    I cannot find the actual Samsung account listed among the apps, just numerous other Samsung apps. :befuddled

    Wierd Agony With S8 and a Data Hoarder

    An old friend bought an S20 last year and eventually gave/loaned/? me his existing S8. He set it up with a new sim and everything worked fine. He still had all his old junk on it, but was in a...

    Updated information: Apparently this thing is so odd that it expires each month, you are notified of its expiration by text and is automatically renewed each month until it reaches 360 days.

    Are you ready for this?

    I bought a Red Pocket 360-day plan for $60, plus tax.

    Two weeks later, I get a text message saying that my account expires in another 14 days (one month). I contact...

    Got the SIM quick, but when we try to register it, the site asks for the PIN and I can't find it anywhere, so far.

    Ideas?

    Thanks!

    I wound up going with Red Pocket thanks to a complicated screwup with a third party who wasn't paying attention (long story that doesn't bear listening to).

    I'm sure it will work out OK, though...

    I looked at H2O, but couldn't make the slightest sense from their page. It's probably the better deal, but I simply can't figure it out.

    I'll give this another day before making my move on it.

    I just took a look back this afternoon, so I haven't gotten to all of them yet, but Red Pocket is the only one so far that I can make any actual sense out of (confusing sites and offers seem to be...

    COVID-19 Forces a New Look for a Long Deal

    After getting burned not once, but three (3) times by the odious Lycamobile, I actually blew off the whole cell phone thing for the better part of a year.

    I'm an old guy who's trying to go...

    Man! My landline and internet went out today, and I desperately tried to call ATT service with my Lyca phone, only to discover that I had no account! Good bye ~$9.75!

    Fortunately, my landline...

    It looks like the email thing might work for me. Every other option requires a PIN.

    Thanks!

    Well, so far I'm not having much fun. :(

    Getting the phone to register the SIM and getting CallingMart to top it up $10 worth was relatively easy, but things started getting odd from there.

    That's what I thought. And those must be OUTgoing calls/texts, right?



    At some point, after the original great deal started dissolving, people posted here saying that under the new more...

    That's an excellent tip, but fortunately I've never owned an Apple product, so I'm safe. ;)

    No, no, no, no, no...LYCA is making more difficult than it needs to be. ;)

    I still don't think there's a way to get a SIM directly from them without getting into a plan. That's what I was trying...

    On one of my SIMs, I may have let it go too long without a call, but the other one was current, reloaded with about $9 and was in 90-day use. They cancelled these "old" accounts for some complicated...

    I see nothing like this on their site. Can you give me a link?

    What kind of tech do they support? 2G 3G or something else? I seem to remember that Verizon was different.

    For the phone, virtually no usage, and zero data usage ever. The above options would in less than a year exceed the price of just getting a cheap 3G phone and getting gratis FreedomPop or something...

    "Our story so far..."

    Digging around, it looks like the T-Mobile site still shows support for 2G (though I've seen posts here saying it doesn't). ATT of course does not.

    It appears that Lyca...

    I was under the impression that T-Mobile had dropped it as well, at least in some areas. Is there a site where I can find out?



    I can see that it could, though I really like the small "feature...

    As I see it on the Callingmart site, this will only work if you already have an existing number...and I don't think you can currently get one from Lyca without some "plan." I have several of the...
