So I am THINKING of buying the Ringke Slim case (revised) http://www.rearthusa.com/google-nexus-4 ... -slim-case

Apparently no free shipping for Canada, but $5.

Any feedback on this case? It doesn't come with a screen protector it seems though.

Or I may get this Nillkin case http://www.nillkin.com/english/proshow. ... 960&page=1 that comes with the screen protector.

I'd like to go with the least bulky and best material (i.e. not that kind of silicone feeling).

They replaced my SIM with a microSIM free of charge. Not sure if that's YMMV.
Really? Was it a corporate store?

They asked $10 from me. No biggie though.

Anyone received their cases yet? If so which ones? Thoughts? Or are you all going bare?!
Probably next week for my generic TPU case from eBay.

Hopefully Qi will win the format war fairly quickly. Considerign that everything Android and WP is Qi I can only see it being prolonged if Apple joins powermat. :(
If Apple's adoption of NFC (or lack thereof) is any indication, the format war will have been decided long before they include wireless charging in an iPhone.

Good luck with that, especially since there isn't even a dominant standard for wireless charging. If airports gave a rat's arse about your (or my) convenience they'd have at least provided more AC outlets in waiting areas, if not powered USB outlets.
At MIA, they've got these great charging hubs sponsored by Samsung. If only more airports had them!

What is the process for that. Do you get to keep your phone until they can ship you a replacement or do you have to send it in?

I may have to send mine back. I think you send in defective one and they send out replacement most likely.

You keep your current phone and only return it to them when you receive your replacement unit.

It was the Wind store @ Shops At Don Mills (cnr. Don Mills and Lawrence). No hassles at all.

Earlier this week, I ordered two Nillkin super frosted cases (Brown for myself, White for the lady).

I'll take pics and post some impressions later.

Thinking about buying a case with a flap as well - possibly the Nillkin leather.

Ugh I am having the same issue with my phone again. This time if someone calls me, it rings once (well ring tone on the person making the call) but my phone doesn't ring and it goes to voice mail. Am on the line with Bell tech support and they tried calling me but my phone didn't ring at all, even though that they said it kept on ringing but no answer.

Hopefully its not a Bell and Nexus 4 issue. Worst case, I will wipe the phone and follow Android Root Guy's suggestion.
You crazy bro?
I don't think the problem has to do with the phone but the fact that the phone wasn't really built with LTE in mind.

This sounds pretty bad. I hope this is more of a defect and not the fact that the speaker gets blown easily. Not that I crank it up so much, but still.
