    Experiences with combining balances on Tracfone lines

    My favourite call centers are in Georgetown British Guiana and Jamaica (they sometimes claim California) Icing on the cake when you can hear the baby crying or yard chickens in the background! The Filipinos' speech patterns bug me ("for this one") even more than the Indians... But let me say...

    AT&T Turbo Add-on?

    Try Consumer Cellular or Pure Talk and H2o Wireless for a month maybe save a bunch of money Unless you **want** to pay more for the "turbo" option Personally I doubt it will make a difference too often

    The points might get added but if they also actually make that followup call I will be gobsmacked

    Currently trying out Vegolink SIM Pro - an international data roaming service

    That website is VERY inconsistent when it comes to relevance, accuracy, writing quality of articles. And I am wording that as nicely as I can. I've completely blocked it from all my feeds.

    buy device unlocked or from mvno who says their are unlocked?

    Well, if you know you want to use the device specifically on that network then it does not matter so much. From the manufacturer is where factory unlocked applies. Providers usually sell the variant specific to that network, and they set the rules for when it gets unlocked, usually after some...

    buy device unlocked or from mvno who says their are unlocked?

    Well that is the network almost guaranteed to be compatible with even the low end the "factory unlocked" models, whether purchased from the mfg, retail like Best Buy, or off eBay secondhand. Get to know the precise model number for that variant so you can confirm you aren't buying an AT&T or...

    Is its SIM on a plan that supports hotspot usage? That works using other devices?

    buy device unlocked or from mvno who says their are unlocked?

    To bring it down to earth. A provider will only sell unlocked phones at a high price if outright or "subsidize" it over a long term payout as bill credits. Please link to any exceptions. Also, the "factory unlocked" phonea sold by the mfg or others is often a different model from the...

    tracfone no service after transferring balance from another tracfone

    The appropriate market niche here is Very Low Data consumption, say 3-5 GB/mo avg on the high end. The new UNL T&T annual bundles help a lot for convenience, and keeping the cost below $10/mo is nice and frugal. The very few "easy rollover forever" providers offer a UNIQUE advantage for those...

    SIM tied to IMEI?

    Just be aware, whatever the reasons for SIM swapping other than saving a dollar If the pairing was from a bundled phone, some of TF's systems will treat that completely differently from lines initialised via a BYOP SIM kit. The TF system will often show the correct "newly SIM swapped" device...

    tracfone no service after transferring balance from another tracfone

    ooh good to know, tx for the data point I have a shelf full of annual bundles ready to go, maybe 6x ATT legacy lines with plenty of years, but they need the 24GB data

    tracfone no service after transferring balance from another tracfone

    MobileX gives you that on VZW, at $2/mo base plus $2.10/GB T&T choices are UNL or PayGo as you prefer or none if Data-only is preferred. To compare gFi Flex has up to 4x data only SIMs per voice SIM, but base charge is $20 for UNL and pooled data at $10/GB, on TMO not really competitive...

    Tracfone Rewards Program

    Refurb phones often are simply not eligible for AAL if that device already got used for that before. They won't do anything for you manually in that case

    Port out info?

    I think most no, some maybe TCL Flip 2 T408DL Make offers, ideally for multiple to make it worthwhile, and cut down on your shipping cost per unit

    moto g stylus 5G (2023)

    Do you have evidence that ATT even bought into that model for Cricket? If so it usually is pretty concurrent with the base model release
