    That's what I meant. The Google Pixel 3 is a dual sim phone but one of the sims is an eSIM rather than a physical SIM that you put in. Sprint likely would have programmed the onboard eSIM with your account.

    Previously only one could be activated, but looks like you might be able to activate both now, but only one can be in use.

    My bad, sorry. Thanks for the explanation.

    Just pulled all the data off my old S7, figured I can play forensics with the info later. Right now I'm having fun with my new phone setting it up and getting it all snug in her spiffy new over-protective case. :)

    What is special about Android? That you cannot uninstall all the unnecessary bloat from Google? I have used cyanogen and basic android and honestly given how big a company Google is I don't find it impressive. At least you should be able to root the phone and get a little control over the way it works. I despise the way the phone ecosystem has developed .

    Yep vanilla android is worse than cyanogenmod (now lineage os).

    The apps directly from Google itself are awesome tho.

    Currently the one most awesome and useful daily is Google camera. It's "night sight" is crazy good

    What's a good voice mail app? It keeps trying to make me use the old sprint one which I HATE! (It had ads, ads in a basic app?!?)

    I dunno sorry. I just use the LG one for that. I do agree about camera app orange, but I don't particularly like the Gmail app or many of their other apps. The camera software is different in that it is software wizardry making photos better. That is a backend issue not a user facing design issue. I think a lot of camera apps are as intuitive and user-friendly they just don't produce the same quality.

    Best part of this new Pixel is whenever I restart it I see the sweet Google logo start up with absolutely no mention of Sprint anywhere! :D

    Stupid, but it makes me smile.
