    That's normal for TF.

    Can you call, text, use data. If so all is good.

    As for the Sensa LTE, looks like Huawei didn't enable VoLTE on a lot of phones, including the Honor 5x the Sensa is based...

    They do weird stuff on eBay.

    But I really think that Huawei is an outlier. I think it was supposed to have VoLTE (hence can be activated) and someone screwed up.

    Not that I'd ever buy a Huawei...

    I said new direct from TF (as in the .com website) And specifically said be wary of eBay regardless of seller (or meant to)

    Was the refub on TF's site or just eBay?

    True enough.

    If TF has it new it will be good. And they haven't had refurbs that weren't in a while. I doubt they would now.

    Same for HSN/QVC or major retail (Walmart/Target).

    They wouldn't. But you have to use and keep active, the SIM that comes with the phone (or is officially replaced by TF) or the time won't count for unlocking.

    If you choose "don't know" for carrier and add the airtime and use the SIM that comes with the phone they should.

    Don't activate the BYOP SIM that comes from eBay.

    Could be because it's a prepaid phone that's technically not eligible for use with an MVNO (not properly cleared/unlicked by...

    Not a clue now. Everything I can find online say only 2 countries with Google server and no schedule for rolling out in the US.

    No, I used a prepaid VZW E4 unlocked with a code for over a year on TW (recently switched that line to get VoLTE). Many others used it on various VZW MVNOs.

    It not working is a new development.

    It was something about the Pixel 3 and RCS not working with Messages on TMO because of TMO's implementation of RCS.

    But Messages works with other carrier implementations, like Verizon and AT&T.

    Concur.

    But SIM shouldn't matter on his newer phone. That's what confuses me. His Google account seems to have RCS enabled so it should work with Google's server and the carrier not matter.

    My reading says Google should interoperate with the carrier apps, except maybe TMO.

    But if the device supports the newer Google Messages it should work.

    What messaging app are you using in each of those cases?

    I would expect the Mint SIM to work with the Google Messages app. Anyother app would depends on the carrier.

    It's not carrier dependent. It's Google. That's why it's in the Google Messages app but not other SMS apps.

    RCS is an international standard and should be as interoperable as SMS.
