    Verizon used to have some fairly decent lower priced basic phones, but they all look junky now. Overpriced too, like the $100 Alcatel Go Flip 5 which you can buy much the same model from Tracfone for...

    I don't see any app that turns GPS on automatically. Always a prompt to turn it on, and it stays on until manually shut off. I had thought there was not much battery use if not moving around, but it...

    Same dilemma for Sprint customers as well. Not known when the Sprint network will be closed down. There is a lot of tower integration to complete. Not sure what from the Sprint network will survive,...

    Samsung Store notifications

    Recently a friend's Verizon branded Galaxy S7 Edge started giving notifications that the Samsung Store app was using battery. A battery check shows no recent use. A check in the app shows "Disable"...

    You will be required to activate on T-Mobile sometime coming up anyway. Does your phone have B71? Many non-TMO branded Android phones don't. Not totally essential, but helpful.

    Yep, looks like the T-Mobile map in my area. That's low-band n71 for 5G, and likely some B71 for LTE. They just recently opened that up here.

    You have to expect a company like Dish would make it complicated. They were messed up and loosing customers to Direct TV until AT&T bungled that.

    Not sure when all the SIMS became marked TF. Even in the early smartphone era there were brand markings. Before BYOP was officially released by Tracfone, some found out you could use an ST marked SIM...

    I think the SIM card ID was marked for the brand back then. ST for Straight Talk, NT for Net10, TF for Tracfone.
    Yes, the phones were REALLY locked down to a single application then. Rebranding is...

    No mention of 5G, except listing the Galaxy S20 5G phone as one of the choices for the Expanded Data Network. I assume it's the T-Mobile network with VoLTE. Not sure why they are restricting the...

    Misuse of the phone sections goes back a long time. It would be way too hard to edit them at this point.

    i can't find out what "virtualized, standalone 5G network" means. What is virtual about it?

    Yes, stick with T-Mobile for now. Nobody else has towers near the specific area you mentioned according to Cellmapper. They have a tower right in Nixon. They also have the only tower near Shiner,...

    AT&T (maybe T-Mobile) did this before with HSPA+ being labeled as 4G before they had LTE. Glad to see they got slapped this time.

    Nobody is really giving information about what part of 5G is...

    You could "side load" things into some of the feature phones like the LG840G and LG306G. But then, those phones were a cut above the cheaper "flips" of the time. My LG306G was so good that I used it...

    That's what I figured from other experience. The menus are in the phone (on the SIM?), but don't display if the carrier feature is not active. Thanks!

    Not sure, but you may need some T-Mobile service to initially enable their WiFi calling feature. You might check their coverage map for your area. TMO maps can be quite revealing if zoomed in to the...

    Do you only see WiFi calling settings listed with a TF/TMO SIM installed? Do you not see the settings with the other carrier SIMs installed? My Moto G5 with TF/VZW SIM shows no settings. Not blanked...

    You have to be on the main forum topic page (Sprint in this case) to post a new topic. You can't do it from a thread.
