    Thank you, that seems to put the defective phone question to rest! It looks like Verizon decommissioned/reconfigured the tower you were getting signal from before. I doubt anyone connected with...

    Makes sense why AT&T would be poor, as there is only 1 tower which is on Hwy 5. T-Mobile shows poor on their coverage map, even though there are 3 towers on Hwy 5.

    What keeps you from going to...

    The cellmapper app on a phone will limit it's reading to the cell tower you are currently connected, just like the other signal apps. Yes, cellmapper.com is an overview of local towers that is not...

    There are still some ASOP apps, but the question is can they be side load installed as APKs?. There is a file manager on this phone that states it can see all storage areas.

    Are you north or south of MD Hwy 5? Verizon towers are all north of there and would be mostly out of range. You ZIP code on Verizon shows south of Hwy 5.

    Old phone is not using HD Voice, as it likely does not run on VoLTE. Is that toggled on in the Phone Info menu, as it shows with the E5? VoLTE call reception can be better than CDMA (1xRTT) voice,...

    The receiving carrier does need to know the account number and passcode. With Tracfone it is the IMEI number if Tracfone branded, or the last 15 digits of the SIM card if BYOP. Passcode may be any 4...

    I would say "must redeem airtime cards during no fewer than 12 months of service". Point is they want you to buy more airtime after the "bonus" bundle talk minutes are used up. It is legalese...

    The bundle deals are a hook to get you into the Tracfone system. Their assumption is you will use up the bonus talk minutes before the service time runs out. They make their money by selling airtime....

    I don't see any independent app development for AOSP, like there was for Java on the old basic phones. Maybe if AOSP is used enough ongoing? For now, you get what you get from the manufacturer.
