This is something I have wanted to do for some time, but when Google Project Fi was announced the phones were, well, completely underwhelming. I finally managed to get a decent deal on the Google Pixel XL 128GB which took about 10 days of scouring ebay, Amazon and the Google store. Eventually, I found a new one (white) for about the same price as one sells for on the Google store shipped. For those who are not familiar with Google Project Fi it is a service by Google that uses Sprint and T-Mobile networks (in the US) plus Wi-Fi to deliver phone and data service. The big "gotcha" is that as of today you have the option of last year's Nexus devices or the Pixel / Pixel XL. The Pixel XL I think is usable. The service will mean that I will miss out on new phones. I have been upgrading Samsung phones annually since ditching the Blackberry and trading in the Motorola Atrix back in the day. The Atrix was ahead of its time with a fingerprint reader and a docking station. I had been with AT&T since 2005 and PacBell likely since around 2001 so this was a big move. Perhaps the biggest advantage of Project Fi is that my monthly bill will be about half of what it was on AT&T just for domestic usage. I have already done one international trip this year and have four other international trips planned over the next quarter and a half. AT&T's international voice and data pricing is extremely high after leaving the big firm umbrella (where it was included.) That meant that when traveling abroad I needed to either: pay a lot for AT&T, spend a bit more and get a local SIM, or use Wi-Fi only for days at a time. Folks like @GuybrushThreepwood who I met in Asia experienced me on a local SIM which was OK at best. I am keeping a Google Project Fi experience thread. Day 0 - Initial Setup Notes Phone unboxed to data transferred (via direct attach cable) took about 8 minutes from my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. I wish I could have kept the Samsung! The transfer seems to have missed my 128GB MicroSD card data so that will need to be loaded. It took me about 9 tries to port my number out. I confused my passcode for my password. The Project Fi application was actually great in getting this done. User error on my part. When porting my number over, the website and in-app page said 1-2 business days. In reality, it was about 30 seconds after remembering my passcode My AT&T account was closed after porting my number out Android 7 is awesome Day 0 - First Three Calls The first call was from my wife to my phone to test the number ported over. The second call was to AT&T. I thought I needed to call to cancel. The third call was for work and audio quality/ reception seems fine. I am going to update this post from time-to-time with experiences with the service.
