Summary: I bought this Phone and within 5 days it started freezing all the time. I could not even make calls because it would freeze or crash. This seller is very responsible and solved the problem by changing the phone.
Summary: Had to replace the On & Off switch!! This cell is okay but the on & Off switch goes out very fast from what I hear and went through. Now the main board went out. Did not last 1 year!! don't buy a used one, get a new one so the switch will last you at least 2 to 3 years.
Summary: Bought this phone almost a year ago with US warranty version. It was working fine a few months and then started to notice the touchscreen issue. When tapping on the app or icon, the wrong app will open or navigatin softkey was selected. Typing text has become a big issue since the wrong characters were selected. After extensive search and found out that the touchscreen issue is the major problem for the nexus one.
GREAT BUT LASTED FOR ONLY 4 MONTHS. BUYERS BEWARE!!!

Summary: This phone did not come cheap as at when i bought it, it went for 420dollars. And so i expected it would last me for some time, but i was wrong, as it started having issues in just 5 months after i bought it. When i turn it on, it kept showing the x logo and never came on. I called HTC and they are giving me this story that since i bought the phone with an amazon carrier(MR CELLS), it is out of warranty as per the initial date the carrier bought it.
Buyer beware of "U.S. Warranty" from UnlockedCellphoneKings

Summary: I purchased Google Nexus One Unlocked Phone with Android--U.S. Warranty (Brown) on 19March2012. Contacted HTC when I noticed that box was open, and charger was not for the U.S. and that someone had added an adapter for U.S. HTC informed me that my IMEI number matched a U.K. phone, and that any U.S. warranty expired 11April2012. Contacted UnlockedCellPhoneKings and was told that "We have a 90 day warranty covering any manufacturer defects or problems with the device.
Didn't work on first boot, too much hacking to get it to work and still has issues
27 February 2012
Summary: I bought this phone knowing that it did not have a warranty, but still expected it to at least boot up first time. Shock on me. The 'X' boot up logo appeared and that was it. Removed the battery and tried it again. This time, with the 'X' boot up logo appearing and disappearing like it was in a reboot loop.
Summary: I purchased this phone as a suitable alternative to the iPhone since it was unlocked and I had to travel world wide. The reviews were mixed and technically the phone is not as good as the older iPhone 3GS but it didn't cost $600 and came with a 1yr warranty so I was estatic! Hold it- not so fast. The 2 phones I purchased lasted less than 2 months and when I tried to send it for warranty HTC said that this was sold by some company in Canada.
Summary: Bought the phone a few months ago for traveling internationally. The operating system is buggy - in SMS programs, games, the programs will often not work correctly. SMS keyboards will misfire- type "y" and keyboard types "s" or type a key near the bottom of the keyboard and it sets off the "Back" function. Start to play a game.. and the touch screen stops working.. or if you tap a touch screen control it sends the phone back to the "home" screen.
Summary: No warrant is no warranty. I ordered two of these and one of them does not work properly. it continuously reboots and it's track ball constantly glows red since coming out of the box, which after some intensive research indicates a hardware problem.
Summary: This was an excellent unlocked Android phone on ATT 3G. (This, coming from someone who foolishly purchased it directly from Google for more than $500 when it first came out). I loved loved loved this phone. Unfortunately, at twenty months it began to randomly go into a reboot loop, and become very warm at the bottom under the battery door. HTC support recommended exporting my contacts and then a factory reboot.
