Project Fi Group Plans + Free Travel Items + $20 Credit+ Free SIM

+9 Deal Score

Didn't see a post here, but Project Fi now has group plans, saving me $15/mo

https://fi.google.com/about/plan/ Sim cards are free

If you add your family members you save $5/mo for each line automatically.

Line 1- $20
Line 2- $15
Line 3 $15

Data gets refunded at the end of the month.

New users get $20 service credit by finding a referral code. Don't think SD allows public sharing of code (Pm me?).

Worldwide 4GLTE data is great, plus the Wifi Assistant connects to starbucks and other public spaces automatically https://support.google.com/nexus/...7199?hl=en.

Sidenote: pretty much any device works if you just switch your sim card after activating.

Decided to post as they gave $20 credit to all Harvey victims.

Free travel items by using your phone at:
BUR - Terminal A, Gate A3
MDW - Terminal 1, between Gate A5 & A3
MSP - Terminal 1, Concourse G
ORD - Terminal 3, between Concourse K and H
PHL - Terminal F, right before the first gate
SEA - Concourse D, next to Gate D1
SJC - Terminal B, across from Gate 25
SMF - Terminal B, across from Gate 12
STL - Terminal 2

I have had a few PMs so here is a way to do group plans:

Sign up for each plan as individual, use the same referral code, each line will get $20 credit. Keep 30 days of service (you will pay $5 extra but net out with $15 on each line)

After 30 days just merge all into a group plan. You can do this after the fact.

Yes if you signed up within the past 30 days you can also apply a referral code by contacting their support.

Activate the sim with a compatible phone then swap it to an iPhone or something. But u stuck with tmo network vs u get to switch the stronger one between tmo or sprint network when using a Fi compatible phone.

Hopefully they've ironed out the massive kinks we experienced when this was first launched

I have used Project Fi for over a year now, and we've had zero problems with it. And we have saved a lot of money on our 3 family phone plan. We remain conservative with data usage on the network, but there's almost always WiFi available anywhere except the cars. Sure the phone choices are (intended to be) limited, but they are great phones. Awesome customer service. I'd recommend Project Fi.

Fi really isn't a good deal unless you travel overseas often. Phone selection is limited, no Volte, no unlimited, postpaid taxes, poor call and text reliability, and poor value for groups. They are so many better plans for low usage.

I just came back from a 28 day trip to Ukraine Spain France and Italy and I activated Google Fi under a new # and new email for just this trip. Used 4gb in the month and it worked flawlessly. No more having to find sim cards in the country I travel western Europe sim are about $40 a pop with data at airports usually. Everytime I landed in a new country Google would welcome me to that country and that was all i was connected. Sms international no matter to what # no matter where you are is free. Calls inside us are free if your outside us about 20 cents minute. And data is $10 a gig and that for use anywhere in the world up to 4g LTE. In western Europe I hit 4g speeds but Ukraine does not have 4g yet anywhere in that country. Just 3g and it was fast enough. For travelling it was the best, most reliable trouble free and cost effective. To use at home, in the us, there are cheaper options unless you don't use data that much.

yup, that's the key
NYC here, and wifi is almost always available, so my bill has never been more than $27/month.
