I'm interested - I've been crossing the country spending no dollars on the Bitcoin Roadtrip, and I've recently been having phone troubles with my old T-Mobile G1. I've been eyeing the Nexus S as it seems to be the top of the line current gen.

Completed listings on Ebay for unlocked phones are going for $325-$450 USD. Would you consider dropping the price to help support my Bitcoin Roadtrip? I'd pay 45 bitcoins shipped.

Also, do you have Ebay feedback or similar to bootstrap your reputation?
Cheers,
PLATO

edit - I assume I can root and tether this?
edit 2 - looks like there's several model numbers. Since it's GSM I assume it's not Sprint CDMA, and therefore is not 4G? Also, looking at some wiki pages, it seems that some models don't have microSD slots. Can you identify the model number?

This phone was designed for T-Mobile's network. Smiley

That didn't answer the question. Did you get 3G on ATT's network? (Hint: The answer is no.)

you asked if the phone was 3g - i said yes. And yes, I have used in on ATT AND GOTTEN 3G. But, because it seems like enquiring minds want to know, this was in Vancouver, CA.

Im in the market for a nexus s, but the price is a bit steep for me right now.

Hope it goes to a good home, and that you are not a scammer Tongue

wow - how has answering all of your questions AND going above and giving you more info than requested evidence of a SCAM?  This is NOT a good first experience trying to sell an item for BTC!!! I'm not sure how much I have to do here, i posted the model number and i described the product accurately as it is not activated now and I cannot test 3g on any network.

  It would be easier for me to sell via ebay with my stellar profile : http://myworld.ebay.com/tomatosauce but instead I have attempted this little foray into BTC.  

 I'll be selling for fiat on ebay as I have previously until there is a viable way to sell items for BTC without trolls undermining sales.

It's because you're giving bad or incomplete information.

What country did you import this phone from?

clarification: I bought it in the US, I had  tmobile with no plan, and my service was 3g. I used it briefly in Vancouver and I believe it was 3g on ATT. I call google/samsung and verify what networks the phone has 3g on and report back.

tmobile uses AWS bands and it will not work 3G with any gsm carriers (source: I had a nexus one from tmobile using it on a gsm carrier)

I am totally comfortable selling this as Edge only for non Tmobile GSM in the US - thats fine. I guess this is the real story? Onward to ebay - if either of the two PM offers I have received here to don't work out...

Makes somewhat more sense now. The US version of this phone is NOT capable of 3G data on AT&T network, so when you said it did, I got very suspicious.
