    I think that's true. VZW won't be bothered to have different levels of deprioritization for MVNO's.
    However, I think this is sometimes mistakenly understand as being throttling.

    For WiFi calling to work, the phone's IMEI needs to be whitelisted on the server side. It doesn't matter if the phone is theoretically capable.
    The iPhones newer than 8 are whitelisted, some of the...

    That's "SIM unlocked". Not the same with "factory unlocked".
    In order to be able to function on a different US cell network, the phone needs to have the hardware present/enabled (all the LTE bands,...

    All accepted phones in TW network should have VoLTE active by now, so it is not "highly dependent".

    WiFi calling is a gimmick IMO and is supported for now only by iPhones newer than 8.

    Why would people believe that nonsense? Scare tactic... just for fun? Because Ting doesn't make any phones, so it has no interests in "up-selling" devices.

    I still have a land line on my FIOS plan and they have a battery back-up for their ONT available for that case. I still have a "dumb" headset on that line for emergencies.

    Because they OWN those networks. Total Wireless is just reselling service at lower price, they are a MVNO. Subject of de-prioritization, as per their TOS.

    "verses" = third person present, speak in or compose verse; versify.

    That is not sure. Unless he actually called and requested the unlock, they will not do it automatically.

    It won't be "good". It will be probably marginally working in most of the places.

    That's just not true as a general statement.
