Nexus One Pricing for Existing T-Mobile Customers 

So here's the deal, the Nexus One sells for $529 unlocked, $179 for eligible new customers signing a 2-year contract with T-Mobile. And as for existing subscribers upgrading to the Nexus One (Google/T-Mobile says no to Family Plan), they will be able to get it at a discounted price: 

  • $279 - Nexus One with new, 2-year T-Mobile US service plan for qualifying existing T-Mobile customers who are adding data plan.
  • $379 - Nexus One with new, 2-year T-Mobile US service plan for qualifying existing T-Mobile customers who are upgrading their data plans.

The Google Phone Store will automatically check if you're eligible for the discounted price.

Here's some math for you (Thanks, Russell):

$279 + $80/month x 24 months = $2199
$379 + $80/month x 24 months = $2299
Unlocked - $529 + $60/month x 24 months = $1969

How is this discounted ??? They're worse than if you either buy an unlocked phone, or cancel your plan and then reopen a new one....how can either of these options be a "discount' of any sort is ridiculous !! It's absolutely ridiculous.

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMarcelo L

Unless you are on a family plan http://tinyurl.com/yzmf5xt Google Hates Families. You cannot upgrade if you are on a family even if you are eligible for one!

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPete Figueroa

do we still have to change the plan?

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterswaney

Yea but then you would have to take the required $80/ month plan with no option to use the cheapest even more + plan at $60/month.

$279 + $80/month x 24 months = $2199
$379 + $80/month x 24 months = $2299
$529 + $60/month x 24 months = $1969

Just making sure everyone knows all of their options before jumping in headfirst, not that anyone does the math on phone contracts.

This is a bunch of crap, I am not eligeble for an upgrade as I am on a family plan. No matter how I go about it I am paying more than $500. If I change my plan, its 180 plus 360=15/month for 24 months or 530 now & keep rate plan low. Think its B.S. but whatever. Thanks for nuthin T-Mo & google

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJoseph DeProspero

I have been with T-Mo for a little over 3 years now and I am still using the DASH I got then. My current plan has 1500 anytime min for $40, unlimited Internet for $20, and 300 texts for $5 a month. In order to get this phone at ANY (more on this in a moment) discount I have to downgrade my plant to 500 min for the same $40 and downgrade to unlimited web and texts for $40...or $15 a month more for 1000 minutes less. On top of that my penalty...err ahh…reward for being a good, paying, 3+ year T-Mobile customer (with 2 lines) is that I actually have to pay $379 for the phone since I already have a voice and data plan on my account. (If I only had a voice plan I would have to $279... still a $100 penalty). The information on the real pricing is here: www.google.com/support/android/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=171784

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermrbill

or, you could cancel your existing, pay the ETF (200) and buy it with 2 year plan at 179.

making it: 379 + 80/ mo.

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkikaider01

Now I guess I have made up my mind. For months I have been thinking about replacing my 2G iPhone, but since we have sweet plan with ATT for being the first iPhone owners, it is holding me back to switch. So if Google and T-mobile will be so stingy about their plans and prices, I guess this will lean me more back to just wait it out and see if they'll be more lenient about the price and especially family plans.

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBogartOfElCajon

this is BS; I've been w/ T-Mobile for 4 yrs, and I don't get the advertised $180 phone?? My upgrade price would be $279 for the phone + $80/mo service plan.

As an aside, I believe Russel is correct, the $60/mo plan is not available with Nexus One.

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKsenia

And how much is the discount if you have to DOWNGRADE your plan with the phone? Sometimes it seems as though the people responsible for devising this idiocy are, well... The unlocked price looks good considering one keeps the idiots out of the equation. I have been a "good, paying" T-Mobile customer from the 1st day they entered the US market, having been with VoiceStream since 2000. I have NEVER purchased a discounted phone from them and the most I have been offered is a PATHETIC $50. They value new customers more than existing customers, but $160 isn't much to pay for the peace of mind that comes with being able to tell them to 'piss off' without penalties.

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterwayneNtampa

What? I have been a loyal T-Mobile customer for over 5 years, and I'm due for a phone upgrade. I can't get any discount because I'm on a family plan??

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBethL

GOOGLE GOOGLE GOOGLE....... what about upgraders who bought the phone outright because there was no option to go on a plan??? Loyal upgraders on the other side of the globe who are biting their nails in anticipation of a possible 'nother 3 months wait.... COME ON GOOGLE - include us with A DISCOUNTED UPGRADE on outright purchases PUHLEASE!!!

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterReality

Real question on Family plan is whether T-Mobile will allow data usage on the Nexus using one of their existing data plans or not. I don't mind paying the full unsubsidized price if that's the case as it will come out cheaper in the end.

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commentersucks2bdroid

This is a bunch of BUNK. After talking with t-mobile (who was admittedly apologetic for not knowing what was going on), then getting transferred to HTC, then transferred back to T-mobile, I find out that I have to pay the unlocked price EVEN though I'm willing to resign a two year agreement simply because we currently have a Family Plan, EVEN THOUGH OUR CONTRACT IS EXPIRED. I've been a customer w/ t-mobile for over two years and now I have to pay the full retail and don't even have the option of entering into an agreement. Everyone I've spoken with keeps telling me "the price the website gives you is the price you have to pay", but the website says I have to pay $529 and won't let me create a new account because I'm an existing customer. The Google Phone Store blows. This "discount" blows and is an insult. Does anyone with a brain work at T-mobile or Google? Or are they fine with relegating common sense with whatever a website says?

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMlatta

What about if you buy the unlocked nexus one and simply add a T-Mobile Web plan for $24.99 (same as the one for Droid or Click)? Since it's unlocked, does T-mobile care? Or even know? What about for ATT?

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJackNYC

All right people, quit your bitching. T-mobile never told you that they are going to carry this phone. Furthermore, they don't have it in their system, on their website or anywhere else. What they will do though is give Google some money if Google manages to get them new customers on certain plan. Noone promised you any certain pricing on this, you believed what you wanted to believe. Me? I'll be buying let's say TP2 at discount, turn around and sell it for more and use that money to get N1 thus keeping my plan and getting some discount off retail price.

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommentereYe

@eYe: You're right. Expecting a company to know about what they are selling and then assist you in purchasing their product is clearly "bitching". And trying to purchase the product according to the terms of the agreement and then being told, well, nothing at all because no one seems to know what's going on? You are right: this is just how business is conducted. Clearly, my expectations are too high. I appreciate your setting me straight.

Im gonna get the unlocked version Q Will iI be able to switch the sim back & forth between my old phone & the nexus for work purposes?

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMike

what is everyones issue with the price? have you not seen the prices of other phones out there? mytouch and the g1 are 399. touch pro is 529. are you telling me that the nexus one is not worth another 129 over the mytouch or g1? um....it is. on this post/site and other sites people keep asking the same things over and over again. we know the price...we know the service it will work on and the ones it wont...thats it.

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterafine

and lets not forget the people complaining about their contracts. when you signed up you knew what you were getting into. now you are mad because you want a new phone and want that subsidized like the first one you got when you signed up. hellooooooo...it does not work that way. next time dont sign a contract that states all of this to begin with. you want a new phone...buy it....529 and you dont have to change anything. if you buy a new car do you really think the dealer is going to give you the new model when it comes out? computers are outdated from the day you buy it...so maybe we should all just get new computers for free?

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterafine

Ok to everyone who says that people are complaining about contracts they knew they were getting into, here my story, tell me if I knew what i was getting into.

Just signed up for the Even More Plus plan. This plan is $10 less per month than the Even More plans, and you're not locked into a contract. The only catch? You must pay retail price for your phones, but you can pay for your phone spread over 20 months. For someone that likes to have newer phones but can't exactly shell out half a grand all at once, this is a great deal. Only problem? TMobile and Google will not allow you to spread payments for this phone, even though you can get a subsidized phone if you're a new customer. To me, they are dropping the ball big time and missing out on a golden opportunity by alienating certain TMobile customers that are now left with a bad taste in their mouths. In many ways I feel duped into signing up for a plan that is now limiting my ability to have the phone that I want.

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKR

"tell me if I knew what i was getting into" "The only catch? You must pay retail price for your phones, but you can pay for your phone spread over 20 months" "Only problem? TMobile and Google will not allow you to spread payments for this phone"

this is your quote. you answered your own question. you know exactly what you are up against and yet you still ask this. it is black and white. you can not spread out payments for the nexus one. you know this. so what is your issue? get a mytouch or a g1 or a cliq. solves your issue...again... the issue you are aware of.

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterafine

afine: What I was getting into was a plan where I could purchase a phone and spread out payments over 20 months, if I can't do that with the Nexus One then i'm not getting what was expected of the plan I signed up for. They say it's because it's sold through Google, yet they still sell a subsidized version with a 2-year contract. Who's the contact through? TMobile. You say I answered my own question? I haven't in the slightest. Please, enlighten me on how somehow I was supposed to expect them to pull this. I'm not asking for a subsidized phone, i'm asking for an affordable option that was promised to me when I chose my service plan.

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKR

I posted a similar but much more detailed analysis on pricing here. I basically came to the same conclusion, but my post covers a lot of the details of getting out of contracts, details the available rate plans, analyzes huge extra savings you can gain using Google Voice for SMS, etc.

Follow me on Twitter.

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLuke

i'm not on a contract, nor have i had a subsidized phone from t-mobile.

i'm still not eligible for $180 price.

how's that for fair, when *new* customers can get the full discount. that's what is pissing me off. that they weren't upfront about it.

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKsenia

kr...first of all you are misleading everyone with your post. the only way tmobile does the 20 month payment thing is when you sign up and buy the phone at the same time. they extend to you a credit line that acts as a no interest financing program as long as you pay the payment over 20 months. but when you signed up you would have had to be buying a phone to even ask for the credit line. they do not allow you to sign up and then buy the 1st phone later using the credit line. they do however allow you to use this line of credit to the fullest.

example. if you are given a $1000 credit line you can buy up to $1000 worth of phone/phones and they will divide the total throughout the 20 months. but you still needed to buy a phone with the service. therefore, i do not in any way believe you were ever mislead in any way of thinking you could buy the nexus one with this plan. and tmobile, according to you, told you that you could not finance the nexus because they dont sell it.

admit it...you did not actually sign up for the plan. you were just trying to complain about something you could not do, and you wanted everyone to think, aww poor guy signed up for a plan and now cant get the phone he wanted..i call shenanigans. don't try to debate me...you'll lose.

why dont we all go to a ford dealer, apply for a car, get an ok, and then ask where the ferrari is on the lot....they dont sell them.

January 5, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterafine

ksenia, do you not understand how business works? tmobile is obviously paying google a kick back for signing people up who are new to tmobile. that is why "new" customers get the full discount. why would tmobile offer google more money to sell a phone to existing customers when they already have you as one? they are going to pay google something because if you do buy the phone through them you will still get a discount but you have to resign a 2 year contract.

it is simple math. new customer....$80 a month for tmobile. whereas, an existing customer upgrade does not necessarily make them any more money at all. especially if the existing customer had no plans to leave tmobile.

January 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterafine

afine, check your facts, I don't intend to argue with you here but you are wrong. Dead wrong. I switched from a myfaves plan to the Even More Plus after careful consideration. When I was weighing the benefits from the Even More and Even More Plus, I calculated the cost difference between the monthly savings on EMP and paying retail for a phone, no contract, vs. the EM plan, contracted, more expensive monthly, but subsidized phones. The EMP, in addition to, yes, the ability to spread your phone purchase over 20 months, was the deciding factor for me. Knowing that a phone such as the Nexus One was just around the corner I wanted to take advantage of this. Spending $529 for the N1 on the EMP is still a cost savings over 2 years, but dropping half a grand up front is exactly what I wanted to avoid.

If you have some documentation to prove me otherwise feel free to bring it the table. I'd like to see where you are getting your info. My info comes straight from several TMobile reps that I have spoken to.

"Additionally the FlexPay / equipment installment plan is now available, letting you break up the cost of your phone into interest-free monthly bills."

January 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKR

kr get a clue. how many posts are out there that have told you over and over agian that the phone will be sold by google, not tmobile. you knew going into this that you would not be able to buy the phone and subsidise it through tmobile. its easy...go get a credit car and buy the phone. find a card with a no interest or a low interest amount and pay them over 20 months. tmobile does not give you a credit to buy phones they do not sell, if that was the case a lot of people would be using unlocked iphones on tmobile and paying them off in their contracts. (regardless of 3g compatibility)

again it is simple....tmobile does not sell the phone, and nobody ever told told you that they did or would. as a matter of fact you were told the complete opposite. shenanigans!

January 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterafine

and one last thing to you kr. i bought the nexus one and paid the full price. i will be on the 79.99 plan and have unlimited everthing: talk, text and data. you cant do that when you get the 180 price from google. it costs you the same per month with only 500 minutes. if i wanted a subsidized phone i would have had to buy what tmobile sells to get it, mytouch, cliq, etc.

and i can leave tmobile anytime i want because it is contract free, and then i can sell the nexus if i want and get some of my money back. which is exactly what i am doing with my current phone.

January 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterafine

The PROBLEM IS:

T-Mobile purposely switched it's data network to a frequency only THEY use.
T-Mobile purposely has sh**ty phones in order to rake you over on this one.
If you buy this phone unlocked, for T-Mobile, it will ONLY work with T-Mobile because of it's network frequencies. If you put it on ebay, it will only sell to a T-Mobile customer.
I was told in my contract an merchant info I could upgrade my phone at a discount. I have been with T-mobile for over 5 years. I have never upgraded through THEM. Always bought my phones (MDA & iPhone 2G).
For them to pull this sh** is a good excuse to leave.

THIS IS A TROJAN HORSE. OVER-HYPE/UNDER-DELIVER / STEAL MONEY FROM YOU

All for a slow 3G network. I'll stick with my 2G iPhone or leave them.

F' Google too. Constant F'ups on GrandCentral/Google Voice since they bought it out.

January 6, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSYm Tum

Does anyone know for sure whether the phone supports Google Voice / SMS on a data only plan; as per the original rumor?

January 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterfeks

Seems that the Nexus One/T-Mobile combo is solely aimed at those who don't worry about finances. Maybe this is to create a "foothold situation" before creating plans that actually make sense and are affordable.
Oh...wait...there's a Telecom involved...NO deals!

January 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterderalaand

HAHAHAHAA. this is too funny. IF you have a recent android phone and its getting 2.1 in the near future, you might as well wait. There's not much difference in performance especially if you have Sense UI. Check out what they have said at cnet, this is nothing more than a pretty new device but nothing special. If you want the latest and greatest, well then there is no such thing, every 3 months there will be a "latest and greatest" so whats the big deal. Get a phone that you are comfortable with and keep it moving, cause at the end of the day it is just that, A PHONE!!!!!!

At the end of the day its just a phone. The N1 is nothing different than the droid, hero/eris or anything else. If you are wanting to play games, or have 3D or something other than that, its a great device. But for EVERYTHING else that you use a cell phone for, its business as usual. Every android device that is getting upgraded to 2.1 will operate just as well for the most part. This is not a reinvention of the wheel here. IMO what matters to me is can I do what I need to do when I need to do it, network reliability and all that. T-Mobile is NOT, I REPEAT, IS NOT one of the best networks to be on. So for that and that alone, its really nothing to me other than a new phone, in which there will probably be plenty more of them released in the coming months. Im not about the latest and greatest, just give me what I want and make it reliable.

FYI, I have the Sprint Hero and I love it, as well as the network its on. I've had this phone for 3 months and a blackberry world edition for a year prior to that, and NOT ONE SINGLE DROPPED CALL EVER!!!! And my download/upload speed is on par with any other network out there.

@blue802

Im sorry to hear about your health. Keep you head up and please don't stress over this stuff. You have alot more on your plate than worrying about a phone. You have my prayers and I hope things will be great for you and your family.

January 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterswaze

swaze....do you really believe blue802? i do agree with you that the n1 is just a phone. i bought one, but i was switching plans from another carrier to tmobile. i was going to do it months ago but i found the rumors about some of the new phones...hd2, se xperia10 etc. i was going to wait for one of those and then out came the n1.

your sprint hero without a contract has a price of $479. just because you probably got a discount for the phone for singning a 2 year contract does not mean you did not pay for the phone. honestly i like the hero and was about to sign up for sprint just before the google n1 news came out. i would have however been paying $99 with sprint vs. $79 with tmobile. but i will admit sprint has some cool features like sprint tv, but no data and talk unless you are on wifi...this is a big thing for me.

has no one realized that the cost of the phone is now, and has always been figured into the monthly service. the only big difference is that tmobile is actually willing to lower the montly plan price if you buy the phone, whereas sprint, att, verizon and other companies continue to bill you the same regardless. tmobile charges $20 more per month if you subsidise the phone with a 2 year contract...that is atleast $480 (not including taxes on the $20) added on to whatever you initially payed for the phone. example mytouch you pay 149 for then add 480...it seems like you will pay more for a mytouch then for the n1 if you subsidize it.

montly services like metropcs also make you buy the phones and they completely suck compared to 99% of phones on other services. and they are super limited in what you can do and get. this is why i am leaving them. and you still pay close to $400 for their best phone. the n1 is worth a lot more than the $129 difference, and is probably worth the $50 difference from the hero. and then in comparison to your hero i save $20 a month and no 2 year contract.

think about this....your hero cost you at least $179 with a contract...you pay $99 a month for the unlimited plan...for 24 months....vs $79...and in 2 years you pay $659 dollars (20x24 + 179)...i pay $529 for the nexus. 659-529=130. i save $130 over the two years and after the dust clears i keep paying $79 a month vs Sprints $99. and i did not figure in the taxes on the difference. every year i will save at least $240 in service alone.

in short....stop complaining...if you dont want to pay the money for the nexus.....get something else. mytouch, g1, cliq, behold 2, or just keep waiting for something that tmobile sells.....THEY ARE NOT SELLING THE N1...GOOGLE IS. and if they did, you would pay more for it in the long run, just like all of the other phones they sell.

January 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterafine

@afine

You bring up very valid points. But the difference is I have unlimited minutes and there is no way I could survive on 500 minutes only. I use my phone because I don't want a landline in the house, so its my only communitcation for "talking". And like I said, as far as performance there is not a HUGE difference, especially once I have 2.1 running with Sense UI on my hero. Its all about preference actually.

As far as Blue802, yea I guess I believe him, I don't know too many people who would make up something so severe about themselves. But hey, it is what it is.

January 6, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterswaze

I'm a little bothered by the fact that I've been a TMo customer for well over 4 years (not under contract), even enrolled in the customer loyalty program and offered a free upgrade to any TMo phone but do not qualify for the $180 N1. I realize it is sold by Google but given that I've been offered a free upgrade but can't use it for this phone is a let down (Can't I just get a "TMo Loyalty Rebate" to compensate for my "free upgrade" offer?). I guess it's just the principle of the matter... yeah I could spend and extra $100 for a phone that would require me to then buy at minimum a 16GB SD for another $50 = $330 but I thought my loyalty was on par with a new customer... Not so. I've had my HTC Dash since 2006 but given my options I'm either looking at going to ATT iPhone or just transferring my Cell# to another No-Contract carrier for 3 months until the dust settles to see if the iPhone Gen 4 will come out before I get under another 2-year commitment or otherwise save $100 on the N1 after my 90-Day fast.

FYI: For all my fellow schemers...I mean opportunist... cancelling your TMo plan and then resigning a new contract won't work because it will be treated as a "Reactivation" until you've been away for 90-Days.

I have been frustrated through trying to buy on the google site as a new T Mobile customer as I'm being told that "You are not eligible because your credit does not qualify you for service at this time." I have great credit and think it's a flaw in their system of credit checking with T Mobile. I called T Mobile and their all confused and say they don't offer the Nexus One. They would like to sign me up for an account and then have me buy the phone. That however would mean more for the phone. frustrating.....

Every existing T-Mobile is getting burnt right now, when you are loyal to a company they often don't look out for you or your best interest. In this case all the G1 users feel the pain in their wallets, i don't think that the pricing plans were a mistake i think its done like that intentionally to "force" many people to pay full price for the device. This should teach the Google loyal followers to not think so highly of the company. Either way you put it you practically have to sell your soul to get a discounted price. Who seriously uses 500 mins a month??

I'm upset at tmobile but pissed at google. fine you want to sell an unlocked version on your website to people who don't want to be locked into a contract, i can understand that and i'm sure there are a lot of people out there who would really love that deal, but they should have offered the phone through tmobile so that i could stay on my family plan. unlocked or not i don't want to pay $530 for a phone, i don't have that kind of money just waiting to be spent and anyone who uses a credit card is paying a lot more then $530. Also what if you want to insure it, too bad it's through google. On top of that even if I quit and restart my service I will still pay $20 more per month then anyone else with the same plan. This is a rip off and the heads of google know it. I've been using android since it was first available telling everyone what a great os it was, but now google is going to pull some shady crap like this.
