I have a Exhibit II on the $30/5gb/100 min Monthly 4G.
Simply remove the SIM and insert in the Nexus and it's good to go?
Exhibit II is my first GSM and smart phone, so I have zero experience in swapping around SIM cards.
Thanks for any feedback.
That said.. I am considering going back to an S II or possibly an S III if I can justify the price. Why? The camera on the S II is far superior. I take a lot of pictures and it didn't occur to me that the S II camera was just really good. Other plusses to the S II/III is TouchWiz (I hate HTC's Sense, but love TouchWiz), HSPA+ 42 (compared to 21 on the Nexus) and better battery life. I am getting 10-12 hours on the Nexus compared to 12-15 on the S II.
Don't get me wrong, the Nexus is a GREAT phone. The HD screen makes a huge difference (will miss that if I go back to the S II!) and everything is so smooth and fluid since there's no T-Mobile crapware running. If you don't take a ton of pics -- or haven't been spoiled by the S II's camera -- the Nexus' camera is decent.
Castrol EDGE 5W-30 is my drug of choice.

Thank you for the feedback.
It is amazing how many folks juggle and swap around phones.
Guess that's the beauty of GSM, which is one of the things that made the T-Mobile Monthly 4G very enticing.
Exhibit II has been a great Android starter phone for me and things can only get better when I get to choose from one of Google's range of clutter-free models.
I'm kind of excited to see what Google rolls out at the end of the year for their Nexus phones. It'll be the perfect combination to go with the Monthly4G plans
I must say it's more than 'kind of' for me.
As a lifelong Mac user who did not jump on the iPhone bandwagon and held out on Android smartphones until T-Mobile came up with Monthly 4G and the Exhibit II, Google's move into the hardware business is a big deal for me and I am sure for many others. Carriers and Apple no doubt are on high alert over this game changing development that can only mean good things for consumers.
Hopefully there will be some product announcements before the end of the year.
Does this Nexus have screen issues? I can't find the link ATM but I recall reading recently a thread else where about issues with the screens. I'll have to look it up again.
There's a thread on xda-developers in which some people complain about screen issues. I'm very happy with my GNex and, from other threads, believe those complaining are a small minority and, for the most part, are being too picky (e.g., one person complained about problems with the screen almost off that could only be seen in a dark room)
I find the screen to be very crisp. I love it, actually. Colors are a bit saturated, but it looks good. It is usable in direct sun and has very high pixel density. And blacks look very dark. Plus the screen is huge.
I just received this phone on Friday and it is amazing. I don't see anything bad about the screen it looks great. The only issue I have is that my accelerometer is slightly off and there is no calibration setting like in the Samsung Exhibit 2 4g. I would like to no if anyone also has or had this issue and if there is a way to fix it. I will try to contact Google support and see if they know how to fix it.
