I got fi as a second sim thing now for my pixel 4a 5g and it does not switch to sprint anymore at all which is great

I came pretty close to trading in my pixel 3xl in for ~$165 for a $50 moto g power.

How does the trade in thing work? My display has a big old scratch on it, but not cracked. Do they take off money for that sort of thing? Do you think that trade in is totally stupid? Seems close to a side grade. Losing the OLED screen is a bit sad. Thoughts?

Did Google nuke being able to make calls from your computer with your Fi number? It's a feature I use a lot and I tried making an outgoing call today and I can't seem to place a call in Hangouts or Voice

Keep an adversary in the dark about what you're capable of, and he has to assume the worst.

It's a drat shame that there doesn't appear to be a way to log into Messages without having your cell phone on you.

The Triad Frog is pleased with this custom title purchase.

Having everything in Hangouts was honestly the sticking point for me staying with Fi. Now that it's dead, I'm really considering Mint. It's way cheaper, and there's no real reason to stay any more.

Is that still rolling out? As far as I know I'm still making calls via hangouts and I don't see anything new on messages for web letting me call.

Same. Can't do it from the app, either.

I got it figured out, it's still in beta but I tried to make a voice call over hangouts today and it didn't work.

I had to sign out of messages web, and there was a little beta advertisement for Google Fi users towards the bottom. I followed the steps there and it worked perfectly.

It's loving stupid that I have to turn off RCS for it to work, though. It's like two steps forward, three steps back, and one step forward again. But maybe a half step back again also?

What a goddamn mess to get there, at least it's functional and nicer than voice calls over hangouts was.
