    I hope so, but definitely not true now... Here in Upstate NY, dropping calls on VZW VoLTE daily. I often have to switch back to CDMA to be able to make a call. Many local VZW friends report the same....

    I've done it at least 6-8 times with success -- never had a failure. So I don't know what to say about your bad luck with it... I've used both the purpose-made cutters (which admittedly are a bit...

    My mom is 90+ and has been on PPC with a Moto W385 flipphone. I got her a $10 Tracfone MyFlip, activated the included SIM, moving her PPC over to it and she's good to go.

    but not all Verizon phones have SIM slots... could be a 3G VZW phone.

    Anyways, I've ported from PagePlus to Vzw prepaid... no problem.

    Sure but it wasn't clear if Dad's phone could support a non-VZW carrier... H2O or Tmo might be good choices if they have suitable phone to use...

    it is usually very difficult to convince a carrier to "swap" numbers. However in your case, you should be able to do the "prepaid two-step". Port out your dad's precious number to a 3rd party prepaid...

    so WiFi calling 1) assumes access to Wifi in that building with firewalls open (not true in many situations including our University), 2) leave the building and the call drops -- that's so 1990's......

    in case anyone is interested... I've settled on a Samsung Note 4... $100, 5.7", screen, does VoLTE, has a uSD slot, does MHL video out. (The Note 5 does not have either the uSD slot nor video out).

  13. recs for an inexpensive phablet for VZW?

    I recent "lost" my HTC One so I'd like to get a replacement.

    It should be cheap (used) $100 or less, with a large screen (~5"), micro SD slot, good video out (easy to HDMI) and support VoLTE on...

    Sure, its just that Verizon *used to be* the clear winner around here with great coverage indoors and outdoors. Now, not so much. Probably still better than Tmo and Sprint, but AT&T is better than...

    I believe VZW is doing a promo now: $45 (autopay) gets you 15GB... not sure that they are raising prices exactly... more of a playing around with different options... (like no rollover anymore).

    I think that's the point, customers need to be notified. Customers shouldn't have to ask the utilities every few months "Is anything going to change that would impact me?"

    I agree -- our main issue with it so far is that it takes far longer to boot up than an old 2G/3G flipphone. Otherwise can't be beat for as little as $10...

    ok, but I've actually switched BACK from VoLTE to CDMA because only CDMA gives me reliable service in my area -- VoLTE keeps dropping calls daily.
