    That is a Tracfone/Straight Talk model. Are you sure you have looked in all of the Settings menus?

    If Hotspot is not there, and not blocked, it is unlikely that there is a work around.

    FWIW, I...

    I have one of the refurb units that I bought about six months ago. I rarely get incoming calls on it. I just tried one incoming call to test. There were no tones.

    No need has not been my experience.

    I have greatly improved the battery run time by doing this on several phones when they reached the point of a run time of only minutes or a few hours.

    Is the hotspot feature not there or there, but doesn't work?

    Generally speaking, there are no third party hotspot apps that work anymore on phones since about 2013.

    What is your phone full...

    As currently deployed 5G is no big deal. These are early days. There is a lot more to come. I see no point in dumping my perfectly adequate, one year old LTE phone for an overpriced 5G phone that...

    I had them disable voicemail on the Tello number. Nobody has that number anyway. I use my GV number for everything.

    You can disable texts to the Tello number yourself in your online account.

    I haven't seen $30 - $35 prices since Polycom bought Obihai. $40 is the best I have seen in a while, and not very often. It's hardly worth waiting for $10 off if you need one.

    If you could setup a Linksys ATA, the Obi should be no problem. The setup screens can look daunting, but the Obi instructions are very good - step by step with only a few settings to make for GV. I...

    Magic Jack, Ooma, Obi are all examples of a class of devices known as Analog Telephone Adapters (ATA). They all function the same. You connect the ATA to broadband Internet and a traditional analog...

    I expect you will like it a lot. My coverage went from none at home and spotty around town to solid everywhere when they turned on band 71 here. That is around my town. I have not checked between...

    So would I, but the original question was if it can be done without a computer for a homeless person. Chances are good that the library for public computer/Internet access is closed.

    You should be able to do it with a phone call to TF support (from another working phone). You will need the SIM number, IMEI of the phone and the PIN. These are three long number strings that have to...

    Activate the new bundle with a transfer from the existing. Your existing will be added to the bundle amounts of units and time. You can do this from your online account if you have one, but it is...

    I have used phones from 4.0 to 9. They all seem about the same to me. I touch an icon and the app starts. I spend about zero time fiddling with OS settings.

    9 has been out for a while already. I...

    I assume my library is closed. I know from past experience that their Wifi works a short way out into the parking lot. There are probably others places too - Walmart, Starbucks, Panera? I have only...

    I have not heard of a way to roll back the update. Even if you could it would just update again. Using a power supply that has enough voltage fluctuation to make it "think" it is in a running car may...

    It's not that simple. Cell service plans for a SIM come with Terms of Service that frequently don't allow that, if it works at all.

    If you stick with a phone as a hotspot, you can set up a Wifi...

    Yes, that is the way a phone running a hotspot works. The phone hotspot puts out Wifi that other devices can connect to just like a cable Wifi router. The device connecting to the phone hotspot does...

    Sounds like you are using a carrier branded S8. The hotspot app on carrier branded phones does a check with the carrier when it starts to see if the plan is entitled to hotspot. RP plans are not.

    A Brother all-in-one multifunction laser printer is ~$150 or less. They print, copy, scan, and fax. You need a printer, copier, scanner for the office anyway. Right?

    Nah, CDMA only phones will stop working for voice at the end of 2020, but the MVNOs will continue to happily take your payment for non functional service.
