It is compatible, I used it for several years until the battery capacity degraded. One thing to keep in mind that the OS is no longer updated by Google.
07-27-2021 at 08:37 PM
compatible with tmobile even for wifi calling?
07-28-2021 at 03:09 AM
just checked my phone and it does have VoLTE switched to on. I have the Verizon model Pixel 2 XL with Tmobile.

I believe so, Pixel phones should all be carrier unlocked.
07-29-2021 at 12:47 PM
Just got mine today. Yes. The bootloader can also be unlocked.
07-30-2021 at 03:53 PM
tried 64gb black model with Tracfone Tmobile sim and Total wireless sim.

Both worked.

It's upgradeable to Android 11 via standard/OEM software update
07-29-2021 at 10:20 AM
Based on date of manufacture but these should have Android 11.

Yes. See my other comment re: confirmation from Mint Support about the phone being unlocked
07-30-2021 at 03:57 PM

It's on Android 11, last security update October 5, 2020

The Google Photos storage thing basically, and it can be updated to Android 11. Or just because these go for $150+ on ebay. Otherwise the V35 is better in a number of ways.

I'll second this ding on what Amazon has allowed 3rd parties to perpetrate with the Use/S&D label as of late via Amazon Warehouse and woot!. When I buy the woot! versions I have consistently had to buy 2 or 3 to ensure I could pick among phones that had critically bad problems which could never have passed even a reasonable grading system.

An S7 whose home button pops out when turned over? A Pixel for which half the screen had started to pop out of the phone frame... because the battery was starting to bloat? Yeah, all of these were Scratch and Dent rather than Unusable by Anyone Other Than a Phone Repair Shop.

Good luck!

WOW....Mint Mobil's web site:

No phone number to call them.
No email address to email them.
No live chat service to chat with them.

Seems like customer service is not in their vocabulary.
From Mint's Customer Service via chat:


"09:22
All our Androids devices are unlocked if you paid them full."

And

"09:27
When the phone is new it does not have the boot loader locked."

Enjoy fellow SDers 😊

Soooo tempted to get this as a WiFi/general use device. It'd be a bonus if it actually ended up being unlocked.

You can still get a half-decent Pixel 2 scratch and dent from Woot, that suits your purposes, for around $60

That user was isolating his usage to wifi, which doesn't require more expansive sizes. And you are correct in that Woot isn't the best in S&D supplies, but may be the most accessible to this forum.

Same here! Really interested to know the bootloader situation. Haven't bought mobiles from mint before, so I'd also like to know the return policy, should the mobile end up being Verizon variants.

Unlocking policy as many are going to ask. It's still unknown as I'm linking this if this phone comes unlocked.

Return policy for devices is at the bottom of the page. Seems like you can return it within 7 days if unopened without a restocking fee. May have to pay for your own shipping back though.

I guess this could be bought by those feeling nostalgic as the last, best LG phone. This is such a good unit (even with the software fixed at Android 11 patched from the end of last year) that it's almost comical to see it at this price (consider that you're getting access to one of the best phone cameras around... for $100?!?!).

This phone might even do well for many as a daily driver, though I'd want to recommend a newer Pixel if at all possible (the Pixel 3 isn't much spendier, though could be tougher to find new), I just never realized how big the gap was between production and sales for this model that we're still seeing these as new in the secondary market:
