Hmm, worrying. I thought Pixels were meant to be pretty smooth. Could it be this bug: https://www.tomsguide.com/us/pixel-3a-slowdown-digital-wellbeing,news-30056.html ?
This info should help clarify which MVNO's can be used in which operators handsets, BT Mobile MVNO is compatible with EE as EE are the main network so yes it will work - https://www.uswitch.com/mobiles/guides/mvnos-a-guide-to-coverage-and-pros-and-cons-of-virtual-networks/ . Also, for anyone not knowing Any iPhone sold directly through EE on or after 1 September 2015 unlock automatically after 18 months. If you have an iPhone from EE, you can text UNLOCK to 150 to check the unlock status of your phone. All Google Pixel phones unlock after 721 days (roughly two years) after being activated.
I brought an LG G6 from Cex the other week, was a C grade and was expecting the worst but was pleasantly surprised that there was no scratches on front or back and very minimal on the sides either. The only reason it got a C grade is because it has a slightly brighter patch on the screen when it's showing white but it's not really that bad unless you're looking directly at it plus when it's showing dark or any other colour apart from white it doesn't show up at all and as I prefer dark skins etc it's perfect for me and at £95 was a bargain!
Amazing deal Mrswitch! I got my Samsung galaxy s10 for £460, it's brilliant, thank you very much (y) 🏾
CEX stores are always packed with rubbish people.
