Trade in or upgrade your phone

If you want to trade your current phone for a Fi phone, or upgrade your Fi phone to the newest model,use the Fi trade-in program.

Learn how to trade in or upgrade your phone with a step-by-step guide.

  1.  Get an estimate for your phone. 
    • If you're new to Fi, you can sign up and buy a new Fi phone after getting your estimate.
    • If you're already a Fi subscriber, sign in to
  2. Back up your data. Make sure to reset your phone to get the full trade-in amount.
  3. After you get your trade-in kit, you have 30 days to send us your old phone.
    • If you pre-order a device, you have up to 30 days from when your new phone is delivered.
  4. Check the status of your trade-in in your Fi account, under Manage Plan and then Devices.

You can trade in one phone for each Fi order you place. After we get your phone, we'll verify the trade-in value and send an email with details on when to expect a refund or account credit. If you're financing your new device, you'll get an account credit. If you're paying for your new device in full, you'll get a refund up to the cost of your device purchase. Any additional trade value will be issued as a credit.

To trade in a phone you're currently financing, you have to pay off your remaining balance before you can start the trade-in process.

If your phone has Google Fi device protection, once your trade-in is done, coverage should cancel automatically.
