    Where did they sell off landline service? They still own almost the entire system in California which came from the old Pacific Bell. My U-verse Internet comes over those wire lines.

    Verizon BYOP activation depends on the IMEI, while AT&T BYOP depends on the SIM number.

    I don't see the SIM number in my account, only the IMEI and phone number. I don't see that knowing the SIM number is important, only a match between the IMEI and phone number.

    It does sound like the phone was not unlocked from a Verizon account. Could be lost, stolen, account fees not paid, not spending the time in service to be unlocked. I would return it if possible.

    Yes, dialing the *#*#4636*#*# INFO menu will show if you have an LTE voice connection and can be set there. Agree you can get into trouble with some of the dialing codes, but *#*#4636*#*# should be...

    My active BYOP phone shows the IMEI and phone number in the website account. SIM is for VZW service.

    I tried Droid Transfer/Transfer Companion. Was a bit hard to configure, but does work in saving text messages (and other things). You have to use .pdf format to save an MMS...did not try that yet....

    Yep, the Moto fusion+ is not a US model. Not complete for AT&T, poor for T-Mobile, and unusable on Verizon or Sprint.

    All mobile phones AFAIK have a way to get to a maintenance menu using the Power and Up/Down buttons. The sequence does vary by manufacturer and maybe by specific model. The user guides for Android...

    The Moto fusion+ is without CDMA and the essential LTE B13 for Verizon service. Unusual for an unlocked Moto phone sold in the US.

    You must have done a factory data reset, which wipes out anything you did with the phone since new. Did the contacts list reinstall after putting the Google account back in? Did you use the Power and...

    Wonder if AT&T will also join the trend of sharing IMEI registration on an open database? This will sure put a crimp on Tracfone users of "GSM" networks to so easily activate a SIM. Not as easy to...

    The T-Mobile SIM is registered with that phone's IMEI, and other carriers/providers know that. To activate another SIM you need to use a different IMEI and phone number. This used to be only an issue...

    No carrier is going to allow a phone's IMEI to be used on two different services at the same time. You would need to have an activated SIM card from another phone to change service at will. That's...

    Why wait to replace, when a new phone will be cheaper to operate and have better voice quality?

    It is not about TF T-Mobile activation, but using an activated TF/VZW SIM in a phone already activated directly in T-Mobile service.

    The GSMA database may go beyond just lost/stolen, and to more detail about what service a phone is tied to. I always assumed the "ESN checker" sites used something like this. Both carriers and MVNOs...

    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 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.
