关于「Project Fi需要半年在米国用一次」的疑惑

从听说Project Fi开始,就一直伴随着「半年必须要回米国用一次」的传言,直到我自己搞了一个,虽然长期停机,但是也没听说要求我回到米国用一下的通知邮件,就着评论里馋嘴蜗牛的问题,我也联系了一下Project Fi Live Chat,得到的答复大意如下:

Google没有要求说Fi的用户必须多长时间回国一次,只要你不欠费,你的Fi移动服务就持续有效,并不会因为你长期在国外就停机,但是你在国外无法获得充分的技术支持,而且如果你的国际漫游服务出现什么问题的话,可能还得你本人跑回米国办理……

而根据Fi的ToS来看,Google保留有随时随地停止你的漫游功能的权力(Project Fi reserves the right to deny roaming to any device at any time.),并且Google通过一个自动化系统来判断你是否存在滥用、恶意软件、发送SPAM、骚扰别人,或者不合理网络占用的情况(比如打电话最多只能连续打2个小时),发现这些情况有可能限制或暂停你的Fi服务。

关于「半年」的咨询原文如下供参考(请谅解我的渣英语,hia~hia~):

Michael 11:45 AM
Thanks for contacting Google Support. My name is Michael.

Michael 11:45 AM
How has your day been so far, Benny?

Benny Chen 11:45 AM
Hello Michael

Benny Chen 11:45 AM
I heard someone says I need come back to US every half-year to using my Fi mobile service, but I’m have a long-term oversea job, Will you cancel my service?

Michael 11:46 AM
Well, no, your service will continue as long as it is paid for. Extended periods oversea will not stop it from working. Though you will get little support while out there.

Michael 11:46 AM
I would not recommend using Project Fi if you do not live in the US.

Michael 11:46 AM
What device are you using?

Benny Chen 11:46 AM
I’m use the Nexus 5X

Michael 11:47 AM
Alright. Just curious, seeing a weird device name here. Anyway, your service will be fine, but if your international functionality has any issue, there will not be much we can do. If your international settings get turned off for any reason(accident or what not) you would need to return to the US to even turn them back on.

Michael11:48 AM
It is very risky to use Project Fi abroad for that long.

Benny Chen11:49 AM
Nice. I see. Whenever possible, I will try to return to the US to use my Fi.

Benny Chen 11:49 AM
Thanks for your help!

Michael 11:50 AM
Well, not really what I was saying, you should be ok while there. I am just make sure you are aware of the risks.

Benny Chen 11:51 AM
Yes, I’m clear

Michael 11:51 AM
Alright. =)

          1. 想问个关于停机的问题,停机最多三个月的意思是我必须在停机三月之后付一个月的钱然后才能再停机?

            1. @Well Honey
              你好,是这样的,三个月满期后Fi会自动复机,只要你发现得快,一分钱都不用出就可以继续再停三个月,并不需要你复机使用。
