    Yep, many have not seen much performance gains from "Nation wide" 5G compared to 4G LTE. You have to go to the urban/suburban areas here to see any mmWave 5G on any carrier. I wish Verizon would fix...

    I don't have T-Mobile service, anymore, so not knowing if B71 was an improvement. The coverage was not so good in my area then, and they had not yet activated B71. Others have reported it does...

    Were the reps asking for the IMEI number of the phone? That is the only way they would know it was originally for Verizon service. You should not have to give the IMEI in activating a T-Mobile or...

    They may not allow a phone change on a 2 line Sprint account, without changing over to a T-Mobile account. The Moto G6 is not a good candidate, as it does not have LTE Band 71 for T-Mobile. B71 is...

    Not like that in my area, where Verizon signal has been deteriorating for some time. When the MVNO speed cap was lifted a few years ago, I was getting 40-50 Mbps download, now it is only 1-5....

    Is using a Target Red Card any more secure than any other online purchase? It is a PITA, as it draws from you bank account, and that has to be tracked. Not a big Target fan, and seldom buy from them....

    For the last few years, the PPC CS reps often told you to just swap the SIM to a new phone, instead of doing an "ESN change" to a new SIM. Retail dealers always do this, as it's less work. The IMEI...

    Common to use a BYOP SIM on branded phones to change carriers, if Tracfone will not re-brand it. Unlocking is not much of an issue with the lower priced Phones. Would seem a good idea to save the...

    Glad to hear the LG125DL is functionally acceptable compared to the LG B470. Many who were used to the old basic phones did not take well to the Alcatel models like the MyFlip. How is the call...

    AT&T does not sell the 4052R SmartFlip anymore, but came out with the Cingular Flip IV. These are made by Alcatel and have similar features.

    Phones vary as to what is shown in the dialer menus. Samsung uses their own dialer, while something like a Moto will use the stock Android dialer. If a feature is not provided by the carrier, the...

    Keep in mind that some of the plans listed on the website are stating you only get 2 months discount with Auto-Refill. The ones with a "*" are limited like this.

    Porting to a different carrier takes more time, and from a landline maybe even longer. Like @hpham stated it might be 2-3 days.

    Do NOT tell AT&T anything, or you may loose the phone number. That...
