The ludicrous Google Pay 'death sentence' can lock your Fi account and phone number

Google has gone from a plucky search engine startup to a sprawling international corporation with its tendrils reaching into many aspects of our lives. Sometimes, that provides unique advantages. However, it can also be immensely frustrating when you run into Google's famously lacking customer support. As travel blog One Mile at a Time points out, that's a particularly big problem when it comes to Google Pay and Fi.

Now that Project Fi is called 'Google Fi' and works with all phones, the promotions are ramping up. As announced on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (of all places), new customers who sign up for Fi can get $100 in service credit. Assuming you use around 2GB of data per month, that's roughly three months of free service.

Google Fi subscribers can snag a free Google Photos photo book

A handy thing about being a giant corporation is that you're able to use one of your services to promote another. Google's been known to do this from time to time, and it's at it again: right now, Google Fi subscribers can snag a free Google Photos photo book.

Google Fi offers new customers a free month of service for bringing a number and device over

Yesterday, Google's Project Fi wireless service dropped the Project from its name. Google Fi had a banger of a deal in honor of its new nomenclature, offering up to $1,000 in travel gift cards with the purchase and activation of a new device. That offer expired earlier than expected, but there are still deals to be had. Now, if you port your number and bring your own device to the service, you get a month of service for free.

Project Fi is now Google Fi and supports phones from Samsung, OnePlus, and even iPhones

 

Project Fi has made the leap that all fledgling Google projects aspire to - after around three-and-a-half years, it has dropped the "project" and evolved into "Google Fi," with a brand new logo to boot. Along with the name change, Google has announced that the wireless provider now supports "the majority of Android devices," including Samsung and OnePlus handsets, and iPhones (in beta).

Get a combined $400 off a Pixel 3 or 3 XL via Project Fi, plus discounts on other phones

Google has dropped the price on its latest pair of flagships via the Google Store between $150-200, but Project Fi is set to one-up that offer. From now until next Tuesday (11/27) you can get a cumulative $400 off either the Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL — $200 in an up-front discount, and $200 in the form of bill credits.

Don't like bill credits? You can also get an up-front $400 off the LG V35 ThinQ or G7 ThinQ with activation. Love bill credits? You can get $350 towards service if you get the older Pixel 2 XL. And if you just want something cheap, the Moto G6 and Moto X4 are $150-250 off (with activation).

Buy one Pixel 3 or 3 XL, get another free-ish (via $799 service credit) on Project Fi

The latest Pixel phones are a little too spendy for some, but Google's Project Fi service has a deal that might make them more palatable. If you purchase two 2018 Pixels on a group plan, you can get a $799 service credit. That's sort of a "buy one, get one" deal as the base model Pixel 3 costs $799. You do still have to buy the phones, though.

[Update: APK Download] Project Fi is about to make switching from Wi-Fi to mobile data painless, adding always-on VPN

Google's long-term plans for its MVNO carrier, Project Fi, remain uncertain. But for the time being, the carrier is continuing to roll out new software features. No, Fi isn't getting RCS support — but it is starting to test an always-on VPN service and improved network switching.
