Sadly a very common Pixel XL issue, bad solder joint on the mic. Return for a replacement.

Yea, I'm keeping my Nexus 6 close at hand in case something happens with my Pixel.

 

Because the repair time will be painful I'm sure. Touch wood I don't need it, and here's hoping yours is repaired/replaced quickly.

Yea i hope so too.

 

Plus i did not get a courtesy phone coz i did not had pbtech care or something..

 

But i have my old samsung , which uses bigger sim, so i will have to buy bigger one for now, and when my pixel returns, i will have to get mini sim again...

 

Cant we have both sim at a time so something (but only 1 in use) ?

You can't have 2 SIMs, no.

 

Just buy a SIM Adapter Kit, don't piss around getting different SIMs.

Don't expect fast turnarounds or stellar customer care when dealing with PBTech. They're usually the cheapest for a reason.

Why are you asking us? We're not PBTech :-)

Yes, you've got a substantial failure on the product, and have provided the store an opportunity to remedy it, which they failed.

 

You now have recourse for either a replacement, or a refund.

 

If they deny (and I've heard PBtech can be difficult) then you have several options - CAB,and MBIE.

Hey mate,

 

Drop a line through to the team at customer.service@pbtech.co.nz with the details - they're across this thread and keeping an eye out for your email. They'll sort you out.
