Nexus S on AT&T? (With Contract)

Postposted on Tue Sep 13, 2011 6:59 pm

I have decided to change my carrier because Verizon is being a royal jerk. I have choosen between AT&T and Sprint. At first I was going to go with Sprint because I saw they had a Nexus S (with a contract) for $30! I later found out that AT&T has better reception in my area, so I checked their site out. Even though the Nexus S just nearly came out, I can't find it on their site at all.

Did they discontinue it or am I just going crazy? I couldn't get any help from AT&T because you have to be a client to speak with a representative in chat.

Looks to be Sprint only. What I have found with Samsung is they target specific carriers with unique model names and outer shells, but the guts are similar/same such as the Galaxy S.

Nexus S is for Sprint only (the CDMA radio won't work on AT&T's GSM network).

The Android phones for AT&T aren't that great, they won't even be getting the Galaxy S II phones next month. Infuse gets you LTE (at $200) and I think the Atrix is better now after a few updates (and only $100).

My bad, AT&T will get the Galaxy S II, it's Verizon that doesn't have one in the works.

The Nexus S 3G has been available for AT&T for a few months now. The Nexus is weird in that Google doesn't sell it through the AT&T store, and you have to buy the phone through Best Buy. Google keeps pretty quiet about the phone, so the best place to get information about it is to check the Google Nexus website.
