Some of the reps were claiming that a 3p sim would be considered paused Service which would be an issue even within 120 days..

That just makes no sense.

That just makes no sense.



The other way to look at it is that even if the 3P SIM folks did it prior to 60 days and don't receive GCs, that just means the Google Fi viewed that their service was not "active" for 60 days, and therefore they didn't comply with promo terms, even if they continued paying the bill for 120 days (i.e. not "cancelled").

Conversely, if they DID insert 3P SIM and received, then Google Fi viewed that their service as active anyway.

This reading, which may be the better one, would not require one who hasn't yet inserted a 3P SIM to wait until 120 days




The way it seems to me is that from 0-60 days it needs to be consecutive service
(At least that Any paused days wouldn't count towards 60 days)
From 60-120 paused days do count, but can't be longer then 7 days...

Paused isn't the same as using 3P SIM.

Agreed, but do you really want to fight google if they interpret it differently ?

Mine just came through as well! 12/15 activation.  The special promo link never worked for me on my account, for those that had similar problems.

If that makes you ineligible, you wont be completing your 120 days, no?
Seems like there was a big round now.

I am of the opinion that simply PAYING  for the service (i.e. not discontinuing) thru 120 days is sufficient. See posts above.

Unless 7 days of paused Service is going on the 60 days and cancellation on 120...

That's nonsense.  Pause has a particular meaning in Google Fi lingo:

3P SIM cannot be said to "pause" service... imo.

You don't think my opinion wrote the T&C? Smartest kid in the class, you were, huh?

Either way, I'm not guaranteeing my interpretation, nor suggesting you follow my lead.  But I also don't see the smartest kid in the class offering an alternative interpretation either.

One can always be more risk averse and more conservative, but that comes with it's own costs (not being able to use your new phone).  But just like with investing, being super conservative and keeping all your investments in cash leads to a loss of approx 2-3% of purchasing power every year.
