    The verizon store here has a couple of Pixels available for purchase.

    I am currently on ATT, if I purchase this phone from them outright will it work with my ATT sim card?

    The big question is, will they sell it to a non Verizon customer?

    This would be the biggest hurdle. Depends on the rep I guess.

    I was told at the local V store the phones they sell have to be activated on V - may be a local thing, or a V thing - best to check with the store you want to purchase the Pixel from.

    Not being a current Verizon customer didn't even cross my mind. I figured since I wanted to buy it outright it wouldn't matter. Guess I ought to call first before going over there.

    The unlocked from Google will work, which I am currently using on AT&T. I don't think the Pixel from Verizon will work on AT&T because I thought it was carrier locked.

    All Verizon LTE phones are carrier unlocked. They have to be due to an agreement they made for some spectrum.

    I have a VZW Pixel running on Fi but I also have an AT&T sim card. The VZW Pixel works fine on AT&T..

    How about Best Buy? They should be able to sell you a Pixel out right if not on Verizon right?

    When I bought my phone there they said they don't actually sell the phones outright. That's just a total cost (with financing) figure.

    I don't think they sell to non-Verizon subscribers.
    Your options are two-year contract, if you're still on an old plan, or monthly installments with discount on a newer plan.

    I just did this. I preordered/cancelled once I found out that there was going to be a Pixel Store here in NYC. Then, I find they're not actually selling phones, so I order again, only this time the wait was first week in November. Too long. So, Best Buy is only online, but the Verizon stores have a pretty good stock. Here's what I did- Don't go to a franchise store, go to an actual fancy Verizon store. They will not sell you a Pixel without a Verizon line, but they will sell you one month of prepaid service, an activation fee and a Pixel Phone. I did this for $794.78, Pixel (small) 32gb. My original Google order was like 707.00. So a $90 premium, but I'm typing this on my new Pixel instead of waiting. T-Mobile SIM works 100%. I don't care about the bootloader.

    I bought one from Best Buy no questions asked. Didn't ask if I'm on Verizon

    Bought mine from Best Buy yesterday. Verizon version. Using it on AT&T just fine.

    What about updates from a Verizon or Best Buy Pixel being used on AT&T? Are the updates based on SIM so you'll get them right away from Google?

    No. I've had the Verizon edition on T-Mobile and now on Fi and I have no problems with updates. Updates come out the same time as the Google Edition.

    Great thanks. So no waiting for Verizon to send them out after they get it from Google?

    What people want to know on the Pixel is will a Verizon phone with a At&t sims card still work on WiFi calling ?

    I don't have the definitive answer, but I do know that T-Mobile wifi calling works on my Verizon Pixel.

    First off, I bought my Pixel at Verizon outright. I had to by a prepaid sim with the phone. Then I popped my AT&T sim in. It works perfectly, I have gotten every update as soon as it was available.hkwever, AT&T will not activate wifi calling on your Pixel no matter where you purchase it. As soon as I switched to TMobile wifi calling was active.

    AT&T won't allow wifi calling. It should work with the other 3 though.

    AT&T doesn’t support advanced calling features on non-AT&T devices period. Been like that for years. Many won’t miss the features but some will. Some like myself will get frustrated with whacky MMS group text behavior with Samsung users on other carriers whose texts can’t be seen in group threads. It’s rather inexplicable but it happens. Been there done that...popped a TMobile SIM in without any software changes and poof, no problems. I’m now on Verizon (better coverage in my area) and happy for over a year now.
