    Hard to say. Their current phone is 2G and mine is 3G, which T-Mobile apparently doesn't track publicly anymore.

    I did just notice something I hadn't caught before. When I enter their zip code...

    Thanks for all the details. I am still adjusting my head to legacy cards vs. smartphone cards and hadn't realized the difference is just $25. That's do-able. I'll also chew over the LG Rebel.

    I'm using an E73 (3rd Edition) but can offer some tech support 101 if you're still having issues. My carrier is T-Mobile and I have no problems with SMS/MMS, so that much should be fixable. I also...

    They need to upgrade to something. Mom wants a full keyboard this time, and I don't think there are many other options.

    I'm also considering a third-party overlay to create a stripped-down UI, at...

    This is what I was concerned about. For the most part, they have been using the 1-year/$99 airtime purchases + the $50 add-on for a second year. For how irregularly they use the phone, it's...

    My parents have used Tracfone for years, but with an old feature phone, and surprised me recently by buying a Galaxy Sky from QVC. I'll be reading this forum in more detail shortly, but am first...

  8. Bizarre Tracfone (via T-Mobile) coverage problem

    I'm posting here because the problem appears to be on the tower/T-Mobile side, but will move to the Tracfone forum if there's a consensus.

    My parents have been using Tracfone for around 8 years...

    Yes, and while I did ask the location of "Executive Customer Service" and was told "Miami", I get the impression that these reps may be outsourced, too. I worked in an environment like...

    Not a question. Just decided to share a (horrible and still unresolved) support issue. This company has problems!

  13. T-Mobile blocking mobile browsers on Community site?

    I noticed something strange lately and wonder if it's just my phone or a larger problem. In August, T-Mobile rebuilt their public forums using the Jive platform (http://www.jivesoftware.com/ ). I...

    Unlocked C7 with warranty in USA?

    I know the C7 is available for sale from different sources. There's the T-Mobile Astound, which can obviously be unlocked, but it supports only T-Mobile's 3G/4G frequencies, and you become slave to...

  20. Nokia Messaging Service (push email) on T-Mobile?

    I bought a Nokia E73 from T-Mobile USA roughly this time last year. I typically use two POP3 accounts, and so skipped even trying Nokia's Messaging service at the time. (Nokia Messaging being their...

    Phone tracking/security software?

    My phone is an E73 (S60 3rd FP2). Can anybody recommend a remote security/tracking package besides F-Secure's AntiTheft, or Melon Mobile's Easy Locator or Advance Device Locks Pro? Thanks!
