    Yup, finally did just that! Certainly my house is good, and pretty much anything that could be considered part of the greater Chicago metro area is solid native (as expected).

    Most of my testing has been from the same location (our house).

    Are you aware of any detailed coverage maps? You certainly have an interesting idea.

    On the other hand, this is a well-populated...
  3. LG 501c (Tracfone) - recover pictures, chipset/hardware tech specs?

    My mom has an LG 501c, which is a made-for-Tracfone 2G CDMA device. My parents were told 2G is being decommissioned, and that she needed to update to a newer phone and service, which she did. The...

    I believe it is the US version (at least that was the intent!). Purchased from Amazon, Samsung model number SM-G973UZWAXAA.

    Yes, I've tried all those (see first post in this thread).




    It is (see this post).

    Update: I just found out, with the settings I listed above, while MMS worked, mobile data did not! The vast majority of the time my wife needs the internet, she's at home, and so can use wifi. So...

    That's interesting. None of the entries in that page I linked several times have anything specified for the Bearer field. However, on my wife's old phone, the Bearer field was populated, though...

    Success! It's now working. The APN settings are actually one of the built-in defaults that come stock with the phone (see below).

    Not sure exactly how it got here, here's the long story:

    Which APN settings are you using? Or do you have a link to the ones you're using? I've tried multiple, specifically, the three listed here, in addition to the settings from the old phone.

    Cellular data is definitely turned on. Just as a sanity check, I turned off Wifi, and visited some (previously unvisited) websites. I also tried MMS with and without Wifi enabled, same result as...

    At least in my case, yes. When I first got the phone I typed the IMEI number into PPC's website, and it said something to the effect of this phone is compatible with PPC. In actuality, their...

    Thank you for that. Your experience and link, plus all the other web searching I've done, seems to suggest that the notification doesn't mean there's an actual problem; it's just an annoyance.
