    That's what I suspected. The information originally on the TFG website made it sound like it would somehow allow 4G phones without flashing. This is just one more reason not to trust TFG until they get their act together.

    Used a flashing service tfg listed on their site and it worked but it was a hassle. Phone works but data is slower than normal.

    So will now look for regular 3g phones to use on tfg.

    So far so good with low usage data plans.

    Still waiting for better pricing on high usage plans and 4g/lte phones.

    According to the Page Plus website, they have lowered the data overage to 10 cents/mb on "The 12".

    Anybody else notice that it seems like ACRS ditched TFG? I don't see that listed on ACRS's site and they had a URL direct for TFG that is now dead. Seems like they're now pushing NextG instead.

    Yeah, ACRS had trouble convincing TFG to loosen up a little so they are now going more with next G. TFG really has nothing to offer on the higher end plans. Their $6 pseudo Ting plans are interesting though. But even Verizon prepaid gives you 2GB of data for $70 on their unlimited plans. Why use TFG if they give less. The only area where they beat Verizon prepaid on that plan is that you can byod a lot more different phones then Verizon prepaid can.

    What really confuses me is the pricing on their data packs. Buy 75 MB and save negative fifty cents, buy 150 MB and save negative $1. Buy 500 MB and get that bulk rate discount down to the same buying 1 MB ad hoc.

    TFG is an excellent value for low data users. I normally use less than 100 MB per month of 3G data. Why would I want to pay $70 per month for 2 GB of data? I can pay less than $20/mo with talk for good.

    I also fall into a low usage category where I can get by with spending less than the Page Plus Talk and Text 1200 plan, but the main question I have is if catering to low-profit users like myself is a long-term sustainable business plan. Whenever I read one of the stories where someone spent less than $25 with TalkForGood and called customer service multiple times I question how they're turning a reasonable profit and giving money to charity. Since I want my phone provider to be around for at least a few years, I still shy away from TalkForGood primarily because alternate providers like Page Plus or Next G seem to be targeting a higher-profit market.
