Google Fi phone service now works on iPhones, Galaxy and OnePlus phones

Google Fi phone service now works on iPhones, Galaxy and OnePlus phones

To prove its serious about this network enterprise, Project Fi is also getting a new, more official name: Google Fi.

Google Fi's Network Tools feature will not work on iPhones. And visual voicemail won't work; instead, Google will send you a transcript of each voicemail via text messaging. Thus, customers essentially can pay $80 for unlimited data service (users' connection speeds are slowed if they consume more than 15 GB in a month, though Google notes that less than 1% of its users typically consume more than 15 GB in a month). So if you use 2GB of data, your phone bill will be $40. In the rare instance that someone uses more than 15GB in a single billing period, remaining cellular data may be throttled but is still free.

Since 2015, Google (GOOG, GOOGL) has offered cell service with a service called Project Fi. Google also announced that Google Fi now supports many more smartphones, including those from Samsung, LG, Motorola, OnePlus, and Apple.

Among the current field of Project Fi devices - those which Google has personally deemed "Fi- Ready" - include its own Pixel 3, 3 XL, 2 and 2 XL flagships, LG's G7 and V35, and Motorola's G6 and X4 (Android One edition) which are now for sale directly via Google's Project Fi store. Since its inception, Fi has only been compatible with specific phones, all of which ran Android. Want a phone that can make full use of seamless switching from one wireless network to another?

Google has had its own MVNO wireless service option for quite awhile now, but its selection of devices has been pretty limited. Then you'll need a phone that's officially created to support Fi. These phones (Pixel 3, 3XL, 2, 2XL, LG G7, LG V35, Moto G6, and Moto X4), can seamlessly switch between Wi-Fi, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Sprint towers to achieve well-rounded coverage.

In the three years since its launch, Google's Project Fi has one of the most reasonable phone plans out there, but it's been tough to recommend because the service is compatible with so few phones.

If you buy the 128GB Pixel 3 XL, you can mix-and-match individual gift cards for services like Delta Airlines, Airbnb, Southwest Airlines, and Hotels.com, equal to $999.
