Hi guys so it's definitely Verizon that is blocking the beta from showing up because I like others signed up for Google Fi free trial and took out my Verizon sim and went to Samsung memebers app and it immediately showed up for me. Went and installed the beta on my watch and put my Verizon sim back in! Note this will only work if your phone is unlocked!

My phone is locked to AT&T and I was still able to access the beta

Verizon likes to limit accessibility on their locked phones.

Go Verizon 🙌 👏 not.... what's the point in limiting things like this it, I feel like it would only make things easier for them when the stable roll out comes out cus they've had people testing it already.

Best part is now that I'm using Google fi and I see it actually work pretty well and may actually consider switching. Since I'm still getting good coverage

You should give us an update on your service in the future for the time you use it. Considering switching to Google fi or mint but not sure yet

Sure I can do that. If your phone is unlocked you can start a free 7 day trial with google fi and that what I did!
