However, should you like the new any of the new smartphones designed by Google itself, but don’t want to commit to to 24-months locked-in period with Verizon, competing telecommunication company T-Mobile has a great lucrative proposal just for you. T-Mobile has come up with a promotional plan that could give you a refund of huge discount with up to 50% off on the purchase of a Google Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL.
To take advantage of the T-Mobile Pixel 2 and/or Pixel 2 XL smartphone promotional offering – marketed as a “BYOPixel” – all you need to do is purchase a 64GB Pixel 2 model from Google Play store, big-box consumer electronics chain Best Buy, Verizon or any other retailer.

A user can expect to receive the prepaid card within eight weeks after submitting the required proof of purchase or official receipt of your Pixel 2 phone.
The T-Mobile Pixel 2 and XL 2 promotional offering can also be availed by existing T-Mobile subscribers. Existing customers are required to add a line with T-Mobile ONE or Simple Choice Unlimited. Along with the announcement of the T-Mobile Pixel 2, the telco left no moment to attack and make fun of its nemesis Verizon. “Want the new Pixel 2 or 2 XL but think Verizon’s slowing network is your only choice? Well, listen up,” T-Mobile stated in a news release.
Moreover, T-Mobile president and CEO John Legere, stated that the rival carrier Verizon is forcing its customers to use the new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones on a mobile network that is incapable of “keeping up with unlimited data. And they claim the Pixel is ‘exclusive’ – just like they claim to have a better network. I’m here to tell you it’s all BS!” Additionally, Legere assured tot the Pixel 2 and 2 XL users that these new Google phones would work :great: on the T-Mobile network.
[agg-ad id=”434″ align=”left”]Furthermore, in an effort to advertise their Pixel 2 and 2 XL offer that would also benefit Google, the T-Mobile also hired mobile billboards to stroll around the prominent streets of San Francisco on the very day of the Google Pixel 2 and 2 XL announcement. So far, there have been no same plans announced by Sprint and AT&T to win the heart of the Pixel 2 customers.
It is noteworthy that the T-Mobile’s offer covers about half the retail price of the 64GB Pixel 2 model. In case, a consumer acquired the higher 128GB capacity, or the larger Pixel 2 XL, the savings will be lower. Nevertheless, getting a $325 worth of prepaid MasterCard refund is better than nothing. For a customer to qualify for the T-Mobile Pixel 2 and 2 XL offering, you will have to register within 30 days grace period of receipt of the phone. According to the telco, the offer is available for a limited time only, but no particular date has been stated as yet.
