    My remembrance of the AT&T 2G shutdown was that TracFone would only offer a replacement 3G/4G phone for an active 2G phone. Not for inactive 2G phones, which many had collections of. I had considered...

    T-Mobile has allowed VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling on the MVNOs for a good while. T-Mobile versions of some older TracFones had these features, while the Verizon version did not.

    There is an AT&T corporate store in the mall next to the Home Depot at SR 312 and RT 1. 904-823-1550. This seems like an AT&T issue and maybe they can be helpful. You are on their Prepaid service.

    I had searched PPN earlier today and did not find an article on this subject. Thanks much for posting it! It was wise for them to use the term "rumor", as there a lot of holes in the situation.

    I...
  5. My intended use would be as a house phone to use...

    My intended use would be as a house phone to use for longer conversations that cost too much with TracFone. According to the maps there is decent T-Mobile signal where I live. Definitely NOT so a...

    I would be far more convinced if there was an article in Prepaid Phone News. Have seen some info that Verizon has stopped putting any new non-VoLTE phones in its lineup. That has been known for some...

    The Rebel 2 has always been non-TMFL. What might have confused some buyers is the 1200/1200/1200 service that came with the bundles sounded like the service (400 x 3) that had come with the earlier...

    Maybe I will apply and get whatever crummy phone they send, then upgrade from there. No hurry, as I have no reason to drop my TracFone account that has many years of service time. Main interest is...
  9. That's a good suggestion. Only issue is the Sky...

    That's a good suggestion. Only issue is the Sky Pro has not been activated yet, so it may or may not be in their database. It would be if activated, then deactivated from a service transfer.
  10. The cited memo does not state it's origin,...

    The cited memo does not state it's origin, intended audience, or date of issue. Might only apply to Verizon direct customers, with MVNOs having other rules. With only a few months to the supposed...
  11. I assumed that a new BYOP SIM could not be...

    I assumed that a new BYOP SIM could not be activated in the Sky Pro after it's service had been transferred to another phone. It would have it's IMEI linked to the original SIM in the TracFone...

    You might try temporarily swapping the activated SIM from the Sky to the Sky Pro. Would tell if a non-TFML phone can be made TFML. That is branded to branded, but might indicate if an activated TF...
  13. Saying "I can operate my phone on as little as...

    Saying "I can operate my phone on as little as bla..bla..bla" says nothing about value of service. What about people who actually use their phones? My TracFone is my only phone, and I use it in every...

    The spreadsheets that did cost comparisons are complicated to use, and likely not up to date now. Do your own math.

    Example: $40 200 minute standard card gives a tripled value of 600 talk/600...
  15. You don't need to choose a plan if transferring...

    You don't need to choose a plan if transferring existing service. The talk/text/data amounts in that account are the same no matter which plan type they were originally bought with. It's only when...
  16. Thanks for that detail on iPhone data monitoring....

    Thanks for that detail on iPhone data monitoring. I figured an iPhone had such controls like later Androids do. A lot of users don't spend much time figuring out their mobile devices and PCs. Not...

    Not sure about iPhones, but some Android apps can use data in the background. Facebook is real bad for this. Is there a way on the phone to check your data usage history? In Android there is a list...

    I saw no indication of source with this upgrade. Has been true for other smaller upgrades of this and other phones in TracFone service. My assumption was they came from the manufacturer. Not sure...

    I checked Chrome on a couple of phones, and it has the Chat box. Don't all Android phones came with Chrome?

    I just re-checked my PC Chrome and it does have pop-ups blocked. Does not stop the chat button though.

    Firefox has a pop-up blocker turned on by default. Menu > Options > Privacy and Security > Block pop-up windows. You can either uncheck the box, or give exceptions. Chrome has this in a similar...

    On the website you have to put in your phone number to see all the card/plan choices. The system knows what your phone can use. If you just chose smartphones, only the smartphone-only cards/plans...

    The QVC comments forum does not have the level of experience and continuity that a forum like HoFo does, so don't expect much in the way of follow ups and updates to postings.

    Yes, some TF CSRs are not well informed. Both standard and smartphone-only plans/cards are minutes/text/data, and are pay-as-you-go.

    The QVC poster may have used refill plans/cards before, but...

    AT&T says no. They redirected 911 calls to their customer service center a month before the 2G shutdown as a last effort to get you to upgrade. You might could get 911 from T-Mobile if within range...
