They offer for another $1.00 that your phone can ring on the rented Sim. The sim I got worked great.
+1, you have VZW forward your calls to the American number associated with the sim. I also got the Verizon Messages app and was able to continue texting with everyone as normal.

The new upgrade offers from verizon are crazy. I can no longer upgrade for somewhere between $50 and $200, I now pay the full price of the phone over 2 years plus a upgrade fee.
For me, I saved when they did this because my plan become a whole lot cheaper. Maybe check if you can switch to better plan.. also if you ask they will usually waive upgrade fee for good customer!

A friend of mine got a new phone from the insurance after his phone broke, now he's trying to activate the new phone, he took out his old sim and placed it in his new phn, And called to activate but no luck, is there any humans who work for verizon past 11pm?
 Or any tricks to activate a phone? Or he's going to have to wait for the morning?

He can try their twitter support account - 24/7. And he can try activating online in his account under "Activate or Switch device"

Roaming support number is usually most responsive

Any way around the new 500mb limit on the $10/day TravelPass? Turning into a huge headache

I see that Verizon has $30/month unlimited talk & text plan for a basic phone. Never saw that before. Is that new?

Not really new, at least a year or two.

This is only in the last month or two.
And to answer the other question there is no way around it unless you take off travelpass and pay per mb which is crazy expensive
