    It looks like all the rumors about the Motorola-made Google Nexus 6 coming on November 12th are at least partially true. AT&T confirmed that they will start preorders for the device on that date. They didn't reveal when the phone would start shipping but at least the preorders will start tomorrow. Here's a quote from AT&T's presser,

    Would like some feedback from At&t folks here, which way are you going to be buying this thing? I am on their latest family plan without a contract for 3 lines, paying $165 after tax with 10GB of data.

    If I sign a new 2 year contract and buy the phone for $249, I lose the $25 discount on my line. Whereas if I do one of the Next plans, I keep the discount but have to pay at least $22 a month for X number of months.

    Anyone doing a Next plan? I can't see paying for a phone for 12/18/24 months, just to turn it in to them. I would probably keep it until paid off no? But then you end up paying more than full retail for the phone, just over time.

    "You can get the Nexus 6 in Midnight Blue for $0 down with AT&T Next for $22.77per month with AT&T Next 24, $28.46 per month with AT&T Next 18 or $34.15 per month with AT&T Next 12. You can also purchase Nexus 6 for $249.99 with a two-year agreement4 or $682.99 with no annual commitment."

    If you do the Next 24, that is $22.77 a month for 30 months = $683.10, plus you still have to cover the tax of the full retail of $682.99 which is $56.35 here in Austin, TX. So total of $739.45. About $67 more than retail. However, if you factor in the $25 a month less you would be paying on your line staying on the next plan, that is $750 over the 30 months.

    So that pays for the phone over going with a 2 year contract and paying $249 for the phone and losing the $25 line discount? Thoughts on this?

    Unofficial: Verizon will be doing preorders tomorrow as well for both 32 and 64 gig model. Will have to wait until then to determine the legitimacy of the rep.

    Alright, forgive my chicken scratch here, I forgot to add the tax back in for my original full retail.

    Looks like full retail and paying for the phone fully through the next are the same price.

    Two year agreement will end up costing more.

    Let's put a friendly wager on it. I say loser buy winner a set of screen protectors or cheap case or some kind of accessories ($5 pack you find in amazon).
