Transfer Google Fi service to a new device

If you’d like to use a different phone, you can add it to your Google Fi account. Your service continues on your new phone and you keep the same phone number. 

Your previous phone still shows up on your account as an inactive device. You can continue to use it with a data-only SIM.
