    So this Indian accented guy called me about a limited time offer because I have a Sprint locked LG G7 for a free LG 8 inch tablet.
    Any others with Sprint LG G7s get this call?

    I found the comment about the 'Indian guy' hilarious, especially in conjunction with your warning.

    I had never been online or had a smartphone, nor did I want to.
    It was right at the point where cellular companies were forcing the switch from 2G to 3G phones.
    So, I had just bought a replacement phone, without knowing of this forced change.
    Anyway, as a longtime customer, AT&T has treated me well, and as they do with forced changes like this they offered to send me a compliant device.

    But, I was leery of the offer, because I was getting so many fake scam calls that I just figured that the calls and texts were some of the same.

    It was always some 'Indian guy', hahaha!

    Finally, I got fed up with the aggrevation and reported it multiple times.
    They continued anyway, and finally in exasperation I told them what they wanted to hear and told them to send me a free phone.

    So, it came in the mail and that began my Android journey.

    Even better, I soon found that the phone that I had just purchased was an oddball in that I could put the 3G sim card from the smartphone into it, and it would continue to work anyway.

    So, I used the Android as a miniature tablet, and was free to experiment and learn without worry of bricking my cellular device.

    I still have that old 2G phone with the 3G sim, and it is now my emergency cellphone.

    I also still have a cheap Android that I pulled the sim out and use as a tiny tablet on Wi-Fi.
