    The BB here (Wilmington, NC) does not sell T-Mo on contract so I ordered online. Thinking that they may have a demo I went to take a peek. They guys behind the counter were like sorry no demo only unlocked for $549, so the info on all BB having a demo is false.

  • Alan

    Local BB only had 3 or 4 in stock; they were all gone by 8:06. Sales person said none of the area BB’s had any significant inventory.

  • Just got mine and LOVE it! My store only had 4. This thing is so much better than the myTouch4G. PURE android is the way to go.

    • ihatefanboys

      ill repeat what ive been saying to everyone…..when u NEVER get updates, dont cry OK ?

      • You are dumb you know that? Nexus S is definitely going to get updates. Its a freaking Nexus made by Google.

    The BB at downtown Chicago only has 4 also. 6th in line, so ordered online.

    i was 3rd in line at my BB, they had 17 phones total

  • Bullware

    have to talk to Tmo about my data package. BB wanted to upgrade me to a different data plan. do not want to change my data w/ messaging included for something more expensive. going to try to get it on contract though I still got the Nexus S anyways.

    • Steve

      Has anyone been able to confirm you can buy the Nexus S at upgrade price while keeping the original g1 data plan ($25 unlimited data w/ 400 text). There’s certainly no way to do it through Best Buy’s online ordering system where you have to add the $30 unlimited or $10 200 mb data plan.

    Can someone with the new Nexus S post some benchmark scores? e.g. Linpack and Quadrant?

      Picked mine up this morning…Auburn Hills, MI

  • Aneirin

    I got mine here at Palm Beach Gardens. I got there at 8:00, first and only one in line. By the time we were setting my unlocked nexus S, a second person came to buy his own.

    At first, the employee said they did NOT have it in stock. I told him I HAD been told positively that they would, so he went and checked, and they had the unlocked version, which is what I needed anyway. He was as new to it as I was.

    This is my first Android phone; I spent the first two hours talking to TMobile and Samsung, it seems like the Wi-Fi calling application from TMobile for android is not available on it yet. Too bad! For now, I was able toset up SIP calling via my Gizmo5 account, and I am routing my google voice number through it. Not perfect, but at least workable in regards to having WiFi/SIP calling available.

      well just up front, when u hate the phone because samsung dont update it, dont blame android, just get and HTC phone, preferably a G2 or a mytouch4g.

      • Its not updated by Samsung stupid! Its updated by Google! I just hope you are here when we get Android 2.4 in march.

        • ihatefanboys

          youre funny, u sound like a broken record. get lost i hear boost mobile is hiring.

  • huh?

    linpack: 13-15 (I guess the snapdragon series has an FPU which is crazy good)
    Quadrant: 1675

    Overall though, the phone is feels noticably faster than the G2 or the Mytouch4G, probably just 2.3 tho.

    The GPS issue is real, it could locate me within 20 meters but failed to enter navigation mode correctly. Havent tested to see whether it would still track and update navigation while moving.

      While your comment is inaccurate due to the “concaved” screen I still get your point.

  • Os2_sw

    If you have a 4g mobile phone do not even waste your time with this mobile! It’s super slow-I installed a speed test app and got 1.2mbps for download speeds and the ffc don’t even work with Tango or Yahoo messenger! A complete waste of gas and 10% of $811! You’ve been warned!

    • Alvin

      There is no restocking fee! If thats what 10% you were referring to!

    • You would get the same speeds if your phone was HSPA+ compatible. The network is the same! The only difference is your top speed. HSPA tops out at 7.2 while HSPA+ is going to top at 14mbps.

      Its your coverage, its not the same everywhere else.

    • I HAD the myTouch4G and took it back because I hated being stuck with all of the crap and themes that came with it. I saved my speed results and with my Nexus S they get close to the same. I think I was averaging 3-6 on my myTouch4G and around 2-4 on the Nexus. Really with speeds like that the only thing that matters is streaming video or uploading content. You cant tell at all browsing the web. In fact gingerbread feels faster doing anything

      Also seal the SD card slot and replace the internal flash with an iNand16gchip. Also add a camera flash and sprinkle some ginger over it. The
      last step is the easiest, shove it up your……..mouth a nd call it and see if it vibrates easily.

    Purchased Nexus S as contract upgrade/extension in Torrance, CA BB store. BB rep had to order online to expedite ship to home as it wasn’t in stock at this particular store. Prior to this, I called T Mobile directly to make sure I would keep my unlimited loyalty calling plan ($50) as well as Android web and unlimited text for $35/mth.

          yea the myTouch4G has a faster internet connection but when you have crippled UI and so-so screen it’s pointless. Compared to the myTouch4G the Nexus S is much snappier and is the best Android phone I have used to date. I am very glad I took my myTouch4G back

        • Leaponover

          Stop calling the UI crippled. That is your opinion and really just a stubborn one. The Sense UI is excellent and something Android should strive for. My brother and I both went from the Nexus One to the MyTouch 4G and have embraced the Sense UI. Seriously, you just sound ridiculous stating your opinion like it is fact.

          yea ? u will be crying when the mytouch 4g is updated past 2.3 when ur nexus S made by sam(never get updates)sung doesnt ever get it till maybe mid 2012. even my G2 which is still superior to the nexus S will get 2.3 and probably 2.4 and 2.5 before u see 2.4 stop raving about samsung crap, they never update….

        • Lol I can’t believe you are actually serious ahahaha its a Nexus not a galaxy S dummy. Nexus S is a GOOGLE Development device, G2 is not so with that said G2 isn’t going to get any updates before a Nexus.

        • Just sayin…

          This is, bottom line, the ONLY reason anybody would want this phone. It is otherwise just a Galaxy S plus a front camera and minus the SD Slot and Sense UI. In that sense, it’s quite disappointing. The Nexus One was at least state of the art when it was released. The Nexus S processor, memory, screen, battery, etc. were all available on other phones last summer — phones that are now available at steep discounts.

          So you’re paying a premium for a not-quite state of the art phone just to be able to get undefined future updates a few months before other people.

        • ihatefanboys

          nexus with hardware by samsung = wont get updates. update list will be nexus one, mytouch4g,
          G2. sure nexus(galaxy)S has 2.3 …but ill bet u dinner at applebees it wont get 2.4 before i get it.

My kids checked for me in Cincinnati and the two store they checked didn’t have any either. Ther was no line and NOONE in the stores!!! It took over 30 minutes to place order on the phone for a unlocked one. This was a really poorly done launch by BestBuy

      I don’t think reps/employees know anything about the phone.
      When I went in, the best buy employee was drooling all over the phone.

  • Smithwicky

    Quick question…Why does BB require you to add-on a data plan even if you already have one through tmo? Never purchased through BB.

  • Auser72

    I think that google will still release a Nexus 2 with dual core processor and all the bells and whistles. And that the Nexus S is the first variant of series of nexus phones from different manufacturers that will offer pure google experience. It really wouldn’t make sense for them to come out with flagship phone with dual core right around the corner. Just my thoughts.

  • YOOivansterr

    Um … why is Best Buy making me pay a 4G add-on when we all know this phone isnt 4G, or is it? A rep told me it was a 4G device when I called in. Help?

    • Jesse

      Its not a 4G device. It shows up as a 4G data plan due to Tmobile made it easier for the data add ons showing only 4G data add ons now even if its a 3G device. Doesn’t impact your services nor change the price.

    • DMa

      yeah there is only data on T-mobile, no mark up for 3g vs. 4g.

  • JaMaBBo

    This is my first Android phone, and the people at BB are just dumb. Told them I wanted an unlocked version of the phone. Does anyone know a way I can check to make sure this phone is unlocked? Also I think they played with my phone because I have some internal BB memo’s in the message section of my phone.

    • YOOivansterr

      All Nexus S devices are unlocked out the box.

      • JaMaBBo

        Thanks Yooivansterr for the quick reply. After dealing with BB today I’m not sure what was going on. They had no clue about the phone at all.

        Now if I could get my wifi to connect things will be perfect. Keeps disconnecting…

    • Joelconcepcion_70

      Try both Tmobile and AT&T sim (or any other GSM network). If it works then it is unlocked.

  • Bwjr

    Very interesting….Best Buy took down the customer reviews. My guess is the temp was getting too high since they seemed to fumble this launch worse than google did last year!

  • NokiaN900User

    Got mine from a best buy mobile store in silver spring MD. They had 70 phones at 8am but had about 40 left when I got there around 1130am. Phone is sweet. Has no GPS issues as mentioned by people. This is a good second phone (for me since I like real web browsing on my N900).

  • Grammatica di Polizia

    No MicroSD slot? HTC did this too, with the HD7 and Touch 4G. That appears quite serious.

    I guess manufacturers and carriers have decided to follow in Apple’s footsteps, make phones with limited storage so they can sell newer models next year where the only improvement is more memory.

    That’s going to make phones like the Vibrant more valuable. Doesn’t the Vibrant have 16GB internal storage and up to 32 GB capacity in its MicroSD slot? That seems far better than this phone that has 16 GB and probably only 14 GB usable.

    That means you can put a few movies, some music and videos and that’s it, you are going to have to conserve space or delete files.

    This is a significant event, I think, manufacturers making phones without microSD slots. Not many people seem concerned since I have not seen many comments about this move, going backward with the technology.

    • Leaponover

      Umm, MyTouch 4G that I own has a microSd slot.

    1 problem, the front camera doesn’t work with Tango (hopefully Tango can fix that soon), and Qik doesn’t give me the option to video chat. I can’t find any integrated google video chat software.

  • DMa

    got mine today, the best buys in and around Rhode Island each got 4, i got there about 9am and they still had one left. I love it, it just feels smoother than the N1 with froyo I had, and even a bit smoother than the mytouch 4g i had. I love the load screen, the white google into the trademark 4 colored x, beautiful. The keyboard is much nicer, but with the update of swiftkey i’m sticking with swiftkey. Have any of you used mspot? I know this is a little off topic, but if capacity and ease of putting music is a worry, try mspot, I streamed with both wifi and 3g and there was no lag, I’ll have to try it on edge. You get 2gb free storage and if you want more it’s 4 bucks a month for 40 gbs. put the bulk of your music on that and it leaves a lot of room for movies and stuff on the phone. I had a lot of the same issues with the specs on this phone, and while they aren’t mind blowing, the phone is great, the screen is huge, I like the look of it, it doesn’t feel cheap to me and just knowing i’m getting the first OS updates is a big deal to me, and makes up for some of the other minor things. 4g is still very spotty, in a year it probably won’t be, and that will be just in time for the next Nexus, maybe they’ll throw the ball back to HTC, or perhaps work with LG, tegra two would be marvelous.

  • Grammatica di Polizia

    Some sites are saying this phone is not much different than that Samsung Galaxy S in many respects and that the curved display is false advertising because the display is not curved, only the glass lens covering the display is curved. The actual display is flat, just like all phones are.

    I guess that’s not that big a deal, but I know some people who hate anything Samsung will grab a hold of this aspect of the phone and accuse Samsung of misrepresenting, again.

    But then again, I recall many websites talking about the Nexus S have a very unique contoured display, meaning the actual LCD screen was curved too.

    So is this a letdown? Or not?

    This phones a piece of junk, my vibrant is the last Samsung phone I buy even though Google is handling the updates on this phone doesnt change my mind about it. Samsung can come out with a phone with a 1 ghz tripple core processor and I would still tell them to stick it up there asses.

    • Os2_sw

      I was in my local Best Buy Mobile yesterday at 0900hrs and bought this phone knowing I may return it! First impression was it had an excellent screen! That’s it! Downloaded the speed & benchmark app, tango, and yahoo messenger app! Results-speed test downloads were 1.2 Mbps and I’m in NYC, the Nexus S wouldn’t finish the benchmark, the Nexus S wouldn’t answer when my wife was calling via/Tango from her MT4G, and the front facing camera would not come on while using yahoo messenger! Wow

      But, who am I? So, check out the youtube vid from wirefly-Nexus S vs MT4G!

      Thank God I returned it the same day BBM did a post void meaning it’s like the transaction never happened! I hope this post helps out! Billy

      • NokiaN900User

        That’s the mistake most people are making.
        1. Tango is not yet updated for Gingerbread. So the front camera APIs won’t work (Phone just came out Duhhhhh!!!). Im sure it will be updated later.

        2. As for HSPA+ versus HSPA, people are not well versed on what it actually means. I think there needs to be a tutorial on here to educated folks (Hint to David).
        Let me explain: HSPA (depending on the chipset) has download capped at 7 Mbps and upload capped at 5.76 Mbps (this is typical for most android phones) where as my nokia N900 HSPA has it download capped at 10 Mbps and upload at 2 Mbps
        HSPA+ on Mytouch4G has download capped at 14.4 Mbps and Upload at 5.76 Mbps(Im not to sure on this upload)
        HSPA+ on web rocket has download capped at 21 Mbps and Upload at (I couldn’t find speed)
        So what does all these mean?
        These are all theoretical speeds. Both HSPA phones and HSPA+ phones will have similar speeds up to the capped speed where HSPA+ begins to take the lead. And we all know actual speeds on phones out there have not exceeded HSPA cap consistently.
        So Having HSPA or HSPA+ doesn’t matter unless T-mobile’s average speed is over the HSPA capped speed which is 7 Mbps.

        • Drew

          Yep, a perfect example of this is the Google Nexus S vs. T-Mobile G2 Dogfight Part 2 @this link [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkukfFUXruw] in which the Nexus S clearly wins the speed test vs. a device that spec-wise is TWICE as fast. No explanation for that o_O

      • Dma

        Just to let you know, tango just updated to support the Nexus S ffc,

    • Dma

      Os2_sw, I live RI and I did an internet speed test and got a little of 4mbps download and 1.76 up, which was the same I got on my Mytouch 4g, as for your other findings, the same thing happened when I got the Nexus One the day it came out, not all the apps got updated to work perfectly with the update, so parts of apps are bound to not work right yet, give the developers time to upgrade, gingerbread just hit a small fraction of consumers yesterday, so it’s unfair to really compare the day you get a new OS that the apps work on a Froyo phone and not one running gingerbread. Also Tango did release an update that had support for the Tab camera’s so there is a chance that also will help this phone, I haven’t tried tango out yet but will tonight. The reason I say it might help is that I used LED light (flashlight app) and when I got it on my phone yesterday mornign it didn’t work, but i updated it and the release notes said “added galaxy tab support” and after the update it worked on the N.s

      • Os2_sw

        Is that 4mbps with or without wifi?

        • Dma

          without, i used the app speedtest.net from the market, it’s the same I was getting when i had the mytouch 4g. on wifi I have a n router and was getting between 8.68-9.18 down and 7.84 – 8.3 up.

        • DMa

          I just did another test on 3g, and got 5.5mbps down. then imediately after back to the 4’s, i’m guessing it depends on how active your network is at any given time, i’m in a suburban area, so i imagine even with hspa+ in high population (you’re from nyc right) there would be a lot more traffic than where i live and hence lower speeds in general. I also noticed something that I’m not sure was a glitch or not, but I have a widget I use that shows what type of network your on (eg. edge, hsdpa etc) and the strength it’s called netswidget, well anyways usually i’ve been in edge or hsdpa, and when i did the test that got me in the 5’s it said i was on umts, but after reading some blogs i’m not sure if that was because my phone prior wasn’t using data…this alphabet soup can get kind of confusing. guess i’ll just worry about the numbers =)

  • Bobert

    I can’t wait until some of you find out that t mobile is not going to support the nexus S Just like they don’t support the nexus. So guess what no wi-fi calling for you atleast officially from t mobile. I dumped the nexus for the mytouch 4g best choice I’ve ever made.
    Have fun calling t mobile and them telling you sorry we don’t support the nexus S.

    • Doesn’t matter if its t-mobile official wifi calling or not. I don’t need it though I get great coverage in buildings. Wifi calling is really no reason to choose MT4G over Nexus, the reason I chose Nexus S over that is because its more long term than Mytouch4G. Updates.

        But your Nexus S is running at 3g speeds! There’s only 4 things the Nexus S has over the MT4G, 1. It’s newer 2. The amoled screen 3. The battery is probably better and 4. The gingerbread! But, the Nexus S will get old, I’m sure sooner or later an extended battery will be available soon fit thr MT4G, and I’m 100% positive gingerbread will come to the MT4G! So, you’ll soon have a slower android w/an awesome amoled screen! Billy

          I had the MT4G I’m just a fan of vanilla. To each it’s own 4G does matter to me right now because in my area there is none. We just got 3G so by time the next nexus come out I will get that one. The MT4G will be old in a few months just like the Nexus S but I will tell you this the Nexus 1 was the longest phone I had on Tmobile and was well pleased just like I am with the Nexus S

        YES wifi calling is most certainly a reason FOR ME to go from the Nexus to the Mytouch 4g. I was pretty damn surprised at how many features I was missing out on by being on the Nexus 1. Don’t get me started on the Nexus touch screen. Hmmmm what do you know I don’t have any of those probs on the Mytouch 4g.
        I went through 2 Nexus 1’s when I purchased the phone. Neither would ever work with the official dock I got. They touch screen would go crazy after removing it from the dock.

          I get free tethering though you have to pay 15 dollars. Plus the nexus s get wifi calling

          yea you do!! Its going to be better than the mt4g in a couple of months because its not gonna have tmobile bloatware in it.

          ……In fact this phone will be better than any phones currently out in a year when we get the next OTA android update.

    I am not a heavy movie watcher or music listener on my mobile, but for those who are, I would think having a feature to be able to swap out a SD card to change movie selection or music during a long road trip or flight/layovers would be essential. Am I wrong? But I guess with my current mobile I don’t switch out my SD card or even remove it. I don’t want to break the flimsy SD card door on my mobile, like I have in the past. I use a data cable or email the pics to myself so I can transfer them to my puter. Seems to be faster than actually opening the SD card door, pressing the SD card to eject it, inserting the SD card into an adapter, that goes into the SD card reader… Are there a lot of you that actually remove the SD card?

    • Imstylesflava

      You have enough GB on the phone to be able to watch and listen to enough movies and music. By the time your done the battery would be dead also if you have that much time to watch a lot of movies

    Is any one having any problems when you go to the home screen?

    Mine doesn’t want to move from the main screen, the screen won’y switch to the left or right, but it does open all the apps if i press the app launcher button.
    This phone sux, i’m going to return it!!

    • Imstylesflava

      No problem with mine….

  • NexyOneFtw

      don’t worry, it will be the first phone officially upgraded to gingerbread, but i think for profits I would have been surprised if the don’t give a little time for those anxieous N1 owners to upgrade

  • Bobert

    Why would any Nexus 1 owner upgrade?
    I UPGRADED from my Nexus 1 to the Mytouch 4g.
    Hands down a better phone than a “google experience” phone.
    Nexus is a great phone and calling that cheap plastic and childish looking phone a Nexus S is an embarrassment.
    It seems Google cares very little about quality and its all about quantity.
    The Nexus S is in no way a step forward.

    • Bobert

      LOL and guess what? The Mytouch 4g has had the MUCH BETTER cut, copy and paste so we were the first to get a taste of Gingerbread even before the Nexus S!

    Love the phone and the fact that it Str8 google Vanilla. Yeah no 4g but still a great phone. Pus Tmobile hooked me up with 20 data plans on my upgrade. Best customer service in the world…..

      How did they give you that data plan?

      and u mean BB not tmobile, right?

  • Swapngreen

    The new Nexus S is so much cooler then the old nexus, there are tons of more new stuff on there that there wasn’t before, so I didn’t like my old nexus and I ended selling it to some website for like $200 and something I think it was called http://www.swapngreen.com

    In the 1920s gangsters referred to the FBI (or whatever it was back then, Prohibition Agents) as G Men.

    And then there’s the modern day Compton folk who use G quite a bit.

    And then there’s the G-string.

    Overused? I don’t think so. LOL.

    This is one of the ugliest phones in pictures but it looks a lot better and feels more solid in person. I played with it in a BBY Mobile store and its not that bad. Its not terribly advanced over the current offerings out there now but it is nice in its own regards. I’d encourage everyone to try it out before purchasing. Just not sure if I want to jeopardize my partial upgrade for it at the time. I’d give it a few more months to develop before purchasing. Guess I could get it and trade it for a Nexus One plus cash. Hell, I’d even trade it for a MyTouch 4G.

    • Feels a lot better than it looks in your hand. About the only thing I ever liked about the myTouchs physical desiogn was the metal battery cover. Otherwise that wins the ugliest phone contest in my opinion

        I’ve been reading xda-devs thread for my nexus ( installed swype on it = ).. )
        and there is a rumor about a third party company designing metal covers for my baby.

  • Dma

    It’s a google phone, just like the Nexus one, it will get the updates first, it’s not controlled by samsung or the carrier, you are incorrect.

  • Jrj

    Yea you dumb sh!t. Its a google phone meaning you get the pure google experience just like the Nexus 1

  • JC

    Upgraded from a Vibrant. I bought the last one at BB Ontario, CA and I just have to say this phone is awesome, NO GPS issues, very fast and smooth!!! Now I don’t have to rely on Samsung for updates, I’ll be getting them quickly from Google… chika chika yeah!
