 “Hey Google, where’s the best place to get the new Pixel smartphones?” Today, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) announced that the four latest Google Pixel smartphones -- the new Pixel 3a, new Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL – are coming to the Un-carrier starting online tonight at 9 PM PT and in-stores tomorrow. With this move, T-Mobile is putting an end to Verizon’s stranglehold on the Pixel, and that’s good news for wireless customers everywhere. To celebrate, existing and new Un-carrier customers can get up to $400 off any Pixel smartphone with an eligible trade-in, which means you can get the new Pixel 3a on us with bill credits.

“At T-Mobile, we’re all about bringing Americans more choice – and now, people finally get a choice when it comes to where to get their Google Pixel,” said John Legere, CEO at T-Mobile. “Verizon has held the Pixel hostage for years. Fortunately for Google – and consumers everywhere – those days are over!”

All four Pixel devices light up T-Mobile’s 600 MHz network, giving customers better coverage than before in buildings and rural areas. And if you want more speed, the Pixel 3 and 3 XL tap into T-Mobile’s LTE Advanced speed boosting technologies with 4x4 MIMO, 256 QAM, License Assisted Access (LAA) and carrier aggregation.

T-Mobile puts an end to Verizon’s grip on the Pixel as the latest flagships, the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, arrive at T-Mobile. And with up to $400 off, customers can get a Pixel 3a on us.

Plus, T-Mobile and Google are a match made in unlimited heaven.
