    It was not clear in the beginning that this was a TW branded phone. Should not have needed a TF SIM card to activate. The automated activation system used to ask you if you wanted to re-brand to TF.
  2. Yep, you should not have put that TF SIM card in...

    Yep, you should not have put that TF SIM card in any other phone to activate. The factory supplied SIM is tied to the phone's IMEI. Does the TW phone still work with it's own SIM card, or was it not...

    I stand corrected. You do need data on to see the LTE symbol. VoLTE doesn't care.

    T-Mobile = good features, but often poor signal. AT&T = often good signal, but poor features. Verizon = usually good signal, has HD Voice for everybody.

    Yep, the iPhone X and 11 for B71. Pretty much all models of TMO branded phones have it. I checked with the TMO store, and they said there was no B12 or B71 being used here. They really need the...

    Internet access is the problem here.

    No, Sprint customers will not be actually T-Mobile customers until the infrastructure, accounting, etc. changes have been made. More like the Sprint division of T-Mobile until then. They were talking...

    I only saw that a CPUC lawyer advised that the merger be passed, not that it had actually done so. There is also the Tunney Act court review that seems to have dropped out of sight over a month ago.

    Yes, the libraries are closed anyplace with a lock down. Some Internet would be available, but not much help with an activation, unless some other device (phone, tablet, laptop) could be used. A...

    Sure you can just call the main CS number for adding airtime. A number of years ago that was the only way.

    Everything in California is different, complicated, and often expensive. I don't remember a login for the Lifeline administrator back when dealing with renewal. Got a letter stating I would have to...

    I got the renewal package direct from the state Lifeline administrator. It was snail mailed, and there is no online account you can access there. The Safelink account shows none of this activity,...

    Yes, you can get WiFi calling on Tracfone T-Mobile. HD Voice did not work for me with TF/T-Mobile test calling someone on another MVNO also using T-Mobile. HD Voice does work on TF/VZW to anybody...

    You may not be able to add airtime from the phone though. The MyFlip has no My Account app.

    The $15 plans tend to not have promo codes.

    I would use the online automated system for a simple new activation. It can be done from a written list with a phone call, and that was once the only way. It's easier and more accurate to have the...

    Make sure that "Enhanced 4G LTE Mode" is turned on, so you can make HD Voice (VoLTE) calls. Only works with others who have service on Verizon. With VoLTE, the LTE symbol will stay on in the Status...

    What has the Supreme Court to do with this? The Tunney Act review is in a Federal district court in DC as I remember.

    Renewal was my downfall. That is done with the state's Lifeline department, and not through Safelink. Tried by chat, and it would cut off after a short time. Tried by phone call, and it would not...

    Not a good idea in this case. The active phone is a Tracfone and it's service would be trapped (then lost) without a phone number. Not sure if you can transfer the entire service to Safelink. The...

    The default is usually TMO, but there is a VZW SIM kit that looks like it is applied after the initial activation. Not sure if you can initially activate with VZW.

    The IMEI printed on the small tray can be hard to read, and might require a magnifying glass. It should be listed in the online account for a BYOP, or in the account a CSR can see. May only need the...

    You might find that a lot of business is still open. CA locked down on Thursday, but a really detailed list was not published until Sunday. Almost anywhere that sells food or has a pharmacy is exempt...

    Verizon bought up a number of small carriers back then. Golden State Cellular had it's own network, so there was no new build-out needed by Verizon. TMO will have to put in the infrastructure for...

    I am well north of you in the Grass Valley area. Similar terrain of tall hills and forested. TMO has not expanded coverage here in a good while. I was surprised when they opened a store a couple of...
