    Verizon does not support WiFi calling on the MVNOs. Only T-Mobile seems to.

    Sprint has a few call forwarding options. Using *72 is Unconditional Call Forwarding and is charged, which is maybe why it will not work on a RP account. The MVNOs do not get some of the options that...

    Looks like at least the end of Feb. for a court decision about the merger.

    TMO has bet their "cookies" on 5G which is not going to pay off any time soon. There is little millimeter-wave spectrum...

    Look for inexpensive off-brand 3G GSM phones. These may work in the USA and overseas.

    Much of the problem was not Verizon, but the rabid "tree huggers" in local government that fought for years to block having enough tower capacity. There was a big hole in coverage around the biggest...

    I live in a very hilly and forested area, so Verizon B13 works better than B4/66. So does Band 5 (850MHz), but only see it infrequently off another tower. The signal has really gone down since they...

    The MyFlip is a DL model, so can run on other carriers within the Tracfone companies. They come with a Verizon SIM (except the Simple Mobile version), but can be used on the other carriers with an...

    So they do have a plan to do OTA updates on the remaining VoLTE capable phones that were not upgraded otherwise. That had been hoped for since early on. I doubt it would include BYOP phones because...

    B66 is a superset of B4, and is completely compatible. It is the predominate Verizon LTE band used in my area. Not as good as B13 in my experience. You can't tell much about the signal on an iPhone,...

    You will only get HD Calling, and only with others on Verizon that have it enabled. Video and WiFi calling are reserved for Verizon customers.

    The *#*#4636#*#* test menu is a stock Android feature, but is locked out by some manufacturers. Motos often have it.

    Not just budget phones have a special VVM, app. Verizon branded Android phones all have a Verizon specific one, as do other carrier branded phones.

    I like that Motos stick with stock Android...

    Talk time can be bought at $10 for 500 minutes, which is far cheaper than any airtime card. 1 year Service time can be bought for $50, but only with TF branded phones.

    No, the TF website APN updater can accept a phone number, IMEI number, or SIM number.

    Did you try the Tracfone APN utility? Not sure how useful it is for an iPhone, with their Configuration Profiles being different than Android APNs. https://www.tracfone.com/apn

    The stock Android dialer (like Motos often have) can have a toggle for VVM, but it seems phones with a separate VVM app may not. From what I read early on, having a separate app installed will lock...

    Yep, Sprint is going to loose either way. If the merger goes through the CDMA network will be eliminated after a while, just like when T-Mo bought MetroPCS a few years ago. This will also affect...

    There is still a lot of "dataphobia". You have a certain amount of control minimizing data use. I keep data on all the time, as there are some things I want in real time. MMS, VVM, weather forecasts,...

    Would be better to use up some of those excessive call minutes using the cell network instead of GV on WiFi. Seems like you are using the computer as a hands free device, but that can be done on the...

    Yes, even the TF models have the IMEI on the removable SIM tray. On my TCL LX it is very small and lightly painted, which requires a good magnifying lens to read. The IMEI is always in the phone...

    Yep, your balances are too high for safety. There is a history of TF seeing this as fraud, and hard to prove otherwise. It's hard to get such high balances without spending a lot of money. Not the...
