No 4G Sim?

I was watching videos on YouTube of SGN unboxings and reviews, because I think I want to get this phone. How come all the people in the videos said that they didn't get 4G Sim cards to put in the phone? Will I get one when I buy it?

 

I'm also thinking of getting the HTC Rezound. Which would you guys recommend?

It comes with a sim card to install into the phone. The video's that you have seen, must have been phones that people bought from overseas before the official release of the Galaxy Nexus for Verizon.

Thank you for the quick response. I am hoping I can go get this phone soon. I couldn't get it yesterday because the folks at Best Buy advised me not to switch phones while the network was down. I wouldn't be able to call/text/browse with my new phone, or do anything with my old phone. Is it okay to go and switch phones now? Is the network up?

 

And which would you suggest, the HTC Rezound or the Nexus? I was looking at an HTC phone in Best Buy yesterday and I liked how it had a lot of widgets. I really like to customize my stuff and make it look cool, so I would like a phone with a lot of cool widgets. Does the Nexus have many cool widgets?

Network is up for me in IL now... but you want to talk to the Best Buy people to see if it is up by them.

 

There was an outage yesterday, but I was home sick and sleeping through most of the outage....... unless the outage never affected me :smileyvery-happy:

The Rezound will have HTC Sense loaded on it. That will have more widgets than the Stock Galaxy Nexus, but there are plenty of cool widgets in the Market to add whatevery you want.

 

On the other hand, when there is an Android OS update, with the Rezound, you have to wait for HTC to provide and update, with the Nexus, there is no wait for the Manufacturer to have to modify their skin for it to work. That could mean up to 5-6 months wait time.

 

Up to you and your preference.
