    The U2 was a great phone in it's day, but time marches on. Lots has changed, so I will try to keep it simple.
    3G or 4G non-VoLTE phones are obsolete and can't even be activated in Verizon service...

    I see the G6 weight listed as 5.9 oz. How much does your case weigh?

    Yes, watches don't have room for a physical SIM card. Any idea why the MVNOs can't activate eSIMs?

    Yes, HERE offline maps are huge and painfully slow to download depending on your WiFi speed. They also don't have near the POI detail as Google Maps. Online POI detail is not very good either in...

    I don't think the MVNOs can activate an eSIM in any device. Later iPhones have an eSIM and a nano slot for this, and I assume Android phones would also be dual SIM.

    That sounds like the One Button Nav feature in the Moto app. Uses the G6 front fingerprint sensor to replace the screen buttons. Touch for Home, swipe left for Back, swipe right for Recents. Check...

    The Advanced Calling version is programmed into the phone, so a SIM swap will not change it. Some phones in the era of the Galaxy S5 were updated by Verizon by OTA, but many were not. Those that were...

    Not just 3G phones are affected. 4G non-VoLTE capable phones as well. That is the tricky bit, as they can sometimes be hard to identify. The Tracfone models are pretty well known, but BYOP phones are...

    Is the ZIP a A576BL? If so, did it come with an AT&T SIM or did you use a BYOP? What TF brand? AT&T does not provide VoLTE to MVNOs. so that setting may not show.

    Cheaper Alcatel models vary in...

    Yes, I have not seen the use of AT&T branded phones on Tracfone BYOP recently. The Alcatel Smartflip looks interesting because of the enhanced features like Google Assistant for voice to text...

    You better check about the Verizon lock on these phones. It is not listed as a Prepaid phone, but last I saw they required 60 days of service on the other phones to unlock. There used to be no lock...

    Not all charities deal with things like phones. You need to ask the donations people what is acceptable, rather than just dumping them anonymously. I have donated a few new unused phones to the...

    What does it show when LTE is too weak? It would be helpful to know the signal numbers (dBm), and which band LTE is running on. Signal boosters may not even work there. Does not look very...

    Good to hear! Is there an LTE signal in her location? The LTE Discovery app will show if there is VoLTE. Try it on your own phone to know how to read it. Will show no 1xRTT signal if operating on...

    Aha, seen something like that before in Android phones. It is from an account that is enabled for Visual Voicemail, but the phone is not capable of reading it.

    You are speaking of Visual Voicemail, and it does work on LTE data. There must have been something in the original profile that makes it work. There are a couple of APNs used for Android phones on...

    Yes, the AT&T Smartflip and T-Mo Go Flip 3 are not going to work on Selectel. The Verizon Go Flip V does not have the speech to text feature using Google Assistant.

    Original date for Verizon CDMA shutdown was end of 2019, but they pushed that out a year. I suspect that 1) they had not pushed LTE out far enough, and 2) not all of their customers had upgraded...

    Not having a steady LTE signal is going to be the pits when CDMA shuts down next year. Around here they have been using some of the higher frequency LTE bands that don't carry as well as good old...

    There is a concern about getting LTE signal in fringe areas. What does the Verizon coverage map show?

    I assume you have already set up the Google account to use the Play Store. This should not affect the SIM until it is activated. Lots of people use phones with inactivated SIMS or no SIM at all. Only...

    Yep, could be fake news. Just like some of the legit looking articles predicting the date for the end of Verizon CDMA that turned out to be bogus.

    The T&C has not been updated since April. These are pretty much uniform throughout the Tracfone companies and only updated periodically.
