The looming merger between T-Mobile and Sprint is threatening to substantially change the balance of power between carriers here in the US, potentially making The Big Four into The Bigger Three.

Google Fi's customer service is a complete disaster - and the proof is piling up

Google Fi's customer service problems are numerous and well-documented. The carrier has been accused of billing customers for using Wi-Fi, blacklisting IMEIs, locking customers out of their Google accounts, and charging them the full price after promotions (causing plenty of overdraft fees in the process). At this point, Fi is more associated with bottom-barrel customer service than the aggressive, on-demand pricing it was once known for.

But you can still get it on the Google Play Store and install it to your Android device. It’s right there.
