    Thanks for this Twitter tutorial.

  • ya man i’ve had mine now for about 3 weeks, all my friends with iopnhes have wanted to compare phones with mine, on wi-fi the nexus is about 60% faster and when we run carriers its about 20% faster. Which is funny to me because I have t-mobile and they paid to get out of the tmob contract to get att iphone like 2 months ago. Around here tmob is really looked down on but I would say this phone for sure put it back on the board.
