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

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

That includes phones sold through the Fi website (including all the devices that were previously the only support phones, including the Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 families, the Moto X4 and Moto G6, and the LG G7 ThinQ and LG V35 ThinQ). You won't be able to use Google Fi's VPN, for example.

Freshly renamed "Google Fi" service aims to take on traditional carriers by letting people pay based on how much data they use and roam internationally. And to help celebrate the changes, Google is offering up different promotional offers, the best of which is up to $999 in travel gift cards.

Google changed the name of its MVNO service from Project Fi to Google Fi and added a new bring-your-own-device option that will allow the service to work on most Android phones and iPhones.

That's certainly a vague statement, making it even more unclear what Google actually has in store for those wanting to give Project-Fi a test-drive - but we can expect to know more once the search-giant makes its official announcement in the coming days. Data costs $10 per each GB that you use, but once you hit 6GB (or more if you're on a family plan), Bill Protection kicks in and you aren't charged for additional data use until your next bill.

That's good news if you want an easy-to-understand phone plan in the US and have strong T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular signal in the areas you frequent. Google's Project Fi is now officially known as Google Fi, and the MVNO now supports a host of new devices from manufacturers like Samsung and OnePlus.

ICC Women’s WT20: Mithali Raj’s manager lashes out at skipper Harmanpreet Kaur
The Indian women got off to a good start but being a top-heavy side and thin thereafter saw them crumble from 89/3 to 112/10. According to an ICC press release, the decision has the backing of every nation's men's and women's team captains.

You can check to see whether your phone is compatible and which Fi features it supports here. It also offers several features like global data coverage in 170 countries and territories, spam protection, and data-only SIMs for other devices. You will also receive voicemails as texts and have them transcribed.

Finally, Google is giving away some goodies to anyone who buys a phone from Fi (with service).

What's missing when you use an iPhone or non-Fi-certified handset, of course, is Fi's unique network switching.

When it comes to iPhones, iMessage works just fine but you will have to update your iPhone's MMS settings to send and receive texts with non-iPhones.
