Do you have a rough estimate of how much to ship it?

I'm with you! I already ordered off the Google Play store and have my Amazon return authorization printed out and ready to go.

What is the warranty on these, and can i get a damage plan on it?

Also, i cannot seem to find any threads on the battery life on the GSM nexus's, only thing i can find is on the sprint and verizon variations. ANy help?

Time to get rid of my OG galaxy S.

I'm giving my wife my T-Mobile GS2 and will be buying this Friday.

Going to be nice to be a part of the Nexus community!

I see this phone is unlocked which means it'll work on both AT&T and T-Mobile, but are we talking 3G on AT&T and crap on T-Mobile, or great speeds on T-Mobile and EDGE on AT&T? My understanding is that you can't get the fastest speeds on both carriers due to radio conflicts. I'm on T-Mobile so I need to know. Thanks!

Had I not dropped mine last night, it would also be going back in favor of one with a US warranty.

Oh well, them's the breaks.

BlindWolf8: It's penta-band HSDPA, so it works on T-Mobile and at&t both at high speed. I get 5-7Mbps downstream on both here in Tulsa, but T-Mobile's upload about double what I can get from at&t. I have at&t postpaid and a T-Mo prepaid SIM that I sometimes use.

You will get full EDGE, 3G, and HSPA+ "4G" on either AT&T or T-Mobile with this phone. It supports every single GSM/UMTS frequency. Buy it, put it on whatever carrier you want.
