We have a Google Pixel 2 XL (March 2018) and Pixel 3 (April 2019) that we own (off contract or paid out) that were using Telus SIMs.
Just received new Pixel 5 phones and switched the SIMs into the new phones, and now I want to sell the old ones.
I have never really dealt much with unlocking - would these phones be locked to Telus?
If so, can they be unlocked by taking them to a Telus kiosk in a mall - the wait on the support phone line is 1 hour currently.
Do the SIMs need to be in the old phones in order for them to be unlocked?
What do I need to do in advance in order to get them unlocked over the phone if that is the only option?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Also, just for future reference for other users, all Pixel generation of phones, like the Nexus before them, were sold carrier-unlocked in Canada.
It wasn't widely advertised but they were the first to do so with the original Nexus.
