    Can they is not the question. Will they is. They will do what is in their economic interest. They don't have unlimited money to do everything everywhere. Spending massive amounts of money to improve...

    Ok, thanks for the detailed info.

    The net effect is the same though. Verizon plans to have their C-Band substantially deployed by late 2024.

    Do you mean a newly unlocked Tracfone branded phone? All new TF branded phones are locked to TF service for 60 days after activation before they are eligible to be unlocked.

    I'm using an unlocked...

    Verizon cannot fully deploy C-Band until late 2024. Other users are using the spectrum until then. The initial 46 PEAs that were eligible for deployment is all they can do until late 2022 when more,...

    My recollection is that the good HSN Tracfone deals started trickling away when Verizon bought Tracfone. I'm not expecting much going forward. Fortunately I don't need anything.

    You can tell which network version you are on by looking at the APN. The legacy cloud core network APN is: VSBLINTERNET. The new network is something else.

    I am a satisfied Visible user still on...

    Such things seem to exist. Do a web search on "cellular desk phone".

    An alternative would be a cellular Analog Telephone Adapter. The adapter gives you cellular service and had an RJ jack to plug...

    What plan do you have?

    Tracfone did not used to allow hotspotting at all. As best as I can tell, it is only allowed now on the unlimited plans that are $35 a month and up.

    The older 6s may not...

    There is nothing commonsensical about enacting into law mandates that can't be achieved.

    Insulting me for my opinion does nothing to change the fact that what you posted was woefully incomplete...

    The Jan 1, 2023 date was mentioned by Vis as accounts using the legacy cloud network would be allowed to continue at least until then, with no specified hard end date.

    I have not seriously...

    The Moto E6 is not on Visible's compatible phone list even though they used to sell them and they still work. It appears that at some point we will be required to switch to their new network which...

    Not entirely correct.

    The California Zero Emission Vehicle law goes into effect in 2026 with a requirement that 35% of new vehicle sales be ZEV. That increases yearly to 100% in 2035. ZEV can use...

    Make the default ringtone silence. Put a custom ringtone on each contact. That's not too tedious if there are not a lot of contacts. Scammers and others will still be able to leave voicemail unless...

    That is a good idea. I'm a cellular geek so I have tried all three over the years and know what works for me. Verizon is the only one that works for me inside the house.

    At one time I was able to...

    Yeah, it is that way on my Motos. I recently tried the Airplane mode on then turn on Wifi on a friend's Samsung A21 - same thing. I wonder if this changed in some version of Android.

    Oh, you meant problems with discussing at the Google GV forum, not here.

    I have no idea what strategies GV is doing about spam calls. I get so few it doesn't matter.

    My experience has been that I am still getting a few spam calls to my GV number. It seems like more than a year ago, but still does not amount to many.

    I can't think of any reason why discussing...

    Thank you for that info. 2G on T-Mo is not something to count on for reliable cell service.

    Truphone TruSIM is effectively dead and has been for months.

    My guess is that T-Mo is only leaving 2G...

    That is very unusual for a new, or even used phone. What phone did you get?

    Nice try playing the poor-little-me victim. You advocated for the abolition of the stock market. You wrote it. Own it.

    POPs is the number of people with signal coverage. For advertising purposes their are some standards to claim a user covered. I don't know what standards are, but a user that has signal coverage one...

    Nice try at a strawman argument. Verizon, and AT&T to some extent, are the ones who made coverage outside of metro areas and the major highways near them a priority even though the profit from those...

    They increased the dividend by 2%, a 5 cent per share per year increase to $2.61 yearly.

    Comparing the dividend payout just to the postpaid subscribers is meaningless.

    $11Bil is 8% of revenue,...
