Google Fi begins retail push with SIM cards at Best Buy

Google's Project Fi MVNO, which launched in 2015, brought something new to the table.

Phones compatible with Google Fi: What are your options?

SIM cards for Google Fi, Google's own Wi-Fi-first phone network, will now be available in over 500 Best Buy locations, Google announced Monday. Best Buy staff will not assist in activating the SIM card; the store is only a retail outlet for you to purchase a SIM instead of having to wait a few days, or in my case, weeks, for a SIM card to arrive before setting up service. After you activate the SIM, Google will give you a $10 service credit to compensate you for buying the card.

Black leopard spotted in Africa for first time in 100 years
There are nine leopard subspecies located from Africa all the way to eastern Russian Federation . While common in subspecies native to tropical forests, on the open savannah they are very rare.

That, with its network hopping ability across T-Mobile, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular's networks make it a desirable wireless choice for those who don't use that much mobile data each month. Fine, you can pay Best Buy $9.99 for the same SIM card with no waiting. If you need a data-only SIM for your secondary devices, you will still need to order that directly from Google. The only issue with that system, of course, is that you have to wait for the SIM card to arrive in the mail.

Keep in mind that Best Buy employees will not be able to help with Fi SIM card activations, though the steps seem simple enough. Enter your email to be subscribed to our newsletter.
