    Starting with Android 8.0 Oreo, there is an automatic cache cleaning process that avoids accumulated buildups in the cache partition. This does not zero out the cache like a manual clearing does, but...

    How much spam did the landline get? They can be pretty terrible. I had a bad one, and did not transfer the number when it was dropped to use cell service only. Different when you have an old line...

    There are TN SIMS listed on eBay. Seems they are discouraging BYOD, and want you to buy a branded phone. Does Boost (or Sprint) require the phone's IMEI to activate, or do they identify by model...

    1 year add-on in the cart is only available for TF branded phones.

    Is the ringing tone for an incoming call more conventional? Do only the attached handsets ring, or does the base station also? How about a busy signal? A 300 Hz tone is kind of weird.

    Yes, cable was a better Internet choice. DSL (U-verse) needs a fiber backbone that AT&T is often reluctant to install. It also runs a lot slower than cable. I live on one of the main streets in town,...

    I wish you had looked first, as there is a thread on this subject at the top of the list.

    The phone may have CDMA capability, but it could be the account may not be provisioned for anything but LTE. Verizon never used 3G for voice anyway, just for EV-DO data. The voice channel is 2G...

    I wonder how they decide who goes when? There is still the issue of some incompatible phones, and what offers might be made for those customers. Same with some Sprint customers too.

    It amazes me that so many seem to have Internet service in outer places that have poor cellular service. Do they have cable or what? Not true here, where cable ends just outside of town and there is...

    I don't think the LG Classic Flip has CDMA (1x/3G) radios for Verizon, thus the network error message. The MyFlip is also 4G LTE only. These might work on AT&T or T-Mobile 3G.

    Recently seen at Walmart. $50 and runs on Verizon. Model is K500HPEL. I assume it's to replace the ZTE?

    Yes, AT&T will have to open up VoLTE for everyone sometime before they shut down 3G. T-Mobile has been requiring VoLTE on new activations for a while. It has shown up after the T-Mobile/Sprint merger...

    I assume everybody was still running on Sprint before the sale? Seems like WiFi calling would be a feature after a transition to T-Mobile, as they allow it with other MVNOs.

    Were you planning on activating this phone? It is a GSM 2G model that may only run on T-Mobile now, and that may stop end of this year.

    Neither Sprint nor T-Mobile has good service in many outer areas. The two highways that come into town vary in coverage between these carriers. That may improve with further tower integration, but in...

    There has to be a tower connection for e911, as Serial Port stated. WiFi is worthless for determining your location, and much the same for the tower location you are using. That is why a physical...

    Does this phone show in your online account with the correct phone number? T-Mobile also says WiFi Calling needs to be associated with an e911 location address. No idea why this is.

    Verizon used to have some fairly decent lower priced basic phones, but they all look junky now. Overpriced too, like the $100 Alcatel Go Flip 5 which you can buy much the same model from Tracfone for...
