Google Nexus S Activation Problem with Best Buy
For those opting to purchase the new Android 2.3 Gingerbread packing Google Nexus S smartphone from Best Buy apparently there is some problem with activating the device on T-Mobile at Best Buy stores.
Apparently one BGR reader let them know that “After repeated calls to store representatives, one admitted that they are not able to activate his Nexus S with a contract, and that he’d have to pay full retail for the device.”
No doubt this situation won’t continue if it costs Best Buy customers so if you are looking to pick up a Google Nexus S from best Buy it may pay to hold off for a while, but thus far no official word from Best Buy on this matter.
One has to also wonder if Best Buy can’t activate the Nexus S on T-Mobile does the issue also affect other T-mobile smartphones offered by Best Buy?
