    New "smartsim" service from Tracfone.

    Canít compare 5G NR with WiMAX because 5G NR is being used on all four major carriers, as well as it being a globally deployed standard. Qualcomm is forcing the standard on its modems and chipsets. ...

    Even more of a reason why I believe it will be an option for business customers rather than other TracFone brand consumers.

    TracFone does offer a business-oriented brand called Clearway, so it...

    Donation centers are good, as they can reissue them to people for 911 access or Lifeline activation.

    Many recycling companies will either accept them or send you to a place that will. Many...

    It's a counterculture-like branding and marketing that T-Mobile US has been using for several years now.

    When T-Mobile US was becoming a public company in 2013, the company started making...

    What you showed could work for your needs. Sorry about not replying sooner (other priorities came up), and I didn't realize you mentioned this option.

    My guess is commercials will happen at ~2-3 minute intervals with one happening at the start of the video.

    Depending on how the videos are produced, the commercials might be interwoven into the...

    I feel this would be a no, but asking here will only give you anocdotal evidence. Only a Verizon tech or network engineer would have a more accurate answer.

    That said, I have been on Verizon...

    1) Data pricing is weird here. Many plans offer "unlimited" data, but tend to be postpaid or throttle after a certain point. Data block plans can be cheaper, but those tend to be on providers that...

    Band 12/17 don't overlap 28 in the same way band 13 does but they should still recieve some interference. I wonder if AT&T is also having issues with their...

    This has been the case for iOS users from day one, as there is no publicly exposed way for apps to read the phone's SIM status.

    I'm pretty sure these changes for the Android apps is a preparation...

    It only has a couple LTE, UMTS, and GSM bands that support US carriers, bands 2 (1900) and 5 (850).
    Currently the only carriers actively running on those bands are AT&T and T-Mobile. You won't be...

    If you had a plan with double data (for reference the $30 plan normally has 500MB), it should qualify you for double data on applicable higher plans.

    I think the system determines promo data...

    That's relatable. My last residence was never served by fiber, only coax cable and 5Mbps DSL, and fairly expensive until fiber crawled into the city shortly before I moved away.

    It's a community-operated information tool, and not something that people pay to use. Can't really compare this to something corporate like McDonald's.

    It honestly isn't much different than using...

    Crowdsourced information is never 100% accurate, that's true.

    I wouldn't expect that to happen for at least a couple years at this point given those two's current network plans. Verizon already charges extra for 5G, and AT&T is expected to per past earnings...
