Google’s Project Fi – The best switch over I made from Verizon

To make a long story short, Verizon was costing way too much, and I came across Google’s Project Fi and thought that I would take a shot and give it a try.  My only problem was that I liked my iPhone, and Project Fi did not support that, but I still figured I would give it a try.  After over a year of being on this plan, it has saved me money, and I went from paying around $150.00 a month for Verizon, to barley breaking $40.00 a month! My current phone is the Nexus 6P, which is an Android phone.

Services are $20.00 per month for unlimited talk and text in USA and some extra charges in over 135 countries.  For data, it is only $10.00 per GB of data that can be used in over 135 countries.  No extra charges when you are traveling abroad (besides for calls).

You also get what you pay for: for example, if you pay $50 for the month ($20 for talk/text and $30 for 3 GB of internet) but only use 2.2 GB of internet, the other $8 will be added to your next bill.  In the end you do not lose what you pay for, unlike those other companies. 

I highly recommend this phone plan if you are looking to save money without Contracts!

Here is some information about Google’s Project Fi that is useful in my opinion to learn about the service:

Project Fi is a mobile virtual network operator by Google, providing phone, messaging and data services using both Wi-Fi and cellular networks belonging to Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Three.

Project Fi automatically switches between networks depending on signal strength and speed. It automatically connects to Wi-Fi hotspots with data encryption through an automatic VPN. Phone calls seamlessly transition between Wi-Fi and cellular networks. With all networks combined, Project Fi covers more than 135+ places around the world.

Plans are based on a flat rate, in which a subscription costs $20 per month for unlimited calls and messaging. Money for unused data is credited back to the user’s account, while overuse of data costs $10 per gigabyte. A Group Plan, which lets users add members to their subscription, costs an additional $15 per user per month, and offers features including data overview, data notifications, monthly allowances, and the ability to pause users’ data usages. A data-only SIM card can be used on supported tablets.

What phones can be used for this plan?

  • Nexus 5X

All these phones can be set up for monthly charges if you do not want to pay for them all at once.

Plans and a Group Plan:

Monthly plans are flat fee-based,paid at the beginning of each monthly billing cycle. It starts at $20 per month for unlimited calls and messaging. Money for unused data is credited back to the user’s account, while overuse of data results in a charge of $10 per gigabyte.While outside the United States, cellular phone calls cost $0.20 per minute, data costs $10 per gigabyte, while texting is free.A data-only SIM card can be used on tablets and other compatible devices, including the 2013 Nexus 7, Nexus 9, and iPad Air 2. The devices must be compatible with the T-Mobile network, and users can add up to 9 data-only SIM cards in one account.

A Group Plan, which allows users, referred to as “managers”, to add other people, referred to as “members”, to their subscription, costs an additional $15 per user. Group Plans let managers view data usage by member, set data notifications, add monthly allowances, and pause members’ data usage. In June 2017, Group Plans were updated to feature “Group Repay”, in which Project Fi automatically calculates each of the members’ individual shares of the bill and allows for easy payments. Such payments can be a fixed amount, an individual’s total usage, or only for data usage above the standard data allotment.
