    Have you actually tried this? You need to be both WiFi and Bluetooth connected. It will not deal with MMS messages. "You must link your Android phone to your PC through Your Phone app." Huh? It's...

    Yes, locked Verizon prepaid phones are too difficult to deal with. The lock down started with the Moto G4 Play about 3 years ago. 3rd party unlock codes did work on those, but there was no GSM option...

    With "Messages for web", the computer acts like a remote terminal of the phone. It does need to connect to the phone using WiFi or cell data. Same as an MMS message and the new RCS Chat.

    Yes, VZWINTERNET is the default APN in Tracfone service. Must have changed by using a GSM SIM, maybe if the Preferred Network Type was set to Global. Surprised you even have a CDMA only setting in...

    You might have to install the update to see the source. I doubt it came from VZW, as normally they would not know that SIM swapped phone was on their service.

    Are you sure the update came from VZW? Usually Moto phones get these directly from Motorola Mobility.

    It is because it's a prepaid phone without carrier unlocking, but the 3rd party unlock codes used to counter that. Apparently there is now a further probe by the network to see if the account/SIM...

    Yes, SIM swaps can be detected on the Verizon network. Seems to be selective though. Happens often on Page Plus, and may on Straight Talk. The difference here is the swaps were not denied before. Not...

    Google is trying it out with some carriers in Europe. That would have to go well before they attempt to implement in the US. May also be why they are delaying the OS API release for other app access.

    Google has stated they will not mess with carrier implemented RCS, so I think that's what we are seeing. Not sure who is controlling this though, especially communication issues between carriers.

    Thought that VZWINTERNET was the default on Tracfone, but have seen TRACFONE.VZWENTP used on Net10 and Straight Talk. I was issued VZWINTERNET on my TF BYOP.

    I am leaning toward some phones not being RCS capable. My TF/T-Mo Alcatel Raven has the latest apps, but continues to not connect.

    I don't think anything but Google Messages will work with generic RCS. Samsung Messages was supposed to, but some have reported it does not. Some low end phones may never work.

    The Fiesta 2 may not be an RCS compatible device. Mint Mobile may not be able to pass through RCS on the T-Mobile network. Lotsa variables here.

    Keep in mind that cv91913 is using the T-Mobile network for these tests. My tests are a bit different using the Verizon network.
