    The teeny tiny niche users need a dual sim phone for this exotic process. The few others just wanted to travel and not have to swap out the sims when they get off the plane. As noted, the isheep...

    I have read elsewhere that its closer to .5mb/min, but its likely to vary as well based on the specifics of the phone/tower/etc.

    I sometimes forward my GV# to work. If the work voicemail picks up, GV thinks the call went through so there is no GV message to be left.
    Can you turn off the freedompop voicemail or extend the...

    Just buy a year on PagePlus, not as cheap, but you only have to renew. I think you can set up auto pay even on paygo, but I don't , so you'd need to double check.
  5. My son wanted a newer phone (better memory, etc)...

    My son wanted a newer phone (better memory, etc) so he switched over to H2O wireless.
    Paygo is similar, but they don't have anything as cheap as a 12 plan.
    Both ATT and Verizon networks are pretty...

    I solved this by getting a google voice # since you can link that to your cell #. MMS can go right to email if needed.
    I've never had any issues directly with PP though. Data is off and I turn it...

    This was posted elsewhere, its a good deal and the Straight Talk Phone generally activate on PP with no issue. $150

    That is a nice deal, too bad PP won't let us use the standard plan for LTE phones yet. Wifi satisfied my data needs. I wonder if that will activate on Tracfone as well.
  9. Yes, being in a similar situation for a phone...

    Yes, being in a similar situation for a phone upgrade I'm not happy at all about how PP handles their plans. You can get a nice unlocked phone for $200 or less (new Moto has $50 gift card incentive)...

    Since you can take any phone to TF now, which I am thinking of switching back to, it seems you're mostly wanting the qwerty physical keypad. Ah , for the days of my Palm Pixi, which seems so quaint...

    I'm looking to move as well. Need a new phone as well and since PP is so LTE unfriendly for their pay as you go plans, time to move on.
    Since wifi is so handy for me, just a small amount of data is...

    So, since PP has added a fair number of decent 3G phones we can buy directly, which way to go.

    Just buy one from PP. As cheap as $19.99.

    I've activated 3G straight talk phones , the Optimus Fuel, for my kids.
    But that's on PP for $30, among other cheap phones.
    The selection has gotten...

    Refurb PP phones

    Lots of deals on the PP site for phones, esp refurb phones.

    Can anyone share experience with PP refurb. Always hard to know. Sometimes they're just new open box and sometimes you get a used phone.

    The two I have for my kids have removable batteries. We were actually upgrading from a pixi as well, so they were quite happy to get Android phones. And remember, you can buy a USB external...

    I don't use data, except via Wifi, but if she won't be streaming much, 3G should be good for everything else.

    My son's phone had very weird records where the balance dropped in odd ways so I was worried he had data leaking by leaving it on by accident (std plan).
    I called to inquire and they wouldn't give...

    Aside from the iPhone, there are some other Verizon 3G world phones you can find on Ebay. You'd also need to get unlock codes for them.

    I've got an HTC Trophy for example , which can take the...

    I'd go with just activating the flip phone with its own # on the $10 plan and forward you smart phone # while you're out and about. They're more suited to being tossed around anyway and the battery...

    Why exactly will I care either way. Credit cards are small, simple, don't need recharging, are waterproof and ubiquitous and you need that number to plug into your phone anyway. Why add complexity.
