    Depends how much data you need. prepaidcompare.net is a great resource to compare what is available. You also need to make sure that the plan allows hotspotting or tethering - not all do. Tello does....

    They are not for low/mid-band "Nationwide" 5G. I think they are for mmWave Ultra Wideband 5G.

    Those all have the look of cheap junk, likely of very low quality.

    Even if they were of good quality, the size of the solar panel would be about 1/4 Watt. That would output 50 mA at 5V. It would...

    Are you sure you are doing Wifi calling, not just regular calling with a poor cell signal?

    To be sure, you can put the phone in Airplane mode, then turn Wifi back on.

    You get the autopay discount by having it turned on. If you make deposits to the account it will use those first and you still get the discount without your card being charged. You may still be able...

    Yes, the D in DSS stands for dynamic. That will allow one cell band or slice of it to switch between LTE and 5G moment by moment depending on what phones or devices request. The downside is that the...

    AT&T does not allow transfer of a Mobley plan to another party. It would not be illegal to sell it to someone else, but they would have to pay you and you maintain and pay your AT&T plan/account -...

    That's not the way DSS works. DSS is about sharing the same band between LTE and 5G. What you described is a band selection scheme. They have been doing that since more than one band started being...

    Don't know if that was working yesterday. Today, for me, it says, "Error: Your username or password is incorrect. Please try again."

    I assumed that this was just using imprecise terminology about the system. Isn't there something about 5G where the better spectral efficiency would offset the throughput loss imposed by DSS? If it...

    Other than showing 5G on the top line of the screen for bragging rights it does not make any practical difference in 2020 and is unlikely to matter much in 2021 either.

    There will be more 5G...

    Same here, no notice, no SIM. I was able to login my account. Clicking on My Account just sent me back to the login page.

    That is basically correct. Truphone was my first smartphone service. I started in 2013 and still have it on my glovebox phone. I have not made a deposit in more years than I can remember and it still...

    How low do you want to go?

    Moto E6 - $149, Moto G7 Power - $179

    I have both of these. They work fine. The E6 is $100 direct from Moto. The E6 is an older, lower spec phone with 2 GB RAM, 16 GB...

    That is only true for mmWave spectrum. 5G, on its own, does not change the propagation of radio signals.

    What Verizon has done to claim Nationwide 5G is to share the same spectrum that LTE uses...

    I have used the Tracfone MVNO with AT&T and Verizon for years. They work fine. I have never noticed being deprioritized, but I don't live in a notoriously congested area.
