Project Fi: What it’s like switching between three networks?

Switching between networks isn’t scary, and in fact it’s quite useful.

Usually when you sign up for a phone carrier, you’re just getting service from that one carrier. That’s not the case with Project Fi, which lets your phone actively switch between T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular. It’s a big selling point for the service, and when you add in Wi-Fi calling and texting it looks like quite the network juggling act.

How to get Google Project Fi service

Signing up for Project Fi is simple, just like the service itself.

Check to see if you’re covered by Google’s Project Fi network

Networks, when you think about it, come down to one thing: coverage.

If you’re not covered where you live, work and travel … well, nothing else matters. But in partnering with three U.S. carriers — Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular — Google’s Project Fi definitely has an interesting advantage. (And remember you also have calling available over Wi-Fi when you need it.)

But the question stands: will you have Project Fi coverage where you live, work and travel? And, of  [Read More…]

The Pixel 2’s eSIM makes it dead simple to ditch your carrier for Project Fi

Google’s new Pixels have an ace up their sleeves.

The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have what’s called an “eSIM” — essentially an embedded SIM card that can be activated and deactivated on the fly to emulate a physical SIM card. But you don’t have to know the details about how it works — you just need to know that it’s an amazing innovation that makes it dead easy to  [Read More…]

Google Pixel 2 doesn’t need a SIM card, as long as you use Project Fi

The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are the first phones to come equipped with eSIM technology, but only subscribers of Project Fi will be able to take advantage of it.

Google’s Pixel 2 event was full of announcements, and although we had a pretty good idea of what to expect going into the event, Google still managed to sneak in a few surprises here and there – one of which being eSIM support.

Mint SIM vs. Project Fi: Which is better for you?

It’s Mint SIM vs. Project Fi in this head-to-head comparison.

Mint SIM and Project Fi are “alternative carriers” or mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs). They’re not the Big Four (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile), but they lease coverage from those networks and resell it to you for less. Plans are often prepaid and fixed contracts are few and far between.

Let’s compare Mint SIM and Project Fi to see how they stack up against one another.
