On various sites for the 2 XL it says guaranteed updates for 3 years. Is it 3 years from release or 3 years from when you purchased it? Did not look into the nitty gritty, yet. Thanks for posting. At minimum as per your chart looks like minimum support is not THIS Oct but next. More is good either way :)
Yeah, the best source is always directly from Google (which was the one that I linked). Guaranteed updates with Pixel phones are dated from release, not purchase.

Any reason when I try to purchase this as a current customer it shows as $390 plus $15x24 upon checkout?
It's a glitch in their system. If you add it to the cart, it should correctly show $0 due now.

The deal expired on the 2nd and this thread should be marked expired. The worst part of RFD are these deals remaining open days and weeks past expiry. Feels like I'm the only one that reports expired deals.

I just got the deal today. I think you jumped the gun on your comments this time.

I think the mods are pretty good at moving threads to expired deals.

RFd members are also pretty good at commenting dead deal.

It’s ok to be wrong.

Just got everything set-up. Wow, Viper4Android makes a huge difference in optimizing the 2 XL's stereo speakers. Lovely. Worth rooting the phone just to get this alone. Forget the no ads via Adaway and the Youtube Vanced app trumping the regular Youtube app.

Decided to use the "Bootleggers" ROM on XDA. Everything great so far and do not see anything but. "Now playing" works nicely on the lock/home screen. Active edge, nice. Pretty slick let me tell you :)

Different strokes for different folks :)

Most I would imagine will want to keep things stock. For OTA updates, you push one button to update and you're done. All your apps and settings remain intact. Flashing takes a bit more time but can customize more... and usually squeeze a little more out of the phone.

For those that want to keep it stock, you can install "blockada" or "Adclear" from XDA to block ads without root, "Youtube Vanced" is also now available without root. Highly recommended to replace the standard Youtube app. Viper4Android, need root for this one however.

No gift card at Wal-Mart in Calgary today (Friday). Even had the rep double check his system.

Great phone. I've had one since last year's BB L-tab price match @WM.

Just a heads up on this phone. It doesn't cast (screen share) to tv unless you have a Chromecast unit. -- Due to this, I refuse to replace/upgrade the wife's G6 which casts perfectly. I know this may not be an issue for most, but it is an issue for some.

Ok so no $100 GC, couple posters earlier this week got lucky (it appears)

Deal still ongoing, checked again to make sure. If you are not seeing the same prices as in the OP, not sure what's up but try a different browser, clear cookies, etc. Add the phone to cart to see if the price changes to what it should be. If not you can arrange a call back from Koodo to place the order by phone.

The 2 XL isn't going to be everyone's first choice, the P20 PRO, see is on Tab extra large now even after the P30 has been released. What a joke. Was eying both these phones, glad I got the 2 XL since Huawei locks their phones down tight.

Just a quick question:

Do I start getting charged my monthly plan on the day of delivery? Or the day that I activate the sim?

What if I don’t activate the sim?
