    Sometimes I feel I'm eternally tethered to iMessage. Good stuff: it's encrypted end-to-end; I collect payments from friends and neighbors via Apple Pay Cash in iMessage; most of my texting is...

    The cost of WiFi, compared to what it sounded like daily international roaming would cost, in suggesting the OP may already have access to the best arrangement versus trying to figure out access to...

    I wouldn't be surprised if this has something to do with Apple fans' long unfulfilled wish for Apple to launch it's own MVNO-type mobile phone service. Only works with recent iPhones? Check. Runs on...

    It's been my experience, the higher the quality of hotel, the more they charge for WiFi (excluding free WiFi in the lobby, for example). So while you can often find free WiFi at Motel 6, it's unheard...

    What does that $7 per day include? If that included unlimited talk and text (or a large amount of talk and text, especially back to Canada or to Canadian numbers ) and a good amount of data, that...

    Ebay will also alert you to discount codes by email, but the offer is often not mentioned in the subject line, and is sometimes buried in the scroll of the email they do send. The push notification...

    Who is your current provider? You may already be in a good place to start, and will just benefit from the 3UK SIM you plan to buy for your dual-SIM phone.

    I use Tello for my main line on PAYG,...

    You're right. In my case, I was trying to get a really good number in the prized 212 area code settled. Seven dollars was nothing compared to what that number cost to buy. :)

    Try going into Settings on your phone, then General > Profiles. You may have a certificate or two installed there that is competing with the APN settings.

    You're totally right. I was laser focused on the 200 talk minutes. Ugh.
  11. Funny you should say this. Just this week I...

    Funny you should say this. Just this week I started a new FreedomPop line on their Sprint service (so it's real voice and sms, not voip) because of a 99 cents special. I added a bunch of Freedom...

    Right ... they charge for shipping ($7).

    I had the exact same crappy experience with trying to port from VoIP.ms to MintSIM. In my case, the fault was definitely on MintSIM's end. Submitting port in requests are just something they simply...

    It's almost a certainty IMEI's are cross referenced to the retailer selling it. So there's that match. My guess is if you can buy a phone without having the IMEI scanned, it may have been scanned by...

    Good to hear of your success with Consumer Cellular. I have a BlackBerry Passport and was shocked to see when I put in just a random, unactivated Vodafone SIM, the SIM card altered the BlackBerry...

    As others have said, a suspended account is an account that's neither active nor closed. The number cant be ported to protect you from having your number stolen, especially if it had value to you...

    This response is for a Sprint-based example.


    Do you need it to work only in the United States? Internationally? Both? What's the make and model of the handset it'll be in?

    I didn't have a lot...

    I think it uses the number programmed on the SIM card. You can edit your number in Settings, but iOS won't use it. It sends an invisible text message to an activation server which connects the SIM...

    I use the KnowRoaming sticker SIM when abroad. It was a godsend the last time I was in Paris, since my hotel charged the equivalent of $23 US per day for WiFi, and I was almost never in or near the...

    ChatSIM is one of those things that only sounds good on paper. If you think FreedomPop is full of gotchas, try ChatSIM! A typical deal-chaser can get essentially what ChatSIM promises but on a PAYG...
  21. Red Pocket: Is this info posted on reddit correct?

    Yep, the profile is still there on the iPad. In the details for it, it says its for “cellular settings” (ie, the apn settings for fp.com.attz) and “signing certificates” from GoDaddy for FreedomPop.
  22. If I recall correctly, using an iOS device on Red...

    If I recall correctly, using an iOS device on Red Pocket GSM-A requires you to approve a VPN profile to be installed in order for Red Pocket to update the APN. I'll double-check my iPad when I get...

    That's a really good deal. I've used Number Barn ($5 to port, $2 a month to park [any actual usage is extra]) and VOiP.ms (free to port, but you get absolutely no usage without a $25 top-up plus a...

    Is your cell to be used as a hotspot capable of a persistent hotspot signal? Every smartphone I've ever had would automatically shut the hotspot off after a period of no data transfer.
