Varies by store. I picked up one unit at a store yesterday; Had checked another store nearer to me, but they didn't have stock on hand.

Yes, I bought one and paid in full at a Xfinity store. I was able to unlock the next day by chatting with Xfinity Mobile support and explaining to them that the phone was fully paid. The rep sent an unlock over the air and I was able to pop in a Verizon SIM with another number immediately.

I was able to stay at $12 per gig for my (3) existing lines and the 4th line we ported over from Cricket. I saw no reason to jump to 5 gig as only (2) of the four lines have 5g capable phones anyway. Not to mention $3.00 per month is $3.00Smilie

-Guru
XM wireless is actually a bad deal. Their shared 1 Gig plan seems to be aimed at seniors who spend all their time at home and predominantly use WiFi.

Mint Mobile is the way to go for everyone else. 5gigs of 5G data per line for $17 per month (includes tax and fees).

Over 24 hours since ADB edit and still going fine with my RedPocket SIM.
Which RedPocket network are you on? I am curious if it will work with their CDMA SIM after the phone is unlocked

You sound like an undercover embed for Comcast or maybe you're just a servile fool. No one is cool with how Comcast does business with their demands for SSN.
Dude, if you were buying the phone without phone service, you wouldn't need to give out your social security number. They're just running a credit check on you because you're not billed for the phone service itself until after you've already used it. This is a common practice. When I bought a Galaxy S7 with Verizon contract at Walmart a few years back, they did the same thing. If you buy an unlocked phone or pay as you go phone, it isn't necessary, because you're paying for service up front. Please take your tinfoil hat off and relax. It's not a conspiracy.

Don't 'dude' me. I don't hand out my SSN when buying something. Never done it before and never will. Comcast is a lying sleazy company. This low quality phone from Google with it's plastic back is not worth sacrificing one's principles or risking exposure to identity fraud.

Cool. You made your point known. You're not buying this phone. That's great. Now move along. Why are you posting in this thread when you clearly have zero interest in the contents within? Don't bother answering because nobody cares about the answer just like nobody cares about your FUD. Comcast is definitely a scuzzy company but not because they want your social security number for a post-paid transaction. This is common practice in the post-paid arena. You don't have to sign up and nobody is making you do so. Nobody here is making you give your social security number to anybody so just move along. This deal clearly isn't for you.

Absolute nonsense. You're defending Comcast and just making excuses for their anti-consumer business practices. You say this is standard parctice with post-paid service. Then the simple fix here is for this lousy trashy company to step into the 21st century and offer prepaid plans instead. The only reason they opt to use post-paid is to lock people in. It's not for our benefit as consumers. I really detest this company. Everyone who has ever dealt with Comcast for home internet, cable tv, or any other service has horror story to share. I want people to avoid this lousy company and drive it out of business. That's why I comment.

Nobody is defending anything other than the truth. I hate the company too but for legitimate reasons. There are plenty of them as well so no need to fabricate anything as you are currently doing.

There's absolutely no reason to act like standard business practice is a worthy reason for vitriol when all it does it dilute the real unethical crap they pull.

This is the same process across the board for ANY post-paid service. Try getting a car loan w/o a SSN. I guess you can just get a pre-paid car loan... oh, that's right, you can... it's called paying cash. Most post-paid providers will also do the same thing and accept a large cash deposit against any future unpaid bills. My guess is that you have no interest in that either. The alternative is to run your credit history to weigh your ability and desire to keep current on your post-paid bills. It's 100% relevant & common practice despite you shouting to the opposite.

Instead, you just want to make crap up about the big bad boogey man that is Comcast because it makes you feel better. Why invent things to hate them over when the real things they actually do are enough? Like I said, they do enough lousy stuff to customers w/o you having to make crap up to besmirch Comcast's good name. lol

Look man, no one likes Comcast. They're one of the worst companies in America, but most corporations are sleazy. Who cares? I bought the phone outright, my one month of service has been canceled, then next month I'll unlock it. No one is locked in. What are you talking about? Internet services are a monopoly, but no one is being forced to use their phone service. It's a great deal on one of the best midrange phones out there, and I'm willing to jump through small hoops and wait a couple of months to get it.

I've never owned a Pixel phone before, and I'm well aware that some previous models have been unreliable, but I haven't seen any reports on the lower end 4a having any issues, so I would hope that the 4a 5g is also dependable. All my phones have been Samsung, but I didn't see a deal on the S10e that I wanted in time, so I pulled the trigger on this. The A71e 5g is gigantic. Even this one is slightly bigger than I would have liked. It barely fits on the inside of my coat pocket, but it's manageable. The first thing I do when I get a phone is to put a screen protector on it, then cover it in an Otterbox case. I really don't care if the back of the phone is plastic, glass, or aluminum. What difference does it make? It's functional and quick with no bloatware.

I find it very hard to believe that you've never had to give out your social security number before. Your solution is for Comcast to offer you prepaid service, so you don't have to? What about other utilities? I'm not saying this to be rude, but do you still live with your parents?

Quick data point:

I activated on March 3. It has been 48 days.

Paid first month, paid second month. So, $32.

Chatted today online. Asked to close account. Done. Asked to unlock phone. Done.

Put my VZ sim in the phone and it works great. I have no idea if I'll receive a refund for the remaining month, but I have bigger worries I guess!

Not sure why everyone is concerned with canceling within a month or two to get back to spending hundreds of dollars for the same network. It seems counterintuitive to me to save money on a device and then make efforts to get back to wasting money. I think more people should look into something like Xfinity Mobile as a viable option than they realize.

After having VZW for about a decade, my wife and I switched over to Xfinity because we have their home internet. We went from paying like $150/mo to paying just $12 most months. That's crazy. On heavy mobile data use months we pay like $24 or $30 total. Our coverage is indistinguishable from when we had VZW for mobile and we save like $100/mo. The only regret is that we didn't do it sooner.


Not to sound like a commercial for Xfinity/Comcrap because I hate their customer service with a fiery passion but for what we pay it's a pretty Slickdeal. Now that I see them offering occasional phone deals it's even better.


When we signed up they had a smokin' deal on the Samsung S10e which we've used for like a year and a half now with good luck. The phone works well but I HATE the bloatware Samsung crap they force feed you. I can't wait to get back into a Pixel as we had 1, 2 & 3 and it's far and away the best Android experience available. Holding out for the Pixel 5 Xfinity deal and them on it!

Do you really think that slickdealers who are savvy enough to take advantage of this deal, are also at the same time too dense to figure out if Xfinity wireless makes financial sense for them?

There's really no reason to be condescending. Have you read the posts contained within this thread to try to make it seem like my post is so unreasonable?


I've seen lots of posts in this very thread indicating that many people here have done exactly that. In fact, the post right above mine that trigged my post is someone saying they canceled Xfinity Mobile service and went back to VZW. I'm sure they have their reasons but, after having switched myself for a year-and-a-half, I just can't imagine what those reasons are to spend $100+ additional each month for what amounts to roughly the same user experience.


This is why I felt compelled to recommend that those who are looking to save money actually look into using and staying with the service rather than finding creative ways to jump ship back to their more expensive provider and waste all of that "savings" they just got on the phones with every month that passes.

If it were only me on the plan, I'd probably switch. I pay $120 for 3 lines (including tax, plus device payments). Xfinity would be $100 plus tax and fees. Whatever that is. I have 2 phones being paid off and there's a monthly discount on those phones so I can't pay them off and switch or I'd lose the discount. If you have an iPhone and want to upgrade every couple years (not me, but the others on my account), then you can get deals with VZ which probably make VZ a better deal.

Yes, I did read your post. It is completely reasonably if you assume that everyone else is in the same situation you're in. In other words, your "use case" is not universal.

A few years ago carriers were reporting that their average smartphone users were consuming 4-6GB/month (and rising). Xfinity's website is showing $15 for 1GB and $30 for 3GB. So if you're paying no more than $30/month even in your "heavy mobile data usage" months, you're using <3GB between the two of you, putting you well below average. Your personal situation simply doesn't apply to a lot of people.

Since you can't imagine why people would prefer Verizon over Xfinity, I thought I'd help you out with a few possible reasons. Off the top of my head:
- Xfinity throttles data speeds after 20GB
- unlimited data plan, or just needing/wanting >20GB/month of high speed data
- the $25 monthly line charge if you don't also pay for comcast tv or xfinity home internet
- people who still have bill credits with Verizon
- discounts with Verizon (corporate discount, grandfathered plans, etc)
- employer reimbursement that may be limited to certain wireless providers

So, yes, I don't disagree with you - there's really no reason to be condescending. You could've simply asked people why they preferred Verizon over Xfinity; instead, you just assumed that people on a deals site didn't know enough to do a basic price comparison.
