Tmonews has leaked a T-Mobile retail partner sales FAQ in which it is explicitly states that T-Mobile will never again stock the Nexus One in their retail stores.


This would seem to be the last nail in the coffin for the Nexus One’s US tour, though it is still sold abroad in the UK and South Korea. While the document doesn’t explicitly preclude the possibility of online sales, “The Nexus One was sold and marketed by Google” is pretty damning.

Also, this document is addressed towards brick-and-mortar retailers, and thus it wouldn’t be relevant to mention T-Mobile’s online sales policy. I think it is safe to assume, though, that you won’t be seeing the Nexus One on T-Mobile’s web store anytime soon.

    I will soon be selling my mint Nexus One barely a few months old with box and the works. I am switching to Sprint and can't use it anymore. Leave me a comment if someone might be interested in buying in about 2 months lol

    Nexus one will never be sold via T-mobile because of the Free Wifi Tethering feature enable in Android 2.2.

    T-mobile or any other carrier dont want to give tethering option to any of their phones.

    If you have a Nexus One already you are lucky to have one.. I recommended hold on to as long as you can. Right now in the mod community all their are doing is porting Nexus One rom to all other phones. I way why get just the software where it take some technical expertise to install and hassle of bricking your phone just get a Nexus One.. if you can find one!

      Um... "free tethering" isn't exclusive to the Nexus One. It's a 2.2 feature, as you said, and *all devices* capable of running 2.2 will have that option (unless the firmware is specifically modded to remove it). My rooted G1 has it. Yes, a Nexus One is the "popular" one since it gets the 2.2 updates officially from Google first, but the modding community has ported 2.2 to many other phones.

    If anyone wants a T-Mobile Nexus One direct from Google, you can pay $25 to join the Google Developer network, and order it for the $529 price point as a developer phone.
