Samsung Galaxy A71 5G with Google Fi for $199 for new port in customers and $299 for existing customers+FS- 90 days service required

$199.00

While checking my Fi account, noticed upgrade offer for Samsung A71 5G for $299 and for new customer with port in $199 with 90 days service.

A71 MSRP - $599

Promo details:
New customers get $400 off Samsung Galaxy A71 when you buy and activate on Google Fi. Existing customers can upgrade and receive $300 off.

Trade in will reduce this price much lower. I tried with iPhone 8 which shows estimated value as $100. For new port in, final price will be $99 with trade in iPhone8.

6.7" FHD+ Super AMOLED + Infinity Display

128GB

True. Most of the recent Fi deals are good to get the device unlocked after 90 days and you can put your primary other carrier SIM on first day and put the Fi SIM in drawer. Better not to port in your primary number since Fi customer service is always hit and miss and also high YMMV.

What I did for Pixel 4a 5G - Ported in my unused number and placed it in drawer without any data usage. Every month $20 for talk and message. Also you get $20 ref which will be good for 2nd month or 3rd month. Again $20 credit apply for 2nd or 3rd month is high YMMV nod

For those saying Fi call quality is hit or miss, are you using Fi compatible phones that switch between the three carriers? I just automatically assumed that being able to switch between three carriers would render high quality call service, but maybe not?

Would this be considered an upgrade from an S8?

Any chance you could clarify what you did exactly?

You activated the phone on Fi, pulled the SIM and stuck it in a drawer?

What then, did you remove the Fi app or factory reset the phone before you put your "normal" SIM in it?

Have you cleared the 90 days yet without a charge back?

I agree with the point that the data price isn't good, but call quality has been great for me. Both on cell and on WiFi with my 4a 5G.

The phone prices are good, but I plan to port out after I fulfill the discount obligation. US Mobile's recent sale, T-Mobile Connect, or something else low cost without extended prepaying/commitment. Don't need much data currently and like to have the freedom to move my number fwiw.

I've tried adding that A71 to my cart but it keeps showing the S20. Is anyone else having this problem?

Disregard...I found out how to edit my cart.
