Fi plans are designed to fit your data usage. You can choose to pay only for the data you use, or go unlimited—all without contracts or hidden fees. No matter which plan you choose, you get great coverage, privacy and security features that protect your personal information, and family features that help your family stay safer on their phones and build healthy digital habits. You can make calls to other countries at little to no additional cost, and get international texting from the US included free. On Unlimited Plus and Flexible, you're also covered with international data in 200+ destinations at no extra charge.
It depends on which plan you choose.
Simply Unlimited is our most affordable plan for unlimited data, calls, and texts, with rates starting at $30/month per line with three or more lines. From the US, you get unlimited texts to other countries, free calls to Canada and Mexico included, and affordable calls to other countries. It also comes with data and texting in Mexico and Canada.
Unlimited Plus gives you unlimited data, calls and texts, and is perfect if you travel internationally or use your phone as a hotspot for your other devices. At $50/month per line with three lines, it comes with all the same features as Simply Unlimited, plus international calls to 50+ destinations included free and international data abroad in 200+ destinations at no extra cost. You also get full-speed hotspot tethering and 100 GB of cloud storage with Google One.
If you use less data or lots of Wi-Fi, the Flexible plan can help you save. On the Flexible plan, you only pay for the data you use—down to the cent. It's $17/month per line with three lines for unlimited talk and text, plus $10/GB for data both at home and abroad.
|Lines||Flexible||Simply Unlimited||Unlimited Plus|
|1||$20.00 + $10/GB||$60/line||$70/line|
|2||$17.50/line + $10/GB||$45/line||$60/line|
|3||$16.67/line + $10/GB||$30/line||$50/line|
|4||$16.25/line + $10/GB||$30/line||$45/line|
|5||$16.00/line + $10/GB||$30/line||$45/line|
|6||$15.84/line + $10/GB||$30/line||$45/line|
On Fi, you always get unlimited domestic talk and text, unlimited texts to other countries, calls to Canada and Mexico included free, and affordable calls to other countries.
Taxes and government surcharges vary by service address, but are normally between 10-20%. For example, if your monthly bill is $40, the taxes on your statement could be between $4-8.
No, there's no annual service contract when you sign up. We also don't charge fees if you leave Google Fi. If you buy a new device when you sign up for Google Fi and choose to pay for your device over time, the remaining monthly payments on your device are due if you leave.
Yes, you can suspend or pause your Google Fi service for up to three months. You can easily resume your service at any time. If you haven't resumed service after three months, it will automatically turn back on. Keeping Fi paused for extended periods of time is a violation of our Terms of Service.
On the Flexible plan, should you choose to pause your line, you won't be charged for the days your service is paused. On Simply Unlimited and Unlimited Plus, should you choose to pause your line, you'll be charged through the end of your billing cycle—your bundled benefits, such as Google One, will remain active to avoid disturbing your service.
On Simply Unlimited and Unlimited Plus, you'll be billed at the start of your billing cycle. Any additional charges not included in your plan (e.g. calls made abroad and extra high-speed data) will be charged at the end of your billing cycle.
On Flexible, you'll be charged a monthly fee for unlimited calls and texts at the beginning of your billing cycle (i.e. $20 for one individual, $15 for each person after that). You'll be charged for data usage at $10/GB and for any additional charges (e.g. calls made abroad and extra high-speed data) at the end of your billing cycle.
When you get your first bill, you'll only be billed for the people who are already active on your plan. People who activate later will be prorated on the following bill.
Yes. To match your data needs, you can switch plans once a month, as many times as you want. If you're switching from Simply Unlimited to Unlimited Plus, the switch will take effect immediately. For all other switches, changes will take effect at the start of your next billing cycle. Everyone in a group plan must be on the same Fi plan, so a plan switch affects everyone in the group. Only the group plan owner can initiate a plan switch for their group.
No, everyone within a group must be on the same Google Fi plan: Flexible, Simply Unlimited, or Unlimited Plus. But the group plan owner can choose to switch the group between plans anytime.
Yes. If you're new to Google Fi, you can set up a group plan during your checkout process. Just have the intended plan owner click “Join Fi” to get started. Everyone in your group must be on the same Fi plan: Flexible, Simply Unlimited, or Unlimited Plus.
If you're already on Google Fi you can invite people to your plan here. You can have up to six people, including the group owner, in a group.
All Fi plans come with family features that make it easier to keep your family safer on their phones and create healthy digital habits, at no extra cost. You can create a data budget to decide how much data your child can use before their data is slowed down. If your child uses an Android phone, you can block calls and texts from strangers and set up Family Link to establish digital ground rules.
Yes. Family features come included in all Fi plans at no extra cost.
As a parent on Fi, you can create a data budget to decide how much data your child can use before it slows down.
If your child uses an Android phone, you can also choose to only allow numbers on their contact list to call or text. You can also easily set up Family Link from the Fi app to set digital ground rules, including content filters, screen time limits, and the ability to locate your child as long as they're carrying their phone.
If your child uses an Android phone, you can set certain digital ground rules for your child at no additional cost by using Google Family Link. Fi makes it easy to get started with guided set up from the Fi app. When you set up Family Link for your child's account, you can guide them as they learn, play and explore online -- including managing your child's apps, keeping an eye on their screen time, remotely locking their device, and more. Learn more.
You can also easily manage your child's account by setting data alerts and data limits in the Google Fi app.
Yes, we support all standard messaging types, including SMS, MMS, shortcodes, and group texting.
For iPhone®, while iMessage will work out of the box, you'll need to update your iPhone® MMS settings to send and receive texts to and from Android phones. We'll walk you through this when you set up your phone, and you may have to update these settings when you get a new version of iOS.
On Flexible and Unlimited Plus, Google Fi does not charge any extra fees to use your phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot. You can use your phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot to share your data with any Wi-Fi-compatible device. That data will count toward your monthly usage. If you're on Simply Unlimited, you can upgrade to Unlimited Plus to access hotspot tethering.
Google Fi's goal is to optimize all streaming video. On Flexible, video streams at the rate determined by you and the application provider. On Simply Unlimited or Unlimited Plus, Fi attempts to optimize video by streaming at up to 480p (standard definition). Video from some content providers may not be automatically optimized on Simply Unlimited and Unlimited Plus. If you're a content provider and your video service is not automatically optimized, please contact us at email@example.com.
If you use more than 15 GB of data in a cycle on Flexible or more than 22 GB in a cycle on Simply Unlimited or Unlimited Plus, you'll experience slower speeds (256 kbps) above those respective data thresholds until your next billing cycle begins. For reference: only 1% of people who use Fi ever hit 22 GB.
If you need significant amounts of high-speed data, you can opt to pay $10/GB for the data you use past the data threshold for your plan in a given cycle (15GB for Flexible or 22GB for Simply Unlimited and Unlimited Plus).
These data thresholds are based on individual data usage, not group data usage.
Yes. Data speeds may be slower after an individual surpasses 15 GB of data usage on Flexible and 22 GB of data usage on Simply Unlimited and Unlimited Plus. After hitting the threshold, you can pay to have high-speed data at a rate of $10/GB. Group plan owners can make this change in the Fi app or on desktop for any person in their group; non-group plan owners cannot initiate the change on their own.
Google One is a membership that helps you get more out of Google. You can get more space for everything with 100 GB of cloud storage, as well as extra benefits to give you full peace of mind, such as automatic phone backup (including original quality photos and videos, messages and more), premium support and family sharing. As a member, you'll also get perks like discounts on Google products.
Unlimited Plus includes a Google One membership with 100 GB of cloud storage for each eligible member at no extra cost. Once you activate on Fi, your Google One membership will take effect automatically. If you're already a paying Google One member and you subscribe to Unlimited Plus, your Google One membership will be discounted by $1.99/month.
Please note that some types of email accounts aren't eligible for Google One and automatic phone backup is limited to Android devices.
If you cancel or switch out of Unlimited Plus, your Google One membership will be canceled after 7 days. After 7 days, you and the people on your group plan (if family sharing is enabled) will lose access to your extra storage and member benefits. Each person will keep the default 15 GB of storage available to every Google user. If you're using more than 15 GB of storage, all your files will stay safe, but you won't be able to store anything new. Learn more here.
But don't worry, you can re-activate your Google One membership at one.google.com with plans starting at $1.99/mo.
Bill Protection is a feature built into the Fi Flexible plan that offers a way to save money. Here's how it works:
Data costs $10 for each GB used, until Bill Protection kicks in at a data threshold that depends on the number of people on your plan. After that, data is free for the rest of your billing cycle.
If you use 1.4 GB of data in a month, you'll pay just $14 for data. And if you're an individual plan owner who has used 10 GB of data, you'll never pay more than $60 for data.
If you use more than 15 GB of data in a cycle (less than 1% of individual Fi users as of Jan. 2018), you'll experience slower speeds above 15 GB with Bill Protection. You can opt out of slower speeds by paying for $10/GB any individual data used above 15 GB in a billing cycle.
Here's how it works for different group sizes:
|Plan size||Data||Maximum data cost|
|1 person||6 GB||$80|
|2 people||10 GB||$135|
|3 people||12 GB||$170|
|4 people||14 GB||$205|
|5 people||16 GB||$240|
|6 people||18 GB||$275|
Yes. Data used in the United States and any other covered country or territory qualifies for Bill Protection. You can learn more about our international coverage here.
You can have separate Fi and Voice numbers on the same Google account and set up call forwarding between them. To set up call forwarding, visit your Google Voice settings page. For additional information on using your Google Voice number, please visit the Google Voice help center.
Through technology developed with our partners, phones designed for Fi put you on the best available network among multiple major networks from T-mobile, Sprint and U.S Cellular as well as millions of secure Wi-Fi connections*. This means you get access to more cell towers and 4G LTE in more places**. If your phone designed for Fi is 5G-compatible or you bring your own unlocked phone compatible with T-Mobile's 5G network, you'll have access to 5G nationwide on Fi. 5G coverage for the iPhone 12 series is not currently supported on Fi. The iPhone 12 series is supported by Fi's 4G network. Phones that aren't designed for Fi are covered by T-Mobile.
Google Fi's network also extends to 200+ countries and territories so you're automatically covered abroad at no extra charge. No setup required -- you can just use your phone as you would at home.
*Sprint is merging with T-Mobile, so support for phones designed for Fi released in September 2020 and after is changing. Pixel devices will support Sprint's network in data-only mode when using DSDS (Fi Dual Sim). Other devices will no longer support Sprint's network. Samsung phones designed for Fi will be able to automatically switch among millions of secure Wi-Fi connections in the coming months.
**As part of our efforts to continually improve our network and connection speeds, Fi does not support 2G and 3G for phones activated after August 4, 2020.
If your phone designed for Fi is 5G-compatible, or if you bring your own unlocked device compatible with T-Mobile's 5G network, you'll have access to 5G nationwide on Fi, which is included in all plans. 5G coverage for the iPhone 12 series is not currently supported on Fi. The iPhone 12 series is supported by Fi's 4G network. Currently, Fi does not provide international 5G roaming. You can check 5G coverage in your area on our coverage map.
You can only move between networks with a phone designed for Fi. When multiple carriers are available, Google Fi will move you to the network that our analysis shows will give you the best Fi experience at your current location, whether that is 5G (for 5G compatible phones), 4G LTE, 3G, or 2G. We're constantly learning and improving, to account for factors such as newly-built towers or newly-available radio frequencies. And if your current network is providing weak or no coverage, we'll adjust in real time to find you a stronger connection.
If you have a phone designed for Fi, you'll be connected to free, open Wi-Fi networks that do not require any action to get connected (such as entering a password, watching an ad, or checking in). Fi uses a network quality database to help determine which networks are high quality and reliable. Other Android phones and iPhone® do not automatically switch to free, open Wi-Fi networks, but you can still connect manually.
As part of a new trial, if you're on Simply Unlimited or Unlimited Plus, use an Android phone, and use the Fi VPN, you'll also be connected to the “Google Fi Wi-Fi” network at no extra cost. The “Google Fi Wi-Fi” network includes select high-quality Wi-Fi hotspots from providers Fi has partnered with to give you coverage in more places. If you don't use Google Fi, these hotspots usually require you to sign up and pay a fee to use. To learn more about automatically connecting to the “Google Fi Wi-Fi” network, visit our Help Center.
If you're on a phone designed for Fi, when Google Fi automatically connects you to an open Wi-Fi network, we help protect your data by sending it through a secure connection, known as a Virtual Private Network (VPN). This secure connection protects your data from being looked at by other users on the open Wi-Fi network.
Yes. More detail below:
Phones designed for Fi: Just make sure you're connected to Wi-Fi and make a call like you normally would using the phone dialer.
Phones compatible with Fi (may vary by phone): If you have an Android phone, you can turn on Wi-Fi calling on the "Phone settings" page in the Google Fi app. At this time, Fi does not support Wi-Fi calling for iPhone®.

If you're on Unlimited Plus, calls to 50+ countries & territories are included free. Please check international rates for more information.
Making calls while abroad: If you're making a call while abroad and are not on Wi-Fi, you'll be charged 20¢/min.

Calls to other destinations will be charged at affordable per-minute rates depending on the country.
It depends on which plan you're on.

You must have active Fi service in U.S. (not including territories) before you go abroad. International coverage can then be turned on in the Fi app. Once it's turned on, you'll be covered at no extra charge when you travel abroad. International coverage will remain on until you turn it off, so there's no need to turn it on each time you travel.
It depends on which plan you're on.
On Flexible and Unlimited Plus, Fi offers high speed data in over 200+ countries and territories at no extra charge. On Unlimited Plus, this means international data is included. On Flexible, you'll pay the same $10/GB you pay in the U.S. For a list of countries covered by Fi, please see our international rates.

No, Google Fi only supports talk, text, and data usage in the 200+ countries and territories where we have coverage. If you're traveling to a country that isn't included, you will need to get a local SIM card for that country for cellular coverage. We do this to protect you from surprise bills in places where we can't provide data at no extra charge, 20¢ per minute calls, and unlimited international texts. However, if you have a phone designed for Fi or a compatible Android phone, in most countries you visit, you'll be able to talk and text over Wi-Fi.
The current phones designed for Fi are Pixels, Moto G7, Moto G6, LG G7 ThinQ, LG V35 ThinQ, and Android One Moto X4. They are built to support multiple cellular networks, and they have a state-of-the-art cellular radio tuned to work across network types. You must have the North American model of the above devices to use it on the Google Fi network.
Other Android phones and iPhones do not have the same network switching technology but still get many of the other benefits of the plan.
Yes. Phones that are not designed for Fi can still get many of the benefits of the Google Fi plan. To check whether you can bring your phone, use our compatibility checker, or see a full list of compatible phones. When you sign up, you'll have the option to get a free SIM card shipped to you, or you may be able to activate your phone without one.
Yes. You can buy a device from Google Fi with two ways to pay: all at once or, for qualified buyers, over 24 months. There's no interest or fees but a credit check is required. See terms and conditions here.
If you're already a Google Fi subscriber looking to finance additional devices, you can do so as long as you have enough remaining credit to finance the extra devices. Find your credit line amount in your Fi account, or when you go through the checkout process.
Anyone aged 18 or older is able to purchase a device. Only group plan owners can finance devices if deemed qualified or enroll in device protection through Google Fi. Group plan owners are eligible to finance multiple devices.
Yes. You can trade in your device at any time when purchasing a new device. If you finance a new device or your trade-in value exceeds your purchase amount, you will get the remaining balance in Google Fi service credit. You can trade in multiple devices, but only one phone per order.
If you're buying a new device, you can get an estimate for your current phone value and order a trade-in kit when you purchase your new device. Shipping is free, and you'll receive your credit card refund once we've confirmed your device condition.
You can expect to receive your trade-in credits in the form of a credit card refund within five days of device inspection or in the form of Fi credits on your next billing statement.
Any device you purchase from Google Fi is under a manufacturer's warranty following the purchase of the device. If your new phone is defective and you report it within this time period, Google Fi will replace or repair the phone at no cost.
Google Fi also offers device protection for devices purchased from Google Fi.

An eSIM is an embedded SIM that lets you set up your connection on screen the moment you power on your new device, or anytime on a compatible phone. With eSIM, you can set your phone up with the tap of a button—no physical SIM card required.
If you would rather not use Google Fi's eSIM, you can insert a physical SIM card at any time and set up your phone as you normally would. Google Fi currently supports eSIM in Pixel and iPhone® devices that are eSIM compatible.
Yes, you can bring your current personal number with you to Google Fi or take it with you if you leave. Because some carriers do not allow you to take your number, we'll check if you can transfer it when you sign up.
Your phone number transfer will start once you activate service on your phone. Most transfers take less than 15 minutes. Very few transfers take more than one day.
If you're on a family plan, transferring your number may impact the other people still on the plan. We recommend calling your carrier to check.
Yes, you can. In the Manage device section of your Fi app, you'll see a link that says "Transfer a number to Fi." Tap on that link to start bringing your number to Fi (it will replace the new number you got at activation).
No. Google Fi does not charge any activation or cancellation fees.
If you want to end your service with your current wireless provider after you switch to Google Fi, you will need to contact your current wireless provider after you activate your Google Fi account.
