    Because in the case of AT&T and T-Mobile that was what they agreed to. It was not something that the government required.

    After how that happened in the AT&T/T-Mobile case, other deals in the...

    Moto E6 is the cheapest I can think of. $99 from Moto.

    FWIW, GSM and CDMA are no longer relevant. Both are obsolete. Verizon is turning off what little is left of their CDMA at the end of the...

    Connect to the WiFi name you want to use and that is what it will use.

    If WiFi calling is too hard or you can't get it to work, you can evaluate the T-Mo signal availability other ways.

    SSID is the designation of the name of a WiFi access point. The SSID of your hotspot apparently is Franklin. The docs that came with the hotspot should say what the SSID name and password are. It...

    This from Verizon indicates that it is all of the Tracfone brands.

    In the grand scheme of news this is not huge. I...

    Yeah, I waited more than 6 months. The web form says no because I am already a T-Mo customer. I'm not unless they are counting my free 200 MB a month tablet SIM, which they didn't last time.

    That was not my experience here. There was band 12 here before band 71 was turned on and I got zero T-Mo signal at my house. Since band 71 was turned on last December I get solid, but not fast, T-Mo...

    Visible uses VoLTE for voice just like most of the rest of Verizon. Everything on Visible is LTE only. 1x, CDMA, EvDO will only exist on Verizon until the end of the year. Almost everything on...

    From previous discussions I believe @maverick22 is concerned with South Dallas.

    Yeah, the previous one was a ZTE Coolpad Surf. I heard that the current one is a Franklin model. I tried getting another one and it did not let me. I did not fiddle with it much to see if a different...

    The technology involved is the propagation of radio signals and how they penetrate materials. Lower frequencies have longer range and penetrate materials better than higher frequencies.

    When Verizon extended the 3G shutdown from 1/1/20 to 1/1/21 it was with the caveat that it would only be as-is, where-is, with no guarantee of service.

    Which side is up or down depends on which side of the phone you are looking at. Phones generally have a small molded diagram showing the orientation. On all of the phones I have seen the notched end...

    It could be that he is thinking, "Hey, Vz will pay me $3 billion for my brands that don't have a bright future now that the US market has been reduced to three major carriers."

    Interesting. I did not see that coming.

    Verizon, already #1 in subscriber count, adding 21 million TF subscribers will make it difficult for T-Mo to claim that they are #1 for a long time.

    Unlocked means carrier unlocked so you can use it with any service provider. My year with my E5 isn't up until December so I have not tried it.

    Worst case: abandon the phone when its service runs...

    Now that you have told us what your needs are, I will suggest a HSN or QVC Tracphone bundle. $59 gets you a Moto E6 and a year of TF service with 1,500 units each of talk minutes, texts, and data MB....

    iPhone 8+ does not have band 71 for T-Mobile. Without band 71 T-Mo coverage and building penetration can be poor even in urban areas.

    As of now, T-Mo has put most of their band 71 on 5G. LTE on...

    It's not just you.

    I worked in IT for 30 years and have used GV since it started in 2009 and I still get confused on how to use it sometimes.
