My wife's phone is android, so I have to be adept enough to troubleshoot any issues on there lol. I like pixel's clean look, I used to have samsung and htc android phones which were loaded with their own stuff I couldn't get rid of.. then when they discontinued support of their own apps, it was basically useless bloatware hanging around.
You want a screen smaller than 4.7"? Astonished Face IMO, 4.7" is the absolute bare minimum for usability. I have an original SE that I just leave in the car permanently just to connect to Apply Carplay for the music. but if I had to use it as a phone, even on a semi-regular basis, that screen would be way to small.

Hehe, it's funny how revisionist history is in people's minds.

My first smartphone had a 2.8" screen, with a stylus. It was 100% 'usable'.

My next smartphone had a 3.7" screen, it was capacitive touch, and was 100% 'usable'.

While I MUCH prefer the larger screens of today, I know someone with the original SE and they still prefer that size (they've rejected upgrading to other phones due to larger screen sizes).

Just because YOU find something unusable doesn't mean that's universal.

Apparently no one told you Rogido is the sole authority on smartphone usability? How dare you question his authority and might? /s

You guys know what "IMO" means, right? Yeah, I didn't think so. :rolleyes:

Oh, nevermind smartphones with 2.8" screens. Do you remember when there were NO smartphones? People were happily using and showing off their shoebox-sized dumbphones. No doubt those would be perfectly usable for you too, along with your beta VCR? lol. "Necessity is the mother of invention". Look up the meaning of that too.

There are convoluted ways to get Google play store on a p40. I have to wait for my tab balance to get a little smaller. Pretty nice phone, not big either

Could try calling and asking if they can help you out with the tab.. the nice lady at first offered to half of my tab at $45, but said she could do the full $90 after a little negotiations.

I only see iPhone 11 for $31
I don’t see iPhone 11 Pro for that price.

Is that an error in the op description?

Do you know how old this post is?

There are currently hardly any CPO phones on Koodo, so yes, the prices may well have increased.

Did you have tab bonus with your tab balance? Did she waive that too? What plan are you on? Thinking Face

Yeah. Glad vast majority of people are not close-minded and tech illterate as those users. Otherwise we'll still be riding horses while mailing faxes just because it's "usuable". iT's rEvIsIoNisT hIsTorY.

These phones come and go on a continuous basis. If you're looking for one, keep an eye on the Koodo website. Reporting it as expired makes the entire thread disappear.

Is anyone else getting:

Your current plan is not eligible with Tab Basic
To proceed please change your Tab selection. Change Tab

I'm on the $40/6 GB PM migration plan. I just tried and I can get phones on Tab Basic.
