    Well, FWIW if all the state AG’s settled that way it would be a fine outcome. Coverage is a good thing, and would make the new company have a “Truly Nationwide” network.

    I can't comment on the Basic Plan and throttling, but i can offer the data point that I have postpaid phones on both Verizon and T-Mobile, and work in mid-town. Generally, Verizon still works in...

    If you've got to buy at least a $19 plan from Tracfone to get that phone, you can get a brand new one from Page Plus for $19.99. I realize you may be thinking of selling the airtime from Tracfone,...

    Just "upgraded" my mother-in-law's phone to the MyFlip. I ordered it from PP a couple of months ago, but we were busy with other stuff. The process went exactly as stated above -- chat asked for...

    That second phone is network locked to AT&T -- you can use a US-based AT&T MVNO's SIM in it, but not a non-US carrier's SIM (or a non-AT&T based US carrier).

    Truephone doesn't use AT&T SIM cards,...

    There is a 4G standard plan. It's 6 cents a minute, regardless of which denomination PIN you use, so more expensive per minute for $50/$80 PINs, and less expensive per minute for $10/$25 PINs. ...

    Sorry, I may not be following your comment here, but I think what they are saying is that if you DON'T USE the new SIM, the 12-month clock for the unlock may not be triggered and the advanced calling...

    MFBI stands for Multi Frequency Band Indicator -- some LTE bands are super sets of the others. For example, Band 25 is a superset of Band 2 -- Band 25 has 5 mhz extra on the top end compared to...

    Do your free voice lines have throttled hotspot service (e.g., 3G hotspot)? The iPad and hotspots are identified as mobile broadband/hotspot devices, which explains why the iPad would be similarly...

    Boz,

    Yeah, that link was circular -- so I used Google to find their roaming page. I have made the assumption they intended to link to the international roaming page, not the paygo page: ...

    Verizon cdma phones aren’t locked. So try the Verizon MVNOs like page plus, who I believe can still activate 3G phones. Check the ESN there first, as their $12 plan is perfect for a little throwback...

    It's really surprising to me that they seem to have rolled it out and nobody has yet activated. Not just here, really anywhere... Heck one of the people in my neighborhood posted about it on...

    Well, that's actually better that they do push from Apple's servers rather than having to do the silly Sprint codes that pull from the network.

    Are you up and running now?

    Not sure if you got this sorted out but if you’re connecting to Sprint as primary, sometimes you have to dial some keypad combo to trigger an activation settings update. I forget the Sprint combo but...

    You could do that, but if you’re really using as a home phone replacement, why not port to GV and get an Obi 200 device instead of using an old cell phone for $40-50 and just plug your existing home...

    I wasn’t sure if you got the answer to the Wi-Fi not incurring roaming cost question from few posts back, but Wi-Fi is billed as if made domestically, regardless of where you are when you make the...

    It would seem that Ultra $3 includes Wi-Fi calling features. So assuming you have Wo-Fi where you’ll use it, that would likely be your cheapest option. You’ll get 30 minutes/texts a month, then you...

    They clearly stated to the FCC and DOJ that they wouldn’t charge extra for 5G, and they wouldn’t raise plan prices for a period of time (3 years).

    Since you need AT&T, your options for cheap preloaded SIMs right now are basically:
    - H2O ($11 for one month or $30 for 2 months on their $30 plan),
    - RedPocket ($40-45 for 3 months of service...
  23. If you have international guests for a month or...

    If you have international guests for a month or less, I would recommend a preloaded SIM from ebay. They are $10-15 or so, and can have 2-8GB of data. You can find both T-Mobile and AT&T MVNOs.

    My experience is that Verizon will activate most modern Sprint phones, which should cover these devices. But they must be unlocked, as noted above. The quickest way to check the iPhones is to connect...

    I couldn’t agree with you more, BUT that price should be transparent and include the total price. That should also include the mandatory fees.
