Yes. But, you will only get T-mobile service, no sprint, no US Cellular.  However, on latest Manjaro Phosh and Mobian calls, sms text, and data work. MMS is still a work in progress.

Today I have in the top right "Google Fi" but cannot make calls,
How do I activate the service?

So, the way I did it, was to have a phone with the fi app activate it, and just swap the sim to the pinephone. but have not been successful to activate the sim without that app. I even called in and they all say to use the app.
