    My point about the carrier profiles is that the carrier pretty much controls that. They decide whether to support FaceTime, for instance, not Apple. Early years of FaceTime, ATT didn't allow it on...

    I think it is more that Apple doesn't provide custom OS packages for the different carriers. So, provided the phone hardware is the same, an unlocked phone works the same on a carrier than the...

    There have been reports in the past that, after an OS upgrade, power usage is higher for awhile while the system is "optimized".

    I would suggest checking the power usage by APPS in settings to...

    A month or so ago signed up a new number on this plan, and they had an option you could choose if you already had a SIM. Maybe it is gone now.

    It is up to the individual. How tight is your financials. How much does it bother you to pay $5 more than you need to? ($60/year). Hardly life altering.

    I've actually done stuff that in the...

    Sounds like you have a poor credit history or no credit history but your information indicates 7 years worth of prior ATT history.

    Since I also use an iPad I probably won't notice a difference when I finally do upgrade from my X. Still successful in fighting the urge to upgrade, though I have a 7+ that could be a tradein on a...

    Which is why many carriers implement the "free" phone via credits over 24 or more months. If you leave early you owe the remaining balance on the phone.

    Doesn't answer my question. It may be the case you have the plan that is supposed to only be an add-on, but some people have on its own.

    SInce the 6 didn't support Band 12, it isn't a very good phone anymore for certain areas of the country. Now that I'm on T-Mobile again for another try, it would be nice if I had B71. But I've...

    For right now, just either stay within General Prepaid or maybe the Verizon forums.

    Based on other posts, the operator of this site doesn't want to continue splitting people off into smaller...

    Unlike the last time I tried T-Mobile, the MVNO market has got really competitive. The ability to have a $5/month plan (with 100 minutes) on the Verizon or ATT network in case of emergency is a...

    I didn't qualify for this since I had T-Mobile several years ago. So I'm giving it a new trial the old fashioned way, porting my number over.
