    Thanks for the reminder. I had forgotten to do those for a while. I have added it to my spreadsheet.

    I have never given my real name or city, state. I just use an ipsum lorem generator to create...

    It's no better with other carriers. No point in leaving AT&T over it. The AT&T OLAM is notoriously slow.

    Until they remove it. IIRC, last time it ran several months. Then there was a period of weeks or months that it was removed. There was an on-screen scratch off game before that.

    Nope. If there is a wrong name in the database it will stay that way until a carrier/service provider submits a change.

    I've been getting 5-50 a day on spin - most days 5 or 10. Along with points from the previous iteration of spin and the monthly and twice monthly points, I now have 2000+ points so I can redeem for a...
  7. The calling party's carrier never sends the name....

    The calling party's carrier never sends the name. They only send the number. The name is retrieved by the called party's carrier.

    Disagree all you want. I worked in telcom engineering for years. Although I did not personally work on CNAM issues, people I worked with said that the way I described it is the way it works.

    The originating carrier only sends the Caller ID number. The receiving carrier (which could be the same one) does a database lookup from regional servers to send the text name to the called party.

    There are two parts to Caller ID, the number and the name. The number is transmitted by the originating carrier. The name is done by the receiving carrier by a database lookup. I don't think Tracfone...

    You can try the first month for $5 with a referral code, SIM is free and ships fast. Subsequent months are $40 full price or $25 if you join an anonymous party. Everyone gets and pays their own bill....

    FWIW, I just activated a TF bundle phone that I bought six months ago. With Verizon in charge now I wouldn't count on much of anything.

    TF Verizon SIMs can generally be reused. It's the AT&T and T-Mobile ones that can't be reused.

    The number on the SIM is the SIM number. The IMEI is embedded in the phone.

    Yes. There is one call center crew for all of the Tracfone brands. They probably work one brand at a time and have to be trained for each brand to support.
