    I manually refill my two PPC lines. I look at my account on the website, and whatever date they say it expires on, I refill sometime the previous day. I too was under the impression that things...

    I have two Fiesta 2s on PPC pay as you go, and have been eyeing the J7 Crown since it was first introduced.

    There were some killer deals for it (maybe even still - $50 from several sources,...

    Going to Apple for a screen repair (at least just glass cover cracks with a working display and digitizer) is like going to a car dealer to change out the air filter. You'll be gouged!

    Quick charging of whatever type is a nice occasional convenience, but you'll likely experience greater battery lifespan (not referring to run time) if you go with a lighter charge (lower max amperage...

    I wonder how much a screen glass replacement is at a typical neighborhood cell phone shop, or a place like Batteries + Bulbs (they'd be more since they're national)?

    I'll bet a typical repair tech...

    I use an Android as a personal daily driver, but currently at my job I'm issued an iPhone 6S (and a very nice 2017 MacBook Pro!); previous job used a 4S. They work fine.

    I took a quick look at the A10e demo at my local Walmart a few days ago.

    I like the idea of the fuller display (smaller bezels) in the given size of the device, but with its 18:9 display ratio it...

    Price point wise I'd probably be more likely to shoot for an E-series Moto. This is a seldom used line of service. I think there's an E6 line now if I'm not mistaken.

    Good inexpensive T-Mo phone with Band 71

    I'm still sporting a phone for my T-Mo service that's using HSPA+ (and believe it or not, in my area still plenty of Edge/2G), so looking for something with LTE.

    I'm aware of the LG Aristo 2 Plus,...

    Thanks for all that good info.

    I believe the guy was probably NOT in a native Sprint coverage area when he did his latest PRL update. And he didn't have roaming enabled (or had inadvertently...

    Well, I was glad to get into 16 GB phones when I did. With the one I'm using now I've only used up 7.35 GB of the 16 GB! I wish I could get rid of all the unused pre-installed apps (LG Fiesta 2), but...

    16 GB? I was using 8 GB devices until about a year and a half ago.

    I'm afraid that in this price range or service tier, 16 GB may be the holding point for some time. I've no reason to think...

    No improvement after doing a PRL update. in fact, now he can't make voice calls from home. I recommended getting to a Sprint store pronto, nearest being Portland, ME.

    After reading around a bit, I'm convinced he needs to update his PRL, so I looked it up on Sprint's website for his phone model. Pretty simple. Now if he can only get my message with the link to that...
