    I was referring to Google Fi's international data roaming, since their roaming agreements appear to be independent from T-Mobile's and generally have higher speeds. I imagine their domestic roaming...

    I checked today and for clarity, the "Essential" Unlimited 55 pricing doesn't include taxes & fees, but the two upper plans, Magenta & Magenta Plus, do. Whew. ;)

    The only real downsides of Google Fi are, it's an MVNO and doesn't get the same tower priority as (post paid) T-Mobile. And if you need customer support from Fi it's kind of a crap shoot. If you use...

    my S10 is a G9730, the Hong Kong variant. I got this one because it's a dual SIM w/Snapdragon 855 so I can use a Google-Fi sim in the other slot for int'l travel & better data roaming. This one slips...

    well, I am thinking of going to Google-Fi anyway, as I travel a fair amount and their data roaming is better than T-Mo's.

    (my Comcast use to be bad too, but they've got their act together in the...

    I'm not sure that's entirely true. I was on a trip recently in Spain, Portugal and Gibraltar with a post-paid T-mobile phone and one with Google-Fi, the data connection speeds (i.e. 2G/3G/LTE...

    Crap. I knew I should have signed up for it when they started tinkering with it recently. Now with the taxes & fees added it's less of a deal than it was. :(

    I used Fi in Spain with a Sony XZ2 and it worked great for the most part. More data at 4G speeds than expected. It didn't work at all in our brief time in Gibraltar, Google said they had no roaming...

    For that extra $10 I might as well go for the 55+ One plan at a flat $50/mo (with fees I'm paying around $37 now).

    well, I bought a Google Fi card at Best Buy which I'll try as a travel sim. That was an adventure actually, they apparently don't keep them in stock at any BB in Silicon Valley, you have to order one...

    So can one use a phone that isn’t on their compatible list? I have a Sony XZ2 which doesn’t have CDMA. It also doesn’t have bands LTE 66 or 71. Do they actively “shun” phones that they don’t support?

    yep and other advantages too, like I'd be able to use -any- phone. currently they lock out T-Mo branded phones (and some others) from use on my plan, can make upgrading a bit tricky. :)
