        Answer

        It has IP53, which is NOT water resistant, it can withstand drops of water, while being vertical, but the phone has to stay virtual while drying. Also it does not entirely prevent from even dust...

        • Question
          Why is the phone 648 if financed, but 699 if not? 699 is the highest price for this phone anywhere in the US.   (1 Answer)

            Answer

            AFAIK.. If a phone is financed the sales tax which will be about $50 is due before you pickup the phone and the rest $649 is split into 24 to 30 month installments. Hence in total you will still be paying almost $699 in both cases.

              Answer

              No this does not come with the Pre-Order Gear VR offer (80 dollar value) but Best Buy is giving a 100 Best Buy Gift card and a FREE Chromecast with activation, So total of (135 promotional value) If you want the headset wait until it hits Best Buy Stores and get it if you want or spend the 100 on something else... I wish I could have ordered through Best Buy instead of having to go through Verizon :-/

              It is an unlocked phone, so I assume it is compatible with SIM card from other countries - is that correct?   (4 Answers)

                Answer

                Yes, the Pixel and Pixel do not have a SIM lock. You can put in a non-Verizon SIM card and the phone will work just fine. However, the Pixel and Pixel XL phones from Verizon (for whatever reason) are shipped with the BOOTLOADER locked. This means you can't flash a custom ROM on the phone.

                  Yes! I am currently using my Pixel XL with AT&T. Before I turned the phone on for the first time, I popped the AT&T SIM card into the phone and when it turned on, it worked flawlessly.
