I'm sure you're going to love your new Nexus jman1456! What phone do you currently have? You can go into a corporate store with the Nexus and get a SIM card. (Usually free, or close to it.) If you go into an indirect store, they may charge you, if they offer it at all. You can find your closest corporate store location here: http://bit.ly/OUzguT To have the phone activated is free also, in our corporate stores.
