It might've taken a matter of days and not minutes, as was the case on the Google Play Store, but the LG Nexus 4 has now sold out on T-Mobile USA's website. Tmo had been selling the latest Nexus handset, which includes support for its 42Mbps HSPA+ network, for $199 with a two-year service agreement. The carrier's site offers no details as to when additional stock is expected, but given the difficulties experienced by Google's own device store, we could be looking at weeks rather than days of waiting. (So much for Google's efforts to nudge would-be N4 buyers in Tmo's direction.)

In the meantime, there's a chance that brick-and-mortar T-Mobile stores might still have Nexus 4s in stock, so it might be worth checking your local store if you're after a Nexus 4 this Black Friday.

Overwhelming demand has already resulted in the Nexus 4 selling out on Google Play in Australia, Canada, Europe and the U.S. Google says it expects more stock to arrive "in the coming weeks". Meanwhile, customers with outstanding Nexus 4 orders were last week told to expect delivery within 3 weeks.

Nexus 4 sells out on T-Mobile USA website


I believe the reason the phone is selling so well is due to multiple reasons.

The Galaxy Nexus proved itself to be a great phone.

Stock Android is beautiful now.

The Android market isn't obscure any more and things are advertised.

Nerds, like me, want to experiment with regional carriers or T-Mobile.

I believe these things really combined into a major sale and they better fix the customer service and sales issues or their wave of sales may diminish next time. Basically acknowledge the issues, fix them ave then publicly promise it won't happen next time.

If they want to kick sales up even further next time, offer it on the phone version of Google Play. But, I'm sure carriers will have something to say about that and is the reason they aren't there now.

While your list is nice and all I think the REAL reason is that, due to historically lackluster sales with Nexus devices, Google just didn't manufacture a whole lot. The only sales success so far has been the Nexus 7.

Very happy with my Nexus 4 from the PlayStore. SOlid second main device next to my Galaxy S III(which I still love also btw) Switched my sim card between the two constantly this week. GSM baby ftw!

They really need to sort out the lack of Nexus 4 stock. It's starting to get ridiculous! Still constantly refreshing my screen here as to when I can order one since there's no physical stores to buy the Nexus 4 in Canada...

You've likely got a bit of a wait before they appear in the play store for Canada again. I ordered on launch day and my order is still on backorder, having changed the ship date of November 15th to "pending". I think you might be lucky if you see it available in the play store before December 10th

Don't they go hand in hand? My guess is that Google was not expecting such high order volumes, and that their system would not take more orders than available inventory.

What's even better than using your Nexus 4 on the Tmo network is to activate it on a sister network that uses the same towers. Unlimited everything including 4G data (not throttled at 2 Gb) for a no-contract flat rate of $49/mo. I can't wait to get my Nexus 4 and activate it on the HSPA network here in Orlando! Check out the plan I've got at ... and get a free Sim & 1st mo free if ordered before the end of November. :)
