one would hope it would go smoother now.

The volume thing is personal preference. What works for me may not work for you.


Sorry that's how bad my memory is.

Think I'm going to pull the trigger on a Moto G5 Plus. Just curious do you think one can tell the difference in weight between say a phone that weighs 5 oz (my Pixel 2) vs 5 1/2 oz (Moto G5Plus) vs 5 3/4 oz (Moto x4) vs 6 1/4 oz (my old Droid Turbo)? While my Droid Turbo had so many positives I absolutely hated the weight and it always bothered me... so now I'm so conscious of phone weights.

New article...thank you! This confirms there was a June 30, 2018 cutoff date (now extended) for activating both 3G AND non-VoLTE phones on the Verizon network. It was a "rumor" before, but this article gives source references. Huge news for folks with 3G and non-VoLTE phones.

mathfaster...would you post the article in another more relevent (or new) thread? Everybody needs to see this.

Get a cheap VZW LTE phone and swap to it. Something like the Majesty Pro or Rebel.
They will be at least was good as the Ultimate 2.

Then you can sim swap while testing.

The G5+ vs the Pixel2 probably not.

1/2 oz or less isn't really noticeable usually.

But for reference, the Ultimate 2 is listed at 4.5 oz. So compare with your Pixel.

I put a thread in General PrePaid Discussion sub-forum since it seemed broadly relevant there with all the VZ MNNOs that sub-forum handles.

So should we be looking for deals on volte capable phones? Any recommendations? Will this effect GSM phones as of that date?
