    Verizon DURAXV on AT&T

    My mother in law used to take care of my wifes uncles cell phone plans until she passed and now i am doing it - they have been using Verizon, but are older (late 60's/ early 70's) farmers who don't really like change much and use flip phones. Near as i can tell their cheapest route on postpaid verizon is $84. I am wanting to add them to my unlimited plan making it down to 45 dollars with taxes and fee's -

    I would like them to try the service but the flip phones they have currently are older non lte phones that you had to program with the *228 etc., they do have a sim card but I don't think it can be used domestically just want to double check. I would rather they try the service on the phones now just to make sure it still works as well as verizon where they go. any thoughts?

    It might work, but some features may not fully integrate with At&t. The phone will not work on LTE networks, but 911 calling will work if needed as mandated by the government. Best wishes.
    If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

    It looks like this phone only has CDMA and GSM. It will not work on AT&T. It would at least need to have WCDMA/UMTS. T shut down their GSM network over a year ago. T-Mobile has a bare bones GSM network still running, but doesn't help you here.

    OP, doesn't Verizon have a 55+ plan like T-Mobile does? Is that the $84 you came up with?

    Also, Verizon does sell an LTE flip phone (at least I saw it on their site). It should have B2 and B4, not sure about B12 which would be critical.

    thanks for the feedback sounds like i'll be trying to find the comparable phone on att (looks like they have a duraxe but not sure it's the same sturdiness) and hoping the service works out for them.

    I was using the 2 gb plan for 35 which appears to be the cheapest for basic phones, then they add line access fees totaling 40 dollars and taxes and fees. I heard about a 55+ plan but think it is only being trialed in FL

    I see, yeah you'd have to swap those out with ones that'll work on AT&T. I use the Kyocera DuraXV+ I think, for work. Not a bad phone at all.

    There is a Buy/Sell/Trade forum page on HOFO for this type of question. This is not the correct forum for that.
