    So you want to get bombarded with calls every time that song plays somewhere?

    I'm not sure if it applies to what you are trying to do, but one of the unlocking rules is that the phone number of a locked phone can't be changed during the year of waiting to unlock.

    Yes, they limited it to Tracfone branded phones/SIMs a couple of years ago. It is not available for BYOP SIMs. I don't know if a SIM that came with a TF branded phone will work in a BYO phone as a...

    Pretty much yes anywhere in the world with any source of Internet data. The protocol used is known and some places block using it. My club Wifi blocks it. That is probably just a default setting in...

    If that is the concern, then how is imposing MVNO requirements on Verizon and not all telco carriers acceptable. It's not. It's just plain wrong. Government agencies do not establish regulatory price...

    Yes, Verizon is doing fine. They are spectrum constrained for a while until C-band and CBRS come online that will leave T-Mobile with an advantage to grow. Verizon is not sitting idle while they are...

    I get that you have some animosity towards Verizon. What does that have to do with Americal Movil wanting to sell their Tracfcone unit as an ordinary business transaction? This is not a hostile...

    Anyone know how long these things are good for after you buy them? I wouldn't be able to do anything with it until Late December 2021.

    Google Voice will do that as long as you have a source of data - Wifi or cell data. It works just like home anywhere in the world with data. Some places will not send 2FA/verification texts to a GV...

    2000 points will get you three months of free service with 180x3 service units. I like free. I have been able to do this twice, mostly from Spin points. I was lucky and spun 1000 and 2000. That's six...

    Yes it did. Scratch has been replaced with Spin the Wheel. Spun 50 & 10 on two different lines after several days of nothing from Scratch.

    I like my Moto E (2020) a lot for a bargain phone that cost me $40. Nothing about it jumps out and strikes me as cheap. I cannot say the same thing about my Moto E6, though the E6 is adequate. I...
