[Deal Alert] Project Fi offering LG G7 for $549, V35 for $699 ($200 off), with free $150 service credit

LG phones probably haven't been getting much love on Project Fi, especially with the introductions of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, so the Google MVNO has decided to spice things up a bit. Both LG flagships are now being offered for $200 off, bringing the G7 down to $549 and the V35 to $699, with $150 free Fi service credit to sweeten the deal. This beats last month's deal out by $50.

Project Fi shutting down text forwarding on September 12

A sad bit news hit Project Fi users' emails today. Google's MVNO service is shutting down text forwarding on September 12. While I'm sure not everyone on the carrier uses this feature, I personally have relied on it since joining Fi.

Moto G6 on Project Fi now available in 'blush' color

The Moto G6 went up for pre-order on Project Fi about two months ago, and though we never covered its formal release, it officially went up for sale a month after that. Project Fi now sells the G6 in the 'blush' color, which I'm surprised Motorola didn't call 'rose gold.'

[Deal Alert] Project Fi offering $300 service credit with purchase of LG G7 ThinQ or V35 ThinQ

Project Fi only recently let non-Google phones join the party. Today, Fi has announced that two of those phones now come with a pretty enticing incentive. Purchasing either the LG G7 ThinQ or the V35 ThinQ from the carrier will net you $300 in service credit. Depending on how much data you use each month, that could go a long way.

Why doesn't Project Fi support RCS yet, Google?

Back in April, Google announced that it was pausing work on its Allo chat client to focus more on its RCS-enabled texting app, Android Messages. News of an upcoming web client for Messages was released alongside the announcement (something we’d known about for months), making it seem like Google was all-in on its SMS and RCS platform going forward. Now, that web client has arrived, and RCS continues its rollout around the world. The one, slight wrinkle? Google’s branded carrier, Project Fi, doesn’t even support RCS. And there’s still no timeline as to when it will.

RCS (Rich Communication Services) has been hailed as the ‘iMessage for Android,’ meant to finally bridge the feature gap between Apple’s closed communication platform and the ancient SMS standard.
