Two weeks after the Lollipop update finally arrived on the Droid Turbo, we're getting another tiny update on top of it from Verizon. The small OTA is hitting Turbos right now bumping the software version ever-so-incrementally from 23.11.38 to 23.11.39.

What happens when you 'pause' Project Fi service?

What happens when you 'pause' Project Fi service?

Project Fi does a few innovative things that set it apart subtly from other carrier offerings, and one of the lesser-advertised features is the ability to "pause" service on a whim without any hoops to jump through.
