    Did you try to do it yourself online first?

    Has anyone actually had a problem recently after a TF/VZW SIM swap ?

    1. No. 2. Swapping SIM will work until TF decides to take adverse action.

    Default line on web account still a thing?

    I don't know if it has an official name, but functionally it's the "account owning line". It defaults to the first line that was added at/after account creation. If that line expires or is removed, then the next-oldest one takes its place. Even if you later re-add/reactivate the 1st line, it...

    Nokia C110 not unlocking

    I doubt it. Doing that would only make a difference if TF system shows that it's NOT (yet) eligible for unlocking and reactivating it will redo/complete its unlocking eligibility. In your case, TF system shows that it is eligible for unlocking AND is already unlocked, but somehow its IMEI didn't...

    Has anyone actually had a problem recently after a TF/VZW SIM swap ?

    Not me. I'm not a person who wants to stick my hand into a fire to see how badly I can get burned.

    Has anyone actually had a problem recently after a TF/VZW SIM swap ?

    I haven't done that recently but I think you'll get an error message to call TF, because the original device no longer has a SIM associated with it. TF rep might tell you to go buy a BYOP SIM so they can pair it to the old device.

    Nokia C110 not unlocking

    My suspicion is that the phone is eligible for remote unlocking, but somehow the process to add its IMEI to the database of unlocked IMEI didn't complete properly. If this was my case, I'd ask the Unlocking Dept to resubmit their unlock request.

    Non VZW Activation as of June 2024

    Verizon and T-mo must've reached an agreement last Fall because TF added back the T-mo SIM which was removed from the TF BYOP SIM Kit for a while.

    Thanks for your help, Tom. I'll create a new thread if I have more questions about iPhones. Don't want to hog this TF Deals thread.

    There's an option in iTunes to NOT replace existing files, so it'll add only new files and gets done quicker.

    On my laptop PC, I created sub-folders in the Music/MP3 folder a long time ago. When I ran iTunes on my laptop today, I clicked on Files-->Add Folder to Library and pointed iTunes to the Music/MP3 folder.

    I too have a folder named MP3 assigned to the "Music" category, with all the sub-folders for different artists. Pointing iTunes to the MP3 folder picked them all up.

    * I did choose "sync over Wifi" and saved it, but I ejected the phone from iTunes, so I'll need to select it next time. * The "random" in Autofilled seems to mean that it will randomly pick files in any order to process, but it still put group the files by the correct Albums/Artists so it...

    I used Tom's instructions, a USB-A to Lightning cable, and managed to load most of my music files to my i12 (added them to iTunes Library first then Autofilled to the i12). Had to restart one time because my i12 "disappeared" in the iTunes app while it was loading files to the i12. Uninstalled...

    Tom, I dug around and found a USB-A to Lightning cable. I'll follow your instructions and see if I can load my mp3 files to my i12. If that works, I'll see if I can set up my i12 to be as close as possible to my Samsung S24 and functions similarly. My goal is to put my TF service on the i12...

    I will be 67 in a few months. I bought a lot of music CDs in the 80's and ripped them into MP3 files. I want to load them to my phone(s) for listening while waiting at appointments, while exercising, or at night, without needing to carry/use a standalone music player. I've downloaded a few...

    Thanks, Tom. That video helped. I had to leave the earbuds in their case with the lid opened in order for the i12 to find it. With an Android phone, I can take the earbuds out and put them in my ears and the Android phone still finds and connects to them. But when I did that with the i12, the...

    The refurb XRs that I got from TF came with the Lightning to USB-A cable. I had a few but gave them away to forum members. I found out that my iPhone12 wouldn't connect to my Samsung Buds2 bluetooth earbuds. I've read that Apple devices don't conform to the standard Bluetooth protocol. Since...

    Thanks for the detailed instructions, Tom. I'll give it another shot. I don't remember if I had tried to load the MP3 files using iCloud. I did try to use Dropbox but the Dropbox trial membership allowed me to move only a limited number of files (10?). To connect my iPhone12 to my laptop's USB-A...
