    As long as you've got a carrier number (i.e. a line of service) that you forward GV calls to (and is required for GV to do that and to function), anyone else in the world can call that carrier...

    If this is not your only experience at that location with either T-Mobile or one of its MVNOs, was signal strength ever better?

    I don't know the HTC's characteristics, but I'd want to know what...

    Not happy about this, but what can one do? Deal with it as needed, I suppose. If I get hit with a phone call by a number I don't recognize (and I won't typically answer), if I'm curious about...

    I'm sure WhatsApp only works between like installed apps. It isn't an SMS replacement app like, say, Textra that works over the carrier voice/text network portion.

    Probably what happens is a...

    With the rationale put forth by Google about this, I wonder how "the Carrier" could distinguish between any old SMS text forwarded to a user versus that notification text about voicemail. Seems as...

    Just re-read Google's message to me.

    It does not specifically mention the notification text. Emphasis in the message (from the subject line on down) is on the forwarding of the message that...

    If you are always connected via cell phone data or Wi-Fi, then, no, this would serve no purpose for you.

    But I'm not, and I rely on this feature to assure that I get an SMS text (or at least a...

    If one party doesn't have RCS working it should revert to standard SMS. Very much like iMessage works (No blue? Then green).

    A postpaid VZW phone will, if it's in good standing (not having been reported stolen or bill in arrears, other wrinkles, etc.). Prepaid VZW, no. The upfront purchase terms have to be met (either time...

    In the pre-LTE days to change phones (keeping same line/account) you'd call or chat to do the ESN/MEID change. There was never a web form to initiate it. With PPC, unlike TracFone, they didn't have...

    I'll have to read the message again to see if the notification text message is being treated the same as the message with the transcription. Didn't catch that first time around. Certainly hope that's...

    I don't think we should assume RIMDHoward got a Google Voice number, although his OBI dashboard shows two connections (SP1 & 2).

    Speaking of which, normally you would have only ONE of the two...

    Check to see that you've got either Wi-Fi or cellular data on, but be careful with cell data as it will drain your PAYGO balance quickly. Shouldn't be a problem here.

    Good news for sure. Yours is the latest breaking report on this subject, as far as here in HoFo goes.

    I'm on PPC with a Fiesta 2, and my sister and her husband are on TracFone with the same model...

    This is a very interesting development.

    In your testing, did you send a message that you could more or less verify was transported via data, thus around the SMS system, and neither of your...

    @Yeswap: That's what I get for attempting to comment in the wee hours of the morning when I'm half asleep. You are, of course, correct. I should've double-checked what I was trying to write about.

    Yeah. A lot of overthinking going on.

    I think one of the reasons for TF to come out with these new plans is that, either for the convenience of the traditional TF user that runs into a period...

    An additional issue with the Model 6 right now is (if it at all matters) that the coming transition to the introduction of version 13.x.x of iOS will not be including it. So if you're just carrying...

    In looking around the GV control interfaces (app and web) this morning I discovered a couple things I thought I'd share, and maybe get some comments on.

    Looking at it over the time since the GV app gained it's own VoiP capability, it seems to me that the "Devices and numbers" area is supposed to be all-inclusive. Devices referring to data-accessible...

    Sometimes (often?) with a typical TPU case they'll have a finish option that looks like carbon fiber, but is actually just a finish look. Like matte as opposed to glossy.
