I think it might depend on if vzw will allow it to come off the network while on that contract? But I'd buy that in a heartbeat if the deal is real and I could use it on Fi.
You probably can, Verizon phones are not provider locked, you should be able to put in any SIM card.
I personally have a Verizon subscription (the only way to get a decent signal at work where I spend most of my time) and am considering this deal. I would however strongly prefer to order directly from the Google store as I want an unlockable bootloader (I know there is DePixel8, but that's not the same and that loophole could be closed at any time with a security update, just want an unlockable bootloader without any hacks).
But, I might just take the plunge through Verizon, it's a very good price for this phone. Hopefully Google themselves come with some deals as well. Even just $200 off would be enough
