The phone comes carrier unlocked from wherever you buy it. To underscore this important detail, T-Mobile is offering a deal for Pixel owners to earn up to half of the price they paid for the smartphone. The catch? You have to sign up for T-Mobile One.
If you own a Pixel or have ordered one, you’ll need to switch carriers or upgrade to T-Mobile One, a new unlimited data plan from the “un-carrier.” After that, you’ll want to take advantage of the deal to get back up to 50 percent of your Pixel purchase. To do this, show T-Mobile your proof of purchase via its validation site.

You’ll only have 30 days to do this after the date of purchase of your Pixel, and the money you get back from T-Mobile will come in the form of bill credits for the next 24 months. That’s $325 you’ll get back if you purchased a 32GB Pixel, which means you’ll see $13.55 added in bill credits to your T-Mobile account.
What’s neat is if you’re already on T-Mobile One, CEO John Legere says you’ll be able to take advantage of the deal as well. T-Mobile One gives you unlimited data with unlimited tethering on 3G networks. The first line costs $70, and the second adds $50. Any additional line costs an extra $20. There’s also the One Plus plan, which adds full HD video playback and 4G unlimited tethering for $25 more per line.
The limited-time offer starts on October 28.
