Yes, see below on my Exalt (with the Livigent block.)

Two other pros for the Exalt is:
1) The internet blocking is more secure and cannot be factory reset (for whom this matters.)
2) Much much more comfortable UI and options (I have used both, and while it is very hard to describe it is just much better.)


My Verizon cloud (contacts back up) stopped working suddenly, would you know how I can reset it or anything to do?
Comes up "Verizon Cloud has encountered an error. Please close application and try again (code:11)"
Any ideas why this happened?

No. But mine still works fine.

phone came today with this "in order to partially offset the subsidy Verizon ... this phone may only be used with Verizon Prepaid service for 1 yr/ until $50 in payments are received"

Does that mean I have to go through the trouble of manually unlocking it? Is that even possible? I'm not very familiar with unlocking "sugya", can anyone explain in laymen's terms if I'd need to/how I should for Red Pocket Mobile.
Thanks

"in laymen's terms" this is a Verizon Prepaid phone and cannot be used for anything else before using it for a year on Verizon prepaid.

...or paying $50 it seems. I did the math and it still came out cheaper than other options. I now have unlock code and hope all will work out.

Ime it has to be active for 6 months on Verizon prepaid before you can activate it on MNVO’s

There is no unlocking on Verizon , it’s not that the phone is locked, the only (illegal) way is to change the ESN number which not many people do these days

Got news?
Looks like it only supports LTE bands 4 & 13, T-mobile utilizes 2,4,12,66,71 so the only matching band would be 4

See this https://www.reddit.com/r/tmobile/comments/6k9ztf/will_i_survive_without_band_2_lte_in_the_nyc_area/

not really.. then again, we had a hectic month and couldn't put in much effort. Just easier for us to drop the whole thing and get a unlocked (not prepaid) phone and use this one for verizon
