Q: Does the port credit stack with the trade-in credit?

Nop..Google voice porting is not eligible for $500 off pormo.
11-23-2020 at 11:23 PM
Yes, google voice number porting works for me on the Pixel 4a 5G deal. Google Fi saving progress page shows I have successfully port in a number and I just need to stay in service for another 88 days to qualify the $200 off for Pixel 4a.
11-23-2020 at 11:59 PM
Yes, since it's showing up for Gogodeep on the Promotion Progress page, it'll work.
11-29-2020 at 02:20 AM
Can confirm it worked for me for this promo
12-01-2020 at 10:34 AM
Yes, confirmed with Google CC over chat.

Yes they are the unlocked versions. Your trade in credit will be applied to the method of payment used if you paid for the phone in full upfront or your Fi account if you financed the phone.
11-24-2020 at 12:03 AM
$500 is the discount you get right away. It's the device trade-in credit that you'd get as a return on your credit card (or Fi credits, if you used financing to pay for the phone).

You can insert another carrier's SIM after activation, but your Google Fi service should be active for at least 90 days, as in, you simply need to pay for at least 90 days of service. It doesn't matter if you don't use the Fi service after activating the phone, i.e. don't make calls or don't use data after activating the phone.

While I've used similar deals 4 times, one intuitive reason why doing so would work is that if one is in or moves to an area with poor T-Mobile, Sprint & US Cellular connectivity, it would be unfair to customers if Google Fi would require them to keep the SIM inserted for 90 days, as in the case of a remote area with no connectivity, Google Fi won't be able to tell if a customer indeed did that, which is why it doesn't impose that restriction, although it could've deployed a solution to do that.

Yes as long as it is not blacklisted. You are also given the option to choose your carrier for the device you are trading in.

Quote from vgtest1980 :
What?? Is it still showing the higher trade in values?? I thought that ended yesterday
I got quoted $350 for my S8. Considering I bought the S8 for $400 (2 for $400 w/ trade in of the S7E), this is an amazing deal.

Seems to be roughly $575 with tax and the 3 months of Google Fi for the N20U. Not bad considering it's normally going for $1050 right now during the holidays sales at BB, Microsoft, & Samsung.

Quote from SDJunkie76 :
Does a Google Voice number work?
Quote from mukundcs :
Likely not; when you sign up for fi, the google voice number associated with the google account would typically become the fi number.
See other thread - the consensus from customer support is that Google Voice numbers DO NOT count as porting a number in. Use H20 or number barn to be sure.

These Google Fi deals are usually the best ones to get some decent deals on phones. I did one of them last year to get a Motorola G7 for $99.99 as backup phone. As long as you fulfill the terms of the deal, you can move the phone to a different service afterwards.

This deal involves a few more hoops to jump through compared to the one I did last year for the Motorola G7 though I guess that's understandable since this is a flagship phone compared to the budget one I bought.

This is a no brainer deal best deal of the year on a smartphone released 5 months ago
3 months i think.

999 at launch. 499 for n20 is awesome since you can trade in towards n21 or s21 for at least 650, netting money

Don't forget about the $20 referral code for new customers. Can cover the cost of 30 days if you don't use any data.

Does someone know if we can trade in an S20 that is still under contract from Sprint? Assume I keep the line open.

Yep. Just switched. Cell service wasn't that good.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, I've used the same service and have had the same number for many years, if I port this number over to Google Fi, then after 90 days decide I want to go back to my old service, will I be able to port the number back to a different carrier or do I lose it?

Use your PayPal with chase for another 5% or $26 off

It's about +550 for phone with tax
+80 for 3 months of services
+3 for porting GV
-20 referral
-26 PayPal
Total of 587

If you buy and trade in any iPhone 6s or s7 for 80, you get about 270 off which nets you a positive of 190


This snapdragon 865+ phone will be about 397.

Well, technically you can - but I wouldn't advise it. Basically, to get the deal price, you need to activate within 30 days, port an existing number in, and keep active for 90 days (I think those are the basic terms). If any of those things do not happen, then you will be charged the extra $500 I believe. Personally, I wouldn't risk MY $500 by counting on somebody else doing ALL of those properly ....

You can port it back.

I'm not entirely sure though I would just activate the fi sim on the note 20 first then put it in a different phone. If this Google Fi Samsung Note 20 is like the other phone I got from the service before, it already comes unlocked so you can already jam another SIM card into it.
