A very enticing offer & loads of info about it is around for use with that deal, I found.

My curiosity was not answered though - my query is this:
For someone like me in a region needing both CDMA & GSM services to avoid the signal problems, will a single E6 that seems to work for either be able to somehow use both types of services concurrently - or;
Does such a thing even exist without needing a special dual-SIM device of some sort ??

I've been quite content to carry 2 phones with me when out & about, but this idea popped into my head, so I'm asking what is most likely a silly question.

Also, I'm adding info here about this deal for anyone who may desire it:

It is said to work on Xfinity - which may be useful to some folks - if it really does...?

Reddit has a dedicated sub to making party plans for anyone wanting to stay on V, cheaper:
www.reddit.com/r/VisiblePartyPay/

Regarding that they want to get assured monthly payments - here is some payment cancellation info:

Use paypal and unlink the account at paypal after signup.

"TO DISABLE AUTOPAY
Open the Visible app on your phone.
Tap the Account button on the bottom navigation bar.
Tap the autopay toggle so that it's turned off. "

"To turn off the auto payment in PayPal:

Sign into your PayPal
Click the cog wheel, left of the Log Out
Click Payments
Click Manage Automatic Payments
Click Visible Service LLC
Click Cancel
You will see a pop-up warning that you are canceling future payments to Visible Service LLC
Click Cancel Automatic Payments
You will see a message, "You're good to go"
Click Done "

Seems also that cancellations can be done via SMS:
Text us at 99370

How do I cancel my service?
If you’re looking to port your number to a new carrier, chat with our Care team
to get the information you need (your account number and PIN).
Prefer to get a completely new number?
Adjust your billing settings to manual and let the payments lapse.
You're all set to go.


Regarding shipping and such:
(They send the Moto E6 by Fedex & the return is through UPS.)

Google Fi offers cellular coverage across three leading networks (T-Mobile, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular).

My bad, sorry !!
I should have added that all we have for service choices around here are AT&T or Verizon - with perhaps a sprinkle of Xfinity (which uses Verizon due to the tariff restrictions here...).

Also, I seem to recall that G Fi costs more for the one than what we've been paying to use Twigby & Redpocket, together...?

And...even if Xfinity mobile would work here, its monthly bill per line for taxes and data will exceed by far what we pay for Twigby at $12/mo/1GB +taxes.

You couldn't use this e6 for both AT&T & VZW on the fly. You could swap SIMs back and forth but whether you find that better than carrying 2 phones is up to you.

There is a dual SIM e6 but it is useless for VZW CDMA. Are there any dual sim phones that support VZW well? I'm not aware of one. When VZW finally puts CDMA to rest (EOL date is now year end 2020 but they have pushed the date before) maybe there will be a workable solution via a dual Sim phone.

A phone with esim (like Pixel 3a) MAY soon be able to do what you want but it may be a while until MVNO's support esim. You could have one service (Twigby) on the esim and another (freeup) on sim.

Tracfone is reported to be working on a hybrid system (kind of like Fi) that will use a few (all? No one is sure) MNOs and just put you on the strongest signal. ETA, service cost, phones that will be compatible/allowed all big ? still.

Well then, no biggie - just keep carrying 2 phones as I've been doing.

As to any miracles from TF, the final one from that company for me was when I found their LG L34C phones being sold off for $5 & got several of them for us as well as friends to use for MP3 players & even GPSs after rooting & de-bloating them.
That model was such a great little workhorse & I still use mine in the car to play tunes.

Otherwise, I find dealing with TF so distasteful that they'd have to be offering stuff for 100% free for me to even consider using them again - and even then I'd be suspicious & hesitant.

Totally agree re "trash phone" & their "CS" circus. I won't give shady Slim a penny, he doesn't need it. Red Pocket CS has been just as bad if not worse in my experience.

Will still be interested to see what they implement though. They are the 100 lb. gorilla in the MVNO world, may force others to follow/innovate.

Quite a few dual sim phones support verizon bands and work but most require activating on an approved phone and then sim swapping. a few like the iphone xr hong kong version activate on verizon. Umidigi have some relatively inexpensive dual sim phones with verizon bands including cdma if that is what you are looking for.

Thanks, wasn't aware.
Any idea which has most complete band support for VZW & AT&T?

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 and 3 also, if I'm remembering correctly from when I researched them. I suppose if I become sufficiently fed up with FreeUp and FreedomPop I'll find out, since my intent in that case is to replace one sim with Tracfone-V.
