    I have been noticing more Google Play services battery use too, and also Carrier Services. Surprisingly, Android System and Screen have not been listing. Moto G5 Plus on Oreo.

    Thanks for the conformation that you can again activate on CDMA! That gives 4 more months to get the old phones activated before the curtain closes, then another year of service.

    Verizon stopped activation of non-VoLTE phones for their own customers in July 2018, and extended MVNO activations to April 2019. When they recently pushed out the close of CDMA to end of 2020, it...

    Is this a Verizon branded E4 on Tracfone using a 3rd party unlock code and swapped SIM? If so, VZW should have not have recognized it for system updates.

    If the Verizon CDMA shutdown had happened end of this year, the phone would have quit working while on warranty. With the pushed out shutdown date that will not be an option to force them to take...

    I remember the Huawei Sensa H710VL discussion. The phone lies to the network that it is VoLTE, so is allowed to run on a VoLTE provisioned account. I would expect it to quit when CDMA is shut off.

    Would be hard these days to find a Tracfone model without VoLTE capability. Phones like the LG Rebel 1 and Samsung Galaxy Luna are getting pretty old.

    I agree with hpham that the SIM swap might be detected by the network. Users on other Tracfone companies have reported this.

    The "VL" model user guides (especially older) TF provides can be poor for determining VoLTE. The terminology can also differ between manufacturers. VoLTE, Advanced Calling, Enhanced 4G LTE. Sometimes...

    Nobody knew when VoLTE capable models first came out, as it was well before VoLTE was available on Tracfone in around mid-2018. The J3 Sky may have been the first.

    Yes, many are waiting to see if the PayGo balances kick back in after the UL times out. Also if the UL data is lost, or goes into the PayGo data bucket.

    Looked like it might be a battery drain, so I toggled it off.

    Thanks for telling us about it! I have no need for it either, and was concerned it might interfere with "Messages for web" in the Google Messages app. That does a good job of accessing the phone's...

    I would be more concerned with data use, which can also use some battery.

    Have you actually tried this? You need to be both WiFi and Bluetooth connected. It will not deal with MMS messages. "You must link your Android phone to your PC through Your Phone app." Huh? It's...

    Yes, locked Verizon prepaid phones are too difficult to deal with. The lock down started with the Moto G4 Play about 3 years ago. 3rd party unlock codes did work on those, but there was no GSM option...

    With "Messages for web", the computer acts like a remote terminal of the phone. It does need to connect to the phone using WiFi or cell data. Same as an MMS message and the new RCS Chat.

    Yes, VZWINTERNET is the default APN in Tracfone service. Must have changed by using a GSM SIM, maybe if the Preferred Network Type was set to Global. Surprised you even have a CDMA only setting in...

    You might have to install the update to see the source. I doubt it came from VZW, as normally they would not know that SIM swapped phone was on their service.

    Are you sure the update came from VZW? Usually Moto phones get these directly from Motorola Mobility.

    It is because it's a prepaid phone without carrier unlocking, but the 3rd party unlock codes used to counter that. Apparently there is now a further probe by the network to see if the account/SIM...
