Worth the wait?

So my phones been broken since August, and I have no backups. In other words, I haven't had a phone since mid-August. Anyway, I just got some money for my birthday and job. Should I wait until the Galaxy Nexus comes out for tmo in late November? If not, suggest getting any other phone?




EDIT:hmm alright. I need a phone.. Im trying not to spend the most amount of money because im going to buy the Nexus during christmas time, but can anyone steer me in the right direction in buying a used phone off craigslist? Preferably a decent one? Price Range $100-$275. I have T-mobile but any phone thats compatible whether its unlocked or not I'll be willing to get. I'm in jersey BTW, in case any of you want to give it a look.

If you have enough money to buy one unlocked for the full price, then you should hopefully have it by this month end.

If you are looking for tmo subsidized, then there is a possibility that you might have wait longer.

yea, I read through a bunch of pages in that thread. If I have to wait a week or two, I'll be fine with that... And I'm just going to root it assuming it will be possible as other Nexus phones were easily rooted..


Just not so sure if its hitting tmobile.. I dont come on here as much as I used to, but if you find ANY news having to do with tmo and the galaxy nexus or the release date, mind Pming me? thanks

Only you can decide for yourself which phone is best and what is "worth" the wait for you.

Just do the research and decide what's good for you.
