PSA: Sprint gives you more $$ for a T-Mobile Nexus 5, than a Sprint Nexus 5.

Using https://secure.sprintbuyback.com/cns/selector if you say your Nexus 5's carrier is Sprint, the trade in value is $97, saying it is T-Mobile, $150

 

And we all know that there is only one Nexus 5, Sprint and T-Mobile use the same exact model.

 

The site requires you to enter your phones serial number too after you select the phone, which makes this difference in pricing awk.

Either price is a total rip off, used nexus 5's in mint condition are still pulling $300 on ebay.

 

The prices on Ebay went up after the Nexus 6 announcement. 

 

Assuming the demand for them increased after people realized that the next Nexus was going to 6". 

 

I picked mine up a couple weeks prior to the N6 announcement in new condition for $210. Now you'll be lucky to get it for $275.

I think it was more so the fact that the nexus 6 turned out to damn near be twice the price as the nexus 5.  If the nexus 6 came in at under $400 then it would be different.

True, didn't think about cost.

Yeah, a 6" phone is just to big for me but if the nexus 6 came in at under $400 I would have bought it on day one for sure.

I should have invested in used Nexus 5 futures several months ago.  I could have been rich, bitch!

    • Interesting, T-Mobile is demolishing a Sprint B25-only site that even Sprint wasn't using anymore. Sprint moved from that pole to a former Clearwire site on a nearby much taller mast but never demolished this original site. Up through 2021, there was still power to this site. Some time during COVID, the lights on the RRUs were no longer lit.  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/ENR24-01067/Kirkland Streetview 
    • I noticed that on my Boost line. I ended up mapping some 2G on Cellmapper because of that lol. Looked like it would connect to T-Mobile 2G for a bit and then disconnect and show no signal. Thankfully it's back up and running.
    • Outside expert explanations of AT&T outage: https://www.lightreading.com/mobile-core/at-t-s-outage-twists-up-its-mwc-story
    • Service just restored in Columbus Ohio on AT&T network.  They seemed to do it in the following order: business (done early) then 5g hours later then ADSL and 4g about 4 hours after business. Then texting and wifi calling that was not setup before. At one point they were trying to route calls on T-Mobile 2g, but that failed.
    • Nationwide AT&T outage occurring right now affecting all of their brands, MVNOs, and even FirstNet. Although this kind of outage is rare, I bet Verizon and T-Mobile are both gonna try to use this to pull First Responders to their network or at least consider them for backup services. https://www.theverge.com/2024/2/22/24079910/att-network-outage-sos-mode
