I've recently ordered an Unlocked Pixel 2 from the Google store, but under Developer Options, "OEM unlocking" is greyed out and i can't change it. Did Google run out of Google versions and sold me an Unlocked Verizon phone?
CID Checker shows:
[ro.boot.cid] : 00000000
[ro.bootloader] : mw8998-002.0059.00

I just checked and mine is showing the same thing. Ordered direct from Google, although I'm using it with Verizon, would that make a difference?

Can you change the "OEM unlocking" option?

Nope, mines completely blocked off as if it were a Verizon model phone.



I just called Google support an they will get back to me in about 45 minutes, and said if they cannot solve it I'll have a replacement shipped to me. Seems to be the only solution for us at this time as others have had the same issue.

I also gave Google support a call and told them about my issue. They told me they had someone call just before me about the same issue. Anyway, they had me send them a debug report and said they'll get back to me later.

Sounds like possibly the VZW Sim is converting into VZW pixel with locked BL

i went to the verizon store to play with their pixels (wait, that did not sound right). anyhow, i tried to enable developer options, and could not on neither the regular nor the XL. I could enable the secret System Tuner UI. I tried tapping several thousand times on the build number, but nothing.

also, I did notice the screen burn in for the XL, but no burn in for the regular.

just some food for thought....

I've never had a VZW Sim in my Pixel 2. I use T-mobile.
