    Sucks if true. On Verizon eSIM I just switch from 5G to LTE.

    It was quick and easy to do.

    It is a non-physical sim, electronic sim that is downloaded to your phone through your carrier.

    Ah thank you. When my 6P arrives in days is there anything I need to do to get one?

    There's an option right in the Settings, under Network and Internet. Click on internet, then shows my Carrier (TMobile) and a "cog" next to that. Then select Preferred Network Type. Option there for 5G, LTE, 3G and 2G.

    Or just search in the settings for Preferred Network Type and select from there.

    I have Google Fi and those options aren't there.

    Just call your carrier. I have Google Fi as my carrier and my Pixel 6 Pro came with a physical sim already installed. With my Pixel 4a I switched from AT&T to Fi and when I did Google downloaded the esim into the 4a.
    If you have a physical sim for your carrier just put in your P6P from the other phone.

    That's my plan. Typing on my 4 XL right now. My plan is to put the Sim from this right into the 6. I then arrange the download with Verizon right after?

    I have att and they remove the option to choose network type. So I just turn on battery saver to switch to LTE.

    You can. Not sure why unless the sim you have isn't 5g ready.

    I believe it originated with my Pixel XL from '16, so it may not be...

    Getting a new and 5g ready sim is a good idea.

    Google Fi ready phones do. I don't know about other carrier phones. I bought a Pixel 6 Pro Fi ready phone and it came with a Fi sim card installed.

    I got my phone from Verizon and it came with a new sim card. If I select Settings/Network & internet/SIMs/Preferred network type all 3 options seem to be available.

    Thank you! Was it a hassle getting the number moved?

    No. They mailed me the new phone and I transferred the data. Up and running since 11/5.

    I'm on Verizon, and I previously did a speed test when I saw I had a decent 5G signal, and got 30 Mbps down, which isn't bad. I don't see a history rec now, but I swear I saw only 2Mbps the first time I tried it. I just did the switch to LTE preferred, and got 205 Mbps down, so I'll be leaving it on LTE for the time being.
