No one has been successful, They're all hitting a roadblock.

But it may eventually pan out

In the thread I posted the link to- the second post in the thread user jfn0802 said they'd been using adb to sideload apps. But they haven't been online since like October... Everyone else I've seen is running into INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_INCONSISTENT_CERTIFICATES, as am I.

But it may will eventually pan out. Though by that time we might be on to the next device.
FTFY.

Definitely not. Samsung's folder phones are not made for the US, and there's no Asian market phone that works on VZW.

Even more definite... Lenovo, Huawei, Xiaomi and the like never made a phone compatible with Verizon. (besides the fact that this model is very old running Android 4.4.)

If there's any SIP softphone app that works on it, you should be able to get it to work using simonics.com

Looking for the other app for text and placing outgoing calls using the shadow numbers.

I'm looking for a good old flip (dumb) phone for every day use.

I was always a Nokia fan. What would you guys recommend?
