Not used to new help forum. What is difference between a Pixel 3a bought from TM, than one bought fro Google (for $100 less)?

Would I miss out on anything?

I don't think you'll miss out on anything. I wouldn't be surprised if the one bought from T-Mobile was crippled in some way. (e.g. CDMA disabled). I messaged you on HoFo.

If you're looking to save, you can check out the 2019 Spring Pixel Trade It In program we're offering. Might be worth looking into.

WOW!  The good old Howard Forums.  It's been so long!

Even with CDMA disabled, the only difference is the firmware, which can be downloaded and flashed from Google's firmware page.  Flashing the T-Mobile firmware to the stock Pixel 3a firmware will enable CDMA.
