When a new smartphone is announced, manufacturers often reveal pricing and availability details together with specs. Sometimes, however, they opt not to this immediately. That’s what Motorola did with the Nexus 6. The phone was announced on October 15th, but we had to wait almost the whole month to learn which carriers will offer the device, when and for how much. If you are wondering where you can buy the Google Nexus 6 on contract, here are the details.
Google Nexus 6 availability through US carriers
Starting today, the Nexus 6 is available for pre-order at AT&T for $249.99 with a two-year service agreement. For users who prefer monthly payments AT&T prepared three Next options which will let you have the Nexus 6 for $22.77, $28.46 or $34.15 per month with Next 24, Next 18 and Next 12, respectively. If none of the above sounds good enough, you can grab the handset outright for $682.99. The device should start shipping on November 18th.
The Nexus 6 arrives to Sprint on November 14th and will be available “in Sprint direct ship sales channels, including Sprint Stores, Sprint Business Sales, Web Sales and Telesales at 1-800-SPRINT1” for $0 down plus 24 monthly payments of $29 or $696 off-contract. Like AT&T, Sprint will initially offer only the 32GB Midnight Blue variant.
Magenta network planned to launch the Nexus 6 today, but in order to give “customers the best experience possible”, the release date was pushed back to November 19th. When the phone finally makes it to T-Mobile stores, it will set you back $27.08 a month for 24 months on a device payment plan.
US Cellular confirmed that it will sell the Nexus 6 some time later this month, but didn’t provide any further details. We know even less when it comes to Verizon Wireless. The carrier most likely will offer the newest Google phone, but when we can expect to see it at stores remains a mystery for now.
The Nexus 6 is one of the best phones announced in the last few months so it’s no wonder that all major carriers are jumping on board to offer the device. With all the interest the handset has generated so far, Motorola may have a problem keeping up with the demand. That said, we wish you good luck and lots of patience.
