    Something I've been seeing about the source code in Android Q is, carriers can list allowed and blocked carriers. A phone could accept a SIM card from the primary carrier while blocking MVNOs that run on the same towers. This would be allowed on both single and dual SIM card phones.

    Would this be only on carrier branded models? IOW, would a Verizon Pixel have these restrictions, while an unlocked Pixel from Google would not?
