    I thought it was settled a year or so ago that you no longer have to contact PP to move a SIM to a different device.

    There is more to it than just the phone model. It can also depend on the branding of the phone, the carrier or service it is on, and the version of Android.

    Yes, that terminology is correct.



    Yes, on two of my phones, if Wifi hotspot does not work neither does USB tether. I have a router that supports USB tether to test it. To test USB tether you...

    I don't see how they can avoid it. Hotspot is becoming a must-have feature for many people and has been making its way down the service price scale.

    12 GHz* would be more like mm-wave than 2.5 GHz or 3.5 GHz C-band in range and material penetration.

    I switched back to Tracfone on a HSN bundle - $65 for a Moto E6 with 1200 each talk, text, data MB for a year. That's hard to beat if one doesn't mind a phone like the E6. It works fine for me. I'm...

    Visible data speed can be very inconsistent from moment to moment and place to place. If the cells you connect to are congested, it can be bad. Calls and texts usually always work.

    What speed test did you use? If it was Fast.com, that is from Netflix and Visible throttles video streaming to 2 Mbps. If so, try another speed test site. Speedof.me works well for me.
