi-Fi, but I'm more interested to see how it fares over 3G.

At least you got something. Still in limbo over here. No shipping info, no back order email, and CSR reps can't tell me anything b.c they don't know either.

Ditto. Starting to get a little pissed. Google made me pay for 2 day shipping but we are now on day 4 and have no news. IMO, we should be getting free shipping at this point too.

With so much demand, I don't see google rushing to provide another version soon. Probably when 16gb sales go down, google will announce a 32gb model.
Nope all stock here no t-mobile apps loaded or anything

i didnt mind it really it was 100 bucks more. becasue shipping and everything came out to 392, i had the new phone itch for about 6 months, as soon as i found one in town i jumped on it.
