"If the phone's model or condition is different, do you accept its updated value?
If you don't accept, we can't complete the trade-in."

= entirely at their mercy with no recourse


... and if I don't activate within 30 days? Is it 30 day from the shipment date or from the date the phone is delivered and I have received it?
I can see that you have initiated a trade in request. First the trade in kit will be deactivated if you don't activate your new device.
The Pixel 4a device doesn't have any active promotion. That means your trade in kit will be deactivated and you will not get the value for your old device.
The trade in kit will be shipped separately and usually delivers after your new device delivery.
There is no estimated time for the delivery. Once it is shipped, you will get an email and can take 5-6 working days.
when does it get shipped relative to the shipment of the phone? 1-2 days or a week after?
That would be really hard to say because once the shipment is done, you will get an update via email along with the tracking details.
The order for your new device is showing as processing and the estimated time for the delivery is Dec 3, 2020.
The trade in kit is currently showing a pending status and once it is shipped, you will get an email.
We're currently experiencing high demand which is causing a delay of a few days in some of our estimated ship dates.
We're working with our shipping partners to ensure your package is shipped as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately I don't have the ability to expedite your delivery.
You can also check for the order delivery status from the Google store and we also have a team available for order management Google store.
You can cancel your order from the same link which I've shared with you.
If you want to check for the Pixel 4a devices from the Google store, I can surely connect you with the team.

Hmmm, trade in Note 9 ($450) for a Note 20 (699) = $250?
That's a good deal. Can cancel anytime. Will the Note 20 work on any network?

Seems to be $313 for a locked Cricket iPhone 7.
Can the $313 be applied to any of the phones listed on their website or just the 5G phones?

Is the hotspot tethering also unlimited? The site says the following:

Full-speed hotspot tethering
Share your data connection at no extra charge
Full-speed hotspot tethering
The Unlimited plan includes full-speed hotspot tethering at no extra charge. Turn your phone into a portable Wi-Fi hotspot and share its Internet connection with up to 10 other devices at the same time.

Yes, tethering is unlimited it just uses your data pool. Also data SIMs are free so you can use your pool from your one phone line on multiple devices for no additional charge.

Does Google Fi sell unlocked phones?
Yes. Any device you get from Google Fi comes unlocked and can be used with other wireless providers if you choose to leave our service.

This is true but after you trade in your Samsung for a Google phone, when it's time to trade in the Google phone, you'll get crumbs. The current trade in value for my Pixel 3XL is $168.00.
So while you are absolutely spot on that this isn't a deal to execute upon for long-term maintenance of residual value, there can be no doubt that this is going to increase your short-term trade-in opportunities (the S8 is about to drop off the planet as an option, whereas the 4a will likely be on lists for another year or so). Additionally, if you're actually executing this trade for your daily driver phone you're getting a pretty solid promise on updates (through 2023 for the Pixel 4a) in exchange for a phone that has migrated to quarterly updates from Samsung and is soon to see even security updates likely dry up soon.

I am preparing to migrate my S8 to a Pixel 4 from another deal, and I see this as a great opportunity to swap out my S8 for something I wouldn't mind handing off to my wife (so that I could then pass her S9 onto another family member).

Good luck!
Jon
