Re:Difficulty Activating on Sprint

Yes it will! Before with Sprint (Tello), a couple of APN settings had solved it (one solved it at some point, and then after an update a different APN setting would solve it), but now that I changed to the GSM SIM, the APN settings and other features are completely different and everything is perfect and smooth as heck, "just like the service of the big carriers", like it's supposed to be. Do it!

Thank you. I've been with them a long time and they have never mentioned that. This would defiantly make things better for me.

Re:Difficulty Activating on Sprint

Just an update as the person starting this thread. With Sprint having since merged with T-Mobile, when a couple of my family members updated to the iPhone 12, they were told to use a T-Mobile SIM in order to get access to 5G. With the latest iPhone 12 purchase, when I logged into my Sprint account to activate it, they also recommended that I just go ahead and transfer all of the phones on my account to a T-Mobile SIM, including my Moto G Stylus. 

Honestly, couldn't have been a smoother experience! I just went on the Sprint SIM swap website, and then when the SIM was activated, swapped it out and boom -- best connection I've had in years in my house. It even fixed my voicemail issues. Previously I was never able to get notifications of voicemail (only on the Moto G Stylus -- all other previous phones on Sprint worked fine) without using the Sprint Visual Voicemail app. Now it works fine on T-Mobile's default.  Wifi calling works fine. The only thing "missing" from when I was on a Sprint SIM is VoLTE, but I honestly don't know how much I need that (or used it).

So, if you're coming to this thread, my recommendation would be to simply activate the phone on T-Mobile, and I think you'll have a much better and easier experience.
