    There may not be a dedicated AT&T SIM card unless Dish ends their MVNO agreement with T-Mobile. Could be that AT&T will only be used for roaming if T-Mobile is still the primary carrier. This may...

    It used to be fairly difficult changing carriers on Tracfone. You had to convince them you had no service with the carrier the phone came with. They would also often say the phone was not capable,...

    You can get some lousy CS experiences from the major carriers too. Has been a problem with Verizon Prepaid for years, especially in the retail stores. Not sure what is going to happen with Tracfone...

    My SafeLink free phone was a very cheap Alcatel, and ran on T-Mobile. Ok at home in town, but worthless just a few miles away. You can change the phone, but not sure about changing carriers.

    Dish/Boost should have been aware from the get-go that T-Mobile would shut down Sprint CDMA ASAP. What has Boost done to get users off of Sprint CDMA? Actually, T-Mobile has not done much to get it's...

    The government regulators only cared about Dish building out a new 5G network. Not using existing spectrum to operate on a 4G network. Dish was only using an existing LTE network as a stopgap to 5G....

    Dish likely did not get that good a deal from AT&T. There must be something going on in the background that would cause Dish to seek another carrier alliance. Boost users are going to have to get off...

    Actually, just about all discussions with government regulators so far have been focused on Lifeline. Verizon has only agreed to a 3 year commitment, and I am not sure if that has been hard coded in...

    Dish paid 1.4 billion for Boost. I assume there are also ongoing costs to run as an MVNO on the T-Mobile network.

    Yep, AT&T can provide no support for the Boost users relying on the Sprint CDMA network. 2G/3G phones have to be replaced no matter what. Nowhere to go anyway with the falling support on all CDMA...

    Video calling does not work on Verizon MVNOs. WiFi calling may only work on iPhone. Yes, the INFO menu works on Moto phones, but I think not on Samsung phones.

    At least it might help the coverage issues that many have with T-Mobile. That is IF you have a phone with enough bands to run on all these networks. Already has been a problem with some Sprint/Boost...

    I had Century Link DSL on copper wire, but only because I was just a couple of blocks from the fiber terminal box. I now have wired DSL with AT&T, and don't think they will hook it up for new...

    I switched over to smartphone cards when they first came out. They were a much better value, except for service time. By then I had accumulated a lot of service time, so never considered it. I only...

    Widely reported that Sprint had VoLTE only in some areas. T-Mobile is not going to upgrade that network.

    I have AT&T DSL in my 12K population town. Only other choice is cable or expensive severely capped line-of-sight fixed wireless. The DSL is only offered in town areas that have a fiber trunk. Outside...

    The problem is not so much with the Moto E4 being VoLTE capable, as it is the Sprint network not having VoLTE. Reports indicate it will run on VoLTE on other carriers. Your present plan locks you to...

    Same problems on the Verizon CDMA network too as they stop supporting it before the shutdown. You need to have a T-Mobile compatible VoLTE phone to get off Boost/Sprint CDMA. I doubt they are going...

    I doubt mmWave is going to do much for you if the LTE service is that minimal inside a building. Verizon should spend more on improving regular service, rather then riding this mmWave bandwagon.

    Hotspot still works with my TF/VZW BYOP Moto G5+ running Android 8.0. Slower than it used to, but Verizon has been mucking with the frequency bands lately.

    850 employees in the USA seems excessive for the Miami based Tracfone Wireless operation. Some of them might be America Movil employees who may go away. Yes, reliance on fairly untrained CS people...

    Maybe no infrastructure changes for Verizon, however a lot of complications managing the numerous TF companies. They are going to need to pare down the choices, and that is the scary part for some...

    Cant' you still get the 365 day service extension for $49.99 if you have a TF branded phone? Everything else can be bought separately.

    A company owned MVNO is what Verizon wants, just like AT&T's Cricket and T-Mobile's Metro. Question is what are they going to keep of the Tracfone Wireless companies? They already had Prepaid, and...

    In my Motos the LTE symbol in the Status Bar stays lit during a call if VoLTE is turned on, and greys out if VoLTE is turned off. Seeing the "HD" symbol in the call screen is the true indication you...
