Yes, It’s True! Google Pixel Works on the Sprint Network Too!
Don’t believe the hype – Pixel is not exclusive to Verizon’s network so why pay more? Switch to Sprint and save 50 percent off most current competitor rate plans or choose the best unlimited rate plan among U.S. carriersThere seems to be a lot of buzz lately about which U.S. carriers can support the hot, new Google Pixel smartphone. Let’s be clear. Pixel and Pixel XL, the first smartphones designed and marketed exclusively by Google, have been available for activation on the Sprint Network since they debuted.
Don’t get fooled into thinking Pixel only operates on Verizon’s network. Sprint has tested and certified Google Pixel on the Sprint Network - it works great! Best of all, customers who switch to Sprint can save 50 percent off most current competitor rate plans and T-Mobile doesn’t have the best rate plan pricing if you are looking for two lines with unlimited data.
Here are the easy steps to use Pixel on the Sprint Network:
- Buy your unlocked Google Pixel at an authorized retailer or the Google Store.
- Buy a SIM kit online at www.sprint.com or visit a Sprint store near you.
- Choose any Sprint rate plan and activate your device by bringing it with the SIM kit to a Sprint store near you or call 1-866-275-1411.
