    It would be nice, but I wouldn't count on them sending a bunch of $10 and less checks or putting a lot of effort into processing a bunch of ports. If they sent us notice by text or voicemail, many of...

    Also, unless Tru gets VoLTE working with AT&T the SIM will stop working 2/1/22.

    Since Tru stopped selling new activations of the TruSIM a few months ago, I don't think they are interested in...

    I had not noticed since I hardly ever use the TruSIM phone. I got it out of the car to check.

    If the Truphone phone is powered off, VM answers nearly instantly with voice message that "The person...

    Yes. There is one call center crew for all of the Tracfone brands. They probably work one brand at a time and have to be trained for each brand to support.

    First, don't activate it with ST. You can activate it on other Tracfone brands. The cheapest would be Page Plus paygo at $10 every 120 days. Usage is charged at 6/5/5 cents per minute/text/data MB....

    Basically no.

    IIRC, TF has an international add on for $10?

    [Edit] Ninjaed by hpham's better answer. Maybe get a Google Voice number and pay the small fee they charge for international.

    Yes, one tenth the power does not mean one tenth the range. A rough approximation using the inverse square law would be the range would be reduced by about 1/3, or a signal reduced by by a factor of...

    Yes, 200 MB a month for free for life tablet plan. Mine stopped working a couple of months ago. It never worked in my tablet. I had it in the Test Drive hotspot device.

    Happy Thanksgiving all y'all. My pecan pie is done. Just waiting for dinner time.

    I've never had a problem with the cheap cases, but I'm not out with the phone much and don't do rough work. I tried a screen protector on my first touch screen - an iPod Touch. I couldn't stand the...

    I added the subscriber numbers and network used I found a while back. If the numbers are correct there are 31 million total subscribers. Of which 29% are Safelink Lifeline for which that they get...

    Yeah, I was being somewhat sarcastic. I don't hear much about Tracfone stigma anymore, but there is still some out there. Part of the bad rep probably came from them primarily using T-Mobile as the...

    Are you in California? I think the free phone is only a Ca. requirement. I doubt they will do it nationwide.

    The Tracfone name has long reputation of being the first choice for deadbeats and drug dealers. I've thought that Verizon might want to kill that name.

    I disagree. In the context of selecting a phone to work on a carrier, CDMA and GSM are completely irrelevant. Even in the time that all voice and text on Verizon and Sprint was CDMA you had to find...

    Keep in mind that about half of that 20 million Tracfone customers are on Safelink Lifeline. They get paid $9.25 a month for each Lifeline subscriber and have to provide a free phone. There's not...

    I agree completely that three years is plenty. I am not one of those that thinks that a free market economy is evil.

    Yeah, I've been doing a new Tracfone HSN bundle each year. It's cheaper than buying service time and service units. You can get a phone that is much better than an old Moto G for $60.

    I was...

    It will be interesting to see how Verizon goes about this. Will they continue having unique Tracfone by Verizon phone models that are locked to use only on Tracfone brands for a year? I bet they can...

    I also prefer this type of case. The disadvantage is that they are heavy. Hybrid holster case is what you need to search for. There will be hundreds of them on Amazon or eBay. Some slide in. Some...

    Run the battery down to ~20% and recharge a couple of times and see what it says. Lithium batteries don't reach their full capacity until they are cycled a few times. Cycling will also recalibrate...

    Non-Verizon-compatible (or non AT&T compatible, or non-T-Mobile compatible) about sums it up. Referring to phones as GSM or CDMA is no longer relevant to if a phone can be used with a carrier.

    All well and good, but will they allow new activations that use AT&T and T-Mo? Also, isn't maintaining existing MVNO agreements only for three years?

    I expect Verizon will game this to the max....

    Yes, and the additional amount of data used by a speed test on fast 5G may not be trivial. I saw someone report that they used almost a gigabyte on a 5G speed test. Don't want to do that with...
