You’ll receive your billing statement via email 2 days after the end of each billing cycle. You can see the statement in the Google Fi app or on the website as soon as the billing cycle ends. Use this page to understand the different sections of your billing statement:
Previous balance & payments
Standard monthly charges
If you're on the Simply Unlimited plan or Unlimited Plus plan, you prepay a monthly fee for unlimited calls, texts, and data.
If you use the Flexible plan, you prepay for calls and texts, and you postpay data usage.
For all plans, your monthly charges also include phone subscription and device financing costs.
Other charges & credits
In this section, you’ll see data charges for the last month and charges that are not covered by your monthly plan. See below for details.
Charges for use not covered by your monthly plan
These can include charges for:
- International calls from the U.S. (Included with Unlimited plan to 50+ countries and territories)
- International roaming charges for calls, texts, and data outside the U.S.
You find any referral credits or credits that support added to your account, like if there's an interruption in your service that warranted a credit.
You find a charge for any phone that you enrolled in device protection.
Prorated charges or credits for the Flexible plan
If your service was paused or suspended in the last billing cycle, you’ll see a credit for your calls & texts plan for the length of time your service was inactive. For example, if your service became inactive on June 16 and your billing cycle ends on June 30, you’ll see a calls & texts credit of $10 on your June 30th billing statement.
If your service was reactivated in the last billing cycle after it had been paused or suspended, you’ll see a charge for your calls & texts plan for the length of time it was active. For example, if your service was reactivated on June 16 and your billing cycle ends on June 30, you’ll see a prorated calls & texts charge of $10 on your June 30th billing statement.
Important: If you haven’t resumed service after 90 days, it will automatically turn back on.
Prorated charges when you switch from Simply Unlimited to Unlimited Plus
If you switch in the middle of your billing cycle from Simply Unlimited to Unlimited Plus, you get a prorated charge for the days you used the Unlimited Plus plan.
For example, if you have an individual account and switched on the 15th of your previous billing cycle, you get a prorated charge of $5.
If you have a group plan, you also get prorated charges for other members.
Google Voice credit balance transfer
If you transferred your Google Voice number to Google Fi and you had a credit balance on your Google Voice account, you’ll see that credit transferred to your Google Fi account on your second bill. Learn more about switching from Google Voice to Google Fi.
