Project Fi becomes Google Fi and adds iPhone support

Furthermore, if FI service is paused for more than 7 days or the activation is canceled within 120 days the value of the gift card will be charged to the users Google Payment account.

Oh, and Google is dropping the "project" label.

You will receive an email from Google Fi around 75 to 90 days after device activation. You won't be able to use Google Fi's VPN, for example. First, it combines cellular and WiFi so that you may be making calls or receiving text messages over WiFi, but the service will seamlessly transition to cellular when you leave a hotspot.

Trump says he wouldn't take Manafort pardon 'off the table'
In this file photo shows the exterior of Trump Tower skyscraper at 5th Avenue and 56th Street, Aug. 24, 2013, in New York City. He now says that was a lie: negotiations continued until June, just after Trump had secured the presidential nomination.

Cell service actually comes from Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. iPhones will connect to either Sprint or T-Mobile.

Third, Google only charges you for the data you use each month - you pay $20 per month for unlimited talk and text, and then $10 per gigabyte of data. Use just 500MB? It will be $25.

It's easy to cancel Fi should you grow exhausted of it, you only pay for the data you use, and the service's automatic network switching feature allows you to get the best coverage no matter where you are. Alternatively, if you're starting up Fi on your current phone, the company will give you $200 in service credit upon joining. Past year the company started adding support for some Android One devices including the Moto X4. If that sounds too good to be true, well for the most part it was limited to just a few Android phones. iPhone users were either out of luck, or had to employ complicated workarounds. Moreover, if the purchase is more than $1000 also you will still be getting $1000 only not more than that.

Argentina considering probe into Saudi crown prince
The alleged torture of Saudi human rights activists and the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi are also mentioned in the filing. The crown prince was accompanied by the Tunisian president, in an official motorcade, to Cartage presidential Palace.

Google took another step towards becoming a phone company Wednesday with a relaunch of its mobile phone service under a new Google Fi branding. Apple's devices are supported in a beta, though, so there may be some growing pains.

The report says "Fi-friendly" phones will "offer the best overall user experience for subscribers", without going into detail on what that means, exactly. Today only, if you sign up for new Google Fi service and buy a new phone, you will get gift cards that total up to the full cost of the phone.

Google changed the name of its MVNO service from Project Fi to Google Fi and added a new bring-your-own-device option that will allow the service to work on most Android phones and iPhones. Google is also offering promotions for new customers in celebration of the move to open things up to other phones.
