    What speed test did you use? If it was Fast.com, that is from Netflix and Visible throttles video streaming to 2 Mbps. If so, try another speed test site. Speedof.me works well for me.

    It wouldn't hurt to try getting Tracfone to unlock it anyway. I unlocked mine a few days short of a year. Otherwise, it is locked to Tracfone and will only work on the Tracfone family of services.

    I have not seen anything about how Verizon would manage Tracfone when (if) they buy them.
