    Moto g7 Optimo Maxx gone crazy!

    moto g7 optimo maxx started(I don't know why) an emergency/throbbing sound (like the one similar to the sound you hear when someone breaks into a store, but not as loud)... and wouldn't shut up, even after 2 restarts and a factory reset...
    any help if you can ... thanks

    Do you have Amber Alerts or Severe Weather Alerts on?

    Is it the old "phone off the hook sound"? If so, I haven't heard that sound for a long time (no longer have a landline).

    yes an OOma i have for over 10 years which I use as an answering machine... and never use the TF for that, and now that it is sold, I don't know what the future hold.
    I will never pay for what the other phone services charge... specially that I prefer using email more, even though I still have about a decade worth of service and minutes with TF.
    I don't like using the phone, yet I kept getting more and more deals in the last few years.

    Two restarts and a factory reset wouldn't disconnect the call?
    I'm glad telemarketers/spammers haven't got that idea yet!!

    Tracfone has not been sold (to Verizon). That is a proposed deal that wouldn't happen until sometime next year. It is also not a sure thing that the deal will pass anti-trust review by the DOJ. Still the future of TF is somewhat uncertain.

    Carlos Slim is 80-something and very rich. Maybe he believes that MVNOs don't have good prospects in the coming years.

    I think MVNOs are fine if they are run properly, which Tracfone isn't.

    Carlos doesn't exactly look like the picture of health. He might not even be all that smart. His father started the family business.

    I think Carlos just wants to lessen his business headaches generally and go with something else.

    Verizon has more experience running a business with U.S. customer expectations. Not that Verizon is problem-free, but it's likely to run something more logical and organized. I think they also think more profitable.

    I'd give Carlos more credit than that. His father taught him about business, but he did not inherit a "family business" from his father. He built his conglomerate and wealth himself.

    I'm sure there's more to the story.

    The TF-USA sale to VZW is less than 10% of AM worldwide cellular business. I think Carlos wants out because of the way minority/foreign owned businesses are now & will be treated near future in the USA. TF-USA is a cash cow & Carlos has done an excellent job maximizing profit at TF. VZW will do worse with TF.
