T-Mobile will return 50% of the cost of your new unlocked 32GB Pixel if you bring it to the Un-carrier
Just because the Google Pixel is advertised as a Verizon exclusive doesn't mean that you can't use it on another network. T-Mobile points out that the handset has been tested on its 4G LTE pipeline. If you smell a deal brewing, read on. Starting tomorrow (which is October 28th), you can hook up your unlocked Pixel with T-Mobile's network and receive back 50% of the cost of the phone. That means up to $325 will be coming back to you. All you have to do is sign up for T-Mobile One and you will find a $13.55 credit applied to your monthly bill for 24 months. That works out to approximately $325, half the price of a 32GB Google Pixel.

T-Mobile One offers you unlimited talk, text and data for your Pixel. Unlimited video is streamed at 480p (DVD resolution) unless you sign up for T-Mobile One Plus or purchase an HD Day Pass. Those among the top 3% of data users on the T-Mobile network (greater than 26GB of data consumed each month) are subject to data prioritization. That's a fancy word that means your data speed could be reduced at certain times until the beginning of your next billing cycle.


So if you think that buying the Google Pixel means being locked into Verizon, the truth is that you can deploy the phone on what T-Mobile calls the fastest 4G LTE pipeline in the U.S.

Good job done again by T-Mobile. Others may follow (again).

"All you have to do is sign up for T-Mobile One and you will find a $13.55 credit applied to your monthly bill for 24 months." What if we're already on T-Mobile One? Are we then ineligible?

Talk to a rep and I think it should still be possible.

I think I would have been happier to pay $200 and be locked in a 2 year contract just saying.

same here, wish Tmobile provides the option because some people would get phones at deeper discount prices and don't mind the contracts.

Twenty-four months of Tmobile, is like a death sentence, or a nightmare with no end. If only AT&T followed.

Even though no expandable memory means I would never get this phone, I would consider it for my wife. However, since her phone is on my family plan, there's no way I'm switching everyone to the One plan because I have several lines grandfathered to the old $20 and $30 unlimited plans. T-mobile needs to stop acting like people on older plans are the ugly stepchild of the family (or however that saying goes) and allow us to get the deals they put out.
