But to use it, I have to buy a $499 Nexus 6?

Best sales strategy ever.

Currently. If they want it to succeed they'll have to open it up to other Android and iOS phones down the road.

I'm tempted particularly with the international data in 120 countries included. But they need to support iOS first

You didn't know?

Try republic wireless. Same billing model, cheaper plans, WiFi and cellular calling, and Motorola phones that run plain android (no bloatware). Plus the Moto X second gen is cheaper than the nexus 6 (5.1" screen instead of a 6" screen).

No, I actually didn't even request an invite, it just showed up in my Gmail inbox personalized for me and everything. I must live in some market they are testing.

Too bad Republic Wireless uses crappy CDMA towers. I'd rather use Cricket as my MVNO and get service on ATT towers over GSM...especially if I am buying my cellular device outright. Most likely you'll be happier with a GSM device if you ever travel outside the country, as no one relevant uses CDMA besides Americans. Plus, CDMA coverage sucks everywhere.

You do know that Verizon uses CDMA and they have by far the most coverage in the US, right?

You do know Republic Wireless uses Sprints CDMA towers, and that Verizon is dropping CDMA in favor of VoLTE (pure LTE) as we speak.

Hopefully the rumored Nexus 5 (2015) will be supported. Nexus 6 is just too big and expensive for me.

Few of us have tried it out over here.
