RE: Nexus 4 now available to order from Google Play

Yes.

Though be aware it takes a micro sim, so if you have a standard sim you'll need a pair of scissors/sim cutter/get Three to replace it

RE: Nexus 4 now available to order from Google Play

Thanks dave75. I'll check my sim. Mind you, it may pay me to get a sim only but I think I would loose my number? Only pay £9pm on an old contract.

bigboss,

If you find a suitable case could you post the details please? I've been looking at cases on the net but of course it's very difficult to judge them from just a pic and getting a case from a physical retailer has proved tricky as not all retailers even carry the phone let alone cases for it, I don't like the look of the official bumper either as it looks like it offers very little protection for the phone.

My FiL who ordered yesterday (with a delivery estimate of the 13th) has just had a shipping email. So looks Google may have been over cautious with their delivery times....

That's very good news daveh75, many thanks for the heads up. Fingers crossed I get that very same email when I look at my account :pray:

Faced with the same issue I phoned my provider (Tesco) before I ordered the phone and they are happy to send me a micro sim free of charge and swap my number over to it, also free of charge. The sim would arrive the day after calling them and the number transferred with a few hours, I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was going to be to sort it out so I would suggest you contact your provider.

Even if you went over to a sim only deal you can still take your number with you no matter which network you go to, it's free and takes 24 hours max to complete but everyone I know that have done this has had their number working within a few hours.

RE: Nexus 4 now available to order from Google Play

Thanks. My understanding is that to get a sim only from a contract then to keep Jr number u have to change provider. Hopefully I am wrong since I am happy with three.

No you don't have to change your provider. Speak to Three. Actually, tell them you want to cancel your contract as you're getting a cheaper deal (look for a cheaper deal elsewhere for reference). The "disconnections team" is also know as the retentions team. Smile

As long as your contract period is completed that is.

If you're still on contract with Three, just ring them up & tell them that you want a micro SIM card for your new phone. Theyll simply transfer your number to the new micro SIM.

RE: Nexus 4 now available to order from Google Play

Great news...my Nexus 4 16gb shipped yesterday and is out for delivery today before 6pm! Good service from Google Play and it's great to get the phone much earlier than expected, it also points to anyone who has ordered one getting it much sooner than expected :grin:

bigboss,

If you find a suitable case could you post the details please? I've been looking at cases on the net but of course it's very difficult to judge them from just a pic and getting a case from a physical retailer has proved tricky as not all retailers even carry the phone let alone cases for it, I don't like the look of the official bumper either as it looks like it offers very little protection for the phone.

 

The main advantage of the bumper case is that when placed on a table, the glass surface of the phone doesn't touch the table. So it doesn't slide.

My bumper case was shipped 3 days ago, should come by Monday hopefully.

This case (5XL version) fits Nexus 4 with bumper well:

Of you don't like the bumper & want full protection, this is a superb case (I've got one for my Lumia 920) although on the expensive side:

There are voucher codes for 10-20% discount, can't find them on a quick search. Let me know if you're interested, & I'll find a code for you.

I've bought a case from this seller as well (the cheaper Easecase version, not Puhama) who offers personalised engraving. Again, a beautiful case of a very high quality. You can choose the colour, the pattern & the engraving:

Unfortunately, Nexus 4 is only available in the Puhama version currently. Puhama is hand stitched leather & eye wateringly expensive.

I've ordered the 5XL version of Mofi case for my wife's Nexus 4, for protection when she keeps the phone in her purse, based on these pics:

RE: Nexus 4 now available to order from Google Play

Woo hoo.  My Nexus 4 just turned up.  £3 gel case ordered from Amazon.  Might go for a smarter leather one later.

All synched with Google and the microsim should have my number ported across in the next 5-10 minutes.

Lovely screen and a lot faster than my 3GS.

Now to sell my 3GS.....

Nice! Mine has yet to arrive despite being out for delivery on saturday according to the TNT tracking service, I'm beginning to think it simply won't arrive now and if it doesn't turn up today then it will be time to contact Google Play :cry:
