Below is a good review of Googles Project Fi's Cell Plan too. It switches between T-Mobile, Sprint and Wi-Fi. I have Republic Wireless, which is Hybrid calling plan  also and I've found it so useful to use Wi-Fi for calling when the cell signal's weak. If the cell signal is blocked inside a building, or because of weak rural cell coverage, you can still phone or text if you have Wi-Fi.

Definitely so! In fact, reading the online discussion on their forum, it becomes clear that using the data-only SIM disables all normal voice-and-text uses of a phone; if you want to make calls from it, you have to use Google Voice or other app.



I’m really not convinced it’s a great deal—especially for those who have T-Mobile (one of Google’s underlying carriers for this process) since we already get unlimited free data as part of our regular phone plan…and in the same countries as Google’s coverage. Unless, of course, it’s all super high-speed and you spend your vacations watching Netflix…

This plan might be good value for travelers crossing a lot of borders, but those visiting one country will find many cheaper alternatives. In Italy, for instance, €10 will buy you 2Gb of 100 Mbps data, and €20 will buy 5Gb.
