What is that @will888 ?
It's an LG thing. Sometimes you need to use the network reset to get data to work.

Just signed for 36 plan. So far so good, but there are a couple of limitations:
- the system can store a maximum of 3 short voice messages at a time.
- there is no possibility to increase the number of rings before the voice message. Only way to disable voice messages.

Each restriction is not in itself critical, but together they multiply.
You get enhanced voicemail on the loyalty plan (after 6 months), or you can pay for it as an addon now.

Upgrade to enhanced voicemail (from mini to enhanced) - $5
From Mini voicemail, call display and name display to Enhanced voicemail, call display and name display. Store 35 voicemail messages up to 5 minutes each in length. Messages stored up to 10 days.

The G4 may need a network reset.
Request a new SIM card.

With Zoomer & going to the USA for 4 days next week. What is my best option if I want basic phone function like texting/calling without outrageous fees?
Roam mobility (might not be able to get a sim in time) or buy a prepaid sim from T-Mobile or Verizon when in you get to the US. The cost of a prepaid sim/plan from one of the US carriers ($20-30) is only a bit more expensive comparable to any of the "roam like home" features from the big 3.

$70 upfront on $36 plan.
$0 on $40.5 plan.
Update: it is $75 upfront for the $36 plan - not $70.

Unless you intend to stay the duration, it's not cheap to pay $300 for this phone. Zoomer is not designed for phone churning.

$40.5 plan has free unlimited incoming minutes. It costs you extra $108 for 24 months. If you don't need unlimited minutes, it is better to pay the $75 upfront to get the $36 plan.

Since BC does not have 911 charge, it will be $36 + 12% BC HST

GR5 is harder to sell because of the brand recognition. Do you get any low ball offers on Kijiji?
It may be easier to sell on eBay with more buyers than your local buyer. But the risk of getting scam is higher.

It will be a different story if our GR5 is a dual SIM version. :(
No one has found a way to hack it for dual SIM yet.
