**** Main features ****
* Dialer code access for Google Fi (formerly Project Fi) users using official devices allowing for a number of useful functions, such as temporarily changing networks
** NOTE: These functions are only useful for Google Fi users on supported devices - not all devices support these functions!
** Access can be through the main app, notification, widgets, broadcast tile or launcher shortcuts (if supported)
** Codes get stored and the dialer opens, allowing users to long-press and select Paste to initiate the process - the Google Fi app then needs to complete it
** For those needing assistance, enabling Accessibility services allows the code to paste automatically
** For those using Fialer, the dialer no longer needs to open to send dialer codes!
** Can also opt to simply copy the codes

* Widgets, notification, tile, and shortcuts can all be configured and customized
** Larger widget with 2-4 buttons, smaller widget with no buttons
** Information displayed as well as actions on click can be customized
** Notification to switch to preferred carrier when not currently on it
** Android 8+ requires an optional background service to keep information displayed accurate

* Connection history
** Filterable and searchable list of connection changes
** Options for adding regularly timed current connection status entries
** Contains information on mobile and wifi connection, as well as location if enabled and permitted
** Starting with Android 8+ connection tracking requires an optional background service

** Triggers are simply sent without any further interaction needed

This app can be useful on any supported device, but it is specifically designed for Google Fi users and official Google Fi devices. At its core this app is a slightly automated assistant for utilizing Google Fi-relevant dialer codes. These codes are typically used when there is a preference for one service over another. It should also be noted that these dialer codes are not officially supported by Google Fi, so use with caution. The dialer codes included in this app will be disabled if you don't have the main Google Fi app installed - that is the app that listens for the dialer codes, so they are useless without it.

It also shows connection information, which can include the name of the currently connected provider based on either sim or network, as well as connection type, tower GCI, EARFCN if available, signal strength (dBm), LTE band if applicable, wifi SSID, wifi channel/frequency, and wifi signal type (dBm).

Read phone state privileges are asked for one reason:
* Grants access to current mobile connection information like type of network (3G, 4G, etc.)

Location privileges are asked for a number of reasons:
* Provides location data for History entries
* Grants access to current mobile connection information such as GCI and LTE band
* Grants access to current wifi information for Android 8.1+

Storage privileges are asked for one reason:
* Allows for storing and sending of current History and Stats info

Changelogs for the various versions of the app can also be found within the app itself!
 

App ChangeLog

  • ** Version 5.4 **
  • - Broke out both widgets Wifi info into separate settings for strength, speed, frequency, and channel
  • - Did the same for the notification, but also added an option for displaying Wifi IP address
  • - Added option for notification to not show when on wifi
  • - Swipe-to-delete for main app buttons now has confirmation dialog to undo
  • - Minor edits to reflect Project/Google Fi name change
  • - Minor edits and fixes based on developer console feedback

  1. Tambe Barsbay-avatar

    I've been using this as my Fi utility app for a long time. Today's update added a notification option for when you're not on your preferred carrier. I'm actually obsessed with how, for some reason, my phone will switch to Sprint soon after I arrive home, almost every time, even though T-Mobile is better there. So at home I'm always manually checking my network to make sure I'm on T-Mobile. But it never occurred to me to have this as a special notification. GREAT UPDATE GUY(S)!!!

  2. Matthew Roides-avatar

    Love(d) this app! However I've noticed the last couple weeks/month or so, the widget doesn't always show stats, and in the app the stats have become wonky lately. Last 24hrs I have been on 4g TMobile as well as unknown 100%. The last two month stats, I've been on sprint -87.8% (yes negative), and not connected 163.9%. I can still switch which is great, but the stats were fun to look at and keep track of my service

  3. Robert Meyer-avatar

    Absolute necessity if you have a Google Fi phone capable of network switching. Normally, the phone auto handles which network is used but FiSwitch lets you force a network switch if necessary. One of the better paid apps. Thanks! 👍

  4. Ali Raza-avatar

    Worked great on my original Google Pixel phone. Was able to force switch carriers with zero issues. I now have a OnePlus 7t and unfortunately cannot force switch to a different carrier using FiSwitch on this phone. 5 star app but giving 1 star due to it being useless to me at the moment.

  5. Austin Hider-avatar

    If you have Google Fi this app is awesome! I can switch carriers from the widget or open the app. It gives lots of nifty stats for your cell connection. Definitely worth it!!

  6. das rockness-avatar

    Recently has been muting my audio or dinging at me every time it senses a Google Fi switch whole on on the phone. Very annoying.

  7. Doug S-avatar

    Update had reset some of the widget settings, but really good and useful overall. A must have for Fi users.

  8. Matt Sasges-avatar

    Can no longer switch carriers which makes this app completely useless now EDIT: Was fixed after a restart.

    Excellent app showing all the connection details I want from a widget plus easily network switching

  10. Glowie Ingress-avatar

    This app saves me when I'm stuck on a low performance tower

  11. Jerle Black-avatar

    Didn't help switch carriers for better coverage.

  12. Thomas Maher-avatar

    Working with the owner of the app to resolve this issue im having.

  13. Keith Ellis-avatar

    Very useful and informative.

  14. Katye Mitchell-avatar

    This app is amazing, especially if you are in an area that has lots of towers by different providers or a rural area where getting connection is difficult. You can control the switching yourself or you can use auto switch which does it for you. The app also provides you a history log of each switch and stats of signal strength, connection and duration for each individual carrier and an overall. The history log and stats are also downloadable.

  15. Jason Mitchell-avatar

    Great app. Easy to use, and handy when traveling to jump between networks and carriers. And the support has been excellent as well. The programmer was kind enough to answer questions about carrier switching, that didn't even apply to his app. But he sure does knowledge anyway!

  16. Skyler P-avatar

    Loved this app for so long but for the past month I haven't been able to switch to any other network option. I keep getting an error and uninstalling/reinstalling didn't help. I reached out to customer service awhile back but no one has responded to me. Really want this to be fixed cause your app was so good to me before :(

  17. Jimmy Reese-avatar

    The app is a God-send when on Google Fi. The widget is great, and the accessibility method works very fast even without root. Root actions are broken atm due to some Android 10 changes - however - when I had issues and emailed the developer, he was very quick to respond and give a fairly detailed explanation! Either way, he has definitely earned the payment for the premium features, whether you use them or not!

  18. Sean Monk-avatar

    I've started getting a second persistent notification after applying the December security patch for pixel 4 XL. I have the regular carrier persistent notification but then randomly I am getting a Fiswitch notification that you normally get when you don't have service, but it's happening while I have service and it has to be manually dismissed before it will go away.

  19. Ryan Nader-avatar

    Used to love this app, a total requirement for pixel users but resently it stopped working. It gives me an error for 0.5 seconds and exits. Not something I want from a PAID app.

  20. Scott Leslie-avatar

    Pixel3 w/ root. Worked great on Android 9. Since updating to Android 10 (still w/ root) the widget & app itself don't work for carrier switching. This functionality was the main reason for using/purchasing app. Will update if functionality returns. Manual entry of dialer codes works.

  21. Steve Turner-avatar

    I've loved this product since I first got my Pixel XL. Support is super fast (and helpful!!!). The app works great on my Pixel 3XL too. Thanks for bringing a great app out! Simple, elegant, functional, and it WORKS!

    App doesn't function in any way, shape, or form on a Fi supported device. Further inspection shows no dialer codes are sent despite being a rooted device. Would have gotten more enjoyment from throwing two dollars in a blender.

  23. Alex Comanescu-avatar

    Works as intended. Some issues still occur, such as autoswitch still randomly pushing Sprint after a few hours, this after the latest system update. Nonetheless, easy to switch back. Great support response

  24. Michael Acosta-avatar

    Just had a trip from NY to Killington, VT. Was having issues and after using FiSwitch I was able to change to a different carrier and get full signal/LTE again. Amazing app and highly recommended, especially for Google Pixel users.

  25. Nigel Chen-avatar

    This app is amazing. My work is in the middle of a huge concrete complex and we get no signal from Tmobile or Sprint. We only get Verizon and AT&T signal because work provided some kind of microcell inside the building. I recently just switched from AT&T to Fi. I know that US Cellular is on the east coast and Fi auto switch never seems to switch to it. So I download this and gave it a try. This morning I forced to US Cellular and now I am getting full 3G signal at -65 dBm. It is no LTE but still with about 2Mb down and 1 up which is good enough to be able to get email and whatsapp messages. Also with a full 3G signal instead of 0 bar LTE, my battery seems to be draining much much slower.

  26. Zach Agnew-avatar

    i have been using this app for over 3 years. in all that time i have been a beta tester for every Android OS, routinely on the latest pixel device. In all that time i have had a grand total of one time this app didn't work as expected. Even then it was solved in under 24 hours! well worth the cost and the speed of responses from the developers.

    Definitely a necessary app if you're using Google Fi. I live in a rural area where sprint service isnt that great, but T Mobile is actually good. For some reason my phone always wants to stay connected to Sprint. It will rarely change to T Mobile. Which bothers me cause i thought it's supposed to seemlessy do that. This app has helped tremendously with switching. Just sucks i have to manually do this all the time. Thanks for the awesome app.

    I've been using this app for a couple months now. I bounce back and forth between eSIM and SIM because I live in the PNW and use two different carriers. For whatever reason the Fi app itself seems to have some difficulty with my phone but THIS app always fixes it, whatever the issue is or the hang up is. When simply clearing cache doesn't help, try using this app. It's a necessity. Very well done. 👍

  29. Jason Murphy-avatar

    Great app overall. I've used it for years and it has worked seamlessly. Since I upgraded to Android 10.0 root no longer works though . I had to go back to using the accessibility service to switch carriers. This isn't a deal breaker but being able to use root provided a better overall experience. With root enabled it just switches. Without root it opens the dialer and pastes the codes for you. Hopefully there will be an update soon to fix this.

  30. Steven Chene-avatar

    Stopped working on Pixel 3 after January 1, 2020 security update. Update: developer responded quickly. Followed their recommendation to reboot which took care of the problem. Thanks!

  31. Patric Lowery-avatar

    Amazing! I used to work in a place where Fi always wanted to be on Sprint but would then just drop connection all together. This app saved me a lot of headache. I ended up having an issue after resetting my phone and reached out to the developer. They got back to me ASAP and helped with the fix! Can't recommend enough to Fi users.

  32. Ben Fish-avatar

    I have to say this is worth every penny. I live in a rural area and need my pixel 3 to switch constantly between T-Mobile and Sprint. This app so far does the trick every time. Perhaps Google's algorithm would have figured out what I needed eventually, but I need my phone to work currently. I might have cancelled Google fi if it wasn't for this app.

  33. Billy T-avatar

    This is a must have if on Google Fi. Where i live signal can be spotty depending on which carrier the phone is using that being said this app will save your hours of searching up and down for the codes to switch between the carriers. Plus if rooted you wont need to use the phone dialer which makes life easy. Thank you for this app!!!!

  34. Aaron Benton-avatar

    OMG this app is amazing! I have a brand new Pixel 4XL on Android 10, and just switched from Verizon to Google Fi. I was immediately unable to use my phone's hotspot while also being on a call. Fi's support team explained that this is a limitation of some carriers. I never had this problem with Verizon. So, Fi gave me the codes to force switch carriers, but for whatever reason the codes wouldn't work. Luckily I found the FiSwitch app! Amazing how simple it is to use, AND IT WORKS! Thank you!!

  35. Tom Prossima-avatar

    Works great on my Pixel 3. With this app I can fight Fi's insistence on switching to the much weaker Sprint network when the T-Mobile's signal is so much stronger. I also like the way it records network statistics. Even though this is a free app, it's so good that I made a donation to the developer.

  36. Mark Johnson-avatar

    I recently started using a different phone app to help combat spam. The problem is, FiSwitch only works with the standard phone app. Instead of letting me copy the codes so I can open the standard phone app and paste, it instead errors out. It does not give me the option to copy only. So I have to switch default phone apps to make it work, then switch back. Please add an option to copy codes so I can paste them later, after bringing up the correct phone app. Otherwise, very happy with the app.

  37. Lucas Newton-avatar

    Does exactly what it says on the tin with some nice statistics and whatnot available. However, ever since Android 10 the root option doesn't do anything anymore.

  38. Apriarcy-avatar

    I've been on Fi for several years now and my cheap self has just been running the free version of Signal Spy all this time. I'm glad I finally decided to drop the measly $2 for FiSwitch. The customizability of the app and widget is excellent and I'm glad I don't have to see ads in my carrier switching app anymore. I would highly recommend this app to anyone on Google Fi (formerly Project Fi).

  39. Trevor McGrath-avatar

    Definitely worth picking up this app if you're on Fi. Support the dev and get the paid version, too! it works great and has definitely gotten me out of jams when Fi tries to stick me on Sprint long after they should have switched me over to T-Mobile. Also, love having a widget with all the WiFi and network info and signal strengths on it. Very useful!

  40. Brendan Shreve-avatar

    I heard about this app from a friend who was previously on Fi. I switched to Google Fi a few months ago. After switching over, I would occasionally get poor cellular service in very specific areas that I visit frequently. Friend told me to check out FiSwitch, and I'm glad I did. I can now manually switch to networks that works for me in these

  41. Dr Gru-avatar

    nothing special about it, just another way to access the system settings and yes you can't switch to other networks any more!

  42. Cola Sasha-avatar

    Fantastic! We live in a rural area and over the last month both our pixel 2 and 3 have been failing to stay connected to the best local tower, instead connecting to distant tower. Installed the app on both phones, picked the best local provider, and bang! Back to LTE/4G. HEY developer, we move to Spain in three days, can you make the app work there?

  43. Ryan M-avatar

    Although the app wasn't compatible with my phone, the developer was extremely nice and replied fast. I'm going to keep the app because even though it doesn't work on my device, it's worth it for the info it shows you. 10/10, hopefully it'll support unofficial devices in the future!

  44. Troy Finley-avatar

    This app has been fantastic, however I'm not receiving the same error message that Dan Carpenter notes below. I should point out that this has only occurred since installing the beta version of Android Q and may be related to that.

  45. Nick D.-avatar

    Works in some ways. Seems to mess other things up. My phone finally started switching towers after dropping calls, but Google assistant also turned off after each tower switch. Also, my incoming calls started going to voicemail after one ring. Not positive the app caused it, but nothing else was changed. So I have deleted the app, for now.

  46. Jiexi Luan-avatar

    EDIT: Have been supported! Awesome dev :). (Fix is to deny root so that it uses the regular old accessibility method for the time being) Not working on android 10 anymore. I have accessibility on, root granted. Pressing button doesn't even open phone app to auto paste ;(. Will update rating if fixed.

    Lifesaver! I'm traveling in Hungary this week, and somehow Fi defaults to Three UK - where I get a 3G connection with no actual data access at all. Followed all the Fi official troubleshooting steps to no avail, until it occured to me to try FiSwitch. Problem solved by switching manually to T-mobile

    Perfect for carrier identification and selection. Not fully automated but does what it advertises. Negative reviewer mentioned that the app does nothing but in actuality it saves so much time and has a nice widget option. This app fixes a big deficiency in the Fi service. Thanks.

  49. Dan Carpenter-avatar

    ease of use is great. the dialer codes do not show up or even attempt to change carrier. the error i am getting is " current default dialer does not have proper permissions for dialer coses to work". i went into accessibility and gave it permissions for what was available.

  50. Austin Grant-avatar

    This app far exceeded my expectations, and delivers on its functionality. Having the ability to switch networks makes a difference on the data side, slow connection on one, try another.

    App looks very neat and clean, shows a lot of info but its nit switching carrier for me. i'm not using a pixel device or google fi fully compatible device. i'm using oneplus 7 pro. I think this app works only for exclusive Google Fi phones and not others.

  52. David Prestin-avatar

    This app is Essential for Google fi service! Auto switch often won't pick a good carrier and needs to be manually switched to the proper carrier for a great signal. This app makes it easy and gives great info tracking, and it' well maintained by the author!

  53. David Ashwell-avatar

    This app is a must have. I think of it more as a T-Mobile switcher. My Pixel 2 likes to hang onto Sprint's towers, but perfect signal strength with no bandwidth available is the story of Sprint. FiSwitch to T-Mobile and I'm off to the races.

  54. Sean Burton-avatar

    was working great but now I can't manually switch anymore. ivs been stuck on Sprint for days when the strong signal is T-Mobile. edit: using a dialer app other that stock breaks fi switch. I use "should I answer" and its not compatible with fi switch.

  55. Josh Lehan-avatar

    This app is essential for anybody with Google Fi as their cellular service provider. Makes it easy to see which carrier you are on and switch carriers when Fi gets confused or stuck on a carrier that has poor signal in your area.

    The app is still good just no longer works with root in Android 10. You have to long press and paste the dialer code in the dialer. This is essentially the same as free apps. Pixel 2, Android 10, with root privlages

  57. Tom Hoos-avatar

    Excellent support from the dev. Asked me to email and solved my issue within an hour!

  58. A Google user-avatar

    should be preinstalled for Google Fi customers being able to see network stats is great and it's frankly inexcusable that manual network switching functionality isnt provided to users by default if you have Google Fi service, get this app

  59. CJ Gardner-avatar

    I love this app! I even use it on my non project Fi phone just for the basic band information. Cutting over to Fi Network full time with the P3XL in just over a week. Love the app and well worth the buy!

    I can't use Google Fiber without this app, is the perfect companion and will save you a bunch of time without connection. Allowed you to easily switch carriers.

  61. Jacob Warr-avatar

    Ended up refunding. As other people have noted, all the commands from this app are available straight from Google, all this app does is let you select them from a GUI and copy them into your clipboard. This fact should be a little more upfront, but then no one would buy the app.

  62. Jason Lauer-avatar

    This is one of the best app purchases I have ever made! I think it's a must have for any Fi subscriber. The widgets are also useful to display what network I'm currently on. I highly recommend, you will not be disappointed!

    Pretty much worthless. You're basically paying for an app to copy (but not paste) commands that are readily available via Google. Furthermore, carrier switching is not even supported if you do not have a FI certified device (irregardless if you have fi service). Cute interface but entirely unnecessary.

    looked everywhere to determine what is considered a "supported" device. ive got a Huawei Mate 10 Pro... when i try to send a a switch to Sprint, I get the measage "current default dialer doesnt have the proper permissions for dialer codes to work. help me resolve this issue promptly and ill change my review and rating.

    No longer seems to work for much on the Pixel 2XL, only thing that seems to work is sim swap. Part of the issue appears to also be an incompatibility with switch towers on fi at this point, when running Android 10.

    The Author literally spent hours helping me few years ago but I left Googe fi. I'm back and couldn't wait to install his app.

  67. anthony scott-avatar

    Does what it says it does. This app has greatly improved my Fi experience.

    Awesome app! Must have for Fi users! I even use it with other carriers too to use the sweet widget to easily monitor signal strength and wifi info. So well done!

  69. Tim Rainey-avatar

    Reliable and does exactly what its supposed to. One of the major carriers doesnt work very well in part of the city despite having strong signal, so being able to swap is great.

  70. Ben Gotthelf-avatar

    I had some serious issues with Fi and no longer use it, but this app worked really well. No complaints there.

    The app doesn't work on Samsung Note. It does not supports the Samsung dialer and there are no other options Very disappointed.

    A must have tool if you use google FI. I use it if my phone is stuck on a weak tower in the area to force it to use TMobile or Sprint towers on command.

    Great app. I love it! Better than Signal Spy IMO. Hands down it is worth the $2.

  74. Ryan Kneeland-avatar

    A must for Google Fi users. Sometimes Fi will select Sprint in areas deapte worse to no coverage. This app permits fast and easy switching among providers.

  75. Shane Ashby-avatar

    Great app. It just works, which is what it needs to do. Indispensable app for Google Fi, particularly in areas where cell coverage is poor.

    i have samsung a8 2018 and i am using google fi about 8 months. This application gave me permission error for every action. I tried to give permission but I think it only works for google devices.

  77. Shi Fu-avatar

    i was very close to cancelling my Google fi subscription, for some reason stumbled upon this and gave it go... i think i will stick with Fi thanks to you, developer guy. thank you!

  78. Ross Carr-avatar

    Edit: Dev reached out immediately and assisted with fix. Excellent support! Great app. Some functions explicitly blocked in Android Q.

  79. Jack Kitchen-avatar

    i found no instructions on how to use. i have no reason to switch from T-Mobil to Sprint. When i did switch, received a dialer that did nothing. got out of dialer & had never left t-mobil. maybe good app 4 someone with bad coverage; not me.

  80. John Zimmatore-avatar

    Does exactly what it says. i find this invaluable for forcing network changes if necessary and seeing the status of connections

  81. Steven A-avatar

    Developer extremely involved. I'm on Galaxy s8+, and every time i copy and paste a code in it just says could not complete call and nothing happens.

  82. Bryce Miller-avatar

    Unable to make or receive calls after using this app. Had data-only. The app's built-in repair feature seems to have fixed it though.

    Had an issue earlier. Developer was quick to reply to the email. I had to set my default phone app to system default to get the app working.

    US Cellular switch is not working. giving and invalid error. after reviewing the issue this appears to be a provisioning issie woth Fi. not the apps fault.

  85. A Google user-avatar

    Cannot switch carrier manually and log shows no indication of ever switching. Just remains on Sprint...Is this a problem with the app or something in my Fi setup? The refresh/reset Fi setting does nothing either

  86. Eric Moe-avatar

    Fast updates, responsive developer, oh and the app works great too! Fi has its limitations, I think this works great within that

  87. Dave Ingenbohs-avatar

    Absolutely awesome app. Logs my carrier connections and performance data in a beautiful interface. Great job, Dev.

  88. A Google user-avatar

    in less than 30 minutes this app fixed so many issues! should have found this sooner. worth the cost.

  89. Play Acct-avatar

    Doesn't work on the Moto Z3 Play, but I will look it up in the future if I get a compatible phone. OTOH you are such an attentive developer that I decided to buy the app anyways.

  90. William-avatar

    works great, for some reason when i go on vacation project fi wont pick the best signal. so fi switch helps me out woth no reception thanks

  91. Dustin Weaver-avatar

    Awesome job. If you love geeky information this app is a must have with a fi phone. Huge thanks to the developer

    Appreciate the response of the developer explaining why his app doesn't work for me as my phone doesn't support fi switching.

  93. Justin Lemal-avatar

    A must-have for GoggleFi users! I've had Fi since it first launched and this is the first app I install on every phone

  94. No One Know-avatar

    Error message: Google Fi cannot override carriers. - Moto Z4

  95. Tony Godshall-avatar

    doesnt seem able to do anything automatic. signal info is just as good at copy paste to dialer to force connection to a particular underlying carrier

  96. Wally Hass-avatar

    Great app and the developer is very responsive. Highly recommended

  97. Robert-avatar

    Not impressed. It doesn't do anything automatically, basically the same effort as copy pasting the codes myself. Not worth paying for in my opinion.

  98. Jonathan Boler-avatar

    Works really well on my Pixel XL & Pixel 3. Never had a problem with it.

  99. Scott Luke-avatar

    Very good app, definitely very helpful. And Dev is top notch. Well done

    App is great and working well! The new update showing WiFi and the widget is great!
