    Yes, I don't wait until the last day either. I look at my account on the website, see what's shown as the end of service date (whatever they call it), and refill the day before. It's just become...

    Wasn't it talked about here, back when TF acquired PPC (2013?) that it was done because TF could then more fully access VZW's LTE network (or something like that), and because PPC already had those...

    "Total" has been accounted for. That just leaves Straight Talk to be tweaked. Walmart would be in on that.

    First of all, PPC refills are for 120 days, not 90. I haven't yet taken the time to analyze the rest of the problem. Any additions would extend the service time another 120 days from time of...

    My concern was that, if on AT&T, whether the infamous whitelist would have to be considered with regard to the phone used. Maybe the "BTN" service has its own allowances since that's kind of a...

    fstuff, let's shine some light on your Boost Mobile service.

    When Sprint was taken over by T-Mobile, most of the Sprint customers and traffic were too. But later it was heard that Boost was...

    I would agree in principle that this whole whitelist compliance thing is complete bunk, as far as the technical aspect goes. The phone makers make their devices to comply with things of a certain...

    ^^^Chances are the S7 indeed does not have Band 71 for T-Mobile network (too old). I'm not 100% sure, but in the T-Mobile realm certainly their branded phones could do 4G LTE before they started to...

    Well, yeah, that would be the functional definition of "having" Google Voice. People call it (your GV number) and it relays the call to wherever else you indicate for it to (either using the...

    Being nosy here in asking: Why would you want to give up your GV service by moving (porting) the number away to some other service (TF), instead of just forwarding calls made to it to whatever new...

    I just did my first ever $1 Legacy PAYGO Gold Rewards refill on the T-Mo website with a credit card ($0.12 added as non-itemized taxes or other fees). Decided to go this way since I have about $152...

    Unless you set up some sort of cellular booster for that available cell signal, it'll never be better than that. The only alternative is some sort of hardline from a provider - either from the local...

    I can't quite wrap my head around the behavior of the combo of an incoming call to a GV number forwarded to a Call Centric number. Maybe in scenario 1 the CC setup needs to be configured to respond...

    I've never heard of either of those headset brands. For home use you really shouldn't need much in the way of noise suppression in the mic/talk audio; but it should be pleasing to the recipient. Even...
  17. Wow! The Bluetooth Forum! This has got to be fun!

    This is an aspect of HoFo I haven't ventured into yet, and by the looks of things not many are doing/using it anymore.

    But, I had occasion to attempt to revive an old (2009) Plantronics Voyager...

    Another battery waster is the Bluetooth radio. If you're not using it (like for a headset or whatever) be sure it's switched off.

    This gets into the unknown TF cross-company issues of the unlocking feature, and there isn't much to go on here.

    I've heard of this naf guy over at dslReports, but haven't pursued it. I think manual config can be done with the current...

    Isn't it true that the test SIM doesn't have to be activated with any service? If so you could perhaps find a cellular repair shop and ask to borrow a discarded one, or whatever they'd allow you....
