I got a Pixel 3 for my wife Mimi during November’s crazy deal and she loves the incredible camera it has. It’s truly light years ahead of all other smartphone cameras!
You must activate your Pixel 3 or 3 XL on the Google Fi account used to purchase the phone within 30 days of the shipment confirmation email. You can activate it yourself or give it to a group plan member to activate.
After activation you can switch it to any cell phone service. Mimi’s pixel works flawlessly on our Verizon plan and it should work on all carriers worldwide.
If Fi is not activated within 30 days of the phone shipment confirmation email, the discounted amount will be charged to your Google Payments account to match the full price of the phone.
- For individual plans, limit one per person. For group plans, limit one per group plan member.
- Offer is only available to U.S. residents ages 18 or older, and requires Google Payments and Google Fi accounts.
- This offer cannot be combined with other offers.
- If Google Fi determines that this offer is used in connection with abuse, misuse, or fraud, the discounted amount will be charged to your Google Payments account.
Google Fi plans:
Unlimited calls and texts are $20/month and data is $10/GB with a max charge of $60 of data. If you use 0.5GB you’ll pay $5 for data that month as all data is prorated. Additional users with unlimited calls and texts are just $15/month.
Many people use Google Fi domestically, though I’m on a grandfathered shared Verizon plan with unlimited everything for $30/month, so it’s not compelling for me to use in the USA.
However I use Google Fi extensively when traveling abroad. 4G LTE data is the same $10 per GB everywhere in over 135 countries. That’s a bargain for true high-speed data. Plus you only pay for what you use, so if you use 1.1GB you’ll pay $11, not $20. You can make phone calls for 20 cents/minute or you can make phone calls to the US/Canada over the data network with Google Voice with no charge per minute. The line itself effectively costs just 67 cents per day and you can pause your plan and number as needed and not pay a thing. I’ve used it in places from Israel to Svalbard to the UAE. You can view supported countries here.
While other carriers offer data plans that work abroad, they typically offer slow data speeds and have extremely stingy caps on how much high speed data you can use per day.
You can use your Google Fi phone as a hotspot and you can even get a free data only SIM for other devices to use at the same low rate per GB anywhere in the world.
Do you use Fi in the US or when abroad?
