    Not too many Verizon towers lack B13, but they may not use it much. They started using mostly B4/66 around here a couple of years ago and there is a drop in signal strength. B2, B4/66 are higher...

    The Verizon user guide mentions settings for ringtones and notifications, but no detail about how much you can do. Did you tell Alcatel you were asking about the Verizon Go Flip V model? That is a...

    Yes, it gets the vehicle diagnostic information from the OBD-II port. That is also how it's powered for the other functions.

    You are right, the plan is $99 more than the device. Totals $298.98 in checkout. You can buy it without plan, but I don't see the plan listed anywhere else.

    That's weird that Tracfone charges $100, but HSN is $190 for what looks like the same product.
    Looks like it runs on T-Mobile.

    Video and WiFi calling should be grayed out on the PPC phone, but should be available on the Verizon phone if VoLTE is enabled. These are all part of Verizon's "Advanced Calling" package.

    That app does seem to go to the same menu. I thought the *#*#4636#*#* had been wiped out in my Moto after having played with some of the other dialing codes listed for that phone. An article said...

    Funny, I never heard of a derecho while living a number of years in the Chicago and Minneapolis areas. Tornados and big hail were the common threat in MN.

    I would not use the automated activation system with that much existing service at stake. Use chat.

    After enough updates accumulate, I get a notification. That links to the Play Store app where you can see more detail. I assume if you don't do an update, the app stays in the list.

    The term for VoLTE in a Moto phone's Network settings is "Enhanced 4G LTE Mode". They should be familiar with that, but use any of the terms to get it across.

    Don't know if a VZW branded Moto will display the menu either. My only experience is with Samsung VZW branded phones, which did not.

    Here is what my Moto G5 shows, which is on a VZW MVNO. The...

    Not the first time the automated notifications were fouled up. The end of the year would be the shutdown of CDMA. The notice that you could not re-activate if loosing service is the VoLTE requirement.

    As I said before, all phones have to be whitelisted by Verizon to run directly on their service. The Verizon capable phones sold by the MVNOs can't be used, even if unlocked. I don't know of any...

    Confused here....what account is the phone in question on? If PPC, there is no direct VZW involvement. The VoLTE provisioning will come from PPC. Is this a VZW branded phone? If not, VoLTE may be...
