    I am planning to buy the 6P and can't decide if I want to use it on Project Fi or Verizon. I get a nice discount on Verizon through work that I would hate to give up. If anyone is familiar with the 6p and Verizon can I just take the sim card from my Samsung phone and cut it down to make it fit the 6p? Will I need to even call Verizon or can I just do the switch myself?

    Just do the switch yourself. That's what I did. I cut my own card down.

    You can also go get a new sim card for free. Mine was pretty old & speed working. Took the 6P in & she gave me a new one no charge. Not sure if they'd charge you if there's not an issue with it, but won't hurt to try if you're not comfortable cutting it. Get the template that's floating around the internet somewhere. I did mine with a quality pair of scissors.

    Ok so lets say I decide to get the new sim right from Verizon, will they charge me an activation fee? My plan is to give my wife my phone (both Samsung) so I am guessing I can just take out her sim card and insert it in my old phone without a problem as well?

    Assuming they both use the same size sim, yeah, it's just a matter of swapping yours or & hers in. We've done this a couple times now. (My wife gets my hand-me-downs too).

    They didn't charge me an activation fee, but I already had the card in my phone. She didn't seem to notice or care that I'd cut my own down. You're results may vary, obviously.

    I was also at a premium retailer & not a Verizon corporate store. Not sure if that matters.

    Ok good. I recently paid off both the phones I am using now and they knocked money off my bill. I don't know if buying a new phone would add the money back to my bill.

    How do you like the 6P? I am coming from the Note series and I am worried that I will miss some of the features the Note has. I am going with the 6P because I may switch to Fi so I think this is the best choice.

    I'm loving it. I'm a bit of an android purist though. I had the S4 and then the Note 4 prior to this (&others before that). I found that I didn't use the s pen very much. Most other things the Note does, you can get apps to do similar things.

    If you buy a phone through them with a device payment plan, it will. The 6P isn't available through Verizon though. Usable on the network, but not sold at their stores/online.

    I really like the one handed operation on the note series, is there an app that will do the same on the 6p?

    Oh... That's a good question. I never got into using that stuff. I believe there are keyboard apps that offer a layout pushed to one side, but I'm not sure about shrinking the whole screen if you like that feature.

    I've got big hands & long fingers. I forget that not everyone does.

    I use both thumbs. Never used any apps that allow one hand use. I also have big hands so the 6P feels small to me.
