P.S. To help make saying “Hi” to Project Fi a little easier, we’ll be offering the Nexus 5X starting at $199 for the next month when you buy and activate through Project Fi.

16gb is $199

32gb is $249

add the cost of Project Fi basic + $30. (Don't see anything in the terms about cancelling after a month)

existing fi users
I just talked to a Project Fi rep. If one is a current Project Fi user, they can go to their account page, and click on 'your plan.' On that screen, to the right, is a Plus Sign with Buy New Device. Selecting that, does allow a current member to buy at the discounted price. Of course, the same rule applies regarding activation.



Offer has been extended until June 9 July 10 August 11th September 11th, 2016 (or while supplies last): https://fi.google.com/about/faq/#...-devices-3

Nexus 5X: Be sure to apply the March 2016 OTA to ensure you have the most stable experience [reddit.com]. Factory images here [google.com].

I've used Google Fi on the Nexus 6 for several months, here is my impression.
WiFi calling is a lifesaver when no Sprint or Tmobile signal is present, but a local business provides free WiFi.
The ability to install 'Google Hangouts' and 'Hangouts Dialer' onto any other device (iPhone 5 on R+, F3 on FreedomPop, Windows Tablet on WiFi) allows you to send & receive calls and texts using your Google Fi number, similar to iMessages, but without restrictions.
Hangouts delivers text messages without delay to all devices and 'Hangouts Dialer' connects voice calls using your Google Fi number to individuals who cannot tell the call is VoIP.

It is by far the best option for globetrotters. Free data roaming in 120 countries and very reasonable roaming voice call rates.



It is Sprint and T-Mobile. The coverage has improved considerably with the addition of band 12, so you should check again. This phone has band 12, which is considered a wide area channel.

If I weren't on T-Mobile, I likely would get Project Fi. I also get free data in over 140 countries [t-mobile.com] - I have used it in Sweden and Japan recently - and I'm getting special discounts, so T-Mobile is cheaper for me overall.

a couple thoughts from a fi user going back to Oct 2015.


*unused data gets you a credit applied to the following months invoice

*you can pause your service for a period and you don't incur usage charges (but your cellular features are suspended)

*international speeds are limited. I used my N6 in England, Netherlands, Austria and Czech Rep. would have preferred faster speeds, but cant complain. you don't go abroad to use their internet. wifi calling rates vary by country and where your calling to, but data rates are the same no matter where. I'm on mobile, otherwise I would like their Microsite for project fi
international rates.

*app and support are both very helpful

*the welcome packet I received (not sure if they still do it) is def worth North of $20. earbuds, phone case, and a ~10k mah power bank.

any other questions just ask.

I just came across this, if you purchase Nexus 5X with Project Fi activation you can get it for $199 + $30 activation / first month fees. It does not say you need to continue to use project fi service for specific amount of time, all it needs is activation.

FYI, no invites needed for Project Fi

Not a bad deal !

Thank you for sharing. I only know one person who has Project Fi, but he's very happy with it.

Important information:
  • Activation is required. If you purchase a Nexus 5X from fi.google.com, the discounted price will automatically apply during checkout. You must then activate Fi service on the same account within 30 days of device shipment, or an additional $150 will be charged to your Google Payments account to match the full price of the device.
  • This offer is valid from March 7, 2016, to April 7, 2016, while supplies last.
  • There is a limit of 1 discounted Nexus 5X per customer.
  • As far as I can tell, you can cancel the service after one month's usage and fee of $30, which means the 16GB phone can be had for $229.
I hope this helps,
Tofu Vic

What networks does Fi use? According to Google the entire Denver Metro area is 4g LTE, but I know for a fact that several places near my house has no service with Verizon and Tmobile.

If I remember correctly, Fi uses Sprint and T-Mobile, switching off whenever there's a better signal or something.

Good to know. Unfortunately, I am not traveling enough lately to make it worthwhile.

how is the nexus 5x being received?

My parents have a HTC One M7 and Galaxy S4 on ATT and we are about to switch to Tmobile. Would like to get them band 12 phones that are faster and have better battery than their current phones.

So if I were to get the 16gb, it would be $200 + $30 for 1 month of service?
