Ratings and Reviews
Great Service… Lacking competitor iPhone experience
Google Fi is a fantastic service and I’m grateful Google has joined in on competing against the major carriers (even if they do have to rent major carrier towers).
If you need an easy plan that links with your Google account… this is it. The flexible financing plan is fantastic as you pay based on usage. I could get a $50 bill most months. At most, $85 for 16GB high speed data.
Here’s where I take a star away… The app itself lacks intuition that users should expect to have with modern carrier plans:
- To read voicemails, you cannot use the default Phone app. You must go into the Fi app.
- Wifi calling is disabled and cannot be enabled.
- you have to manually do the setup process by typing in random characters into the advanced cellular settings of your iPhone. With mint mobile, the app configures everything for you. No need to manually fill out 5 cryptic fields for service.
While the lack of these features are certainly not deal breakers, Mint Mobile offers all of these small quality of life features. Mint is simply easier to use, and it’s this focus and attention to detail that I’ve switched.
Nevertheless, I still recommend Google Fi! I enjoyed the service, and hope Google does not axe this like they do with most other apps they owned!
Terrible custom service
I have been with Google Fi for 2 years, since it was project Fi. I lost phone service on my Pixel 2 ten days ago after a system updat from Google and have reached out countless time to Google for support. During the first 2 days I did live chats where they gave me about 20 troubleshooting options that did not succeed. After this the told me it would be escalated to their specialist team and they would email me within 24-72 hours. A while to go without phone service but I could deal with it. 72 hours came and went with no email from Google fi. After email their support team again the asked me if because I had switched from my pixel to an iPhone that I wouldn’t need them anymore. I responded no, I still would like MY phone to work seeing as I am borrowing this one from somebody else. They told me they would get back to me again with 24-72 hours. That was four days ago and I have been emailing them once a day to get them to look at my case or at least let me know what is going on but it seems like they are ignoring me. Bottom line. Google Fi is only good when it’s working but if the slightest hiccup happens it’s a train wreck. Stay away unless you can afford to just buy a new phone when there’s break themselves.
I’d give it a 3 star but I want people to read the review.
I have had data connection issues on and off with this service since I got it. Sometimes you get someone in customer service that sounds like they know what they are doing, then you have agents who totally waste your time on reboots, airplane mode, etc when this has been tested previously. This time my no data issue was “solved” by turning off my phone, removing the SIM card, turning on the phone, turning off the phone, replacing SIM card, and turning on the phone. The agent thought that this was an acceptable fix to the problem. I replied I am not going to take out my SIM card every time I have a data loss issue. “Rest assured it will not happen again”. I asked for the specific reason why it happened this time. No specific reason was given. So I am not assured in any way that this issue won’t come back.
I am more than happy to change my rating if someone can give me a technical reason why this worked and the issue won’t come back.
In general when the service is working, it’s great! Even worked seamlessly on a trip to Europe through multiple countries.
But the customer service is lacking skills.
