    @dsignori - Out of curiosity, why buy from Google?

    I am on VZW, and with the exception of the XL I grabbed during the "deal" Google had, I have always gotten phones from my local VZW store.
    I give so much money to VZW now (5 family members), just considering splitting the payments a bit I guess. I may yet go with VZW.

    Thanks - I am always curious as to why people do things - I will probably go the VZW way again - store is within walking distance - I walk in as soon as they are available and walk out with a phone - would like to see the blue Pixel in person before I get it.

    Good Luck with whatever you do.

    At the end of the day the money is paying for the phone. The money going to Google or Verizon doesn't really matter. I have 9 lines right now and they provide me service. I feel the trade of $ for service is fair .

    I will order mine from Google, for no real reason other than I don't want to give VZW more money. Also, I've heard positive stories of Google CS where VZW isn't always the easiest. However, my commitment isn't that strong so if I pre-order and it gets delayed, I have no problem walking into a VZW store, or Best Buy, so I can walk out with one sooner.

    Of course it's still paying for the phone. They provide me with service for my 5 phones now too. I was thinking of the potential of splitting a very large payment up is all. By the way, with my iPads, I actually pay VZW for 7 lines now ...

    Hell I am glad I have 9 lines... it dropped the price down haha. My line costs me $33 w/ taxes and all. Hard to really complain.

    I like the service too, I just wouldn't mind that monthly nut to be a bit smaller, even if I had to pay the rest separately ..

    Personally I don't mind it being Verizon exclusive, then John Legere will say bring the Pixel to T-Mobile and get $350 off like last year
    I'll anyway buy from Google store so it'll be great if TMobile has the same $350 bill credit offer for Pixel 2 like last year.

    From a tweet that John did last night it sounds like they may be carrying it this year.

    I'd definitely be shocked to see it. I'm guessing they did Verizon last time to get in a lot of stores and for Verizon to advertise it for them.

    I think people were on point when they said the experience is part of the reason they went with Verizon. People like to say Sprint and T-Mobile aren't bad and are close to Verizon when it come to coverage but I'm my opinion in my area that isn't true. Plus they obviously set something up for Verizon to market the **** out of it.

    Last year when I walked into a Verizon store to LOOK at a Pixel, I was given the sales pitch and was almost harassed into switching to Verizon. I'm not having that.
    It's just SO hard to say, "I'm not eligible for upgrade. I'm just looking. Thanks", isn't it? I mean, it is just SO hard.

    Sarcasm detected. You're right, 100%. It really isn't that hard to say and I'm not sure why I didn't think to say that from the door.
