My Pixel 4 XL arrived yesterday – I’ll write up a review on my day off but what I thought was funny was how the Vodafone SIM I had laying around didn’t automatically configure my phone so that I could send or receive messages but when I put in my Skinny SIM (Spark’s ‘price concious’ brand) everything started working without me having to configure anything. I opened up Google messages, went to settings and enabled chat functionality (using Google’s own Jibe RCS servers since none of the carriers in New Zealand support RCS). Today I went to work – no problems, then went to the store after work to give Google Pay. Long story short – I’m a happy lad.
