Bought a Nexus 6 from Motorola for my wife, through Amazon, new. Bummer. The phone Audio doesn't work, and for the life of me I can't figure it out. Did factory resets, safe factory resets, no joy. Will return, but never read about anyone with a similar problem. Audio works for everything but phone. Phone Audio works with headphones too.

+DJ SPY I bought it through Amazon, but the seller was Motorola. On Amazon I saw like new phones for $275, but new out of the box, from the mfgr, with warranty was worth the diff for ma and cool for her. Straight up, I would buy a new 6 over the 6P. I love the phone. If I can ever buy something, I want it fulfilled by Amazon. Got the new one, the next day at 10:00 AM

Okay... After a 4 year wait, I got my invite and my sim card 24 hours later. I bought my Nexus from T-Mobile. All I had to do was take the T-Mobile sim card out and put the Fi card in. When I got the invite I downloaded the Project Fi app before the sim card arrived.

Once the sim card was put in, the phone took control and walked me through everything (not much to go through).

I actually like my Google Voice number a lot, so I elected to go with that instead of my old number. Clean start, flush the callers I don't want to talk to (many). Let the others know my new number. I will port my old cell number to my VOIP provider.

Everything worked flawlessly. I was fully activated in about 20 minutes, even though the screen said it could take a day or two.

I live in Southeast FL and coverage is good. The quality of my calls was superb and former dead spots, T-Mobile always dropped, didn't drop. So it works!

Good news for you guys, who like me, were on the dead sea scroll wait list... Its worth the wait.

All I can say is that EVERYTHING works flawlessly for me. Ive changed my data habbits, dowloading and changing only on my home wifi, or guest wifi. I used to be a giant streamer. Now I download my music and use my onboard playlists. I used to consume 5 to 7 gigs of data. I got fi on Aug 27. So far Ive used less than 200 mbs. I project my bill to be around 27.00 with better cell service. Not bad!

I have a Nexus 7, a Nexus 6 bought from Motorola 3 days ago, and a Nexus 6 purchased from T-Mobile in March. The Nexus 7 and Motorola 6 had a 48T system build. They have both received updates. Why aren't the T-Mobile 28M's getting updated. Very irritating.

The Nexus 6 I bought from Motorola, through Amazon on Friday just developed a phone audio problem. Cant hear anyone. Went through every possible step, getting a new one tomorrow.  At least Amazon has fantastic service...

Requested an invite a month ago, just saw that I should expect it in 12 weeks or more.  My company is torn between deploying Microsoft universally via Office 365 licenses, or Google Apps.  It sure looks like the people who are buying new Nexus 6 phones directly from Google are getting on right away, while others wait.  T-Mobile is great in Fort Lauderdale and South Florida and I have unlimited data for a reasonable price for the amount I use, so I am rethinking the Project Fi deal...  Waiting around like this is irritating.

I have an android. I've had androids for years. I have a Nexus 6 and a Nexus 7. I also have a number of PC's. I have 6 Google Apps accounts. In fact, I was even an early adapter of Wave. I love Google. I've also been a user of Microsoft Products since I bought my first computer, a 125 mb Mac. I used Microsoft Windows since I bought my first HTC smartphone in 2003. Used it on my Palms and HP smartphone, until I bought my iPhone 2. I didnt have a problem Microsoft needed to fix. I fix my problems, as I know what works best, and where. The only problem I can't fix is the 12 weeks - or more I was given as an "update." Update, really? I may have to live with it, but I dont have to like it, or the hapless marketing surrounding it.
