    They sold the DMFL and the 1 year DMFL cards until fairly late. I think there was a disclaimer on the card or website that using one on an already DMFL phone would add no features.

    Yes, the Simple Mobile website lists the Galaxy S20 5G. It does say "5G Coverage not available in all areas". Straight Talk and Safelink list the more expensive Galaxy S20+ 5G. These would all be on...

    Yes, the Nokia 2600 was the replacement for the Nokia 5125 TDMA/analog model. I got a 5125 in 2002, and don't think it got double minutes. Those also had a "home" network, and you paid 2X if roaming...

    There is no 5G service from any carrier on the Tracfone companies right now. Might come about if Verizon is able to buy Tracfone, but too early to tell.

    Similar experience here with my neighbor on Sprint, which made me think twice about suggesting the "T-Mobile Network Experience" change. The area they travel most is better with T-Mobile, but the...

    Time to try swapping the active SIM card into the Pixi Glitz. You are looking for a 890141 for AT&T. Size needs to match, and most of the older phones use a Micro SIM. Cards for the older...

    Is the donor phone broken? The Pixi Glitz is a poor quality phone, so I was wondering the reason for an effort to use one.

    Yep, the single bucket phones used Parameter Codes in the firmware for how things got charged. Until fairly late the CSRs could not read any of these codes remotely, and would ask you to put them in...

    The warranty is with Tracfone, not the manufacturer or dealer. You will need to supply them with a dated proof of purchase. Not sure how this is handled with a bundle purchase if a refund is...

    The special SIM is provided at a Sprint/TMO store.

    Activated my BYOP phone in July 2018 and it got the extra offers. A few months later they were gone, so it happened about this time 2 years ago. Convinced they are eliminating the Promo codes now, as...

    I don't think the whole whitelisting system between Verizon and the MVNOs is well understood. My guess is they will leave TF phones locked down as they are to stop migrations. There is still the...

    Use the compatibility checker on the Tracfone website. Activation on the Verizon network requires a VoLTE capable phone that is on their approved whitelist.

    I only have an ad blocker in Chrome, and it can be left on.

    If you use the OP's link ending with "botchat=true" it brings up a different chat dialog box than using the red flag. If you close that...

    A concern here is getting off the Tracfone Wireless companies if things go sour pending possible Verizon changes. If a TF branded phone is not on the Verizon whitelist, it may not activate on another...

    I believe T-Mobile stopped non-VoLTE activations back in August. Sprint had a whitelist system similar to Verizon, and TMO may have brought that over to deal with incompatibility issues.

    I am surprised AT&T would allow hotspot on any MVNO. They don't allow much of anything.

    No Tracfone Wireless model is whitelisted for direct Verizon service. If a "DL" model does really unlock for AT&T or T-Mobile, it would be a good thing for those users to go somewhere else if Verizon...

    You can use a TF branded phone SIM in a BYOP Verizon branded phone if it's unlocked. I assume you can also do this with a TF activated SIM in an AT&T or T-Mobile BYOP phone, but have no experience....

    A big issue is that the Tracfone Wireless branded phones (even unlocked) are limited to that system. They are not whitelisted by Verizon. Verizon may not want to deal with that, and might leave the...

    Do you mean using an active SIM from a Tracfone branded phone? Branded phone SIMS can be used on non-branded BYOP phones, but not sure if using them on other TF branded phones. Branded phones do have...

    The most common term for VoLTE is "Enhanced 4G LTE Mode". Some will list it as "VoLTE" and Verizon branded phones will say "Advanced Calling". Can Umidigi phones access the *#*#4636#*#* INFO menu?

    AT&T 3G will stay running until 2022. T-Mobile may have already stopped 3G activations. A TF/AT&T BYOP SIM should still activate, and may work OK in a 3G phone. You don't have to give the phone...
