    Putting a micro SD in a phone does not automatically format it. It should have whatever was on it before. You can format it easily in the new phone if you don't need what was on it.

    That would be a good thing to try. It doesn't clear anything you need.

    If clearing cache doesn't work, I would do a factory reset without app and settings backup and reinstall only the apps I...

    I just looked at my retired Verizon branded Galaxy S4. It does not have a SIM in it. It says Phone number: unknown. I don't recall if I did a factory reset on it.

    I had the same issue with my Moto G6. The only gallery app it comes with is Google Photos. Grrrrrrrrr, way to complicated and fiddly. All I want is something to see my pictures, delete some, and send...

    I have had PDANet work for USB tethering when Wifi hotspot would not, though not on Total.

    I'm surprised that a Pixel has a carrier locked hotspot. I thought the Pixels were carrier agnostic.

    No phone cord came with my refurb box. Any ordinary phone cord works. Aside from the RJ plug they are about as low-tech as it gets.

    What do you think is fake about 5G on 600 MHz?...

    What do you think is fake about 5G on 600 MHz? The fact that it will not do Gbps does not make it fake. Gbps is not a requirement or design goal of 5G where the bandwidth is not available.

    Verizon's statement about CDMA availability is that it will continue until the end of 2020, but only AS-IS, WHERE-IS. They have not installed any CDMA for years and repair/replace of...

    The $20 refurbs come and go being available - no way to know when. Check occasionally over days-weeks if you can afford to wait. Otherwise, $30 more for a new one isn't much for something that will...

    Yes, it remains to be seen how much they tie it into being plugged in a car OBD. My speculation is that it is locked down tight. Someone should try it.

    The power pins are 5-ground and 16-power.
