This might just be one of the better deals we've seen in a while. Lets Talk is offering the Nexus 4 for $85 on a new 2-year T-Mobile contract. Enter the coupon code "TALK4TEN" (no quotes) during checkout and you can knock another $8.50 off that (money's money, right?) for a grand total of $76.50. Not bad!

Existing customers can get the handset for $155 before the coupon code which will take $15.50 off for a total of $140, which isn't too bad of a deal, either. It's still worth noting that both options require a two-year commitment, while the contract-free version you can get from the Play store is only $350 (less if you don't mind 8GB). $76 is a steep enough discount to possibly warrant the subsidy, but $140 begins to push it. Also, keep in mind that you face an ETF with T-Mobile and Lets Talk if you buy this way.

    "the contract-free version you can get from the Play store is only $350" If you can wait to get one.

      At least you only need to wait a few weeks now that it's in stock and shipping. It hasn't gone out of stock for like a week now, so Google has a solid supply. My guess is the wait is for handling - they have to ship a lot of orders with only a certain number of employees.

        The good thing is I finally broke down and got one at T-Mobile, and by the way it is the best phone ever.

      Lol would that actually work?

        If they don't make you pay the first month immediately, it will. I checked their early termination fee to make sure. You save About 75 bucks this way.

          Did you check Let's Talk's ETF as well?

          • Mike

            I was actually planning on doing that, ETF is $200 for T-Mobile AND $250 for Let's Talk. Adding to a grand total of $526 assuming they don't charge for the first month of service. No thank you.

      Let's Talk has a separate ETF, just like Amazon Wireless, Wirefly, etc. You weren't the first one to think of this.

    i love this phone but i would NEVER sign a contract for it. anyone that does is a BIG TIME sucker

    AP, this isn't a "deal". Please, stop posting contracts.

    no expandable storage and only about 10gb after OS. i feel sorry for people scrambling to buy this

    Lets break down the number numbers since the dopes at AP decided not to mention that T-mobile is phasing out classic plans next month so you would be a fool to take this "deal"

    Value Plan $59.99 (Talk + Text + 2GB) x 24 Months = 1439.76 + 350 (Nexus 4 32GB) = $1789.76
    Classic Plan $79.99 (Talk + Text + 2GB) x 24 Month = 1919.76 + 84.99 (Nexus 4) = $2000.75

    Price Difference: $214.99

    Lets say you bought the 8GB version of the Nexus 4 ($299) instead, that brings the savings to $314.99. That means you could buy TWO Nexus 4 Devices purely on the price difference alone.
