My guess is, in all likelihood, using physical sim from another carrier will not make someone ineligible.

But, boy, if Google wanted a way to wriggle out of these obligations, this is where they'd start. Not sure it's worth $1000 to figure out...

Iím sure itís ok to do.  Iím afraid to risk it. I can wait the four months. Iím an apple guy but Iím liking the phone. It would be very nice to try it with my real phone number.

Any harm in plugging in another carrier's sim after 60 days?

"Hi Dan,

I would like to start this email with an apology for the delayed response. This was due to high volume of emails from our customers.

I see that you want to use a physical SIM card in your Pixel 3 device.

Please know that you can absolutely us a physical SIM card along with your Pixel 3 device. However, you can use only Google Fi SIM card. 
As soon as you activate one service on your device, the other one goes deactivated. Hence, if you insert any other service provider's SIM card in the device and activate it, then you won't be eligible for the 'Travel on Fi' promotional benefits.

For any of your further questions, please feel free to reply on this Email, contact us via Chat or you can reach us @ 1-844-TALK2FI.

Looking forward to see you soon.
Have a great and successful year ahead.☺️



Thanks,

Anindya

Is this new?

It's been there for about two weeks.
On my account it showed the regular promo, and on my wife's it shows the 200 dollar even i had previously been assured that it was eligible for the full promo. They're still getting back to me now...

I noticed it a couple of weeks ago. It shows $1,000 pending for each of us.

What does it mean deactivated? Clearly I can tell you the service is not paused. So it's deactivated and I am being charged but it's not paused and I won't be eligible for the promo!?

That makes no sense.

Your guess is as good as mine. But I'm not going to risk it.

Not working for me either, making me feel kind of queasy.  I DID use the same email address that I initially signed up with.
