Customer Question
My phone is locked...

My phone is locked up, what do I do?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model of your phone?

Google Pixel 2L

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your phone? What have you tried so far?

I don't know what to do. When I got it, all I did was swipe the lock. Now that does not work.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Phone Expert to know before I connect you?

Just get it unlocked
