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...

Mind posting?

I was planning on using this phone and keeping it and don't want to wait 3 months.

Thank you for reaching out to Google Fi. I did want to confirm with you that if you utilize the dual sim functionality of the Pixel 3 phone that DOES NOT affect your eligibility of any promos as it relates to active status with Google Fi.

That's not entirely clear.

That reply could be simply talking about using esim+physical sim which are BOTH tied to Fi, not esim w/ Fi & physical sim w/ separate carrier -- which is the case most are curious about.

Check you Fi account when using the sim and see what the status is.
I just found a new supply of forks!

You're suggesting putting in P-SIM from other carrier to see status? That's exactly the risk I'm not sure I want to take.

Don't the terms allow this if it's for less that 7 days?

I have a sim from another carrier in my pixel and on my account it shows that my account is active and offers me the option to pause so it would seem it's not a problem

I guess there is no risk now.  :)

Side point as I got a separate deal on moto g6.
When going to cancel it gave the option to send the number back to google voice. So my fi account is shut and the number is now back in gv

Who wants to start a "for sale" thread of selling Google Pixels used only once must keep active for 4 months, can't change number?

Does anyone else have yet to have their phone shipped from the 11/28 deal? My order status is "Delayed" with no tracking. Black Pixel 3 XL.
