    I'm following this situation closely because I'm on Total by Verizon and really want to get a Pixel 7. As of yesterday I've seen some posts on the Pixel support page that say that after the November carrier services update the 7 does now work with the Verizon MVNO's.

    I have straight talk on my main phone. I will try to keep it. I switched another phone number from straight talk to Red Pocket on an old iPhone. It worked but customer service was a challenge in both. I do think that Red Pocket is better. They are both Verizon MVNOs.

    Another MVNO you might want to look at is Spectrum of they're available in your area. They're currently running a deal where they're offering 2 lines or more for $29.99 each. Spectrum uses Verizon's network.

    Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately they don't cover my area. Rural GA near the SC line. Hilton Head and Bluffton.

    Going to try to activate the sim without the phone. It will come tomorrow. ..

    The sim comes today via UPS.

    I noticed that the IMEI of the phone is on the Google store order so I should have everything that I need.

    I assume that it will give me the option to transfer my existing phone number at the same time..

    If this doesn't work I will have to call customer service tomorrow.

    Well it might have worked. The activation process went fine. My 6 Pro no longer has phone service!

    When the 7 Pro comes tomorrow it should have phone service once I install the SIM.

    I've been with US mobile (verizon) with P6 pro and 7 pro with out any problems. Switching sims between Samsung and Pixel also never a problem.

    It works!!! Pixel 7 Pro on Straight Talk Verizon. There were a few hiccups but I didn't have to call customer service. Now I can box up my 6 Pro and get my trade-in credit from Google.

    So you activated the sim before putting it in the phone and it worked?

    Yes. Once I saw the IMEI I knew it was possible. It took a while to activate after I inserted the SIM. I also ran an Android 13 QPR Beta update too. Coincidence?

    Apparently this is a common problem with the 7s and Straight Talk. The only thing I can think of is that I enrolled in the Android QPR Beta. After it rebooted everything was working. I don't know if Google fixed it or what?

    One other person has gotten this to work by installing the Android 13 QPR Beta.
