    None of Verizon's phones are truly LTE-only. All of them have 2G and 2G of one kind or the other. Most of them have GSM/HSPA for international roaming. The ZTE Cymbal (prepaid) and Sonim XP5 have...

    There is no way to do it securely. (Someone I know puts in a gibberish APN, which is fairly effective.) But these phones all have WiFi, so blocking the cellular data wouldn't keep people from using...

    I don't know what the big MVNOs' situation is. But I'm a Verizon MVNO, and I have been able to do VoLTE for several months.

    When people ask me if Sprint is going to shut off 2G like Verizon, I tell them that Sprint needs to get VoLTE working first. But yesterday I had to add: "But I heard a rumor that they turned it on...

    Does any other carrier have more than three flip phone models available?
  7. Yes, you do. You can't use Hangouts if Verizon...

    Yes, you do. You can't use Hangouts if Verizon won't activate your phone.

    They won't activate it because, a year and a half after the cutoff date, they will be shutting down CDMA and that phone...

    I don't think the unlocked version of the G4 Play supports Voice over LTE on Verizon. (The prepaid version does, but it's locked to Verizon prepaid, so it won't work on Red Pocket—at least not...

    There are places where Verizon has overbuilt 2G/3G roaming partners with 4G coverage. One of the more notable is West Virginia and western Maryland, where they roam on US Cellular 2G but have their...

    Yes. All Verizon LTE phones use SIM cards. Most of them even support GSM roaming. (But not the Sonim XP5.) So now Verizon is the best place to get an unlocked GSM phone!

    I wouldn't be surprised if the same thing happens to Verizon as happened to Telus. They needed to postpone their 2G sunset by four months because they couldn't keep up with the last-minute rush of...

    In El Salvador, the carriers even quote their rates by the second. (At least Tigo does.)
  13. I'm pretty sure this is a result of Verizon...

    I'm pretty sure this is a result of Verizon finally starting to enforce the hotspot limits on their unlimited plan. I'm sure I wasn't the only person telling his friends that were bit by that, "AT&T...

    I live in an area that's rural enough we can barely get DSL, and Verizon's towers are pretty congested. AT&T's towers aren't usually congested though, since just about everyone around here has...

    It sounds very possible to me. Three hours of Netflix a day is a lot of data. If Verizon is charging you $2 per megabyte for international roaming data (just a fairly average international-roaming...

    Verizon doesn't do voice over 3G, so when they turn off 1x, they will turn off 3G as well. So none of the flip phones Verizon sells besides the Cadence and the Exalt LTE will work after their 2G...
