  1. How Does Paying for Verizon Prepaid Work?

    I am trying to help a couple of people get off their very expensive postpaid plans that they don't need. One is on Verizon postpaid, the other is on AT&T postpaid. These people are not cellphone...

    Without a Gmail or Google account on the phone you won't be able to use the Play Store to get or update apps. You won't be able to use some Google Apps, like Drive, Keep, maybe Youtube. I don't know...

    That is pretty normal behavior. I doubt that you are compromised. Removing the Wifi button from the pulldown menu wouldn't change anything. These are just convenience quick settings.

    Not much has been posted about the Harmon Spark. I looked into it a while ago and it appears that it is intended to be locked into being plugged into a car to operate - "Telematics Required". It also...

    The Moto G7 is capable of VoLTE.

    The simultaneous voice and data test is adequate to determine if you are on VoLTE.

    There is another way that works with Motos. Secret Handshake time: From the...

    Tracfone has a usage requirement. Some usage in a year for feature phones, six months for smartphones.

    I can report from personal experience that they do enforce the one year usage requirement for...

    Good catch. I did not notice that the phones mentioned are feature phones.

    Modding feature phones is a dead end.

    Removing some pre-installed apps requires the phone to be rooted. Once rooted, the Titanium Backup app can freeze or remove any app. It is not really simple. You have to identify what file or files...

    Putting a micro SD in a phone does not automatically format it. It should have whatever was on it before. You can format it easily in the new phone if you don't need what was on it.

    That would be a good thing to try. It doesn't clear anything you need.

    If clearing cache doesn't work, I would do a factory reset without app and settings backup and reinstall only the apps I...

    I just looked at my retired Verizon branded Galaxy S4. It does not have a SIM in it. It says Phone number: unknown. I don't recall if I did a factory reset on it.

    [Edit] Oh, wait. I remembered...

    IIRC, the only entanglement would be that it can only be used with Tracfone service. It may also be usable with other America Movil services - Net10, Total Wireless, Straight Talk, Page Plus, etc. I...

    I had the same issue with my Moto G6. The only gallery app it comes with is Google Photos. Grrrrrrrrr, way to complicated and fiddly. All I want is something to see my pictures, delete some, and send...

    Depends on how much you want to spend, how much you want the ultimate device, how you want to use it.

    I like my ZTE Velocity that I got as a refurb for $30. I get 2-10 Mbps on it at home and can...

    I have received nothing from Tello about my paygo balance expiring with the expected end in six days. I do receive promotional emails from them so they have a working email contact.

    I have had PDANet work for USB tethering when Wifi hotspot would not, though not on Total.

    I'm surprised that a Pixel has a carrier locked hotspot. I thought the Pixels were carrier agnostic.

    Aside from online purchases, they do it one WalMart shopper at a time under the umbrella of America Movil (Tracfone).

    Fortunately I did not have to interact with the reps to purchase or activate...

    No phone cord came with my refurb box. Any ordinary phone cord works. Aside from the RJ plug they are about as low-tech as it gets.

    The ZTE z723el is Verizon VoLTE not CDMA as best we can tell,...

    What do you think is fake about 5G on 600 MHz?...

    What do you think is fake about 5G on 600 MHz? The fact that it will not do Gbps does not make it fake. Gbps is not a requirement or design goal of 5G where the bandwidth is not available.

    Good call.

    Verizon's statement about CDMA availability is that it will continue until the end of 2020, but only AS-IS, WHERE-IS. They have not installed any CDMA for years and repair/replace of...
