Is the pixel sim locked? Also, would update be straight from google? I have searched for answers from the forum and it seems that it would be sim unlocked and updates would be straight from google. However, answers were from a month ago. I have called in to ask, and they said it would be sim locked. I just want to make sure its unlocked as if i buy it straight from google. Thanks.

The pixel, like the nexus before it, will be sold unlocked.

Does this mean I can replace the Sim card when I travel?

I was at a store today and they said it was going to be locked for a short time and I could get a package with them. I was very confused because I thought all pixels phones are unlocked.

I just want to make sure because I was planning on getting it, and I am traveling next week.
