    i can't find out what "virtualized, standalone 5G network" means. What is virtual about it?

    Yes, stick with T-Mobile for now. Nobody else has towers near the specific area you mentioned according to Cellmapper. They have a tower right in Nixon. They also have the only tower near Shiner,...

    AT&T (maybe T-Mobile) did this before with HSPA+ being labeled as 4G before they had LTE. Glad to see they got slapped this time.

    Nobody is really giving information about what part of 5G is...

    You could "side load" things into some of the feature phones like the LG840G and LG306G. But then, those phones were a cut above the cheaper "flips" of the time. My LG306G was so good that I used it...

    That's what I figured from other experience. The menus are in the phone (on the SIM?), but don't display if the carrier feature is not active. Thanks!

    Not sure, but you may need some T-Mobile service to initially enable their WiFi calling feature. You might check their coverage map for your area. TMO maps can be quite revealing if zoomed in to the...

    Do you only see WiFi calling settings listed with a TF/TMO SIM installed? Do you not see the settings with the other carrier SIMs installed? My Moto G5 with TF/VZW SIM shows no settings. Not blanked...

    You have to be on the main forum topic page (Sprint in this case) to post a new topic. You can't do it from a thread.

    VZW has two standards of phone acceptance. Those that will comply with every whim of the network, and those that will run on the network with limitations. Only the first are allowed on their direct...

    Yes, any phones being sold by the Tracfone companies have been VoLTE capable for the last couple of years.

    Published phone specifications almost never mention VoLTE. It was not until actual VoLTE activations started happening in 2018 on the Tracfone companies that unofficial lists started being put...
  12. Phone is too old to be activated with VoLTE,...

    Phone is too old to be activated with VoLTE, which a requirement with most carriers now. CDMA will soon be shut off on all carriers using it. Verizon, Sprint, US Cellular.

    Why does the blood...

    Agree, having connection problems with both charge and data sounds like a cable. Hopefully it is not the USB-C port on the phone.

    Unfortunately, the unlocking policy specific details are up to interpretation by the CSRs. Some have been told bundled airtime counts, and some that it does not. I don't think there is a requirement...

    How did you activate the present SIM?
    Do you know for sure which carrier the SIM is for? 890126 = T-Mobile, 890141 = AT&T, 891480 = Verizon
    What service is actually better in your area? T-Mobile is...

    Yes, you need to purchase some airtime somewhere during the first 12 months of service. Airtime transferred over from previous service, or "bonus" airtime applied from a bundle do not qualify as...

    The return and refund went very smoothly with no cost to me. It went back to the same refurb company in Texas where it was originally shipped from.

    It's a "one size fits all" issue. Visual Voicemail is the default on all account activations using Verizon. The basic phones don't have the computing power to handle VVM.

    The CPUC is a government agency and just shoves out what they want, sort of like a court of law. It is not the same as a business contract. Hard to say if T-Mobile actually tried to negotiate during...

    T-Mobile just agreed to the CPUC conditions to get it off the table, then go back later to adjust. Maintaining all the retail stores was never realistic, nor the 5G coverage timetable.

    It's not so much about the phones, but AT&T generally locking out VoLTE to the MVNOs.

    What does the data icon in the Quick Settings menu show? It may be grayed out if there is no data available.

    Yes, it could be a simple APN problem. Most Tracfone companies on Verizon use...

    Are these Sprint purchased hotspots? Any idea what LTE bands they are running on now?

    If you follow hpham's instruction, it will place service on the G6. If you want service to end up on the G4 Play it will take another service transfer or SIM swap.
