PHONE CALLING

Post New Topic

In addition to banking, I have some questions about making phone calls...

I have a Samsung Note 5 and have been with T-Mobile for 20 years. When the time comes to get my phone unlocked, what happens then? How would I then make phone calls in transit AND is there any way to keep the same phone number?

I'm sure there are questions I don't know to ask so feel free to tell me anything that could be helpful.

Thanks!

You can look at Google FI. Before leaving the US, you can transfer (and keep) your phone number to Google FI. You'll pay a bit (20 cents per minute for calls), but if you use WIFI, the costs should be low. There is a monthly fee that varies with how much data you use.

If you're interested, go to their website (https://fi.google.com/about/) and check it out.

The locked/unlocked has to do with if your phone is locked to your service providing . (In your case, T-Mobile). I don't know if your locked. With a unlocked phone you can use other provider. I use ATT and ATT Mexico.

When in Mexico I use a mexican chip in my phone, excellent service, all of Mexico, and for an extra 100 pesos, 7 CDN dollars, I get unlimited calling to Canada and the USA.,..
I like the Mexican phone providers.
