I just got my pixel and activated it, and am getting an error in transferring my google voice number.  Called customer service and it turns out that you are not allowed to port over a GV phone number that is linked to the same account that signed up for FI?  They told me to transfer my GV number away, and then try porting it.  Anybody else had this experience?

My account hadn't been used in years, and wasn't linked to my mobile.  Could that be my issue?

Perhaps this means you can use physical SIM from another carrier provided you do so than fewer than 7 days? <shrugs>

My question is what happens if you need to RMA a phone due to call quality issues (audio randomly doesn't transmit to the other side)...

I got a total different email.  I was told “Don’t even try it!”

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.

If you have any queries, please feel free to reply back to the same email. We will be available 24/7.

Thanks,

Sara

Has anyone tried it? Does your Google Fi account still show the phone as being active?

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
