Following its debut at the end of April, it appears that Project Fi invitations have started to go out.
One Reddit user claims to have gotten an invitation to Project Fi, and they posted screenshots of the entire registration process for us all to see. Once you confirm your account and ZIP code, you’ll be given the option to transfer your Google Voice number to Project Fi. If you choose to do so, your Google Voice credit will transfer to Fi, as will your call forwarding, voicemail, texts, and history. However, you’ll lose your ability to make and receive calls with Google Voice and Talk. If you choose not to use Google Voice, you can port your existing number to Project Fi or get a new number. However, it’s worth noting that if you use a different number with Project Fi but also have a Google Voice number tied to your Google account, your Google Voice number will be release when you activate Project Fi service.
Finally, you select your plan, confirm your address, and agree to the terms of service. Project Fi’s plan starts with a $20 base for unlimited talk and text, and then you add data at a rate of $10 per gigabyte.
Now that we’ve gotten a better look at the Project Fi registration process, we know that existing Google Voice users will have some choices to make when they sign up for the service. That may not be a big deal for some folks, but if you’ve been a Google Voice user in recent years, you now know the decisions you’ll have to make if you want to sign up for Project Fi.
