    Hey, I know this is old, but here's my question:

    My son is on Project Fi w/ his Nexus 5x.
    We want to move him over to our Verizon account, so we need a new sim.
    They say that based off of his IMEI #, his phone is a 3g phone, and won't send us a new sim.

    "Let me pay you guys money," I said.

    But, no dice.

    Is anybody using the 5x still on Verizon? Why won't they activate it?
    What should I do?

    They are full of crap - the Nexus 5X is not a 3G phone, it fully supports LTE and works fine on Verizon. My daughter used hers for quite a while (until she decided she needed an iPhone) on Verizon. They just want to get you to buy a new device and make payments.

    Thanks for the input! Yeah, I put my SIM into my son's Nexus 5x, it worked perfectly. Sigh.

    I am going to use my wife's iphone 6, use that phone's IMEI, get them to send me the SIM, then once I get that SIM activated using the iphone 6, I'll move that SIM into the Nexus 5x.

    That should work, right?

    So, yeah, I did that. Activated it w/ my wife's old iPhone, then put the sim into the 5x. Worked like a charm.
