LG Nexus 4 In Stock, Don’t Let The Glitch Fool You

Anyone who is trying to get hold of the LG Nexus 4 will know it is not the easiest of handsets to get hold of.

LG Nexus 4 availability confusion online

The suppliers haven’t been able to keep up with demand for the handset, however just a couple of days ago it was said that the LG Nexus 4 was in stock over at T-Mobile. How long it might remain this way no one knew. Just two days later it was said that the device had indeed already sold out, or had it?

T-Mobile reported that the LG Nexus 4 would be available again on 24th January, however it remained out of stock over at the Google Play Store. Everyone had their fingers crossed that the handset would come with plenty of stick, this wasn’t the case and just as before the handset is impossible to get hold of, but there does seem to be a twist to the story.

Business Insider said that the device was sold out in one day after T-Mobile had stock back in. But when this was checked we found that the LG Nexus 4 was showing up as being in stock. Over at Android Community they said they found the handset out of stock and then it had re-appeared and was back in stock again too. This is something that has happened frequently throughout the day ever since 24th January.

What this means is that stock changes from not just day to day, but from hour to hour, which has left people not knowing when the handset is in stock at T-Mobile. If you are still after the device then it might pay to keep checking as it could be a buffer system that has been set up by T-Mobile so as to stop them taking in too many orders for the device on a single day.

Now that the LG Nexus 4 is also back in stock at the Google Play Store, we are seeing a similar thing here whereby it is appearing to be in stock and the next minute not. So don’t fret, LG’s promise about availability issues easing by February appear to be coming true.
