    The sign up discount on the Nexus 5X caught my eye. Not sure if that comes with any hooks or not, but if it doesn't, our own errrr, Hook should keep an eye peeled in case the 6P gets similar treatment someday. Looks like Google is getting comfortable enough running an mvno to start enticing users in. You never know what the next carrot will be.

    This may end up making it worth it to switch... When I was looking at upwards of $350 a phone, it was hard to imagine being able to switch anytime soon.

    http://www.zdnet.com/article/how-project-fi-killed-my-google-voice-setup/

    I think there have been some discussions about the voice/fi zone of destruction somewhere around here, and this article is very wordy yet not very information dense, it's still a good warning flare for any voice user to read before signing up for project fi. Long story short, you'll probably want to sign up with a completely different google account than your current voice account if you want to preserve your flexibility. All other paths are dragon-infested.

    Looking back through this thread brought back a lot of good memories, but clearly this thread's time has come and gone. Someone new looking at the title of the thread would say "Well, duh." :vbwink: PAYG data options abound and are reasonably priced. Even Verizon has good PAYG plans (Hook checks to see if Hell is frozen).

    So I suggest this thread be closed and unpinned, letting it be just part of the archive of great old threads here with historical information and interesting people. :vbsmile: Any discussions of PAYG data probably deserves a new thread with a more relevant title.

    For the most part, yes, Hell is frozen:

    Aren't we required to drag it off topic before it's archived?

    Per suggestion above, I'll close and unpin this thread. If there is reason to resurrect it, you can always message one of us to undo those changes.

    Thanks. :)
