Any word/hunch on when they'll get some more stock in? (posted Dec 23, 2012)

I guess I was just plain lucky in getting mine so quick.

I also had heard that Googles phone support was pretty poor, but it worked fine for me when I needed it. Hopefully, my luck will continue with this phone.

Right now I'm getting tempted by the ebay market. Though I refuse to pay much more than 450 for a 16gb. I'd much rather just get it from Google. Wish they hadn't botched up this launch so terribly.

I want an 8GB as a backup to my Lumia 920, this supply chain is ridiculous. Not sure LG is ready for the big leagues.

Promised a 1-2 week ship date i.e. i was supposed to get it before Christmas. I'm now concluding the 3rd week and entering into the 4th with no phone or updates. Yet i can't cancel my order either. NEVER again will i buy anything from Google. Atrocious.

New batch supposedly next week. I wouldn't count on it though due to the new year. So, second week of Jan would be about right.

The worst part is, is that I can't even submit an order, even if there is nothing in stock. I just want to submit an order. I don't care how long it actually takes to ship the phone. What a botched up launch by Google.

I really wanted this phone but Google really did screw themselves, like others have said there should be an order system even if there is no stock atm. I am going to wait for the Samsung S4 now.

Nexus 4 Availability Watch

So after doing some research and asking some questions I've decided my Android test phone will be the Nexus 4 - unfortunately it seems I've decided this at a bad time!

I know T-Mobile is supposed to get some stock in this month - do ya'll think that means Google will also have more stock and would T-Mobile sell unlocked versions or only with 2-year contracts in their stores?

It will come unlocked no matter what the carrier.

Sure - I was speaking more in terms of pricing, like could I walk into a T-Mobile store and buy an unsubsidized N4. Though after some research it seems T-Mobile's "off-contract" price is something in the neighborhood of $500 correct?

No problem - I'm feeling somewhat obsessed today about the N4 and have been scouring the web for any information I could find - definitely worth it to wait and get it cheaper through Google......even with all the headaches I've heard about.

I'm not in any hurry - except that I'm excited to try it out!

I remember reading about this a month ago. I think it stated that t-mobile would sell them off contract, but at $100 more for each model. Although considering the scarcity, I would expect them to keep it for 2 year agreements.

Took the money I had set aside for an N4 and bought an Xbox 360 and the Rockstar hits game pack. Sorry LG/Google....good try though.

It's a shame too....here I am, Apple fanboy and all, ready to try out Android and the N4 is my device of choice....but I can't get one because Google/LG can't produce more than 400,000 devices after having it out for 2 months?

And to think some complain about Apple's supply chain....haha 5 MILLION in a weekend....

Yea it really sucks. There's no way I'm paying $500 for one from eBay or Tmobile either.

Me either - I'm anxious to get one, but not anxious enough to overspend by $150!
