Republic Wireless adds the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL to its "Bring Your Own Phone" program


Once again, Verizon announced that it will be the exclusive carrier for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in the United States, but that doesn't mean that consumers in the country won't be able to use it on other networks.

After T-Mobile announced that it will pay 50% of either the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL price when you bring it to its network, another US carrier announced that it will support both Google's smartphones – Republic Wireless.

The MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) carrier has just confirmed that the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be compatible with its “Bring Your Own Phone” (BYOP) program.

Android fans can purchase the unlocked Pixel 2 via Google Store for $649 (64GB) or $749 (128GB), and bring it to Republic Wireless. The same goes for the Pixel 2 XL which can be had for $849 (64GB) or $949 (128GB).

Those who choose Republic Wireless' BYOP program can pair their Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL devices with the carrier's plans starting as low as $15 a month. It's worth noting that all Republic Wireless plans include unlimited talk, text and WiFi data, but you'll have to pay extra for cellular data.

You couldn’t pay me to leave Verizon, what good is it having a grad phone like the Pixel when you can’t even get service on T-Mobile or those other s**tty carriers
