We've been telling you about Google's new, low-cost wireless plan, Project Fi. It's simple to use, and affordable.

For $20 a month, plus $10 per each 1GB of data that you choose to use, you get unlimited domestic calls and texts, unlimited international text messages, and low-cost international phone calls. It connects to Wi-Fi, or T-Mobile's network, or Sprint's network, whichever is fastest.

The only problem is, it only works on Motorola's Nexus 6 phones. Those phones are pricey, and so are some of the fees you'd end up paying your current carrier to cancel your contract. Google will not pick up that price for you, like some cellphone providers do.

But, there seems to be some good news on this front. Although they weren't unable to use all of Project Fi's features, reporters at Droid Life were able to install Project Fi onto Motorola's Moto X Pure Edition phone.

They were able to make calls, switch between Wi-Fi and T-Mobile, and use the Internet. While that's promising, some Droid Life readers pointed out that they weren't able to connect to Sprint's network when they also installed Project Fi onto the Moto X Pure Edition phone.

(Watch a demonstration of Project Fi on Moto X Pure Edition, below.)
