    Showing TFW on the main screen is an iPhone thing. Android phones don't display this.

    There is no breakdown of cellular data vs WiFi data use shown in the individual apps. Only the data use totals in Networks. Not sure if there are 3rd party apps that can do this.

    Your Mom should really like the HD Voice feature that will come with activation of the later model phones. Only works (so far) when calling to other Verizon based phones though. Yes, you can turn...

    Just because a carrier CAN run on a certain LTE band does not mean that they DO in certain areas. AT&T needs B12 and B17. T-Mobile needs B4 and B2. Verizon needs B13 and B4.

    Same problem with the lack of US LTE bands. When they use the term "global version" it usually means not in the US. The smaller Chinese manufacturers mostly make phones for China and India. You might...

    That phone does not have the LTE bands for US carriers, so why you only see 3G. I might work on LTE Asia, but not sure what bands Japan and S. Korea use. It has B38,B39,B40,B41

    If the eBay phone will not activate on it's own, needing a SIM swap to operate, that is not a good indication. Activations on the Verizon network need to be done with a valid IMEI from a compatible...

    Problem is "Removed apps and users" is not an app, but an Android reporting utility. The data amount shown used as background varies some by period. A new period is coming up, so I will monitor it...

    The one that's bothering me is "Removed apps and users. It's supposed to indicate data that was used before uninstalling apps or deleting a user, but should roll off once a new data measuring period...

    There is not a lot of information from Google. The comments on the Play Store about that are funny.

    Information is good, like that the Google Messages app had been updated. You just need to be careful to inform that your results with RCS have been on Straight Talk, and not on Tracfone.

    Agree that Tracfone does not seem to have RCS yet, even though the Google Messages app now shows the settings.

    Why do you keep mentioning RCS if only Total Wireless and Straight Talk have it now?...

    Yep, smartphones are largely data devices if used to their full potential. Many users these days have WiFi available at home/work/shopping, so that can take off a big load of data expense. You have...

    Over time I think Android has done a better job of handling background data use, especially Oreo.
    Not sure why you would have excessive use with Chrome. I have background data off with it, and show...

    Carrier hotspot rules have changed in the last few years. What carrier were you on?

    Interesting they just turned data off, instead of the entire service.
    Was there any warning?
    Any idea how much data was used for hotspoting? Was that the only use?
    Moved on to where?

    It is hard to know the reason, unless the mode of operation was known on that phone while in direct AT&T service. WiFi calling, roaming, etc. I thought of putting the AT&T SIM back in and reading...

    You should not even need an account to make a purchase. They will just want the phone number and some payment card info.
