    RG58 cable is not very good at cell frequencies vs SC400 or LMR400 except in short runs of a few feet. It would have much more signal loss.

    They cared enough to start a service and structure pricing that was affordable at a time when your only other choice was expensive carrier postpaid plans. It is still a good deal if you don't need...

    The terms of service for the Mobley plan did not restrict it from being used in something other than a Mobiey. They can change the TOS anytime they want to, but these are postpaid plans that they...

    Activating a new SIM is what used to get VoLTE provisioned on a line. You can transfer your existing number and balances with the new SIM activation. You should not have to buy any new service.

    What's the problem? The congress does not have any business getting involved in free market commodity pricing. We're not going back to re-regulating phone service. It's also pointless to get involved...

    I also have an E (2020). The $17 difference from an E6 would be worth it to me for the improved performance, not to mention the bundled time and units. Also to not be concerned if a Total Wireless...

    You need to buy service to activate a SIM. $10 is the minimum service "card" you can buy for Tracfone. That denomination is only found on the Tracfone website.

    I also have a Moto E. To differentiate it some refer to it as Moto E (2020). It's not the same as an E6. It's slightly larger. The battery is not removable. It's noticeably a bit faster than an E6....
