    Post Is your Pixel 5 able to access 4G Network?

    Thank you for the response. Initially I thought the same. However, the speed I get when it shows LTE, is much much slower than I was getting when my P4XL was on 4G. Which is why I am curious. I guess, if Google showing 4G as LTE for simplicity, then it means that this phone's reception is worse...

    Thread Is your Pixel 5 able to access 4G Network?

    It seems my Pixel 5 (unlocked) is stuck between LTE and 5G. Well, LTE most of the time and occasionally 5G when around town. If I understand correctly, P5 is backward compatible with 4G, but it never picks up 4G signal even when I am at my home where my P4XL would always have 4 bars for 4G...

    Post VZW System Apps

    Thanks for the reply. Although, there's only one problem, I actually do not have any apps, they only popup in rooted apps. I think the reason behind is when I upgraded to 8.1, I had the sim in during the download, but then I took the sim out and restarted the phone then installed the update...

    Thread Can I trade-in rooted phone?

    Just got my trade-in kit in the mail today. It does not have any in-depth information, neither does any of the emails I received in regards to trade-ins. Just curious, can I turn in my unlocked+rooted XL? Or do I have to unroot/lock it prior to sending it in? I successfully traded in a rooted...

    Post Pixel 2 Pre-Order is Live

    It will come with the My Verizon spyware. Read it yesterday somewhere, can't remember where. Or maybe I read you can order it through My Verizon app. Ugh...sleepyhead. I am on VZW too, but prefer mine's clean so both last year and this year picked up unlocked version.

    Post Return unlocked Verizon Pixel XL to BB and wait for Google to get in stock or keep?

    Well, I bought mine from google store in hope for it to stay untouched from the corporate greedy hands of vzw, but unfortunately the first update I installed was vzw-exclusive update pushed to my google bought XL :eek: On the other hand, fortunately, I already unlocked it before taking in the...
