I can confirm that a Nexus 6 bought from Motorola can be activated on Ting. I activated mine a few minutes ago. I ordered my Nexus 6 on 11/6/14 and it was delivered on 11/18/14. On 11/18/14, I saw a post from the Ting Staff that there might be an issue activating the phone if it was bought from Motorola instead of the Google Play Store. I contacted Ting about this and they were very helpful. They confirmed that my IMEI number was not on Sprints Whitelist and they escalated the issue with Sprint. The following morning I had a reply from Ting that Sprint and Motorola resolved the issue with my IMEI number and that my phone could be activated later in the day. I was contacted by the Ting staff early in the afternoon that the issue was resolved that they confirmed that my phone can be activated as soon as I had a SIM Card. I ordered a SIM card on 11/18/14 when Ting put them on sale. I received it today (11/20/14) and was able to activate the phone.
My initial impression of the phone when I opened the box was, “Wow, that is a big phone.” The more I used it, the more I liked it. I was worried that the Nexus 6 was going to be too big, now I am think that my previous phone (Galaxy Nexus) was too small. I did carry the Nexus 6 around for the day on 11/19/14 just to see how it felt in my pocket all day. I drove to and from work with it in my front pocket, and I had no issues with comfort while I was driving. I also had no issues with the phone in my pocket while I sat at my desk and worked. I am sure there are going to be situations where I will need to take it out of my pocket. I am really liking the size of the screen and I am definitely keeping the phone.
I would like to thank the Ting staff for helping me resolve the issues I had activating the Nexus 6. Once again there Customer Service is fantastic and they get an A+ rating from me.
Anyone else get a Nexus 6?
