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

    I do not provide the device information because I do not have the device yet, therefore no brand name, no model number, no IMEI; any new smartphone buy is in the planning only; have not bought a new device except for more than three years ago and that part does not count anymore, since was...

    PaulCrawhorne, Your post talking about "factory unlocked" made me try a quick online search and some information seems encouraging: https://thegadgetbuyer.com/what-does-factory-unlocked-mean-on-a-phone/ I certainly believe when I bought my unlocked smartphone from the manufacturer a few years...

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

    Maybe in regard to post #3, IF I would make a decision and buy an unlocked device from the device manufacturer, I could use the IMEI checker on the mvno's website and check the IMEI number with that mvno provider. I believe I did that a few years ago; but I now cannot remember. But the device...

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

    I thought about this question while reading the thread here: https://www.howardforums.com/threads/is-phone-locked.1929860/post-17275077 Some mvno's tell prospective customers when asked that they sell unlocked devices. Also one can find a device through smartphone's manufacturer and many of...

    profile posts found in my account - how control these?

    I find I can view "profile posts" made onto my profile part of my account, which come from other members. Most if not all of them are trash. I find no way to delete them. Tell me how, and if not possible, why not possible? Someone then needs to adjust the way this new forum works. later...

    The mobile number itself is the target. I would guess the kind of trouble he finds is something to expect in Trac-Phone issued mobile numbers. Better, a new number through a different carrier service could be the best escape.

    Verizon to consolidate Tracfone brands, Page Plus ceasing activation's

    To @kevi My experience is that yes, the pay-as-you-go lets you spend downward for each text message; but I cannot remember if send or receive BAL spends downward of your account or not; I believe to and from 7243 for BAL is free. I have not checked too recently to confirm this.

    why not a board on forum dedicated to .... carrier....

    I would say, making dedicated boards on this forum for specific carriers, especially the well known virtual network operators would be a great idea - to INCLUDE Mint and U S Mobile and any others which are remarkable enough. I know there are some such dedicated sections already, but I just...

    email accounts and purpose of the mobile device - how many accounts?

    How many email accounts is enough or too many, to add to a smartphone/mobile device? Which email accounts to add would depend on the purpose of the device and the purpose of the email account/s; but just how many email accounts should a person use on the mobile device?

    to see listing of all my posts or content

    I looked in "My Profile" and into the tab "My Activity". I see the several recent posts or messages I made, but no way to see more of them or all of them. Is this by design or am I missing to find something? The list only goes back to 7-30-2023, and I know I made many more posts before that date.
