    Thanks. As I mentioned, that's my only understanding of the benefit of the speed. Was wondering what else I may be missing that makes people so absorbed in it. Many people who don't live in...

    I left my 3G's go even with minutes left. Indefinitely doesn't mean they can't shut it down in someone's area tomorrow. There won't be any advance warning since we've all been warned over the past...

    I agree, that was just my guess. Thought it had to do with someone maybe trying to hi-jack something.

    My experience with PagePlus is they can't directly tell you the imei/sim pairing likely for security reasons. But they will confirm yes or no if you tell them the pairing info you want to confirm. ...

    Must be in the imei that tells the mvno it's a 5G phone and they just automatically don't allow it without knowing that a 5G phone is backwards compatible to LTE. They just need a disclaimer that if...

    As mentioned before TF (your carrier) has absolutely nothing to do with this. For clarity it seems you're just referring to your Rebel as TF which implies TF the carrier is the issue. It's not. ...

    IMHO from what I read, it's premature to get a 5G phone now anyway unless it's one that supports uwb 5G and you live in a city that has that.
    And even uwb is speed the majority of people don't need...

    Any TF company phone with the sim that comes in it should work; as long as the sim is for the network you want. Just do the activate with transfer through Safelink.

    Exactly what I think when a shake my head as people compare speed tests. Only some company transferring and downloading giant data files may really need even uwb. Only the added capacity element...

    Is that exactly what the PP checker says ? Could it be it's not saying the phone can't be activated at all; it's just advising you that it won't have 5G service. Just a guess.
