Project Fi

I got a Google Project Fi phone and sim card for testing about a month ago, with a phone I had so Google just opened it to more people. For a quick rundown it means a lower cell phone bill and more data. And it works overseas just like it works in the states at no extra charge. Verizon $10 per day charge is killing me and they limit the data you can use, it use to be whatever you had on your plan data wise you could use when traveling.

Long story short I’m going to be using the Google phone ( and number ) for the next month or so to see if the bill is lower. So if you need to contact me via text it might be delayed.

Update as of Sep 10th 2018…

Well I dropped my wife line off Verizon and got her the Moto G phone like I have and ported her number over to it . Now the real test is ou trip to Mexico. Now the only difference between the phones we have is mine was bought from Amazon hers wa bought via Google Fi . I had a small issue getting connected on the Amazon version of the phone but a reboot seem to have fixed that. For the most part the phone was working and when we got to the resort I had a connection and could share the connection. I saw a few days later my wifes phone the one bought from Google Fi had a LTE connection where mine just said “H” whatever that is.

I contacted Amazon and Motorola about this and Moto said there are just some “differances”in nphones depending on who they are being built for. Well that sucks.

Amazon was nice enough to give me refund on the phone because of what Motorola said and I ordered another one from Google.
