Why not say CDMA instead of Verizon? Verizon is not the only company. To quote pcmag.com: In the US, Sprint, Verizon and US Cellular use CDMA. AT&T and T-Mobile use GSM. Most of the rest of the world uses GSM. The global spread of GSM came about because in 1987, Europe mandated the technology by law, and because GSM comes from an industry consortium. Also, Google Project Fi (United States) uses 1 GSM band, 2 UMTS bands, 6 LTE bands, and 2 CDMA bands. Compatible?
We usually get questions about if these are Verizon phones. We’re trying to be as transparent as possible so you have all the info you need.
Probably because there are 2 US models:
- Fully unlocked version (from Google) which has the unlockable bootloader.
- Version sold by Verizon, which, while it works on all US carriers, has a locked bootloader.
My point is, there’s a perception that just because Verizon sold it, that it only works on Verizon.
And yes, I know that every time Woot sells the Pixel phones, this comes up.
I bought a used Pixel for this exact price off eBay last month. I don’t like the non removable battery and missing SD card slot, and I wish it supported wireless charging. But I love the speed, camera, current version of Android, lack of non removable garbage carrier apps, and Google integration. Overall this is a reasonable deal for a great phone. Happy Thanksgiving woot
Just how scratched do the screens on these S&D units tend to be?
Here’s our definition:
Scratch & Dent: These units have been restored to full working order. They may have minor cosmetic blemishes to the body of the unit and surface scratches on the screen. This will not impair use of the device.
I bought a Galaxy II years and years ago and the phone was near perfect. You couldn’t tell it was refurb but the battery was garbage. Thankfully on a Galaxy II you could buy a new battery and easily replace it. It cost me $3.00 for the battery.
Honestly, I would be less concerned about the appearance of the phone and more concerned about the battery, especially since most you can’t self replace, at least not easily.
Pixel 2 is now on the market so expect this older model to drop in price quickly.
If you’re buying to use with Verizon, note that they have the Pixel 2 available today for $325. That’s a new phone, unscratched and undented, and the latest model. But then you have to pay for Verizon service.
Beware on the scratch and dents. I have ordered 4 from Woot. 2 were fine but 2 came with no batteries (not an issue here obviously). One of the two that came with no battery has a volume rocker that doesn’t work, the GPS doesn’t work and there is a foggy spot in the camera lens. Because they reimbursed me $30 for the missing battery, they refused to help me out with the phone that didn’t work. How can I test a phone without a battery?
Never again Woot, never again.
$325 for the low memory, $425 for the high memory. Considering there’s no SD slot, choose wisely (though, to me, 64 is PLENTY).
Send me a PM is you want a $20 off Project Fi referral code.
Does this phone support project fi? I thought all pixels did but I thought I’d ask before buying…
Yes! It’s what I have and it’s great. Let me know if you want to save $20 when you sign up for project Fi.
Please also note that with the Verizon deal, you must pay full price up front and receive a promo credit on your bill each month for the next two years. They also require you to use the unlimited data plan to receive the deal.
Guys I saw what you wrote about the scratch and dents but really how bad are them ?
Can you add device protection?
Sorry, are you talking an extended warranty? We have a SquareTrade warranty link at the top of the features.
