    Maybe so. I was under the impression that I just put it near the card reader and boom it works.
    Need to make sure NFC is on and near the reader. Different companies make different NFC readers. Samsung uses two methods and can pretty be able to pay at any reader even without NFC.

    So I think I want the Pixel 2 but for the laziest reasons. I'll like to try it (obviously) but also it would be a way to get rid of my original Pixel since there are so many selling elsewhere. I would do the trade-in, wait for it to process and complete and then request a return. I looked into it and you can apparently do that.

    It would be a way to knock out the 2 things in one. Is it sad that the knocking out of two things is a stronger motivator over actually trying it? I'll think on this.
    Ha, ha.
    Well if this helps you get your cash out, then why not? Just double check that the value equal to your trade in doesn't come in as store credit when you return the device.

    You know how I can be, lol.
    I have seen on Reddit that both a refund for the difference was credited back to the credit card and I have also seen store credit too. I have to dig more but yeah, the amount they are being sold for on Swappa is like from $275 up. It might be worth a shot if I could have a higher credit returned...

    Seems like you sold yours at the right time.

    I did and was able to upgrade to the newer model for $15 or so. Even though the storage is down to 64GB but that doesn't bother me.

    Wow for $15 more is awesome!

    So I decided to pull the trigger...
    Apparently, also there's this additional $100 credit that ends tomorrow night for buying a Pixel 2/2 XL. That window is gone of course when I return lol.

    NFC on...
    Position of NFC sensor...
    Ensure your card is fully set up for use...

    If any of these are not done it didn't work.

    I do like the AR stickers mode in my Pixel 2 now that Visual Core is up and running.

    I turned on nfc, I set up my card but what wasn't clear on the card reader was where id put my phone.

    You have to do what works for you. There will be other things. Hopefully you get a chance to catch your breath.

    Even though I'm 28, I still enjoy watching Santa sit on the fire truck and ride with the fire department through the neighborhood. I know he's not real but something about it is nice to me.

    I'm liking the V30 quite a bit.
    Also I was able to unlock my device without any issues.
    Thinking of using this with my Mint SIM.

    My Pixel 2 has already shipped (estimated arrival is Tuesday) and the trade in kit hasn't yet. It's looking like I would get the phone before the kit, which puts a wrinkle in my idealistic plans.

    Seems like a lot has changed in 2 months. The first time around, the kit shipped first. I'll see how this goes (especially since you only have 15 days to return) and decide on a plan of action.

    That was a fast unlock! Sounds like it's been worth it to try it out.

    I somehow missed this article by Jason Ward on Windows Central:

    Windows phone refugees might not find asylum on Android

    Kind of interesting.

    Haha, I can understand that. A lot of his editorials are very similar but this one is different about the weaknesses of Android so I decided to read it.

    I already tested it out with the other SIM card. I am debating whether to put the Mint SIM in the Essential or the V30. Can't abandon the main line on the Pixel 2 with TMO.

    Same here.
    I like to be an optimist most of the time.
    But this guy's WP optimism is off the charts and begins to kinda rub like coarse sandpaper.

    I miss that DAC on the V20. I'll wait quietly for the V30 to get cheaper next year.

    That's a fair point but the additional secret tracking in popular apps is something I haven't heard before and that was really interesting to me, but also a bit disturbing.

    I'm eating my words because now the trade in kit has also shipped.
