Project Fi Tip: Maybe this an obvious thing, but wasn't for me.

One Fi support told me that Visa Gift Cards were accepted as payment. Then another didn't. Then a third confirmed that they aren't accepted. Then my last bill was charged to my Visa Gift Card lol.

Maybe they are, maybe they aren't. It would just be easy to use them as cash to pay for your service anyway right?

Visa Gift Card workaround. Use Venmo to have someone pay you with the card (or create two Venmo accounts). Then just transfer the Venmo balance to your bank. Only extra info needed is the card zipcode. Find that by just checking or registering from the site on the back of the gift card.

Adding a spot in OpenStreetMap. How long does it take for that spot to appear in the Maps.Me app for example since it pulls OSM data?

Of course here...using it since Nokia maps.... real offline navigation. Sure you can download a certain area on google maps but if you are traveling across Europe for example you need whole countries. That's not possible with Google maps. Basically since your data won't probably work in another country using online navigation is just useless.

Anyone have tips on finding the sweet spot so things aren't blurry? My eyesight isn't bad. I feel like my eyes aren't genetically compatible LOL

If you ported your number to Fi from Sideline, how long did it take?

I got the notification from Sideline that it ported, but it's been a couple hours and Fi hasn't notified me yet. No biggie, just curious.

Is there a way to send ETA to friends from Google Maps yet? I know it was mentioned as upcoming awhile ago, and Waze already has it.

Isn't there a way to add Visa Gift Cards to Android Pay? Adding via debit doesn't work. Adding via Gift Card doesn't show up anything related in search.

+Wendy Nevers  I tried Sygic, but within a half hour of using it, some of my normal places didn't come up in search. Liked the interface though

Contract is up with Verizon. It's just passed mid-way through the billing cycle. If I cancel or port now, will Verizon charge me for an entire billing cycle for my final bill, or prorated?

Chose to get a new number on Fi. I was told it'd be minutes to a few hours for the Fi app to notify me that it's ready. It's been almost 24 hours. I'm still a Fi newbie. Not used to things like this taking so long. Is this normal, to be told one thing, and wait longer than they mentioned?

+calvin murray also I like t-mobile which is easily the best value proposition for city dwellers. In addition to Fi, I have the old Walmart plan of 30/Mo. 5gb. But I really like Fi for the Intl and the data only Sims.

It's been over 24 hours since porting my number over to Fi, and sending and recieving SMS still isn't working. No error messages, they just don't go through. Fi support has run out of ideas. Anyone else have to wait for SMS to start working?
