    If you're using the very latest OS/browser you're ok. It's off by default in anything that's a couple years old, like IE 8-10, some Firefox ESRs, and Opera.

    Nevermind, I figured it out. The chat.tracfone.com error was a red herring. The real issue is that tracfone.com outsources its chat to inq.com, which requires a newer version of SSL that for some...

    Well, MS ate them for the patents- all the engineers were fired or jumped ship so there isn't really anyone to ask anymore. I wasn't expecting anyone here to know the details of this phone...

    Question: if you have an older 3G feature phone...

    Question: if you have an older 3G feature phone (that can't browse the web while on a call), is there any possibility that it might flipflop back and forth between GSM and WCDMA depending on what...

    Yeah well that's the thing, I know UMTS/WCDMA supports voice and that by rights any phone should be able to do voice over 3G, what I'm wondering is if it's legally required, and if not what are the...

    Getting back on track to my original question; I assumed that for simple cost reasons phone manufacturers would make a single radio that can talk both GSM and UMTS, so I'm not asking if the phone has...
  7. WCDMA is one of the three possible air-interfaces...

    WCDMA is one of the three possible air-interfaces that the UMTS spec allows. I'm not sure who you were talking to or what they meant by 'gigs' in this context, but the W in WCDMA stands for...
  8. CDMA, WCDMA, TDCDMA, and TDSCDMA are not...

    CDMA, WCDMA, TDCDMA, and TDSCDMA are not identical technologies just because they contain the same letters. That's like saying you'll never be a homeowner because you don't like the word "meow". If...

    Where does "UTRA-FDD" and "UTRA-TDD" fit into this? I don't fully understand what those are.
  10. I'm really not clear on a lot of this, but I was...

    I'm really not clear on a lot of this, but I was under the impression that UMTS was the overall specification, which allowed for three different "interfaces": WCDMA, TDCDMA, and TDSCDMA. WCDMA is...

    No, I do connect through a firewall that occasionally causes problems but I'm not convinced that's what's happening here. If I remote into a server at the local University, I can't ping or browse...

    OK, so just to be sure, there's no such thing as a phone that only does data over 3G and not voice? There are no other protocols/codecs/keys/etc that AT&T requires besides talking WCDMA over the...
  13. Need some help from someone who understands UMTS/WCDMA/etc

    I have in my hand an old Nokia feature phone that according to the manual "is approved for use on the GSM 850, 900, 1800, 1900 and WCDMA 850, 1900, 2100 MHz networks". In the system settings it has a...

    Yeah, that pic is the same page I see (case_select_action.jsp), but that red balloon has never popped up for me. chat.tracfone.com still isn't responding pings or web requests for me either. Aaargh.

    As with Consumer Cellular, Tracfone doesn't have their own network but piggybacks across AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile. What's probably happening is that the TF sim you got is through a carrier that...

    I did have popups blocked, but turning that and adblocker off doesn't fix it. It still gets stuck on "connecting to chat.tracfone.com" and I don't see anything.

    >transfering from DEAD phones
    Back in the day, all the account info was stored in the phone itself, and if it died you were SOL. With modern TF though they track all that themselves and if your...
  18. Moving to new phone, getting contradictory instructions from reps. Anyone help?

    I'm trying to move from one TF featurephone to another TF featurephone due to the 2G upgrade. My old phone is on AT&T obviously. The new phone they gave me originally came with a T-mobile sim, but...

    That number and the 305 local Miami number(s) are answered by the same secretary girl, but at least this time she transferred me to someone who could open my account info and already could see a...

    According to the status messages, something keeps trying to connect to 'chat.tracfone.com'. That name resolves to an IP, but pinging it or trying to go there directly yields no response.

    I'm not seeing a "contact us" link either. Do you mean "about us"? I don't get anything when I go there or if I click the "support" button near the top of the page.
    Wait nevermind, you mean the...

    How do you get to TF's support chat?

    People have mentioned this existing many times, but I can't find a link to it anywhere on their site.

    Which Miami number? There appear to be several.

    As for chat.... I'm not so sure if that's for me. I'm having an issue with a special promotion that most of the reps have never heard of and claim...
  24. What are the valid 'escalation' phone numbers these days?

    Trying to get some stuff sorted out with TF people who are higher up the food chain. I have a list of numbers, but TF keeps shutting them down once they become well known and redirects calls to...

    There was a vanilla version, but it's not sold anymore for whatever reason.

    I was hoping both versions were the same under the hood besides things like the splash logo. Oh well. Thanks for the...
