Need a temporary phone

My pixel 4xl has some power issues.  stuck on 50%, and won't last but a few mins before shutting off.   Warranty ran out in October.  Insurance will cost $250 deductible, but google says send it to them and they'll fix it, seemingly for free.  Thing is, I can't go without a phone.  Can I buy an att prepaid or something to use temporarily?  Any help or suggestions appreciated.

Yes you can buy a cheap prepaid. Swap your sim into the swap it back when your phone is fixed

@bradgalloway The Pixel 4 XL has a 1-year extension of its warranty for certain specified power related issues:

Google hid it pretty good.  They were tryin to avoid a nexus 5 and nexus 6p repeat.

@lizdance40   It's not broadly known, but it's there in the list of options for anyone checking for device warranty information:
