If I understand correctly if I have a compatible phone it will automatically switch between some major service providers to get the best single?

You might also check the Fi coverage map to see if your area looks better than just Sprint.

Why are Sprint phones not compatible with Fi if Fi phones use sprint towers?
marked this as an answer
Phones that are designed for Fi are compatible with Sprint.
 compatibility checker https://fi.google.com/compatibility
The minimum requirements for Google Fi are Android 7, and the ability to receive LTE Bands 2 & 4.
Or if it is an iPhone it will need to be running iOS 11 or higher. 
The BYOP will only have access to the T-Mobile network.

That was my confusion. If i want to add a BYOP or BYOD that are sprint devices it seems they should be able to access the sprint network through Fi.

Hi themaddarkness00, welcome to the Google Fi User Forum!
Designed for Fi phones have a few features that have to be agreed upon by the manufacturer. For instance, the sim card has multiple virtual sims configured on it (most phones only see the first virtual sim - t-Mobile) and the phone has to have low level access to switch sims automatically (this isn't a normal privilege).
Hope this helps!
