    I don't think it is an either. Probably a both.

    Plusses and minuses of a long plan. Due to other reasons, wanted to switch my Red Pocket plan from the ATT network to the Verizon network. ...

    The iPhone 6 was the first iPhone that supported VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling, at least on some carriers. And for the MVNOs that support VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling on ATT network, apparently it requires the...

    The ATT phones likely won't work with UK SIMs since they are locked while you are paying them off. If you are generally in the same place, you could get a local SIM with data and wi-fi hotspot...

    Turn off Wi-Fi. Make a phone call. If it remains on LTE you have VoLTE. If it drops to 3G/4G, no.

    Turn on airplane mode. Turn on Wi-Fi. Attempt to make a call. If it succeeds (especially if...

    Seems like carriers like to mess with you. Sometimes it seems intentional. Other times it may be poor training or a poor computer system. And when I last was directly with ATT, any time I called...

    No. The only downside of switching is if you are on some plan that is no longer offered, or you were on something like the bonus Walmart data plan.

    Is that still widespread? Earlier this year they enabled it on H2O Wireless and Red Pocket at least. On compatible phones, similar restrictions on unbranded phones as on ATT proper.

    ATT Prepaid phones will support MVNOs. But MVNO usage doesn't count towards unlocking. Looks like the cheapest from ATT directly are after discount for signing up for ATT Prepaid. Maybe Bestbuy is...

    I used them once to test out T-Mobile before I moved to T-Mobile postpaid (so I could use my Apple Watch). It had improved. That number was regularly called by a sex recording, so learned not to...

    The advertised postpaid coverage is what convinced me to go to Boom for my primary line from T-Mobile. Though I've used RP for secondary lines when the value was better (such as $60/year).

    I chatted today, and was told it only works on shared blue plans. Not the individual plan I'm on (the annual $240/5GB plan). Looking at the shared plans, they mention the watch, but the price jump...

    I don't think it is offered on all plans. When I was with Boom a few years ago, it wasn't offered on all plans, such as the lower priced plans. Or it is a glitch. If my needs go up to where I need...

    2 weeks into my plan after switching to Blue from Red (since Red wasn't working well at my office now that I'm back to work). I'm using less data so far than I expected, so the 5GB/month plan seems...

    The iPhone 6, 6s, and SE (2016), at least in the US, support CDMA. Though I'm in the process today of switching from GSMA to CDMAV, and RP chat was saying it wasn't compatible. I told them to go...

    Looking at the Boom plans, for the annual plan, the regulatory plan costs $8.97, rather than $2.99/month that you would pay on a monthly plan.

    Thanks.

    That eBay special is the phone I bought, just without the $15 discount. Cheap enough that it wasn't worth reusing a an unlocked phone stuck on an older android OS.
