Please use the quote function. Otherwise, we cannot tell to which post you are replying. At first glance, this comes across as a Sprint troll post. But I do not think you intended it that way.

I believe that was meant for Best Buy, and I share his sentiments.

Y'all need to stop bragging about your N5s already shipping. My G2 which is supposed to be the first triband phone is still showing no progress besides being at the warehouse since October 11th. I'm getting a bit jealous. Y'all just stop.. Seriously. Like right now.

 

The clear indication now is that Sprint placed the hold on the G2 release until November 8 so that it could be consistent with the other first round Sprint Spark tri band handsets.

Yes, we need more people out of work and additional "big box" real estate left vacant.

You're painting with a broad brush man, why are you assuming he wants every retailer to fail? Best Buy has a history of not taking care of their customer and price gouging, if they're not going to change their ways, they can go away. IMO

 

EDIT: Off topic I know, this will be my last post regarding BB business practices.

I assumed no such thing.  Go back to what I wrote.  Both assertions are true.  If Best Buy goes down the toilet, then jobs are lost and leases are broken.  On the latter count, so many cities have a glut of vacant "big box" real estate -- a real eyesore.

SUCCESS!!! Once I had the right place, it went quick. Here is what you need to do to get a SIM mailed to you:

  • Call 1-888-226-7212
  • At first voice prompt, Enter your phone number or confirm that you are calling from your phone
  • Press 2 for "otherwise..."
  • Press 2 for "International voice or data service"
  • Then you will go into the call queue and wait for an operator

Explain that you need a SIM card for your new Nexus 5 that you purchased directly from Google mailed to you and that you are unable to visit a store to get one. They couldn't find the Nexus 5 in the system, but they checked with a supervisor and found the same one that will work. They even said it would come via FedEx, but probably wouldn't go out until Monday or Tuesday. All for no charge! I had to pay $20 for my Tmo SIM.

Worked like a charm (although I got USPS instead of FedEx, boo hoo). Thanks very much.

In a post several weeks ago, Robert coined the phrase "nifty shit" in reference to T-Mobile.  I liked it so much that I have continued to use it.  But, yes, a picture would be worth a thousand words, 998 more than "nifty shit" alone.

That is a nano SIM -- 4FF.  While we are spreading the love, gotta love Apple for springing yet another iPhone motivated industry standard change on us.

 

However, it should work with an appropriate adaptor.

I went in to a repair store. I asked for a micro SIM and the guy asked for which phone. I said I didn't have a phone yet but it is a nexus 5. He said the SIM may need to be device specific? I told him it didn't, but he offered to test all the Sims they have by bringing in the device. That works for me. Pretty good service if ya ask me.

Does anyone know if it's only corporate stores that have the micro SIM's? Do Preferred/ReadyNow stores have them too?

I called and or drove to 6 local stores. Nobody was willing to help me. They all claimed they don't have them....

I doubt that most third party retailers would be willing to help you for free.  They are in business for themselves -- they just happen to be reselling Sprint.

Good point. I guess the point is moot if the phone comes with a SIM. We'll just wait and see.

I suspect the MSM8974 chipset supports it but I don't know if it is enabled on the software end.

I think it safe to say that the Nexus 5 has AMR-WB support.

 

:P

I already knew that!  :lol:

 

I'm thinking more of EVRC-NW, aka Sprint's HD codec. Do you know if the Nexus 5 supports that?

I just got confirmation from my source that stores will have them and they did receive information about what to do with the Google Nexus 5 bought from playstore. He said the stores should have them and that they should be free.

It does not come with a sim. We would have seen that in an unboxing and every one we have seen, that is not the case.

That's good to know. I guess I'll be visiting a corporate repair store next week.

Can you recommend one? Sprint is sending me the same thing.
