    After reading around a bit, I'm convinced he needs to update his PRL, so I looked it up on Sprint's website for his phone model. Pretty simple. Now if he can only get my message with the link to that...
  7. Sprint roaming on VZW in Maine having problems

    First ever thread or post in the Sprint sub-forum! This is for a friend (really).

    Wow! $30 for a Samsung J7 (assuming a J7 Crown; wasn't there another earlier version?). Even better than the $45 Target is asking for it. Might make me a Samsung user yet.

    Thanks for the tips!

    So, it's a fax line number that, once ported to wherever you want it, will continue to be rung up by fax machines?

    You didn't exactly waste your money. At the end of the 120 day hitch, when it's time to refill (good to do the day before the listed date), your unused balance will be carried forward. So don't...

    I was just in my local Walmart and checked out the network.

    My Fiesta 2 has single band 2.4 MHz capability, and I detected and selected the SSID "walmart_2.4," and it worked fine.

    I have it on my cheap LG Fiesta 2s. I disabled it, as I can find and connect to available Wi-Fi as needed just fine without it. It had some level of annoying notification going on.
