Nexus 5 and Nexus 7

Google's latest Nexus devices hitting the UNcarrier

T-Mobile is set to start offering both of Google's latest devices, the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7, in the coming weeks. The carrier announced today it will put the Nexus 5 up for sale starting November 14th online (November 20th in-store) for $449.99 off-contract, or at $41.99 down and $17 per month (also working out to $449.99) on a Simple Choice plan. T-Mobile isn't clear on what storage capacities or colors it will sell, and it's hard to guess based on the odd history of it selling the Nexus 4 in both colors but only in 16GB of storage.

At the same time, following up on its announcement that it will carry the Nexus 7 LTE, we now have a date from T-Mobile of November 20th when the tablet will begin shipping. In this case we're looking at $384 outright for the 32GB LTE tablet, or $0 down and $16 per month if you pair it with a plan. The tablet will also qualify for T-Mobile's new deal of offering 200MB of data per month completely free, which is a nice touch.

You can currently pre-order the Nexus 7 to be shipped at the aforementioned date, but there's still no indication that any pre-orders will be available for the nexus 5. Ready for some Nexus action on the magenta network? Hit the source links below.

+100..Steppin' it up! Woo hoo

David Horgan says:

You guys do realize that you buy the same thing directly from Google for $100 less?....

Posted via Android Central App

$100 more, minus what you'd pay in shipping and time waiting for it to arrive. Not to mention that you can finance at 0% interest over 24 months on T-Mobile. For some people, that's worth it.

David Horgan says:

So your saying. By saving today, you don't mind being gouged in the long run. The awesome money saving logic! Save today, but pay more for it later! AWESOME! May I recommend rent to own places. You only pay $50 a month for 60 months versuses buying it outright for $700! Must must be an awesome deal!

David Horgan says:

Plus the 100$ more is the "0% interest." You people are so gullible.

Posted via Android Central App

I'm not denying that you pay more, I'm saying some people still see the value in financing.

brendilon says:

Some folks don't have 350-400 lying around. Is it worth it to pay a bit more over time than to pay it all up front? For some, yes. Especially if it doesn't tie you into a long term contract that doesn't go down in price when the device is paid off

Winter is coming. She's quite the screamer.

rover#AC says:

Maybe those folks should forgo upgrading to every new phone that comes around and save enough to have that $350-400 lay around.

Gotta remember not everyone that is buying a phone has a single line. Consider someone that has a family plan with 3, 4 or 5 lines and needs to buy phones for everyone. Can you see them shelling out $350 x 5 for new phones up-front? The financing really does make sense for some people.

Thanks for reminding me what my future holds with 3 kids. Guess switching phones wont be as easy in the future.

...and this is why I only have Dogs and no kids!! LOL

rover#AC says:

Sounds more to me like people living beyond their means.

en28so says:

I concurr with your statement Rover # ac. I wonder if these people are the ones that want a new phone every single year, when their current phone is working perfectly? I keep my phones for a minimum of two years, which is what a sane person should do. Unless you got an extra amount of income. I have better things to spend my hard earned money on like my mortgage, daughter, food, savings towards retirement, etc.

David Horgan says:

So you end up spending $100 more in the long run. Great financial logic there.

At that price point it is worth walking down the street. It has to be the 32 for me

ljredeye says:

Worth it. Too bad the phone can't use WiFi Calling.

mackie99 says:

Not according to @TmobileHelp on twitter. This is what they said to me...

We want to bring the best value and google has a benefit of being the distributor of the device. We do have EIP and wifi calling.

When I asked if wifi calling will be on the Play Store version, this is how they responded:

The Wifi Calling app is a T-mobile app and may not be available on devices that are not T-mobile sold. ^RD

So, there you go.

lion7718 says:

They said the same thing when the N4 came out. I'll believe it when I see it.

mackie99 says:

I think what they are saying is if you buy it from T-mobile, it will have wifi calling. If you buy it from Google, you are assed out.

jona619 says:

Well I bought the Nexus 4 from them and up to this day can't make any calls on wifi. My bro has the HTC One and he can every time we go to Mexico. The phone is pure Google, and it does not come preloaded with any of their software. So no, I am sure it won't have wifi calling. The reps aren't very tech smart.

quailallstar says:

Not true. Nexus 4 from Google or tmo does not have their WiFi calling baked in.

ScottJ says:

Did you read what he posted? You agree. Re-read.

quailallstar says:

Lol love the profile pic. That's a lot of gigs used.

Bwhahahahah T-mo an extra $100 mark up plus all your bloat. I think not.

What bloat? There's no carrier bloat on Nexus devices...

Is the truth hostile? Is it hostile to call someone an ignorant dipstick when they are being an ignorant dipstick? Or maybe we should get Captain Observant a special award for participating. Maybe a nice big trophy and a pat on the back, let him/her feel special for contributing, even though they were COMPLETELY WRONG.

Have any nexus devices ever come with wifi calling?

Such a great deal! Only $100 more than what you can buy directly from Google for!

Uhhh.. I'll just wait to get it on Google Play..

jackinit says:

I don't think the T-Mobile sold N5 has WiFi calling. John Legere said that it doesn't on Twitter

DataHawg says:

I guess if you don't want to plunk down $349, buying one from TMo with a small down payment, low monthly payments, and zero interest is a pretty good way to go. With Jump you can give it back in 6 months and get the next big thing without being out much. Kind of like renting a phone.

Been confirmed by CNET no wifi calling. T-Mobile's Nexus 5 won't support Wi-Fi calling

mech1164 says:

If this is the 32gb version then the extra 50 is not a deal breaker. An extra 100 for the 16 one though and i'll just wait on the playstore.

John20212 says:

$450 and tied to T-Mobile? I am missing something I thought I read that Google is selling it for $350 (16gb) and $400 (32gb) so why the hell would I pay more to get it from T-Mobile? Unless I am getting is free with a contract.

Amir47 says:

$450 OVER TIME might be more appealing to people who don't have $400 laying around or don't want to wait 4 weeks.

Google search for 0% APR Credit Cards.

return_0 says:

"Tied to T-Mobile"? What?

Posted from my pure Google Nexus 4 using the AC app.

deibed says:

lol...did you read what you just typed? so you won't pay 100 extra but you're willing to get the phone "free" on contract. do yourself a favor, do a search anywhere on this site for subsidies vs paying for a phone upfront, then come back to your post and edit it. Google's the only company subsidizing the phone, all other carriers are marking up the phone way higher than Tmobile is. but hey, go get yourself a "free" phone on contract..lol

mobilityguy says:

According to the loan calculator running on the Nexus 5 I bought from the Play Store, paying $100 over two years on a $350 purchase works out to just under 29 percent interest. You'd be better off putting it on your credit card. If it's the 32g model at a $50 markup, it's 13 percent, not a bad deal.

en28so says:

Shhhh. Don't tell that to the people here that think it's a great deal as to what T-Mobile is doing.

Adamsville says:

Id be willing to get the N5 on Tmo if its the 32GB version
if not Im just just gonna wait for the HTC M8 in a few months

How about saving your pennies every week then getting the 6 next year in the play store. It is not that good of a phone.

Posted via Android Central App

larrygeary says:

If you need a new phone now, waiting a year is not an option. Waiting several weeks for one to be available from Google Play may not be an option either, depending on circumstances. T-Mobile is offering the option to have it now, and the ability to return it to a local store if there is a problem, in exchange for a higher price. This isn't for someone living on the edge of poverty - there are free phones on contract for them.

It took them so long to make me a member that I missed the contest to win a free nexus 5 so I think they should give me one for free. It's only fair you know, lol

blankit says:

That's the same total price from the Google play store for the 32gb

darkoman4 says:

you will pay tax in TMobile store too. Upfront for the whole amount. You will just save $10 for shipping. Which in the end comes as $90 more in TMobile store.

net62957 says:

My Nexus 7 (32G) with T-Mobile sim card arrives on Monday. With the free 200mb of data per month for life........is it true there's a $10 credit toward any data plan that you select? The T-Mobile web site is really erratic since the new beta version was implemented.

SkinsFan1987 says:

I'm gonna get the Nexus 7 on T-Mobile. No WI-Fi calling eliminates the Nexus 5 for me, though. If I had something stronger than EDGE in my neck of the woods, it would be a no-brainer. Maybe if I move about 20 minutes north, I'll consider it.

larrygeary says:

When I got my Nexus 7 with T-Mobile sim in September, it was on Edge. By the end of the thirty days, I had LTE service. T-Mobile is building out their LTE network rapidly.

I don't doubt it. I'm just gonna bide my time and wait until I pay off my current phone. I'm patient...enough.

TruGenius says:

Unless stock on google play improves by Nov. 20 and you gotta have the Nexus 5 $449 beats the high Ebay prices anyday.

PRyan0417 says:

If this is the higher capacity model, this is a no brainer for me on their EIP. If it's the smaller one, I might have to think about it (and then do it anyway).

churro#WN says:

WiFi calling included?

Posted via Android Central App

Unless wi-fi calling works on this T-Mobile Nexus, Why the F**K would anyone pay $100+ more than what it would cost @ the GOGGLE store? ( T-Mobile ,though is the best of the 4 Main USA carriers...)

If you plan to return this phone in 6 months ( thereby losing 6 months of payments ) in order to upgrade to the NEXT BEST THING...then this T-MOBILE Nexus may be just for you. But if you think the idea of LEASING a phone is as absurd as leasing a car, then just go buy it @ the GOOGLE store...

Is 200mb transferable if you give nexus 7 to another party?
