    I know BrickSeek sometimes have the inventory wrong, but it is a good starts so you don't have to drive to every single Walmart in your area. I know it helps me because I live in the middle of a number Walmarts that are about an hour or more away in each direction.

    Does anyone know of a current source to get the ZTE Z723EL? Amazon and eBay don't show any at all. I need to switch a family member over from the CDMA device.

    Yea, I don't know what is going on with these home phone boxes because I still know of people with the old CDMA boxes, but they can't find one of the newer boxes too.

    I just got done talking to Straight Talk about their Straight Talk Home Phone Huawei H226C since I still know a few people with them still. This CSR said they knew Verizon is dropping their CDMA network, but here is the funny thing. The Straight Talk CSR said that the Straight Talk Huawei H226C home phone boxes will still work after the CDMA network is drop due to it not using data. I have the chat log still if someone wants me to post it and get a good laugh too.

    I wouldn't want to work for a Tracfone company on January 1 2020



    "AT&T announced that its 2G wireless network was officially shut down on January 1, 2017, following four years of planning for its discontinuation. "


    They probably thought this was a joke to. ..........

    As an alternative I found out that you can activate the Novatel T2000 home phone device, which is what Verizon is selling now, on Selectel for $17/month unlimited minutes. This plan is not listed on Selectel's website but the CSRs know about it and know how to activate it. I just mention this for anyone who isn't able to find the Straight Talk ZTE Z723EL to replace their CDMA home phone device. I will be testing the T2000 soon and will report my impressions to this thread in a month or so.

    Not quite what this thread is about, but Ooma is a good home phone replacement if you have a good Internet connection. Magicjack is an even cheaper alternative, but the voice quality leaves much to be desired.

    I have been looking at this Novatel T2000 and trying my ZTE Z723EL's SIM in it and seeing if it works. I have been looking at Novatel T2000 because it runs off of USB, and I could pop it in a car a little easier since I have lots of USB car chargers still.

    I am using a T2000 with a Tracfone (verizon) BYOP SIM , and it works just fine. The usage in our home (just my wife and I) is only about 200 min/mo, so financially Tracfone makes sense for us.

    Tracfone company SIMs are locked to a device so I will be very surprised if it works in a T2000.

    I think the key here is the BYOP SIM. Could you report on how reliable the T2000 is? The reviews are very mixed. Also do you have the external antenna? From Verizon the external antenna is an extra cost item.
