    Of course this is a good thing for T-Mobile and Android fans. I have to say that I used a Google Pixel 1 for a while and I found the phone to be fun to use and it got upgraded to Android P, I believe. I also found the camera and video better than the iPhone 8 that I was using at the time. The only problem that keeps me with iOS and iPhone is iMessage and FaceTime as well as the fact that the Google Pixel on T-Mobile did not support RCS. Try sending a high res photo or video through text message and it shows up on the recipient's phone looking like from the 1990s.

    Taking an unlocked, carrier-agnostic phone and locking and crippling it, yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

    What has T-Mobile done to cripple the phone?

    The 3a is $400 The 3 is $800, about $100 less as S10. Is the 3a at least a little more sophisticated, spec wise as, wife's S7? Sounds like 3a might work for us.

    This was the T-Mobile support teams reply to RCS on the new Pixel.

    No word for sure, other phones didn't support it at launch but supported it later - keep an eye out though, we know it's important and we'll always be an advocate for the features our customers ask for. Thank you! ^BrentHayashi"



    BTW, only Sprint and US Cellular support true RCS with the Google Cloud. T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T have a proprietary RCS that has to be added to every new phone's software.
