    When setting up service, there's a separate prompt for a zip code where you'll get your new number—putting in where your to-be-ported number is from (if it's outside of the area code where you live)...

    Yes - I'd do the porting out and back in after the bonus data appears. Make sure the temporary number is in the same zip code as your real number when activating, so AT&T's system treats it as the...

    Band 4 (AWS Block A-F) is part of Band 66 (AWS Block A-J), just as Band 17 (700 Block B-C) is part of Band 12 (700 Block A-C).

    Yeah, the T-Mobile ones on eBay are the $3/month plan that people have spun up on SIMs to resell for porting purposes (there is a real physical SIM out there somewhere, so there is the hope that the...

    Just curious on this, were you able to port to Family Mobile during the activation process? How much did you have to spend on funding the account? I've got 3 more Cricket lines that I'd eventually...
  6. Yeah, I had no ill-will towards Cricket and...

    Yeah, I had no ill-will towards Cricket and probably would've stayed if this wasn't on the table, but it's funny how AT&T's network evolved in the time I was on Cricket (AT&T postpaid->Cricket->AT&T...

    I don't know how true it's been for others, but it seems that bonus data likes to appear on Wednesdays. I activated one on a Saturday and got the bonus data on a Wednesday, activated another on a...

    You're cookin' with gas…and not even the 5GE indicator!

    Yeah, once things are up and running, you can go in and change SIMs (AT&T Prepaid has section to replace the ICCID, really nice since postpaid doesn't have that) I'll probably do this with an eSIM...

    I just switched away and previously, I was hitting the full 3Mbps just about any time I tested (across various speed test apps), but there were just a few moments where things felt slower. Latency...

    Keep in mind that T-Mobile recently handed their $3/month plan that people use for porting to Ultra Mobile, so you'd either have to find an existing line on eBay, go for a normal prepaid plan from...

    You should be able to - there's a lot of misinformation on the subject at certain AT&T authorized resellers and even some employees at corporate stores. When I was attempting to get the 25GB Walmart...

    I've still got a couple of lines on Cricket (a bit of a balance to use up, but moved my main line to AT&T Prepaid for the Walmart promo), but the rumors about these plans didn't give much to go on....

    Are you running an 8/8 Plus? I rarely see non-notchy iPhones with the 5GE indicator.

    Yeah, and it seems like it's some sort of system/process limitation, not necessarily AT&T being difficult or incompetent. The woman I spoke with in the porting department (both times,...

    Yes, you won't be able to do that because AT&T considers Cricket numbers as already part of AT&T's system (about the only time they acknowledge Cricket as part of AT&T). This is the same issue that...

    Yeah, the nice thing about getting some sort of cheap phone is that you can activate service and let it sit for a few days to verify that the bonus data has been added and then have it side-by-side...

    Sometimes you can log into the account through My T-Mobile (they've been migrating some things, so sometimes it loads, sometimes it doesn't) and buy another pass, but the official way is to buy it...

    I know this is almost 7+ months out, but basically for any of the DataConnect plans, you have to do it on-device or through the web site with an unused SIM. The stores don't seem to know these plans...

    Nice! Obviously, there's a point where anything over a certain speed is "enough," but it's nice to see places where AT&T is putting in work. While I've been all over the state and haven't run into...

    Just curious, how was your experience if you stuck with AT&T Prepaid and where did you go?

    I've been on AT&T's network for the better part of the last 11 years, but my main line has been on Cricket for the past two. While I was satisfied with the heavily-throttled speed, I jumped to AT&T...

    Being crazy enough to throw money at this for a second attempt, I ported my number to T-Mobile (also a great chance to try out their network again in my daily driver, since I only use it on an iPad),...

    All iPads are unlocked, but ones sold at carrier stores may be set up specifically for that carrier if they use an embedded Apple SIM (you can bypass this with a standalone SIM card).

    The tourist plans will also go this route. I'm wondering if this is a way for T-Mobile to get out of the prepaid business with their name eventually (i.e. T-Mobile postpaid and Metro and that's it). ...
