Seems like you can put a regular SIM in the phone and switch between fi and the SIM without deactivating fi, anyone know if this will mess up the GC offer eligibility?
I was told that all it looks like to them is the phone being off, it's not considered paused or cancelled and it won't effect my promotion eligibility. I got it in writing...

I was able to confirm this with two Fi support representatives (have the chat transcripts as well). They assured me I can have Fi on eSIM and T-Mobile on physical SIM and it will not violate the terms of the Travel on Fi promotion.

I emailed them but have not received a clear response back. I tried calling but the wait was very long.

Yes go to add a plan, not sure if it can be the main line.

Just got this!

Thanks for contacting Google Fi support!

I request you to please do not insert the T-Mobile SIM card in your device as it will deactivate the eSIM on your device while switching to physical SIM. If the eSIM gets deactivated then you'll not be eligible for the promo.

I'd suggest you to please wait until you receive the credits on your account. Once you receive the credits, you can switch to your T-Mobile SIM with Google Fi.

I appreciate your understanding.

Is the 100 credit for Google advertising gonna work for the service charges? If yes, is there a way to prepay for the service?

PSA: Make sure to activate phone in the US. Fi cannot be activated overseas.

I chatted with them today rep said it needs to be activated 15 days from device delivery which was 5 days after shipment, terms say within 15 days of device shipment. Anybody looked into this?

Best thing to do is to activate it the day you received it.

I will suggest to finds someone to activate it before the "15 days of shipping"

After all to deliver the phone someone actually signed, so maybe he should ask the same guy to activate it.

You wanna prepay $500?

If he finance the phone that actually a nice idea, in case that it's possible of course
