    There's two systems...one to place the "order" and activate (either using a SIM card you have on hand or ordering you a new SIM card) and then one to manage the account. The first one requires at...

    The Prepaid Activation Kit used to be a thing on the old billing system. You'd get a code to enter during the setup process (not really sure why other than to add a layer of complexity and prevent...

    The weird thing, doing it with $30 Cricket cards, I was getting tax and E911 added, but anything higher wasn't (which Cricket cards shouldn't anyway, since that's "built in".) I wonder if Target is...

    You're absolutely right that the 10GB plan isn't exactly as competitive anymore. Verizon's deprioritization can be an issue in areas, regardless of LTE or 5G due to limited spectrum (in my area,...

    Just curious, would there be any advantage to activating one of these versus the various T-Mobile plans that are out there?

    Yep, the phone number set up for your account stays, regardless of the plan you're using (you can request a new one if you want or port one in).

    Exactly, it just means less time waiting for things to load, so you might be doing more which would consume more data. Keep in mind, speed tests through Ookla's app (Speedtest) don't count against...

    That is correct - they're both prepaid (postpaid is pages 1, 2, and 4) and unlike AT&T and Verizon, T-Mobile doesn't restrict 5G (or the type of 5G) to certain plans, but some of their marketing and...

    They support 5G (basically the branding/naming text doesn't have it since they were made before 5G, but all T-Mobile plans include access to all aspects of the network).

    As for the heritage plans...

    Yep, you're correct with that—Connect is either $15 or $25 + tax/E911 and it lasts the full month (so the same billing cycle). It's on the same billing system and works the same as the Simply Prepaid...

    Based on this thread, it seems about every month there's a sale and it alternates between $5 off $50 and buy-one-get-one-10%-off. If I'm betting, the next may be early/mid-April and $5 off $50+?
