    What you are thinking of should work. It worked for me.

    I have a HSN bundle Moto E5 with TF-Verizon service that is still locked. I took the E5 SIM and put it in my unbranded, unlocked Moto G6 and...

    Oh, I agree that probably nothing good would come of Verizon absorbing the Tracfone brands for those of us who currently use them.

    I don't think it is a slam dunk that a deal with Verizon will get...

    IIRC, a Galaxy S5 is not compatible with Verizon VoLTE. Run it through the PP BYOP activation checker.

    In your position I would consider a HSN or QVC Tracfone bundle. You can get a Moto E5 or E6...

    The Moto E5 and E6 should be in about that price range. I have an E5. I don't notice much difference from the G6.

    From what I found with a quick search, the -2 model was for Latin America. It probably won't work with Verizon and the eBay listing is incorrect. I would return it.

    [Edit] Nevermind. You said dual...

    Yes, T-Mobile has been building out their network. They went from zero signal inside my home to solid, but slow, in the past year. They are still primarily an urban and major highway network. Out in...

    The Boost founder is a trouble maker. He tried to mess with the T-Mobile/Sprint deal too. I expect Verizon can handle him.

    Yeah, I recall when Verizon bought Yahoo. I thought, "Why would they want Yahoo? It's a depreciated brand without a bright future."

    That said, I still use Yahoo Finance for business and market...

    What is the model number from Settings?

    Mine is XT1925-6 and works fine with Tracfone-Verizon and Freedompop-AT&T.

    A true factory unlocked US model Moto G6 should work on all three big carriers plus Sprint. I have used mine with Tracfone-Verizon and Freedompop-AT&T.

    Who knows what was being sold on FleaBay....

    The Z723EL has LTE bands 2,4,12,13. 4 and 12 are compatible with T-Mo.

    I don't know if the unit is carrier locked.

    Add, Verizon bought Yahoo. Now some things that used to be free in Yahoo Finance are paid premium features.

    Should this go through, I expect that Verizon will tweak the various TF plans, features,...

    Because in the case of AT&T and T-Mobile that was what they agreed to. It was not something that the government required.

    After how that happened in the AT&T/T-Mobile case, other deals in the...

    Moto E6 is the cheapest I can think of. $99 from Moto.

    FWIW, GSM and CDMA are no longer relevant. Both are obsolete. Verizon is turning off what little is left of their CDMA at the end of the...

    Connect to the WiFi name you want to use and that is what it will use.

    If WiFi calling is too hard or you can't get it to work, you can evaluate the T-Mo signal availability other ways.

    Again...

    SSID is the designation of the name of a WiFi access point. The SSID of your hotspot apparently is Franklin. The docs that came with the hotspot should say what the SSID name and password are. It...

    This from Verizon indicates that it is all of the Tracfone brands.

    In the grand scheme of news this is not huge. I...

    Yeah, I waited more than 6 months. The web form says no because I am already a T-Mo customer. I'm not unless they are counting my free 200 MB a month tablet SIM, which they didn't last time.

    That was not my experience here. There was band 12 here before band 71 was turned on and I got zero T-Mo signal at my house. Since band 71 was turned on last December I get solid, but not fast, T-Mo...
