    well, i don’t know where to start. i am a t-mobile user. been with t-mobile since 2000. i was ready to move into the smart phone arena. my son had just left my family plan, and i have been out a contract for 3 years. i went to google’s nexus one phone site and tried to order one. i didn’t qualify because i was on a family plan. no problem, i called t-mobile and they set me up on the plan compatible with the google phone. i get back on google’s phone site and this time i get to verify myself. the tmobile servers are getting hammered and i finally get in after 15 attempts. now i’m getting somewhere. Congratulations, you qualify for an upgrade. You can get the phone for $379. Wait, it says $179 on the first page. I call t-mobile and then it starts, you are set up okay on our end, try it again. After several more attempts and the same result, i call t-mobile again. it must be a google problem, try contacting them. forget it. any links from googles site only brings up user manuals and such. nowhere is there a phone number or way to contact a person. after several trips to the tmobile store for help and morel support i am told maybe just wait a while and give the system time to work out the kinks. its been a couple of days and i try the 611 number again. by this time i know what the computer is going to ask and start cutting her off before she finishes. if you want to have fun, you can yell or cuss at her and she keeps saying things like i’m sorry but i did not understand you. anyway, i finally had a tmobile support person on the phone as i was on the google site. as she would make changes to my account i would try to order the phone. wrong price, change something else and try again. after an hour we had the price down to $279. another $100 off because she had to take off the internet access as it was blocking that discount. i didn’t have internet access, but earlier they had set it up like they thought it should be. my phone is a 3 year old bar style and has a very small screen. not what you would call internet ready. now the kicker. i start asking after i get the phone and start my 2 year contract, will i be able to get on my wifes family plan. yes and no. yes you can get on your wifes family plan, but you will be billed the $250 discount making the phone cost the full price of $529. Since I really wanted to merge our two family plans it would not be prudent for me to purchase the phone. i looked for a cancel button on the credit card check out screen, what no button. no problem i click the red X at the top right of the screen and close the session. a few minutes later i get an email from google confirming that i have just purchased a google phone. they in form me that because they ship the phones as fast as possible when the orders come in, i have only 15 minutes to cancel. i try canceling but i don’t think i made it. when i get this super smart phone in about 5 days, i can return it if i don’t open the box. many penalties for peeking at the phone such as restocking, etc. I beleive I will get a full refund minus shipping. Not a good way to build up good feelings for a loyal customer. tonight i will be picking up a MyTouch phone and for the next 2 years wonder why I didn’t switch to a competitors plan for you guessed it $179.

    I am already a long term T-Mobile customer and I can only get this phone by paying the full unlocked price or have another entirely new seperate contract. This is not a smart business move. Where is the added value for dedicated customers?

    Larry, You described the problems so well….I have been so frustrated with the Google site for the last week, trying to purchase one. After many loops of going nowhere; probably has my credit ran also, still was not able to buy the phone. No one to call. Reading your posting…I am going to call it a quit!
