    I assume everybody was still running on Sprint before the sale? Seems like WiFi calling would be a feature after a transition to T-Mobile, as they allow it with other MVNOs.

    Were you planning on activating this phone? It is a GSM 2G model that may only run on T-Mobile now, and that may stop end of this year.

    Neither Sprint nor T-Mobile has good service in many outer areas. The two highways that come into town vary in coverage between these carriers. That may improve with further tower integration, but in...

    Try the handy GPS Test app. Phones do vary in their GPS capability. Some of my older models were lousy. You hear of variances even between same model phones.

    There has to be a tower connection for e911, as Serial Port stated. WiFi is worthless for determining your location, and much the same for the tower location you are using. That is why a physical...

    Does this phone show in your online account with the correct phone number? T-Mobile also says WiFi Calling needs to be associated with an e911 location address. No idea why this is.

    Verizon used to have some fairly decent lower priced basic phones, but they all look junky now. Overpriced too, like the $100 Alcatel Go Flip 5 which you can buy much the same model from Tracfone for...

    I don't see any app that turns GPS on automatically. Always a prompt to turn it on, and it stays on until manually shut off. I had thought there was not much battery use if not moving around, but it...

    You will be required to activate on T-Mobile sometime coming up anyway. Does your phone have B71? Many non-TMO branded Android phones don't. Not totally essential, but helpful.

    Are you roaming on the T-Mobile network using a Sprint account? You might have to be activated on T-Mobile for this feature.

    Yep, looks like the T-Mobile map in my area. That's low-band n71 for 5G, and likely some B71 for LTE. They just recently opened that up here.

    You have to expect a company like Dish would make it complicated. They were messed up and loosing customers to Direct TV until AT&T bungled that.

    I think the SIM card ID was marked for the brand back then. ST for Straight Talk, NT for Net10, TF for Tracfone.

    Misuse of the phone sections goes back a long time. It would be way too hard to edit them at this point.
