It's easy to switch to Pixel.
Insert your SIM.
Requirements: Both phones, SIM card tool from box tool.
Open your old phone’s SIM tray and remove your current SIM card. With the tool provided, open the SIM tray located on the side or bottom of the phone. Insert the SIM card to your Pixel. After your SIM card is activated, you can now turn on your Pixel.
Connect to Wi-Fi and sign in with your Google Account.
Requirements: Wi-Fi connection, both phones, Quick Switch Adapter and, if applicable, your old phone cable.
Once you have the SIM in place and you’ve turned on your Pixel, join a Wi-Fi network. Then, plug in your old phone to your new Pixel, using the Quick Switch Adapter if needed. Unlock your old phone and confirm its ok to connect. Lastly, sign in to your Google Account with your new Pixel. You can still use your old phone during this process.
