Odd, because that's the behavior I've had since the first update on Day 1....Here's another change I've noticed since updating.
Previously, I never ever saw my carrier details or the WiFi calling option displayed at the top of the phone.
Now, when I pick up the phone, just before unlocking I see my carrier details and WiFi calling scrolling on the top left of the screen.
It is a pain in the ass, I get you. It was super stealth with P2XL and P4XL. Now it's a f.kin spotlight in your face
Thanks for the suggestion of using an inactive sim card. I am on Verizon in the US and bought an unlocked p6 from Amazon but hadn't received the update. So I tried a Mint sim card (t-mobile network) and it worked.I bought an unlocked Pixel 6 off Bestbuy & am now using it in India. Did not get the 037 (currently on 036) update via OTA, tried VPN as well.
Just popped in an inactive AT&T sim i had & now the device was able to identify a pending OTA of 14.56 MB. Awaiting for it to complete installation, will report back once done.
-I did not use any VPN, just connected via my regular WiFi. I couldn't install the OTA via sideload as i don't have a personal windows Laptop to execute the steps.
I had the same issue using Windows PowerShell switching to Windows command prompt fixed itHello
I have an unlocked Pixel 6 bought from the Google Store but I'm using it abroad. I haven't got the update yet and when I try to sideload it I get the message "can't read oriolexx.zip"
What can I get to get the update? I tried putting a Lycamobile inactive sim and still nothing
Proper OTA sideload should bring you up, this time use the Pixel 6 OTA. As per OTA page (https://developers.google.com/android/ota):
