In hand, unopened, unlocked GSM phone ready to ship for $400 in BTC.

I love this phone, but the 2 things that I love the most are that the only vendor bloatware that comes on this phone are the standard Google apps and that the Wifi hotspot works right in the OS without checking with the carrier first to see if you have paid for the extra wireless tethering plan. USB tethering also works with Windows without needing any software or driver add-ons. So far I haven't found a reason to need to root it. My only gripe (as with everyone else) is that it doesn't have a MicroSD add on slot, but I don't carry around a lot of pictures or music.

Grab a StraightTalk, T-Mobile, other prepaid microsim and cut your phone bill in 1/2 or even 1/3.

I've run speedtests on my Nexus 4, with the HSPA+, and I was getting 15Mbps download, and 2Mpbs up. No, it doesn't have LTE, but the data speeds are plenty fast.

Yes prices fluctuate, sometimes to fast to keep up with. Changed to USD value.

Where I live it's pretty hilly, but I get 4-5M down and 2M up on average. Since I only pay $45/mo right now, it's good enough for me. I have a coworker that got a Nexus 4 after checking mine out and sold his Galaxy Note II in favor of the Nexus 4.

It is a unlocked GSM phone, so it will work work with any GSM network around the world, provided they support the radio frequencies of the phone. In the USA that is AT&T and T-Mobile and any prepaid carrier that use their network.

Ya I'm using it with ST for only $45/month as well, so I'm happy with it. I was really looking at the Note II, but they're so damn expensive to find an unlocked one (or even one I could unlock myself), it wasn't worth it.

I was originally looking at an unlocked SIII, but the preloaded apps that you can't remove without rooting annoyed me away from it. The price was a little steep and the fact that I can buy a global unlocked SIII on NewEgg, but US support wouldn't let people register it for warranty support is Unacceptable. The Nexus hasn't given me a reason to root it yet.
I have another coworker, other than the one that sold his Note II, that got Note II's for both himself and his wife. I don't like how big it is. It's a small tablet and even comes with a stylus. BTW he's envious of my Nexus 4 that does wifi and usb tethering out of the box. He got the Note II's on a deal with Sprint, so he's locked in to CDMA for at least a year.

I will cover reasonable shipping in the US. I am willing to ship international if someone wants to pay shipping for it. I found out that shipping and import tax to Europe wasn't worth it for the buyer though.

I've updated that thread, pasted here for completeness:

We received the phone as described today and it works fine.  The only challenging part was we had to go to T-Mobile and switch to the newer, smaller SIM card but they switched it out for free and my wife is now up and running on her new phone.

Thanks for the fast shipping and great communication!
