    I doubt that phone has access to internal storage using a cable. There is reference to sending pictures to an "Online Album", but that may have been with Altel service only. Can the pictures be sent...

    All you have to do is port your Net10 phone number during an activation of a Tracfone. If the existing phone is a CDMA model (Verizon), you will need the MEID/IMEI number for the port. Not sure if...

    You can reactivate a TF Verizon SIM again now. A SIM replacement is only needed in some cases when the account get's fouled up, and you have to start out clean.

    Very few GSM phones were sold from the beginning of Tracfone branded smartphones. Maybe not more than a handful. More common on some of the other TF companies. The old basic/feature TF branded phones...

    The account will likely transition from a 3G to a 4G Paygo plan when activated. Much the same, with some some per-minute cost differences. Be aware that smartphones do use more data than basic...

    Looks like the FTC and DOJ are not contesting the Verizon purchase of Tracfone. Not sure if this is a totally done deal or not.

    Can you add a $50 one year service in "More for your device" in checkout? This is only offered with Tracfone branded phones, but you said the iPhone was bought from Tracfone. You have to put...

    Agree the TF system thinks the phone is an iPhone 5. The XR may have become paired with the 5's SIM after swapping. You would think that during an activation, providing the IMEI for the XR and new...

    Yes, all phones that ran on Sprint will have to be T-Mobile VoLTE capable. Even some Sprint customers will have to replace their phones when they shut down CDMA. I doubt a Boost non-VoLTE phone can...

    Like @Serial Port mentioned the new phone might still have the APN for Straight Talk, which may be different than for Tracfone. It should be VZWINTERNET for TF Verizon service, not TRACFONE.VZWENTP....

    I don't see that the Moto E 2020 (or any other E model) has a Gyro sensor. The G models mostly do.

    I saw that spec too, but you have to make sure that is what you are getting from where you buy. The generic specs you find are not the same.

    The default carrier for SafeLink is T-Mobile, unless not available in a given area. Verizon would either have to switch all those users over (new phones?), or divest itself of that service. Not sure...

    Hope you are right about Verizon not drastically changing Tracfone service. Eliminating PayGo on Tracfone or Page Plus would kill them off. The other subsidiaries are monthly plans that would not be...
