T2e with Google Fi

I can say that the problems are the same with the T2
I had missed the notes on google FI,
When I travel I get a text with a carrier services verification code.
I have been having to restart my phone multiple time a day because of lockups and not sending text and lag on phone calls.
Sound like these are all related to FI…

Any update for Google FI

We haven’t done any testing ourselves and continue to not claim compatibility (especially because of experiences like yours). Is moving to another carrier an option for you?

I am going to try Tmobil

Same issue here. Fi actually seemed to work for several weeks, then started doing this thing where I would lose service for a few seconds, get it back, lose it again, and it would keep cycling like that until I restarted the phone. Restarting would stop the cycle for a few hours, but then it would just start again. I was missing calls and texts and texts weren’t being sent either. And I was getting the verification texts too. I ported over to Tello today and so far so good.

I’ve been using my T2E on Google Fi for months with no problems. Everything was going great.

Suddenly on the morning of may 18th (seems to have coincided with an update to build 06 I think although I can’t find a timestamp for that in android) I started to have disconnections and would receive the carrier service messages and see sim resynchronization happening constantly even when not rebooting. Have been having to reboot my phone constantly to avoid missing calls/messages. Yesterday on a whim I did reseat my sim card and honestly I think that has helped. Would recommend others experiencing the problem to try that.

Switching networks is not an option for me so I have ordered a pixel 4a unfortunately. Not trying to throw any shade at the teracube team. I’m a developer myself and T2E is a decent product. I look forward to future teracube devices, and hopefully can use my T2E abroad with Fi sim in slot 2. I’ve always known this was going to be more of a beta thing for me since Google Fi has marginal support with most devices outside their offering.

I just can’t justify using T2E as my main phone right now as this issue has caused problems for me but maybe I’ll be able to give it a try again. Would be willing to give it a shot after the next build drops. Is there a listing of system updates on this forum?

We have the SW15/SW16 undergoing CTS (Google play) certification right now. However supporting Google Fi is not going to be possible - we are not even sure if Google is open to working with BYOD devices for Fi.

Correction: When I say “supporting Google Fi is not going to be possible” - what I mean is we will not officially say that Google Fi works with our phones. Users are still welcome to try it out and use it if it works.

Hi Sharad,

I have 2 of my kids using their T2E’s on my Fi Family plan without issue. One is running SW16 and has no issues with calls/texts/signal.
