    I agree with what tomseys said. There's no reason to spend $125 on TF web site to add 1-yr 1500 minutes to your existing phone. The HSN bundle is a better deal.

    People who said that are usually "power users" or "trend followers" who pay lots of money for their phones. I don't belong in those groups.

    That requires you to apply for & get approved for a Paypal credit card. I won't take a hard inquiry on my credit file for a meager $50.

    I don't think that's a sure way of finding out whether or not a SIM is preloaded. If I take a SIM from a $1 kit and activate it, it will always ask if I want to "keep your number" (i.e. transfer from...

    Yes, I got an unlocked E6 from Visible and it was shipped with Pie, I don't have any problems with it. I like it better than the E5 because the E5 is just too big for my taste.

    Not sure which cell signal tools you use. I use Network Signal Info app and it works on my unlocked Moto E6 with location off. Location only needs to be on if you want the tower location info.
