HSN (with new member discount code HSN2021) Has the Moto G Power smartphone, 2020 model #XT2041DL, available for $99.99 with free shipping. Includes a full year of service through Tracfone - 1,500 minutes (aka 25 hours), 1,500 texts, 1,500 megabytes (aka 1.5 Gigabytes). Locked to Tracfone for first year, easily unlockable after. First year will be CDMA mode on Tracfone, but once you unlock after year of use, you can use GSM.

I was able to get 2 discounts on 2 of these easily at same address, using my wife and my name, and different payment methods.

Phone specifications:

model # XT2041DL first released April 2020
VoLTE and wifi calling
64 GB of flash storage for apps
4 GB of system RAM
5 Amp Hour battery (aka 5,000 milliamp hour)
2.0 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 Octa Core processor
6.4" IPS LCD display, 1080x2300 resolution
Adreno 610 GPU
Android 10 (will get upgrade to Android 11)
Dolby audio
4k video, 30fps
Bluetooth 5
USB C 2.0
10 Watt charging (some users have reported even faster charging using their old
Moto X4 charger, getting a "turbopower connected" message on screen, YMMV)
fingerprint, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, FM radio
supports up to 512 MB micro SD card for storage expansion

excerpt from review: "In our battery rundown test, which streams HD video over Wi-Fi at full brightness, the phone lasted an amazing 18 hours and 11 minutes. That's a significant jump compared with the Moto G7 Power (14 hours, 29 minutes) and one of the best battery life results we've seen in some time. With conservative use, we think the Moto G Power can probably last two days between charges."

Frequency bands supported:
GSM Mhz band Quad-Band 850/900/1800/1900
Primary 2G network GSM 850/900/1800/1900
Primary 3G network UMTS 850/900/1700/1900/2100
Primary 4G network LTE Cat13 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 29, 30, 66, 71)
TD-LTE (38, 39, 40, 41)
Primary data network GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA, HSPA+, TD-LTE, LTE, LTE-A

Thank you for the information. I may try going back to Verizon network.
I would also go the Google Voice route so you can use strong wifi coverage at home, regardless of the Verizon signal strength in your neighborhood. That's assuming you do have good home wifi coverage.

I am on Verizon with no reception problems whatsoever. I almost never give out my TF number to anyone. I give out my GV number, so calls are taken over free wifi when I am home. When I am in my car or outdoors, calls go through paid Verizon via call forwarding.

It's just not that hard is it. No idea why people make this so complicated.

Quote from Quadriflax :
You need to transfer a number to get the discount, then need to remain "active" for 60 days (which may just mean pay for two months, but sometimes you actually need to be on the network). So unless you want Fi, or a spare number to port in, you're paying $200.
Please break down how you get a total of $200.

It costs you only like $2.5 to get a transfer number from Tello right now. The Moto G Power from Google Fi costs $49. Assuming you are letting the phone sits in the drawer, first month will cost you ~$25, and second month will cost you ~$5 after $20 referral (I actually forgot to include it earlier). So, total out of pocket is only $81.5 + tax even if you don't use the phone at all. Since the phone is unlocked, you can take it to any carrier you want after 2 months.

Edit: From my understanding, the only thing you cannot do is to put the Google Fi sim into another phone before fulfilling the promotion requirements. Personally, I prefer to play it safe by keeping the Google Fi sim in the phone and keep the phone on all time until the requirements are fulfilled.

If you are using the phone, then it really makes no difference between this Tracfone bundle and the getting the phone from Google Fi. The Tracfone phone is locked, so you will have to use it on Tracfone anyway. For a quick comparison, for this deal you get a Tracfone locked Moto G Power for $120 or $100 (with coupon) with 1 year of 1500 min/text/data. For Google Fi, you pay $81.50 for an unlocked Moto G Power with 4 months of Google Fi services + $5-10 extra for data (assuming you are using 250MB/mo).

It does get pretty complicated. I have this phone so I know how it works with Tracfone and VZ.

For Google Fi, you pay $81.50 for an unlocked Moto G Power with 4 months of Google Fi services + $5-10 extra for data (assuming you are using 250MB/mo).
For a limited time, get a free Moto G Power (2020) phone (as $200 off and $49 back in Fi bill credit) when you join Google Fi as a new customer or add a new group plan line. New Fi customers must bring/transfer your number to Fi from your current carrier to be eligible. Current Fi customers are eligible for $200 off.

...

If you choose to get a new number, you will not receive the promotion.



So unless you transfer your number or are an existing customer, you don't get the $200 credit. Unless I'm misunderstanding here. But how do you get a number to transfer from Tello for just $2.50? It's an option to just buy a number and then port it out immediately?

Because if what you say is true, then it sounds like you just get a number from Tello for $2.50, port that number in, start new service with Google, pay $49 for the phone, pay $30x2 for two months of service, get the $49 back in credits, and pay only $62.50 for the phone + Tello number + 2 months service? Not sure where you're getting $25/month. I'm only seeing $35/month for 3 months and $20+$10/GB plans, which makes the minimum $30/month.

If I set up a new Google account just for this, could I still use the phone with my main Google account and another SIM from somewhere else? I know you have to activate with the account on which you purchase, but I'd want to use a throwaway account and a VCC to make the purchase, then reset it and use my other account with current SIM. Not sure if they would still tie it all together with my billing/shipping address or what, though. I'd want to avoid waiting the 60 days to use it elsewhere. I dunno why they would care, once you've paid for it.

I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just not following where your numbers are coming from based on what I'm seeing (but the Tello thing was something I was unaware about).

EDIT: I think I see where you're getting $25/month. That's for three lines. Cheapest single line is $20+$10, from what I see.

There is really no reason to not to port in a number when you are buying phones from Google Fi. Even if it costs $100 to get a new number, it is still better than not getting the $200 off...

Right now, Tello is having a promotion for free sim + 50% off on plan + free shipping. If you pick 100 minutes with no data plan, it will cost you only $2.50 (and there is a 15% code if you search for it on Slickdeals). After activating the service, you can get the porting information by just logging into your account (no need to chat with reps). I cannot say for sure but you may still need a phone that will accept the Tello sim to activate the service to get a number. You can visit Tello.com to see if it works for you or not.

Also, I think you are confused on how the billing works for Google Fi. For the one person $20+$10 plan, you get unlimited talk/text and the data is prorated. The only fixed charge is the $20 for the unlimited talk/text, and you only get charged for the amount of data you used (like $0.01 for every 1 MB). For instance, if you are using only 100MB per month, you will only get charged $21. The only bad thing is that tax/911 fee/other regulatory fee are not included in the price, and that will cost you ~$5 extra per month.

To save more money, you can also search for Google Fi referral on places like Reddit. Google Fi bills you in the middle of the service cycle, and from experience, they will give you $20 referral credit at the beginning of your second month.

I cannot answer your question on whether resetting the phone and replacing the sim at the same time will create a problem. The only thing I have heard from people is that it is safe to replace the Google Fi sim with your own sim as long as you don't put the Google Fi sim into another phone. As I have mentioned earlier, I am playing it safe by keeping the phone in the drawer, leaving the Google Fi sim in the phone, and keep the phone on at all time.

Sorry, a bit off thread topic, but I wonder if the Moto One 5G Ace on Fi is better or same as Moto G Power? Have Moto G Power from Consumer cellular deal at Target deal, but it only works on GSM mvnos and I get spotty service on hello mobile.

I have this phone on Tracfone with the included Verizon SIM and I love it except that hotspot doesn't work (at least not with Tracfone Verizon SIM). The hotspot turns off automatically as soon as it's turned on

I haven't tried hotspot on this phone with a Tracfone AT&T or T-mobile SIM
