    Post Pixel 3XL that works on AT&T, should also work on Sprint?

    Thanks for the quick reply and help! I suspected it wouldn't be an issue, but figured I'd ask the experts to be safe. Thanks again!

    Thread Pixel 3XL that works on AT&T, should also work on Sprint?

    I know they sell an unlocked, Verizon and GoogleFi versions of the phone. The unlocked will work on Sprint, AT&T, etc... but I've found a seller that says it will work on AT&T (and other GSM), but not Sprint. Are they correct or should it work on Sprint too? Any help is appreciated, cracked...

    Post Computers don't recognize XL2 to transfer files

    Just to bump this thread... I bought a set of USB-C cables the other day on amazon and tried them out with my P2XL and no random disconnects and no issues copying files! I've only tried it once so far, but left phone plugged in for 30min and never lost connection. I can't post a link to it...

    Could be a cable issue. that seems to be the cause for me....and still is unless I use this one specific cable I have. here's the thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/pixel-2-xl/help/computers-dont-recognize-xl2-to-t3692322

    Post Computers don't recognize XL2 to transfer files

    I got the OTA the other day and plugged mine up to work PC with a random USB-C cable and mine still does the same thing. Stays open for a min and then window closes out and reopens, then just repeats indefinitely.

    Post Computers don't recognize XL2 to transfer files

    I updated the Android P in hopes that MAYBE it'd solve this stupid issue. Nope it definitely does not, in fact it makes it worse. The "bad" cables still initially connect to the phone and they use to take a minute or 2 before it disconnects and reconnects, sometimes longer. With Android P, I...

    Post Computers don't recognize XL2 to transfer files

    Thanks for this!! So far so good! I just gave this a shot and so far the computer recongizes my phone and hasn't randomly closed out. And this is with a known "bad" USB cable! I'll test it during the day, as well as at home too, and report back on the thread!

    Post Computers don't recognize XL2 to transfer files

    I really do wish it was the case. I've tried all of those and no luck. All my USB cables work initally, but then when digging around the folders or trying to copy the window will close and open back up under Pixel folder. Then this repeats. I have 1 USB cable that works 100% of the time, but...

    Post Computers don't recognize XL2 to transfer files

    Mine doesn't work with any USB2 or USB3 or USB3.1 ports. Didn't work with old computer and doesn't work with new one either.....or any other computer. It only consistently works with a certain USB2 cable on any USB on computer.

    I got a replacement P2XL and still same issues. Neither phone ran beta. Seems to be fine for a few days after a fresh install and then have issues. I'm not sure what is issue, just forced to use the same cord that always works.

    Post RCS (Enhanced Messaging Feature) Android Messages Not Working on Pixel 2 XL - Sprint

    Nice find, that's great to hear! Fingers crossed that and the web link preview will be implemented soon. I hope possibly even the option of converting any text over 160 characters straight to MMS. I have this option set in Textra and I know everyone I text appreciate it. I just wish it...

    Spot on! I still prefer textra for now and don't care a out RCS anyways. If I could have a dark theme of Android Messages I'd probably roll over and use it.

    I have missed specifically RCS messages in textra. Everything else is good. I turned it off and so far so good, not sure what dictates SMS or RCS, but think this fixed it. Fingers crossed!

    Post RCS (Enhanced Messaging Feature) Android Messages Not Working on Pixel 2 XL - Sprint

    Wanted to bump this thread. I'm not seeing an advanced feature option on my P2XL in Messaging app. I actually want to turn off RCS because since I'm using Textra and apparently miss random RCS messages without knowing. I want to turn off chat feature, correct? TIA!

    Post Connecting P2XL to USB-C to USB-C via motherboard

    Wiped it yesterday and tried again with the OEM USB-C to USB-C cable, no luck even recognizing the phone, even to charge. I did however use a USB-A to USB-C 3.0 cable that didn't ever work originally and it copy 15gb of music without an issue. I'll keep testing, as well as test it on the...

    Post Connecting P2XL to USB-C to USB-C via motherboard

    The only option I have is to use my 1 cord to transfer. I usually am transferring several gigs at a time. I never had this issue with same cords for my original pixel XL. What gets me is I even has issues using us chargers even. They say it's charging but never gain any charge. Kind of...

    I can't figure this out... I have an ASRock Motherboard Motherboards Z370 EXTREME4 motherboard with a USB-C output on it and using Win10. I've tried using the P2XL USB-C to USB-C cord to connect my phone to the computer to transfer files. I get nothing that shows up on the phone, yet...

    Post Computers don't recognize XL2 to transfer files

    I only tried it 2x on mine. It recognized my phone, I select transfer files, usually a 2-3gb worth. Both times it closed the window and opened another window, just like if I unplugged the phone and plug it back in. On the Z77, if I left it plugged in, it'd randomly do the same thing and keep...

    Post Computers don't recognize XL2 to transfer files

    I didn't know about other mobo's too. It definitely is sounding like phones. I haven't reached out to ASRock yet or Google, but definitely will be since arrows are pointing towards our phones yet some phones have no issues.

    Post Computers don't recognize XL2 to transfer files

    There's GOT to be a solution to this issue. I think I'll report the issue to ASRock and see what they say. As of now eliminated Windows version and it's not likely our phones. I haven't thoroughly tested another computer other than work with every single USB-C cord I have, but I need to. If...

    Post Beta 8.1 gets official release?

    Took the gamble anyways, so wanted to update in case anyone else happened to be searching for the same answer. It does NOT wipe your phone, just have to make sure you are indeed are on the official release and all should be good. :)

    Post Beta 8.1 gets official release?

    Thanks for the reply! That's my assumption as well, I just can't 100% confirm it. It wouldn't be the worse thing if it wiped it, but would rather not have to copy 100gb worth of stuff just in case.....and would rather not have to set it up again. :) Anyone 100% know?

    Im sorry...this is probably a dumb question, but can't confirm one way or another, even when searching...

    Thanks! I don't consider that bad at all. I got mine in yesterday and downloading the GCam now to try out. Here's my thoughts, so far: After using the XL2 for over a week, it’ll take me a day or 2 to get use to the smaller size for sure. Phone feels extremely solid and noticeably comfortable...

    Thanks for the confirmation, I just HAVE to try this phone out before I decide. I feel like I'll always regret it if I don't. Of course the camera seems like the main downfall with the phone, but the camera specs are up to par so it's something that can be fixed with software I believe. Is the...

    Post Now that Pixel 2 is out, is anyone tempted to switch?

    I'll have to see Amazon's return policy on phones, but will probably do just that. I can't help but lean towards the PH-1 at the price point and the issues the XL2 supposedly has. Squeeze feature, for me, is a gimmick. I accidentally activate it more than when I actually want it.

    I went from a 128gb XL to 128gb XL2. I have had no issues (clicking, high pitch, screen burn in) with my XL2 after a week, but the $500 price of the Essential is very tempting considering that's half the price of the XL2. With the XL2 being mostly hardware issues, it has me scared to even...
