Now that the black Friday sale is no more, I must say all the grief and effort in purchasing a pixel 3a has been worth it. Without doubt I have never owned such a quality phone. It is incredible.

The simplicity of copying data from my old android phone, the dark mode, the photography. It's amazing. I would pay every penny the Google store asks for it. You would not be disappointed

Finally received my refunds. I contacted customer care one last time today and they manually issued 2x €179.99 refunds and the €179.99 they took out twice is still there as the payments cleared.

All in all a terrible experience but I did manage to pick up one for €230 and it'll be here Wednesday Excited to see if it was worth all the hassle

Do they check though? If you have a Tesco SIM but select Eir as your network, do you still get the verification text?

Remember, that text is all that's important in order to complete the purchase online, it doesn't matter one iota if the port actually succeeds or not.

Tried that. Tried all the other networks and this time no verification code text (even with pressing resend) to the Tesco number. Other cancelled times Tesco was available and I always got a code.

Tesco and Lyca both gone from the drop down porting options. Selecting other operators doesn't work for text verification purposes.

Probably a coincidence. I used a brand new Eir sim, no calls, no text sent. Got the phone and actually the port failed. They tried it for couple of days and I guess gave up after that.

Solaris10 all pixel phones seem to have screen uniformity issues to some degree if you swap it out you have a very good chance of receiving a similar or worse replacement for 179 its easier to live with .

For €179, this was definitely the bargain of the year. I need more than 64GB storage, and already have a first gen Pixel or else I would have gone through all the effort to pick one up too.
