    Thanks for mentioning US Mobile. With the possibility of a Tracfone Wireless buyout by Verizon next year, I have started looking at alternates. Would have to be running on Verizon (maybe AT&T), as...

    Were there activation fees on the old Boost? Can you choose to not use the expanded network, and stay on the Sprint network? Sprint users are still able to stay on the Sprint network, and not change...

    All the phones on the TF website say "A Service Plan Required for Activation". Just tells you it is not activated at purchase time, and you can decline the service plan at checkout. This should be OK...

    True that non-US version Android phones lack Verizon support, but it's not as bleak as you state for more universal compatibility. As an example, many unlocked US Motorola models will run on just...

    Yes, no CDMA for voice which is a problem if the LTE is weak. I would install a signal app to check the various areas you travel. I mostly use Network Cell Info Lite. The main page shows the band if...

    Seems most unlocked Samsung A series phones do not support Verizon. The A50 they sell is a special model that they have put on their "whitelist".

    From a Verizon rep:

    Can you completely reverse the process? I hear some things like financial apps do not run on a rooted phone.

    By "lower end" do you mean MVNOs not owned by the carriers? That independence is the important point.

    And look at all the bundle phones that were bought just for harvesting the airtime, then abandoned to a drawer or sold off cheap. I only did that once, then donated to a worthy cause thrift store....

    FB is factory installed on these TF Motos? With that app's long reputation for being highly intrusive, it is almost criminal to factory install it. Someone I know has it on their Verizon branded G6,...

    Yep, sometimes you have to go through a number of reps to get the result. The offshore ones have limited capability, and sometimes even the "Executive Resolutions" or "Level 3" reps at the corporate...

    I sort of assumed in the service transfer it would have automatically changed the plan from 3G to 4G. Don't use the website activation if much is at stake. Use chat.

    Where do you get that pricing for Verizon Prepaid? I see $35 and $45 with Auto Pay on the website.

    I think there is also a special SIM for Sprint phones to to be able to run on the T-Mobile network. Do you get HD Voice on the expanded network as well?

    If you want Cricket service, why don't you just activate there first? Why go through Page Plus? There is nothing to do except porting the phone number.

    You must use something like headphones to have an antenna, but the output is switchable to Bluetooth or speaker in the Moto FM Radio app. I had thought of making a compact antenna plug, but think...

    I was referring to any Tracfone not being able to run on Verizon directly. Verizon has a "whitelisting" test program for phones compatible with their network that Tracfone did not go through. If you...

    Problem is that Sprint/Boost/Virgin phones are usually not whitelisted by Verizon, so can't be used on their network. Another problem is many are SIM locked to not work on anything else.

    Divesting the non-Verizon customers will be complicated with the brands that have multiple carriers like Tracfone, Net10, and Straight Talk. Any potential buyer will not get the whole brand, just the...

    This might be role for the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) to be active. Don't think they were in the T-Mobile-Sprint merger hearings.
