Best Buy Exclusively Carrying AT&T’s Samsung Nexus S July 24th for $100


Nexus S fans on AT&T can finally buy the device subsidized as Samsung and Best Buy have struck deals to offer the phone starting July 24th. You can get it at Best Buy stores or at BestBuy.com. Oddly enough, no mention of AT&T directly offering it was to be found. They must have some sort of subsidy deal in place to be able to provide this thing for the low price of $100 after a two-year agreement, though. Presales start today at BestBuy.com and in stores. Read on for full press details.

PS: This one’s not “4G”.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Please. Get. A life.

  2. I paid $600 for the white nexus S back in April for use with AT&T prepaid. But at least my average monthly cost is under $20, and no need to worry about ETF when i get the nexus prime.

    1. You can get a smartphone on AT&T with a prepaid plan? Your monthly cost is under $20? Do you get data with that? That sounds too good to be true

      1. What do you get unlimited text? LOL!!!!!! Fucking liar!!!!!!!!!!

      2. @JohnnyPo i do get unlimited text because i’m using google voice, but once in awhile i get these spam text messages to my at&t number that cost 20c/text. @TheDrizzle, you buy a smartphone that has the 850/1900mhz GSM AND make sure it supports 3G at 850/1900mhz as well (tmobile version of nexus S doesn’t). For prepaid, it cost 10c/min, and data is $25/500mb/mo, $15/100mb/mo, and $5/10mb/mo, the cool thing is you can rollover your data if you renew with a package, so i just use $25 then $5, $5, $5, $5, $5, $25, I actually use less than 100mb/mo since i use wifi almost everywhere. However, they throttle your data speed so it’s like only like 200kbps. I only visit mobile version websites and use maps so not too bad.

    2. I hate to make this any worse for you, but my sister got an unlocked Vibrant for $110 and is running it on AT&T 3G HSPA. To me, the Vibrant is a Nexus S without an NFC or as good of a GPS.

      Her plan is unlimited data, 200 texts and 450 minutes for $55 a month. Under $20 seems impossible. I have no idea how you did that.

      1. data cost me $100/yr which is $8.33/mo, so say using voice cost $10/mo for 100 min, then i still got $1.66 left for 8 spam text messages. I mainly use google voice text so I don’t really use that many minutes, but occasionally I might have a costly conversation. However I’ve made it a rule to never be think about the costs for voice/data/spam-text because the way I see it is that I have a $40 balance per month since that’s what I would’ve paid like I use to on the monthly plans.

  3. Where is the presale link for the AT&T Nexus S on Bestbuy.com ? i cannot see it, i cannot find it, can someone help please, thanks

  4. Quentyn: your article states “Presales start today at BestBuy.com and in stores”

    i’ve been all over the bestbuy.com website, and i could not find the presale that starts “today” anywhere on there

  5. LOL!!! AT&T blows more cock than Jenna Jamison did in her prime. If the merger ever goes through then AT&T will just be trying to force feed people that boring ass Iphone. AT&T has a real shitty line up and the Nexus S is the only good phone they have LOL! I truly feel for those stuck on this shitty carrier, Im with tmobile so I had no problem picking up my nexus off contract. If the merger does go through then I’m getting the fuck away from AT&Tmobile and going to Sprint. I feel for those dumb asses that are foolish enough to stay with AT&T.

    1. Besides, this phone is last years toy, the new Nexus phone is right in the horizon ready to shine. The infuse is no exception either, Its just a Galaxy S variant with a larger screen wow. And why the fuck isn’t it 4G capable? Doesn’t AT&T have a 4G network, then why no Nexus S 4G(Sprint has the Nexus S 4G why not AT&T). For newbs I understand but for hardcore Android enthusiast like myself its a leap backwards.

  6. This is a joke. There’s no pre-order link online, and none of the in-store reps have any clue what you’re talking about. I went to 3 stores and asked about it and they said “this is the first I’ve even heard about it…. you’re sure it’s not the Nexus S 4G for Sprint???”…. amazing.

  7. Feel like i got screwed out of my Atrix yet again. If I knew Nexus S coming to AT&T I would of save money and bought it for 99$. It’s the best NEXUS price.
