    It's working "more normally" today. That is, in Wi-Fi/Data mode I'm back to getting a ring tone for incoming calls with the phone dark, which I'd say is likely due simply to having been restarted...

    Well, isn't this dandy: After a couple more updates of the GV app (I seem to have been getting a series of them this past month since the start of this thread), I am now experiencing exactly what you...

    Terminology wise, I think in ads (and maybe the containers the SIMs come in) they use the expression "3 in 1" to describe that the SIM is a tri-cut design, and has the different sizes available. Not...

    Wow, the next step in the degradation of the TF companies! PPC loses its Call Records access!

    I was going to chime in and say I was pretty sure there's no VRAD with an all fiber system (a VRAD being an artifact appliance of Uverse or other fiber-to-the-node [FTTN] setups where the last...

    This thing with TF deciding that you (any buyer or potential buyer of wireless service) have VZW signal adequate for your needs is such a paradigm shift. We're talking about mobile service, not fixed...

    Hard to say. I never use this method, but based on what I read for the rest of the TracFone-based universe, their online features are going through some growing pains (seemingly due to the Verizon...

    Google's explanation goes along with what I would've guessed. I only recently got more interested in receiving calls using the VoIP side of things, so most of my prior experience was over the carrier...

    The first thing I do is open the Play Store app to its Settings, and set it to NOT auto update any apps at all (this would be with Wi-Fi on, connected to my existing Google account). I generally...

    Unfortunately I can't visit anything reddit-related here where I work using the available Wi-Fi (public school), but I may have made this mistake before - lumping Metro in as an MVNO, when it is not...

    To my understanding, yes different. In fact, devices between T-Mo and their wholly owned subsidiary Metro (by T-Mobile) must also be unlocked; they're not interoperable (with no consideration to...

    I would imagine a T-Mobile device would need to be unlocked to work with this SIM.

    The previous phones I was alluding to were LG Fiesta 2 models, and they ran Android 7.0 (Nougat). Currently I'm using Motorola Moto G Power 2020 models, running Android 11.

    My memory is a little shaky about my past phones with Android 7 (Nougat) and GV, and how I set them up as regards ringtone notification. A big change in Android occurred with version 8 (and newer)...

    I just looked at my Phone app, and there's a whole bunch of stuff in there, in the Settings area under Assistive. There is the Call Screen that hpham alluded to, as well as the Caller ID & Spam area....

    When I get calls to my native cell number (which no one I know uses) I often look at the displayed number, see that I don't know it, and there's a caption that says "Suspected Spam Caller." The...

    Yeah, that's a pretty jacked up user experience. Hard to believe VZW could accept that and, knowing what should be a well known reputation about their new acquisition, not be profusely sorry and take...

    Not to be argumentative, but I just had an encounter on another online outlet with a person trying to port out of PPC that tried and failed using the IMEI, and was then asking how to correctly do it,...

    I gave my reply without asking about iOS vs. Android, but I figured it was Android since I've never heard an iPhone user refer to it as "Wi-Fi texting." But we'll need to hear back from that poster.

    If you're not porting (intending to keep the number), then you can leave them in the dust.
