    B66 is a superset of B4, and is completely compatible. It is the predominate Verizon LTE band used in my area. Not as good as B13 in my experience. You can't tell much about the signal on an iPhone,...

    You will only get HD Calling, and only with others on Verizon that have it enabled. Video and WiFi calling are reserved for Verizon customers.

    The *#*#4636#*#* test menu is a stock Android feature, but is locked out by some manufacturers. Motos often have it.

    Not just budget phones have a special VVM, app. Verizon branded Android phones all have a Verizon specific one, as do other carrier branded phones.

    I like that Motos stick with stock Android...

    Talk time can be bought at $10 for 500 minutes, which is far cheaper than any airtime card. 1 year Service time can be bought for $50, but only with TF branded phones.

    No, the TF website APN updater can accept a phone number, IMEI number, or SIM number.

    Did you try the Tracfone APN utility? Not sure how useful it is for an iPhone, with their Configuration Profiles being different than Android APNs. https://www.tracfone.com/apn

    The stock Android dialer (like Motos often have) can have a toggle for VVM, but it seems phones with a separate VVM app may not. From what I read early on, having a separate app installed will lock...

    Yep, Sprint is going to loose either way. If the merger goes through the CDMA network will be eliminated after a while, just like when T-Mo bought MetroPCS a few years ago. This will also affect...

    There is still a lot of "dataphobia". You have a certain amount of control minimizing data use. I keep data on all the time, as there are some things I want in real time. MMS, VVM, weather forecasts,...

    Would be better to use up some of those excessive call minutes using the cell network instead of GV on WiFi. Seems like you are using the computer as a hands free device, but that can be done on the...

    Yes, even the TF models have the IMEI on the removable SIM tray. On my TCL LX it is very small and lightly painted, which requires a good magnifying lens to read. The IMEI is always in the phone...

    Yep, your balances are too high for safety. There is a history of TF seeing this as fraud, and hard to prove otherwise. It's hard to get such high balances without spending a lot of money. Not the...

    Once downloaded, you can play the audio file anytime. You can also send them to various places. I sent one to an email account, downloaded it, than played it on the computer. Phone cell data off,...

    Pretty hard to not use any data on a smartphone. The basic phones also used data for some things (browsers, email, etc.), but it was charged in another way that was hidden. Most users upgrading from...

    It was mentioned in the article that there might be a tie in with Google, as they had the the technology to do this. I don't see Google wanting to do this as it would undercut their Fi service, and...

    Good point. The branded Android phones are SIM locked to the TF companies, but are iPhones?.

    Don't think I ever tested if you can you can see that a message is pending download in VVM with data off. Does it tell you to turn on data? I can't test this right now because my backup phone has run...

    Sounds like you should stay with an iPhone. You can't use the SIM in the iPhone 5 in another phone, as the account/SIM is not VoLTE enabled. You need a new SIM and they don't make those with TMFL...

    I have done factory resets on 3 inactive Android phones, and it makes them go back to setup screens for a new activation. You can't get to the normal menus to see anything.

    Tracfone has been very negligent on giving dates of a service shutdown. Better information has been released by Page Plus. There is no urgency, they just want to sell more phones now.

    If you see a message in VVM, it has already downloaded with the data charge. From what I understand there are 2 servers which talk to each other, and you can erase from either one.

    You will get the message download the next time data is turned on if it's still on the VM server. It will not if you erase it first on the server using *86.

    Sending out crappy refurbs is not as it was. They used to be pristine. My recollection may faulty, but think you used to get a 1 year warranty with a refurb. I have only bought one about 4-5 years...
