Re: Why is O2 not stocking Google Pixel phones

I believe that o2 will VERY SOON start selling the Google range (MAYBE when the Pixel 3 launches if not slightly before!) I intend to purchase one myself (depending on price!).

Re: Why is O2 not stocking Google Pixel phones

I'm a Google Pixel fan girl. I had the original Pixel, and my Pixel 3 is the best handset I've owned since the fab HTC One (M7). I'm due an upgrade in November but I'm being offered an early upgrade now via O2 Refresh, their way of trying hooking me into a THREE year contract. If the possibility of the upcoming Pixel 5 was an option, they'd have hooked me but... I'll be jumping back to EE as soon as I can.

3 years isn't compulsory.

You can select your term anywhere between 3 months and 3 years.

Re: Why is O2 not stocking Google Pixel phones

Even so, they could've had me hooked but their lack of phone choice (ie: no Google) means they've lost me as a customer. I was with EE for 15 years (I'm brand loyal when given good service/choice). I jumped ship to O2 in 2018 cuz the Pixel 3 was cheaper, but I'll be jumping back to EE after only 2 years with O2. That speaks volumes. 15 years versus 2 years. Limiting choice (especially not stocking a huge global brand such as Google) is just plain short sighted.

We'd all agree with that......

The Pixel 4a has been delayed to August if current rumours are to be believed and the earliest date for the 5 is October. So no one knows who will carry it, so a patience might be good.

The stocking of handsets is a strange business, as i have learnt, and it all depends on volume and the price the networks pay for the handsets.

I remember a few years ago a network paid 7 figures to a manufacturer to range a handset as an exclusive....
