    New Google Fi Nexus 6 owner..

    Came from an overpriced Iphone 6 on Verizon...

    Love the phone.. Just need to learn some things about it maybe you folks can help me..

    First thing .. The volume/power button .. Any way to disable or at least turn off the volume buttons while its locked?

    Also it does something strange, when its in my car and I turn it to landscape mode it locks??

    Overall love the phone.. and PS - Google FI - NO problemos ... Fast, Clear... Love it... and my 40/mo bill for all in...

    Not many of us here on Fi so you may not get a lot of response, I can say that on my N6 my phone does not lock when rotated. As far as volume lock there may be some apps for that

    Not sure what's the purpose of locking the volume buttons. They don't do anything already when the phone is locked. Unless there is an audio playing, that then controls volume.

    Unless there's an app for it, you cannot disable the volume buttons when the phone is locked.

    what are the volume buttons doings when the phone is locked that you are concerned about?

    and i am sure putertech meant your not seeing a lot of responses because your title is just new project fi nexus 6 owner but does not mention questions so if people do not care about fi they won't click.

    is it plugged into your car when it is locked? perhaps it is trying to access android auto

    I switched from Verizon to Google Fi ~ Nexus 6 about 8 days ago. I continue to be amazed by Fi. The Nexus 6... as a 'phone' it's the best I've ever had. Phone calls and txt msgs work everywhere. There were two places where my Verizon service basically didn't work, my girlfriends house and at locations in the building where I work. Fi / Nexus work perfectly in each of my previous 'dead spots'.

    Each of my Verizon 'dead spots' have Wifi, the nexus 6 receives a decent 'cell data signal' with WiFi turned off (on the Nexus). I'll have to test more but... with the WiFi on (on phone)... At my previous 'dead spots', now I can text no problem! Texting a pic completes really fast... When I talk to people, they tell me I sound perfect, no interference, described by one friend sounds like a 'digital signal'.. Anyway, Verizon has served me so well for so long, I know they've had the best coverage but.. (in Saint Louis, Mo. area) Fi blows Verizon away and my bill will be going from over $68 a month (unlimited talk and text, 1GB data) to around $30 a month (depending on how much data I use (Fi = unlimited talk and text, approx 1 cent per MG))! I only use about 500MG a month so my Fi bill will be something like $25 / $27 a month. (I bought the Nexus outright)

    I have to say I hated the white 'girl case' that came with it, I replaced it with a UAG. Much better grip, not constantly / accidentally pushing the unlock screen / volume buttons now, oh yes, the phone 'presents' much better with the UAG too

    Still like your project fi service? I just got my invite today. Considering cancelling my Verizon service and switching over.

    Right now I have the 10gb for $80, and unlimited talk & Txt for $15.
    So, that's $95 per month.
    It doesn't appear that Fi will be much cheaper for me.

    Applied for fi to try out with my nexus 6. Not using it much anymore and will keep my account with att but wanted to get another line to try out on fi.

    Have not heard a thing.

    I haven't found very clear information on cancelling Verizon service on the edge program. It looks like I can cancel and just pay off the phone or continue paying monthly. But in my account it says I signed two agreements. An edge agreement and a customer agreement. So I'm not sure if I can cancel and try out project fi.

    I just ordered my nexus 6 and Fi SIM card. I couldn't pass after the price drop. I hope I like it. Moving up from the Nexus 5; my favorite phone.

    I would keep your existing service and if you just want to test out Fi, get a free google voice numer to test with Fi.

    Then why did you make your subject of your post all about your carrier?
