    Would make sense they'd bake it right in since these phones are launching after the service is up in running, unlike the 6.

    Not know the differences, I flashed the Fi images for the radios mostly. I wasn't sure if the Verizon images were the best so I went with the Fi images

    Since the 6P's are now confirmed shipping, I just signed up for "Fi" - should have my SIM before the phone.
    Now if only TWRP was ported ... Hmmm Mr. Beans!

    OK I have the phone on Project FI activated.. Just popped the sim in on the Nexus 6 waited for it to set up and up and running.. It said my Google Voice number would be active in a few days for calls and text.. I tried a call this morning and it went.. Just waiting on text to kick in..
    My speedtest from home AT&T was far superior BUT I did not notice a difference last night.. So far good on my way to work this morning as I type from the bus..

    And I just got my SIM and the 6p is activated. So far it's kicked vzw for speed. I started a call on home Wi-Fi and then walked around the block no issues.

    In doing comparative speed tests. I'll post results tonight

    Thanks, this is like a geeks playground. Got all kinds of stuff to explore. So far it just works, and better than vzw. They may have more coverage, but I think they're network is saturated where I live.

    I look forward to your speed test results. Are you noticing a difference as far as "call quality"?

    None at all. I did a test call, I started in the house on WiFi and then walked outside and well down the block. Hand-off was seamless and the call sounded great to me and likewise they said they couldn't tell the difference on their end.

    We'll see how well it works in the fringe areas where I ride motorbikes this weekend, that will be the true test for me. Gotta be able to dial 911 if I fall off :eek:

    Thanks for the input. I guess I was just wondering in what context you were referring to with this statement.
    Speed-wise?
