I'd like to upgrade my phone to a refurbished Google Pixel 4A but can't tell if this is doable. I'm an existing T-Mobile customer and would like to keep my number. The automated chat is not helpful. Thanks in advance.

Is it a carrier branded Pixel and do you have the specs? It should work as long as it's unlocked but knowing the specs of the phone will help.

The Pixel 4a should work just fine. Like any other BYOD you may have to set the APNs. Other than that, you should just move your Nano SIM from your old phone and do a setup like any other Android device.

Thats not always true.. he should also ensure the phone is compatible with tmo network.. for example if its a sprint model it might not matter if its unlocked unless the device has capabilities to connect to all type networks.
