It’s not often I like to compliment Best Buy but I have to admit that they are definitely on top of this Nexus S launch. Not only do we have a detailed breakdown on how the launch will work, this afternoon Best Buy provided a detailed rundown of all stores that will sell the Nexus S on contract. We emphasize on contract here as a reminder that ALL Best Buy stores will sell the Nexus S unlocked but only the locations listed below will sell it on contract. Hit the full list below and get ready to camp out, or not…in Florida right now its 42 degrees, for me that’s called “hell no will I camp out weather.”

P.S. If you don’t want to buy a Nexus S you can try and win one from our friends at Phonedog!

P.P.S. I apologize that this post came a little later than I had hoped, for the last few hours the aforementioned cold weather has left me internet-less. If anyone from Hotwire Cable is listening, you guys are terrible.

    • Bimmerz

      • Bimmerz

    On another note… Gatta love la nina. We had a high in the 60s today in Boulder, and its still 55 outside!

  • NobodysBiz

    This can’t be the whole list? That SoCal list is weak. Just a small handful on the west side? Nothing for the largest county in the US (San Bernardino) nor Riverside counties?

    What the hell? Only two cities in Dallas? And over 23423402034 in Houston? This is crap!

    • Kendrix_myrealname

      Frisco, which is my store, Grapevine and Mesquite are all in the Dallas area. Like 20-40 mins away from each other. So yea there are more than two stores here. I’m still iffy about this phone. i do think I will waste an upgrade on it because the black market will go crazy over this thing. Dunno why anyone on Att would want it though.

  • Future Nexus S owner

    I’m slightly confused. I understand what off-contract means ($529). But, does off-contract automatically mean that the phone will be unlocked? I want to buy it for $529, but want my phone to work on t-mobiles network when I walk out the store (obviously, I’m an existing customer of TMO).

    Can some one clarify this? I won’t have to go to a TMO store to activate my Nexus onto the network, will I?

      Yes off contract = Unlocked. All you gotta do is slip in your T-Mobile sim card and pretty much you are set up.

      • Future Nexus S owner

        Ok, I was reading that people using it on AT&T’s network would be EDGE only.. So I was just getting worried that would be the case for me as well unless I went into a TMO store.

          Nah AT&T gets edge because of the network bands it has locked or unlocked you definitely will be connected to 3g if you have t-mobile and buy off-contract.

    wow um best buy is starting to remind me of circuit city. All of the MD releases are in not so safe areas. Rockville, college park, white marsh, and laurel are some of the biggest and top selling stores in MD. WTF

    I swear, some people need to learn to comprehend when they read. Best Buy is selling the Nexus S in ALL OF THEIR BEST BUY STORES AND BEST BUY MOBILE STORES. The list provided in this blog post is only for BEST BUY MOBILE STORES. That’s all. Go to these stores if you want to sign a contract, otherwise GO TO ANY BEST BUY STORE TO BUY THE NEXUS S. Of course, quantities can vary.

  • HTMLSpinnr

    Went into a Phoenix area Best Buy – asked how many they’d have on hand. The stores that support T-Mobile will have 35, and the stores that do not (Unlocked only) only get 4 each.

    I will check three different Best Buy stores and hopefully I could buy it at the first stop (Bay Parkway), so I can save time for examination.

  • Ghagli

    No Austin? WTF?!

  • Darn

    No San Antonio or Dallas……I commute between both cities and I had hoped that would make it better for me to score a few of them……SMH

  • Pokershark

    The problem is that Best BUy has the phone and we dont. Tmobiles buisness plan is screwed up

    • Paintballa628628

      its not tmobile… its google

  • Folky15

    this list is inaccurate – I just called Best Buy’s Nexus S support line and they confirmed that my neighborhood store will be selling this phone at the 199.99 price (with contract of course). My neighborhood store is NOT on the list posted above.

  • LOLSAMSUNGSUX

    I dont see all the excitement over this phone! Nexus One needs a REAL predecessor, not this……seems like a really meh phone. C’mon Google, Nexus 2 with HTC!!!!!

    • Bob95742

      predecessor? you mean successor.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ElectroHop Jay Alford

    Once we get the Nexus 2 … made by HTC … and sold in a T-MOBILE STORE …. Then we’ll have something. Until then, the Samsung Nexus can hang in a tree.
