    I had something similar happen. A few years ago I bought a Bluetooth receiver for my home stereo. I initially tried using one of my old retired phones to send the tunes over Bluetooth. In my case I...

    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 Connected Car plan can only be used in a car. The tablet can be used anywhere. The Connected Car plan is all hotspot data. The tablet plan is limited to 10 GB/mo. of hotspot without hackery.

    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.

    I...

    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...

    I have a TF XT2005DL Moto E6. I just checked with Network Cell Info. It was on band 13. The generic, unlocked Moto E6 has band 13 according to the specs at Moto. Third party site specs are frequently...

    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.

    There is a buy/sell/trade forum on HoFo.

    There is someone selling them on eBay for $29.99 per sim that says 31 sold. Search eBay for "tracfone triple minutes". At that price it would be worth...

    After two years on Sprint with LTE only on 1900 MHz band 25, I can say for sure that 1900 doesn't penetrate inside worth a hoot if you are not close to the cell. 3500 MHz will be worse. However,...

    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....

    I had 23 from the Family Dollar pricing mistake. What year was that? That got me ~six years of Tracfone service for $35. I applied the PINs for fear that they might expire and kept the SIMs. The rest...

    Unless things have changed Visible Moto phones are not locked or otherwise customized. The ZTE Blade phones they sell are sort of an exception to that. They are not locked, but are crippled to only...

    The context of my post is further up the topic. OP-Tippy appeared to be asking about how GV would work without Wifi and cell voice disabled.

    I know on my phone I can't make a GV call with cell...

    The old 3x activation kits did not have T-Mobile SIMs. There may have been a brief period when they included T-Mo in 3x kits before they changed to 1x kits. True about T-Mo SIMs only being valid for...

    There is way to much emphasis on data speed in these surveys and in the minds of cell-geeks enthusiasts. A difference of a couple of percent is meaningless to declare a "Big Winner". Whether where I...

    That's interesting. I just looked at my Moto E5 charging power supply. It says: Model C-P35, 5.2V, 2.0A. My Moto E (2020) is 1A.

    Control of charging is in the phone and it is fairly sophisticated....

    That cable should work fine for any phone. 4 feet would be too short for most of my uses. AFAIK, there is nothing specific about a fast charging cable, just avoid the dollar store ones. You can...

    Probably. I have some from the great Family Dollar windfall from a few years ago, but have not needed to activate one for several years. They did activate and get triple after the new SIMs came out.

    Google Voice can use mobile data as a substitute for Wifi for VOIP. It can also use your cell voice service if you have it and swap in your GV number as the caller ID. You have to have mobile data...

    True, but the capacity loss has been imperceptible to me so I don't worry about it. I have never had a battery in a new phone lose enough capacity to notice before I was ready to retire it. Used...

    Heck yes, I would consider going Verizon or AT&T postpaid with speed throttled to 10 Mbps or so if the price was not much more than Tracfone.

    It's not going to happen.
