    You should always check to make sure you have current information with these sorts of things, but here is my understanding from buying a couple Verizon phones this way last year. Verizon moved away...

    I didn't really consider that item.



    Yeah, for someone buying at the unactivated price and using a Tracfone sim first, that would seem like a reasonable conclusion. If someone doesn't want a...
  3. Yes, you can do that, but it's often cheaper to...

    Yes, you can do that, but it's often cheaper to activate a phone on postpaid than to buy a postpaid phone outright at Best Buy. At different times Best Buy will even offer gift certificates or...
  4. I'd think there are probably a few older...

    I'd think there are probably a few older Verizon-compatible phones in this range. We were able to activate an RS988 (unlocked LG G5) on a Verizon MVNO. Slickdeals indicates the RS988 sold for less at...

    Cricket uses AT&T and has Wi-Fi calling, but the list of phones that it works with is very limited. Online information suggests Verizon Prepaid has Wi-Fi calling, and I'm personally not aware of any...

    Their website says it's already unlocked.

    I think the quote from this link suggesting MMS "don’t consume your data plan" is rather questionable. Far as I know, MMS messages would typically require cellular data, at least for any photo or...

    The AT&T maps show a few 3rd party (roaming) coverage areas, such as certain parts of Wisconsin, Maine, and New Hampshire. PureTalk and Cricket would not be expected to have standard service in those...

    The AT&T maps show roaming areas as 3rd party. Looking at the AT&T maps, I don't see any significant 3rd party areas in the Southeast portion of the US. While Verizon postpaid does roam within their...

    Personally I haven't used Consumer Cellular, but the following link was last updated in February and indicates they have AT&T roaming. Most AT&T MVNOs do not have roaming, although AT&T Prepaid...
  11. In terms of service, Straight Talk Verizon would...

    In terms of service, Straight Talk Verizon would also lack roaming and HD Voice, which are available as part of Verizon postpaid service. Since I knew that I used Verizon voice roaming at times, I...
  12. Personally I use Tasker to automatically turn off...

    Personally I use Tasker to automatically turn off (and on) many of the things that use battery, like wi-fi, Bluetooth, NFC, and adaptive brightness. My phone is rooted for that reason, although...
  13. As previously noted, it's possible the other...

    As previously noted, it's possible the other phone could have HD Voice service enabled, while your phone service does not have that ability. If that is the case, then you could gain that ability with...

    Verizon postpaid devices with a clean ESN would be expected to activate on Boom Mobile. As previously noted, I don't think Verizon prepaid devices can be activated on Verizon MVNOs, until the terms...

    It's rather rare that my phones have missed calls using MVNOs, but I've had it happen a few times over the years. I get the impression that some particular phones might be worse than others with...

    Far as I know, moving an active sim between various phones is possible with any Verizon MVNO, including Total Wireless. The only limitation that comes to mind, is that it's reported the IMEI...
  18. The "Making HD Voice Calls" section from the...

    The "Making HD Voice Calls" section from the Verizon FAQ seems to suggest Verizon VoLTE service may be limited to calling other Verizon VoLTE users. Since Verizon now has VoLTE-only phones, I'm not...
  19. While I agree that it's probably not necessary...

    While I agree that it's probably not necessary for Tracfone to lower their data rates, when they're likely already offering the cheapest pay as you go data from a phone service that isn't using VOIP,...
  20. There are other pay as you go service providers,...

    There are other pay as you go service providers, but based on the following, it looks like Tracfone's lowest data rates are roughly half the price of the next cheapest option....

    Potentially either with a clean esn could work, but it's not absolute that an iPhone can be activated on Verizon from the given information. An A1633 purchased sim-free direct from Apple would be...

    There are no AT&T MVNOs with features like VoLTE at this time. Cricket has VoLTE on certain phones, but they're owned by AT&T.

    Boom Mobile and Xfinity are the only Verizon MVNOs that I know are...

    The Verizon Prepaid coverage maps primarily show roaming in the Eastern most part of Maine, but Verizon can potentially also roam within their coverage area. My prior phone roamed at work, which is...

    Play Protect is now showing up in my Google Play Store app (8.0.73.R-all). More importantly, my phone actually stopped asking to confirm each time I switched on high accuracy GPS, which some online...

    There are numerous reports about using iPhones, but I'm not aware of any reports about people trying 4G LTE Android phones.
