    Yer right, B71 is 600MHz which is not on the FCC certification list. Interesting it has B41 which is used by Sprint. Not known if T-Mobile will use B41 for anything but 5G. Main reason they bought...

    Better information was found in further searching. The first attempt to access Apple support was not good, but better support was later found. It changed when the Apple stores reopened last week, and...

    Yes, any DL phone will work on the 3 major networks. The B71 thing is unique to T-Mobile. Most phones did not have it until recently, unless they were T-Mobile branded. B71 was formerly used by UHF...

    Missing from the MyFlip is B71 for T-Mobile service, even though it's sold on Simple Mobile. B71 can increase the coverage in weak areas over what T-Mobile had before. It's the backbone of their 5G...

    The old "single bucket" feature phones kept track of the "Units" internally, but that was changed to server tracking with the 3 bucket system. I guess there could be an app to act like the Android My...

    How did you get the My Boost app? From the Play Store or on a new Boost phone?

    On many Android phones there used to be a setting for rejecting calls from anyone not on your contact list. Not sure...

    Old 3G phones will definitely not work when Verizon shuts down CDMA later in the year. Neither will some 4G LTE phones without VoLTE.

    There is a discussion about the new LG Classic Flip here:...

    The MyFlip is available from sellers like Walmart and Best buy. Get a Tracfone branded one. Do NOT get a Simple Mobile one.

    If you mean calling a phone with land line or VoIP service (like a business), it is not going to have HD Voice. Requires a VoLTE connection on both ends.

    Thank you, that seems to put the defective phone question to rest! It looks like Verizon decommissioned/reconfigured the tower you were getting signal from before. I doubt anyone connected with...

    Makes sense why AT&T would be poor, as there is only 1 tower which is on Hwy 5. T-Mobile shows poor on their coverage map, even though there are 3 towers on Hwy 5.

    What keeps you from going to...

    Yep, Verizon has been changing the tower configurations. The towers in the OP's area mostly show Band 2, which is not the best for range.

    There are still some ASOP apps, but the question is can they be side load installed as APKs?. There is a file manager on this phone that states it can see all storage areas.

    Are you north or south of MD Hwy 5? Verizon towers are all north of there and would be mostly out of range. You ZIP code on Verizon shows south of Hwy 5.

    I would say "must redeem airtime cards during no fewer than 12 months of service". Point is they want you to buy more airtime after the "bonus" bundle talk minutes are used up. It is legalese...
