Google Fi brings cheap wireless service to most iPhones and Android phones

Google’s Renowned Project Fi Wireless Service Is Finally Coming to iPhone

Google's Project Fi wireless service first launched back in 2015, offering people in certain regions of the United States a new and unconventional alternative to traditional cellular service. These phones (Pixel 3, 3XL, 2, 2XL, LG G7, LG V35, Moto G6, and Moto X4), can seamlessly switch between Wi-Fi, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Sprint towers to achieve well-rounded coverage. Google also announced that Google Fi now supports many more smartphones, including those from Samsung, LG, Motorola, OnePlus, and Apple.

That said, Google mentions in the announcement post that "a few extra steps" are required to get set up on with Fi on an iPhone, but there's a companion app to help with that. With official support for more devices, the net widens for everyone.

If you buy the 128GB Pixel 3 XL, you can mix-and-match individual gift cards for services like Delta Airlines, Airbnb, Southwest Airlines, and Hotels.com, equal to $999. On Tuesday, however, Google announced a number of new phones that are compatible with Project Fi. "These phones include special hardware and software to move effortlessly between Google Fi's networks and provide you with even more security and reliability through Fi's new enhanced network feature".

Nooses found outside MS legislature day before Senate vote
Smith faces a run-off election against Democrat Mike Espy on Tuesday after failing to gain 50 percent of the vote on November 6. Tate Reeves, who has an office in the Capitol, called the nooses and signs "reprehensible".

With today's announcement, however, none of the aforementioned issues should crop up anymore. What that means is other devices will not be able to flick between Spring and T-Mobile, something that Google Fi is well known for. It also offers several features like worldwide data coverage in 170 countries and territories, spam protection, and data-only SIMs for other devices. And if you bring over your own device, you can get up to $200 in Fi service credit.

What's missing when you use an iPhone or non-Fi-certified handset, of course, is Fi's unique network switching. For any phone purchased through the Fi website, Google says you'll get "the same value back in your choice of travel gift cards, which you can spend on flights with Delta and Southwest or lodging with Airbnb and hotels.com" (because Fi has great worldwide support, get it?).

Fi plans in the U.S. offer unlimited domestic call and texts, plus texting internationally, for $20 monthly.
