    Lots of reports that CDMA is being slowly choked off, so many users will see diminished coverage before the final end. There are lots of inexpensive VoLTE phones available, so little excuse to not...

    While even Android phones have a serial number different than the IMEI, nobody cares about it for phone identity in activations. In a TF account will be listed the IMEI and also a phone number if...

    If the IRS investigates a company selling out of state and confiscated their sales records, they can inform the taxing agency in the buyer's state. If you don't pay the state, they can turn it back...

    I got rid of my really old phones a year ago. Kept a couple for backup, but they are no longer usable for that now. Bought an inexpensive one recently for backup. All set up, just needing the SIM...

    It's likely that the June 2020 date was more rumor than truth. December 2020 is in line with what Verizon last stated. So why can't the Tracfone companies put out a bulletin themselves? Contacting...

    Same here at one store only. No ship-to-store or home delivery options.

    Having an account is not a stupid, but a way to verify status and protect your phone. The IMEI is the serial number, and is already linked to the SIM number in a TF branded phone. Lots of iPhones...

    There were always differences of reception between the carriers, and I saw comparison from travelers who carried both AT&T and Verizon phones long before VoLTE. Verizon LTE only is going to change...

    Yes, AT&T VM numbers are all regional. Doesn't a long press of the "1" key on the phone dialer access that number?
  11. I am curious if AT&T will unlock new unused...

    I am curious if AT&T will unlock new unused phones these days. Did you get an option on the unlock request to not put it in AT&T service? That used to be the out to their service requirement for...

    There have been messages sent to some owners of non-VoLTE phones from Tracfone, Straight Talk, and Page Plus stating June 2020 for the CDMA shutdown. Some Page Plus CSRs have also stated this. That...

    I was curious about the current state of unlock of AT&T phones. Couldn't you do that before if it had never been in AT&T service? Didn't you get your Z222 unlocked somehow?

    Moto G6 seems to have issues with the Pie update, but it can affect other phones too. Full reset may be the only way to cure this. Sucks having to set up the phone again after this.

    The OP is correct that AT&T calls the older one a Cingular Flip 2. The new Alcatel Smartflip is discounted to $30 at Best Buy. I would like to see a review once someone brings one to Tracfone.

    Was that with a 3 carrier kit? The earlier 2 carrier kits may not work anymore.

    Looks like T-Mobile does not support VVM on the MNOs. Surprised, as they offer things with VoLTE that the others don't.

    True, you have to start with some connection. Looks like this phone is selectively SIM locked against any CDMA network.

    That's what I was thinking too. They might want to finally get rid of TMFL and/or insure VoLTE capability. Think my old 2 carrier SIM kits are dated 2015. I did not use a SIM from these kits in an...

    Wonder if this iPhone 7 can run CDMA-less on Verizon? You would think it could at least run LTE data, but maybe iPhones can't. As I said earlier, the swapped SIM from the iPhone 6 may not be VoLTE...

    Still don't understand how you are finding a listing at Target. I only can find an SE there for an overpriced Simple Mobile model.

    You would need a VoLTE enabled SIM/account to work with voice in the A1785 if that phone does not have CDMA. Your 6 Plus may not have a VoLTE enabled account.

    An unlocked Moto G6 should have the VVM setting in the dialer. Phone > Menu > Settings > Voicemail > Visual Voicemail. Does yours show that? Might be missing or grayed out if the account does not...

    A SIM kit that old is probably TMFL, which many still cherish.

    It could be that this model was locked out of CDMA by Apple because the Japanese carriers only use GSM.
