    The old "single bucket" feature phones kept track of the "Units" internally, but that was changed to server tracking with the 3 bucket system. I guess there could be an app to act like the Android My...

    How did you get the My Boost app? From the Play Store or on a new Boost phone?

    On many Android phones there used to be a setting for rejecting calls from anyone not on your contact list. Not sure...

    Unlimited monthly plans are separate from paygo plans. Service time will get extended, but the monthly plan values will not add to your existing buckets. Paygo buckets get set aside when you go on a...

    Old 3G phones will definitely not work when Verizon shuts down CDMA later in the year. Neither will some 4G LTE phones without VoLTE.

    There is a discussion about the new LG Classic Flip here:...

    The MyFlip is available from sellers like Walmart and Best buy. Get a Tracfone branded one. Do NOT get a Simple Mobile one.

    If you mean calling a phone with land line or VoIP service (like a business), it is not going to have HD Voice. Requires a VoLTE connection on both ends.

    I seem to remember that having a Samsung Account was optional on Samsung phones. Would think you could remove one in Settings > Accounts.

    Thank you, that seems to put the defective phone question to rest! It looks like Verizon decommissioned/reconfigured the tower you were getting signal from before. I doubt anyone connected with...

    Makes sense why AT&T would be poor, as there is only 1 tower which is on Hwy 5. T-Mobile shows poor on their coverage map, even though there are 3 towers on Hwy 5.

    Yep, Verizon has been changing the tower configurations. The towers in the OP's area mostly show Band 2, which is not the best for range.

    There are still some ASOP apps, but the question is can they be side load installed as APKs?. There is a file manager on this phone that states it can see all storage areas.

    Are you north or south of MD Hwy 5? Verizon towers are all north of there and would be mostly out of range. You ZIP code on Verizon shows south of Hwy 5.

    Old phone is not using HD Voice, as it likely does not run on VoLTE. Is that toggled on in the Phone Info menu, as it shows with the E5? VoLTE call reception can be better than CDMA (1xRTT) voice,...

    I would say "must redeem airtime cards during no fewer than 12 months of service". Point is they want you to buy more airtime after the "bonus" bundle talk minutes are used up. It is legalese...

    SIMS can go bad on their own. The erratic nature does seem to point to a tower signal problem. If there are no checking methods at home, you could take the phone to another location a few miles away....
