On the line with them now and told that the promotion in fact ended at 10:00 pm eastern/7:00 Pacific and therefore my 10:04 pm eastern order is ineligible for the gift cards.
Oy. Will they at least let you return the phone?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

After 2.5 hours on hold and finally speaking to a "supervisor", I was informed that Google had to respect its policy of "consistency" to anyone that purchased after 7:00 pm pacific time and could only offer me a $100 service credit or let me return the phone with a pre-paid shipping label. I'll be returning it. What a waste of time and poor and misleading customer service.

Does joining up for a family plan disqualify me for the $20 referral credit and or the travel gift card promo?

Yes and the person who's code I used received same email.
Interesting, I gave out my code to a bunch of people and didn't get any emails about them activating it.

Have no need for the phone, and want to sell it (I guess after the 4 months) Can I activate it without opening the box? so that I can sell it as new in box?

How would you do this if you are porting in your number (which is only way to be eligible for promo)?

Perhaps there's a thread for this...

Is the service any good? How about data? unlimited data and voice for $80, tethering and all, seems like a pretty good deal at face value.

Did anyone get through to Fi and find out if we could keep Fi active with the eSim but put in a SIM from T-Mobile without forfeiting the travel credit?

I asked them today about, they told me when you switch it looks to them like you paused/deactivated, they recommend against it in the first few months..

And here's a consisting answer, I'm waiting a few days already for an answer to email.

I emailed them this question and was told no. I'll probably do it, but YMMV. Based on the terms alone I'd be concerned within the first 60 days...

Is there a way to activate the phone (with google voice number ported) without opening the box, and in 4 months I can sell phone as brand new?
