    Can you add a $50 one year service in "More for your device" in checkout? This is only offered with Tracfone branded phones, but you said the iPhone was bought from Tracfone. You have to put...

    Agree the TF system thinks the phone is an iPhone 5. The XR may have become paired with the 5's SIM after swapping. You would think that during an activation, providing the IMEI for the XR and new...

    Yes, all phones that ran on Sprint will have to be T-Mobile VoLTE capable. Even some Sprint customers will have to replace their phones when they shut down CDMA. I doubt a Boost non-VoLTE phone can...

    I was wondering how you activate the second phone in this deal with a new number or transfer of service from another active phone.

    Like @Serial Port mentioned the new phone might still have the APN for Straight Talk, which may be different than for Tracfone. It should be VZWINTERNET for TF Verizon service, not TRACFONE.VZWENTP....

    The FCC may have severely damaged the expansion plans by ruling that 3 billion worth of spectrum purchase discounts were illegally obtained.

    I don't see that the Moto E 2020 (or any other E model) has a Gyro sensor. The G models mostly do.

    I saw that spec too, but you have to make sure that is what you are getting from where you buy. The generic specs you find are not the same.

    Agree that the LTE bands need to be known. Some of the versions from China don't have the US bands at all.

    Yes, posters on the PPC forum mostly speak of issues with the "Standard" pay-go plans. Lately about going from a 3G to 4G plan. Also, ways to save data usage on the pay-go plans because of the high...

    The default carrier for SafeLink is T-Mobile, unless not available in a given area. Verizon would either have to switch all those users over (new phones?), or divest itself of that service. Not sure...

    From what little financial information there is, ST is the largest TF subsidiary. None of the others are broken down from the total.

    I don't remember any posts on the HoFo PPC forum for the last...

    Hope you are right about Verizon not drastically changing Tracfone service. Eliminating PayGo on Tracfone or Page Plus would kill them off. The other subsidiaries are monthly plans that would not be...

    Verizon has enough trouble with LTE in rural areas now with a lack of low-band, much less with 5G. Not sure what they are going to use with low-band/mid-band 5G. They use some LTE B5 here, and might...

    The availability of basic plans has also been erratic on my non TMFL BYOP phone activated over 2 years ago. Sometimes it shows in the app, sometimes on the website, and sometimes not at all. When...

    A charging only USB cable is odd these days. Even cheap generic cables have the data connections. My Moto Bluetooth headset charger does not have a removable USB cable. I never use that, and just use...

    It's disturbing that they might start locking out hotspot on some newer Tracfone models. Previous Moto models were largely unmodified from the unlocked versions, besides the usual SIM lock. Wonder...

    This looked like a lock-out problem with a TF branded phone, but the OP says it's an unlocked phone.

    I am assuming the S20+ was a Verizon branded or an unlocked phone. Would need a new TF BYOP SIM. OP might clarify.

    Did you use a new BYOP SIM in the S20+? The only thing they needed was the phone number from the S8+, and the IMEI and new BYOP SIM number to do the service transfer to the S20+. Once transferred,...

    In some phones you have to set the USB mode after connecting the cable. My phone defaults to "charge only", and has to be set to transfer data files. If in "charge only" you will see the phone in...

    My BYOP phone with a non-TMFL SIM did get it when transferring service from a TMFL branded Tracfone. That was 2 years ago, and not sure if they do that anymore. It may also be a one time deal. TMFL...
