    US Mobile experiences?

    Unless I missed something, it looks like they just upped the cheapest plan from $72 annually to $96 annually. That does include an increase from 1GB to 2GB of data per month - not a horrible deal if you use that much, but a 33% price bump if you don't. If I recall correctly, under the old...

    Leaving Tracfone brand phones. Load up on time first?

    If you just bought it, there's no reason to be concerned. In 2016 Family Dollar had an amazingly good deal, and some folks bough a lot of them at the time. Those old SIMs are the ones we're discussing.

    Leaving Tracfone brand phones. Load up on time first?

    Has anyone used any of the Family Dollar SIMs recently? About two years ago I tried to do a transfer to a new BYOP, and wasn't able to use any of the (Verizon) SIMs from the FD deal. The chat rep had me just swap my (then current) BYOP SIM to the new phone and it worked. There was speculation...

    US Mobile experiences?

    The phone is Verizon-branded, and passed Tracfone's whitelist check several years ago. Does that suffice, or does it need to be unlocked by Verizon? Does US Mobile have an IMEI checker? Thanks!

    Tracfone Rewards Program

    If I enroll in auto-refill, how long does it take for the reward points to vest? Is it after a certain number of refills? Is there a list or formula for how many points you get for refills?

    Tracfone Rewards Program

    If you deactivate the last active line in an account (specifically port the number out), do you lose the rewards points, or can you add another line and use them?

    US Mobile experiences?

    I have a few questions, before porting to US Mobile: Can you track data usage on their website? I'd like to give someone else a phone, and monitor the data usage so I can add data as needed. How long does it take to port from another Verizon MVNO to their Verizon service (Tracfone, 4G...

    $15 unlimited talk/text with no data

    Thanks. That's what I hoped, but didn't want to try and find out. On the other hand, it's looking like if I really need to make the move to unlimited, moving to someone else like US Mobile will make more sense. BTW, AlexTrac PM'd me and actually answered the question correctly, rather than...

    $15 unlimited talk/text with no data

    I have a question about the TF $15 card for 30 days unlimited talk & text, and no data. Will this (a) still carry over data that is left over from previous months, or (b) make the line talk and text only? If (a) it seems useful for a user who does a lot of talk & text, and uses significantly...

    Which MVNO will port in a Landline # ?

    Well I finally got the port completed. The main steps that helped, and info I learned: I managed to get a phone number for Centurylink's porting/wholesale department and called them. They told me that: My most recent request showed two errors - account number and PIN The account number...

    Which MVNO will port in a Landline # ?

    Thanks for all the replies. I decided to let this request go about 10 business days to see what happens. Today (6 business days after submission) I got an email from Tello: I chatted with both Centurylink and Tello: Centurylink told me they have no record of any request...

    Which MVNO will port in a Landline # ?

    Thanks. That's the info I gave on my first attempt. And that was the one where a Centurylink rep told me (via chat): The "including the dashes" part seems to be bogus, but the rest seemed to be the most solid information I've gotten from any of their people. How long ago was your port...

    Which MVNO will port in a Landline # ?

    Thanks. You said you ported from Verizon landline, not Centurylink, correct?

    Which MVNO will port in a Landline # ?

    I am trying to port out of Centurylink. I eventually want to get to Google Voice, and I've been trying to use Tello as my intermediate provider. Can you give me any more answers on what info I need to supply for the port to work? I contacted Centurylink twice before starting to make sure I...

    What does "add a line" mean?

    Thanks! This worked. The chat agent scheduled a callback, and the callback agent took care of it. He took some time to check everything out, and he had to add the points in two transactions because of limits - but he didn't give me any run-around.

    What does "add a line" mean?

    [Sigh] So can I get them to fix it via chat?
