    I suspect that the APN stored in the phone was changed during the update and needs to be reset. Nothing new and easily corrected. I believe there is a code you can text to your cellular provider...

    I assure you that I am not "adoring" Verizon for making it more difficult on anyone. They do have an obligation to their customers and shareholders to minimize fraud to reduce costs. Just saying.

    Sadly, no matter how they try to make these things foolproof, the theives invent a bigger fool to circumvent such protections. It is an ever-evolving challenge for customers and providers.

    Not exactly. SIM cards were developed to minimize fraud and make US phones more compatible with cellular carriers worldwide. The ability to swap SIM cards was an additional benefit for cellular...

    Boz1, did you have any trouble depositing that check with all that information blacked out?:evil::silly:

    I didn't say that At&t had "New Bands". Use the accepted "White List" and there should be no issue. I just wanted to make that clear.
  8. I am not discouraging anyone from contacting the...

    I am not discouraging anyone from contacting the FCC over this, but I am realistic about the odds of winning that fight which are slim to none. Until we can organize a PAC (Political Action...
  9. Keep in mind that even if the phone has the...

    Keep in mind that even if the phone has the "correct bands", if it isn't "Whitelisted" there is little hope it will be accepted by At&t. It wasn't as much of an issue 10 years ago (for example) as...
  10. To some extent, it has always been important to...

    To some extent, it has always been important to confirm what bands that the phone used before activating the phone on whatever carrier you chose unless it was bought from the carrier itself. Yes,...

    Time to close this thread. Please continue in the OP's other thread on the same topic instead.

    OP, don't waste your time with any version of GSM or CDMA phone. The minimum technology should be 4G (VOLTE/LTE) or 5G when purchasing a new phone. Don't buy a phone that might have the older...

    Typically, most spam callers have phone systems that "spoof"/change the number displayed that they are calling from. Even having your phone registered on the Federal Do Not Call List won't stop the...

    When I was with At&t there was no user method to change the # of rings. Only the number of seconds it would ring before going to VM was available. I think the default setting was 15 seconds, but...

    First question, what is your budget for the phone? I see 5 different flip models on their internet page. Are you looking for a phone that can travel outside of the US with a foreign carrier?
  16. I understand your thought on this, but remember...

    I understand your thought on this, but remember that if the phone is constantly being used on towers outside the user's address on file, it could raise some red flags that a false address is on file....

    Not likely to happen. The "whitelist" consists of phones that have been tested by the carrier and confirmed to be compatible. It isn't in the carrier's best interest to support unapproved phones...
  18. I don't know how much it would cost, but because...

    I don't know how much it would cost, but because of the phone not being easily user serviceable, the labor costs are higher. I used to have the same model Samsung and I thought it was close to...
  19. Unless someone else can confirm otherwise, I...

    Unless someone else can confirm otherwise, I seriously doubt it would be compatible with any US carrier.

    It wasn't a typo. I originally said it was a thing, I was challenged on it and then I did a Google search to find a related article for the time. Back then there was no such thing as VOLTE on At&t...

    I stand by my assertion that you are not connecting to a tower 60 miles away. I use the OOKLA Speed test on my phone as well. Occasionally, my phone shows a connection to Gainesville, Orlando or...
  22. Are you certain about that??

    I seriously doubt you had a connection with a tower 60 miles away. The RF signals are limited in range. Could be that the phone was still trying to connect to a distant tower in error instead of a...

    To play devil's advocate, the online offer is sight unseen and when they get the phone, they will evaluate the device and send a check for what they feel it is worth. It would be no different if you...

    I have to agree. I only signed up with them for 1 year and that was my experience.

    Did you read the article pasted in post #15? The article title mentions 4GE instead of 4Ge but it is the same thing. Back then, only data was supported on the equivalent of 3.5G (unofficially...
