    Thanks for your help, everyone.

    hpham: definitely no desire to "download update files from some unofficial site." I just wasn't sure if a VPN would handle all traffic, or just browser traffic. If...

    Senkoboy, yes it would seem so. They seem to requie one's phone number to create an account, though.

    hapollo8, thanks for your help. A VPN service is a good suggestion. I would imagine Google account is required to use such a service, as one must begin by downloading the VPN app. Perhaps some VPN...

    Thanks, whacker and others.

    Does Android update itself "better," "smoother," or "easier" if none of it's settings have been altered, or services disabled, prior to updating?

    I'm mainly asking if TF will accept a TW phone that has already been used on TW, particularly when it contains the same SIM as was already used on TW. I've worded this better in my prior post, so...

    Brian VT, will TF accept the phone if it's NOT yet unlocked, and was used on TW for 30 days? If so, can I use the original SIM, or do I have to use a new TF BYOP SIM? Would TF unlock the phone in...
