    Purchased a new supposedly Google unlocked phone from a seller on eBay and I asked a ton of questions before I purchased it.
    Got the phone today and popped in my prepaid Verizon SIM card and I did notice a quick popup saying something about non Verizon Google pixel XL phone?
    Odd thing is after updating the phone I had three Verizon apps in my app drawer. My Verizon, Messages+ and go90.

    Today I went to install an app from the Play Store on my laptop and it asked if I wanted to download it to my Verizon Google Pixel 2 XL.

    What the????
    Did I end up with a Verizon version of the Pixel 2 XL?

    The Verizon SIM triggered those apps.

    You could use an app like DevCheck https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...flar2.devcheck to identify the SKU. On my Verizon variant the SKU is as shown in the screenshot.

    Just log into your Verizon account. See what Verizon says your phone is. If it's not a Verizon Pixel then it will say non Verizon.

    To confirm - same thing happened to me with my Verizon SIM and 2 unlocked Pixel 2s bought directly from Google Store.

    I'd say you have nothing to worry about.
