    So today, I ported the number from this account over to AT&T where there is a way to get a prepaid number onto an eSIM.
    Soon after, I received an email from Tmobile with a link to their site where I...

    Just one small almost unrelated issue that I just encountered.
    Since I am now back on Verizon, I called in to have them migrate my SIM onto an eSIM in my iphone. To make a long story short, after...

    That's pretty much what I've been told by anyone I have asked. It's performance though really makes me wonder. It just works so well on Verizon and so poorly on ATT. The idea that all towers along a...

    Just spoke with a Tmobile rep who insists that no, this cannot be done. The only way to get an eSIM working on a Tmobile account (and they only do it for prepaid accounts btw) is to create a new...

    Isn't an IMEI a unique number uniquely associated with a particular phone number?

    Again, it's my understanding that the iphones allow up to 5 eSIM phone numbers to be in the phone.
    If there are...

    good to know!

    I used to have an AT&T prepaid on an eSIM even though they told me it couldn't be done. You just have know how to do it.
    On AT&T, the online login gives you access to being able to change your SIM...

    Thank you for the reply.

    - Fewer bars. Yes, that's for sure. But seeing only 1 or 2 with between -108 and -117 signal strength for a 25 mile stretch of freeway in a major metropolitan area was...
  9. Can active prepaid SIM be converted to eSIM by a Tmobile rep?

    Can an existing Tmobile prepaid number that is on a physical SIM be transferred to an eSIM inside an Apple device or will Tmobile insist on a new account and phone number in order to do this? If only...

    According to the iphone specs, up to 5 eSIMS may be set up in the Xr. They cannot all be USED at the same time, only the physical SIM and one eSIM at a time can be, but there is room for 5 different...

    Yup. Something's up but I am running out of patience with this stuff. Fact is, now that I am back on Verizon and everything seems well enough, I will just accept it all for what it is and move on. I...

    I actually ported back to Verizon late today. I followed the same route that I took the other day and rarely saw anything but 4 full bars once on Verizon again. I am at a loss as to why the...

    I was afraid to give him the eSIM IMEI because I already had a number using it and didn't want that screwed up. I am not the expert, the rep is, and when I told him about my concerns, he made no...

    OK so today, I have a completely different assessment!

    I did some driving around and experimenting and my entire feelings have now changed.

    1 - The bars on the phone most certainly DO mean...

    I appreciate all the input from everyone on this. I have learned a lot.

    I am still not QUITE sure why the bars on the phone are so low when on LTE but so be it.

    I do go into field test mode to...

    Does Tmobile prepaid use band 71?

    And if so, do all the prepaid plans use it?

    Wow, you know what? I'm a dummy and I apologize. I just looked at the menu once again and saw that there is NOT a 4G option there. It's actually labeled "OFF." Why I thought it said 4G is beyond...

    Yes well I suspect they are still labeling 3G is 4G. Again, why have a menu option for;
    4G
    Data & Voice
    Data Only

    Isn't the 4G option (IF were truly 4G) the same as the Data & Voice option?...
  20. Yes I know that but as I have said more than once...

    Yes I know that but as I have said more than once already, I have read in other forums that AT&T labels the setting as 4G even though it is really 3G. The reasoning was that it is for marketing...

    Yes the iphone has the option in LTE settings to;
    A - 4G
    B - Voice and Data
    C - Data only

    I have read in other forums that as far as AT&T is concerned, when they say "4G' it's really 3G and not...

    Just an update one month after my last post here.

    The other day I got into chat with a Verizon rep online to have them help me transfer my number from the physical SIM to an eSIM slot in my phone....

    So I really have to say that nowhere in my 66 years on this planet have I come across a topic so full of contradictory and inaccurate information as I have in researching cell phones and their...
  24. Can I still make VoLTE calls if I select 4G in LTE settings?

    With my phone (iphone Xr) I can select LTE for phone and data, data only or I can switch it off and just have 4G.

    4G always shows better signal strength (big difference in many instances) so my...

    Well, the reason I asked is because I opened up a prepaid account this morning and within a few hours of only setting up my voicemail and getting a bunch of txt messages from Tmobile (no other use at...
