Nice!

When switching from tracphone to net10. Am i able to port in a number?
Yes, don't see why not. They're all one big company.

One thing I can think of that might not be a hack, but I didn't realize until a couple months of using the phone. When not in any menu, you can press a few numbers to start searching for a contact, either searching by the number, or by the name of the contact. (It's hard to explain but makes a lot of sense after you try it).
FYI this works on all Android phones

Finally got ahold of all three versions.
  Trying to use T-Mobile service.

 The lg classic flip from TracFone obviously is not going to work.

 Then I got ahold of the Us cellular version and it goes the sim card, meaning shows 4g lte but as soon as you dial out if says invalid sim.
  So that's out.

 And lastly picked up a few of the So called Unlocked Version of the wine2 Lg classic flip.
 
 Tried my T-Mobile Sim card, while the Sms, mms all work fine. The calling when on the Lte 4g bands it delays the call for 10 seconds before dialing the number.
 But after changing it to the 2g bands, everything works as normal, but then again I'm using 2g bands when I can use 4g which I would assume would give me better coverage most places?

 There's a global setting which automatically gives you the LTE gsm. And then another setting which has edge or whatever , and gives you the 2g settings.
 While I'll post a picture of the settings, and the last setting didn't work at all.
 And CDMA of course won't work as I'm Using T-Mobile which is a gsm carrier.

No, it's not the same.
LG Wine 2 Model# LG-LMY120UM is locked to US Cellular (https://www.lg.com/us/cell-phones/lg-lmy120um0auclpl-us-cellular-wine-2).
LG Wine 2 Model# LG-LMY120QM is unlocked (almost impossible to get it, see: https://www.lg.com/us/cell-phones/lg-lmy120qm7abptpl-regional-carriers-acg-lra-wine-2#pdp_where ).
LG Classic Flip (Model# LG-L125DL) was specifically built for Tracfone (and its children-companies), and is not even listed on LG's website.




All three here, but can't get any of them on TMobile working properly with 4g LTE.

@myi there are some Engineering Mode menus you may need to play around with. Also Tmo tech support might need to authorize. Is it using "HD Calling" (Tmo's VOLTE)? Does WIFI calling work?

Don't know if it has WiFi calling, can check that tomorrow.
  And not sure if it has VoLTE.

Can try to call tomorrow and ask them to connect that phone, or rather register it on my account with the IMEI number and see if that works.

This is the type of thing Id expect from (legacy) Sprint, never heard of anything like that with T-mo.

I'm with you, if the device is compatible it would work like a charm.

 Don't think T-Mobile would be of much help.

Registiring or whatver they call it now is very much done albeit automatically everytime bc the carries intergrated with Apple/ Google play services. Good techinichains still know how to....

How do you activate the NET10 99 dollar eBay plan on the LG classic from Tracfone, when I put in the phone's IMEI number it says"Device is registered in another brand"?

You may need to Rebrand the phone. Call or chat with Net10.

Anyone know if Message+ works with TracFone? I have a Verizon phone that has the message+ app.
