    I'm in. I live in Central Jerz, work in North Jersey, constantly roaming the 5 boroughs. I also visit Baltimore and D.C. 4 to 6 times a year.

    If my phone gets here, I should have it for traveling to NY and back.

    Here's another test. This time it's Project Fi against a carrier named C Spire

    @CJM - Thanks, those are encouraging. How are you liking the "Fi" experience ? Is the switching between WiFi and Cell as seamless as they claim ?

    I'll be using my 6P on Project Fi once it arrives. I'll be keeping my GS6 active on Verizon while I determine if Project Fi will suit my needs in Michigan... I can tell you that Fi is going to have to be pretty spectacular to get me to give up Verizon... even if it is about half the price. I would love to be out from under "Big V's" thumb though.

    I like it so far. Switching between cell & WiFi works fine for me. Also noticed that after flashing the Project Fi images I now connect to trusted WiFi automatically.

    And to further test this, I'm going to pause Project Fi services for a few weeks to a month. Just to see how it goes & if switching back is easy.

    OK, Android Build Images... I wonder if that will be necessary with the 5X and 6P or if it's all baked in now.

    I'd imagine it would be baked in. If you look at the images for the 5X it doesn't say it's for Project Fi like it does for the Nexus 6
