I know they lock them down, but I checked developer settings just for giggles and I noticed the OEM unlocking setting says "Unavailable on carrier-locked devices". So my wishful thinking is that after 60 days (after device is paid off, or after it's been active for 60 days, I don't know), Verizon unlocks the phone to use on other carriers....does this mean we can unlock the bootloader after 60 days? Or is it just carrier unlocking as the setting suggests?

I haven't felt the need to root my phones since my OG Pixel XL, because they were so good, but this just peaked my curiosity.

Uhm, why don't you just give your carrier a call and ask them?

No, they don't unlock the bootloader - just the SIM for use on other carriers.

SIM unlocking the Pixel 6 allows the OEM unlocking:


There is a good chance it's the same for the Pixel 6 Pro :)
It is, for T-Mobile.
Verizon, being the ass carrier they are, has always restricted the bootloader even on pixels in the past. Why anyone still buys their locked phones is beyond me, but hope for the best...

Have any of the Verizon Pixels been unlocked other than the OG for some lucky individuals?

I keep telling myself I'm going to go through the Google store for my next phone, but I got $700 off this through VZW with my trade-in and an Update coupon, I couldn't pass that up.

    The only chance that you'll be able to unlock a Verizon variant is if something happens such as with the original Pixel running Android 7.10 or lower, or some other super rare new exploit. You shouldn't even think about holding your breath that it could happen.

    Not that I've ever heard of.
