T-Mobile Nexus 4 out of stock… again

by: Chris SmithJanuary 25, 2013


Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but the Nexus 4 is out of stock. I’m not talking about the Google Play Store, which is one place you still can’t buy the device from no matter how hard Google and LG are working to pump out more devices.

I’m talking about T-Mobile, the fourth largest carrier in the U.S. and the only one that stocks Google’s fourth-gen Nexus. Well, it doesn’t stock it anymore as it has sold it out again, but in theory, it’s the only U.S. carrier selling the handset from time to time.

Just a few days ago we told you that T-Mobile stores were receiving Nexus 4 stock, but it looks like the new units ran out almost as fast as they came in. We have no idea when the handset will be back in stock with the mobile operator, but we’re certainly keeping our ear to the ground for more news.

Meanwhile, if you’re going to Canada and/or Korea soon, you may be able to pick one up from Fido and Videotron, and SK Telecom and Korea Telecom, respectively.

    ok ok ok we get it! it’s an on and off situation but thank you :)

  • 750,000+ already

    it’s back online in the T-Mobile stock with an IN STOCK message

  • 750,000+ already

    As of January 22nd, the 752,000th device have been produced according to XDA-Developers poster who poke the serial number on LG database.

    October: 70,000 devices produced
    November: 90,000
    Dec: 210,000
    January: on track for 550,000+ (385,000 as of January 22nd)

    Which mean that LG is ramping up production in a very big way. But it could take up to 14-20 days from getting from production line to your house.

    Example from post #338 on XDA-Developers [INFO] LG Nexus 4 Production Date and Place Identification thread
