    Besides some carrier bloat. I can get the pixel 6 for free from t-mobile. I'm assuming carrier bloat and maybe a slight delay in updates? Anything else that would be different??

    Actually I think I'm getting the pro. 149 down then I get 140 lump credit and the 760 in bill credits split between 24 months. Comes out to me paying 41 cents a month! I can't pass that up. And that's from trading in my OP 8t+


    Correction. I would be paying nothing for it. They are giving me a total of 900 for my OP 8t+

    That is crazy

    I would have considered at t-mobile as a 2nd phone but 128GB only...no way I would ever consider a 128GB phone with no SD. With current phone using 150GB so no way I would ration apps like that just to get. Carrier bloat is overblown, how hard to uninstall 3-4 apps???

    You know, I get it. But the chance to unload my OP 8T+ and get a pixel 6 pro with little to no out of pocket, I couldn't pass it up. The 149.99 that I had to put down I get 140.00 credit on my bill and my ongoing bill credit exceeds the device payment by 41 cents a month so that leaves 9.99 + tax+ shipping.

    This a secondary phone for me as my Fold³ is my primary so the 128gb is tolerable for me. IF I was paying for it I would have went for either 256 or 512 as that is what I always lean towards.

    As for carrier bloat, I was just getting that out in the open before someone responded with that. I can care less as I know it is minimal and either can be disabled, Uninstaller or hidden.

    I see why you went this route, it's a hard deal to pass up especially if this is not your daily.

    But.....

    I made the mistake of getting the TMO variant of the OnePlus 6T when TMO first carried OP. Never again for me. It had features missing that the unlocked variant had and the updates were not as often as the unlocked variant. Ended up flashing it to the unlocked software to get some of the features back and be able to get software updates.

    Also as others have mentioned, 128gig is not enough storage, so for these reasons I m out from the TMO variant. I passed on the good deal they have to get the unlocked straight from Google.

    This is my experience, I'm sure others will disagree.

    Oh yeah, agree great deal and I would do same for a 2nd phone as well.

    Yeah again if this was going to be my primary phone I probably wouldn't but, this will be a toying phone and a phone to use when I don't want to carry my fold³.

    Even it was to be your primary phone, that's a killer deal. With how ridiculously expensive phones are these days, I'd do that all day long even as my primary device. If I could get a deal like that and all it meant was that I had to use the cloud storage that I already use, I'd be all over it. Good call.

    That is true for the Pixels on Verizon as well. I think my Pixel 3xl came with the Verizon messaging app, which I use, and the My Verizon, which I also use. They are not only available to disable, but you can completely uninstall them. That's the great thing about Pixel... no carrier bloat.

    AT&T (my carrier) doesn't have any good deals unless you upgrade your plan to something more expensive that in the end you won't even take advantage of. Decided to go straight with unlocked. Been doing so for years now.

    For anyone inclined, it's possible to un-install just about any carrier or mfg installed app with ADB

    https://developer.android.com/studio/command-line/adb

    Yeah, it's a bit technical and not for everyone, but an option. Also T-Mobile will unlock any phone after 40 days (I assume they lock Pixels they sell to their network, but I could be wrong). Other than that, you just have to deal with that bright magenta startup screen w/their logo.

    I believe Oneplus offered two versions, T-Mobile and unlocked. T-Mobile had control over their OP devices on their network. Whereas the international unlocked version was like a google pixel, with updates comming directly from google. So one doesn't ever have to worry about getting a T-Mobile pixel that isn't exactly the same as the one from the google store and that will be locked to t-mobiles update schedule.

    So you are telling me that the Pixel from TMO has no TMO boot animation, TMO apps and TMO does not have the hand in "optimizing" the software for there network?

    Cool. That's what I'm doing too. The fold is cumbersome sometimes. Pixel might be great for that, plus as a camera.

    Correct. At least, that was my experience with my 3aXL and I expect it to be the same with my 6 Pro.

    Now this is interesting, and has my interest. Now if they only had the 256 gig....May look into this as a second device. I have some worthy trades

    But it will be locked to T-mobile

    Unlock eligibility for mobile devices on Postpaid plans

    The device must have been active on the T‑Mobile network for at least 40 days on the requesting line.
    If the device was financed or leased through T‑Mobile then all payments must be satisfied and the device must be paid in full.
    If the device is associated with a canceled account, then the account balance must be zero.
    T‑Mobile may request proof of purchase or additional information in its discretion and certain other exceptions may apply.
