    June 2022 service end date is likely well past any possible acquisition activity. I say wait and see what happens in the next 6+ months.

    Tracfone basic/feature phones could roam. I assume they changed that with the smartphones because they were more data capable.

    You should be seeing a network status icon right next to the signal bars.

    Seems American Roaming Network is a hijacking scheme. Their website is insecure. Here is a BBS complaint about them.

    Good it was not a network problem, but just a local glitch in the phone. It is a PITA having to set up the phone after a full reset.

    SIM cards do occasionally go bad. Verizon usually insists you get a new SIM for activations or for re-provisioning an account after a mishap. They can tell remotely which SIM is in which phone.

    VVM works on the network data signal, and not on WiFi. Sounds like you are getting the notification, but not downloading the audio file. Is the data working for other things?

    The Verizon map shows no roaming (Extended 4G LTE) in that area, but there are a number of no service areas. Yes, Tracfone service does not have roaming. Not sure where you are getting that notice...

    Tracfone does not give any information on Visual Voicemail, as it's carrier dependent. You would have to look at Verizon information.

    You seem to be describing Visual Voicemail. How do you access that on this phone? I think Tracfone models use a stand alone app, but some phones (like mine) access in the dialer. Can you hear the...

    Wonder if the inserting then removing the airtime card trick stopped working for smartphones as well. I can't tell, as the special add-ons don't show up with my BYOP smartphone. Last I heard it still...

    Yes, you can have VoLTE without HD Voice on some phones. I think Verizon includes it on all accounts regardless of phone capability.

    They removed the 1 year add-on for BYOP phones a good while ago, so maybe now the single bucket feature phones as well. Looks like no option for you now except the 90 day service standard cards. The...

    Verizon is very conscious of what money they make with various levels of service. #1 is Postpaid, #2 is Prepaid, #3 is everything else. I am surprised they even give us HD Voice.

    I can afford a monthly plan, but don't want one. I like the Tracfone choice of buying what I need when I want to. Have not bought an airtime card in years. The cost of talk minutes is a lot cheaper...

    That article is bunk for transitioning Tracfone users now using other carrier networks. There are reasons they are on those networks, usually reception issues.
