    It is a little confusing: sorry if I added to the confusion, Boz1. I was replying to Rick880's mention of a $5 FreedomPop SIM at (I believe) Target.

    To clarify: no FreedomPop SIM kit from...

    That SIM runs on the AT&T network. Most agree that it's not a good option-- and it's definitely not an option for activating the SIM on the FreedomPop Walmart Exclusive plan. (The only FreedomPop...

    Lisme, you're braver than me! I always renew a day early-- and set calendar reminders for 1 day, and 2 days, before renewal. If I know the '1 day early' will be a very busy day, I just renew 2...

    On Tello PayGo, you cannot stack days. The expiration date will always be 90 days after the last refill.
    Yes, PayGo counts as 'active service', so unused balances will roll forward if you add a...

    You can use both PayGo and monthly plans at the same time on Tello-- but it doesn't keep you from having to pay a monthly charge. My Tello line uses PayGo balance for minutes, and $5/500mb data plan...

    This is what I've done for years, too-- first, with my primary phone on the Sprint network, now on the T-Mobile network. A Verizon network phone on Tracfone gives me backup when I'm out in the...

    I also have a Tracfone TCL A3, now unlocked, and I like it quite a bit. There aren't many smaller size phone options. Once unlocked, it's eligible and decently equipped for all 3 major carriers.

    Probably not. The 3 big carriers first introduced VoLTE, on a very limited # of phones, in mid-2014.

    It's possible that the real reason was because if the replacement status, instead of because it had been activated before.
    I've unlocked several refurbs on the 60-day clock. On the old site, I...

    Somewhere, we saw a shared communique to master dealers that indicated they might stop selling non-Verizon SIMs in the retail channel very soon (technically, I believe a date already passed), and...

    I have a Samsung A01 refurb bought from the Tracfone site (with points.) It reached the 60 day mark last week, and I got an (unsolicited) text that it was now eligible to be unlocked. Trying to use...

    For the most part, with the current crop of phones for sale, selling them with Verizon SIMs is mostly just the headache of re-packaging and entering everything in their database. Tracfone decided a...

    I'm not sure this is reliable. I specifically asked support about a scenario moving a phone between brands, and was told that tracking months of usage continues across brands. In my case, I had a...

    Thanks, Boz1. I still 2 of these 400mb lines. They're on secondary emails seldom checked, so I was unaware. One of the lines has the most memorable # I've ever had, so I'll want to see about...

    I'm hesitant to comment, because I haven't dug through old threads & don't have a note on it. I don't want to point a finger without being certain. I just remember being shocked, and suggesting an...

    I'm surprised that the new site doesn't require you to enter a DOB. This had been a 'thing' on Tracfone for years, and was the one piece of personal info you absolutely could not avoid supplying to...

    Only speaking to preferences: I have both a Moto E5, and a Moto E (2020). I'm happier using the Moto E5.

    Thanks for this. That's obviously the way it -should- work. Even if voice uses LTE (VoLTE), it's not supposed to charge against data, or even to require a plan with data, or data turned on. But I...

    A guess.
    Samsung, in their infinite wisdom, has a system where provisioning info is added to the phone to enable all carrier features when a SIM is inserted. The catch is that there are 2 different...
