In a celebration organized to celebrate the birthday of Google Fi, the search engine giant is now slashing cot for its Pixel 3 as well as Pixel 3 XL smartphones for both new & existing users. At the moment, Pixel 3 costs around $799, but given the new birthday offer, you can buy the same for as low as $399. Additionally, doubling the storage of the Pixel 3 from 64GB to its higher version at 128GB will cost you somewhere around $50. Now, if you require the Pixel 3 XL, the price starts at $449 for the 64GB variant while the 128GB variant comes at $50 extra.
This offer is valid only on 22nd April until 11:59 PM PT. Additionally, one can reap this benefit only once for each person. Say that you have a family of 3 members, each of you can get the discount for Pixel 3 a total of 3 times. Now, as far as the strings attached to this are concerned, Google requires the buyers to activate their phone with the use of Google Fi in the duration of 30 days after receiving the confirmation email for shipping. However, there is no such restriction that ties you to Google Fi. This means you are completely free to shift to any of the popular carriers once you have successfully activated both the Pixel 3 & Pixel 3 XL, as they work on both CDMA and GSM carriers. On the other hand, Google Fi could serve you good if you are someone who doesn’t use much of data.
Google Fi is the network that serves as pay-what-you-want MNVO and works on the back of the Sprint, T-Mobile, as well as US Cellular’s networks. Now, depending on where you live in the United States, the Fi will move you over towards the carriers that can provide you with the best results when it comes to network speed and coverage.
Once you have activated the phone over Fi, the users shall be efficient enough to use the same internationally without the need for swapping out the SIM card or even paying anything extra for data and coverage. Before this, Google Fi just worked on the phones that were created specifically to switch between CDMA and GSM carriers. Since then, the network has brought compatibility and practicality to all of the iOS and Android phones. Google’s Pixel 3a XL & Pixel 3a are both expected to be announced dated 7th May at the Google I/O.
