    Verizon is very conscious of what money they make with various levels of service. #1 is Postpaid, #2 is Prepaid, #3 is everything else. I am surprised they even give us HD Voice.

    I can afford a monthly plan, but don't want one. I like the Tracfone choice of buying what I need when I want to. Have not bought an airtime card in years. The cost of talk minutes is a lot cheaper...

    Yes, way to early to know what will really happen. The impression is that the Verizon buyout is a slam dunk event, but that may not be true. I hope the Federal regulators look at this in detail. FCC...

    Location determining which SIM card used to be a problem. If you had any service with a specific carrier in a ZIP code they would choose one, even if another carrier had better overall service. Years...

    What carrier you get depends a lot on which subsidiary of Tracfone Wireless you have. True that the average user or retail store employee does not know how to identify the carrier. Of the...

    Yep, one of the early thoughts on the forums after this news broke was that Verizon could make the wholesale price of service to the MVNOs too expensive to compete.

    There are about 8 million users on Tracfone Wireless that are on AT&T or T-Mobile (38%), but hard to know how many have branded phones compared to BYOP phones. I think Verizon knows this, and is not...

    That article is bunk for transitioning Tracfone users now using other carrier networks. There are reasons they are on those networks, usually reception issues.

    Switching to a Verizon account may not install Advanced Calling 2.0. I have heard of people doing that, and it did not work when putting the phone back on an MVNO.

    What happens to the non-VZW brands has been mentioned in the discussions. Only 62% of the Tracfone companies are on the Verizon network. This will likely come up in the Federal regulatory hearings.

    Agree that just running on the Verizon network does not mean you are a Verizon customer. You can't even use a TF branded handset that has been unlocked directly on Verizon. Not whitelisted.

    Verizon is listing 9 brands to be acquired. Strange, as Simple Mobile and Walmart FamilyMobile run on T-Mobile only. Safelink mostly uses T-Mobile.
