    Sprint has only had one profitable year (2018?) since 2006 and that year was not very profitable - something like only $400 million from operations. The rest of the about 4 billion profit was from...

    Transferring (porting) a number does not remove it from an Android phone. The number is in the phone not on the SIM.

    It doesn't make much sense, but that's the way Android works in my personal experience with several phones. The phone can be reused because activation with a new number replaces the old one.

    Thanks for the comparison between the Coolpad and another device. I had not heard that the Coolpad was weaksauce.

    For Androids, yes. Factory reset does not remove the last active phone number. It's still there in Settings -> About phone. Don't know if this applies to all versions of Android.

    What would it take to convince you that the early Sprint LTE phones had an embedded, non-removable SIM?

    I have used the three phones I mentioned in post #4 for over five years.

    Verizon phones of this era were unlocked from the factory, but only for the capabilities included in the phone. They did not include much that would be compatible with other carriers.

    I have three Sprint phones from the Ringplus days - Galaxy S3, LG Viper, and LG Mach. None of them have a removable SIM, but definitely work on LTE. These are oddities from the early days of LTE and...

    I have used a prepaid MVNO, Tracfone specifically, for the past eighteen years for a cost of next to nothing for all the cell service I need. I can say with complete confidence based on sufficient...

    Androids and Tracfone feature phones retain the last number they were active with if that matters to you. The number can't be used, but if that was your number it will still be there.

    Sounds like one of those scams where the seller reported the phone lost or stolen and got your money and filed an insurance claim for more money.

    You can file a report with the police, but they...

    You may have cables that have gone bad. Bending and twisting cables, especially at the end points, can break the wires inside after a while.

    Interesting. I had not heard that Ting had added Verizon as a carrier.

    Their plans have no appeal to me, but, of course, may to others.

    Closing arguments at the end of the month. Judgment maybe in March (2020). An out of court settlement between the parties could happen any time.

    The test drive was still available three days ago. I ordered one and received it today. It worked with no issues. It's a nice un-carrier move by T-Mo.

    Yes, Sprint's 2.5 GHz would make T-Mo's path forward a lot easier. To be fair to Verizon, they need some more spectrum below mm-wave too.

    Did you plug in corded ear buds or headset? All the phones I have seen with an FM radio require that. It uses the cord as the antenna. I would expect a radio app to come with the phone.
