Recommended Posts

Mine just went pending! :D Nov 2 -3 with two day shipping.

Alright guys. I have hit rock bottom. I spent 30 minutes last night sewing extensions into my jeans pocket to make room for this phone. In case you are wondering, my mom taught me how to sew with her sewing machine when I was younger. Not perfect but I am pretty happy how it came out. My pockets were always too short anyways since I keep my wallet in my front left pocket rather than a back pocket.

Similar to http://bethsco.com/2013/05/making-pants-pockets-longer-the-easy-way.html in method. The fabric is hard to tell but it is basically some of that soft eyeglass wipe style fabric which is durable enough but also should be plenty soft

 

Edit: if anyone else wants to do something like this your local tailor or even drycleaners can do it for like $15 a pocket at most. I just had the fabric and easy access to a sewing machine (at $15 it isn't worth it to hand stitch)

That's awesome and very creative. I can't stand a phone in my pocket so I'll sick with a holder (fanny pack if you will, lol). It's kinda big but it works.

That's freaking awesome!  :tu:

 

My Nov 2-3 64GB Aluminium is still Preordered.  However, I did finally get my Project Fi invite.  So that SIM card is ordered and on its way.

Remember that joining Project Fi disables Google Voice capability -- I believe permanently -- on that Google account.

 

Just FYI...

Joining AT&T disabled my Google Voice capability. :(

It disabled your Google Voice integration capability.  And that is a sad loss.  I do not know how Sprint pulled off the coup of Google Voice integration that remains exclusive to this day.  It is an excellent feature.

 

However, you still could use Google Voice -- you just would have to sign up for a new Google Voice number.  I realize that is not convenient now.  It could have been convenient, though, a few years ago when you changed your phone number anyway.  Your new Google Voice number could have been your permanent number.

Yeah, I'm so unused to Google Voice after giving it up, that it's no loss to me now.

So someone broke the embargo on the Nexus 6P. The video is currently private but someone did capture it and created gifs of the video itself showing off the device! The graphite is really freakin nice! All the colors are good I guess you really can't go wrong!

Just curious, where are you seeing it show the ship date?  Do you mean shipping estimate?  Mine's standard shipping, which I believe is 2-5 days.  Did you purchase expedited shipping for your 6P?

I know this won't have WiFi-calling for Sprint, but I'm curious if they have fixed the no calls on WiFi connected to B41 network issue yet?  AFAIK, plagues the Moto X Pure and the Nexii still, right?

 

My coworker just bought hers yesterday on a whim.  Must be nice to have that kind of money, Jerry!

Does anyone know if the sim card from the Nexus 6 will work in the 6P, or do we need another sim card?

We've discussed this multiple times.

 

You need the sim card that is similar in the Moto X Pure Edition. 019962040146 is the product ID.

Thanks. After chatting with Sprint Int'l and digging through the thread my Nexus 6 sim card is the right one. I thought I was going to have to order another one.

This most certainly is NOT the correct answer.

 

You need a 4FF Nano CSIM V5.

I guess the data sheet the sprint int'l rep was wrong. He had a N6 data sheet, and 6P sheet up, and both had the same sku for the Sim. Thanks for the heads up.

      First Pixel device im somewhat excited about in a quite a while..

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?

      Hopefully we can finally start seeing some user feedback. So far so good! it is without a doubt the best device ive owned!!!

      Had not seen a thread for this yet, 
      I see some definite consumer advantages with Sprint's Network combined with TMob and Wi-fi.
      I have had many Nexus devices and I love my Nexus 6, although it is a bit big.
      The price is good for the service. ($20 / unl talk/txt, $10/gb)
       
      I hope the technical aspects work as they propose. I am a Google Voice Number user and love the "Any device" call capability and use it on my Tablet, Chromebook and phone. I rarely actually answer my Phone at the house. Answer the tablet or Chromebook.....
       
      I love Sprint's network, the upgrades they are putting forth and this Site, but if Project Fi works as advertised, it might lure me to sign on.....
       
      What are everyone's thoughts?
