Unlocked pixel 6 purchased from Google Store NOT compatible
Ordered 3 phones straight from Google Store. Checked IMEI numbers at Xfinity store and all three come up as incompatible. Then went to Verizon site and they are compatible there. Asked Xfinity clerk what was up and was told Xfinity has some weird thing they are doing with the firmware to make it unique. That explanation makes NO sense to me as that would mean that any Pixel 6 not bought from Xfinity would be incompatible so why have BYOD?
Don't say your service is compatible with most Pixel phones on your BYOD phone page and then not support the latest phone coming straight from the vendor (Google), especially when you sell that same phone. The only explanation I can come up with for this craziness is that there must be some kind of clause in the deal with using Verizon's network that prevents Xfinity from supporting the latest phones unless purchased from Xfinity directly. Maybe in a few months these IMEI numbers will suddenly work. Rather than return $1800 of phones to Google, I'm moving my 3 lines to Verizon.
