I’m currently with Sprint and if I have to buy a new phone I’m considering RW and the Moto E 4. But I have a few of questions:
1 If I buy the E 4 from RW, and I like the phone but not the service, would I be able to cancel the service and then switch the phone to Sprint? The reason I ask is because the E 4 is supposed to be unlocked and therefore should work with any carrier. But in the specs for the phone it says, “GSM (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz); CDMA (temporarily unavailable): (800, 850, 1900 MHz)”
So RW’s E 4 wouldn’t work on Sprint - even with their sim card - since they’re CDMA? Are there any other carriers that this RW phone wouldn’t be compatable with (this is also important to know in case I want to sell it in the future)?
1b I guess if I want to be sure it would be compatable with any other carrier, I should buy the unlocked phone somewhere else and buy the SIM card from RW. Would that be right? What if it isn’t the XT1768? Would an unlocking code unlock it so it can be used on RW?
2 If I do switch from Sprint to RW and shift my phone number to the new phone, would I be able to switch the phone number back to Sprint if I decided to leave RW? Just want to be sure.
3 I also want to be sure about making and answering calls, hands-free, with the E 4. Any set of head phones with a mic, using voice commands, would allow me to do that, correct?
4 Haven’t been keeping up to date with RW. They did have rebate plans for unused data. I don’t see them available now, but read on these message boards that some still have them. Were they grandfathered in?
