    the service sucks the unlimited talk text and wireless is a lie and you constantly have to call in to get minutes if you quote run out of your unlimited which they don’t mean understand with unlimited means plan and then you have to go through the hill and then they don’t answer your phone so unlimited why are your tail Wireless is a joke and sucks sometimes it would be easier to go without a phone but in emergency cases it is okay I accept I guess so other than that it being a free service other than it being a free service to the government it sucks and they can track your phone intervene in anything you do and hack your website and change everything so I don’t trust them!!!!!

      If it’s an Android phone, try uninstalling any Facebook and Google+ apps. Come back and let us know how this works.
