I get my cell service from Consumer Cellular (which uses AT&T cell towers), reception at home has always been spotty, but OK. As of last week I now get absolutely nothing at home (even after 3 days no texts got through), Consumer Cellular says this is because of the 2G shutdown (we have 3G/4G capable phones). AT&T says we should have plenty of 3G reception, but won't do anything about it because we are not directly their customers. [more inside]

My friend has a 13 year old who has been getting into serious trouble; police got involved and a criminal charge is pending. His mom wants him to have a phone for emergency calls, text messaging, and to keep track of where he is by GPS. *But no apps like Kik, snapchat, hide photos in the fake calculator, and so on. What phone can do this on AT&T? [more inside]
I lost my cell phone over the weekend. I'm 8 months away from an upgrade (AT&T 2-year contract). I don't want to pay AT&T's exorbitant prices for a new phone that I'll get a good deal on in April. What are my cost-effective options in the interim? [more inside]

We were forced from Alltel to AT&T this spring, and got the freebie phone that was offered, which is, frankly, a rather crappy phone. But, this is the first phone I've ever had with a SIM card. Does that card mean I can get any phone with a SIM-card slot, insert the SIM, and - viola - it's suddenly my phone? [more inside]

Hi MeFites! I was wondering if anyone can enlighten me on how call forwarding on my cell phone will show up on phone records. Also, is it possible to call someone while routing through the original number (from the forwarded-to phone)? How would this show up on phone records? By the way, the phone records I will be talking about are on AT&T and are on the online website. If anyone knows ways to circumvent AT&T's tracking, I would like to hear that as well. One last question: Will simply enabling call forwarding itself change anything on the phone records and is this visible on the records? [more inside]

I hardly talk on the phone any more, when I do it's usually only a few minutes (last bill I used 60 of an available 500). So I could probably make do with a prepaid plan. However, I use data all the time; email, Google calendar, etc. Now many people out there have put the iPad data plan to use in assorted Android phones, granted that was before the AT&T unlimited cutoff. But has anyone done it after? Split voice and data to two devices? Is the slight hassle worth it? I'd use google voice to direct calls and such, wifi at work, home, many places I frequent so I'm not to worried about going over the 2 GB limit. Anyone out there with first hand experience?
I reallllly don't want to change my phone number, but it would be nice to be able to use my cell phone from home... [more inside]

Another ditch-the-cell-phone-bill/Google Voice question: Google Voice made me give them my cell phone number (800-OLD-CELL) when I signed up, and then assigned me a new number (800-GGL-VOIC). However, I don't have calls forwarded from the Google Voice number to my actual cell phone - Instead, everything goes to voicemail. What happens if I cancel my old cell phone number? [more inside]

So if you can get on the internet with your SE K800 and live in the US and use ATT please give me the settings or link to them thanks. and Also I live in the Philadelphia area so The phone works fine and once again can get on att with another triband phone.
It's come the time to buy a new cellphone. I have a RAZR V2 and it's falling apart. My Verizon contract is up in November. Should I re-up with Verizon and stay on my family plan or should I break off and/or go to another carrier? And what phone should I look into? All I know is that I do not want a huge fold out QWERTY keyboard like a 16-year-old girl with a Sidekick and probably do not want a Motorola. [more inside]

What's the best wireless phone service for the NYC area? I'm as fed up with Verizon as the next guy, but my limited experience with an iPhone in Manhattan left me with dropped/missed calls and very intermittent access to maps, etc. (unless already cached). Putting aside fun features that usually work, and imagining your life depended on receiving or making a phone call, which network would you choose?* *Please speak from experience with a carrier and nevermind the silly games they play (e.g., crippling bluetooth, etc.); I simply need a service that doesn't miss or drop calls.
