    Smart Switch will transfer from non-Samsung phone to a Samsung but not the other way around.

    If you have your contacts on Google it will load them on whatever phone you have on the Google account.

    I just tried my Moto G5+ with H2O(ATT) & Tmobile and it showed VOLTE enabled. Data, voice & text worked. Just swapped SIM's, didn't consult list. Specs show it should work with all US carriers.

    I see lots of people giving out the referral codes for $ credit.
    Can one use the credit to pay for the first month, or does Tello want the cost of the first month to be in cash from credit card?
