    Post Canadian S9+

    Please dont take this wrong or as an insult but if that answer above isnt enough info, you may be in over your head. Please research thoroughly if "flash a 965U firmware with odin" isnt all the info you need. That answer is all the info except direct links.

    Post Canadian (Bell) Pixel XL - Sim Unlocked?

    All Canadian Pixels are unlocked. I've used mine in Europe (Ireland) and it worked with no hastle or setup required. Put in foreign SIM and go. Enjoy those data rates over there. 20 Euro top up gets you free unlimited LTE data. Pisses me off every time I come back to Canada and pay the ****...

    Post LTE band 66

    Band 66 is AWS-3 and is a fairly new band used by carriers like Freedom Mobile(Wind), in Canada anyway. There are very few phones that support the band yet and the Pixel is not capable of it.

    Post Not updating. Is this because I'm on a generic build?

    The little Pixel has a problem with the update. Google is looking into it according to a report yesterday I read. I dont believe its generic or carrier specific, just a problem with the 5 inch model. http://www.androidauthority.com/google-pixel-install-problem-july-security-update-785395/

    Post Massive Burn In

    I RMA'd a phone a month ago because of the burned in nav bar. It is most noticable when the phone is booting on a white screen, but can be seen on any full screen view. A month in, the replacement is doing it as well. Statistically 2/2 is not good.

    Post Charging Cable loose

    I have this problem as well over the last month. I think its from the plastic inside th C-Port stretching as none of my cables are holding tight. Luckily for me, I have screen burn and have to send my phone in for replacements and can get this fixed as well.

    I bought it the day I got my Pixel XL and returned it a week later. It made the phone monsterously big in my opinion. Coming from a S7 Edge with the commuter, the Pixel commuter was way to bulky for me. I ended up picking up the Spigen Tough Armor and am happy I did. Sent from my Pixel XL...

    I think hes under the impression that a locked bootloader is the same as being carrier locked. chrisusa96, If I'm assuming correctly, You're under the impression that the lock image means you're phone is now locked down to Verizon? If that's the case, you're fine, it does come from Google...

    Post Is losing the warranty worth rooting? Is it ever not a good choice?

    One aspect to keep in mind is Samsung pay. From what I understand, Samsung Pay will not work once Knox is tripped. This mat not matter to you if you dont care to use Pay, but it may affect resale of the phone if someone interested did want Pay. Thats a negative I can think of. Just my 2 cents...

    Post Canadian S7/S7 Edge thread!

    I haven't heard anything about that before now but reading about makes it seem quite common. Now that you have successfully managed to change your CSC, maybe try flashing the full firmware from a different carrier via ODIN. Your CSC will stay as Koodo. That or maybe a factory reset will fix...

    Post Canadian S7/S7 Edge thread!

    One problem you will have is that Wind disables the LTE features of that phone due to Wind not supporting LTE. This means that you will not be able to use LTE unless you change your CSC code to a compatible carrier that does support it. To see what I mean, go into Settings/Mobile networks and...

    That is in fact how you change CSC. Doing that will completely wipe your device so be careful. It looks like you got an unlocked phone with the MTS bloat built in instead XAC CSC.
