    If I put my project fi sim card in it, will it work? Someone told me that it would, but would only connect with T-mobile and would not switch to WiFi automatically.

    The answer is - you CAN. You won't get the network switching that is a main selling point of Fi, you also won't get support from Fi if you have trouble with the service. Early on there were also reports of people having their account suspended if they used the main SIM in a non-Nexus device for an extended amount of time. I have not verified those reports, nor heard of any happening recently but those reports were on G+ that I have not visited in a few months.

    I also replied to your post on the T-Mobile forum and see that you posted in the device forum.

    Ok, thanks. If anyone knows whether fi would turn off service because of this, let me know.

    Actually I received a confirmation from Google, my service would not be shut off.

    A ProjectFi representative told me that they would not suspend service if you used a non-Nexus or non-Pixel phone, but they would not provide any technical support or help.
