    I've now got Google Fi on all our phones but one of my sons who has an iPhone is now distraught because his texts are green and not blue. IDK, apparently that's a thing and it matters.

    I did all the things that SoonerBornSoonerBrett listed except I didn't find where to put the personal hotspot apn. Could that be the issue?

    ​​​​​​Configure MMS settings
    1. On your iPhone or iPad, open the Settings app.
    2. Tap Cellular Cellular Data Network.
    3. In the Personal hotspot APN field, enter h2g2-t.
    4. In each of the other 3 APN fields (Cellular data, LTE Setup and MMS), enter h2g2.
    5. In the MMSC field, enter http://m.fi.goog/mms/wapenc.
    6. In the MMS Max Message size field, enter 23456789.
    7. Restart the iPhone.

    I really just need coverage in those areas when I visit family. I'm on Net 10 now and it uses at&t network so I'm ok in those areas. The contact free services tend to use either at&t or Verizons network.

    I've been on Google Fi for a couple of years now, and I like it. It switches between towers for T-Mobile/Sprint and US Cellular, whichever is stronger. It was T-Mobile AND Sprint when I joined, but now the same. I rarely have any issues at all, but you've got to make sure you've got a compatible phone, too. I've always run Pixel phones, so they're no problem. Wife has an iPhone, and there are some quirks there, you've got to set up your messaging for texting a special way, and it can get undone when the phone updates.

    My bill for two of us is usually under $100. $80-90. If we're traveling or away from home for a few days, with a lot of extra data usage, it might jump to $105-110. And one thing I like that it does, it will lock onto "trusted" public Wi-Fi's and put them through a VPN, so it's "safe".

    My only options are AtLink and Verizon. I was on AtLink for 12 years, but ditched them several months ago for Verizon. 10 times higher speed for 33% less money.

    Its mobile. I can take my cube with me if I travel.

    Google Fi. Good? Not good? Pros? Cons?

    Any suggestions other than Google Fi? I'm looking for a new wireless provider bc I don't feel I'm getting my money's worth anymore with Net 10.

    I prefer no contract wireless bc it's easy to jump ship on those instead of being locked into a contract. I mostly need good service in OKC metro but also need coverage in NW OK and SE OK. Don't need international calling. 5G at no additional cost is a plus.

    TIA
