Correct. What's the hassle?  Most people purchasing this phone would want to try out Project Fi anyways. Even if not, it's a great deal.

What's the deal with Project Fi.
If I want to use it as a travel phone -
Can I only activate it every time I travel?
Do I pay for the whole month or do they prorate the charge?

I was wondering the same thing. It would be great to use a  few weeks at a time internationally. I have been trying to figure out if it is possible to use as a second sim card, and turn it on and off when traveling.

I understand that if you sign up for Project Fi - you lose Google Voice. What are the downsides of losing Google Voice?
I will get the phone number I have for Google Voice that seems like a plus.
Will I be able to make calls through Hangouts?
My Obi is connected to a different email address already.
What about when I suspend my Google Fi service - will texts/voice mails still go through to that number?

Where do you see that you lose google voice? and why do yu have to use the same google account of your GV number?

You don't. I would prefer to use my GV number (it's my old cell phone number). Just wondering what the ramifications of losing Google voice are
