    Although I just looked through AT&T's site and they claim they only throttle during periods of congestion on the unlimited plans, which the Walmart plan is not. So I don't know. Very confusing.
    Ultimately, if the tower is busy Prepaid will lose, regardless of plan.

    The only thing that I can think of is people who are so tight that they return the phone to Wal-Mart to get the device money back -- those IMEIs may be attached to the plan and so they'd cancel out the bonus data for giving them the reach-around. Is that possibly a common denominator?

    I returned the cheap At&t flipper the day after the bonus showed up and have now had my plan renew 3 times without any problems.

    Except in that picture above, the tower obviously isn’t busy.

    The same thing happens to me sometimes lately, although it’s getting better.

    I can get speeds like that or worse then cycle airplane mode and get 150+ Mbps. I think there’s some kind of network issue going on. Deprioritization wouldn’t get solved by cycling the radio, and it shouldn’t happen on a site that has that much excess capacity.

    Busy is probably determined by ATT. I see what you are saying, but we are at their mercy.

    Umm. I think it’s somewhat humerous the iPhone X with abysmal speeds is showing 5Ge up top while the speedy one says LTE (4G). Quite possibly they’re locked onto towers on different spectrum and the “5Ge” is overloaded? If so, not something to be bragging about.

    Does the 6T work fully with sim card and wrong imei in the account??

    Or do you have to constantly check imei on the account to see if it switched back and change it again?

    Tia,

    It has continued working fully functional for months with the wrong imei in the account. Today I upgraded to Oxygen (Android) 10 and it took about 20 minutes for me to get LTE service again. But once I did VoLTE was back and working.

    The only time I've had to go back and reenter the imei is if i swapped SIM cards to another phone.

    Thanks so much for your response. I just got a Samsung Fold and put the sim card in it. All is working as expected, will just go back and put the original Wally phone imei like you did.

    Where do you see in the account once you load a prepayment refill card to the account. When I entered it, it said $50 credit to the account posted where do I see it.

    Thanks,

    The Balance & Details link on the home page or the Plans section and it's at the top of the page.

    Planned renewed last night and got text today of renewal with no hitches. Now I wait to see if I get the extra gb data.

    Right now it shows the following:

    Next payment Dec 18 due to a $10 credit left over from the refill $50 card I uploaded before renewal. They gave me a $10 credit for a total of $60.00 credits on the account and then they took out $50.00 from the credit leaving me with $10 credit. Funny way how they do that renewal discount but it is the same.

    As for data now, here is what it says:

    Promotion: 17gb(No rollover) 7.9gb of 17gb remaining expiring on 11/24/19???

    Plan dataIncludes 7.9 gb rollover data) 15.9 gb of 15.9gb remaining

    I must have carried over 7.9gb of data from last month to get 15.9gb????? Now wait to see if I get addtl bonus 17gb offer in the next 2-3 days.

    Note the account has the Sammy phone imei but, the sim card is in the Samsung Fold phone since I got the original bonus 17gb of data.

    Does ATT take eSIM for prepaid plan? If yes, can we transfer this plan to eSIM and keep plan intact.

    Yes, you might have a hard time getting the QR activation card from some AT&T stores (Apple Stores seem to give them out for free and without question). To use it, you scan the unique QR code on your phone, to "add" the line and then go into My Device > Update Device on the account manager and enter the ICCID from the QR activation card to move service from a physical SIM to the eSIM. I've had this set up since September and the plan and promo have renewed without issue.
