I just finished my free year of service with Sprint and working now out the kinks of using an Project Fi SIM with an iPhone(6s). After a year of paying $2.90 a month (for regulatory and taxes), my first bill post-promo was $66.76! I’m cheap and switched back to Project Fi where my monthly bill is around $30-35/month.
For what it’s worth, Sprint’s unlimited plan was pretty decent:
- Unlimited data, talk & text
- 10GB LTE Mobile Hotspot (tethering)
- Free Global Roaming (2G speeds)
- Best Perk: Getting unlimited 4G LTE data in Japan!
Project Fi is only officially available for Google’s own Nexus and Pixel phones; technically iPhones are not supported by Project Fi. Project Fi SIMs need to be first be activated on a Nexus/Pixel phone before using it in a non-supported phone.
Note: MMS may not work correctly on an iPhone and no visual voicemail.You’ll have to check voicemail the old school way by calling your own phone number.
So far, I’ve have my iPhone sending MMS messages with no problems; receiving MMS generates an error.
Here are my MMS settings in case anyone needs it.
