Just a couple of hours ago, T-Mobile CEO John Legere tweeted a photo of the Google Pixel with a hint: it works great on our network.
Now, the hint doesnt really reveal much, only that John Legere enjoyed using the Google Pixel. Could it be that the Pixel will come to T-Mobile? Thats not likely, after all, the Google Pixel is to remain exclusive to Verizon among the US carriers to carry and sell it in stores.

Well, what else could Legere be planning with the Google Pixel? Surely many customers have been itching to get the Google Pixel, including those who had to return their Galaxy Note7s twice.
T-Mobile likes to pull some stunts that are really out there, and that really help the customer, while also convincing more people to switch to the Un-carrier. What I am really hoping is that T-Mobile will start a program to finance a non-network phones on your own service line instead of buying it outright.
This would make it so much easier for T-Mobile customers to buy the Pixel and remove a major pain point. Seeing as many US wireless customers would not even dream of spending upwards of $800 outright for a smartphone, it would work for T-Mobile if it could somehow figure out how to make it easier for customers to get the phone they want, even if it was from a third party, without stepping on Verizons toes.
A T-Mobile rep says T-Mobile will not be selling it directly.
@Waut_MOM @JohnLegere We won’t be selling it directly but you can get it from Google and bring it to the magenta network *TylerDevenere
