Google Nexus 5 by LG Preview (LG D820)

Recommended Posts

This phone isnt a surprise. Its not like Sprnt found out it was coming the same time we did.

 

Plenty of time to put together internal support pages and memos.

 

exactly what I said a few posts back. Smh sprint Smh

So looks like I'm getting one now. I was told this though. "Sprint did not make SIM purchase information available to all channels until today."

 

I'd like to think this was told to them because of us...lol

I would think so too, but I'm not shocked, as they did the same thing when I asked them about the 4G Wimax phone dealo and how I could take part. Yet no one knew their ToS even changed till I called about it.

Just ordered my SIM through international chat; no questions asked. Decided not to pay for the overnight; I figure I can muddle through on my Evo 4G LTE and use my Nexus 4's SIM to play with it on T-Mobile (and do a bit of T-Mobile LTE mapping while I'm at it) for a couple of days.

Can someone tell me if the sim has to be specific to the Nexus 5? or will any micro sim that Sprint has work?

Other than size, SIM cards are not device specific.  That is part of what the GSM Kool-Aid drinkers love so much.

After thinking about it, I don't want to leave iOS. I don't want to give up iMessage. I've got a 32GB black version being delivered on Monday and a SIM coming on Tuesday. I'd be willing to part with them at my cost to a forum member if anyone is interested. If this is not an appropriate post, please delete, mods.

If you decide to sell it for the 16GB price, I'd be interested. PM me if you do.

How come the Nexus 5 gets a release date on BBY but the LG G2 isn't listed yet? I guess just because of the hype?

IDK stock is in for the Nexus 5 and not the G2 maybe? Wait till Sunday and see if it says anything, that's when the new ads and everything roll out, new week.

You should eBay it or craigslist it for more and donate half of the profit to charity or s4gru :P just as long as you break even.

One thing I'm quite glad about here is that the phone uses a microSIM, rather than Apple's more proprietary nanoSIM form factor. That means I can actually swap my T-Mobile microSIM into the Nexus 5 right when it gets here, without having to make yet another form factor change that's honestly completely unnecessary.

 

At this point I'm counting down the (unknown) number of days before Sprint As You Go, Ting, Voyager Mobile or one of the other MVNOs offers a microSIM for purchase that's Sprint compatible. I won't break my contract for that of course, but it'll be nice to have the same flexibility that I have with T-Mobile (but with more coverage), and it's only a matter of time before it happens.

A few points I have to make.

 

  1. First off, the 4FF Nano-SIM standard is the 4th form factor SIM approved by the GSMA and 3GPP. While it heavily involved what Apple wanted, once the decision was made, it became an industry standard. 
  2. The Moto X also uses the nano sim. The iPhone 5, 5S, and 5C are not the only phones using the nano standard. I'm sure more phones will use the nano sim eventually. 

I hope you realize this is minor nitpicking on my part but I feel like it needed to be said for the people reading the forum.
