    I used one of my Family Dollar Tracfone Verizon SIMs in December 2019 to activate service on a Moto G6. It got VoLTE and triple units from basic cards. Don't know if they will still work.

    This method is correct for my Moto E5 with Android 8. The different method I previously posted was what worked for my Moto E6 with Android 9 and Moto G7 Power with Android 10.

    I think that is correct. I got them with a Moto G7 Power on Visible, a Moto E6 on Tracfone, and the G7 now on Page Plus.

    The bad new is that it appears to use cell data even if Wifi is on. I just...

    Yes, you will have to pay for it.
