I dont know howd youd register phone without opening box.  It needs to connect to metwork, so turning it on is a must.

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?
So is there anyone who purchased with plans to resell? I guess as used? Or did most purchase to keep?

got the travel credit email last week, got the 20 referral credit email a few days ago, and today got this email:

You've earned $90 Fi credit
Hi Divy2,
You've earned Fi credit from the Bring Your Own Device promotion! You'll see the credit applied to your next bill(s).

Yeah, I got that credit too, on the earlier BF deal.

ETA: To the one who asked, wasn't it 200, we weren't supposed to get it at all, since we didn't BYOD.

For the $200 credit offer, is there a time frame from when you need to activate the phone plan by?(after receiving the sim card)?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

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?
