I am having a hard time getting answers and hope someone can help. I have the HTC Wildfire s which I have grown out of and want to get the latests Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ with jelly bean 4.1 purchased from an American friend and shipped up here to me.
I know about the phone look up tool but I don't have an IMEI ID because I don't have the phone.
My question is has anyone got the Galaxy Nexus on prepaid? Are there any issues or am I good to go?
I have found out that Virgin won't sell just the phone which I would be willing to buy even at the inflated price and I have hit road blocks as they seem to not want to support or offer any guidance and why should, I know it is just business.
Any help or clarification would be much appreciated.
Thank you so much
Just wanted to update my thread here.
I am on the $35/mo virginmobile prepaid plan with 150 anytime minutes, unlimited incoming, weekends + evenings from 7pm and text to Can & US and 100mb of data for $10 which I absolutely love, it is a great deal.
I ended up purchasing a Galaxy Nexus off ebay for $426 tax in as I was not allowed to purchase a GNex outright unless I was on a contract. I made sure the ebay seller was legit.
Anyways the phone is great and I was able to switch my HTC Wildfire S sim card and put it in my GNex and it worked perfectly with no problems whatsoever.
It was running Android 4.01 and I was able to update fairly easy following instructions from "theandroidsoul*com/update-galaxy-nexus-jro03h-jelly-bean-aosp-rom-android-4-1-1/" something I have never attempted before and now I am running the latest Android build which will update itself when an update is available.
I travel to Ireland from time to time and I will now be able to purchase a sim card and use my phone when abroad.
This is such a convenience and I hope is a sign of things to come.
I've used the GN (bought in Europe) with a Dutch sim, GB sim, Tru sim, Rogers and Telus. It all works and so to the other Canadian providers
I will never, ever go into a contract and pay $20/m MORE for 3 years just to finance a phone... I pick 'm up unlocked for $400 oversees and sell them two years later for half that.
