    I finally got the November update yesterday.

    November security update strangely delayed for many Pixel 4 owners, how to sideload https://9to5google.com/2019/11/08/pixel-4-november-update-delayed-sideload/

    Of course. Where else can you check the security level? 😎

    Is it just my Pixel 4 XL that's still running with Oct 5, 2019 security level? I haven't gotten any updates since setting up the phone.
  5. I'm in a high-rise on 7th floor of a 40 story tower. There's another tower across the street though and I think I sometimes can pick up my MB from the sidewalk.
  6. Well, I've had the magic box working for a week now using WiFi, and I can actually get some usage stats. Take a look: Sprint ought to pay me for the service I provide since there's no way me and my wife use 10 GB per week. 😎
  7. I suspect that in addition to lack of 5 GHz support, there's some other compatibility issue that's holding you up. What Wi-Fi router do you have and what encryption is it running?
  8. Do you get symmetric speeds up and down on wired?
  9. I got the Pixel 4 XL activated via eSIM and RCS took a few hours longer to activate after LTE, 1x/3G, VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling were all working. Have you tried checking again recently?
  10. Well, 2.4 GHz WiFi setting on MB gives me 39.3 Mbit down and 7.98 Mbit up. Significantly better than 1-2 Mbit I'd get with LTE backhaul. There's certainly an upper limit here around 40Mbit / 8Bit Probably related to 5:1 TDD ratio setting on MB for B41, so I'm actually unconvinced going to 5GHz will give me that much more stability given that I get 1Gbit fiber running to the router, so using about 5% of the uplink. 40Mbit is still pretty good speed for LTE, so it'll be hard for me to push that to the limit. The wildcard is how many other people in my neighborhood have phones connecting to my Magic Box. MB doesn't seem to identify itself to my router as anything, so I"ll need to chase it down via MAC address.
  11. Yes, but only on 2.4 GHz. However, I just turned off WiFi and see that my phone isn't connecting to the MB, so I'll need to see if I'm out of range or it's simply just not as stable.
  12. I just changed the Network Settings on my MB Gold to use Wi-Fi. I've got two Google WiFi, so MB was showing me 4 networks. 2.4GHz and 5GHz from each one. To simplify setup, I unplugged the more distant one. However, I'm not able to get MBG to connect to the 5GHz SSID. Only the 2.4 GHz seems to work. Is MB Limited to 2.4 GHz or could there be something about my Google WiFi that's not quite compatible?

    Ditto here. First time I've seen eSIM work! The process left some "enabling data" notification that went away after i rebooted since phone was working pretty quickly.

    What did you upgrade from?

    Take a selfie with both in a dark room so maybe with just one light on. Use non-wide camera on Pixel 3. Let me know if scene renders brighter on Pixel 3 vs Pixel 4. Don't use night mode, but you can use the max HDR setting. I take lots of selfies at dark restaurants and bars, so liked that Pixel 3 front and rear cameras had nearly identical capabilities.
