I’m immediately skeptical that this will be a good idea. Keeping the devices and software maintained and up to date is no small feat, and a startup might not have what it takes.

I believe it’s a better idea to grab a Google Pixel and install graphene OS on it.


As @Arken said with stuff like security and privacy is best to stick to well maintained proven solutions. Also, always remember that there is no privacy without security. And frequent security updates is the most important thing to make sure your device is secure. Sadly the vast majority of projects fall short on that.


yeh i have pixel 7 pro no has been able to identy the carrier and if oem unlockable if can help pm i want know if unlockable or not

I’m just copy pasting from the official GrapheneOS docs,

Enable the developer options menu by going to Settings ➔ About phone and repeatedly pressing the build number menu entry until developer mode is enabled.

Next, go to Settings ➔ System ➔ Developer options and toggle on the ‘OEM unlocking’ setting. On device model variants (SKUs) which support being sold as locked devices by carriers, enabling ‘OEM unlocking’ requires internet access so that the stock OS can check if the device was sold as locked by a carrier.

If you are unable to do that then it means your phone is carrier locked which means you’re most likely out of luck.

got it so seller lied said it was carrier unlocked trying waste return time by saying givie week connected to internet

Yes, that is correct. If they said the phone was unlocked then they straight out lied.

You should never take a seller’s word at face value unless they have a policy that clearly indicates returns are accepted during a grace period, regardless of the reason.

Plus, there are certain ways to check if a phone is carrier unlocked or not. The presence of any carrier specific bloatware is an indication (sometimes) that the phone is locked. Then you have regional or county wide regulations, for example in Canada all phones sold from 2018 on have to be carrier unlocked by law.
