Anyone know how to upgrade a Sprint free unlimited line with this deal? Been on free unlimited for about 5 months. Man Sprint service is terrible.

Just go into the store ask BB mobile specialist to put you on the unlimited basic plan and pay $60 a month before tax and ditch your BYOD free plan

If you buy the Sprint one, can you just pop in another SIM card (Google fi) and not use the Sprint sim?

Well you can buy the unlock one and activate with a Sprint plan
However, no idea why people dont buy it before May 18 when they have all those deals...

I personally bought 5 Pixel 3a from Google and Bestbuy with iphone trade in and resell 4 of them, at the end I got my 3a for free, profits and end up with $200 Google store creditsLMAO
Cool story bro.

As someone has used both iPhone 6s and pixel 3a with SPRINT the lte reception is objectively poorer on pixel 3a. I haven't look into the band spectrum and other things but I play location based game and all the places I go pixel 3a had poorer reception. Just be aware.

Sharing my experience, these phones are terrible on Sprint, no VOLTE yet so data does'nt work when you are on a call. Now please don't give me the crap saying VOLTE is only available in selected market yada yada. Well my other phones has VOLTE why the same line doe'snt have VOLTE on Pixels?

These phones came with March 2019 security update and No live wallpaper.
The android Q beta is closed for these phones no date as to when it will be opened up.
Side loading Q beta is not possible since google removed the download links from their site.

Also pixels have a hard time opening login websites for wifi so you can't even have wifi calling. Other phones let you skip the warning and still connect even if the ssl certificate is not trusted or expired. The neverssl website trick also doesn't work.

This isnt a flagship, the camera takes a lot of time to process each image so not good for shooting few photos quickly, performance also is a bot laggy compared to the actual pixel 3s.

3a and 3a XL just had the latest security update on Monday and Android Q Beta is also open for both.
