Do NOT Get Google Fi!!

By Therealmcteag @therealmcteag

Abandon all hope ye who Enter the nether region that is Google Fi. As I sit here awaiting yet another callback i can tell you for 800 dollars the Google Pixel 3 XL has been a nightmare that I will continue to pay for for 18 more moths.

While YES; they DO deliver sometimes amazingly low bills, its mostly after you fight an uphill battle to be credited for your troubles.

Whatever you do NEVER use the headphones, which are cute, because the doggle will destroy your charging port in under 35 hours of average use. And you may not be able to charge it. And that would be REALLY bad, wouldn’t it?

You need to have about 2 grand in credit to deal with the dizzying (and slow) exchange policy ive sadly walked through no less than 7 times. Its been a helluva 6 months

Having no sim card causes little issues here and there too.

So yeah the cameras great and T mobile service for talk and text are just fine, app failure and random reboots measn that when the super slow camera is up, if you havent already missed the moment already it might just crash.

Reddit is doing a brisk trade in hate stories about these people. I long ago began to Do NOT Get Google Fi!!wish that the volcano on whatever remote island these people would blow up and leave it a lifeless atoll. I’ve been misunderstood, dropped off hold and transferred badly so many times. They probably aren’t a scam, but atthe end of the day it may as well be because its endless indignity.

Thats what they’ve reduced me to as they absorb my money and just lay pipe to me like the bitch they surely think I am. And since I just dont have 600 laying around to buy a phone that I have come to loathe, they might just be right. Goodbye self esteem!

But at least I probably will never have to live with any more of this outright Unethical and dishonest way of doing business on a daily basis. And maybe I’ll be able to listen to a book on a train with enough clarity!

So this is what its come to – I’m probably gonna deactivate the phone, punt pay for it til i can sell it for anything I can get it will only cost me 25 bucks a month. I’m literally gonna pay money not to use this thing. It’s cheaper.

And its worth the disruption. They’ve put me through so many this is nothing  Maybe I can get an Obama-phone for a while in my enhanced financial distress? I guess down the road its regular T-Mobile with a phone I don’t hate? Or perhaps I could bring back carrier pigeons because if I have to call in sick using this thing I don’t even trust the Contacts App to work while I find a payphone I’ll lose my job and feed pigeons  so I may as well train one. Maybe I could even race them like Mike Tyson? Because I’ll have plenty of phone-less time getting back to nature if I don’t pry loose almost a months rent to Un-Fuck this mistake.

Don’t be like me! Or the person who listens to my outright lies about this on Ebay where I’ll say I loved and but I really want to upgrade to the 4 so bad cause Fi is the shit! There HAS to be someone dumber than me!

Do NOT Get Google Fi!!
