    Hey Charles,

    I just sent you a PM about a problem I'm having porting in to BLUE after initially being advised by CS that my number was eligible. Now I'm being told both by activation and CS that...

    I ended up buying a cheap used M9 on eBay some months back in order to have at least 1 phone in my possession that has official VoLTE support on AT&T for me to play around with. I can confirm that...

    I realize this is Total Wireless we are talking about, so it's Verizon and thus what I'm about to say might not apply, but my experience with Tracfone-based subbrands on the AT&T side is that when a...

    I doubt it. How would that even work?

    This is one of the reasons why I dislike eSIMs, and will always opt for a real, physical SIM card. The whole point of the physical SIM in the first place...

    If there is a prepaid deal that you want to take advantage of that you can't qualify for unless you are porting a number in, why not just fire up a month of service on something like Red Pocket for...

    So, after a couple of back-and-forths with support, it sounds like annual plan upgrading is actually possible. At first, it didn't sound like it was, based on how this first response I got was...

    I have never had any experience with annual prepaid, only monthly prepaid, so I'll have to take your word for it. (Not that none of the providers I've used offered annual prepaid, but it's never...

    Oh, well, sure: you can always *abandon* your existing plan. :) I mean, even if their system won't let you activate a new plan in its place, you could always port out before the plan is set to...

    Curious if you have tried to ask them whether you can upgrade from Xtreme to something else 6-months-in, even if just to see what they say...I still have not managed to get this question answered.

    As others have said, TF does not allow for international roaming, so the setting will make no difference in your case. The reason the phone gives you that option in the first place is because if you...

    TF. And in this case, BYOP SIMs.

    I have literally never seen a Straight Talk SIM -- either BYOP or otherwise -- with a model # that starts with "ST". I didn't even know that was a thing (I mean,...

    I don't think anybody's main critique is about the expiration of rollover. 30 days is fine. The issue is which bucket (last month's leftovers, or this month's allotment) gets dipped in first.
