    I have seen very little about how Verizon feels about their purchase of the Tracfone brands. Remember they bought Yahoo and decided after a year or so that it was not a good buy and sold it off.

    They all used and use some in the 1.9 GHz range. Sprint was weak in low band spectrum and had to use a lot of 1.9GHz. That's why their coverage was poor. The same applied to T-Mobile until they...

    Each purchase of service from Tracfone is independent of what was done previously. You can buy the next service through any of the available avenues.

    I'm still rocking a ZTE Velocity that I got for $30 as a refurb - works great for what I need. I have seen up to about 30 Mbps on it while traveling. I get more like 5-10 at home, which is adequate...

    You don't want anyone from AT&T going in your account. Say they see, "This plan is no longer available" and try to fix that by changing it. There is no way to get this plan back if you lose it.

    iPhones and Google Pixel phones are not limited to one connection because they don't allow carriers to impose that restriction.

    Hotspot is throttled to 5 Mbps on both. If the signal on either is not good enough to get 5 Mbps, it's not going to be a great experience.

    IIRC, T-Mo keeps Sprint's band 25 (1900MHz). Dish has the right to buy Sprint's band 26 (~850MHz) from T-Mo if they offer a price acceptable to T-Mo. There's not much bandwidth in band 26, but every...

    You can do the calls with Wifi, but still only free to US and Canada. Other countries still cost, Wifi or not.
