Carrier Setup notification

My Google Pixel just started giving me a Notification called Carrier Setup

The message is

Get Verizon service

You don't have a Verizon Wireless plan

I logged into my Verizon account and it states my plan is active. My next billing cycle is not for another 30 days. I cannot open the notification or remove it. My Phone works fine for both Data and Voice and i and showing it works fine on LTE. I have a valid Verizon plan. Not sure what this is.

Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention, rhaslitt. 

Have you been able to remove the notification since you posted this message? 

 

Do you recall if any changes were recently made to the device  before this message started? Just to be clear, are you traveling abroad or are you still in the USA?

rhaslitt, we want to ensure you can remove that notification pop-up as needed. I welcome the opportunity to address your inquiry. You may be seeing that message if you have an unlocked Google Pixel device. It may also appear if you recently performed a software update or factory data reset. To stop the notification, simply press and hold it down when expanding your notifications list. You should be presented with the option to block it. I hope this information helps.

I just tried this and it says that these notifications can't be blocked. I do have an unlocked Pixel, but didn't reset recently and the most recent software update was at least a week ago. I did run out of data yesterday, but my plan renewed at the end of the day.

Actually, the notification went away all on its own.
