The LG Nexus 4 should be in stock in the Google Play Store in the coming weeks, but instead of visiting the Play Store 20 times a day, users can sign up for a text notification when the Nexus 4 is back in stock.
Considering the first Nexus 4 stock sold out in around an hour, it’s likely the second shipment will sell out fast as well. Google doesn’t offer an option to sing up for alerts, but a third-party service monitors the Nexus 4 page every 5 minutes and can send text, email or browser alerts when the Nexus 4 8GB or 16GB are back in stock.
NowInStock.net monitors the web page for changes that signal the Nexus 4 is back in stock, and can send alerts when this happens. The service is free to use, and shoppers can choose from several alert types. This is easier than running your own website change detection tool, and checks more frequently than many off web services.
How to Know When the Nexus 4 is In Stock
To sign up for Nexus 4 in stock alerts, visit NowInStock.net and create a free account.
Confirm the account in your email and if opting for the email alerts add the email address to contacts.
Log in to the account at NowInStock.net and visit the Nexus 4 page.
Add the Nexus 4 to your account tracker and choose which type of alerts to receive. From here, users can opt to get stock notifications for the 8GB or the 16GB individually or for both models.
