Cell Phone Talk and Text only?
« on: November 18, 2021, 06:52:34 PM »
Does anybody have any recommendations of a cheap talk and text only plan I can get for my son? I had sprint (overpaid) but they discontinued the network.

"Porting your number to US Mobile’s prepaid phone plans is made simple during our SIM activation process. You can port your number if your current service carrier allows it, there is no outstanding payment against your number, and the number is not under any contract. The phone number must also be active in order to be ported over."

Have your phone set as the forwarding number and dial your GV number from your phone

Right. I forgot the is a setting in gv to have the registered phone number logged in automatically. Otherwise you need to first go in as if you were listening to voicemail.

Interesting feature. Got to try that out.

can it call israel ?
If you were on Sprint, and that they now merged with Tmobile just go with Tello for $8 Talk and text with international calling to almost every country for free.

For $8/month? What are you smoking?
"US Mobile customers can receive international calls, but cannot make outbound international calls. Roaming is currently not available"
Call thru Google voice.
See above.

You need to go to Legacy Voice and then go to the phone number's advanced settings.

Wow! Thank you! It works great!

Just a pointer; if you have an obi device for your home phone, you should set this up on a different Google voice number, otherwise you won't be able to call home.
