Pixel from Visible .. Locked Bootloader?

VSBL-XP
Novice II

For anyone who has purchased a Pixel from Visible, is the bootloader locked? This is the case for Pixel phones purchased from Verizon, and I'm curious if the Pixel phones from Visible fall in the same boat.

 

If you don't know how to check...

First, your Pixel must be SIM unlocked.

Second, if you don't have Developer options as a selection in Settings > System, you have to un-hide it: Go to Settings > About phone > Tap Build number 9(?) times until it says you are now a developer.

Third, go to Settings > System > Developer options, and see if OEM unlocking can be turned ON. If it cannot, then the bootloader is locked.

Thanks for the reply, but the way Samsung handles bootloader locking is completely different than the Pixel, hence looking for any Visible customers who have purchased a Pixel from Visible in the last year.
