    If you choose not to use online contacts (like Google provides) it's incumbent on you to keep backups (just as you had to before Google/smartphones)


    Only solution if you didn't is replace the...

    SM uses TMO for the carrier so should be good with other TMO SIMs from TF companies. But getting ATT or VZW on one is more involved.

    Sometimes. If it accepts the IMEI then no.

    At various times this has worked less well and required CSR intervention.

    If you enter the IMEI and it gives an error of some sort, then you contact...

    The old IMEI was not activated with VoLTE. Probably wasn't an option then.

    Are you sure you changed the IMEI on your account when you moved to the new phone? As in contacted Boom to make the...

    So no, you purchased a TW phone.

    As to why the SIM and IMEI are tied, in this case it's a Verizon issue (TW is Verizon only) coupled with how the TF companies handle their branded devices.

    No surprise. SL is a TF company and so is SM. The SIM-lock sees a TF brand SIM.

    Your account is set for Android VVM which doesn't work with iOS.

    Well, no.

    But the same phone you would use to call and talk to a CSR will work. The point was you don't have to talk to a CSR and fight the language barrier.

    See what I quoted from bobdevul...

    It's over the phone. Call, select activate, speak/punch in numbers asked, and done. No human interaction.

    You don't have to talk to a rep. There's an automated system. Just punch in the numbers.

    The cell signal tools work fine for me w/ location off on 9.0. Just limits some functionality.

    Google has changed some things over time, in the name of security. I believe this is one of them.

    Has nothing to do with the phone being paid for.

    Just was it used in Verizon post paid at all.

    Not sure when they started flagging devices, but they hit the MVNOs with high surcharges.

    <power> + <vol down> still works as it has for a long time (at least 4.x)

    Many other devices have the 3 finger gesture.

    Yes you can transfer the bundle and all other airtime to a BYOP.

    I assume your old BYOP was ATT or TMO since you couldn't reactivate the old SIM.

    LOL. This is TF after all.

    There's stuff still broken after years. Just look at the issues transferring to a new device. After 20 years they still have problems, maybe even worse since the advent...

    2 negatives in 6 months? Not particularly bad.
    And both relate to devices.

    Odd. Plenty ordered that there and got l there carriers. Maybe you selected the wrong item.

    I walk into Best Buy and similar stores and buy SIM kits. Never an issue with missing carriers.

    So where did you get the kit and only get an ATT SIM?

    Just buy a 3 carrier SIM kit for $1 and transfer to the desired carrier

    Not worth returns vs $1.

    Not that I'd ever choose TMO over ATT.

    Even at $10 it's a bargain versus what we paid before.

    The messages are the communication between the VM server and the phone. Normally the OS intercepts those messages and acts on them (get new message, delete message, etc) so you never see them.

    Phone number changes generally don't require a new SIM. Porting in and reassigning can be iffy but it has improved since 2015. Some CSRs don't know how to do it.

    Pretty sure if you activate on TF with the IMEI and included SIM it is being rebranded.

    Under $5/mo for a VoIP line with nation wide unlimited calls.

    Wasn't long ago that you couldn't even get unlimited local for twice that.
