    Hey All,

    I apologize if this has been covered before. I am thinking of moving from Verizon to T-Mobile to take advantage of the Get Out of Red promo.

    I know that the phone will work on T-Mobile just fine, but my question is about future updates. Will I still get the updates automatically or will I have to flash them myself?

    Any input would be appreciated!

    It probably will not get updates without the Verizon SIM in it, but not positive that's true. Worst case scenario, keep your SIM card from Verizon and pop it in once a month to update. It doesn't need an active SIM, just a SIM from Verizon. You can also flash the OTA images yourself easily.

    Updates come from Google no matter where you purchase or network you use.

    It is a Google phone so you get updates from them, like Nexuses.

    I did exactly what you're questioning and have received EVERY update on time. Zero issues for almost 4 months now

    Not entirely related to your question but i feel the phone functions better on the t mobile network rather than verizon's. Possibly could be because Verizon has poor reception where I live compared to tmo though.

    I tried a T-Mobile SIM in my pixel and the reception was terrible, had to switch back to Verizon sim. Depends on where u live I guess
