Hi, everyone so I was trying to unlock my T-Mobile Pixel 4 XL the other night and I was having a problem with the person previously than the ones that ended helping me to get it done. I told them I just wanted to unlock it for a trip, I didn't want to tell them I wanted to root it. They said I needed to make so many payments for a temporary unlock and pay the phone in full for a full unlock. That didn't work. So the next day, I just said I needed to unlock my bootloader and the only way to do it was if the phone was unlocked. At this point, I had the phone for a week, but they did it, I was able to unlock the phone in the app and OEM unlock in developers menu and root like everyone else. I provided some screenshot on the twitter conversation.

I tried through the chat function in the TMobile app. Even threatened to switch carriers and they stood their ground. Said they 'respect' my decision.

Excuse my ignorance, but what are the advantages of rooting this device if you don't mind me asking.. I'm new to my Pixel XL. Thanks for your patience in advance

Well, I'm going through twitter support now. Of course the first thing they ask is if the device is paid off. They were really cool about it but basically told me I'm SOL.

I really wanted to avoid having to go through a grey-area unlocking service.

Holy shitttt . It actually worked for me ! It took a week but it worked ! It was from someone on the T-Mobile app. I basically told them how I loved the phone but I was disappointed that I couldn't use it to it's fullest potential so I needed it unlocked. and that I have paid more than a half of the device off so I really would like it unlocked or I would like to switch to a cheaper phone. The lady was very nice to me and said that she would work that out for me as best as she could and she really did it for me !
