    Another vote for not buying a Boost phone. Likely too locked down to use for other service. 12 months of service before unlock available. The price you pay for the discounted initial purchase cost.

    That is the method the OP used, which has to be done every time USB is connected. They were looking for a new default setting to use MTP instead of Charging. This is in the Developer options setting...

    Could you roam with Boost before? Since before the merger, Sprint customers have been able to roam on T-Mobile IF you had a compatible phone. It's a ticking clock without a face being on the Sprint...

    Some phones don't show features in the Settings menus unless the network has them active. Not grayed out, just not there. Motos are like that. I have a cheap Acatel that was on T-Mobile that shows...

    I see the same thing in my area. A couple of years ago they started using mostly B66, and the signal strength went down a lot. They then added B5 which does not have a lot of capacity. Seldom see B13...

    A lot of people will not change phones until the old one stops working. Not knowing when the Sprint network will end, it might be best to wait until there is later news. Sounds like the usage is not...

    Think the voice portion of this unit is more like VoIP. VoLTE uses a special channel within LTE called IMS, while VoIP uses the Internet. Not all 4G LTE devices are capable of VoLTE. It was...

    Total Wireless does not appear to support data only devices. To activate with a TW BYOP SIM would require a VoLTE device, which your T1114 is not. You might be able to run one with an already...

    An example might be how T-Mobile shut down the MetroPCS CDMA network in 2015. Seems it was closed in chunks. Verizon has not been seen to shut down it's CDMA network early, although there are some...

    Could be that T-Mobile does not want head-to-head competition with other carriers, or to compete with their own retail stores. Could also be that Best Buy does not want to deal with the complexities...

    Eventually all former Sprint and Boost customers will be migrated to operating on the new T-Mobile network. That requires a lot more system integration, and there is no official timetable so far....

    Only available in the few areas that will have Ultra Wideband coverage. It's never going to be a viable option for the vast majority of customers looking to replace cable broadband.

    The Airave uses an Internet connection, so how would that be different than WiFi calling? Yes, T-Mobile no longer provides a similar device. The Verizon Jetpack works the same.

    Some Apple stores had reopened a few weeks ago in my greater area, but seem to have locked down again. There seems to be no way to make an appointment for an in-store "Genius Support" session.

    So, the warranty is a ticking clock from the original registration with Apple. They seem not to care about the history since the original owner. Seems stupid that Tracfone does not have this...

    T-Mobile seems to be on a fast track to close out non-VoLTE service. No new activations starting in August and 2G/3G end in January. Would think Boost/Dish would be affected, being planned to run on...

    Sending an MMS to a Tracfone is different than to another phone running on Verizon using @vzwpix.com. A good number of years ago it was changed to @mypixmessages.com. Here is a conversation from 2017...
