I had a locked T-Mobile iPhone 13 Pro Max. T-Mobile would not unlock my phone after I used it for a year on their network and paid it off because I bought it from a third party. I liked T-Mobile until this experience. Switched carriers to take advantage of $25 a month unlimited data plan through Boost mobile.
So I either keep T-Mobile after trying to unlock my phone for a month and numerous hours. Switch and save $45 a month and get a new device which is what I did. I could have bought a new iPhone 14 Pro Max but Apple was giving a poor trade in value and I would have had to pay around $4-500 or trade in my iPhone for a new Pixel 7 Pro for free?
I decided to take advantage of higher than market value trade in along with the sale price. I was nervous because of so many people talking about the Tensor G2 not being a good chip, the older screen tech, the optical fingerprint scanner, the new Samsung modem.
I have been using my Pixel 7 Pro now for a month and I haven't had any real issues with it. It has been fast and fluid, has a great camera set up, reception seems fine, and the screen is beautiful. The fingerprint sensor is as good as any I have used that are under screen.
