Google/LG Nexus 5 LTE phone *sold*
« on: February 09, 2014, 10:06:15 PM »
About a month old. Absolutely perfect condition with zero defects. 16gb. Multi-carrier support, though I purchased it from T-Mobile. This phone, and Android 4.4 Kit Kat wholly an fairly kicks ass. ( http://chrishornberger.com/2014/01/t-mobile-and-the-nexus-5-an-experiment/ )

I got it to test out T-Mobile and after finding they'll work just fine, I started a new T-Mobile account and got in on the "We'll pay your termination fees" so I can retire my Verizon account. That makes this phone redundant and superfluous; I'd really live to recover the cash. Priced to sell quick.

$250 shipped to the CON US 48.

Thanks.

This is GSM only right? No CDMA (Verizon)?

You can still answer my question although I probably already know the answer. :bigok:

The phone and the internal radio are *capable* of Verizon's implementation of LTE and of CDMA, however Verizon - shitbag company that they are - won't authorize the Nexus line for use on their network. They'll tell you "pending verification of network compliance", when the real reason is, they can't add their own software to it. The only reason they sell the iPhone (which they also can't junk up) is because Apple swings a bigger "f&*k you" dick than Google/LG, and they wanted in on that sweet, sweet AT&T-only iPhone money before Android started taking over the world.

The odd thing is Verizon did sell the Nexus 4.

It was similarly delayed, at first, but for some reason the Nexus 5 phone and the 7 tablet are causing all kinds of consternation. :shrug:
