Galaxy Nexus / Nexus Prime coming to TM

Well with all the changes and roomers happening with T-Mobile its difficult to tell real from not.

 

AT&T acquries T-Mobile America: not sure I'm ready to be back with Momma Bell but I see all the new 4G-LTE billboards AT&T is pushing

 

Galaxy Nexus / Nexus Prime being sold exclusively at Verizon:

C`mon! I'm a Nexus fan an proud owner of a Nexus One. I skipped the Nexus S but will gladly trade up to Nexus Prime just hope I don't have to be on Verizon to do it.

      I believe that the phone is just hitting Verizon first, but will also be released to the other carriers, but I have know idea what the time frame is.  I thought that I was going to get the Sammy Galaxy S II, but I went into a store the other day to get a look at it, now I am thinking that the phone is too big.  I'm also interested in the Galaxy Nexus, but I don't think that it is going to be any smaller.  I'm trying to research other phones now, maybe another Sammy or Nexus S, but I would like to have 4G, gorilla glass and an LED message notifier.

    I  agree the Nexus Prime looks good, I would like to see it as a TMO phone. Has anyone heard if the Samsung Note could possibly be on TMO?

    There was a spec sheet for the Galaxy Nexus (Nexus Prime) that was leaked... the spec sheet mentioned that the phone would be compatible with HSPA+, so I think it's only a matter of time.  I tried the samsung galaxy s2 as well... while it's a huge device, it's light weight, and I really didn't notice the size while it was in my pocket as much as I thought I would.

    My rant... It would be nice if Google continued their tradition of releasing the newest vanilla Android phone on T-Mobile first but then again they would be hurting themselves by doing so. T-Mobile is not the biggest network and does not seem to try to get the latest and greatest to compete with others and in turn is hurting its own business. Releasing the Galaxy Nexus on a bigger better network like Verizon with a somewhat realistic 4G network is a better business move. The bigger the network, the more potential buyers. On top of that Verizon will actually sell it in stores and advertise it, something T-Mobile has never done for any of the vanilla Andoid phones (Except maybe for the G1). I hope that eventually they do release the Galaxy Nexus for T-Mobile so we can all have a bite of some tasty Ice Cream Sandwich. If not then it may be time to switch to a carrier that actually support newer phones and technology. That being said I think the only comparable phone you can get now on T-Mobile is the Google Nexus S. It's not as fast and doesn't have a huge screen but it has NFC. You can unlock the bootloader and install any ROM or software you want. You cab even get Google Wallet working. The Galaxy SII is fast and has a nice big screen but is polluted with Touchwiz and a bunch of other garbage that slows it down and clutters it. It is buggy, lags frequently, doesn't support Google Music, has a crappy customized music player, and has touchscreen issues. Actually almost every stock Google app that comes on vanilla phones is replaced with a hideous buggy version of the app made by Samsung. On top of that there is no kernel source and it uses a processor that is not supported by CyanogenMod or any other custom rom maker so you can't even install a decent custom ROM to get rid of the garbage that is pre-installed on it. Once the kernel source is released and/or it is supported by custom rom makers then it will be a great phone to root and install a custom rom on. Come on T-Mobile and Samsung. Make it happen! Give your customers the phones we want so we can give you our money. You will only be helping yourselves and making us happy.

    I want the Galaxy Nexus on Tmobile, but it is not looking good so far.  Tmobile customer service told me that Tmobile will not be selling the phone but will be sold at Best Buy.  I contacted Best Buy and they had no information at all.  I have read that some people are ordering the Galaxy Nexus from Europe and using it on Tmobile here, but I am hesitant to order it that way.  In the meantime I wait. 

     

    Tmobile, give us the Galaxy Nexus!!!

    Galaxy nexus? I hope they get the htc zeta-2.5GHz quad-core CPU,32gb internal storage,4.5 screen....dual-core CPU's are soooo 2011..lol

  • 7. Re: Galaxy Nexus / Nexus Prime coming to TM

      I would just sit tight if I were you, I would be willing to bet a lot that this phone will be released through T-Mobile, as well as the other carriers, after initially being a Verizon exclusive.  How much time will pass is the question.  T-Mo employees usually have very little information in advance, so that's not really a good indicator in my book.

    This isn't surprising, as Best Buy doesn't seem to care much for the phones that work on T-Mobile.  I wouldn't be surprised if Best Buy said that they had no information even if the Galaxy Nexus were coming out the next day.

    Negri Electronics has the Galaxy Nexus, too, for a slightly higher price.  Look for coupon codes online for both retailers.

    Anyways I'm not crazy for Sammy phones.... just get an HTC Sensation!!!  it will be updated to ICS next month anyways...  it has better camera, better screen, better processors, and of course premium build.  Samsung phones are all plastic!! Tmo has better phones than the Samsung Nexus trust me ;)

    Yes Samsung makes plastic phones. It's what makes them light and durable. The HTC Sensation is a brick compared to the Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy SII. I'm not a big fan of manufacturer customizations and don't recommend anyone getting a manufacturer customized phone unless they plan on rooting and installing a clean custom rom. Customized phones have old android version and buggy custom apps. Manufacturers take way to long to update them, and they have more garbage than needed. HTC Sense has some cool features but vanilla android is the best way to go. No CarrierIQ security holes, no bloatware that will waste your battery and make you crazy. I returned my Galaxy SII and got a Galaxy Nexus and it is awesome! No more garbage! If I kept the Galaxy SII I would have wiped it and installed CyanogenMod 9 on it as soon as the first alpha build came out. If you want the best experience and a good phone that will always be up to date and always get fixes in a timely manner then stick with a vanilla android phone like the Galaxy Nexus or Nexus S. Another option is to root what you have and install CyanogenMod.

    To be honest, the Galaxy Nexus phone has been delayed for so long in the US that it's becoming quite a disappointment for me. Seems like there hasn't been any real organization with it's release.

     

    I was really looking forward to the phone but Verizon had to come along and brand the device. Who knows when the release date will be for the other carriers as I haven't heard any information or updates either. I hear the new date is December 11th for folks on Verizon.

     

    Note sure, but in the meantime I may just take the plunge and get the Galaxy S II in white since it's coming out around the holidays.

     

    Here's to hoping T-Mobile has something up their sleeve for Galaxy Nexus. After all, I remember a time when no one wanted the Nexus and T-Mo were the first to welcome it with open arms - even if it was offered through Best Buy. Lol.
