    Try Moto. Look at the E and G series. There are now several generations of refinement, and they are solid, no-nonsense Android phones. They started out as budget phones and are frequently for sale...

    What are they like on 3G?

    The further that you take your phone from the strongest signal in a busy area, the more vulnerable your phone becomes to the radio noise generated by other devices on the...

    Since you've had service terminated, I'd go public on social media for a fast intervention.

    You can also go the official government route of complaining at the CCTS.

    I'd say that they learned their lesson and will likely not try it again for a long time.

    It has now been replaced with a $40 4.5GB and a $45 5.5 GB offer. This is what's I'm recommending to most friends who want a medium-sized plan.

    Your carrier might be blocking them. If you put in an active SIM from another carrier, you might get updates. You should even be getting Oreo very soon.

    What are you talking about? My Moto G received many updates over a couple of years, and I've had at least two of them with security patches for my G5 Plus over the last few months.

    I found my SIM, topped it up, and I'm back in business, with WiFi hotspot working again, still on the old proxy.bell.ca APN that I've been using for a decade or so. If I try pda.bell.ca on that...

    I use ziploc bags, sometimes with a post-it note inside, to keep these tiny things from getting lost. The thing is, sometimes I set them aside or in a pocket/bag to take with me... and somehow they...

    Thanks -- the account worked, but just not with a hotspot. It wasn't out of funds (and yes, that's happened before on loan). Though it's been briefly tested to confirm that LTE works, it was in a...

    Having an 2G-only backup phone, I'm happy about this. :-) I've used it in crowded areas to make a call when the 3G and LTE was getting dodgy. I guess that everyone else' phone was able to talk to...

    So, blame the network. This information says nothing about how the recommended Moto handsets would perform on a locally good network. Regardless, best of luck.

    Virtually every prepaid carrier here in Canada offers the LG F4NR flip phone. I just set one up for a senior. It has a single button dedicated to turning on/off the voice announcer for every...

    Moto G series is definitely worth a look. The Moto X4 might also do the trick.

    You can probably take a pricing cue from the dual-screen ZTE Axon M, which started out in flagship territory at USD $725, but can be had for a total of around $525 on an AT&T promotion.

    If you don't find anything in the short term, folding phones are inching toward reality.

    No, I don't have a physical hotspot, just phones. I tried it on three different models, all with the same result. I typically delete all APNs other than the manually set proxy.bell.ca if possible. ...

    On a phone. I tried it on several Android handsets. There was never a problem previously for me.

    The seller is making an over-generalisation in order to cover what they are selling.

    Most grey-market phones have no warranty coverage where you buy them, because most manufacturers do not offer...

    Here in Canada, pretty much every prepaid service has, at the bottom of their phones on offer, the LG F4NR. I guess that it's a winner! My dad used one to evaluate a secondary line before switching...

    Nice! I'm thinking that it's finally time to try LineageOS on my older phones, and to make a donation.
