Google drops Nexus One upgrade price by $100, offers refunds

nexus-one-price-dropT-Mobile Google has dropped the upgrade price of the Nexus One to $279, which is $100 cheaper than the previous price of $379. Google and T-Mobile have been hit with some harsh criticism from Nexus One customers upset over slow-to-respond customer service and unreliable T-Mobile 3G service leading up to T-Mobile’s not-so-coincidental decision to slash $100 of the price of a Nexus One for T-Mobile customers looking to upgrade their phones. Effective January 14, T-Mobile Google will charge upgrade eligible customers just $279 for a Nexus One. The company will also be issuing $100 refunds to any T-Mobile customer who upgraded to a Nexus One at the previous $379 price point.

If you paid $379 for your Nexus One, you’re 1) obviously an existing T-Mobile customer who upgraded to the Nexus One and 2) due for a $100 refund. Anyone who upgraded to a Nexus One prior to Jan. 14th will receive their $100 refund within 14 business days. The Nexus One is available for $579 unlocked or $179 with a new 2-year T-Mobile contract. Only existing T-Mobile customers who were eligible for an upgrade were given the $379 price.

[Update]
As the commenter below pointed out, Google is dropping the price, not T-Mobile. Our bad.

    incorrect…everything is GOOGLE not TMOBILE. TMOBILE does not sell the phone nor has anything to do with it except the service…GOOGLE is refunding and GOOGLE has dropped the price..

    Still not doing it. If it was 100 or 150, I’d upgrade from my G1 – but 279 is too much.
