    Back when I first got that particular phone, once I learned of the "feature," I searched high and low for a solution to defeat it and couldn't find anything. Maybe something if you were able to root...

    Consider the move wisely.

    We haven't heard if you've got fixed/wired home internet service. Also, GV service over Wi-Fi through the GV or Hangouts app is not universally "perfect" for everyone...

    @rpz1: My experience with my first gen Moto E was that, to my surprise, it had this "safety feature" whereby its ringer for incoming calls had a delayed, graduated, or increasing volume pattern for...

    I was never aware of the plan switch availability to the $3 one from the website (never paid attention).

    I thought, based on reports here on HoFo, that for NEW lines of service wanting the $3/mo...

    Are you talking about making VoIP calls bypassing your cell voice plan by using the GV app installed on your phone? If so, the answers provided will do.

    Otherwise, you don't even need a cell...

    Last week, in the line where the date appears, was a different format that included what looked like a time indication. Looks like things are in...

    I always refill the day of (for the 14 years I've had the line of service). I was just trying to determine if anything may have changed with the change in the website, such that some sort of "tricks"...
  9. Legacy PAYGO future refill time of day deadline

    Here's an obscure question:

    The my.t-mobile.com website used to report, on the day my refill was due, that it expired at xx/xx/xxxx at 9:00 p.m. I always, in years past, added my refill PIN...

    I've got 18.3.85 on my Fiesta 2 with no perceived increase in battery drain. No idea how long since that version first installed. Wow, is that ever a large app (339 MB)!

    I've gotten the newer...

    As long as you've got a carrier number (i.e. a line of service) that you forward GV calls to (and is required for GV to do that and to function), anyone else in the world can call that carrier...

    If this is not your only experience at that location with either T-Mobile or one of its MVNOs, was signal strength ever better?

    Not happy about this, but what can one do? Deal with it as needed, I suppose. If I get hit with a phone call by a number I don't recognize (and I won't typically answer), if I'm curious about...

    I'm sure WhatsApp only works between like installed apps. It isn't an SMS replacement app like, say, Textra that works over the carrier voice/text network portion.

    Probably what happens is a...

    If you are always connected via cell phone data or Wi-Fi, then, no, this would serve no purpose for you.

    But I'm not, and I rely on this feature to assure that I get an SMS text (or at least a...

    If one party doesn't have RCS working it should revert to standard SMS. Very much like iMessage works (No blue? Then green).

    I don't think we should assume RIMDHoward got a Google Voice number, although his OBI dashboard shows two connections (SP1 & 2).

    Speaking of which, normally you would have only ONE of the two...

    Check to see that you've got either Wi-Fi or cellular data on, but be careful with cell data as it will drain your PAYGO balance quickly. Shouldn't be a problem here.
