Unfortunately the method is getting complicated because they're locking down Android. And I wouldn't go with a G7 - it's not 5G and they are going to be booting people off the network next year that don't go over to 5G. Google it. Tmobile and ATT have already announced this earlier this year.QUESTIONS -
I'm fixing to get one of these G7 Power, (Swappa says it's "unlocked") - should I root it BEFORE taking it to Metro for the SIM (their SIM cards put stuff in the phone)
And (moderator, please forgive me) I find one vendor on ebay (Craiglist is useless), this is a FAR more complex process than last time I rooted a phone (like, 2016)... Security being a grave concern these days you'd think one could find folks providing this service. It's simply I've gotten OLDer and the process has gotten harder.
As it is, I'm without cell phone at all because of that demonic VoLTE thing, and I cannot afford to mess up (again) - hint: do not let a carrier talk you into accepting "Oh we give free phone to old PPL"... Very expensive error.
