Google Fi now sells the Pixel 4a on a subscription plan for $9 a month

Google Fi now sells the Pixel 4a on a subscription plan for $9 a month

Enlarge

Google Fi is now offering a new way to buy phones: a subscription plan. Instead of buying a device outright, you can now sign up for a two-year contract, tack a few bucks onto your monthly bill, and get a phone to go with your service plan.

You have one entire device to pick from, the Pixel 4a (not the Pixel 5?). The basic contract is $9 a month for two years ($216 total), which will get you a Pixel 4a (MSRP $349) that is "yours to keep" at the end of the plan. From there, Google imagines you'll keep paying the subscription fee and pick up a new device, with the company proposing that you "upgrade to a new Pixel after 2 years."

There's also an optional "device protection plan" for another $6 a month that Google says will "protect against accidental damage, loss or theft (except in NY), and out-of-warranty mechanical breakdown." That $6 a month won't actually get your phone repaired if something happens, however—there are deductibles on top of that. For the Pixel 4a, Google says it's an extra $49 for a screen replacement, $79 for a mechanical breakdown, and $99 for a theft replacement. Google is primarily pitching that you pick up the service plan with the phone, which works out to $15 a month for two years, a total of ($360).

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
