I am going to be upgrading my phone from a Blackberry 9300 to a Nexus 4. I would like to know if the Nexus 4 comes with extra carrier software or skins loaded on the phone in the same way that Samsung alters the OS?

Excellent upgrade, my friend.

To answer your question: Nope. It is a Nexus device. It is vanilla Android. No bloatware, no proprietary apps, pure and simple Android 4.2.2. It runs very fast and efficiently.

You'll also get updates in the future right away, because it' directly from Google.

It also comes factory unlocked out of the box, so if you ever travel outside of Canada, you just have to pop in a local SIM and you're off to the races.

I have the phone. It's some of the best hardware on the market for the $300 Koodo sells it for.
