So... Google just announced Project Fi, which looks great. Right now, it only supports the Nexus 6, with the line of reasoning being that there are not many phones with support for all the necessary networks. Comparing the Nexus 6 to the V2 is actually rather favorable in Saygus's favor for network band support, though... so once Google starts opening it up to other devices, why not the V2?
In light of this, I would ask Saygus to please try to work with Google to get the V2 approved and working on this network, which I suspect will mostly involve supporting the SIM on the phone and some things Google does on the back end. In any case, this could bring two great things together.
...not that I expect it to happen quickly... I doubt Saygus heard anything about it before we did, and Google may restrict it to the Nexus 6 for some time... but it's still worth the attempt!
"If I already have a Nexus 6, can I use it with Project Fi?
Yes, you can bring a Nexus 6 you already use to Project Fi. When you sign up, you'll have the option to get a free SIM card shipped to you.
Its not software it looks like a whole new service provider. Anyway were swaying off topic.
Thank you for the retort.In fact I expressed '+1' and Smileys in confirmation with the postings of @porkandbeans and @Boom515.If they have any objection in it I will wholeheartedly withdraw them.I think internet has introduced these shortcuts in order to make communication easier.And in xda even many eminent and well known developers are using them.However if you are feeling any kind of irritation in having used them by me I beg your pardon.And I shall make it a point not to use them in my comments relating to your posts.

As we approach four weeks to ship date without any announcement from carriers about compatibility, without any FCC info, without any info on beta testing, the risk of this being vaporware increases and with that increase, risk of losing the whole $550 outweighs the reward of saving $50-150.
